Does anybody read the NYS Constitution anymore? Last week in the dead of night, the NYS Legislature addressed a number of bills on Assembly and Senate redistricting, a DNA database, casino gambling, performance evaluations for educators, the establishment of the independent redistricting commission, and pension reform. All but one was passed with a simple majority of 36 votes. There is, however, a problem the governor, Senate Republicans, and New York’s media insist upon ignoring: there was no quorum for the Tier VI pension vote.
The man is on a roll.
If I told you during the campaign that Governor Andrew Cuomo would have major, unprecedented first-year accomplishments, and then would set the bar high in year two, wouldn't you ask what was in my coffee? Did I have some type of head injury?
On NY1, Congressman Charles Rangel would joke all the time asking live on TV, if I was drinking that "Giuliani" water? You might ask right now, if I had some of that "Cuomo" Water? (Answer is no, and no.)
