ALBANY, NY – December 20, 2011 — He financed a four-door Bentley Arnage.  He lives in a Mil Basin home that was originally built for a boss of the Luchese crime family.  However, the permanent residence is about to change for Senator Carl Kruger (D-Brooklyn) (pictured LEFT). 

Kruger is expected to plead guilty to four of the five federal corruption charges claiming he accepted more than $1million in bribes, sources say.

Mr. Kruger’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said Mr. Kruger and his co-conspirator, Mr. Turano, were scheduled to appear before the presiding judge in the case, Jed S. Rakoff of Federal District Court in Manhattan, on Tuesday afternoon; he would not discuss the details of what was expected to transpire. If he pleads guilty to a felony, Mr. Kruger will automatically lose his job.

Kruger, 62, was busted earlier this year.

Court papers say he sponsored legislation, attempted to allocate millions in pork-barrel funds and even wrote a letter to a federal judge in Buffalo in exchange for a “stream of bribes” from real-estate, hospital and beverage-industry interests.

  1. Swindling frauds! This is disgusting.
    Carlos Gonzalez wrote this article? Ha! The irony! His father, disgraced senator Efrain Gonzalez, is in prison as we speak for stealing taxpayer money as a state Senator. What a joke!

  2. I hear that Kruger has agreed to testify against his friend Nick Spano as a condition of his plea deal with the U.S. Attorney. This could get interesting.
