Bronx Democrat Eric Stevenson tells the New York Daily News (http://nydn.us/Zee5WB ) in an interview published Saturday that he “unequivocally” denies that he took the money.
Stevenson denies it. He told the newspaper he “never got into any situation of taking money from these people.”
He said he was reading the Bible when agents came to arrest him.
Investigators say they have video recordings of Stevenson accepting envelopes stuffed with cash.
Stevenson wouldn’t discuss those details of the case with the newspaper.
