EX-CONGRESSMAN CONVICTED OF PERJURY

Former Rep. Pat Swindall of Georgia was convicted of nine counts of perjury June 20 for lying to a federal grand jury about a money-laundering scheme. The Republican, who served two terms in Congress before being defeated in November, could receive up to five years in prison plus fines of $250,000 on each count at sentencing Aug. 25.

The former congressman was accused of lying to a grand jury in 1988 about his 1987 negotiations with an IRS agent posing as a drug-money launderer and with Swindall associate Charles LeChasney, later convicted of money laundering.
