NEW YORK: Another Loss For NOM
Remember how NOM poured buckets of cash into the New York Senate campaign of Brooklyn businessman David Storobin? Remember how NOM buddied up to an Orthodox Jewish hate group in order to have them issue an order that it's against Torah law to vote for marriage supporter Lew Fidler? Remember how the election was so close that both sides are suing over rejected ballots? Well, it was all a waste of your time and money, Ms. Brownshirt.
Political insiders say the state Senate’s 2012 session is scheduled to end in June, possibly before the city declares a winner in the ongoing slugfest between Councilman Lew Fidler (D–Marine Park) and Republican David Storobin for Kruger’s vacant seat — meaning that whoever wins will not be able to cast a single vote before his district is eliminated at the end of the year. “I don’t think the election will be settled before June 30,” said former Bensonhurst state Sen. Seymour Lachman, the current director of the Hugh L. Carey Center for Government Reform at Wagner College in Staten Island.
