New York state Senator Carl Kruger is one of the four notorious Democrats who killed David Patterson's push to legalize gay marriage in the state last year. So it should come as no surprise that he is utterly corrupt and lives with his gay lover and his gay lover's mother. According to the charges against him, Kruger accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for support in the legislature, and his lover Michael Turano set up fake companies to accept the money. It's still unclear why a gay man like Kruger whose party even
Agreed. It seems possible, too, that the anti-gay part could have set up a blackmail device or poison pill in their arrangement.
But the safe was in the closet too. So even an inanimate object couldn&#039;t be open about its sexuality.
And I bet that the &quot;vigorous defense&quot; will vigorously resist being mounted.
Wait, it gets better. (Didn&#039;t think that was possible, did you?)
Among the others charged is real-estate developer Aaron Malinsky, who the feds say funneled $472,500 to Kruger via Turano&#039;s shell companies, for his support of a Brooklyn real-estate project. A project approved by - are you sitting down? - the district manager for Brooklyn Community Board 18, Dorothy Turano, a.k.a. momma Turano to this happy family. (The Board had recently rejected a similar dvelopment project on the same site by a different, but presumably honest, developer.) You can&#039;t make this stuff up. Not even Carl Hiaasen, if you coked him to the gills, could make this up.
&quot;...crisp, large denominational bills...?&rdquo;
I prefer large non-denominational bills in case I need to get change from a temple, mosque or synagogue...
PS: Does &quot;large denominational&quot; make one a top and not a bottom?
Plunkett of Tammany Hall is shocked and spinning in his grave.
The poor priest, possibly a victim of a man in a position of trust. It&#039;s an outrage.
ahhh NY. giving IL a serious run for &#039;most corrupt&#039; crown.
A corrupt from Legislator from New York, a lying egomanical Governor from Texas, and koch-sucking Governor from Wisconsin.
Folks I am out of here. Between this and the tsunami, it&#039;s off to Ohio for me!
