New York Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin surrendered to authorities on Tuesday and was subsequently arrested, facing charges related to campaign finance fraud, Your Content has learned.

He is expected to appear in Manhattan federal court later today to address these allegations.

Federal prosecutors and the FBI launched an investigation into Benjamin after suspicions arose regarding his involvement in a campaign finance fraud scheme.

The focus of the investigation centers around whether Benjamin played a role in the distribution of state funds to contributors or their projects.

Authorities are examining whether this distribution was part of an illicit scheme aimed at deceiving campaign finance regulations.

The FBI’s interest in Benjamin was sparked following the arrest of his fundraiser, Gerald Migdolin, for wire fraud in November.

Migdolin’s arrest shed light on potential irregularities in Benjamin’s past fundraising efforts, prompting a deeper examination by federal authorities.

The charges brought against Benjamin include bribery, wire fraud, and falsification of records.

The Lt. Gov.’s appearance in court today marks a significant development in this ongoing investigation, with the legal proceedings expected to shed further light on the alleged campaign finance fraud scheme, according to The New York Post.
