Democrat used trickery for gaining power, court papers show. Now resigned, state Assemblyman Nelson Castro---a Dominican Republic native---schemed to illegally register dozens of latino voters, and forged signatures on petitions to seek office earlier as a Democrat district leader. The revelations were spelled out in a deal in which feds agreed not to prosecute in return for Castro's wearing a wire to nail his shady Democrat colleagues. Castro admitted to lying about dozens of (illegals) registered to vote using his address.

VOTINO FRAUD SCAM--FACILITATED BY IMMIGRATION ADVOCATES
IS CASTRO A LEGAL US CITIZEN? Considered a "rising star" by some in the Bronx political scene, Nelson Castro grew up in the Dominican Republic, came to the U.S. when he was 11 years old, and later became the first Dominican to be elected to public office in the Bronx.
Castro made immigration issues one of his focuses, and was madechairman of the NY state Assembly Task Force on New Americans.
"Here was a young man with a great future ahead of him, but the people deserve honest and transparent leadership," state Sen Adriano Espaillat said of Castro, who served as his chief of staff when Espaillat was in the Assembly.
Castro lied to L/E WRT illegals using his address to fraudulently register to vote. To save himself skin, Castro got wired and worked with the feds for more than a year, feeding them information that ultimately led to the arrest of his Albany colleague, Assemblyman Eric Stevenson, and four others on bribery charges Thursday.
It appears Castro is now spilling the beans on his former boss and fellow Dominican Republic native---NY state Sen Adriano Espillat.
I read they’re civil charges. Isn’t that correct? I am 1000% opposed to that but if that’s civil there no way they take the steps you mention,wise steps i might add, until the act of voter fraud is treated with the seriousness it should be.
Didn’t they already say what his sentence would be? Isn’t that why he flipped?
THE ACT of registering illegally might be a civil charge-—but Castro clearly has a lot more problems dogging his corrupt a**-—that certainly entail criminal charges.
REFERENCE---CASTRO'S VOTINO SCAM SHOULD SPARK NEW INQUIRIES---AND PROSECUTION----L/E should rigorously investigate the votino criminal uderworld---corrupt parasites undermining the US political system----proof-positve here that govt documents were falsified to hide the corrupt use of tax dollars. L/E might find the votino underworld doled out tax funds to finance votino scams, and other illegal conduct.
NY Hola. Hispanic Federation honchos--Roberto Ramirez (left) and Luis Miranda--look like they have a BIG secret. Must be the $22 million in STATE funds lining their pockets.....and the pockets of politicans doing their bidding. The Hispanic Federation has an interesting history---and ties to latino nonprofits---which the NY Post found are corrupt political machines.
Twi$ted web of political nonprofits in Bronx, NY /
By CANDICE M. GIOVE w/ Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein
--SNIP--Miranda launched the Hispanic Federation in 1990, the year Ramirez won an Assembly seat in Fordham. The group often pays out small amounts, from $400 to $800, to individuals without detailing why on official documents as required by law. A source in the group said these are sometimes payments for favor. "I have to pay a lady who is bringing latino seniors to a political event, the source said. They promised to send the lady to the Dominican Republic with her family in exchange for rounding up votes. An Hispanic Federation spokesman said the payments were used for families of victims of American Airlines Flight 587, which crashed in Queens in 2001, or "other people in need."
Thanks for the link. You nailed it WRT pol thievery.
The conniver to end all connivers was Democrat Pedro Espada. Ex-tate senator Espada of the corrupt Bronx was finally convicted of looting $545,000 from his non-profit (probaly much, much more).
He formed a federally funded health clinic for the (gag) “needy”——and looted the place for lavish vacations, parties, sushi feasts, etc...then used $1 million to cover his legal fees.
Votino fraud in the corrupt Bronx must be obscene. God knows how many illegals these corrupt indivuduals register at one address.....to get and keep power.
Now we know why Democrats go ballistic when voter ID comes up....would reduce their vote count considerably.
Votino vote scam artist-—Bronx Democrat Nelson Castro, a Dominican Republic native-—led a life of crime before landing in the Albany legislature.
