Conviction on federal corruption charges isn’t stopping the disgraced former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver from purchasing the essentials. Local Lower East Sider Steve Hernandez spotted the crooked politician shopping inside Rite Aid yesterday afternoon, notably stocking up on four boxes of Raisin Bran (Kellogg’s, not Post). Waiting on line with the best of ’em.
Silver is headed to prison later this year after his conviction last November on honest services fraud, extortion, and money laundering. Sentencing is set for April 13, and he faces up to 130 years in prison.
Lots of jokes could be spawned with this one…
