Another corrupt Rethug indicted…

Former NY state Senate Majority leader Joseph Bruno is our latest corrupt politician. From FindLaw:

Republican Joseph Bruno, the former New York Senate Majority Leader, was indicted by a federal grand jury on criminal charges accusing him of public corruption by accepting nearly $3.2 million over more than a decade from labor unions.

The charges allege that from 2003 to 2006, Bruno engaged in a scheme to defraud New Yorkers by accepting approximately $3.198 million from labor unions seeking state business in exchange for using his official government position to take action on behalf of the unions.

Real piece o’ work that Bruno. Hope he enjoys a long jail sentence with the common criminals. Bet he isn’t laughing now…
