Top NY Election Lawyer Convicted of Extortion, Faces Prison Term

A federal jury took less than one full day to convict former New York Supreme Court Justice Thomas Spargo of attempted extortion and soliciting a bribe from lawyers who had cases before Spargo.  Spargo was found to have tried to extort money from lawyers appearing before him in court in order to help him fund his legal costs to defend himself in an investigation into his conduct by the Commission on Judicial Conduct.  

Spargo was widely considered to be a top election law expert in New York State and advised on petition drive election law compliance for prominent campaigns including the presidential campaigns of H. Ross Perot in 1992 and Steve Forbes in 1996.
