Some incumbents under a cloud/indictment were dumped, like Sen. Malcolm Smith of Queens, but indicted Brooklyn Sen. John Sampson easily won re-election, with 54.2% of the vote, while his nearest challenger, Dell Smitherman, got only 29.9%.
Sampson also played a very curious role in marketing EB-5 investments to Chinese investors. And yes, there was 2009 fundraiser for him at Forest City Ratner offices.
