32 NY Officials Snared For Corruption In 7 Years
With the arrest Monday of another former state Senate majority leader, New York has seen 32 state level officials snared in corruption cases in the last seven years.
The fourth arrest in the last four weeks came as legislators and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who campaigned on cleaning up Albany, have repeatedly insisted it has shed its dysfunctional past.
Bill Mahoney of the New York Public Interest Research Group says that isn’t true.
New Yorkers seemed to doubt it, too.
More than 80 percent of New Yorkers surveyed two weeks ago for a Siena College poll predicted another indictment.
On Monday, a federal prosecutor accused Democrat Sen. John Sampson of Brooklyn of funneling embezzled funds into his failed campaign for Brooklyn district attorney.
