Federal authorities yesterday charged the chauffeur of former Washington Teachers' Union President Barbara A. Bullock with helping union officials launder and spend missing funds.
Leroy Holmes, the first to face criminal charges in the misappropriation of more than $5 million in union funds, was charged with conspiracy to launder proceeds of an unlawful activity.
Court documents state that Mr. Holmes accepted and cashed checks totaling more than $1 million from late 1997 until the fall of 2002. The documents say Mr. Holmes gave the cash to union officials, took the officials on spending sprees and kept some of the money for himself. He also benefited from phony tax returns prepared for him and others, the documents say.
A date has not yet been set for Mr. Holmes' arraignment.
