Let's play a little Catch-up!!!!!!!!

The Saga continues with Liz Benjamin(Capitol Confidential) The big question Liz asks...will Eliot fire up the old steamroller and push the local assemblywoman over the Niagara Falls...."Gov. Eliot Spitzer resumes his “Bringing the Budget Home” tour tomorrow in Niagara Falls - home to Assemblywoman Francine DelMonte (a Democrat who voted in favor of making Tom DiNapoli state comptroller) and Sen. George Maziarz (a Republican who sided with Spitzer and voted against DiNapoli)." my sense is no..that show is over...it is budget time now... and Liz lets us know Spitzer isn’t yet sold on the idea of moving New York’s presidential primary up to Feb. 5, according to his spokeswoman Christine Anderson.
The governor
endorsed the Freedom Tower - sorta. "Mr. Spitzer made it clear he still does not think much of the tower’s design. And he couldn’t resist taking a veiled swipe at his predecessor, George E. Pataki, saying that he “would not be in the business of having a press conference every time a brick is added to the foundation or a column goes up” at ground zero." I guess the days of Elmer using 9/11 for political purposes are past now......good riddance......and Liz also reports on the Grannis mess Anti-Grannis Sentiment Heats Up A group of New York sportsmen have started an on-line petition opposing confirmation by the GOP-controlled state Senate of Assemblyman Alexander “Pete” Grannis as DEC commissioner.
The petition, which states “grave concerns” regarding Grannis’ nomination by Gov. Eliot Spitzer, has so far has 3,604 “signatures.”
The cyber document accuses Grannis’ of having a “well-known record of being anti-trapping, hunting and anti-2nd Amendment rights,” and says his confirmation would “inflict severe, if not devastating damage” to the trapping, hunting and fishing industries, which generate tax revenues and conservation fund contributions.
“We believe department should be run by qualified Biologists and Habitat Managers, not career politicians, as our natural resources deserve to be protected devoid of political agendas.”
“We hereby urge the NYS Senate to please oppose this nomination. We need a true conservationist running this department, not someone with a political agenda.” Doesn't this remind you of Archie Bunker??? "Boy the way Glenn Miller played......ahhh memories.....instead of "devoid" they should have used "our" political agenda........I feel better now........ok...for those that like to their hunting indoors and catch some bucks....... good news......The governor
has approved plans for a $600 million casino at Monticello Raceway in the Catskills for the St. Regis Mohawk tribe - a project that proponents have struggled for 30 years to build. More on this here, here, here, here, here and here. Liz loves those here and here and here stuff.......andy
