  • Democrats fail to oust NY Senate's GOP leader after arrest

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The Republican leader of the state Senate survived a largely symbolic effort by Democratic lawmakers to oust him from his position Wednesday following his arrest on federal corruption charges.

    Democratic lawmakers walked out of the Senate in protest after Republicans refused to allow a vote on their motion to remove Dean Skelos as Senate majority leader.

    Skelos, of Long Island, faces charges he traded his influence for more than $200,000 in payments from a real estate firm and an environmental technology business to his son, Adam, who is also charged in the case. Skelos and his son say they are innocent.

    "I don't think there was any point in participating in this charade," Sen. Michael Gianaris, D-Queens, told reporters after he left the Senate chambers. "Let's have a vote. Let the people of New York know where you stand."
