City Councilman Larry Seabrook Eats Bagels Made of Gold Dust and Panda Tears


Bronx City Councilman Larry Seabrook has been indicted on thirteen counts of money laundering, extortion, and fraud. According to the Times, his corrupt schemes were not always entirely well thought-out:

The conduct alleged in the indictment ranges from the ambitious to the nearly silly: from extorting payments from a close associate to help win the boiler contract to altering a $7 receipt for a bagel sandwich and diet soda so that Mr. Seabrook was reimbursed $177 for the purchase.
