Now that the corruption trail of State Senator Dean G. Skelos, Republican of Long Island, and his son, Adam Skelos is underway in Federal District Court in Manhattan, the New York Times offers a scorecard listing some of the central players in the case.
The Skelos and son case centers on charges that they illegally used the senator’s power and influence as the former majority leader to help Adam Skelos gain over $300,000 in “bribes, gratuities and extortion payments” from the senator’s campaign donors and people with business before the state.
The senator was one of the state’s three most powerful politicians until his arrest. Skelos and his son have pleaded not guilty to the eight-count indictment.
