Bruno Ready for His New Role, Mum on Spitzer Consequences

Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno just wrapped up a press conference in the Capitol, where he said, “This is a distraction of proportions we have never experienced.”

He also reminded the 17 television cameras and dozens of reporters that “the constitution of New York State indicates the majority leader of the Senate assumes all the responsibilities and the duties of the lieutenant governor.”

When asked if Spitzer should go to jail, Bruno said, “I’m going to stay focused on what we have to do this afternoon.” (Working on the state budget.)

Asked about the resignation announcement, which is about to happen, he said, “No one has contacted me officially.”
