New York State Senator Carl Kruger and his doctor boyfriend Michael Turano were sentenced to 7 and 2 years, respectively, for their roles in a bribery scheme which shook down the politician's constituents and laundered the funds through dummy corporations to finance their lavish lifestyle as reported by the New York Post:
In the "pay-to-play" scheme, the then-senator directed illicit payments from representatives of the real-estate, hospital, supermarket and beverage industries to shell companies set up by Turano. In return, Kruger, 63, sponsored legislation beneficial to to the bribe-payers, tried to steer millions of dollars in pork-barrel funds to, and even once wrote a favorable letter to a Buffalo federal judge.
The pair lived together in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn in a waterfront McMansion originally constructed for Lucchese boss Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso.
No word if the paramours will be allowed to bunk together in prison.
