Another great example of how in most bribery and corruption cases, anti-money laundering laws also seem to be broken.
Even though the indictment emerged from the use of pay to play schemes to solicit bribes, additional indictments were handed down on the use of shell companies and fake vendors (non existent consulting services) to funnel bribes.
Clark and Kinsella were also indicted on charges of money laundering. Kinsella is accused of paying Clark by funneling money through a limited-liability company to a shell company. The filing alleges that Kinsella created fake invoices and that Clark used those to bill GSI for nonexistent consulting services. Kinsella was also accused of granting Clark an undisclosed 5% ownership interest in GSI, for which Clark received $3.6 million after the company was sold in 2016.
