Senate Dems "thank" Cuomo for redistricting help
May 23rd, 2012

New York’s Senate Democrats offered up a video response to last night’s Legislative Correspondent’s show — and it’s a bit of a doozy. The video features Sens. Michael Gianaris, Liz Krueger and Kevin Parker sitting around a speaker phone anxiously waiting to speak to the governor about redistricting. Gianaris happily lays down the law on redistricting to a dial tone after an executive chamber secretary insists the governor is not available. That is when the hijinx start. Former Gov. David Paterson makes an appearance with Errol Louis on NY1’s Wise Guy’s segment. Paterson delivers his patented SNL “NEW JEERRSEY!” line. Check it out.

Cuomo famously changed the standards for what kind of lines would earn a veto while Senate Republicans and Democrats held their breaths. In the end, Cuomo came to a deal with Senate Republicans and Assembly Democrats that allowed the Legislature to draw district lines one more time in exchange for a constitutional amendment that will change the process the next time around.

    I do enjoy the way you have presented this particular difficulty plus it really does offer us some fodder for consideration. However, from what I have experienced, I really hope as the actual comments pile on that men and women continue to be on point and don’t get started upon a tirade associated with the news du jour. Still, thank you for this excellent piece and whilst I do not really go along with the idea in totality, I value your perspective.

    Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

    Thanks for your article on the traveling industry. I might also like contribute that if your senior taking into consideration traveling, it truly is absolutely important to buy travel insurance for golden-agers. When traveling, elderly people are at biggest risk of getting a health care emergency.

    I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you ought to write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t discuss such topics. To the next! All the best!!
