On the last Sunday before he starts changing everything, Eliot Spitzer was at the St. Luke African Methodist Episcopal church on Amsterdam Avenue, standing in next to state Democratic Party chairman Denny Farrell.
While Spitzer had some kind words for Andrew Cuomo (who was there too with his daughter, Cara), it was Spitzer’s praise for Farrell that was striking.
It’s hard not to imagine Farrell, who was elected to the Assembly in 1974, as part of the Albany institution that Spitzer will be changing somehow.
Here’s what Spitzer said:
The interesting thing is that Spitzer has been able to carry the “everything changes on Day 1” message while praising, and working pretty closely it seems, with many of the institutional players in Albany.
