Shelly won't reveal his income

From the Daily News:

Former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is already taking the Fifth about disclosing his outside income.

In a financial disclosure statement made public late Thursday afternoon, Silver (D-Manhattan) declined to answer questions about his non-government jobs or outside salary in 2014, citing his looming corruption trial.

“Given pending proceedings in Federal Court it is inappropriate to answer this question,” Silver wrote. “However, this answer will be amended upon completion of the proceedings.”

When a voracious force of arrogant, intolerant extremists like Sheldon Silver (among too many to name), continue to dictate policy that is ordered for everyone else to obey, but not the accused, then cynicism slips quickly into social unrest, societal collapse and finally, anarchy itself.

Sadly, that's exactly the point that we've reached right now in our corrupt, broken and dysfunctional government---where depraved, would be dictators still think they are in control, when in fact they are completely out of control (while still holding public office, no less)!

When will the power be correctly returned, reclaimed and restored to the very people in society who've actually earned the right to dictate the direction of all public policy---the taxpayers' themselves? We need to take back our rogue government of seized control and willful defiance. If not now, then when?

He probably has so many "outside" sources of income that he wants to wait to see which ones the feds already know about - i.e., he doesn't want to disclose payments that Preet doesn't know about (yet). But it will all come out in the near future.

Maybe he has money stored in some vacant luxury apartments in manhattan and brooklyn.

Maybe if he reveals his income it might lead to some very dangerous sources. Shelly wants to stay alive in prison and enjoy his old age.
If he rats the wrong people out he might get whacked.
