NY Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Steps Down Corruption Charges In Payoffs/Kickbacks
January 29, 2015

Sheldon Silver, the longtime leader of the New York state Assembly, will relinquish the position he has held for 21 years in the wake of federal corruption charges, a top lawmaker announced late on Tuesday.

The decision announced by Majority Leader Joseph Morelle came after Democratic lawmakers met behind closed doors for two days to discuss their response to the turmoil that has threatened one of the longest careers in American state politics.

'He said to me he will not impede the transition,' said Morelle, surrounded by most of the other 105 Assembly Democrats. 'We'll have a vacancy on Monday.'

As majority leader, the No. 2 post in the chamber, Morelle would be the acting speaker from the moment Silver resigns until the lawmakers formally convene again Monday. At that point, they plan to amend their rules to keep him as interim speaker until February 10.

That's intended to give any other member a chance to express interest and explain how he or she would lead, and make the selection a more open process than it has been in the past, Assemblyman Thomas Abinanti said.

'I think what carried the day is...

Not alone in money problems...New York State Police have done a poor job keeping track of more than $2 billion in seized assets and didn't get enough in return when selling them off, a state audit has found. The audit by the state Comptroller's Office found that nearly $993 million in seized property was misclassified as "pending disposition," when, in fact, the cases associated with them had been closed. In some instances state police troops didn't even report seized property to headquarters, including $39,967 in cash and three vehicles in one cash.
