    William Boyland Jr. Indicted Yet Again

    If convicted on the new mail fraud conspiracy count, Mr. Boyland, a Democrat, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and restitution.


    These latest charges are the latest in a long string of corruption charges against New York officials. Recently, State Sen. Malcolm Smith, Councilman Dan Halloran and Assemblyman Eric Stevenson were charged in various bribery schemes, for example. And in the past couple years, a wide range of legislators have been convicted of corruption, including Councilman Larry Seabrook, State Sen. Shirley Huntley and State Sen. Carl Kruger.


    Earlier today, it was further revealed that Ms. Huntley was cooperating with authorities before she pleaded guilty, an act that may have implicated yet more officials in additional schemes, according to prosecutors.


    Adding to the pile of wrongdoing, two associates of mayoral candidate John Liu–including his one-time campaign treasurer–were found guilty yesterday of helping to orchestrate a straw donor scheme on his behalf. Mr. Liu, the city’s comptroller, has vowed to soldier on and is holding a fund-raiser tonight in Brooklyn.

    They give Boyland's party affiliation but no one else.
    Sounds like a culture of corruption.

    Any NYers out there who've been hearing about all this?

    As their party affiliation isn't given, anyone like to wager they're Democrats?

    Halloran is a Republican. The rest are Democrats. This information takes all of ten seconds to find. Of course, I should point out that you can't consider this article to be a comprehensive list of all political corruption in New York, and that if you listed corruption stories for Alabama you're going to find more Republicans than Democrats because it's a red state.
