'Anti-Corruption Crusader' Zephyr Teachout Nabs NY Primary Win

   Eclectic ?  Yes, a bit...but Zephyr Teachout has anti corruption chops in a year when that's big. She is hated by the Governor even though she's a Democrat and she has enthusiasm and effervescence against a GOP rival known for being strident and didactic. John Faso, who lost to Eliot Spitzer in 2006 is thought to have his hands full in the 19th District stretching down the Hudson Valley.
    Faso is also yesterday's news.
    A long time GOP hack tells me Ms. Teachout may have an edge, although variables like Presidential turnout come into play.
     Ms. Teachout also can raise money although Mr. Faso is well lubricated financially.
     Should be an interesting race.

Imagine that. A Democrat that works against corruption. Our golf course hero will be mortified, as it were. Or at the very least, be greatly confused. Rumor has it she is 1/93 Eskimo. Is that that coolest thing?

She is not a democrat, she is a socialist by another name. And she is not anti corruption, she is the epitome of corruption itself.

3:12, I don't know about Eskimo, but she is well documented to be half New yorker and half Vermonter. Her answer depends on; if she is trying to avoid City income taxes vs if she is trying to run in the primary for governess. Normal people call that lying (AKA corruption), but people who love free stuff don't care.

Aren't all Democrats socialists, 4:43? Most are criminals. All are liars. That's what excites golfers so much.

No 6:32, a lot of them are, but many are just militant pro-abortion whack-jobs, willing sell the country down the tubes as long as they can kill babies up to one second before it comes out the vajayjay. These people don't necessarily believe in much of the democrat freestuff totalitarian platform. They just love abortions (well, that and gay marriage) more than any other issue.
