Rusty Weiss points out that, like many other objects that are for sale, politicians are cheaper when you buy them in bulk:
Federal investigators were tracking nine Democrats in a probe involving State Senator Shirley Huntley, who wore a wire to record conversations with her colleagues. . . . Almost a quarter of the state Senate’s Democratic conference was in the FBI’s cross hairs last year, according to a court filing unsealed Wednesday. . . . Separate filings indicate that only one of the nine investigated Democrats is believed to have done nothing criminally negligent.
That last guy must have missed a memo.
Glad to see Albany’s gotten cleaned up in the post-Spitzer, post-Patterson era. I’ll give New York governor Andrew Cuomo credit for a simple and accurate assessment: “Complicated, but basically all bad.”
That phrase applies to the state legislature as a whole, no?
