A New York State senator from the Hudson Valley says he is disgusted by the latest political corruption case. His colleague, Democratic Senator John Sampson, faces several charges, including embezzlement.

Democratic Senator Terry Gipson says the Sampson case is another example of why there is an urgent need for comprehensive campaign finance and ethics reform in New York.

Sampson is the latest in a number of elected officials to be charged with political corruption this year.
