Sampson’s power, reach on display in trial

When Alexander Solomon was assigned to prosecute Edul Ahmad, a Brooklyn real estate agent indicted in a $50 million mortgage fraud scheme in August 2011, he likely had little idea of the shockwaves that would result.

Aside from forging the credentials of would-be homebuyers, Ahmad had doled out $188,500 to State Senator John Sampson which, according to prosecutors, Sampson used to cover up years of embezzlement in exchange for granting political favors to Ahmad.
