Half of NY Wants Sheldon Silver Gone – Except his Voters

The state ethics commission last month issued a report charging that Lopez harassed at least eight female staffers, most of them after Silver approved a secret settlement in return for two of the victims’ promising not to reveal the incidents, The New York Post reported.

Lopez finally resigned last month after he faced possible expulsion.

One Response to “Half of NY Wants Sheldon Silver Gone – Except his Voters”

  1. I suggest that the Jewish Press gets there head out of the Post and into the Torah. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is an enabler and has allowed democrats to commit unethical practices too long in Albany.
