The bribery scandal involving the D.C. taxicab industry heads to court this week.
Thirty-seven suspects are scheduled to appear in federal court Wednesday. The suspects are charged with trying to bribe the taxi cab commissioner for fraudulent licenses.
On Friday, Ted Loza, chief of staff to D.C. Council Member Jim Graham, is due in court. Loza is charged with accepting cash and other gifts to help steer taxicab legislation through his boss's office.
Federal prosecutors say the sweeping investigation was launched more than two years ago, when someone offered a bribe to D.C. Taxicab Commissioner Leon Swain. Instead of pocketing the cash, the former D.C. police officer alerted the FBI and started wearing a wire for them.