IS HE A US CITIZEN? Nelson Castro, the Bronx state assemblyman at the center of NY’s latest political corruption scandal got into office even though he had a record of criminal arrests in two states and had lied in court about voter registration fraud at his Bronx apartment.
BACKSTORY Bronx Democratic Party leaders anointed Castro-—a former staff member for State Sen. Adriano Espaillat, a Dominiocan Republic native; party bosses were eager to elect a young Dominican politician in the South Bronx, where the Dominican population was growing rapidly.
He was a candidate who had led a life of crime:
<><> a 1989 felony arrest in Michigan for larceny. Michigan court records show that 19-year old Castro pled guilty to a misdemeanor conspiracy and was sentenced to 180 days probation.
<><> In 2003, Castro was arrested again in New York, this time for grand larceny. He was accused of pocketing $4,900 in unemployment checks while holding a job. He pled guilty to petty larceny, repaid the money and was slapped with three years probation.
<><> Then in March 2008, Castro was arrested a third time for driving in East Harlem with a revoked license and as a scofflaw who owed more than $3,000 in parking tickets.
Even more disturbing revelations followed.
<><> During the hearing before Special Referee Mary Lynn Dlabola, evidence emerged that 10 people registered to vote from Castro’s one-bedroom apt including Castro’s fiance, his cousin, his aunt and uncle, two relatives of his fiancée, and three people who were key figures in Nelson’s Castro campaign. Most had registered to vote only months before.
But Castro lied-—and testified that he had no idea all those people were registered there. Asked why so many people were claiming to live in the same tiny apartment, Castro’s lawyer claimed at one point that it was a “common practice in the Dominican community for families to take in relatives.”
ARE THE REGISTREES US CITIZENS? Unbelievably, Castro also told the court he “did not know” a man who was actually his coordinator of volunteers. That campaign coordinator was a votino scam artist, and had 15 other people registered to vote at his home address, as well.
The investigation led to a sealed indictment against Castro for perjury. To save himself-—he got wired-up and allowed to run again-—and be elected. (NY Daily News factoids.)
Nelson Castro / by Victor Chu for New York Daily News
This convicted Dominican criminal in our midst does not seem to have any visible means of support. L/E needs to determine how many identities this hardened criminal has---and how many are riding the gravy train. And is he getting a cut of the gravy train looting from all those Dominican "voters" registered at his address.
UNDERWORLD KINGPIN LOOTING TAXPAYERS? In a cruel joke on taxpayers, this shyster Castro chaired NY state Assembly's "Task Force on New Americans." Every govt budget, agency, committee, and bank account under Castro's control should be examined with a fine-tooth comb for govt fraud, racketeering, conspiracy, collusion, nepotism, secret LLC accounts, and money laundering, wire fraud, tax evasion, etc, etc, etc.
The super-secretive criminal latino underworld is now infesting the US political system. The collusive tight-knit coterie of conspiratorial political operatives have one goal----to loot the public treasury, and act as a pressure group to advance Third World ambitions. All attempts to lift the veil of criminality is met with cries of foul. But that should not be a deterrent
TAKE A GUESS---ARE ILLEGAL BRONX DOMINICANS ENGAGED IN GOVT FRAUD? Taxpayers must demand that L/E subpoena copies of Castro's legislative district (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) bank account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, employment contracts, salary agreements, and, (8) all legislative district financial books/records.
Scrutinize Castro's legislative district bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) request for withdrawals.
REFERENCE Under the Bank Secrecy Act passed by Congress, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering, govt fraud and other financial crimes. The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the tax-paying public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, govt fraud, tax evasion, money laudering and other unlawful activities, explained the special agent in charge for Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations.
CASTRO'S CORRUPT VOTINO SCAM SHOULD SPARK NEW INQUIRIES---AND PROSECUTION----L/E should rigorously investigate the latino criminal uderworld---corrupt parasites undermining the US political system----proof-positive that govt documents were falsified to hide the corrupt use of tax dollars. L/E will likely find that Castro and the latino underworld doled out tax dollars to finance votino scams, and other illegal conduct.
