The Fog of Ethics in Albany

Feature article in the New York Times

Extortion, bribery, racketeering — those are just some of the crimes that have sent members of the New York State Legislature to jail in the last five years. The good news is that the authorities caught up with them.

Gov asks mayor & Thompson for B.P.C. help

By Julie Shapiro

Feature article in the Downtown Express

Paterson wants to take $300 million from the authority, which would be an unprecedented use of the authority’s funds. Paterson tried and failed to do something similar earlier this year, and his current proposal is also far from a done deal.
