Caucus, circus, same thing
by Larry Geller
The circus in New York continues to break entertainment records. I imagine that many New Yorkers are discovering their state capitol for the first time.
One of the two senators who switched his vote to swing power to the Republicans, Pedro Espada, claims that his home was broken into, although he didn’t report it to police for two days. His home in Mamaroneck, Westchester County, that is. He represents a district in the Bronx, so he should be living there. His residence status is under investigation by the Bronx District Attorney's Office.
Today (Friday) a demonstration took place in front of his Bronx district office.
According to WBAI news, his Bronx district office is empty.
The latest on the other switcheroo, who is currently under indictment for assaulting his girlfriend, is that he’s planning to vote with his own party and caucus with the Democrats. How is that possible? He’ll essentially be a spy if allowed into the Democratic caucus. Circus, I mean.
