The Slant – Ethics Reformers’ Reproach

We are days away from the finalization of the state budget, and once again ethics reform proposals will be left on the cutting room floor. Joining us on this week’s podcast are Blair Horner, executive director of the New York Public Interest Research Group and Barbara Bartoletti, legislative director of the League of Women Voters. They will tell us why the governor and legislature are punting on ethics.

And City & State editor-at-large Gerson Borrero has the latest bochinche on a birthday bash for the city council speaker thrown by the corrections officers union.
