Wyckoff Heights Medical Center kept secret cash stash for bribes, judge says
Wyckoff Heights Medical Center kept a secret bank account that a former CEO used to bribe a disgraced state assemblyman, an upstate judge said in a court decision. Orange County Supreme Court Judge Elaine Slobod's decision brought to light new details about the Bushwick hospital's alleged dealings with Tony Seminerio (D-Far Rockaway), who died in a North Carolina prison last year. Money from the Himrod account was used to make payments totaling $15,000 to Seminerio, other court filings charge.
