24-Hour Contribution Report for State Sen. John Sampson | NYS Board of Elections


Brooklyn State Senator John Sampson

Brooklyn State Senator John Sampson

Five people contributed $16,000 at the 11th hour to aid embattled Brooklyn State Senator John Sampson in his now-successful Democratic Primary win. Although innocent until proved guilty, I’m left wondering who contributes to the re-election effort of a lawmaker indicted by the federal government for embezzlement, lying to federal investigators and violating legal ethics. And whose former top political aide, Melvin Lowe, was recently convicted on federal embezzlement and kickback charges involving Democratic Senate Campaign Committee funds (during Sampson’s stint as Senate Majority Leader).

Dirty MoneyAccording to his disclosure reports (as of August 4), after starting with an $11,000 deficit, Sampson raised over $83,500 and spent $65,800. In late August, Sampson loaned his campaign $15,000. Sampson also received $10, 500 donation from George Fortunato, an alleged former mobster, who Sampson calls a family friend.

The senator’s federal trial is set to begin next year, and if found guilty, Sampson would be forced to resign.
