A controvercial case involving attorney Armand D'Amato, brother of Alfonse D'Amato, (D-NY), is now pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit. Unisys Corp. vice president was in charge of marketing radar missile -control systems to the Navy. In the 1980s Gardner used over $40 million of Usisys' money for bribes, illegal campaign comtributions and other crooked deals to stimulate sales. One of the people who Gardner wanted to influence was Al D'Amato, who sat on the senate Appropriations Committee. Toward that end, from 1986 to 1988, Gardner paid $120,000 to brother Amand, ostensibly for such make-work as "providing reports".
