I really don't see anything happening.

The very people Cuomo would have to rail against to get things changed are the very people he needs to advance his legislative agenda. That is unless he uses his "political capital" to oust Silver, alla Pataki installing Bruno, who has total control over his fiefdom.

Good points, Matt, and the conventional wisdom is that you can never be too cynical about Albany politics. But surely even these guys won't be able to get away with another phony ethics "reform" like the last one (in 2007), will they? And they've gotta do something, don't they?

Matthew

I agree, Bob, but your premise assumes people outside of the press actually cares about ethics reform when we the public view "every politician as being corrupt".
