Since 2006, more than 30 New York lawmakers have been forced from office for one malefaction or another, and several remain in prison. Silver’s state senate counterpart, former majority leader Dean Skelos, is awaiting retrial on corruption charges of his own.

I mean the Clinton Foundation is a cesspool.”...
He also blasted Attorney General Loretta Lynch, claiming that she impeded the investigation into Clinton’s private server... Kallstrom also said that FBI Director James Comey and the rest of the FBI’s leadership were responsible for holding back the investigation, not the rest of the bureau. “The agents are furious with what’s going on, I know that for a fact,” he said.

A scholarly study newly released in The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science has revealed that most convicts in jail register as Democrats. The study stated, “Democrats would benefit from additional ex-felon participation.” The professors who authored the study came from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University. The study found that felons registered Democratic over Republican by a six-to-one margin in some states, including New York, where 61.5% are Democrats and only 9% GOP. Another fact discovered was that 73% of the felons who would vote would vote Democrat.
The 57-year-old bachelor, who fathered three children out of wedlock with three different women, repeatedly won at least 70 percent of the vote as a Democrat. Morrissey said in a telephone interview that the results show people aren't interested in the drama that landed him in jail.

He also noted that preventing former prisoners from voting disproportionately affects racial minorities. Nearly six million Americans cannot vote because of a felony conviction.

Chicago Alderman Joe Moore was to have received an award for "political reform" at the White House. Moore, however, was a no-show in D.C. because on that same day he admitted that he had been interviewed by the FBI in an investigation into political corruption. Now the White House announced that it is putting Moore's award on hold until his status with these charges are settled. Moore was to have been honored as a "a pioneer for political reform, governmental transparency and democratic governance" until the charges against him became known in Washington. The Alderman has been accused of political payoffs and waste.
"It's a private matter involving sex," they chanted, attempting to immunize even Clinton's felonious perjury from investigation because the underlying facts about which he testified and lied "concerned a private matter about sex."
