Two-Ton Tony in more trouble

FEDS SLAP QUEENS LAWMAKER WITH MORE CHARGES
By BRUCE GOLDING, NY Post

A day after State Sen. Hiram Monserrate was indicted on assault charges in Queens, another Democratic lawmaker is in trouble.

The US Attorney's Office in Manhattan slapped Assemblyman Tony Seminerio, a 73-year-old lawmaker from Queens, with a superseding indictment that adds additional allegations of what the feds called "extortionate acts."

Seminerio was originally indicted in December on influence-peddling charges. He had pleaded not guilty to those charges.

The US attorney has charged that Seminerio pocketed $1 million by running a "consulting firm" through which he shook down people seeking to do business with the state.

I guess we have to wait for either a conviction or for his term to be over until we can actually have a representative in the assembly. Sucks not having a voice in such a crucial time in the state's history.
(P.S. Whoever is consistantly using capitals in all their posts seems to be a little crazy)

Brian McLaughlin's most recent victim in the "I'll rat out anybody to save my own ass" is Tony Seminario, who appears to be almost as crooked as he is obese. Shelly Silver needs to get Tony to retire, or the reputation of the NY Assembly under Silver will continue to tarnish.

This city is soaked in corruption, and has been from as far back as the Mannes years. So much goes back to that time. An epic, yet tawdry, tale of greed. The good people of Queens deserve better. There will be a day of reckoning. The house of cards, propped up by both parties, will fall, and I think our pols feel it coming.

Well on a positive note, all that stolen money seems to have kept a number of restaurants in business.
