Guilty plea by North Hempstead inspector

Plea in Long Island Corruption Probe

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) -- A Long Island prosecutor has announced a guilty plea by the man at the center of a 2007 probe into corruption at the Town of North Hempstead's building department.

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice says David Wasserman -- formerly North Hempstead's top Building Department official -- has pleaded guilty to five felonies and two misdemeanors. Nassau County Court Judge William Donnino says he will sentence Wasserman on July 1 to a year in jail.

Tuesday's plea is the third in connection with the 16-month probe. Rice says other cases remain active.

The DA says Wasserman, a resident of Roslyn, doctored plans and permit applications to conceal conflicting outside employment while working for the town. He pleaded guilty to grand larceny, offering a false instrument for filing, falsifying business records and receiving unlawful gratuities.

Funny how it seems that all around us, from Jersey to Long Island, corruption is being exposed.

Everytime a NYC politican is involved, Shenker and 'tha bhoys' seem to give a chuckle, nod and wink with a quiet 'boys will be boys now lets move on'.

We are not moving on any longer just because a hack like Shenker says to.

No longer.

What they dont say is the Town Superviser Yan Kaiman appointed flock appointed all these crooks.
They knew all those inspector's and zoning board people owned a construction company's on the side.

When the inspector got pinched the Town Superviser "remodeled" Town Hall in Manhasset chucking computers, old desks, filing cabinets, maps "disappeared"

Problem in Nort Hempstead is North Shore LIJ hospital braught in so many mid eastern Jews they now control the voting base.
The people in Manhasset and Muncy park get treated like sh*t.
The TNH ZOG now want to dump the zoning laws to build 3 story condo's like Great Neck

In 2022 we still have either a corrupt or incompetent North Hempstead Building Department. It literally takes over a year to get a new home permit. There are thousands of Levittown homes from 1950 that need to be replaced and thousands or people (like me and my wife) ready to spend $2M to rebuild (which doubles taxes) but the Building Dept puts up roadblocks that push to into moving outside of NY rather than build our Forever home. We are giving up and tossing the lot to some random spec builder who will create a cookie-cutter McMansion that looks like the rest of the cheap crap being build in Manhasset and flip it to some poor sucker who thinks our school systems are still good (which they are not). Good bye Long Island, I will not miss being ripped off.
