New York State Senator Charles Fuschillo resigned effective midnight Tuesday.  In a surprise statement posted to his web site, the 7-term Republican from Merrick says he will become CEO of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.  Fuschillo's departure leaves both the state senate and Long Island in a precarious situation.
