Florida on the Hudson...
On the day that Democrats in NY-19 chose John Hall to take on Rubber Stamp Sue Kelly, it was somewhat surprising to see a bunch of Sue's lackeys waving their signs at the Peekskill train station. But there they were as we got off of the 5:12 from Grand Central, getting in the way of two of the candidates that were actually on the ballot on Tuesday: Darren Rigger and Ben Shuldiner.
One has to wonder how desperate Sue's folks must be to try and disrupt an official election. Then again, perhaps they're getting some tips from Sue's neighbor to the north, John Sweeney, who according to this article in Slate has some expertise in this area.
Don't the people in NY-19 deserve better than some party goons intent on disrupting an election? We think so. Unfortunately, Sue's primary day tricks are probably just the beginning. With the Republicans desperate to hang on to Sue's seat, we're betting that today's Florida on the Hudson moment is just the beginning.
We now need to rally behind him. I'm fairly certain that Sue Kelly's machine will stop at nothing, plastering the airwaves with more of these "independent voice" ads, distorting her record, and launching negative attacks on her opponent. We have to give John the help and resources to prevail in November.
I'm also very excited that Sue Kelly's rubber stamping of corrupt Bush policies will soon come to an end! John Hall will have my FULL support until he wins in November.
I've changed my mind, let's keep her....NOT! Go John Hall!!!
