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.
