    In the last few weeks, eight or ten black and hispanic state representatives from areas near the city have been charged with corruption. The New York Post carried the story but I did not have a chance to read it word for word. Of course the race card was played by supporters. My question is: did these alleged criminals vote in favor of the NY Safe Act? If the charges are true it amounts to criminals voting to make law abiding citizens criminals and what were they promised if anything in exchange for their YES votes on the measure and by whom? If anyone can shed light on this subject I would appreciate the information. ed nichols

    NYS isn't even in the race with Illinois for corruption.

    I think the US Government-FBI, IRS, Justice Dept. is right up there with them.

    Over the past seven years, 32 state officeholders have been convicted of a crime, censured or otherwise accused of wrongdoing, according to the New York Public Interest Research Group.

    Not includind indictments, we can respectfully top Illinois.
