Governor Cuomo says he will work with whomever supports his agenda...And many think the Governor gave tacit support to the Independent Democratic Caucus, who took their five members and cut a power sharing deal with the GOP.
However, the shadow behind NYC Democratic Senators says the deal stinks...Rev. Al Sharpton, an MSNBC commentator, says the party sold out its minority base by cutting a deal with Senator Jeff Klein. Rev. Sharpton says the Caucus only has one black member.....that would be Senator Malcom Smith who joined the group this week.
