State Government Corruption Hits Could Keep Coming In 2016

Ken Lovett reports in the Daily News today:

“As state lawmakers return to Albany this week, the stench of corruption scandals that hung over the Capitol in 2015 is not expected to dissipate any time soon.

Not only does U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara still have ongoing probes after already having convicted the two top legislative leaders last year, but state Board of Elections Chief Enforcement Officer Risa Sugarman has referred a number of cases for criminal prosecution as well.

“Everyone is on edge waiting for the next public official to be indicted ,” said Dick Dadey, executive director of Citizens Union.”

Since her office opened in September, 2014, Sugarman has opened 185 cases that so far has resulted in the issuance of 25 subpoenas and 11 cases referred for criminal prosecution to the state Attorney General’s Office or local district attorneys.
