One of the major players in Democratic Party politics in NY has cut a deal in a pension pay-to-play scandal that essentially lets Steven Rattner off for a hefty fine, but no admission of wrong doing...Of course, maybe he did no wrong.
Republican Gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino attempted to make Rattner an issue last fall....but the MSM had decided Paladino was a loon and they wanted to curry favor with the man they knew would win...so they soft peddled Rattner, and now the AG has as well.
The Democratic Party has been linked too much with pension issues...Remember Alan Hevesi ?
The new ethical Albany promised by the incoming governor will be a daunting task as business as usual seems to still be OK.
