NYS Comptroller Tom DiNapoli will be the deliveryman of bad news for years to come as the cost of sustaining the state's pension largesse goes up and up.
Now there is speculation the "sheriff of Wall Street" Eliot Spitzer will challenge Mr. DiNapoli for the Democratic nomination for Comptroller next year.
New Yorkers will see what the Comptroller does with Governor Cuomo's "pension smoothing" proposal designed to allow local governments a fixed cost for the retirement program.
As sole trustee of the retirement system, the Comptroller is politically vulnerable for its high cost which is the result of decades of pension sweeteners and legalized gaming of the system.
