This morning, eight men surrendered to theFBI as the result of a long-term investigation intopublic corruption. Two state legislators, a lobbyist,a real estate developer and two hospital executivesare among the defendants.The criminal complaint outlined by the USAttorney lays out a roadmap of bribery, moneylaundering, influence-peddling and officialmisconduct that is eye-opening even to seasonedinvestigators and prosecutors.Much of the evidence laid out in the complaintcomes from court-authorized wiretaps on thecellular phones of Carl Kruger, Richard Lipsky,Solomon Kalish, and the late Anthony Seminerio.Carl Kruger has been a New York StateSenator representing Brooklyn since 1994. For atleast the last five years, while he nominallyrepresented the people of the 27
Senate District,
Kruger took official action aimed at furthering theinterests of a much smaller circle of people.Kruger sponsored or supported legislation,lobbied other officials, or directed State funds, forthe benefit of businesses whose officers oradvocates lined Kruger¶s pockets, directly orindirectly, with more than $1 million.Kruger attempted to conceal the bribepayments by having them funneled into bankaccounts for shell companies established bydefendant Michael Turano, a person described inthe complaint as a particularly close personalfriend of Kruger.In fact, the complaint says, ³Kruger acted likea member of the Turano family,´ and ³is closestwith Michael Turano.´ Bribe payments funneledinto the accounts of Olympian StrategicDevelopment and Bassett Brokerage were moneyKruger had direct access to.
Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. hasrepresented the 55
Assembly District since 2003.He had been ± and remained after his election ± onthe payroll of MediSys Health Network.In return for official action seeking millions of dollars in State funding for MediSys hospitals,Boyland was paid a ³salary´ as a ³consultant´ toMediSys. Witnesses interviewed by the FBIestablished that Boyland¶s consultancy positionwas really a no-show job for which MediSys CEODavid Rosen paid Boyland nearly $180,000.Rosen is also charged with bribes to Krugerthrough a scheme involving the steering of Brookdale Hospital business to a hospice careprovider in which Kruger had an economic interest.Rosen sought to have Kruger take official action insupport of MediSys efforts to acquire certainhospitals.
