Dicker: Skelos Seat a Lock for Dems...Flipping the Upper House

    Former federal prosecutor and current Member of Assembly Todd Kaminsky is considered a lock for Dems in the coming special election to fill the Long Island seat vacated by Dean Skelos who was convicted of corruption last week.
      So says no less an authority than Fred Dicker. This would flip the Senate and as such has major implications for upstate districts where the only claim to power is the GOP Senate.
      Of course winning isn't the only challenge for Senate Democrats who took control in 2008 and fumbled the ball completely. Remember Espada, Montseratte, Smiling Malcolm, and others who were not fit for prime time.

It really dosnt matter anyway. They vote the way they are told anyway, including our Senator Ritchie.. Some of the less important items they are allowed to vote with their constituants at heart..
I read articles in which Patty Ritche has stated what a sinister thing speaker Silver did and that we had no room in the government for that but I,m waiting for the articles condemming Libeos and Skelos who practically held her hand for the past five years.. I cAn wait but Im sure I couldnt hold my breath that long...

In other news, water is wet.
That is some serious sticking out of the neck, to predict that a senate seat south of Albany will go democrat. We are all doomed.
