The largest employer in New York is SUNY. Your boss and our glorious leader will tolerate no dissent and no other employers. It would explain a lot about upstate NY’s economy.
According to the Times Union here, Frank Merola will decide by Friday, May 4th if he will seek the Republican nomination for Kathy Marchione’s Senate seat. Marchione was a vocal critic of the unSAFE act in NY. Frank Merola has already butted heads with Cuomo as Rensselaer County Clerk here and here.
One would think someone as powerful and such a shoe in for re-election would have lots of allies and friends tripping over his robes. However, even his bedfellows have reservations. Top liberal politicians are not willing to endorse Andy yet.
The forecasted ”blue wave” should be strongest in Emperor Andy’s NY. However, two Republicans are amongst the leaders in fundraising for the 2018 midterm congressional races. Zeldin and Faso are supposed to lose according to ’talking head’ punditry.
An article here details the top fundraisers.
Nixon says NYer’s don’t pay enough property taxes. She may not have designs on being a tyrant – but she is as luny as Emporer Andy.
Kind of like the weather section or sports. Reporting on corruption in New York politics is like writing it’s raining. Corruption is not news in New York politics it is the weather.
I did not read the article because it’s behind the Times paywall, but it’s raining here so I don’t imagine I missed much.
Politico declares a new center significantly left of the old center. In a recent article, Politico implies Republican’s like Claudia Tenney to radical for their new center. Tenney states facts like “most mass shooters are Democrats”, and scandal-plagued Democrats like Hillary Clinton should be investigated. The new center can’t have these points of history talked about in public much less in Congress members mind.
Not long ago, amidst all the rallies and protests, when the unSAFE act was passed in the middle of the night, three state legislators were outspoken critics of the Emperor Andy’s actions. Steve McLaughlin, Pete Lopez, and Kathy Marchione.
Steve McLaughlin was convinced to leave the Assembly for a county politics job, Pete Lopez decided to become a regional administrator for the EPA and now Kathy Marchione has now decided not to run for re-election to spend more time with her family.
No one to call Emperor Andy ‘Hitler’ seems to be left.
It would seem coincidence has given the emperor a few fewer critics.
The Emperor Andy does not want to appear like he is doing nothing while planning his next attack on the peasants of NY.
