Meeting Yes, Progress No

Sheldon Silver met earlier today with Eliot Spitzer in the capitol to discuss the comptroller situation, according to Silver’s spokesman, Skip Carrier.

The result: Spitzer still wants anybody but a legislator elected to the position. Silver still wants a legislator.

According to Carrier, the meeting was “cordial” but “nothing has changed.”
