An Extraordinary Session: Yes Pigeon, No Parker, No Deal

ALBANY—During the Republican half of another lightning-quick extraordinary session this afternoon, I noticed Steve Pigeon sitting on the State Senate floor behind Senator Pedro Espada Jr.
Pigeon, who was one of the principle architects of the coup that has hobbled the chamber, remains the executive director of billionaire Tom Golisano’s Reponsible New York P.A.C. When I asked, Pigeon said he was now serving as Espada’s private counsel, and expected to be formally put on the Senate payroll when the leadership struggle in the chamber is resolved. Whenever. That. Might. Be.
Liz reported this possibility a while ago, but Pigeon indicated it was all but set at this point.
