Former Don Young Aide Frasier Verrusio Found Guilty in Public Corruption Case


The Anchorage Daily News has Web-published an Associated Press story that a jury has returned guilty verdicts against Frasier Verrusio, a former aide to U.S. Rep. Don Young, R.-Alaska. The case centered on Verrusio's lobbyist-financed junket to a 2003 World Series game in New York City that included a stop at a strip joint. According to the AP, the jury has found Verrusio guilty of conspiracy, accepting an illegal gratuity, and making a false statement for failing to report the trip on his Congressional financial disclosure form. More to come.
