Albany's Swift Boat Victims

Richard Brodsky is concerned about the legislature’s image.

Days after he wrote an Op-Ed in the Times regional sections entitled “The Legislature You Don’t Know,” he went on Fred Dicker’s radio show this morning to lament the way the Assembly is getting kicked around in public.

“He’s entitled to be a tough guy; he is a tough guy,” he said of Eliot Spitzer.

But he lamented the fact that the state legislature had, in his words, been “swift boated.”

“Who swift boated you guys?” Dicker asked him.

“Editorial page writers, radio show hosts, outside groups,” Brodksy answered.
