Rat pol cuffed: Perjury rap for Assembly informant Castro
Dominican Republican native Nelson Castro was arraigned on a perjury charge–Castro lied under oath, denying knowing his own campaign workers who boosted Castro’s election chances using Votino Fraud—registering numerous illegal Dominicans to vote at home addresses. Democrat Castro got wired to save himself, and over four years recorded crooked legislators taking bribes–one was taped actually “selling” legislation. Castro is cooperating in investigations of corrupt pols — a revelation that has rocked Albany. He was released without bail.
Castro’s woes began in 2008 when the Bd of Elections began examining Castro’s eligibility to run for office after allegations surfaced that numerous illegal Dominican voters were registered at his home address and at the home of campaign worker, Dominican Steve Santana. During a 2008 hearing, Castro lied under oath, denying he knew the votino fraudster—and Desdemona Cruz who was on the candidate-selection committee that anointed Castro–intent on putting Dominican natives on the ballot to increase Latino power in Albany. Castro had forged signatures on petitions to earlier seek office as a district leader.
