The FIFA corruption scandal just got more heated, as the official responsible for racketeering $10 million in bribe money has been discovered.
The New York Times states that Jerome Valcke is behind this monstrous scandal, as he allegedly transferred $10 million to former FIFA vice president Jack Warner.
This money was drawn from the FIFA organization, and Warner accepted this bribe money in exchange for voting in favor of South Africa hosting the 2010 World Cup. South Africa ultimately ended up being the destination.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been accused of playing a role in this scandal and was even rumored to be the one who sent the $10 million to Warner.
Although he is innocent of this particular incident, it still remains to be seen whether Blatter had any other involvement in the racketeering and money laundering that took place.
Valcke has not been charged during the scandal, but that is likely to change if the investigation proves that he is in fact the culprit behind this villainous act.
He is currently the highest-ranked FIFA official that has not been elected, and he is sure to be in trouble along with the other officials that have already been indicted, including two vice presidents.
