No New Nepotism

There is an article worth reading about Sweeney's fund raising "commission" payments to his wife up at Muckracker. Although there could be any number of reasons that Sweeney's files are under investigation, I'm not sure I agree with the article's point that it's not related to the Abramoff scandal. Greenberg Traurig has been funding Sweeney since April of 2001, shortly after his visit to Miami to shut down the vote recount. At any rate, Gillibrand's short and sweet Ethics IOU is a stark contrast to the Sweeney status quo. She won't have family members on payroll.
