Pol will surrender after being caught in Huntley wiretap – m.NYPOST.com

Embattled state Sen. John Sampson of Brooklyn is set to turn himself in to authorities today after being ensnared in a bribery scandal involving former colleague-turned-rat Shirley Huntley, sources said.

Sampson told his aides over the weekend that he was preparing to surrender to the feds, reaching out to staffers to give them the news, the sources said.

The move comes after authorities last week revealed that wiretaps show an unnamed state senator —whom sources identified to The Post as Sampson —allegedly helped broker an illicit deal between Huntley and a cargo company at JFK Airport in March 2012.
