Former Assemblywoman Diedre Scozzafava will be taking a six figure income into her final years in the state system...but the $100,000 post in the Department of State is only slightly higher than what she was making in the Assembly. In 2009, Scozzafava made roughly $98K but that dropped in 2010 after the former Gouverneur mayor started endorsing Democrats following her unsuccessful 2009 bid for Congress.
She still would be better off being an MTA cop for her final years...or maybe one of those high overtime jobs handing out Xanax at a state psychiatric center.
But she did make lemonaid out of the lemons of her crash and burn campaign for Congress.
