The head of the NY Commission on Public Integrity is resigning and Michael Cherkasky broke the shocking news that the ethics panel doesn't do a very good job, because it's underfunded. Plus it's focused on the executive branch, while the legislative branch (hello, Shelly; hello, Pedro) has "virtually non-existent oversight." He says, "Starting with meaningful disclosure and conflict of interest rules, and closing with independent oversight, New York State needs a complete reform of Legislative ethics oversight." Cherasky, who was appointed by Paterson last year and even found the governor in the wrong over the World Series tickets, is leaving the job because his private risk management business is growing.
