A convicted con-artist has admitted to attempting to lean on Western New York Congresswoman Kathy Hochul to have his case dismissed. James Lagona has admitted he offered to lend his influence as a religious leader to Hochul's campaign in exchange for having her husband, U.S. Attorney William Hochul Jr., dismiss fraud charges against him.

Hochul's campaign ultimately called the FBI, who arrested Lagona. Lagona faces 20 years behind bars for his role in a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme, along with an additional ten years for his discussions with Hochul's campaign.
