The New York State Senate Democrats who have villified Senator Pedro Espada are considering taking him back.
“Would he be welcome to return to the Democratic conference and conference with us? Yes,” said Sen. Diane Savino, D-Staten Island.
And this
Monserrate started waving around his cell phone, announcing to the conference that he had a text message from Savino asking him to negotiate a return to the conference by Espada as majority leader with her ally, Sen. Jeff Klein, as president pro tem.
Ok boys and girls you better think seriously about this. You may lose your polished halo and have to come off your moral high ground position because by your accounts this man is the Anti-Christ. Not that the Senate Democrats is the shining city of angels with two of it's members charged felony crimes.

Senator Aubertine sues the Assembly to pass bills that the Assembly even recognizes as bogus, because a Republican Senator grazed the chamber while the Democrats were inside.

So, what is Assemblywoman Addie Jenne Russell's take on being sued by Senator Aubertine?

Does Senator Aubertine really want to end this stalemate or just appear like he does? This move is seen a life preserver for a Congressional race because every Senator is getting tagged with sagging poll numbers.

Why does he just walk in and vote on non-controversial bills?

Where is someone like Senator Valesky, why did he not sue also?

The mayor blogs that Darrel is only carrying the water for this mess. Hmmm, would it not be a preference to be considered something other than a water boy for the New York City leadership?

The GOP ought to get their act together rather quickly, the honeymoon for the Great One is over. A Rasmussen tracking poll reports Obama's numbers have hit the lowest level yet with 33% say they strongly approve and 36% strongly disapprove of the way he is performing.

Assemblyman Will Barclay has stepped out of the race for the 23rd Congressional race which leaves only two heavy hitters in the race - Dede Scozzafava and Matt Doheny. The open process of selecting the candidate begins tonight.

Aubertines purpose is to pass an important bill for this area and you want to villify him. Typical.

It's an Article 78 proceeding, and it is the prescribed remedy to get a Gov't Agency or Body to abide by the Rules. Aggrieved parties do this EVERY DAY!

Aubertine has 'Standing'in the matter, AND has the cajones to pursue this. While YOU wring your hands over your little keyboard. How's that working out for you?

* Dede Scozzafava: Pro-guns, pro-choice, pro-gay marriage.

* Matt Doheny: lots of money in already ($500,000.00) and he appears to be liberal - hasn't lived in the district for years.

Of course Barclay got out - daddy and Jim Wright smelled another resounding defeat for him. Will seems like a nice guy, but he needs to grow a pair, step away from old worn out hacks like his dad and Jim Wrong. Naturally, IV, you know all about this Jim Wright ass-kissing business...you've been doing it for years. That's why he knifed Patty Richie in the back and supported you before the primary. All of you idiots, including Renzi, unwittingly conspired to Dumb Darrel elected and now he may well become our next Congressman. Thanks for the fine work you boneheads!

Anon 1. Do you really believe what you have written?

Darrel's purpose is Darrel!

Everything he has done since the McHugh announcement has been to make him look like he should be a congressman.

He and EVERY state senator is a joke.

All politicians are self-serving, no different than Addie.

Doheny - big campaign contributor? I post, you decide.

Dohney Contributions (total of 3)

Interesting find, isn't it?

Not that it matters, but the Huffington Post list for Doheny's contributions is incomplete. I know he definitely contributed to McHugh's campaign, for example. He also contributes generously to a lot of local causes and charities - everything from the hospital in Watertown to the pop warner football team in Alex Bay.

I posted other links above about Mr. Doheny's contributions and none appear to be for any local candidate, ever ... check out yourself.
