Dems Win the 63rd Seat.....GOP Withers

   For Republicans, it was a scheme that failed...Creating a 63rd Senate District in hopes of winning it and holding control of the Upper House.
   Today, Democrat Cecilia Tkacyzk used the last votes to be counted to win the 46th SD race over Republican George Amedore by 19 votes.
    That leaves the GOP with just 30 of 63 seats and the balance of power in the Democratic leaning (on the issues) IDC.
    Republicans in the Empire State are no longer able to do much of anything. The Governor is in pretty much complete control, with only the IDC providing a little bit of moderation around the edges.

"Voters Won Too"

Cecilia Tkaczyk’s victory today is shared by all the Voters in NYS that want their votes counted in every election. As for the soon to be Sen. Tkaczyk, congratulations are in order, because you didn't just win an election today you set an example of how a public official should conduct themselves; during a high stress struggle to gain a victory the voters of the 46th District awarded you on election day. We're proud of you and know you're going to do great things in the Senate of New York.

I spoke about this race for a few months with the Mayor, who kindly indulged my interest in it. I saw it as an important test case for a candidate to have votes counted that should be counted and for those voters to have their votes honored. The system worked for the candidate and the voters in the 46th District.

Its implications could be profound and Coalition government in NYS, even if it remains as is, will have a heavily Democratic and Progressive slant. Majority Leader Dean Skelos trying to appease Conservative Mike Long is forced to try to water down future Progressive legislation the Gov. Cuomo wants passed and that spells a bumpy ride for him.

Nineteen guys like Mikey swung that election. guys that register in multiple districts and who are not asked for ID at the voting booth.

I hope Cuomo gets another 49 billion in stimulus money this next term. Otherwise he gonna run out of other-peoples-money. He gonna need another tax cut that raises taxes.

It couldn't be that in a redrawn
46th District, that heavily favored any Republican candidate, that a Democrat won fair and square? It couldn't be that the people of NYS and a Majority of NRA membership (ignored by their leadership) want 'Gun Control' now? It couldn't be that the Liberals you accuse of being stupid are a lot smarter than you? It couldn't be that the Republican Party either changes or becomes irrelevant in NYS and the Nation? It couldn't be that guys who are rude SOB's on this blog, and say we bother them are nothing but jackasses and 'Political Fossils' unable to change or contribute any new ideas to the political discussions of our time?

At least it couldn't be to people like you.

Not good news for the North Country...Where is Darrell Aubertine when we need him? Maybe we will get lucky and Addie will win the next election for NYS Senator, and we will have some representation again with Patty Ritchey and her buddy Grover Norquist.

Remember, the Republican Majority treated the Democratic Minority like crap for years (I.E. Passing the budget in a meeting attended ONLY by the GOP, and then there's always having the TV cameras focused only on them).

Unfortunately for us, it's pay back time.

“Nineteen guys like Mikey swung that election. guys that register in multiple districts and who are not asked for ID at the voting booth.”

As the saying goes…“Proof or It Didn’t Happen.” When, predictably, YOU will be unable to provide the “Proof” necessary to substantiate your dumb statement… then “It Didn’t Happen.” Which, of course, makes YOU a liar? But you already know that, don’t YOU?

Remember Darrell Aubertine? I wish we could have him back, he would no doubt be part of the IDC, in a leadership position and his relationship with Cuomo would make north country issues relevant in the senate. Instead were stuck with the seemingly clueless Facebook Senator... Awesome.

I dunno MCM... maybe we should think 8:16am for his contributions. After all, guys like him make our job a lot easier.

Thanks 8:16am, keep up the good work, we couldn’t do it without you!

With Benito Cuomo in office, it really doesn't matter that we have another nose ringed follower for him to direct. Just like AddieJennie, this babe will be given a maid's outfit, told how to clean an office, and told how to vote.

I get a good laugh every time I read a post by MCM. A wanna be political guru who believes that no one can win in the north country without his blessing. ROTFLMAO I am suprised he hasn't taken credit for Tkacyzk win.........YET!

One party rule is never good. Look at this last law they passed. Now they have to send out quickie BS letters to the police telling them it's ok to work. Brilliant. Mikey type thought and reasoning prevails when one party rules. Dumbasses.

The proof that guys like Mikey cheat at these elections is that the democrats fight all efforts at voter ID laws. "These laws would disenfranchise the fraudulent voters", Mikey says.

Its not the free$hit...the birth control pills for college girls, the right to jump to the front of the immigration line if you are Hispanic, or the zero tax Danny pays on his pension that gets the votes for the donkeys. Its guys like me and my comments on a blog that get the votes for the donkeys. I am glad I make Mikey's job easier. What exactly is Mikey's job again?

Mikey is a self proclaimed "consultant". Now ain't that special. Yes 8:57, the pattern of stolen elections is clear. But media doesn't care and government is so incompetent they can't get involved.

These are not good times for people who love their country.

Repugnicans will continue to lose future elections in both NY and the National elections until the GOP moves toward the middle and abandons the lunatic fringe element in the party that has so alienated the majority of voters . The baggers and separatists and survivalists need to be purged from leadership positions and ADULTS need to assume leadership roles once again , then and ONLY then will the GOP be competitive once again .
