Buffalo News & NY Post Weigh In On Reforming Albany

Today’s Buffalo News editorial argues that “the current leaders of the Senate and Assembly will never be more open to reforming their chambers’ self-dealing rules than they are today, burdened by the shame brought on their institutions by former Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos and former Democratic Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. They still may not go along – Albany’s politicians are easily seduced by the easy money that has been theirs for the taking – but if Cuomo truly pushed the need for reform, and kept pushing it, the prospects of real change would be at their historic zenith.

Among those changes should be tight caps on political donations and a ban on outside income, the lack of which have played prominent roles in Albany’s corruption.”

The NY Post editorializes that  Albany leaders should stop talking and start cleaning up the Capitol, including several steps as examples.
