Yes the "FAT LADY" has sang her song and it looks like The Co-Star of "Sex in The Assembly" is in the clear and Vito is being hung to dry.

What will Vito do next ?

Will he Fight or Quit ?

Will he call the "FEDS" and say "Lets make a Deal" and do a "TELL ALL"
of how Albany works and all the "DEALS"that he cut over the "YEARS" and name names.

We cried foul last year when Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver secretly shoveled $103,000 in taxpayer money to two women who had accused Assemblyman Vito Lopez of sexual harassment.
We did the same in 2006 when Shelly used nearly $500,000 in public moolah to settle sexual-harassment charges against his own chief counsel.
But now the top ethical minds in the state have weighed in. It turns out that we just didn’t understand Albany rules — where sex crimes are bad, but not the use of taxpayer dollars to make them disappear.
On Wednesday, the Joint Commission on Public Ethics presented charges against Mr. Harassment (Lopez) but cleared his enabler, Mr. Payoff (Silver).
