Senate Republicans on Monday night reached a “consensus” that Majority Leader Dean Skelos should stay in his leadership post despite the corruption charges he faces.

Not everyone is on board: At least four Republicans — Sens. Robert Ortt, George Amedore, Rich Funke and John Bonacic — say Skelos should step aside as leader in some form.

Bonacic on Tuesday stuck by what Sen. Ken LaValle last night referred to as a “consensus” in the chamber, even though it appears that may not hold.

“He’s asked the conference to at least let him proceed to do the work of the people in the next seven weeks, because he feels he can get it done for the people,” Bonacic, a Hudson Valley lawmaker, said. “The question remains does this cloud of a pending indictment, will that hamper the conference from doing the work of the people and that’s a fluid question.”

Senate Republicans throughout the day on Tuesday insisted they wanted to move forward with the rest of the legislative session, even with Skelos and his legal baggage hanging over the Capitol.

Nevertheless, Bonacic said he does expect Skelos to step aside should the issue become a consuming one for the chamber and the GOP conference.

“If our conference is being hurt because of this cloud, I think he’ll step aside, because he’s that honorable,” he said. “It remains to be seen.”

Another Republican, Sen. Betty Little of Queensbury in the state’s North Country, said Skelos is trying to remain leader while not being a distraction.

“There are a lot of things we put off in the budget, now there’s so much local legislation senators are working on all year long that we need to,” she said.

Skelos was defiant this afternoon when speaking with reporters, insisting he had the support of both his constituents in Nassau County as well the members of the GOP conference as he plans to “aggressively” fight the charges he took official actions in order to benefit the company that employs his son, Adam, who is listed as a co-defendant.

Skelos also lashed out at the Republicans who have called on him to step down as leader saying, “Sometimes, Republicans have nothing to do but complain because they can’t do anything else.”

Senate Republicans, too, sought to turn the page by holding a series of previously planned committee hearings and a legislative session that honored Albania’s role in aiding Jews during the Holocaust.

Even with dissent in their ranks, Senate Finance Committee Chairman John DeFrancisco played down the growing concern that Skelos could remain leader.

“The most important thing about a conference is try to get a consensus and those who are in favor of something, that’s great,” the Syracuse Republican said. “If you’re against, you’re still part of the consensus and you’re still part of the time.”

As for whether Skelos could remain an effective leader, DeFrancisco spoke about the immediate future and the remainder of the legislative session, which runs through June 17.

“Why don’t we watch what happens between now and the end of the session,” he said, “and I think people will be very pleased with how government will be operating during that period of time.”
