Silver’s Agreement

When Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver spoke to reporters this morning about his relationship with the governor, he seemed to go out of his way not to exacerbate things.

According to a transcript of his Q&A:

Q. Spitzer obviously thinks you broke an agreement. How does that affect things going forward?

“I am not here to give you a history lesson and to rewrite history. So it’s important to move forward. ‘He said, she said’ doesn’t really work and it doesn’t really accomplish anything in government. What’s important is to move forward.”
