On 20 July, NBC New York reported that the former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, 76, was sentenced for bribery and extortion. He was once one of New York’s most powerful politicians in his 21 years as Assembly speaker. He was convicted in a scheme that involved favours and business traded between 2 real estate developers and a law firm. Silver supported legislation that benefited the developers. The developers then referred certain tax business to a law firm that paid Silver fees.
