Times to Albany: Reform New York!

Today's Times reacts to the Bruno-Skelos news with a sharp editorial about the (poor) state of reform in Albany under the headline, "The More Things Change in Albany." Quoting from the piece:

"Here is just a short list of what needs to be fixed: a scandalous campaign finance system, a culture of back-room secrecy that serves lobbyists rather than the voters and a system for drawing political districts that comes straight out of Tammany Hall. Voters should demand concrete reforms from their state representatives, many of whom are going home this week to campaign for re-election."
