NY Marriage Flip-Flopper Sen. Carl Kruger Resigns, Pleads Guilty

 

Finally some remedial justice applied to Albany corruption:

New York state Sen. Carl Kruger has resigned the office he has held since 1994 and then pleaded guilty to participating in bribery schemes in which he accepted nearly half a million dollars in exchange for taking official actions, according to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

"With Senator Kruger's guilty plea today, yet another lawmaker-turned-lawbreaker has now been removed from an undeserved position of power in Albany," Bharara said. "Instead of serving the people who elected him, Senator Kruger monetized his public office and served himself. The people of New York expect, deserve and demand honesty and integrity from their public servants. We will not pause in our fight to hold New York's representatives accountable for violating the public's trust, no matter how difficult the challenges presented." -- FOX New York
