On Happy Night, Silver Backs Hevesi

As the early, favorable returns come in, Sheldon Silver is sticking with Alan Hevesi.

Referring to the investigation by the Albany District Attorney into Hevesi’s misuse of public driver for personal use, Silver said, “Hevesi will have the opportunity to be heard in that proceeding, and I think the proceeding will ultimately govern what ultimately happens to Alan Hevesi.”

“I’ve seen him do a tremendous job. I just can’t ignore that service.”
