Indictments Loom For Albany Slush Fund?

Voters in Queens -- all five of you, you know who you are -- should get ready for a special election to fill what I predict will be at least one  soon-to-open vacant State Senate seat.

As with the ongoing City Council slush fund investigations, both federal and state criminal probes of similar slush fund abuses are underway, as alluded to in this New York Post report.

The issuance of subpoenas by itself does not indicate criminality.  However, the report quotes one source as referring to multiple state senators being under investigation. 

As with many complex investigations, it is always possible that, behind the scenes and with no fanfare, some elected officials or members of their staffs have already been confronted with alleged evidence of their guilt and admitted (to authorities, but not in open court) their criminal complicity.

If this theory is correct, there could be many political players wearing wires and trying to catch others in some sort of criminal behavior or get them to admit to prior complicity.  Anything to reduce a sentence will do.

Therefore, this might not be a good idea to get together with your old buddies in Queens -- or anyplace else for that matter -- and reminisce about the good ol' times when you diverted those funds to your favorite (contributor's) non-profit.
