U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara isn't concerned about the appeals of convicted state politicians Dean Skelos and Sheldon Silver.


Yesterday, Bharara was at the College of Saint Rose in Albany as part of an ethics panel on bribery and accessibility. Bharara discussed recent charges against nine high profile individuals in an alleged bid rigging scheme for state contracts but focused on Skelos and Silver.

Bharara said he's confident the recent Supreme Court decision that overturned the corruption conviction of Virginia's former Governor Bob McDonnell won't aid the appeals of Skelos and Silver.
