Sen. Malcolm Smith won’t step down from office

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Despite his arrest on corruption charges, former Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith says he's not stepping down from office.

Smith was arrested Tuesday, accused of trying to bribe his way into the New York City mayor's race.

A criminal complaint says that in meetings with an undercover FBI agent posing as a wealthy real estate developer, Smith agreed to bribe up to five leaders of Republican Party county committees in New York City's five boroughs so he could run for mayor as a Republican.
