Assemblyman Eric Stevenson was arrested this morning on charges he drafted legislation in exchange for cash.
The arrest comes only 48 hours after Democratic Sen. Malcolm Smith was arrested and indicted in a scheme to use bribes to secure the Republican line for mayor. City Councilman Dan Halloran and Republican party officials were also arrested in the corruption case.
But it doesn't end there. Stevenson's arrest came about through a deal with a so-far unamed Bronx Assemblyman who faced felony charges and ratted out Stevenson in exchange for not being prosecuted. However, said Bronx Assemblyman will have to resign from office.
Expect plenty more news on this throughout the day.
