Bharara took on New York Assembly Speaker, Sheldon Silver, in office since 1994, for funneling taxpayer money through his law firm. Silver had also been receiving kickbacks from two firms that wanted the Speaker to vote in their favor on bills regarding subsidies and tax rates. Bharara’s team uncovered the corruption and had Silver arrested on January 22, 2015.
Just four months later, Bharara indicted the New York Senate Majority Leader, Dean Skelos, on corruption charges.
Using his momentum from these high profile corruption busts, Bharara has begun a probe into the dealings of Democratic Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio.
Bharara recently continued his crusade by launching a corruption investigation into New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
