Sheldon Silver Arrested
Sheldon Silver, who likely would have provided the only resistance to Cuomo’s agenda that will destroy public education, has been arrested today on federal corruption charges.
Silver, the long time speaker of the New York State Assembly, will likely be replaced with a Cuomo ally. With the Republican controlled Senate backing Cuomo’s agenda, it is now reasonable to expect that the governor will get everything he demanded yesterday.
The last layer of defense for students, teachers, and citizens who value locally controlled schools is the opt-out movement.
