Seabrook Trial Gets Under Way
Courtney Gross over at NY 1 reports that Bronx Councilman Larry Seabrook's trial is about to get under way a year after his indictment. She reports that "Seabrook is charged with getting kickbacks from this Bronx contractor to help secure work at the new Yankee Stadium. He also allegedly steered City Council earmarks to nonprofits that he controlled and where he installed friends and family in so-called “no-show” jobs." Seabrook is the guy who reportedly paid a $144 for a bagel.
