This "Asset Search News Roundup" is about "politically exposed persons" who are accused of hiding cash during alleged bribe-taking.  One such person is Governor José Roberto Arruda of Brasilia.  "Brazil in shock as secret video catches ‘corrupt’ governor red-handed", reports that Brazilian Federal Police in "Operation Pandora" possess surveillance video of  the Governor supposedly pocketing bribe money.  Others related to the Governor are also under suspicion for hiding cash bribes because of "Operation Pandora". 

The Governor’s press secretary and former Cabinet chief were both videotaped suspiciously counting cash into a bag.  The leader of the Governor’s regional government was filmed possibly hiding a bribe in her handbag.  A video clip reveals that "Tribuna do Brasil" newspaper owner Alcyr Collaço, might too have concealed a bribe in his underpants.  "Corruption Allegations Against Federal District Governor" reveals that a different video, could show Brazilian lawmakers Rubens Júnior César Brunelli and Leonardo Prudente praying after the supposed secret transfer of a bribe. 

One U.S. lawmaker similarly accused of hiding bribes is former Massachusetts state senator Dianne Wilkerson.  The surveillance video / still photos at "Public Corruption Charges Against Two Politically Exposed Persons" allegedly show her concealing a bribe by stuffing it into her bra.  A pretrial conference in her public corruption case is currently scheduled for December 15, 2009, according to the relevant docket report:
