Shock story of the day

Bruno charged with corruption. The entire New York legislature is corrupt, has been forever (at least since Theodore Roosevelt moved from Albany to Washington) and everyone has known it. I don’t ask, “why Bruno?” because he’s as good a place to start as any, but why not every single sitting politician up there?

    Joe Bruno was the most effective leader ever in the NY State Senate and the least corrupt of the whole Albany lot. He made the unfortunate choice of being the sole Republican swimming in a cesspool overflowing with Democrats.They oughta be looking into that creep Sheldon Silver and many, many others before going after Joe Bruno. Joe brought a lot of good business and jobs to Rensselaer and Saratoga Counties and was a fine public servant; Joe will remembered for all of the good that he did instead of these trumped up charges which were no doubt aided and abetted by the disgraced Spitzer who was first exposed by Sen Bruno. Fight the charges, Joe, don’t let those bastards get you down.

      Really? I never liked what I read of him – in fact, I thought he was as corrupt as Sheldon Silver, if that was possible, but I’ll admit to a Connecticut resident’s view of out-of-state politics and if I got the wrong impression, I wouldn’t be surprised.

  2. Bruno is an amiable political hack who gamed the system just like everyone else in Albany, Shelly Silver, especially. But as the fellow above points out, he is a Republican so what better sacrificial lamb to offer up to the public by the Democrats so to protect their phony-baloney jobs.
