New York Senator Carl Kruger, who opposed a gay marriage bill in 2009, has been outed as gay.
The New York Post outed the Democrat and named his live-in boyfriend, gynecologist Michael Turano, amid charges of corruption.
“Closeted Brooklyn state Sen. Carl Kruger, a Democratic powerhouse, traded political favors for more than $1 million in bribes over the last five years – which his live-in boyfriend helped launder, the feds charged yesterday. Kruger and his secret longtime companion, Manhattan gynecologist Michael Turano, were among eight men arrested in a sweeping government 'pay-to-play' corruption scandal,” the Post wrote on Thursday.
Turano is accused of using bribe money to pay for a Bentley luxury sedan and the mortgage on the multimillion-dollar home the men share with Turano's mother and brother.
Kruger and Turano were among the eight men arrested in the federal probe.
In 2009, Kruger joined eight Senate Democrats in voting against a gay marriage bill approved by the Assembly and supported by then-Governor David Paterson. Governor Andrew Cuomo recently pledged his support for a new effort to approve the bill this year.
guys like him give gays a bad name.

Another closeted politician ? Who would have thought they existed and spread their self hate thru crooked means ?
I hope he has a cell mate named Bubba to put him on the right path.
he might end up being the librarian whose best friend is a mouse and can't sit down because of all the… loving.
