Lock up the entire clan. Work your way up to my exalted leader GUV CUM-O.

The family of State Senator Dean G. Skelos, who was arrested on federal corruption charges in May with his son Adam, has some new legal troubles, though of a different order of magnitude.​
Adam B. Skelos's wife, Ann Marie Skelos, was arrested on Wednesday night outside the couple's home in Rockville Centre, on Long Island, after an argument she had with her nephew, according to court papers and a report filed by the Police Department.
Ms. Skelos, 33, a lawyer, was charged with criminal mischief and attempted criminal mischief - both misdemeanors - for removing her nephew's glasses from his face and breaking them during the argument, according to the papers.
At some point during the argument, the nephew's grandmother went to a neighbor's home and banged on the door, asking that the police be called.

When the officers arrived, Ms. Skelos's nephew, David Michael Hassett, told them that he had first tried to call the police, according to a statement he gave to the authorities, which was filed with the charges against Ms. Skelos. He said that his aunt had tried to snatch his phone, then "took my glasses from my face and broke it in half," according to the statement.

Mr. Hassett, whose age is not given in the report, told the officers, "I do not want my aunt, Ann Marie Skelos, arrested." Nonetheless, Ms. Skelos was arrested; her lawyer, Dennis M. Lemke, said the officers were bound to do so by a Nassau County policy in domestic cases.
"As supportive as she has been of the Skeloses' ordeal, her husband, Adam, has been very supportive of her during this trying time," Mr. Lemke said.
She was arraigned in Nassau District Court and released on her own recognizance.
The federal corruption charges against Senator Skelos, a Republican who stepped down as the majority leader, accuse him of taking official actions to benefit AbTech Industries, an Arizona environmental company, and Glenwood Management, a New York developer that had financial ties to AbTech. Senator Skelos agreed to do so, according to the complaint, as long as the companies paid his son.
An expanded indictment against the two men filed last monthadded charges of soliciting bribes from a malpractice insurance company that had lobbied the state in return for favorable legislation. The indictment accuses the younger Mr. Skelos of threatening to "smash in" his boss's head. He also told the supervisor, according to the prosecutors, that he would never amount to anything, and that people like him could not even shine Adam Skelos's shoes.
The senator and his son have pleaded not guilty, and are expected to go to trial in November.

I had hoped she was tied to her father in laws and hubby's corruption. Class act though.
Just another reminder of how disgusting the Republican party in our state is.
Remember all those RINOs that signed a letter of support for Skelos?
How they backed him?
And then, backed his hand chosen successor, Flanagan?

Why would you back a crook's choice to replace him?
I can only think it's because you have no problem with corruption or you're a crook yourself.

I can't wait to hear from the RINOs come next election.

On a happier note I hope his entire family loses it all and everyone of the crooks rots in prison.

Doubt it. Word is among my politically connected friends that Cuomo is actually behind all this - taking 2/3 of the 'men in the room' out leaves him with more power, not less, and takes the heat off his own misdeeds.
What makes you think this won't make the 2/3 flip on cuomo?

If you know this... Then I'm sure Skelos and silver know this as well.

The running theory (conjecture of course) is that Cuomo is in cahoots with the U.S. Attorney's office and thus would be insulated from their ratting.
Insulated from leaks to the media too?

Seems a Hail Mary would be to leak to the media, force the da to allow testify against cuomo in court or leak the da is a rotten pos too.

Scorched earth policy.

Unless funds are being diverted for the hush hush to silver and Skelos.
