Swift movement was made by the United States Attorney's Office as indictments were handed down. The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma said it was misled and cheated out of money.

The investigation involved plans for expensive trips, handbags, and thousands of dollars worth in jewelry. All of it allegedly comes from bribes and conspiracy. Multiple people pleaded guilty in federal court today, accused of paying a bribe to an employee, officer or tribal government.

"We literally have a war room filled to the ceiling with boxes of records," said Doug Horn, U.S. state attorney assistant.

FOX23 was there as the stack full of allegations compiled by the FBI and IRS were laid out. The investigation has been ongoing since 2008.
