CROOKED POL GOT HACK SACK
By Bruce Golding, NY Post
How the mighty have fallen.
Former labor leader and state Assemblyman Brian McLaughlin -- awaiting sentencing May 14 in a massive corruption scam -- was reduced to working weekends as a cab and limo driver, until the TLC yanked his license.
In court papers filed yesterday, McLaughlin's lawyers said he's held a series of "long-hour and low-wage jobs" since his indictment for stealing more than $2 million to fund a lavish lifestyle for himself, his relatives and at least three mistresses.
He was laid off from his last job -- as a filter-plant laborer in The Bronx -- in January due to a "reduction in force," according to the Manhattan federal court filing.
