The state senator collected at least $1 million in bribes.
New York Senator Carl Kruger pleaded guilty in United States District Court in Manhattan yesterday to federal corruption charges.
Prosecutors offered a complex tale of federal wiretaps, bribes in return for political favors, and Kruger living in a mansion built for the boss of a New York crime family.
Kruger could face a sentence of up to 50 years.
The New York Times covers the news in “After Resigning, Tearful Senator Pleads Guilty to Accepting Bribes” by William Rashbaum.
