BELOW ARE SOME OF THE HORRIFIC DETAILS BEING ALLEGED:
READ THE ENTIRE COMPLAINT AT THIS LINK:
As a result of Dickert’s and his cohorts’ numerous acts of soliciting and receiving bribes, extorting, threatening or incentivizing alderpersons to comply with his and the Financiers’ desires regarding liquor licenses, extorting business people for additional money, wire fraud to conceal the nature and existence of these payments, Dickert gained control of the government of Racine and used that control against certain individuals and businesses in Racine.
Monte Osterman on behalf and at the behest of Dickert, approached Caleb Robinson—who was attempting to sell hot dogs on and around Monument Square and was facing resistance—to “shake him down.” Dickert would have benefited from the receipt of this elicit money and Osterman would have also benefited by receipt of money or preferential treatment from Dickert. Shortly after this visit, Mr. Robinson was granted approval to sell hot dogs from his mobile cart in front of city owned property.
Monte Osterman acted on behalf of Dickert when, he approached Business Owner, Caleb Robinson and others to demand that they pay money to Dickert, which would be delivered to him by Osterman, in exchange for Dickert undertaking official acts that directly affected their prospective business ventures. Also at the direction of Dickert,
Monte Osterman threatened those individuals who declined to pay bribe monies to Dickert. Specifically, Osterman warned that Dickert would take official action against Business Owner, Caleb Robinson or any other individual who refused to pay him money “under the table,” and that the
official action would negatively affect their business interests.
Monte Osterman’s actions evidence his agreement to participate in the scheme perpetrated by Dickert and the Financiers to control the city of Racine’s government and the commercial and personal benefits attendant to such control. Monte Osterman benefitted from his participation in that he was able to use Dickert’s control over the Racine city government to his advantage. Specifically, Dickert allowed Osterman to position himself as the go-to granite company for construction projects in Racine. Osterman threatened those developers who refused to give him business by reminding them of his close relationship with, and influence over, Dickert.
Monte Osterman, at the direction of Dickert, demanded Business Owner provide him cash for Dickert or Business Owner’s plan to develop a gas station on the west side of downtown Racine would not win the necessary approval from the Mayor and city departments. As part of his effort to extort money from Business Owner and to demonstrate the control Dickert held over the alderman and common council, Osterman called an alderman who had been creating problems for Business.
Dickert would have benefited from the receipt of this elicit money and
Osterman would have also benefited by receipt of money or preferential
treatment from Dickert. When Business Owner refused to become Dickert and Osterman’s personal ATM machine, his planned development on the west side of downtown Racine was terminated.
Dickert accepted the bribe monies paid by the Financiers and, in exchange, ran the city of Racine’s government in a corrupt fashion which deprived Racine, its residents and its business community at large of his honest services.
In particular, Dickert had Jerger report the bribes as campaign contributions in Dickert’s 2009 and 2011 campaign finance reports. Further, Dickert and Jerger would attribute the bogus
contributions to people other than the Financiers and for amounts different than the Financiers had provided to Dickert. To ensure there was no disruption to the scheme, Dickert threatened to remove
any alderman from the Licensing Committee, or any other influential position they held, if they failed to “play ball.” Dickert further threatened to support candidates to run against these aldermen in the next election cycle.
