Star Witness in Corruption Trial of Bronx Assemblyman Admits to Turning Wire Off to Get BJ From Prostitute Sent by Businessmen



The public corruption trial of Bronx Assemblyman Eric Stevenson took a wild twist Wednesday when a political operative who wore a wire for the feds admitted that he once stopped recording to privately enjoy a quickie with a prostitute.

Sigfredo Gonzalez, a former Stevenson political ally-turned-star-witness, testified that four Bronx businessmen who allegedly bribed Stevenson $22,000 to help them open adult daycare centers sent up a hooker to Gonzalez's Albany hotel room as a gift in February 2013.
