NY Senate Back at Work
This has been one of the silliest
things in politics this year. They
wasted two months and millions
of dollars on a petty ego fight. NY
voters should vote against all of them
Senate leaders, sounding by turns apologetic, fatigued and self-congratulatory, vowed to quickly take up the scores of bills they had neglected during the leadership struggle.
The stalemate had prompted anger from voters and local officials, and denunciation from newspapers across the state.
“To all 19.5 million people in the state of New York, we apologize,” Senator John L. Sampson, a Brooklyn Democrat, said at a news conference. “Sometimes you have a dysfunctional family, dysfunctional family members, but at the end of the day, we understand that we are all one family and we are all home now. Home to stay.”
