It's just appalling to see the double standard used by the Office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman when dealing with alleged corruption by elected officials who serve as legislators and his or her donors versus the way he deals with the New York's Governor and his donors.
When an elected official is accused of favoritism in assigning funds to community groups in his or her district or helping a friend who donates to his or her campaign, the office of the Attorney General and the press will immediately call for an investigation and such elected official or community group will be accused of hanky panky.

Senator Reverend Diaz Prays for Congressman Anthony Weiner
New York State Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) has released the following statement today about United States Representative. Anthony Weiner (D-NY):
“The Bible teaches us to take care of others and to help others when they are down.
It is appalling to witness the way that Congressman Anthony Weiner’s colleagues have been running away from him during these past few days. It is just shameful to see how many of Congressman Weiner’s supposed friends – especially those who are elected officials – have abandoned him as the media makes a total mockery of him.
This letter is to object to the Coors Light Beer ads that are being displayed in New York to promote the 2011 Puerto Rican Day Parade.
While we all welcome corporate sponsorship to help make our Puerto Rican Day Parade celebration special, Coors Light is sponsoring Parade ads that show large bottles of beer with the "Emboricuate" which means "become Puerto Rican" message below the ad. Puerto Ricans are proud of our rich tradition and culture. The false impression these ads suggest is that drinking beer is an central part of our culture.
We welcome sponsors to help celebrate our heritage - not messages that suggest that we want people to come to our parade to get drunk with us.

Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz's Public Awareness Campaign
New York Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz released the following statement in response to the planned "F*** Ruben Diaz Festival" advertised online to be held on June 11th at the Metropolitan bar in Brooklyn.
Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) issued the following statement today in concert with today’s Rent Regulation Rally in Albany:
“There’s a lot of finger pointing about who will be responsible for New York rent control and rent stabilization laws that are still not extended and the pain it will cause for the poor and needy people of New York who rely upon these laws for decent housing.
Let’s consider two issues: the Millionaires’ Tax and Rent Control Laws. If Governor Cuomo would have included them both in his Budget, things might not be so bad.
Passing the Millionaires’ Tax could have helped New York’s government to prevent the loss of services in health care, education, senior citizen programs, etc.

Lo que usted debe saber por el Senador Rev. Rubén Díaz:
“Al igual que muchos que se enteraron de la predicción de que el Día del Juicio Final vendría sobre nosotros este pasado Sabado por la tarde, yo usé la ocasión para reflexionar sobre mi vida. Esta predicción nos hizo reflexionar sobre el juicio final que todos los seres vivientes, un día tendremos que enfrentar.
New York State Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz (D-Bronx) released the following statement:
“Like many who heard about the prediction that a Biblical rapture world come upon us yesterday, I used the occasion to reflect upon my life. The rapture prediction put many of us in mind of our final judgment.
Since no rapture took place and we are here continuing with our lives, I take from this a rededication to devoting myself to protect the institutions of the family which include marriage between a man and a woman, and to promote respect for all human life.
Advice from Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz to Governor Andrew Cuomo
New York State Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) has released the following statement in response to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s People First Campaign:
“It’s appalling to know that as rent stabilization and rent control laws are set to expire next month, Governor Andrew Cuomo has declared that the top priorities for his agenda include three other issues: same-sex marriage, a property tax cap, and ethics reform.
Our rent stabilization and rent control laws protect 2.5 million New Yorkers – many poor and needy, and mostly Black and Hispanics. These families depend upon rent protection for affordable housing
