The Jefferson and St. Lawrence County Democrats have emerged from the smoke filled back room and despite long time Democrat Walter Basmajian's support they have bagged Tim Currier as a candidate.
Addie Jenne Russell is the candidate, and the party of the people is clearing out everyone from a potential primary.
LATER ADD: It is Jefferson County Democratic Party Chair Sean Hennessey who is playing hard ball politics and favors limiting voter's choice. Hennessey, according to WWNY TV, refused to issue an out of party authorization for now Democrat Currier. Too bad, surprising Hennessey does not believe his party is the party of the people any longer.
