Senate Pres. Paiva Weed speaks out on Ruggerio, CicconeApril 3rd, 2012 at 5:14 pm by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes, On the Main Site
Here’s the entire new statement from Senate President M. Teresa Paiva Weed, just sent by her office:
I would like to say that I am pleased to see that Senator Ruggerio has accepted responsibility for his actions. No one is above the law and everyone – including elected officials – should be respectful of individuals in the law enforcement community, particularly when they are doing their jobs. Although there seems to be a difference of opinion on the details of that night, Senator Ciccone has expressed regret for his actions that evening as well.
