The Year in Albany Dysfunction


Everybody is coming out with their year in review lists this week (Dave Barry’s is a gem, as usual), but one of my favorites is Bill Hammond’s rundown of Albany shenanigans in 2008. Sure you remember Love Client Number Nine, but there was also the parole board member who solicited 11 year olds, the assemblyman who embezzled millions in government and union funds–including $95,000 from a little league team–and the former senate majority leader under FBI investigation who took a job as CEO and lobbyist for a major state contractor. And much more. Good times.
