Bizarro World Good Government

19 Oct

This Buffalo News editorial regarding the Pfaff/Pigeon/Espada waste of $70,000 is dead-on.

As I said when it became clear that the Democratic caucus in the state senate was willing to make a deal with Espada to regain its majority, I would rather they be in the minority than deal with such fundamental scummery.

The fact that Espada’s tentacles reach into WNY is detestable, and Pfaff would make a welcome addition to the growing ranks of New York State’s unemployed.

    While I certainly don’t like the idea of another Pigeon protege landing a nice cushy job, I would like to point out a couple of items that might have been overlooked in this story. First off, the Senate Majority Office in Bufalo was always staffed by a number of (5) people always Republican since the Republicans were in the majority. Dale Volker’s boy Harry Wahl used to head up that offfice. It is my understanding that the current office of the Senate Majority employs (3) persons including Pfaff. So i guess there is a savings there. The “new” Senate Office which Joe Mesi headed up for a brief time employs (5) people. Guess who the new boss is over there?
    None other than grass roots political operator Al Thompson. He gets dumped from the BOE and winds up with another useless high paying position at the State Senate. Just thought you would like to know in case you didn’t already.
