Well, at least this time it's not a Democrat

I remember being told once that nothing moved in Albany unless Joe Bruno approved of it. (Since I was there to lobby for something or other regarding access to emergency contraception, this meant it was pretty much DOA.) I never met the guy, but I got the sense that he was eminently powerful.


Joseph Bruno, the Republican former Majority Leader of the New York State Senate, was indicted by a federal grand jury today on eight counts of public corruption, reports the Times Union of Albany.
At least he didn't have any say in filling New York's Senate seat.


  1. I thought your title, "at least this time it's not a Democrat" referred to the choice of Gillibrand as the Empire State's new Senator!
