NYS Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman filed charges against Shirley L. Huntley (D) – a state senator from Queens – accusing her of conspiring to help a niece and an aide steal money from the nonprofit agency she founded shortly after she was first elected in 2006.
Ms. Huntley, 74, handcuffed behind her back, was led out of a building at the Nassau County court complex in Mineola on Monday, joining a parade of Albany lawmakers who have been accused of abusing their office for personal gain.
The senator’s office issued a statement:
“Senator Huntley has been an advocate for parents and children in this community for over 40 years,” it said, “and, rest assured, she will continue representing the 10th Senatorial District.”
Espada, Kruger, Bruno, Lopez, Huntley… not much decency left in politics.
