State Sen. Rob Ortt
ALBANY — State Sen. Rob Ortt called Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver's arrest "troubling" this afternoon in a release sent to the media.

Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, said the criminal charges against the leader of the Assembly should play out in court, while his leadership role in the Assembly is a matter for Assembly Democrats to decide.

Ortt's statement follows below in its entirety:
Today's news of Assembly Speaker Silver's arrest is troubling for the state of New York.

It reinforces my beliefs that strict accountability and transparency be enforced when it comes to those entrusted with the public's confidence. The criminal charges must play out in the courts and the leadership discussion is a matter for the Speaker and his Assembly Democrats. But we must not let this distract us from the work we must carry out as elected officials, especially as we enter budget negotiations with so much on the line for Western New Yorkers.
