CHEERIOS & HANDOUTS TO ILLEGALS: NORMAL DAY AT THE OFFICE FOR ASSEMBLY DEMS

          “The heroin epidemic is ravaging our communities, taxes continue to skyrocket and every time we turn around another legislator is being arrested on corruption, and yet Assembly leadership prioritizes giving taxpayer-funded college educations to illegal aliens and commemorating the anniversary of Cheerios.

DEMS CONTINUE TO PROTECT PENSIONS OF DIRTY POLITICIANS

DEMS CONTINUE TO PROTECT PENSIONS OF DIRTY POLITICIANS

Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Troy) today ripped Assembly leadership for stalling on ethics reform as session nears its end

          “The Democrat Majority is trying to escape this year’s session without passing any meaningful ethics reforms, but I will continue to expose their intentional negligence. How can anyone say this is not the most important legislative priority we have after two of New York’s most powerful players got a combined 17-year vacation in the slammer on federal corruption charges? Is the Assembly pulling strings to protect the pensions of their own corrupt members or are they simply refusing to listen to the cries for ethics reform across the state? Once again, Assembly Democrats had a chance to make a real difference today and restore faith in government and once again they miserably failed.”

Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer, Columbia and Washington counties. For more information,

PREET BATTING A THOUSAND

          “As a legislator, some of the most heartbreaking things I hear in my district are that we are all corrupt and the apathetic sense that things will never change. Cases like this reinforce those regrettable opinions. Regardless of a lawmaker’s party affiliation, the fact remains that Dean Skelos disgraced his office and used his power, influence and money for personal gain and now he is rightfully paying the price. I hope this represents a turning point in Albany, where lawmakers are held accountable and we can begin to regain the public’s confidence, which starts with pension forfeiture for corrupt lawmakers and term limits for legislative leaders.”

FROM A MEMBER OF THE BAR TO BEHIND BARS

          “I’m glad to see that the only backroom deals Sheldon Silver will be negotiating for the rest of his life will be trading a pair of clean socks for an extra dessert during meal time. Today should stand as a reminder that corruption will no longer be tolerated in Albany. Those living in the taxpayer-funded lap of luxury are not above the law, and New Yorkers are fed up with Albany’s deceit, corruption and abuse of power. Drain the swamp.”

ASSEMBLY DEMS VOTE DOWN INCREASED SEX OFFENDER RESTRICTIONS

          Following a press conference in Albany held by Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C,I-East Patchogue), Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Schaghticoke) today called for a floor vote on legislation to toughen restrictions on level one sex offenders. McLaughlin sponsors the initiative, which would increase the amount of time a level one sex offender would be required to remain on the sex offender registry by 10 years. The original statue was put in place twenty years ago, meaning many level one sex offenders will be coming off the registry in 2016 and may still pose a threat to society.

ASSEMBLY DEMS SIDE WITH ILLEGAL ALIENS OVER MIDDLE-CLASS FAMILIES

          Assembly Democrats today voted down legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Schaghticoke) that would have made college more affordable for middle-class New Yorkers.

Democrats also blocked an initiative to make Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) funding more accessible for prospective students, which McLaughlin also sponsors.

McLAUGHLIN: 'HEY PREET, I HOPE YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING'

          “Nothing that happened this week can be remotely classified as democracy. It is blatantly obvious that Albany will perpetuate its old ways of closed-door budget negotiations, disenfranchising millions of New Yorkers in exchange for absolute power and control.
