A CANDY BAR FOR THE BOTTOM BUNK: SILVERS NEW


BACKROOM DEAL
Assemblyman Karl Brabenec (R,C,I-Deerpark) issues a statement on the sentencing of Sheldon Silver

It may come as a shock to Sheldon Silver, but you dont receive travel expenses when
going from the yard to your six-by-eight cell. Although justice has been served in the form of a
prison sentence, Silver will still be receiving his taxpayer-funded, six figure pension while
behind bars. This is a pitiful reflection on New York City Democratic leadership, who have
repeatedly ignored ethics reform. It also sends the message to other political elites that you can
steal from the public and still escape in a golden parachute. Today we close the door on Sheldon
Silvers reign, but Albanys revolving door of corruption still remains intact.
