ROCKVILLE CENTRE, NY — July 13, 2017 — Former federal prosecutor, Senator Todd Kaminsky, released the following statement after learning that former Speaker of the New York State Assembly, Sheldon Silver’s corruption conviction had been overturned.

“For years we have been relying on federal prosecutors to bring the lion’s share of corruption cases against state officials,” said Senator Todd Kaminsky. “It is clear that — regardless of the eventual outcome of this matter — we can no longer afford to do so. It is well past time that our state legislature enact real anti-corruption measures and empower local district attorney offices to bring corruption cases. Voters have no doubt that corruption exists on all levels of government and today’s decision is one more striking blow to their faith in honest government — it is time for our state to step up.”

    This is a disgrace. This is also why the peasants don’t believe justice is served. It is only for them and not for the rich and famous. Think Cosby now Silver.

    The law in this country is clearly just to squash the peasants.

    Can’t wait to hear what DeBlasholio has to say about this.
