"Make AG an Election Watchdog"

After a whirlwind of arrests, Albany is brimming with anti-corruption  proposals. They include public financing of elections, beefed-up regulatory  measures and stricter rules for political parties. When the smoke clears, the  most important measure of success will be if and how the enforcement of election  and campaign finance laws are reformed.

Among the variety of suggestions, the best hope for meaningful reform is to  give the attorney general full jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute civil  violations and criminal conduct. The governor has the power to make  this happen.
