A U.S. attorney was in Albany Monday talking about ethics.

This comes after the convictions of two leaders in the State Senate and Assembly.

Preet Bharara says cities and villages should use their positions to ask for ethical reform from city and state leaders.

"The point is not just to punish a politician who has broken the law, although that is necessary too, but to help improve a political system that has broken down," Bharara said.

Both the Republican led Senate and Democratic Assembly have yet to stand firm in support or against banning outside income, but agree that trust needs to be restored in Albany.
