Preet Bharara To Address State Legislature On Ethics - In Kentucky

In the Daily News:

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.

  1. Senator John Flanagan was recently asked on a radio show what issues he saw ascending in importance for NY State. This tone deaf, delusional plutocrat replied he thought greater focus should be placed upon organ donation. Flanagan is right out of the LI cess pool of corruption that gave us Dean and Adam Skelos. NY voters need to make Flanagan aware that he should invite Bharara to speak to our legislature on January 13th. Preet has a lot more of value to be heard by voters than Andrew Quid Pro Quomo! The way Preet has handled his takedowns of Shelly and Skelos maybe Quid Pro Quomo will not be around to give a SOS and Budget message! "Stay Tuned."
