The first full week of the 2018 legislative session is behind us, and it was full of scandal. First, Assemblywoman Pamela Harris was faced with an indictment, after she allegedly stole money from a non-profit she ran before she was elected to the Assembly. And just days later, Senate IDC Leader Jeff Klein was accused of sexual misconduct by a former staffer. The alleged incident is said to have happened in March 2015. And, the president is in hot water for another vulgar comment. The members of the Reporter Roundtable break down the week in state and national politics: Jon Campbell of USA Today Networks, Casey Seiler from the Albany Times Union, and Michael Gormley from Newsday join Nick Reisman.
