With the news that Councilmember Ruben Wills has been charged with twelve counts of criminal misconduct, the “drip drip” of political corruption continues unfortunately to flow in New York.
We are pleased to learn that Councilmember Ruben Wills has been stripped immediately of his chairmanship. He should also be denied his stipend as a signal to New Yorkers that the City Council will not tolerate any unethical or illegal behavior by its members.
No matter how inventive corrupt politicians are in trying to abscond with public funds, they never seem to learn from the many who have been caught previously with their hands in the public till. When will they learn that corruption never pays.
