And Where Is Al Spain on Ethics Law?
Al Spain wants to lead a town, but he can't seem to get the courage to stand up to his boss Lou Desso even when Desso does something blatantly against the public interest like trying to weaken an ethics law.
Spain had a chance to show up at a Public Hearing in front of the County Executive this week like his opponent Charlie Smith did, to express opposition to Desso and his GOP allies efforts to weaken the county ethics law. But he chose not to.
You can read the entire editorial in the Times Union by clicking on the screen shot above. We hope Kathy Jimino follows the advice given her at the public hearing and in today's Times Union. She's never been at the center of any ethics controversy and as she begins to look back at her own legacy, it's clear this is not the time to enter such a storm.
