Witness: Ex-NY Senate Leader's Son Said He'd Smash His Head
A witness at the corruption trial of former New York Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos says the politician's son threatened to smash his head if he tried to make him show up for a no-show job.
Wednesday's testimony from Chris Curcio came a day after opening statements in the Manhattan federal court trial of Skelos and his son Adam.
Curcio was vice president of sales and marketing at a medical malpractice insurer that hired Adam Skelos in 2013.
Curcio says the 33-year-old son of the Republican legislator rarely came to work. Curcio says Adam Skelos berated him for pointing it out, saying he wasn't fit to shine Skelos' shoes and threatening to smash his head if he complained again.
Dean and Adam Skelos say they are not guilty.
