NY Post: D'Amato Testimony May Sink Skelos
While surely familiar with Long Island politics, Al D'Amato has thrown fellow Nassau County pol Dean Skelos under the bus, according to the NY Post.
The former US Senator and political rainmaker has testified he warned then Senate Majority Leader Skelos that his son's no-show job was causing problems at the insurance company where the Skelos lad was employed as part of an alleged quid pro quo for dad's help on legislation.
The Skelos' are on trial for alleged corruption, alhough one can understand why the elder Skelos is perplexed, as getting your kids a job is not uncommon help from a parent.
