My Thoughts On The Conviction Of Former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver

The jury has spoken – and quite loudly. Everyone in the State Capitol had better be listening. 

Former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has been found guilty of corruption charges. The Legislature and Governor have a duty to change the culture in which his criminal behavior was able to exist.
