The former boss of Democrat controlled Albany, Sheldon Silver, has now died at the age of 77.

As The New York Post reports:

Silver died in prison while serving out a six-and-a-half-year sentence — most recently at a federal medical center in Middlesex, Massachusetts — after he was convicted in 2018 for accepting nearly $4 million in bribes, his former chief of staff Judy Rapfogul confirmed to The Post.

The Manhattan native had a history of chronic kidney disease and cancer and during his sentencing, petitioned the judge overseeing his case to let him complete his sentence at home.

“Your honor, I do not want to die in prison,” Silver wrote in a letter to Judge Valerie Caproni at the time.

Caproni denied the request.

No official cause of death for Silver has yet been released.

No one wants to die in prison. That is why I do not accept bribes or break the law. He got what he deserved!
