Nervous Dems Want Off List

    Candidates often tout their list of local officials who back them, and in SLC this week Rep. Elise Stefanik had to say "oops" when a couple Dems showed up on a list. They claim they didn't endorse her but we will never know.
    They could have agreed to be on the list as an exercise in conflct avoidance and keeping good relations with their MOC.  They also could have changed their mind, perhaps after a call from a June O'Nelll type.
     There was a gubernatorial primary a couple years back where local elected offiials were reminded not to get off the reservation.
      In any event, these lists of local endorsements have become perfunctory and are only paid attention to when something goes awry and requires an apology.
      Of course the two who wanted off the list have drawn attention to the 82 who want to be on it. I'll take those odds. Long term, showing up the Congresswoman publicly may or may not prove a clever move.

Not bad for Stefanik 82 to 2 or 3.

Hope the results of her re-election fall along that breakdown.

I was only hoping for 65-70%!

The polling was the last election and primary results. An unknown womyn won handily, embarrassing her opponents and embarrassing the guy who barley won twice before against one of her opponents. Now that everyone knows her and she is playing the part like a ham, she will do even better.

As far as the lists and endorsements go, no one cares anymore. In the world of internet, no one looks to a trusted Walter Cronkite type for direction any longer. any faults an endorser or candidate has, are ubiquitously known. Even Cosby's peccadillo got out. "I'm here for the audition" "here take this pill or drink", "Okay" {gulp gulp gulp}

Getting off the subject a little it was quite refreshing to see that five turnkeys at a NYS prison were indicted by a Federal Grand jury yesterday on several charges related to inmate beatings.. The COs liar president of NYSCOPBA hasnt too much to scream about now has he. Ogdensburg Correctional incidents will be reviewed soon according to Federal Prosecuteors staff....

So, Ms. Stefanik's team pulled a "Wells Fargo" and gets praised at this trough no less. Why am I not surprised.

But, she did apologize - good for her in that regard ... still one DEM waiting for his apology, however. Probably forthcoming.

Weiner parades weiner in front of little girls, while Benito aides Percoco and Howe are charged for corruption by the feds. Great day ahead for the golf course hero. I'm sure the spin is being developed as we speak. Tune in at noon to hear the party line puke, as it were.

Well now we see Dannie's strategy. He is trying to change the subject and blame Stefanik for something not only unrelated but something she had nothing to do with. Dan, you duh man. A party line stooge in every way. The gov of NY's circle is busted for corruption and his Weiner panders to underaged girls. But the Hero wants to talk about Stefanik. Puke, as it were.
