GOP operative asks judge to delay trial until after elections | New York Post

The NY Post reports that a former Queens GOP operative wants his federal corruption trial put off from its scheduled June 2 start to December.

Former Queens Republican Vice Chairman Vincent Tabone — who is accused of pocketing $25,000 as part of a failed scheme to get state Sen. Malcolm Smith (D-Queens) on the 2012 GOP line for mayor — has filed papers asking White Plains federal Judge Kenneth Karas to delay a June 2 trial set for Tabone, Smith and other co-defendants until at least December.
