It will take courage to get rid of Silver

(Continued)

Curiously, our local assemblyman, Bill Magee of the 121st District, took part in the 2000 revolt against Silver, but was not punished. Asked last week by The Daily Star whether Silver should resign, we got this disappointing answer:

“He (Silver) has apologized for a mistake that he’s made,” Magee said, “and said it won’t happen again.”

That’s just pitiful. If saying “I’m sorry and I won’t do it again” is the standard for every heinous act, then we wouldn’t need prisons. What we do need now are some Assembly members with the courage to “strike a king” and get rid of Sheldon Silver.
