Ex-Bronx GOP chairman Savino copped to helping rig mayoral race for state Sen. Malcolm Smith – Daily News


The NY Daily News reports that former Bronx GOP chairman Jay Savino has agreed to plead guilty to charges that he took bribes to get Democratic Queens State Senator Malcolm onto the Republican Mayoral primary ballot.

Drip, drip, drip of political corruption continues. The US Attorney’s office is the people’s plumber.
