Oops! $3500 buys a $1,000,000 contract for a Ricoh Sales Rep

from MidHudson News: Covering the Hudson to the Catskills!:
"Arthur Rose, 50, of Mount Vernon, was convicted of soliciting and accepting a bribe of $10,000 to donate to his church from a vendor of custodial supplies in exchange for future business, which was later awarded.

He also accepted a $3,500 bridge from a sales representative of Ricoh Americas Corporation for his assurance the company would receive a five year contract from the school district for 73 digital copiers, support products and related services. Based on his recommendation, the district awarded the contract with a cost of over $1 million."
