BREAKING: New York Lt. Governor Benjamin Arrested – bribery and fraud


On Tuesday morning, New York Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin surrendered to authorities “to face fraud-related charges in connection with a previous political campaign,” according to a report from The Daily Beast.

Benjamin was arrested on multiple charges, including bribery, over an alleged plot to get campaign contributions in exchange for a state grant.

Benjamin is expected to appear in Manhattan federal court Tuesday afternoon.

Gov. Kathy Hochul appointed Benjamin as her lieutenant governor last year.

According to NBC New York, “The investigation into Benjamin came after the FBI arrested his fundraiser, Gerald Migdol, in November.”
