Albany Times Union: The Election Fix Is Still In

An excerpt from the Times Union Editorial Board:

“Our opinion: Once again, lawmakers leave town without tackling election and campaign finance reform. Why do they fear a more honest system?

The state Legislature left a big issue undone last week: fixing New York’s election system. That’s not to be confused, as the Legislature so often does, with fixing elections in New York.

This repair work is long overdue. But often standing in its way is the raft of other issues that come up in a legislative session, making the task easy to lose in the shuffle. And for too long, that has suited those in power just fine because this is a system designed to protect those in power.”
