Sampson found guilty

From Crains:

A New York state senator has been convicted on federal charges he sought to sabotage an investigation targeting him for embezzlement.

A Brooklyn jury reached the verdict Friday in the corruption case against Sen. John Sampson.

He was found guilty of one count of obstruction of justice and two counts of making false statements.

He was acquitted on six other counts, including witness tampering.

Are there any honest politicians?
Of course that was just a rhetorical question!

Too bad it wasn't Grace Meng that got convicted.
Then we'd have even representation in jail from three levels of government:
Municipal---Halloran; State---Mc Laughlin; Federal---Meng.

Gracie's daddy, Jimmy Meng, was convicted. That's halfway.
Does the apple fall far from the tree? We'll see.
