Go on, take the money and run….to Stanford?

So Peru announced a 100,000 Soles bounty on the head of that desperado, Alejandro Toledo, its president from 2001 to 2006, who’s accused of taking in millions in bribes while in office.

Some observations:

That’s about $30,000 making Toledo 1/833 as evil as Saddam or Bin Laden ($25 million).

Toledo is an unpaid “visiting scholar” at Stanford with an office and library privileges so it shouldn’t be too hard to find him.

If he really has $20 million in ill-gotten booty, couldn’t he just offer $31,000 to NOT capture him?

Is the government of Peru unaware that they have an extradition treaty with the USA (since 2001 ironically enough)?

Since I was once mistaken for Toledo by a crowd of Peruvians in 2000, this whole situation has me marginally more jittery than usual.

These kinds of prosecutions are often just political payback and posturing, but in this case the ex CEO of the bribing company is directly saying they bribed Toledo.

Maybe Alejandro could get the cell next to Fujimori??
