In Albany news, former Speaker Silver is said to be taking his conviction in stride, confident he can win on appeal.
Meanwhile Albany as usual goes on. The News reports NYSUT, the powerful teachers union, spent $14.4 M in a recent twelve month reporting period on lobbying and support of political groups like the WFP who support their agenda.
That's just a little part of the lobbying pool. Makes Shelly's issues look kinda small.
