For one who flaunted her political capital on her relationships with corrupt is our Dear Dearest Addie.

Not a good day For Addie or anyone running in NYS as a Dem. How far will Preet go, well after he puts away Skelos, who who is next?

Shelly will talk like a canary and most likely it will be Andy Dandy.

For Now, Bye bye Addie, time for you to pay the consequences of your Safeact vote.

I never thought that could happen. No doubt we will pay for his appeal. But this is a good start. Steal from taxpayers and thirty years later, they may arrest you. Party line voters gave us this. People who live near golf courses.

I hope our Addie gets the chance to clean up Smelly's office. Experience counts when hiring.

Does Cuomo call a special ethics reform session before year end?

Does our Assemblywoman attend?

Does Assemblywoman vote yea or nay whether convicted Shelly gets to keep his lifelong pension and gold plated healthcare family plan.

Afterall Shelly's recent distinction surpasses anyone's expectations as how low Represetatives will go to sully the office they have sworn to represent.

Another scum convicted and soon another one. When will it stop..?? Addie Russell did the right thing in giving back monies that another corrupt politican gave for her re-election its about time Ritchie did the same.. Libeous was convicted and that money should be returned and when Skelos is convicted that monney should also be returned... If she cant and she has done something wrong with the money then she should come out immediately and state it.

"Silver's lawyers maintained the former lawmaker did not break the law and, in fact, was practicing politics in Albany as usual."

Truer words were never spoken!
Politics as usual.

Not one of you whineasses have ever contemplated running for a seat in our state congress.
You love to complain, but lack the backbone to throw Your hat in the ring. Hypocrites the lot of you.

6:23 Oh come Addie, is this you writing the same ole same old or some staffer afraid for their job. Who cares whether Skelos is next, glad to see him go too. When Skelos turned against every honest Republican endorseing behind close doors giving Cuomo the safeact endorsement he became dead to all upstate GOP'ers

Addie is foreever tied to the worst of the worst. Dems. are finished both in NYS and throughout the country.
