Politicians Gone Bad?

Another one has just been busted folks. New York State Senator John Sampson, who represents Brooklyn has now been arrested by the FBI and charged with embezzling $440,000 between 1998 and 2008, funneling some of the cash into his unsuccessful 2005 campaign to become Brooklyn district attorney and chillingly using a mole in the federal prosecutor's office to try and identify witnesses against him so he could arrange to take them out.

How many more corrupt politicians are taxpayers going to be paying for? The better question is why are they allowed to stay on the public payroll?

Since April fools day, US prosecutors have charged NY State Sen. Malcolm Smith (D-Queens) Assemblyman Eric Stevenson (D-Bronx) and NYC City Councilman Daniel Halloran (R-Queens) with bribery-related charges. Who's next?
