New York State Government Corruption

Where to begin.  Vito Lopez is finally out of the Assembly, however his 'non-profit' received over $420k from the New York City Council.  Who better to administer 'non-profit' funding than Vito Lopez?

And now for some humor.  Our brilliant Governor has a genius plan to help solve the corruption plaguing New York State - he is calling on the state legislature to pass 'anti-corruption' laws on themselves - of which he, the righteous Governor will surely enforce.  Not surprising, since he has also failed to respect our Second Amendment rights and believes that firearms are only used for hunting deer.  The man is a genius.

Is it now time to get serious about fixing New York?
