Silver's Latest Scheme is a Difference Without a Distinction

Statement on Speaker Silver "Ceding" Control to Committee from Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I - East Fishkill)

"This reminds me of the time Bobby Valentine was ejected and tried to come back to the bench wearing a fake mustache and glasses. New Yorkers weren't fooled by Valentine, and we're not fooled by Silver. As long as Silver is speaker, we all know that he's still in charge of the Assembly Majority. Silver fully intends to maintain control from his seat not far behind the curtain. This is unacceptable. Silver has to go. If the Assembly Majority think they can pull one over on New Yorkers, they're very wrong."
