He can’t take it anymore! Squadron resigns from state Senate in fiery tirade against Albany'

A Brooklyn Heights state senator attacked the institution he served on Wednesday when he unexpectedly resigned his post, calling New York state government a den of corruption that he vows to clean up thanks to his new job at an organization that will work to influence state politics.

Everytime I see Albany appear in an article I think it's going to be a story about California. Fortunately in this article the appearance of Albany was quickly followed by Brooklyn Heights, that cleared that up.

It sounds like he wasn't enjoying his job. I looked him up and he's teaming up with Jeffrey Sachs for that new organization, along with some fashion guy who lives in LA.

I also learned that Bernie Madoff stole his inheritance.

And here I thought an entire "squadron" (plural) of people had resigned. :D

Yeah, makes me wonder what kind of mood the Ellis Island name giver was in the day Squadron's ancestors passed through.

And I wonder what their original German Yiddish names had been. Silver or Gold, stine or burg.
