“Assemblyman Eric Stevenson Arrested for Alleged Corruption”

Politicker: “Moments ago, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s office announced yet another New York State elected official, Bronx Assemblyman Eric Stevenson, has been arrested and accused of taking bribes. Earlier this week, New York’s political world was rocked when corruption charges were leveled against State Senator Malcolm Smith and Councilman Dan Halloran. Mr. Stevenson’s charges will be formally unsealed at noon today. ‘Stevenson is accused of taking bribes in exchange for official acts, which included drafting, proposing, and agreeing to enact legislation that would benefit the co-defendants’ businesses,’ the release announcing the press conference declared.”

Is this what Frank Sinatra meant, in referring to New York, as “Hey Number One!”
