In a couple weeks I will be a “lobbyist”…that is crazy! Prior to the Sheldon Silver Trial, Sheldon Silver personally blocked my bill…or so the New York Post said. Lawsuit reform was never anything I saw in my future.
One of the most frustrating things about the political culture in Albany are those that accept the status quo. We all know the legal system in America can be severely broken at times… we all know it’s messed up. I don’t understand why more people don’t say…this is unacceptable. This is wrong pure and simple and should not be allowed under any circumstances.
I remember when I explained to Liz from Capital Tonight that the man who sued me was a lawyer.
“Well, that’s your misfortune”, she said. Wrong place at the wrong time, your bad.
But it really shouldn’t be. it should’t be tolerated at all. A lawyer (not paying for representation) suing a complete stranger? It is our government’s JOB to make sure things like this don’t even happen in the first place.
This is what I am going up against folks. Wish me luck.
