New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was arrested today on federal corruption charges. We've know about this current investigation for a month; yet, the Assembly Majority re-elected Silver as Speaker anyway. That's on top of the years of Silver covering up sexual abuse and harassment by his friends in the Assembly.
Even with Silver's arrest, the Assembly Majority is still standing by their crooked leader. They just announced that they support Silver and will keep him on the job.
I need you to call the Assembly Majority members and ask why they're still standing by Silver. You can find Assembly contacts online here.
If you live in Dutchess County, you can call Assemblywoman Didi Barrett at (845) 454-1703. Give Assemblywoman Barrett a call and ask her why she is standing by Silver even after his corruption arrest.
It's time to show Silver the door and time to ask the Assembly Majority how they can support him.
