From the NY Times:
ALBANY — Joseph L. Bruno, the former Senate majority leader, was found guilty Monday afternoon of taking payments from a business executive and failing to disclose a secret financial partnership with the businessman.
After seven days of deliberating, the jury in Mr. Bruno’s federal corruption trial handed down a guilty verdict on two felony counts. They found Mr. Bruno not guilty on five counts and could not reach a verdict on another count.
Mr. Bruno faces up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine on each felony count. He is sure to appeal, and the Supreme Court is preparing to review the controversial “theft of honest services” statute underlying his case.
Shit, when did they make honest graft a crime?
