May 30, 2013- The NY Post is reporting, “A former state assemblywoman and close ally of Speaker Sheldon Silver has quietly left her cushy job at the state Education Department for an even higher-paying one in state Family Court. Janele Hyer-Spencer, a motorcycle-riding former beauty queen, left her post as a legislative liaison for the Education Department on Jan. 29. Hyer-Spencer, a Democrat, was hired in September 2011 — after voters had booted her from her Assembly seat. But insiders in Albany have been scratching their heads over her elevation from one state government job to another. The 48-year-old lawyer never worked in the education field before taking the state post. Although most of Hyer-Spencer’s responsibilities involved lobbying Congress, the tall, leggy blonde was based in Albany.”
