Russell Lashes Out at Byrne Ads Linking Her to Former Speaker

      Assemblywoman Addie Russell is trying to discredit advertising that links her to NYC and  Sheldon Silver.
      Mr. Silver is one of the few statewide political figures with universal name recognition (mostly negative) in NNY.  The linkage is something that can only help Republican John Byrne who is not running on a campaign to promote himself but is strictly making the argument the district should elect a Republican not beholden to downstate interests.

     Ms. Russell is attemptng to argue the TV ads are paid for by downstate interests.
     The public doesn't care about the explanation, they only see the spots which are effective.
      The incumbent is doing much better than two years ago, but her feel good commercials need to be augmented by bare knuckles. 
      In this Trumpian year, incumbency is no guarantee of anything, and the corruption issue is a strong one when Democratic icons like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have also talked at length of a "rigged" system.
     Ms. Russell needs to compare her character to that of her opponent, and that means stepping up the attacks in tomorrow's brief TV debate. All Mr. Byrne needs to do is keep talking about NNY not getting its fair share and reminding votes of the incumbent's support for Mr. Silver.

Addie better make nice with Andy. I have a feeling she may be needing a job after November 8th.

I don't blame Addie for being upset. The truth really bothers most politicians. She stood by Sheldon long after most people saw the light. No question, in some ways you have to respect her loyalty. But lady, you attached yourself to scum. You've been owned by the NYC Dems since you made the first drive to Albany. If you ever knew or cared about NNYers, it never showed.

she either supported him,or she didn't.There is no prevaricating on the subject,and she must live with her support of the guy.

With the ethical standards of the Democrat party, how can Maid Addie gripe about who is paying the bills? The bottom line, the ads are effective because they are true. Our lady has been a simple and submissive tool of NYC Democrats since was first elected.

Sure you see Addie everywhere right now ... it's an election year. If she wins on Nov. 8, starting Nov 9 you won't see her again for another year and half.

She aligns herself with questionable people in Albany and NYC. She stands up for them and their bad decisions until it looks bad for her and then she flip/flops and claims to disagree their decisions.

She mentioned to me she was trying to get grants for a local individual for his private property and told municipal governments in the same location there was no money for their emergency needs. From my work I have seen her visits to this person's home (sometimes twice a day) .. at 7am and noon and middle of the afternoon

She's not working for what's best for the region. I don't know if Byrne would serve us any better but Addie needs to go.

She voted for the "SAFE-Act" and she supported Sheldon Silverslime. That's all anyone needs to know. It's just that simple.

Addie, a full supporter of PPP funding with NYS taxpayers dollars over 60 million American babies murdered through abortion since the 1970.

An accomplishment she should be very proud of.

Vote for John Byrne - here's another reason why:

Mayor excellent analysis of Assembly race -- spot on! I'm a little surprised that in District 116 more hasn't been said about Assemblywoman Russell's subservience to NARAL & her putting 'Abortion Amendment' 1st, as opposed voting for the 9 NYS Senate approved Woman Equality Act Planks approved by the GOP dominated Senate at that time. In fact she went against her mentor Speaker Sheldon Silver's advice and made it all 10 planks or nothing. Woman were really set back by her bad judgment in forcing the issue! Mike Flynn Middle Class Mike!

4:25, easy to say, but substance free. Addie is a stand out bend over for NYC interests. Don't be stupid and try to throw everyone into her septic tank.
