Diaz: I’m Not Flipping, Despite Eating Tuna With Skelos

ALBANY—State Senator Ruben Diaz Sr. insists he will remain a part of the Democratic conference, despite David Paterson’s call for a vote tomorrow on a same-sex marriage bill on Wednesday.
Speculation raced through the chamber when Diaz went to the office of Senator Dean Skelos, a Republican, after the announcement.
“I just went there to eat a sandwich. Pedro Espada and Senator Skelos invited me to eat a sandwich. Tuna fish sandwich,” Diaz Sr. explained.
“Tomorrow is tomorrow, today is today. We have to wait until tomorrow.”
A Democratic source said Diaz was assured by the conference leadership that even though the bill was put forward by Paterson, it will not be acted upon.
