David Samson, former chairman of the New York and New Jersey Transit Authority, was convicted for pressuring United Airlines to reinstate a money-losing flight so that he could get easy access to his weekend home in South Carolina.
United had to pay some big fines for their part in the money-losing move.
And Mr. Samson? He’s really got it tough. He was sentenced to 4 years’ probation and one year of house arrest in his South Carolina home.
