New York Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin resigned Tuesday after been charged and arraigned in an alleged federal bribery conspiracy earlier in the day. Benjamin and Gov. Kathy Hochul were slated to run for re-election this year, and Benjamin will appear on the June primary ballot. "It also opens up the lanes for some of the primary challengers that are going to be pushing on the ethics issue really hard now," says Professor Grant Reeher. "This is just smacks of old Albany and Albany at its worst." Read more in the WIVB article, "What’s next for Brian Benjamin? Analysts say he could still win after resignation."
