The Tips

Just 15 minutes ago deansguide received a call from the Miami “mystery caller” who tipped us to information on Ed Okun last summer; simultaneously we received two emails from long time supporter, and one of the 350 Okun “Train Wreck” victims, Elizabeth Callanan. Although the delivery was quite different, the message was quite clear: Ed Okun is being criminally charged.

Information will be provided as further details become known. But for now as this ongoing saga evolves, Ed Okun is behind bars–something most people thought would never happen in this case.
