Disgraced Dem pol Carl Kruger pleaded guilty to taking bribes with the aid of his gay lover.......The veteran Brooklyn Democrat infuriated gays and lesbians by opposing same-sex marriage before reversing himself this year has refused to acknowledge his relationship with Turano, despite wiretaps in which they were caught engaging in baby talk and discussing how Kruger fell in love with Turano at first sight.
Kruger and Turano were busted in what the feds called a broad-based bribery racket reflecting an unholy alliance of politicians, lobbyists and businessmen.
Kruger peddled his influence for more than five years, including as chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee getting more than $1 million in bribes through a pay-to-play scheme involving representatives of the real-estate, hospital, supermarket and beverage industries paid to shell companies set up by Turano.......Kruger sponsored legislation, attempted to allocate millions in pork-barrel funds and even wrote a letter to a federal judge in Buffalo.
The dirty money helped fund their lavish lifestyle.......a Bentley sedan and a garish Mill Basin mansion where the two gays lived with Turanos brother and his mother, Brooklyn Community Board 18 District Manager Dorothy Turano.

No. It can't be. Not on a story like this.
The cutsie-wootsie Senator (left) and his hunkie-wunkie boo boo
Guess it’s why D.C. has no poor democrat hacks.But the love to tax the evil rich people. /s
Exactly. This makes me want to barf. I am sick to death of these perverts in power.
That old fart is lucky the beau didn’t decide to help him down a flight of stairs - head first. Fell in love my aching neck.
My first thought without reading further is that his opposition was designed to incite the gay lobby to send him money and gifts to get him to change his mind. Is that right?
broad-based bribery racket reflecting an unholy alliance of politicians, lobbyists and businessmen.
Unholy? Seems to me it was a hole ly alliance amongst these fags.
Another fecal-eating homo caught in a demorat corruption scheme. These deviants are just members of the alliance of misfits and parasites that make up the demorat party of today.
Campaign contrbutions---that's how a pol spells extortion.
Looks like there’s way more to the story. I thought Krugar had a live-in girlfirend, but I guess she was just someone to hide his homosexuality.
Here’s the story:
‘A Democratic Surprise
Nobody ever expected Carl Kruger to vote yes.
A Democrat from Brooklyn, known for his gruff style and shifting alliances, Senator Kruger voted against same-sex marriage two years ago, was seen as a pariah in his party and was accused in March of taking $1 million in bribes in return for political favors.
Some gay activists, assuming he was a lost cause, had taken to picketing outside of his house and screaming that he was gay an approach that seemed only to harden his opposition to their agenda. (Mr. Kruger has said he is not gay.) But unbeknown to all but a few people, Mr. Kruger desperately wanted to change his vote. The issue, it turned out, was tearing apart his household.
The gay nephew of the woman he lives with, Dorothy Turano, was so furious at Mr. Kruger for opposing same-sex marriage two years ago that he had cut off contact with both of them, devastating Ms. Turano. I dont need this, Mr. Kruger told Senator John L. Sampson of Brooklyn, the Democratic majority leader. It has gotten personal now.
Mr. Sampson, a longtime supporter of same-sex marriage, advised Mr. Kruger to focus on the nephew, not the political repercussions.”’
