If you thought North Adams' politics were hardball...
check out the twists and turns
going on in Albany.
It seems that NY State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno (R - Whiny little punk) has hired the nastiest, most disgraceful of all the GOP henchmen, Roger Stone (See pic on left), to try and keep the NY State Senate in GOP hands. Stone's dirty tricks range from Nixon '72 to an active role in the Miami recount riot of 2000 to accusations that he provided the forged Texas Air National Guard Documents documents regarding President Bush's flight suspension to Bill Burkett, who then turned them over to CBS.
Evidently the relationship between the Majority Leader and Stone was supposed to be kept on the down-low while Joe Bruno cried foul about the state police reporting his trips to the executive branch. However the NYTimes now has the story
(I guess it took threatening an 87 year old man to catch their attention) and I'd bet a 6-pack that Roger Stone and Joe Bruno will soon be parting ways.
No matter how disillusioned I am with Spitzer regarding his staff's monitoring of Joe Bruno, nothing he has done comes even comes slightly close to the contemptuous actions of Stone and now, by association, Bruno.
This one is going to get really really ugly.
