If only Vito had been a true friend to his bro Shelly Silver, and stepped down ,none of this major drama would be going on, but now Shelly Silver is suffering the effects of this bad bromance!
Going out to help a friend is honorable, and Mr,silver is to be commended for it, but Mr. Lopez, you are a bad friend! Because not only have dragged your office and title down, but now your friend and indeed the entire assembly with it! The investigations are nothing more than politics as usual and for all the sharks swimming around looking for blood in the water, I doubt very highly they will find it, I do think this is much ado about nothing! ( and if there was such a issue with corruption why the JCOPE member didnt come forward before is beyond me! Can we say self service here?!!!) But whatever happens here it is clear that Vito Lopez has abused the friendship of Mr. Silver, abused his power and position, and That is where the buck should stop, plain and simple!!!
But since this is POLITICS of course it wont! So sad,the road to hell is paved with good intentions so they say, and Vito Lopez has put the NYs legislature back on that road!
