State Assemblyman Arrested On Federal Charges
Another New York State lawmaker is in trouble with the law.
Assemblyman Eric Stevenson is facing charges including bribery.
He’s accused of offering up legislation in exchange for money.
Stevenson is a Democrat representing the 79th district and he just took office in January 2011.
Four other people are also included in the indictment. It comes just days after politicians were implicated in a plot to rig the New York City mayoral race.
