This panel will address corruption at the state-level of government with a focus on New York. The two highest-ranking members of the New York state legislature (a Democrat and a Republican) were convicted of corruption this winter.

Panelists: Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause New York; former Assemblyman Richard Brodsky. Co-sponsors: ACS, HLS Democrats, HLS Republicans.
