Dropping like flies, they are…
Skelos has been under investigation for allegedly engaging in a scheme to benefit AbTech Industries, in exchange for them hiring his son as a consultant. Skelos’ son, Adam, is also expected to be arrested. Adam Skelos also reportedly received a 20,000 dollar payment from American Land Services, a title insurance company, even though he never actually worked for them.
Skelos’ arrest comes three months after his Democratic counterpart in the lower house, Assembly Majority Speaker Sheldon Silver, was arrested on corruption charges, alleging that he extorted money from political donors. The culture of corruption in Albany is bi-partisan.
Not sure why they felt the need to say that… any Democrats have a two-level corruption like…
That corruption runs deep, as the Senate Republican who would be next in line to replace Skelos as Majority Leader is also under federal indictment. Thomas W. Libous is the second highest ranking Republican in the State Senate, but he faces accusationsthat he lied to federal agents during a corruption investigation.His son was recently convicted for committing tax fraud.
But then some people just have to always throw in the “both sides” whenever they can. It’s unnecessary. We know there are cases in both parties. But you know something… when you keep excusing the one overwhelmingly corrupt side by the few instances of the other, you’re not serving any real purpose but to try to look innocent in taking a side.
But sometimes taking a side is the sane thing to do, when one side is so guilty, so hateful, so dead-set against destroying everything and everyone that’s not like them, that they become a cancer. Take your “both sides” bullshit elsewhere.
We know what side is destroying things. And we know what side has worked for us. And that’s why we vote Democrat if we’ve been paying any attention at all.
