The bipartisan rogues gallery of Albany

This is a recap of recent developments in New York's legislature.

The Democratic Assembly speaker has been indicted for a massive bribes and kickback scheme.

The Republican leader of the Senate is under investigation, also for his outside sources of income.

The Republican deputy leader of the Senate has been indicted for lying to the FBI.

Every living former Assembly speaker and Senate majority leader has been indicted, all for financial crimes.

So how has that "lesser of two evils" voting strategy working out?

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." -Benjamin Franklin.

If you're tired of the insanity, check out the Green Party of New York. Or if you're so inclined, the Libertarian Party of New York. These are the only two organized alternatives in this state to the two corporate parties.
