NewsChannel 13 is learning more about the FBI informant at the center of the corruption scandal surrounding State Senator Malcolm Smith.
The NBC affiliate in New York quotes several sources who say the informant is 40-year-old real estate developer Moses Stern.
NBC 4 reports that Stern is himself accused of orchestrating a $100 million fraudulent real estate deal and is now in debt that amount.
The station says Stern is the man who helped the FBI tape several of the politicians linked to senator Smith's alleged efforts to get on the republican ballot for New York City mayor
