I guess this story about really high prices was supposed to be surprising. You wonder why the only growth industry in upstate NY is moving companies. As we discussed here, Andy’s friends run the utilities. The Emperor thinks electricity can bring in more money and is taking steps to raise the prices more. story here
The Cuomo campaign is ignoring questions about $250,000 donations during the emperor’s last crowning. story here I am sure it will just go away, or the reporters will get new jobs, or their bosses will get great state jobs.

The NY Democrat convention may look like coronation from the outside with 95% of Democrats selecting Emperor Andy but it could not have been fun for Cynthia Nixon.
Nixon was given a room to speak right next door to a Cuomo event. When the other events sound overwhelmed Nixon supporters a post reporter asked, “Can you get a fair hearing, if you can’t even get a mic”. Emperor Andy was using a sound system.
Nixon laughed about Cuomo’s heavy hand throughout the convention and said “it’s important to show up” and “It’s important that, at the Democratic convention, there is at least one actual Democrat running for governor.”
Emperor Andy wins the endorsement of the NY State Democrat convention with 95% of the weighted vote. That’s because in the Democrat party some are more equal than others. Geebus, that’s Sadam Hussein domination territory.

Emperor Andy is tiring of the shared power arrangement in the New York Senate and has been arranging candidates all over the state to ensure Democrat control of the Senate. Story Here
