And while we instantly recognized Cuomo, we don't have an inkling as to the identities of the six men surrounding him. If it was a State of the State address, we have to imagine these were the most powerful men in Albany – after the governor, of course – in Albany at the time.
And it that is the case, we are sure there are some political-savvy New Yorkers out there who will recognize them instantly and help us do a little research into their history and political career.
And with the latest news this week that yet another Albany power broker, this time State Senator Dean Skelos, has been indicted for using his office to funnel money to his allegedly unemployable son in exchange for political favors, we're sure that whatever digging we end up doing will not only uncover some heretofore forgotten political careers, but a number of transgression as well!
