The corruption trial against former Cuyahoga county commissioner and county Democratic chairman, Jimmy Dimora, began last week in federal court in Akron. Newsmakers are not allowed to film in the courtroom, so each day Cleveland’s WOIO-TV is presenting puppetizations of the proceedings. “The testimony is real. The puppets are not.” The testimony includes bribery, racketeering, gambling, prostitutes, sexually transmitted diseases, and refrigerators. In one scene, a furry hand stuffs cash down the shirt of a puppet prostitute.
