Scarborough to plead guilty

From the Daily News:

Indicted Assemblyman William Scarborough is scheduled to plead guilty May 7 to two felony federal corruption charges, the Daily News has learned.

Scarborough was charged last year in an 11-count indictment by the Albany U.S. attorney's office with improperly claiming taxpayer-funded travel expenses.

As part of the tentative plea deal, Scarborough will cop to one count of improperly receiving money from a program that receives federal funds, a source with knowledge of the situation said.

He'll also plead to a count of wire fraud connected to transmitting of the ill-gotten gains into his bank accounts, the source said.

By pleading guilty to the two felonies, Scarborough will automatically be forced to give up his seat.

It's unclear whether the latest disgraced Albany lawmaker will face prison time.

He faces a maximum sentence of 10 years for improperly receiving money from a program that receives federal funds and up to 20 years for the wire fraud charge.

He could also be fined a maximum of $250,000 on each count.

The Jamaica Fuck Ups: First Shirley Huntley, then Malcolm Smith, now so fucking long William Scarborough. Next in-line will be crook Councilman Ruben Wills and Congressman Gregory Meeks.

Two fucking decades of tax payer’s money and not a damn thing to show for it, except a fucking bad toupee.

It's hard to believe that he's the only Albany pol who is "improperly claiming taxpayer-funded travel expenses."

Typical Democrat. I steal because you made it too easy.

Personal responsibility takes a back seat in the party of Obama/Hillary.

When does he get his show on MSNBC?

From the NY Daily News article:

Scarborough admitted for the first time Tuesday that he bilked taxpayers out of at least $40,000 in travel reimbursements — saying he had financial troubles and was “angry” because legislators haven’t had a pay hike in 16 years.

Angry over no pay hike? Take your talents to South Beach you worthless parasite.

Typical of politicians, both sides. How dare the public keep any of their money! It all has to be spent on these sacks of garbage until we are so far in debt we never see the light.
