NY Senate Dems LOCKED In Chamber

All we need now is a couple of bears on unicycles and a lady fired from a cannon. NY Daily News reports:
Power-sharing talks have broken down and Senate Democrats have locked themselves into the chamber - the first time they've been in since the June 8 coup - beating their GOP counterparts to the punch in an effort to establish control over the gavel. It appears there are at least 20 senators inside the chamber, including all the so-called amigos, with the exception, of course, of Sen. Pedro Espada Jr. The Democrats went into the chamber just moments ago - around 12:30 p.m. - about an hour-and-a-half before the Senate GOP and Espada were scheduled to hold yet another faux session and two-and-a-half hours before the 3 p.m. special session called by Gov. David Paterson. Just before they entered, Sen. Eric Schneiderman told reporters that power-sharing talks had "collapsed."
Marriage Equality New York requests that you contact Gov. Paterson and demand that he include a vote on marriage equality in the special Senate session he has called for.
