Daily News with a Rare Gem

Great editorial outta Jill Porter, writing for the paper that officially endorsed Mayor Street's corrupt regime in the mayoral election:

Baylson meant the 10-year-sentence to be a deterrent to other city officials who might be tempted to sell their offices.

But it also ought to be a stinging rebuke to everyone who has portrayed the city's pay-to-play culture as routine and harmless and the historical status quo.

Corey Kemp will have a long time behind bars to rethink the responsibilities he assumed when he took his job and the only people to whom he owed his allegiance: the city's taxpayers.

Right on.
