The state legislature wants to hear ethics reform ideas from the corruption-busting U.S. Attorney who got convictions against former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos.
Unfortunately for New Yorkers, it's the Kentucky State Legislature who asked to hear from Preet Bharara — not the Empire State's.
The Manhattan U.S. Attorney — who has wrangled convictions against a dozen current and former state officeholders since 2009 — will address Kentucky legislators Jan. 6, the same day New York’s legislature resumes its session.
Bharara seemed to have some fun with the invite on Twitter, writing that he was “(h)onored by invitation to address entire state legislature about public corruption next week," without mentioning where.
Still awaiting word on whether the US attorney personally addresses the proverbial "Third Man in the Room" in Albany if/when he charges him with corruption.
