A Chicago developer and political campaign contributor pleaded guilty today in federal court to acting as a go-between in a bribe-for-permits scheme.

Beny Garneata, a Lincolnwood resident, admitted that, in December 2007, he acted as a go-between to pass on a bribe to a city plumbing inspector while pocketing some of the cash.
