At the end of the day, what Bruno did is not fundamentally different than what big-shot lawyer Silver and countless other legislators do. It's much more an indictment of Albany that the culture of corruption is tolerated with basically no oversight (short of the vocal but mostly powerless GooGoos). I think it's a lot shadier that Bruno got a job as a high-powered lobbyist literally days after resigning his senate seat... like he and so many other legislators and staffers have done over the years. That's a lot more dubious if you ask me.

You (rightly) make a big deal about the prospect of soldiers' votes not being counted. I hope you'll make an issue of attempts to exclude non-soldiers' votes.
