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.)

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.
