Bribes Over $18 Million-Dollar-Deal for Wastewater Treatment Plant

Ex-Mesa legislator, Pinal developer indicted for bribery

Gotta wonder, huh?

[Infographic inserted to show that here in Mesa Water + Wastewater Treatment are more than half of expenses] 
Norton, who at the time worked for the lobbying firm R&R Partners, and an unnamed, unindicted co-conspirator agreed to arrange the payments between Pierce and Johnson. The co-conspirator created a consulting firm that  contracted with Johnson International and was paid roughly $7,000 per month. That consulting firm then paid Sherry Ann Pierce $3,500 a month for 10 months in 2011 and 2012 for what amounted to a job that included little more than “simple tasks.”
Norton and Pierce also made plans in late 2011 to purchase a $350,000 piece of land together, court documents show, using money that would have been provided by Johnson.
