A New York state senator from Brooklyn was charged on Monday with stealing proceeds from sales of foreclosed properties to finance a failed run for district attorney, prosecutors said, making him the states latest politician to face federal criminal charges.

Another criminal Rat basta-- Who'd a thunk it?

In NY, corruption and stupidity know no political bounds.
I have no doubt about that, but it seems almost unheard of, that the media mention that he is a Rat basta--
He’s a Democrat AND he’s black.
That means he’s innocent, and his accusers are racists.
