CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - After a two year wait, more than 1,200 exhibits in the Cuyahoga County corruption case against Jimmy Dimora were released Thursday.
The damaging evidence is what put the former county commissioner behind bars.
Cleveland 19 News made repeated requests for the evidence. Dimora fought the release, but lost his fight last month to keep the evidence under wraps.
The exhibits include hundreds of recordings and transcripts between the 59-year-old and several others who were involved in the massive corruption scandal.
The information reveals the depth of the corruption that basically controlled county government in the executive, legislative, and portions of the judicial branch.
FBI surveillance pictures and videos from Dimora and others show them going to card games at Stonebridge, waterfront condos in Cleveland. These card games included prostitutes as entertainment. Some of the prostitutes were specifically requested by Dimora.
Dimora is serving 28 years in a federal prison.
