Mexican Drug Cartel Laundered Millions Via Bank Of America Into U.S. Horse Racing

Jose Trevino Morales, at left, helps lead Mr Polito after the quarter horse won the All American Futurity in 2010.  The firm Mr. Morales operates is alleged by the FBI to be a front for a Mexican drug cartel that used Bank of America to launder tens of millions of illicit drug profits.

This is not a surprise.  By some accounts, it was cash from drug cartels that helped save the U.S. banking system in 2008.  Wells Fargo (via Wachovia) and BofA were busted 2 years ago.  Here's a Bloomberg refresher on that story.

According to an FBI agent, a horse-buying and training business created to launder drug money had accounts at the Charlotte, N.C., bank.

The FBI agent's sworn statement describes roughly a dozen transactions since December 2009 in which more than $1.5 million was deposited or withdrawn from two accounts at the bank.

During a roughly two-year period, according to the FBI agent, the Zetas allegedly funneled about $1 million a month into the purchase of quarter horses.

Bank of America, aren't these the same guys that charge 24.98% (at least) to their credit card users, AND, who contributed GENEROUSLY to GW Bush's Presidential "Campaigns" (there is evidence, of course, that GW Bush and Co. STOLE, both the 2000, AND, the 2004 "Election" - but, then, what difference does it really make, when Central Banker-supported AGW Alarmist, Al Gore is also a Yale Skull & Bones' Alum/Member, as is John Kerry! THE ILLUSION of "choice". Funny, how ALL things are connected!
