"Thompson is a member of the Senate insurance committee but over the past year and a half he has rarely introduced bills pertaining to insurance or tort matters. The overwhelming majority of bills he proposed deal with strictly local matters or environmental concerns (he is chairman of the Environmental Conservation Committee). He has introduced 22 bills so far this year."  Buffalo News, Sunday, May 9, 2010

Coincidence or conflict of interest?  You decide.

Our corrupt and degenerate Legislature is hardly anything but one big conflict-of-interest generator. The fact that many members of our Assembly and Senate are members of law firms that benefit directly from legislation they pass -- or reject -- is well-documented. To paraphrase the late, great William F. Buckley, New York would be better governed by 100 names chosen at random from the Brooklyn telephone directory.
