Ted G. Loza, chief of staff to D.C. Council Member Jim Graham (D-Ward 1), was arrested today.

D.C. Council Member Jim Graham's (D-Ward 1) chief of staff, Ted G. Loza, was arrested Thursday morning. Loza was arrested by federal agents on bribery charges.

UPDATE: D.C. Republican party responds to Loza's arrest with the following statement:

"The arrest of Jim Graham's chief of staff on bribery charges only reminds us that the D.C. Council's new ethic laws are as strong as a cup of tea. District residents are suffering for the Council's lack of leadership and ethics under Graham and Gray," stated Robert J. Kabel, Chairman of the D.C. Republican Committee.
