And for the obvious reason those lies lack any currency, that would come from being truthful, and Al Sharpton and the NCAAP know it. This is really what hurts the Governor the most in terms of credibility, the longer you look at the 'Coalition' government he quietly pushed behind the scenes, the more you realize his protestations of not being involved with the internal affairs of the Senate are an outright lie. Reporters are on record as saying his people have made calls strong arming them over their reportage. Luckily he hasn't been able to buy the Press off and the truth is coming out, i.e. if slowly.
The Governor of NYS is caught in an obvious lie, "That he has in fact not taken a hands-off approach to the formation of the NYS Senate, but instead has fingerprints all over the deal." He seems to think so little of Democratic voters that he remains comfortable denying the truth to anyone who will listen to his lies and distortions, concerning the formation of the IDC and the 'Coalition' government that denies woman and minorities a right to a seat at the table.
How did Andrew Cuomo get here? The Gov. after all was the great advocate of clean and transparent government? There is a fatal flaw in this Governor's approach to the new Senate composition and to erase it, he has to backtrack and practice the inclusion of all Democrats that he seemingly would have been for in the first place. Perhaps he talked himself into this corner by kidding himself that he would be able to push his legislation more efficiently, via this supposedly bipartisan approach. Was it bipartisan or the last gasp of a Republican leadership to make any deal on the way out that would keep them in power positions?
It was really all about hanging onto power for Dean Skelos and gaining power for Sen. Klein, even at the expense of limiting the influence of other Democrats. In the end Gov. Cuomo has to walk away from the IDC and 'Coalition' government in the Senate and let a Democratic Majority take control of the NYS Senate, or he loses all credibility with voters of the State and the majority of his own Democratic Party. It takes a big man to admit a big mistake and let's hope Gov. Cuomo is big enough to do so before it's too late.
