Adriano Espaillat tenia y deberia haber ganado las elecciones. Todo estaba a su favor. El Congresista Charlie Rangel tenia todas las cosas en su contra.

The Six Million Dollar Real-Estate Man

What you should know is today is the last day of the legislative session in Albany.

Today is the day for the last-minute deal-making, when poor people – who cannot afford high-priced lobbyists – usually end up paying the price for special interest deals.

Today is the day when “big ugly” packages of legislation, traded for campaign cash, usually get passed with messages of necessity from the Governor.

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, to be specific, two years ago when the Democrats were in control of the New York State Senate and the Black and Hispanic Legislators were getting too much power, things were different.

Once upon a time, I remember how tough the leader of the New York State Assembly Sheldon Silver was fighting for the purity and cleanliness of New York’s elected officials.

Even their wives were supposed to be perfect… not only pure, but have an appearance of purity.

Senator Tom Duane's Retirement

You should know that New York State Senator Tom Duane today has announced his decision not to seek re-election.

Even though there are two social issues – gay marriage and abortion – that Tom Duane and I have never agreed on and have very strong and differing points of view on, I have to say that I have mixed feelings about him leaving the Senate.
