Hynes About to Make Someone Else Famous

At 2 p.m. this afternoon, Brooklyn District Attorney Joe Hynes will be handing out DVD copies of video surveillance allegedly showing former Judge Gerald Garson accepting a $1,000 bribe, and cigars, from an attorney.

A spokesman for the DA said that the footage will be played in court before more than a dozen copies are given out to interested media.

The last time the DA released footage — of Assemblywoman Diane Gordon asking someone to build her a dream home in exchange for help securing city contracts – it hit YouTube instantly.
