Behind the grey facade of the U.S. consulate in Toronto, Michael John O'Keefe Sr. was allegedly fast-tracking visa applications and reversing visa refusals for 21 people at the behest of Sunil Agrawal, the CEO of STS Jewels Inc., an international manufacturer and distributor of jewellery and gems.
As thanks, Mr. Agrawal funded luxurious trips to Las Vegas and New York for Mr. O'Keefe and two exotic dancers, sent jewellery and gift baskets, and even invited Mr. O'Keefe to attend charity functions as an honoured guest, U.S. prosecutors say.
There have been accusations from our neighbours to the south about the porosness of the Canada/US border. Hmmmm ... I wonder which American border officials one has to bribe to get whomever and whatever one wants through the border?
But, dude. Taking Canadian strippers to the capital of strippers? It doesn't make sense!
