Sources close to the investigation that led to the FBI raid on the home and state house office of former speaker Gordon Fox, tell DePetro.com a person cooperating with the FBI passed Fox " marked bills of cash ". It has been over a week since the raid and law enforcement has been silent regarding the investigation. A source close to the speaker says a person " close to Fox" was cooperating with the FBI and passed Fox " marked bills". A source says authorities then somehow " lost" Fox , but knew the " marked cash "was either at his home or state house office. The head of the state police told the Projo, " Mr Fox knows exactly why we were there, and if we hesitated, we may have lost it."In Police corruption investigations, many times a cooperating informant agrees to be both wired and filmed, passing " marked bills" to another,( Marked bills.. ) The authorities can then show a jury a " before" and " after " regarding the cash.
