The New York Post is not amused by the fact that Vito Lopez’s gift to New York — Brooklyn Judge Carl Landicino — will still be on the bench long after Lopez is gone. That’s assuming, of course, that Lopez goes anywhere.
The Post is being unduly harsh on Judge Landicino. He hasn’t been accused of being corrupt or even unqualified. Quite to the contrary, it’s clear that Landicino is quite an expert on New York’s Byzantine election laws. That’s saying something, folks. Unfortunately, he learned the dark arts at the knee of the Sith Lord Lopez. Perhaps now that he’s on the bench, he’ll see the light. One can only hope.
