Will there ever be reform in Albany. No, of course not.
It's about power, control, patronage and of course getting reelected.
Republicans had run the Senate for 43 years and were quite used to having all of the above. Democrats chased the car and finally caught it, but not knowing what to do next.
As the Post's Fred Dicker writes today, the Dems were more overbearing than their predecessors and were attempting to grind the GOP into dust.
Well, they fought back and with the help of two democratic senators, turned the tables.
Yes, the pair of senators are shady guys, one under indictment for carving his woman's face with a wine glass, the other is a serial party switcher guilty of dubious pay to play scenarios.
The fact the Democrats assumed power with such a cast of characters says much. Another of their caucus was indicted recently as well.
The fact Republicans regained control using such dubious characters is ironic, but also troubling.
This may slow or derail some of the left wing agenda flourishing in Albany, but it ensures a bitter statewide effort next year for control of the Senate.
Oh, and as for our state senator, look for him to try for Congress.He knows his senate seat will be ground zero again for control of the state senate, and may not want that battle again.
