Morning Read, Upstate: Beyond Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland

The coalition that claims to have seized control of the State Senate did not take the body into session Wednesday, breaking a promise, after rogue Democrat Hiram Monserrate asked for more time to talk to his colleagues.
“Hiram is driving the train. God help us all,” one lawmaker, anonymously, told the Buffalo News.
Monserrate’s “last minute shakedown” might include more committee posts and help with his legal defense.
If he flips back, the vote count in the Senate will be deadlocked in a 31-31 tie.
The Democrats will file a lawsuit today to challenge Republican control in nearby Troy.
