Ed Koch on Post-Coup New York: ‘Sickening,’ ‘Laughing Stock’

What does Ed Koch think of the change in leadership in the State Senate?

“I have never seen anything as sickening than what’s taking place,” he told reporters during a press conference this afternoon where he announced his endorsement of Leslie Crocker Snyder for Manhattan district attorney.

Later, Koch said the worst part is that one of the Senate Democrats who defected to support the Republicans is now next in line to be the governor if anything happened to David Paterson.

“What an outrage. What a laughing stock New York State would be,” he said. Of the Republicans, he said, “They have no standings, no they have no conscience, they have no scruples.”
