Former Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse, who was removed from office after pleading guilty to stealing campaign funds, is in line for a big payday from the city.
This story was first reported by the Times Union.
The paper also reports two councilmen were witnesses when Morse fell down stairs at City Hall last year.
The council voted unanimously on Tuesday night to award Morse $5,000, which would prevent him from filing any future lawsuits against the city.
Morse was a Cohoes firefighter for more than two decades. He also served as the city’s mayor for less than one term.
NewsChannel 13 tried to reach out to Morse for comment. We have not heard back.
