Corruption in Government Tuesday's Sound of Ideas® will have the latest on the FBI and IRS investigations into corruption in Cuyahoga County government. Up to 200 federal agents executed search warrants at the county administration building Monday as well as at homes of several county officials. Employees were told to go home. An FBI spokesman said the searches are part of a "long-term public corruption investigation" but gave no hint of what exactly the law enforcement officials are looking for. SOI will have journalists and others on with the latest developments, plus analysis of where the investigation might lead and how it might affect county government reform efforts.
