Two down, one to go ? Is that what Preet Bharara is gunning for ?
A conviction of former Senate chief Dean Skelos and his son is another notch in the holster for the new Sheriff of Albany.
What is going on is the criminalization of politics, as getting a kid a job is like standard fare. How many of Mike Long's kids got jobs under Pataki.
The problem is making it too obvious....too egregious.
The Skelos deal involved a clearly no-show gig in a venue that had matters before the state.
The Skelos lad had no rationale for being hired and they did way too much on the phone.
There's a reason Deep Throat came to a parking lot with no microphones and cameras around. But today everything is on tape or on-line.
And if your kid can't find a job....let him live at home.
