Default Re: FBI: NYS Assembly Speaker Jew Vermin Sheldon Silver Arrested On Corruption Charges


Silver’s political club failed to disclose finances: activist

The Lower East Side political club that for years served as the home base for disgraced former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has failed to publicly disclose its finances, as required by law, for nearly two decades, an activist charges.

The Truman Democratic Club is not registered with the state and has not submitted financial disclosures for at least 18 years, despite taking in tens of thousands of dollars, according to the complaint filed with the state Board of Elections by downtown activist Jeremy Sherber.

The Board of Elections requires political clubs that raise or spend money for candidates to register and to make disclosures.

State records show that since 1999 the Truman Club has taken in at least $100,000 in donations from political committees. But without the state disclosure reports, there’s no way to know how it spent its money.

The Truman Club was long a stronghold for Silver, who was booted from the Assembly after his 2015 conviction in a public corruption case. His conviction was vacated last month.

The Grand Street political club was considered one of the last vestiges of his power. Silver loyalist Judy Rapfogel, his former chief of staff, is an active member and it is headed by her sister-in-law, Freda Fried.

Fried did not return a request for comment.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
