BAD LIEUTENANT: New York Democratic Lt. Gov Brian Benjamin Arrested for Fraud

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.12.22

New York Democratic Lieutenant Governor Brian Benjamin has been arrested for campaign finance fraud; Benjamin surrendered to authorities Tuesday morning.

“Benjamin was questioned earlier this year by the feds amid a reported probe into whether he was involved in an alleged plot to illegally funnel contributions to his failed campaign for city comptroller,” the New York Post reports.

“Benjamin admitted to The Post that he was interviewed in connection with the conspiracy and wire fraud charges filed in November against Harlem landlord and lawyer Gerald Migdol, who’s accused of making illegal, ‘straw’ donations to Benjamin’s campaign.”

“In November, Migdol was arrested for allegedly orchestrating a scheme to funnel illegal campaign contributions to Benjamin’s unsuccessful 2021 bid.”
