Senator Carl Kruger Gets 7 Years; His Gynecologist Boyfriend Gets 2 Years
Friends of Ours ^ | 04/26/12 | Friends of Ours

Posted on 04/26/2012 4:01:48 PM PDT by AtlasStalled

New York State Senator Carl Kruger and his doctor boyfriend Michael Turano were sentenced to 7 and 2 years, respectively, for their roles in a bribery scheme which shook down the politician's constituents and laundered the funds through dummy corporations to finance their lavish lifestyle as reported by the New York Post:

In the "pay-to-play" scheme, the then-senator directed illicit payments from representatives of the real-estate, hospital, supermarket and beverage industries to shell companies set up by Turano. In return, Kruger, 63, sponsored legislation beneficial to to the bribe-payers, tried to steer millions of dollars in pork-barrel funds to, and even once wrote a favorable letter to a Buffalo federal judge.

The pair lived together in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn in a waterfront McMansion originally constructed for Lucchese boss Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso.

No word if the paramours will be allowed to bunk together in prison.

If it's a Democrat, it's usually never mentioned. If it's a Republican, it's always in the first line.

Yes, the fact that the party affiliation of a SENATOR wasn’t mentioned tells us everything we need to know.

So he’s a fag as well as a criminal. And gets to keep his pension.

We need to change some stuff in our government.

Yeah, I guess we could say busy little beavers - but, no, that wouldn’t apply here would it?

Wow! They actually caught a politician for pay to play! This is because they were flamboyant about their game. Loud and proudly corrupt; it's the gay way!

Another example of all animals are not equal. As I recall, many, if not all law enforcement agencies have provisions that a crime conviction, perhaps only a felony results in pension forfeiture.

Yes, Al Stewart music is my drug of choice. BTW, his last two albums, in 2005 and 2008, were phenomenal. I’ve seen him about twice a year since 2001 within a 3 hour radius of Scranton, and he never fails to deliver.
As for Mitt’s appointments, they have been deplorable, but it’s him or the Punk right now. Best, Bob
