RVC Man Pleads Guilty in Political Bribery Ring

Health-care consultant Solomon Kalish pleaded guilty to federal charges of bribing a state senator.

Solomon Kalish, a health consultant who lives in Rockville Centre, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to bribing former State Sen. Carl Kruger.

According to the Courthouse News Service, "Kalish is the sixth and final defendant convicted in what the U.S. Attorney's Office called 'a sprawling bribery scheme that ensnared a powerful New York State Senator, a lobbyist, two hospital CEOs and a physician.'"    

Kalish, 61, of Rockville Centre, faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for conspiracy to commit honest services fraud. He will be sentenced on May 22.

According to the NY Daily News, Kalish pleaded guilty in Manhattan Federal Court to conspiring with Kruger to receive payoffs. It was a $1 million bribery plot.
