No more standing by her man for Assemblywoman Addie Russell, who as part of her rehabilitation for 2016 tells NPR she now feels betrayed by Speaker Sheldon Silver, whom she defended when charged with corruption.
That episode is a loose end hanging out there. A loop needing closure as Ms. Russell actually went beyond a presumption of innocence and charged the Speaker's prosecution was political.
Meanwhile on the GOP side the former bobsledder and former bar owner are toiling in arenas the media doesn't cover, with the establishment choice apparently anti Trump and the pro Trump candidate hated by party leaders and the press.
Hammering the incumbent on her slobbering defense of a clearly tainted Speaker was about the only issue she was highly vulnerable on this year. That dealt with, Ms. Russell seems poised for another term.
And she supports revision of SLA law and we like that.
