An old adage says political leaders and diapers must be changed often. Sheldon Silver is a perfect example.
He's been "pampered" by cronies in both parties for more than 20 years, leaving a lasting stench in Albany. Silver is now the subject of a federal investigation for failure to report income from a law firm, the latest of many scandals that have darkened his career and the state legislature's reputation.
Why do assembly members act like chew toys for this tyrant? It's time for term limits and disposable dynasties, not “huggies” hanging on for too long. Toss his tenure in the trash can.
