The perils of friendship
One of the good things about the NYS legislature is the camraderie that is shared there. Positions and titles aside, there is a very human quality about the realationships shared by the individuals who do the peoples work there, and as they care about each other, so to do they care about the people they serve! So its very easy to see how, given that perspective, this Vito Lopez issue has arisen! I mean can anyone truly believe that the consumate politican Shelly Silver would delibarately do something criminal, something that could endanger all around him from the Gov on down? I think, and believe that this was nothing more than a major mistake, a mistake made in the spirit of friendship and camraderie, something that NYS has, and that Washington DC could learn from! And all the attempts to make political hay out of this are simply just that, political! Vito lopez should resign, that is without question, but to try to make a political mountain out of this Molehill, ill serves what has been achieved in NYS these past few years, and what stands to be accomplished in the future! Weve had enough of such politics , that is what brought Gov cuomo to office, and civility to a acrimonious legislature, lets not go backward!!!! Tone down the rhetoric and back away from the political trough people!!!
