Politicians - N.Y. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver
In the New York Daily News, Kenneth Lovett, John Marzulli, & Greg B. Smith let us know all the details:
"'For many years, New Yorkers have asked the question, ‘How could Speaker Silver, one of the most powerful men in New York, earn millions of dollars in outside income without deeply compromising his ability to honestly serve his constituents?’' said Bharara.
'Today we provide the answer: He didn’t.'
The stunning five-count criminal complaint accused the Manhattan Democrat, an Albany power broker for decades, with pocketing millions in bribes and kickbacks in return for wielding his massive influence."
