Governor Paterson on SNL

[If you are looking for a Governor Paterson appearance on SNL for October 16th, I think you are confused. I believe that this past Saturday they showed a rerun of the Governor Paterson impersonator only, doing something about the Kristin Gillibrand Senate race. You can find it at the SNL website. -KW] A video link […]

Warning! Big danger for public education (NY State universities)

KW: Wow! This is a huge problem. A rich person – a hedge fund manager of all things – wants use a donation as a kind of political bribe, to change the NY State University system to his liking. Egads! More comments after story. This is a huge problem which progressives, leftists, and people who […]

Huffington Post helps create race-issue smokescreen

KW: This is a slightly modified version of a letter I sent to the Huffington Post.  You can see the Huffington Post article, “Sen. Kevin Parker’s Rant On Race Video”, with their ridiculous and off-topic poll: here. Re: Your article and poll about Kevin Parker Dear Huffington Post, I am surprised and upset that you […]

Early polls for 2010 NY Governor and Attorney General races

These stats are great research for third parties to see who the competition might be for statewide office, and what voters are thinking about their NY government. There is a link to a detailed Siena poll with a long list of candidates. At the bottom of this post, I listed all the names-only of the […]

Tensions between Gov Paterson and AG Cuomo over Jay Jacobs pick

(excerpt from) NY Daily News Attorney General Cuomo steaming over Gov. Paterson’s state Dem pick by Elizabeth Benjamin Tensions between Gov. Paterson and Attorney General Andrew Cuomo have reached frosty new levels with the recent pick of a state Democratic boss.

Is Nassau Dem Boss headed for statewide?

KW: Newsday reports that NY Governor David Paterson has tapped Jay Jacobs, Nassau County Democratic Chairman, to be the Chair of the State Democratic Committee. The vote would happen in the fall. I find this humorous and resonant. Governor Paterson has a history of being friends with Republicans such as Joe Bruno, and Governor Paterson […]

NY statewide poll: Governor approval, Legislature approval and Term Limits

Thanks to Ballot Acces News for the story. WGRZ TV Term Limits: What You Think, Governor Reacts Frustrated, fuming and fed up.

New NY State Lt. Governor: Richard Ravitch?

KW: I heard that part of the negotiations in the NY State Senate coup involved having a “Lieutenant Governor” appointed, so that the line of succession did not go immediately into the Senate chamber. Now, it appears that Governor Paterson has appointed a Lt. Governor. Though, I do not understand if the appointment is automatic, […]

NY State Senate update: Tuesday afternoon, June 30th

A Republican Senator strolled through the chamber, and the Democrats said that gave them a majority and the right to hold a session. The Republican says that he was […]

NY State Senate: Sunday, June 28th update

For those of you keeping track: Since Governor Paterson (D) is demanding that the NY State Senators “do their job”, each conference – the Democrats and the Republicans – gaveled in and gaveled out separately, both under 3 minutes. Working on a Sunday. Pretty strange… Also, the Democrats are running ads trying to pressure Republicans to […]

Will the NY State Senate meet on Saturday and Sunday?

KW: I am not guessing that they will. And, no one is blogging about the NY State Senate coup at the Capitol Confidential or Daily News so far this morning (It’s 7am). But, Newsday says the Governor called them into session for Saturday, and that he might call them for Sunday. But, they might not […]

NY State Senate: Party switching and accountability

Party Switching and Accountability The Democrats seem to be so stubborn on the coup. Yes, they are avoiding convening as a full body and that seems assertive. But, here and there Democratic leaders keep giving up arguing points and retreating from battles where they could and should push forward. Some of it is perverse strategy, […]
