AM Stevenson may find that NY jurors, white and nonwhite, don’t like corrupt pols.
Prosecutors, who will begin opening statements in the trial Tuesday, claim the embattled pol illegally pocketed more than $22,000 in cash and campaign contributions from four co-defendants who allegedly bribed Stevenson to obtain favors and legislation helpful to their Bronx adult day care centers.
All of the co-defendants have pleaded guilty.
Since Monday, sources say Stevenson put out a call for supporters to come to the trial.
