Koch: Throw 'Bum' Silver Out, GOP is Party of Reform

Former Mayor Ed Koch doesn't hold back with NBC's Melissa Russo.

"What should voters do about Sheldon Silver," she asked. "Throw the bum out," Koch replied. He and Silver are both Democrats from Manhattan, but they were never particularly close.

Koch goes on to say that Republicans can "rightfully" claim to be the party of reform, since more of them signed Koch's reform pledge.
