Earth to Albany: You Suck (pt 2)

Daddy, I want to lobby, too! From the Times-Union:
ALBANY -- Kenneth Bruno, the son of state Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno, said Thursday he has left New York's top-grossing lobbying firm to start his own company. The younger Bruno said he expected to have some gold-chip clients. "This is an exciting opportunity and I'm looking forward to continuing to represent my clients effectively," he said.
Thank you, daddy, for my last name.
Bruno's father is the most powerful Republican in the state Legislature.
What good is it having a republican governor and senate if taxes and fees keep going up in massive giveaways to unions and lobbies?
The new firm will be called Albany Strategies, and Bruno said he expects to represent Cablevision, Magna Entertainment, Yonkers Raceway and the New York Ambulette Coalition, among others. Cablevision owns Madison Square Garden and Magna is one of North America's most powerful companies in the horse racing industry. "It's highly unusual for someone to break out on their own and have that kind of client list, so he must be providing some service his clients really like," Horner said.
I'm sure it's all legal. But why? Where's the outrage?
