Crooked Kruger Resigns Ahead Of Federal Court Appearance

3

Brooklyn state senator Carl Kruger has resigned in the wake of a federal corruption case.

He wrote a letter of resignation to the Secretary of the Senate today.

It’s effective immediately.

Kruger was reportedly ready to enter a plea today to four of the five charges against him, including fraud and bribery conspiracy.

The fraud charge carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Kruger, a Democrat, is accused of accepting up to $1 million in bribes in order to help green-light several projects for lobbyists and business people and allocating funds for others.

A felony conviction would have forced him to resign his senate seat.
