Diaz Strikes Again -- Says He Will Accept Kruger Bucks
State Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr. remains the best gift to political writers since Pedro Espada. After his sole remaining Amigo, Carl Kruger, was indicted on Friday, Diaz came out with a bizarre statement saying that if any of his colleagues were unsure what to do with money donated to them by Kruger they should just donate it his campaign. Jimmy Veilkind at Captiol Confidential has posted relevant portions of the press release. Some of his colleagues have offered to give the money to charity, but I guess Diaz thinks this is a more worthy cause.
