Former state Sen. Nick Spano, on his way into court to plead guilty to federal tax charges, had this to say:
Personally, I just want to be very honest and straight-forward about what has happened. Today I acknowledge that I did not pay all the taxes that I should’ve paid. I’m sorry for that.
Spano’s fall, Friday’s “accommodation” in contraceptive coverage mandates by the Obama administration for religious organizations, accusations of a hate crime in Rockland and the struggles of aging in place in Westchester are just some of the topics to be addressed in this weekend’s Opinion section of The Journal News and LoHud.com.
