Below is the reprehensible statement of support for Skelos by the following NYS Senators, and my Response to Senator Cathy Young:
“We strongly believe that Senator Dean Skelos should remain on as Majority Leader of the New York State Senate. He has the leadership we need to move the Senate forward so that we can continue to do the people’s work and finish out this year’s session in a productive manner.”
Senator Tom Libous , Senator Hugh Farley, Senator Kenneth LaValle, Senator James L. Seward, Senator Kemp Hannon, Senator William Larkin, Senator Michael Nozzolio, Senator Carl L. Marcellino, Senator Martin Golden, Senator Cathy Young, Senator John Flanagan, Senator Jack M. Martins, Senator Simcha Felder, Senator Phil Boyle, Senator Michael Venditto, Senator Tom Croci
Senator Cathy Young….if you sell out to the ‘downstaters’ I can assure you that you will have a blistering primary next year.
Your use of smoke and mirrors won’t work again. You’ve been walking between the raindrops. Your initial support of Skelos after the indictment was shocking and illustrative that he and his nest of worms own you. You sold your soul to Skelos and especially Senator Nozzolio. They left you at the curb. They are self-absorbed thieves and they used you. What did you get for it? How are your constituents getting along? Wouldn’t their lives be better if we had fracking? Skelos had bargaining chips he never used. Upstate doesn’t matter to him. He owns Ed Cox and the State Party. We haven’t heard a word out of Cox since the indictment. He’ll be leaving for Oregon in September. Are your constituents happy with the SAFE Act? It would have never passed if Skelos and the heathens from Long Island didn’t sell out their party and the party’s candidate for Governor last year.
The real paradox is why you voted for Skelos as leader twice after his treachery. Its’ time for new blood.
