Election fraud takes many forms in modern America and now we have a new one to add to the list, ‘Incorporation of procedural technicalities to block elected officials from gaining their seats in a timely fashion,’ and to delay or negate the will of the people who voted for them. Gov. Cuomo appears to be part of a Republican delaying strategy according to Fred Dicker, and will unless he dispels the notion – that he is a backroom intriguer thwarting the will of the people as concerns their voting intent at the ballot with the help of the IDC- he’ll have entered into a hall of shame from which he’ll never exit in my mind.
According to Fred Dicker the Dean of Albany political journalists, “The plan involves intentionally further delaying ongoing court challenges to the two apparent Democratic victors so that the 30 Republicans who have been elected to the Senate can join with GOP-friendly Democrat Sen.-elect Simcha Felder of Brooklyn in voting 31 to 30 over Democrats to select the new majority leader, two sources close to the situation said.” This artificially created Republican Majority would stop a ‘Fully’ elected body of Senators now likely to mean a 32-31 Democratic Majority from taking control of the Senate and the Majority leader’s seat. This means according to Fred Dicker’s sources in the Senate that, “Once the Republicans have control of the Senate again, even for a few weeks, they could hand out so many perks — staff allotments, office space, cars and other goodies — that they could buy off a couple of Democrats and keep themselves in control.’’
If the Gov. Cuomo allows this Republican delaying strategy to happen, he will have committed the unforgivable political sin of not just being disloyal to the Democratic Party, but to all Democratic voters in NYS. At that point we can only start to count the ways, we will commence to working on how, to make Mr. Cuomo pay for his failure to keep Albany politics clean and transparent. Gov. Cuomo will no longer be a Democratic Governor in good standing, which he was when elected as by these same voters, whose vote he now seems to be part of negating. At stake here is NYS Senate control by Democrats who’ve earned it via the 2012 election results. Elections have
results and consequences, that shouldn't be ignored by the Republicans in theSenate. Gov. Cuomo these election results clearly mean the Senate should have a Democratic Majority Leader this session. If necessary Senate Democrats should delay the opening session until the Election results are finalized and their Majority in place.
