Sweeney to report to jail

Full story: WNYT Albany

Former Rep. John Sweeney hasn't been sentenced yet, but he's headed to jail. NewsChannel 13 has learned that in a highly unusual maneuver, Sweeney is expected to report directly to the Saratoga County Jail Wednesday evening and forego his formal sentencing for drunken driving.

I wish the media would stop following the misfortunes of John Sweeney. I have met him and was his taxi driver for some time. I will concede he is belligerent when drunk but he has said on countless occasions how bad he feels that the press does this to his family. Sweeney is a very nice guy who really cares about his family. In the media quest for ratings, I wish the media would find something more newsworthy than a man deeply in the throws of alcoholism. He really doesn't care about what happens to him but the media has made the lives of his children quite something else.

I think Sweeneny would be the perfect running mate for Paladino. They both have the same conservative values and are / were supportted by The COnservative Party of New York.

The press doesn't do this to his family, he does. He didn't much care what it did to his family when he was driving drunk with a young woman's face in his lap, did he?

Bold boy- Im in AA with john sweeney who has just completed one year of sobriety.He is more then capable of behaving himself after these next 20 days. Ive known plenty of people who have had 3 or 4 even 5 DWIs and not served jail time he has been treated unfairly because of who he was. It is about time some of you get over your political differences and realize he should be treated like anyone else.

When you are in political office you are held to a higher standard you take a sworn oath to serve the people of NY abide by the rules/laws, your everyday Joe does not, that is why he is treated different then you or I.

What are u some kind of an idiot? This is the same evil creep that caused a ROIT in Washington DC when he enambled bush crimes to proceed. This creep is the same drunkard lucifer that can't control his family, he's bully of a son is as arrogant and troublemaker as he is, and you were what, he's taxi driver! C'mon give us a break. Next time a felon needs a ride in your cab, do us all a favor an quickly put up the noise barrier.

The press does not do this, Sweeney does it to his own damn family!! The press just reports what an embarrassment he makes of himself and the people close to him.

John, Joe...who cares? I think they meant "he's not your everyday (average) Joe". However, the woman caught on his lap, while he was driving, did say he was her "John". Does that count? It's all so confusing. Besides, Mr. John Sweeney only reported to to jail early because he didn't want to miss the "Happy Hour".

Speak of the devil. That was none other than the grand-daughter of the dishonorable Joe Bruno. The one who was found hooking in NYC.

Gee you sure waste a lot of time on here. Shouldn't you be giving the wrong meds to patients and/or changing bed pans? Get back to work, slacker.
