Here is Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli (on the right) outside the Assembly chambers, chatting about how he’d have to resign immediately from his seat if he’s elected comptroller later this afternoon.
He explained that a press conference would be held down the street at the comptroller’s office. If he’s elected.
“Don’t jinx me,” he said.
The Assembly Democrats are meeting right now behind closed doors for some last minute arm-twisting.
Update: Wait no more. Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is saying DiNapoli is in.
