From the Village Voice:
The latest state campaign filings show that Brooklyn state senator Carl Kruger — who hasn’t had a tough race in 15 years — took in another half-million bucks from his many supporters. The haul keeps Kruger, who represents a swath of south Brooklyn, at the top of the state senate’s political money mountain, with a new total of $2.55 million in his war chest. That’s two and a half times the $989,000 that senate leader John Sampson has in his own campaign bank. Only Assembly boss Sheldon Silver has more, with $2.7 million.
Whatever the probe’s status, the filings show that Kruger shelled out $7500 to the law firm of Meissner, Kleineck & Finkel, where partner Richard Finkel is representing Kruger chief of staff Jason Koppel who was also cited as part of the federal probe. Finkel told the Voicelast month that his client is also out of the woods with the feds.
And he doesn’t even have an opponent. How disgusting.
