*We just reported on New York’s dirty politics April 8, with the story of Malcolm A. Smith attempting to bribe his way into the mayoral race with the help of a couple others.
Now, another state senator is going down and others are going with him.
State Sen. John Sampson (D-Brooklyn) thought he would charge the city a gratuity on every foreclosure he managed for the city. He was the acting attorney, that a foreclosure requires, for several foreclosures that he embezzled from.
But NO! Sampson figured there must be a tip in there for him somewhere and his tip equaled $440,000, according to New York Daily News.
