Reputed mobster names Yonkers GOP chairman in extortion trial testimony
A reputed mobster has made allegations involving the chairman of the Yonkers Republican Party during testimony for an extortion trial in federal court.
Accused mobster Mo Sanginiti testified under oath Monday that 33-year-old Zehy Jereis, who also works for state Senator Nick Spano (R-Yonkers), was paid to find out about criminal investigations targeting Sanginiti. Another allegation stems from an FBI document in which Sanginiti says Zehy claimed he could make the investigation go away with the help of Al Pirro, the Westchester district attorney?s husband.
Jereis? attorney says all the information is uncorroborated and untrue. However, he admits his client may have met Sanginiti. The district attorney also said the allegations against her husband are bogus.
