Brooklyn State Sen. Carl Kruger is accused of accepting $1 million in bribes since 2006, and one of the projects caught up in the mess is, yep, Atlantic Yards, the Daily News reports: "The complaint also points out Kruger's involvement in supporting mega-developer Bruce Ratner's planned $4 billion stadium project in downtown Brooklyn. Kruger took elaborate steps to hide the payments, having checks funneled through a company called Adex Management Inc., then through a shell company, Olympian Strategic Development." Kruger's lawyer is the guy who got Diddy off, which makes this case Atlantic Yards's second-biggest connection to the hip-hop world. [NYDN; previously]
