Albio Sires on Principles & Values

Democrat

 


2002: Avoided prosecution when chief fundraiser convicted

Early in the case, Altman had told Dwek in recorded conversation that he had previously passed a bribe to Albio Sires. At the time Altman made that comment, Sires was a Democratic congressman representing Hudson County. According to Altman's story, the bribe had been given to Sires while he was mayor of West New York, the town neighboring Union City--where so much of Altman's development work had been centered before he met Dwek, and when Sires was also speaker of the state assembly.

To federal prosecutors, Sires was always viewed as one of the ones that got away. In 2002, the US Attorney's office indicted Sires' chief fundraiser and one of his closest friends, Rene Abreu, on 42 counts of bank fraud, bribery, and extortion. Abreu was ultimately convicted, but the feds really didn't want him. They had told Abreu repeatedly that they had a Get Out of Jail Free card waiting for him if he would roll over on Sires. Abreu wouldn't.

Member of Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Sires is a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus:

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) is an informal group of 18 members of Congress of Hispanic descent. The Caucus is dedicated to voicing and advancing, through the legislative process, issues affecting Hispanic Americans in the US and the insular areas. The CHC was founded in December 1976 as a legislative service organization of the US House. Today, the CHC is organized as a congressional member organization, governed under the Rules of Congress and comprised solely of Members of the US Congress.

Although every issue that affects the quality of life of Americans is of concern to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, there are national and international issues that have a particular impact on the Hispanic community. The function of the Caucus is to serve as a forum for the Hispanic Members of Congress to coalesce around a collective legislative agenda. In addition to covering legislative action, the CHC also monitors Executive and Judicial policies that affect Hispanics.
