Brass B@lls

Does this guy have brass ones or what?

Malcolm Smith, Senate Majority Leader In Wanting, has the audacity to stand up in front of lobbyist and tell them to buck up or no deals next year for their clients. You can say anything you want about Joe Bruno, but he did not even do things like this.

The arrogance of leaders in Albany like this is disgusting at best, and if people think for a minute this guy or his conference of Democratic Senators will clean up and reform Albany, they better think again. NOT A CHANCE!

His actions are illegal.

Here is a quote from a lobbyist at the event, read the rest here.
"He said we should get in early because then it doesn't cost as much. The longer you wait to get in, he said, the more it will cost you and if you don't get in at all, then it will be painful after November, after the Democrats win the majority," the lobbyist continued.
If Senator Aubertine wants to be viewed as independent and reform minded then he should denounce Smith and his actions.

Darrel would have to have an original thought! Andrew Mangione will denounce it so Darrel can claim he did it, or that he had no knowledge of it.

That seems to be his way of late.

If the Sen. Malcolm Smith story is correct and he stated things they way a lobbyist said they were and that Dicker reports, then Smith should not be confirmed or appointed or elected to the majority chair (assuming DEMS gain the majority seats).

Mr. Aubertine should do the research and see if they facts are correct and I agree, he must disavow them, publicly... and the sooner the better.

I wonder what DD's take is on this story?
