This guy never ceases to surprise. It's kind of scary that a character like this not only is able to be an elected official in the Bronx, but even has strong-armed his way to a leadership position in the State Senate. What will unbridled ego, greed, and deceit do when combined with power? God only knows. In the words of anonymous Bronx politico quoted in the Village Voice, "This is so fucking bad."
