ALPHA Rock KUFO/PORTLAND, OR morning maniac KIDD CHRIS received a visit from the Secret Service last THURSDAY morning, after the show broadcast what is described as a "how to" class on bleaching and counterfeiting money, reports KPTV. During the show, KIDD CHRIS or his co-workers were bleaching genuine currency, a Secret Service official said.
Bleaching currency is a federal offense. The agents told KIDD CHRIS to stop bleaching the money immediately. No criminal charges are expected to be filed against the station or KIDD CHRIS.
KUFO PD DITCH said the station received numerous calls about the incident and that many were in support of KIDD CHRIS. "I wasn't that concerned about it going over the airwaves at the time because of the discussion going on with listeners," said DITCH. "It was interesting to them and they were engaged in it."
