Joe Bruno Found Guilty of Running New York Senate

Former New York State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno was convicted on two of the eight felony corruption charges he was facing. So this is precedent to press charges against everyone in Albany.

Bruno was basically guilty of doing what everyone else up there does, only a little more so.

Here's what they actually nailed him on, though:

Bruno was convicted of count four of the indictment of taking 11 payments from companies for consulting work he never performed.

He was also convicted on of failing to disclose his participation in a partnership involving thoroughbred race horses.

Bruno was also charged with "depriving the public of 'honest services,'" which, once again, is vague enough to indict a State Senate quorum.

Bruno faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in jail and $250,000.
