Statement Of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara On The Guilty Verdict In U.S. v. Thomas Libous

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

“Public corruption is a scourge.  Every New Yorker wants us to work as hard as possible to end it.  But lies to law enforcement make the job of fighting corruption doubly difficult.  Today, a jury unanimously found that Tom Libous, the second highest ranking New York Senator, told lie after lie to hide the truth from federal agents investigating corruption in Albany.  Libous’s lies have been exposed, his crime has been proven, and Albany will be the better for it.”
