Public servants were servants in Fumo's home, too, prosecutors said.
Senate aides paid by taxpayers often worked for Fumo on his mansion on Green Street in Spring Garden - cleaning the floors, washing the deck, and supervising repairs.
For 18 months, one of the aides worked nearly full-time managing the restoration and refurbishment of the century-old structure. At the time, this aide was being paid to do legislative research; his state salary peaked at $45,857.
Even after the work was done, Fumo assigned the aide personal chores.
In one e-mail, he wrote: "I need a granite top on the 'filing cabinet' between the M/br and the dressing room. I would like it to match the marble on the sink as close as possible."
Soon after, Fumo sent another missive: "We are still having trouble with the front-door intercom. It is unclear and has a lot of hum. Please get this fixed ASAP. Also when are we getting the new cameras installed?"
Another aide cleaned the Green Street house roughly once a week between 2000 and 2002 while being paid $31,464 by the Senate as a clerk-typist. In addition, she often was dispatched to the house during the day to meet repair people and perform other tasks.
On March 25, 2001, Fumo had the following e-mail conversation about her: "I think we need a really good house cleaning."
The staffer replied he had been told that the house had never seemed so clean. Fumo countered, "That is not saying a lot!"
Citizens' Alliance staffers also worked at Fumo's home. As grand jurors said, the charity's "laborers were at his beck and call."
