What’s the most amount of money you can jam in a bra? One woman was determined to set the record for nefarious reasons. Her grand total? $79,600. What was the occasion?
When Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson and his wife, County Council member Leslie Johnson, were arrested last Friday with tens of thousands in alleged payola, authorities said the couple found an uplifting place to hide it.
With FBI agents pounding on the door, Johnson, in a wiretapped conversation, advised his wife to cram $79,600 into her underwear. She managed to get it all into her bra, agents said.
The highest-value note currently lining wallets in the United States is the $100 bill. In the most convenient scenario, the Johnson family’s loot would have been entirely in Benjamins. At a gram each, 796 bills would weigh around 1.75 pounds and, if stacked horizontally, stand about 3 1/2 inches in height, according to a rep from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
All that you could theoretically jam into a rather large bra. Just imagine if Denise Milani tried. She’d be a millionaire!
