In a move bound to rock the state Capitol, longtime Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver reportedly will be arrested Thursday on corruption charges.
The arrest of Silver, who has been one of most powerful men in Albany for more than two decades, was reported overnight by The New York Times.
While it’s unclear exactly what charges Silver could be facing, The Times reported they are linked to payments the powerful Manhattan Democrat received from New York City law Goldberg & Iryami that he did not disclose publicly as required by law.
A spokesman for U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara had no comment.
UPDATE: This guy allegedly hid A LOT of money.
