Well when criminals vote you into office they don't seem to mind that you are a criminal. It just makes them their brotha. This is the part that makes me laugh.

When you find marked money in someone's freezer it would see that it is logical that they may have hidden something in their office, ESPECIALLY since they assumed no one would look there. It is not like they are taking classified information and giving it to the prosecuter they have a procedure set up to filter through the information first.
