In April of this year my former colleague Beth Foster and I had the pleasure of participating Common Cause's Reform Day of Action. Included in our list of meetings was Assemblyman Anthony Seminerio, who now stands accused of banking $500,000 for his official duties.
We spoke about the many items on the reform agenda: campaign finance, redistricting, rules and, of course, ethics.
The Assemblyman's response to our position that Albany needed reforming? "Why? What's wrong with Albany," he said rhetorically.
