Now, we are supposed to feel sympathy for a person because of his illness?
But, the only feeling I have is disgust.
Disgust that this corrupt criminal don is getting off the seat from which he wielded so much of his corrupt power and did so much evil to so many people only after 34 years of reigning his corrupt power and only when he is no longer physically and mentally capable to continue to drag his feet to the Capitol, no matter how many people in support personnel he has.
Nobody should "serve" 17 FREAKING TERMS in the legislature, writing laws for relatives, friends and "friendly businesses", appointing his own lawyers as judges, renting his offices from lawyers who then had the reign of court because - who can challenge a Senator's landlord, really? For any reason.
I am talking about you, corrupt attorney Richard Harlem, of Oneonta, New York, who have been renting a building for "district office" to the no-less corrupt Senator Seward - for decades!
What is Harlem going to do now that his "benefactor" is resigning from power?
Get another criminal don to serve?
And, once again, I will develop sympathy to public servants resigning from "service" only if they:
- truly serve, in full compliance with their constitutional oath of office, and
- not consider their "public service" post as a title of nobility, and entitlement, and a family business, and
- when they have TERM LIMITS, and are not "forced" to "not run for re-election" because they can no longer physically and/or mentally capable to do so.
