United States: FBI Arrests Cincinnati Councilwoman on Bribery Charges

Federal authorities Tuesday arrested a Cincinnati city councilwoman on charges alleging that she offered to sell her vote.

Tamaya Dennard, 40, was released Tuesday afternoon pending a March 16 hearing.

Elected in November 2017, Dennard is charged with three counts including bribery accusing her of trying to sell votes.

Federal authorities said “a concerned citizen” who works for a law firm contacted law enforcement and worked with the FBI. An affidavit states Dennard received a total $15,000 last year. Federal investigators said she quickly spent more than $4,000 on a Florida trip.
