Other than a local Fox29 station report below… I don’t remember this being reported in the mainstream. More information at guns.com who noted:
Schilirio is one of 600 mayors who signed on to an open letter to Harry Reid and the United States Senate from MAIG and published as a paid advertisement in USA Today.

WASHINGTON – For the second time in three days, prosecutors in New York announced the arrest of a sitting state politician accused of breaking the law for his own benefit.
This week’s rapid-fire round of arrests caps the latest push by federal prosecutors to crack down on illegal activity by elected officials across the country — and New York is not alone among states whose public officials are compiling a jarringly long rap sheet.
In New York, 11 state senators have been charged with crimes over the last six years. In Illinois, four of the last seven governors have been convicted on criminal charges. New York and California have each racked up thousands of federal public corruption convictions over the last few decades. [...]
