(1) State Department documents concerning visa applications and visas issued to the twenty-one STS Jewels employees, wherever or whenever issued; (2) post-visa issuance (i.e., post-Indictment) State Department analysis, emails, or other documents concerning the twenty-one STS Jewels employees; and (3) documents in the possession of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“CIS”) concerning the work authorizations or permanent residence status (e.g., H-1, L-1, Green Cards) of the twenty-one STS Jewels employees.
(28) On or about May 31, 2005, a consular officer at the Consulate in Toronto was in the process of interviewing P.S.B., S.K.B. and I.S.B., respectively, an STS Jewels employee and his family members. The consular officer was in the process of notifying the family that it would be denying their visas on that day pending an additional inquiry when defendant MICHAEL JOHN O'KEEFE, Sr. appeared and stated that he would be taking over the adjudication of the visas, which he did.
A mayor is guilty of accepting a bribe even if he would and should have taken, in the public interest, the same action for which the bribe was paid. (That is frequently the defense asserted to a criminal bribery charge-and though it is never valid in law, see, e.g., United States v. Jannotti, 673 F.2d 578, 601(CA3) (en banc), cert. denied, 457 U.S. 1106, 102 S.Ct. 2906, 73 L.Ed.2d 1315 (1982), it is often plausible in fact.)
