Statement Of U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman On The Conviction Of Joseph Percoco, Former Executive Aide And Campaign Manager To N.Y. Governor, And A Co-Defendant

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of New York

“Joseph Percoco was found guilty of taking over $300,000 in cash bribes by selling something priceless that was not his to sell – the sacred obligation to honestly and faithfully serve the citizens of New York.  As every schoolchild knows, but he corruptly chose to disregard, government officials who sell their influence to select insiders violate the basic tenets of a democracy.  We will continue relentlessly to bring to justice those public officials who violate their oaths by engaging in this especially offensive misconduct.”
