Rocky Patel's name was used by undercover FBI agent to get evidence on a CA senator!!

A California State Senator Ron Calderon was busted by "Rocky Patel" this week for taking bribes. Apparently the FBI agent that went under cover as a Hollywood producer a few years ago used the name Rocky Patel. He had to use an alias that when "Googled" wouldn't cause too much suspicion. It's been said he's a huge fan of cigars and Rocky Patels are among his favorites so why not. This worked out well because if you try and Google his name you would obviously be inundated with cigar related responses making the person unaware that his name was fake.

Only in California!!

Here is the full story.
