The ghost of Joe Vas

Several members of the State Assembly enjoyed a laugh yesterday at the expense of their colleague, Joseph Vas, who was indicted last week on state corruption charges. Vas skipped Monday's Assembly session, but at one point during a vote a green light appeared next to his name – either an inadvertent mistake by a staffer or a deliberate attempt at humor by another legislator. Either way, a large group of legislators laughed at the notion of Vas' faux affirmative vote, and then moved on.
