Sheldon Silver
NEW YORK -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement today that "justice was served" by the guilty verdict against former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

Silver, a Democrat, was found guilty today of all seven counts against him, including fraud, extortion and money laundering. He stood accused of accepting nearly $4 million in bribes and kickbacks.

Also a Democrat, Cuomo said, "Today, justice was served. Corruption was discovered, investigated, and prosecuted, and the jury has spoken. With the allegations proven, it is time for the Legislature to take seriously the need for reform. There will be zero tolerance for the violation of the public trust in New York."

Former state Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, a Republican, was on hand for the guilty verdict. Skelos is currently on trial for corruption, himself.
