Pols Arrested in Plot to Rig New York City Mayoral Race

New York State Sen. Malcolm Smith (D) and City Councilman Dan Halloran (R) "were arrested this morning on charges they plotted to rig this year's mayoral election through fraud and bribes," the New York Post reports.

"The pols allegedly formed an alliance built on cash payments and fraud to get Smith -- one of the state's top Democrats -- placed on the GOP mayoral ballot, sources said."

Law enforcement sources tell NBC 4 New York that Smith "was allegedly involved in a plot to try to get onto this year's GOP mayoral ballot by offering payments to Republican county chairmen."
