So, the Assembly Democrats are together for the next three days in Brooklyn. In addition to setting legislative priorities, they get to break bread with statewide elected officials, at least one of who seems to have taken a clear political lesson from Eliot Spitzer’s string of setbacks at the hands of the legislature.
When asked how things are going, one attendee at the event said via email, “I’m still recovering from the ass kissing the Assembly got from Andrew Cuomo. He spoke to us at lunch. He talked about the great stuff he’s been doing and how great the NYS legislature is especially Shelly.”
I’m still waiting to hear back from Cuomo’s office.
If anyone has any other inside accounts from the conference, please let me know.
