Lawmakers in Albany are trying to get back to work on the state budget after last week's arrest of state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who was charged with four counts of corruption and accused of taking more than $4 million in kickbacks. This week on The Campbell Conversations, Grant Reeher speaks with WRVO's Capitol Correspondent Karen DeWitt. Here's some of what you can expect this Sunday at 6 p.m. on the program.

In this portion of the conversation, they talk about the prevalence of downstate lawmakers who have been charged with corruption, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's work as governor and his potential presidential aspriations.

You can hear the rest of this interview Sunday at 6 p.m. on WRVO.
