SUCCESS????? That mag is right on top of things

Success Magazine, a business publication based out of Clifton Park, NY, has a cover profile of recently indicted former Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno on the cover of its January issue.
Calling Bruno its “executive of the month,” the magazine features a Q&A about Bruno’s upbringing, his experiences as a businessman and elected officials, and his thoughts on entrepreneurship.
The issue came out before Bruno’s Jan. 23, indictment on corruption charges. Bruno has vociferously and colorfully denied any wrongdoing.
This isn’t the first time Success has inadvertently published a cover story of an elected official in times of political woe.
In November 2006, Success featured a cover story and profile of former Congressman John Sweeney, a day after he was defeated by Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand. A week before the November 7, 2006 election, a state police domestic violence report was leaked, documenting an incident that occurred between Sweeney and his wife.
