Weighing Hevesi's ethical dilemma

Newsday Editorial

"New York State voters reelected Comptroller Alan Hevesi, a Democrat, by a wide margin earlier this month. They did this knowing he was under investigation for ethics violations and that he most likely broke the law when he used a state employee to chauffeur his disabled wife.Does his reelection mean voters forgave him - by a 17-percentage-point margin? Does it mean that proceedings against him - the threat of criminal indictment and/or removal from office, which Gov.-elect Eliot Spitzer is likely to pursue - should be halted?"

This editorial writer is right on target......nobody ever said this was going to be here to read the whole editorial.........andy
