The former COO of the Fiesta Bowl has been indicted on charges of filing false income tax returns for the bowl game, the first charges against a former official of the Bowl Championship Series member since a scathing report led to the firing of its president in March. Wisneski also faces federal campaign finance and conspiracy charges over allegations she solicited campaign contributions from bowl employees for federal, state and local political candidates and arranged for the bowl to repay them. The U.S. attorney's office in Phoenix announced the indictment Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011. (AP Photo/The Arizona Republic, John Severson) MARICOPA COUNTY OUT NO SALES
