From True News from ChangeNYC.org:
When Councilman Miguel Martinez resigned abruptly yesterday in the face of federal charges expected to be announced this week, a whole lot of Martinez’s colleagues at City Hall suddenly got very nervous.
After all, Martinez, who is the first elected official to go down for his role in the long-simmering slush fund scandal, is reportedly going to be indicted for activities that appear to be almost standard practice among his fellow councilmembers. And to make things worse for his comrades-in-crime, Martinez appears ready to enter a quick guilty plea, which generally means that he’s ready to sing like a canary in exchange for a lighter sentence.
You gotta read the entire thing. It's good.
