An editorial about Albany pork

The Times discusses Albany pork in this editorial this morning.

Former Assemblyman Brian McLaughlin, a Democrat from Queens, is now in prison after giving to a Little League, then stealing almost $100,000 back. The trial of the former Senate majority leader, Joseph Bruno, a Republican, on federal corruption charges, uncovered how he had hid his member item contributions to unions that participated in his pension investment company.
