New York - The prosecution's embattled star witness in a corruption trial of a pair of Executives from Fayetteville's COR Development and Governor Cuomo's most trusted confidante has wrapped up his Testimony.
Disgraced lobbyist Todd Howe wrapped up more than 40 hours on the stand, yesterday. Over the course of seven days Howe told the Court he found Jesus, incriminated himself for attempted credit-card fraud, and explained how he was the middleman in a scheme to line the pockets of Joseph Percoco with 'ziti.'
Howe testified about how he had facilitated 35-thousand dollars in bribes from COR Development Executives Steven Aiello and Joseph Girardi to Percoco so COR could skirt using union workers at their Hotel in Syracuse's Inner Harbor. In total, Howe claims to have served as the middleman in a pay-to-play scheme that funneled more than $300,00 to Percoco.
