What, no Freezers in Argentina?

Via the BBC:  Argentine ex-Finance Minister Miceli jailed for corruption

Former Argentina Finance Minister Felisa Miceli has been sentenced to four years in prison for corruption.

A court found her guilty of covering up an allegedly illegal financial operation and of obstructing justice.

Mrs Miceli – who was also barred from public office for eight years – said she would prove her innocence.

She resigned in 2007 after a bag with about $52,000 (£32,000) in mixed currencies was found in the bathroom of her office.

I mean, geez, William Jefferson was able to get $90K into his freezer, so why store the cash is such a cramp, dirty place as an office bathroom?

    I hope she washed her hands after she hid the money.

    Methinks that money needs to be laundered.
