Frank James Brasco (October 15, 1932 – October 19, 1998) was an American politician and a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from New York.


Brasco was born in Brooklyn, New York. He graduated High School and received a B.A. from Brooklyn College in 1955; and an LLB from Brooklyn Law School in 1957. He was also a member of the United States Army Reserve.[1]


After serving as assistant district attorney for Kings County, New York, Brasco was elected to Congress in 1966 and served from January 3, 1967, until January 3, 1975.[2]

Brasco was indicted in 1973, along with his uncle, Joseph Brasco, on federal bribery and conspiracy charges, over payoffs he received from a Bronx trucking company which was seeking mail hauling contracts from the US Post Office. The first trial led to a hung jury. He was subsequently convicted and sentenced to five years in prison, with all but three months suspended. He was also fined and disbarred. He did not run for re-election in 1974.[3][4]


Brasco died on October 19, 1998 (age 66 years, 4 days). The location of his interrment is unknown.[5]
