John Ashe, the former president of the United Nations General Assembly, was hit with federal charges on Tuesday for his alleged role in a $1.3 million bribery scheme that prosecutors say involves Chinese businessmen, a multi-billion dollar conference center in Macau, and dirty money being spent on Rolex watches, custom suits, and a private basketball court at Ashe's New York home.
Prosecutors from the US Attorney's Office in New York City announced the case on Tuesday, explaining that a total of five individuals were charged with bribery-related counts, while Ashe was charged with tax fraud for not paying taxes on bribes he accepted in 2013 and 2014.
