NEW YORK (AP) A state lawmaker pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges in a deal that requires her to resign from office, admitting that she obtained legal residency and ultimately citizenship through a sham marriage and then lied to bankruptcy authorities years later to erase $30,000 of debt.
Assemblywoman Gabriela Rosa, 47, told U.S. District Judge Denise Cote that she "falsely got married" to a U.S. citizen and referred to it as a real marriage when she became a citizen in 2005.
Although the two false statements charges carry a combined potential penalty of 10 years in prison, Rosa agreed not to contest any sentence between a year and 18 months. She will be sentenced on Oct. 3.

Whew! The one thing she was honest about.
Monkeys do fly.
We’ll see about that....
Not good, but at least it doesn’t sound like she rooked the taxpayers, and she did resign.
Charlie Rangel (the opponent of Espaillat), on the other hand, ran in Harlem with ads depicting him as the “Original Gangsta,” has made a fortune and built an empire on corruption and still continues to rake it in...and has no intention of resigning or even saying he’s sorry.
I hope to live long enough to see him wearing an orange jumpsuit.
and then get deported ?
If you have any kind of an IQ it seems that it's tough to be caught in a sham marriage.If you're called in by the INS you just rehearse answers like what side of the bed he/she sleeps on.I've read that that's the kind of thing they ask you.
That's my DREAM.
This lowlife demurely hung her head in "shame" before the cameras---reading off the criminal charges that will put her in jail. But to the astute observer, she is hiding plenty. The FBI needs to uncover:
<><><>the number of identities she is using;
<><><> the number of US govt checks Rosa, her family, and staff are cashing;
<><><> whether she ever been labled a ntl security threat;
<><><> the list of her memberships in violent latino groups advocating the overthrow of the US govt
<><> How many stolen Social Security numbers are the Rosa family, staff and political entourage using?
<><><> How many identities are the Rosa family and campaign entourage using?
<><><> Is Rosa, her family, supporters, and political entourage paid agents of foreign governments?
WHO IS GIVING HER MARCHING ORDERS? The FBI needs to subpoena her phone records, emails and snail mail .....
<><> Examine her campaign contributors, foreign travel, wire transfers, etc.
<><> Did Rosa employ illegals as staff w/ tax dollars?
NY POST EXCERPT---Her head hanging in shame, Gabriela Rosa, 47, who was elected in 2012, admitted to:
<><> filing bogus falsified documents to the federal government in which she lied about her first marriage to obtain citizenship.
<><> bribing a US citizen w/ $8000 to engage in the fraudulent nuptials while she maintained a romantic relationship with another man. She is currently married to latino Victor Estrella and has a 14-year-old son.
<><> committing the fraud between 1996 and December 2005, when she became a US citizen.I married the person, and it was not a real marriage, she told Judge Denise Cote.
<><> Rosa also pleaded guilty to making false statements in a 2009 personal-bankruptcy filing. She failed to include her husbands earning and omitted her ownership of a co-op apartment.
<><> Rosa, who once worked as a legislative aide to Assemblyman Herman Denny Farrell, also failed to list outside income she earned as a political consultant.
NOTE Her resignation was part of the plea and she is banned from ever again seeking office in the US. The feds said that despite the fraud, they now consider Rosa a US citizen and will not deport her back to her native Dominican Republic.
In her official biography----which was scrubbed from the Assembly Web site within minutes of her plea----Rosa lied and had boasted of becoming a US citizen. In 2005, Gabriela became a proud United States citizen, allowing her to deepen her involvement in government and civics by running for office and opening the door for her to further improve the lives of her neighbors in northern Manhattan, the bio stated.
Before running for office, as an illegal, Ms. Rosa worked as a staff member in the City Council and the Assembly. She served as chief of staff to former City Councilman Miguel Martinez....Martinez pleaded guilty in 2009 to stealing more than $100,000 through his Council office and a pair of tax-exempt nonprofit organizations.
NOTE: If she knew of, and failed to report misuse of tax dollars, she could be adjudged guilty of a crime.
Ms. Rosa campaigned on behalf of fellow Dominican-American legislator, State Senator Adriano D. Espaillat, who lost a Democratic primary challenge to Representative Charles B. Rangel. Mr. Espaillat was a key supporter of Ms. Rosas when she ran for the Assembly.
Espaillat lost a Democratic primary challenge to Representative Charles B. Rangel. Mr. Espaillat was a key supporter of Ms. Rosas when she ran for the Assembly.
The FBI was (is?) hot on the tail of NY state Democrat Sen. Adriano Espaillat (D-Manhattan), a Dominican Republic native, and his penchant for sucking up tax dollars for so-called needy latino community groups. Dominican-born Democrat Espaillat sucked up 100 member items as an assemblyman, including $500,000 public monies for his tax-exempt nonprofit, the grandiously named, Northern Manhattan Coalition for Economic Development.
(NOTE WELL: Member items is a nauseating extortion scam for greedy NY state legislative members---several have been nailed for similar scams).
DOMINICAN-BORN DEMOCRAT ESPAILLAT IS KNOWN AS SENATOR PORK----FBI agents want to know about Democrat Espillats use of public monies for needy groups that employed a covey of Dominican Republic natives including Espaillats sister-in- law, a Democratic district leader and several campaign consultants.
FBI scrutiny comes as DEMOCRAT Espaillats ex-COS sings about Albany corruption---after he got wired for the FBI. Nelson Castro, a Dominican Republic native, got wired to save himself---earlier, he lied to the FBI WRT a parade of Dominican Republic illegals, who elected him using corrupt methods including registering to vote in several districts---even using Castros address to register.
Espillat zipped his lips when asked whether Dominican Democrat Castro was singing to the FBI about Espaillat. BTW, Espaillats economic development scam closed down in 2011 when the electorate was onto the member items scam. But Espillat appointed his scammong n/ps executive director to a $50,000-a-year job as Sen Espaillats special assistant.
(Mmmmmm.....sure would like to see Dominican Republic native Nurys de Oleo's job description---up against his actual state duties for Espaillat.) NOTE Some material gleaned from NY Post reporting.
The Rangel/Espaillat race was being touted as a symbol of latino voting strength---since it had morphed from an Afro district to a latino district.
Why would ANYONE be surprised, she is dumb-o-crat state lawmaker and pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges in a deal that requires her to resign from office, admitting that she obtained legal residency and ultimately citizenship through a sham marriage and then lied to bankruptcy authorities years later to erase $30,000 of debt.
Mac daddy will appoint her to head some agency.
