NBC New York
Top De Blasio Aide Arrested on Gun Charges in Queens

A high-level deputy director in Mayor de Blasio’s Office of Criminal Justice was arrested on gun charges this weekend, police say.

Reagan Stevens, the deputy director of Youth and Strategic Initiatives, was charged along with two men after officers found the trio in a vehicle with a loaded handgun late Saturday night, according to police.

Officers were responding to ShotSpotter, the NYPD's bullet-detection system, near the corner of 177th Street and 106th Avenue in Jamaica when police say they found the “suspicious” vehicle double-parked nearby.

The officers found the loaded 9mm handgun in a glove compartment, according to police, who said the weapon holds an eight-round clip but that only three rounds were remaining. Police said it wasn’t immediately clear if the gun had been recently fired.

We've got the disgrace that is Eric Schneiderman spread over 5 or 6 threads.

He deserves the obloquy, but we should probably just have all of this in one thread.

Two Indicted for Making Corporate Contributions to U.S. Senate Campaign

The former president of a Kentucky-based corporation and a political consultant were both indicted today for using corporate funds to make contributions to the campaign of a candidate for U.S. Senate and for causing the concealment of these contributions from the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

***

A federal grand jury in Lexington returned an indictment charging Gerald G. Lundergan, 71, of Lexington, Kentucky, with one count of conspiracy, one count of making corporate campaign contributions, four counts of causing the submission of false statements to the FEC, and four counts of causing the falsification of documents with the intent to obstruct and impede a matter within the FEC’s jurisdiction. The indictment also charges Dale C. Emmons, 66, of Richmond, Kentucky, with one count of conspiracy, one count of making corporate campaign contributions, two counts of causing the submission of false statements, and two counts of causing the falsification of documents with the intent to obstruct and impede.

The indictment alleges that Lundergan used the funds of S.R. Holding Company Inc. (“S.R. Holding”), a company he owned, to pay for services provided by consultants and vendors to a campaign for U.S. Senate in the 2014 election cycle. The candidate for this seat was Lundergan’s family member. The indictment alleges that Lundergan and another S.R. Holding employee issued a number of payments from S.R. Holding funds for services that included audio-video production, lighting, recorded telephone calls, and campaign consulting between July 2013 and December 2015. The payments referenced in the indictment allegedly totaled $194,270.39 over time.

According to the indictment, these payments included $119,145.45 paid from S.R. Holding to Emmons and his company during this period for services to the campaign. Emmons also used the funds of his corporation, Emmons & Company Inc., to pay other vendors and a campaign worker for services rendered to the campaign. Over time, according to the indictment, Emmons paid $38,603.80 to these vendors for recorded telephone calls, technological support services, and other campaign-related expenses.

The indictment alleges that Lundergan and Emmons concealed these activities from other officials associated with the campaign. Their concealments allegedly caused the campaign unwittingly to file false reports with the FEC, in that the reports failed to disclose the source and amount of the corporate contributions.

Texas House member wins re-election from a jail cell

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A re-election celebration is underway in Pod 2 of the Montgomery County Jail after inmate number 232573 claimed victory in Texas House District 27. That inmate is known as Rep. Ron Reynolds, D-Missouri City, to the people on the outside.

Reynolds was unopposed in the race for District 27 and the latest vote totals show Reynolds garnered 47,305 votes in Tuesday's election.

Reynolds was booked into the county jail on Sept. 7. He's serving a year-long sentence after a 2015 conviction on five misdemeanor counts of using a middleman to chase ambulances in order to solicit clients for Reynolds’ law firm.

After the 2015 conviction, a county judge handed down the jail sentence to the sitting lawmaker, but Reynolds spent the last three years appealing the conviction. Reynolds’ law license was suspended on May 2, 2016.

Since the convictions were misdemeanors, Reynolds did not have to resign from office. Unless Reynolds' sentence is reduced, he will likely be sitting in a jail cell when the legislature reconvenes in January 2019. Reynolds could miss the entire first year of the 86th legislative session if he's not freed before Sept. 7, 2019.
