NY Governor Shuts Down Corruption Commission When Then they begin investigating him
Democrats are corrupt to their demonic core. And to prove it, just look at major news headlines on any given day.
The Democrats are so corrupt, that even with a complicit media, they can’t keep their shenanigans out of the news.
A great example of Democrat corruption is happening in New York, where according to Reuters,
A federal jury considering whether to convict Sheldon Silver, one of New York’s most powerful politicians for two decades, is scheduled to hear closing arguments in his public corruption trial on Monday.
U.S. prosecutors in New York have accused Silver of using his position as the speaker of the state assembly to collect millions of dollars in illegal bribes and kickbacks in exchange for official acts.

Kickbacks and bribes in exchange for favors. The same thing Hillary and Bill Clinton have been accused of doing (and actually did). I love how the article goes on to give Silver’s excuse for accepting bribes and kickbacks for official acts.
But Silver’s defense lawyers have argued that the government has improperly attempted to criminalize what is, in essence, business as usual in the state capital of Albany.
Even his own attorney knows that for Democrats, bribes and kickbacks are “business as usual.” This is BECAUSE IT IS!
And the story in New York gets better, as the article continues:
Silver’s former counterpart in the state Senate, Dean Skelos, is himself on trial for corruption in the same Manhattan courthouse, charged with coercing several companies into sending payments to his son Adam in order to secure his political support.
The two trials represent the highest-profile cases in a string of prosecutions and ethics scandals that have ensnared dozens of New York lawmakers in recent years.
So we now have TWO of the highest ranking politicians in New York under indictment. Then, we learn that one more person rounds out the triumvirate of power.
Under the state’s political system, the assembly speaker and the senate majority leader, together with the governor, comprise the so-called “three men in a room” who exercise virtually unfettered control over the legislative and budget process in Albany.
That’s right, the governor, Andrew Cuomo.
As reported in the New York Post,
After claiming he never met with reps from the giant real-estate firm at the center of the corruption cases against Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, records show that Gov. Cuomo actually did meet with them in 2011.
“No. Never,” Cuomo told reporters in Syracuse when asked if he had ever met with officials from Glenwood Management. But on Thursday, meeting logs showed he talked to Glenwood reps in 2011.
And then there were three.
Cuomo shut down the commission he started to monitor corruption, when that commission began investigating his corruption. There is a reason Cuomo isn’t running for president against arguably the most corrupt Democrat in politics. Cuomo knows that Hillary Clinton knows where Cuomo’s bones are buried.
Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, whose office is prosecuting both Silver and Skelos, has criticized that structure. Bharara described the structure, as “one of the most corrupt governments in the nation.”
Back to the little fish. The report continues,
Silver is accused of awarding $500,000 in state grants from a secret fund to a prominent cancer researcher, Robert Taub, who in turn referred patients suffering from asbestos exposure to Silver’s law firm. Silver collected millions of dollars in referral fees and settlements as a result, prosecutors said.
He is also charged with accepting $700,000 in kickbacks for steering real estate developers to another law firm, with the understanding that he would provide needed support for the developers on key legislation.
Democrat scoundrels promising to be for the people, and they are, as long as they the scoundrels are the people!
