Latest Convictions Must Pave The Way For Changes In Albany’s Corrupt Ways

The Buffalo News editorializes on  the need for Governor Cuomo’s State of the State address  to focus on reforming Albany, arguing that  “(i)f it isn’t dominated by the need to address Albany’s intolerable levels of corruption, then he will have missed his moment and New Yorkers will be the worse for it.

First and foremost, Cuomo needs to focus on money: that which is given by donors and that which is earned by lawmakers outside the Legislature. It was outside money that brought Silver to ruin. It creates conflicts, or at least the appearance of conflicts, that infect the legislative process.”
