Sheldon Silver, who held a seemingly intractable grip on power for decades as one of the most feared politicians in New York State, was found guilty on Monday of federal corruption charges, ending a trial that was the capstone of the government’s efforts to expose the seamy culture of influence-peddling in Albany.
The typical jew behavior, the reason there's "anti-semitism." An upright rat in a suit works the levers of power while the gentiles slumber, asleep in their JUDEO-christian false church, numbly nodding along to endless kosher sermons on the precious jew, g*d's favorite people. And don't forget the six million up the chimney! Here, look at this doctored photo or read this fraudulent diary. Ignore the pornography, the feminism, the marxism, the materialism, the spiritual cancer, the senseless foreign wars, the war at home against Whites.
The verdict was a quick and unceremonious end for Mr. Silver, who, during his more than two decades as the State Assembly speaker, displayed a Teflon-like quality in deflecting questions about his outside income as well as calls for his ouster.
Muh democracy. A sinecure merchant fills its pockets and goes unpunished until the corruption becomes too massive to ignore, even for the debased people content to be ruled over by the poisonous toadstool.
Mr. Silver, 71, a Manhattan Democrat, was convicted on all seven counts against him. The charges of honest services fraud, extortion and money laundering stemmed from schemes by which he obtained nearly $4 million in exchange for using his position to help benefit a cancer researcher and two real estate developers.
As a result of the conviction, he must automatically forfeit the Assembly seat to which he was first elected nearly 40 years ago.
A criminal jew bastard held this money laundering position for nearly half a century. Great job, "voters!"
When word came that a verdict had been reached, Mr. Silver fidgeted in his chair, clenched his jaw, shook his head, sighed and glanced toward Preet Bharara, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, who had taken a seat at the rear of the courtroom just before the verdict was read.
Oy, so humid in here. Can't believe the dumb shkotzim are finally sick of my money thuggery.
After the fourth guilty pronouncement by the jury forewoman, Mr. Silver’s shoulders sagged visibly inside his baggy navy blue suit.
The chosen, the merchant and his carpet bag of tricks, the satanic rodent attacking the foundations of our homelands, the most important people in the world (Just ask them!).
Steven F. Molo, one of Mr. Silver’s lawyers, said the defense was “obviously disappointed in the verdict, and we intend to file vigorous post-trial motions seeking to set it aside.”
It's extremely unlikely this worthless turd will be actually punished for decades of graft.
Mr. Bharara released an equally succinct statement after the verdict: “Today, Sheldon Silver got justice, and at long last, so did the people of New York.”
Yes, here's our kosher "justice." The jew will have to file motions and then won't do a single day behind bars (Oy, the camps and selections!). Another glorious victory for the "people."
He was faulted for his handling of two sexual harassment allegations; in 2013, a state ethics report criticized him for covering up accusations of sexual harassment against Assemblyman Vito J. Lopez.
Eyyyyy, I geeeet deeees rat boy to coveeer uppp da grab aaassssss, I theeeeennnkkk. "Diversity," the gift that just keeps on giving.
Testimony and other evidence showed that Mr. Silver had arranged to have the State Health Department award two grants totaling $500,000 to Dr. Taub, whose research focused on mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer related to asbestos exposure.
In return, Dr. Taub sent mesothelioma patients with potentially lucrative legal claims to Weitz & Luxenberg, which then shared a portion of its fees with Mr. Silver.
Big geld to be made off the cattle and unclean meat.
Mr. Silver’s lawyers argued that in charging him, Mr. Bharara’s office had sought to criminalize the kinds of activity in which state legislators routinely engaged.
The jew, "routinely engaging" in con games while holding public office. You can't punish every kosher crook, after all! We're all doing it!
“They look at conduct which is legal,” Mr. Molo told the jury in his opening statement, “conduct which is normal, conduct which allows government to function consistent with the way that our founding fathers of the State of New York wanted it to function, and they say this is illegal.”
Yeah. I'm sure the Founding Fathers were thinking of protecting jewish cancer scams when they were setting up the government.
“It wasn’t by the people or for the people,” he continued. “It was by Sheldon Silver for Sheldon Silver.”
That this government by, for and of the jews shall not perish from this earth.
