Where's the stolen loot?

From the Daily News:

The day disgraced Assemblyman Brian McLaughlin pleaded guilty to an astonishing array of corruption charges, he promised to pay back everybody he stole from - including a Queens Little League team.

That was two years ago.

Yet none of his victims - who are owed more than $845,000 - have been repaid.

That means $90,085 that should be sitting in the Electchester Athletic Association's Little League coffers isn't yet there.

"Any money that would go to the kids would be appreciated," Peggy Hackett, a team coach, said last week.

The team's lawyer said he has yet to receive a response to several letters sent to Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose office is responsible for doling out the cash.

"There's not been even a clue as to what's happening with the claim," lawyer Norman Rothfeld said.

Rothfeld said he's also trying to find out what happened to the $276,383 McLaughlin was ordered to repay the electrical workers union. McLaughlin also still owes $268,821 to the NY Central Labor Council, $32,274 to the state Assembly, $19,475 to a Queens political club and $153,939 to Welsbach Electric of College Point.

In that photo Brian looks like GRAZY GUGGENHEIM from the Jackie Gleason show.

If it wasn't for McLaughlin's conviction, he would have still been in office today, and Rory Lancman would have remained an obscure community figure.

And they won't see a dime of it unfortunately...

I heard he paid something to Welsbach but I don't know if it covered all he owed.
