Do You Really Want Silver To Resign?
Dear New Yorker,
Our petition calling on New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver to resign has been a grand slam.
Many media outlets, activists and citizens have either signed it or shared it (or both) and helped us make the point that we will not accept using tax-payer funded payouts to the tune of $100,000 to cover up sexual abuse allegations in the NY State Assembly!
We are taking a stand and we are not letting up. We need to get our petition out to thousands more New Yorkers who may not be aware of these completely unethical and possibly illegal actions.
Sheldon Silver must not be allowed to remain Speaker of the NY Assembly! He isbeing investigated by a Special Prosecutor for covering up a hush-money payout of more than $100,000 of taxpayer money to quash sexual abuse allegations against Democrat Assemblyman Vito Lopez. Silver then claimed the payout was “legal and ethical.”
