Exposing Public Corruption in NY: Laughable

It’s only a matter of time before we see former Erie County District Attorney Mark Sacha’s evidence of election law violations perpetrated by Steve Pigeon and the minor fusion parties with which he brokers deals. In the meantime, we get to enjoy Sacha’s relentless criticism of Governor Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, which is turning out to be nothing but a lot of show.
State government in New York is a set of two compliant mafia families, and any effort to expose or repair the horrible, corrupt way New York operates is strictly forbidden – it violates the code of silence. Don’t kill the job.
Also – do you remember when Joe Illuzzi was alive, Pigeon would feed him articles and information to post? Then Bob McCarthy would get around to printing it in the paper in some way? Now that Illuzzi’s dead, Pigeon only has Parlato and the Niagara Falls Reporter, and no one really reads that regularly outside of the Falls. So, now, he funnels his advertorials about how influential he is directly to the News, which thankfully bothered to vet the information with other people.
One of these days, the law’s going to catch up.
