NY State Senator Kruger Charged in Corruption Case

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Brooklyn State Senator Carl Kruger, who surrendered in New York to face federal charges on Thursday, is among eight people charged in a federal influence-peddling case.

The Brooklyn Democrat, once the powerful Senate Finance Committee chairman from 2008 to 2010, is named along with Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. Conspiracy and money laundering are among the charges listed in the complaint.

The complaint alleges Kruger "received a stream of bribes totaling at least $1 million" and funneling state funds to a lobbyist.
