Longtime Fumo friend Rosanne Pauciello, Democratic leader of Ward 39A, was distressed and saddened by the news.

"I am devastated, I am devastated," she said in a phone interview about an hour after the verdict was issued. "The senator worked so hard… And Ruthie (Arnao) was an angel in my life," she said, recounting how Arnao stood at her sister's side when she was ill in 2001.

"They were wonderful, wonderful people, as far as I'm concerned, wonderful to me and all the people around me. … I can't believe a jury can go through all those counts in that limited amount of time."
