Times Union: Aide To Senate Minority Punished
"People familiar with the accusation say Noel sought transcripts from the University of Buffalo, using Pierre's Social Security number and signature without his authorization."
Excuse me, but isn't this a crime? And the aide is merely "punished" and not fired? What behavior for political appointees in the New York Democratic Party merits a termination for cause? Raping an Assembly minority staffer and getting placed in the state's sex-offender registry? Oh, nevermind. That already happened to Speaker Silver's former counsel.
