The New York Daily News is reporting today that:
A day after state Sen. John Sampson (D-Brooklyn) was charged with embezzlement, prosecutors Tuesday revealed that eight unnamed people are “the subjects of ongoing criminal investigations.”
The eight individuals all spoke to former state Sen. Shirley Huntley (D-Queens) while she wore a wire last summer for federal prosecutors investigating corruption.
One of the eight is Sampson, sources said. A majority of the seven others are elected officials. The rest have ties to some of those officials.
Sadly, this is not shocking news when it comes to the ingrained culture of corruption in New York politics.
