The charges against the head of Rio 2016. Corruption and bribery!

Carlos Nuzman, the head of last year's Rio de Janeiro Olympics, has been charged by Brazilian federal prosecutors with corruption, money laundering, tax evasion and running a criminal organization. Brazilian prosecutors announced the formal charges on Wednesday.

The 75-year-old Nuzman was arrested two weeks ago and is being held in prison. Prosecutors also filed corruption charges against Nuzman's right-hand man at the Rio Olympic organizing committee, Leonardo Gryner. Brazilian and French authorities say Nuzman helped pay $2 million US to Papa Massata Diack to win votes to stage the 2016 Olympics.
