State Senator Eric Adams on Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver: “Unless he has become the modern-day Napoleon, where he crowns himself, he’s only the speaker. He is not the leader or the king of New York state.” (Post)
Silver clarifies comments he made in the Daily News, appearing to suggest that Richard Ravitch take charge of budget negotiations: “Ultimately it’s the governor who should be negotiating the budget.
