Time for a New Direction in New York
Sheldon Silver’s career ends in disgrace, but the disgrace is not his alone. Every Democrat who voted for him for Speaker knew what was going on. How things are done in Albany is an open secret. Every Democratic Party elected official who was in a position to do something, and didn’t, should resign immediately.
This is the face of not just the Democratic Party in New York State, but the entire political culture. Corruption is endemic and every single voter must now choose to be part of the problem or part of the solution.
