In case you were wondering why a guy like David Paterson would want to leave the elevated job of Senate Minority Leader, a frustrated Democrat emails over a note that a prominent Republican, Dean Skelos, just introduced a near-copy (S6524) of a sex-crime bill introduced last year by two Democrats, Diane Savino and Jeff Klein. (The original is S2695).
Skelos, and the Republicans, will of course get the credit if it passes. Which is why it’s nice to be in the majority.
“Typical albany bullshit!” grumbles the Democrat.
