Former N.Y. State Assemblyman, Albany House Speaker and representative of the Lower East Side of Manhattan Sheldon Silver is still convicted!
Sheldon Silver is still convicted after being found guilty two weeks ago for his reprehensible and corrupt misuse and abuse of an elected political position to enrich himself with 4 million dollars worth of referral fee kickbacks through steering taxpayer funding through close friends in real estate firms from his district and a doctor pal he hooked up to his favored crony law firms.
Sheldon Silver went from his initial 12 year sentence which was generously dropped last year in an appeal citing the U.S. Supreme Court’s McDonnell Decision that made political bribery legal to the gloriously deserving 130 year sentence that was dropped on the career establishment Democrat hack.
Sensing the potential debilitating effects, permanent shame and confirmed disgrace of being incarcerated, Shelly Shady now has mustered the audacity in appealing for the third time for an acquittal. Showing yet again his insatiable proclivity to waste taxpayer dollars after getting caught plundering it, for more hearings to avoid his fate of the end of his existence in a federal prison cell. And it doesn’t at all help that he is not going to be officially sentenced until the last day of September, giving him and his dutiful attorneys ample time to conjure some obscure precedence to get him off.
It ceases to amaze the determination of this prick, who has shown more effort and tenacity scheming and machinating for himself and his buddies and now refusing to accept the verdict for his confirmed crimes, avoiding accountability and mocking justice and his former constituency in the wretched process.
But at least he’s still convicted and still a pathetic cowardly worm.
