Dispatch From the Inner Sanctum

A legislative aide briefed on today’s meeting of Assembly Democrats said that the “consensus is not to do one of the three” comptroller candidates recommended by the Eliot Spitzer-backed independent screening panel. What the conference should do instead remains unclear, the aide said.

Liz Benjamin, whose turf I’m gingerly tiptoeing on right now, has more on all this here.

His spokesman called with a response: No comment.
