Allies, Foes say Bruno should not go to prison

Full story: WNYT Albany

He was a fixture at grand openings and ribbon cuttings. Senator Joe Bruno always showed up for the opening of projects he helped steer here.

He got what he deserved. He cashed in on the trust of NYS taxpayers for his own profit. No one "deserves" anything but a paycheck for doing their job, certainly not the right to use the offices of his employment to further his own bottom line. Bruno and his his supporters' inability to see what he did wrong is exactly why our state government is a diaster area. No one in state gov. thinks they're doing anything wrong, yet for some reason everything's wrong. This is one example why.
EIGHT YEARS is more fair

Shame on the spineless judge letting this old windbag talk nonsense FOR THREE HOURS!. Tell the creep he was found guilty, REVOKE his bail, and throw him out of the courtroom after sentencing of max. EIGHT years. And of course, handcuffs and chains. Sad THAT didn't happen.

Screw him. Anybody else this happened to would be in jail for the 8 years. Who cares what he did, he's a felon.

Of course all the other crooked politicians would chime up and not want jail time because they are just as corrupt as him. Oh wait that goes for most politicians. They are the reason our economy is what it is and the deficit. All their foolish spending and rediculous salaries and extra perks. They rape us tax payers everyday.

That "service to the state" was performed to make him richer, so don't hand me that line of crap. And, since whene does age have anything to do with a criminal's punishment?

Lock the old fart up and let him die in prison...it'll be an excellent lesson to the younger theives in our Legislature.

This is a good man who has done so much for us.
Isn't he one of the first ones involved with
Global Foundries. I like Joe what about the
other birds in the boroughs of NYC. Leave him
alone and yall get a hobby.
