An Update of Senate Conduct in Albany

Hezi Aris Archives 4 Comments

Paterson_David Albany, NY — Senate Democrats and Republicans are following Gov. David Paterson's call to hold a special session this afternoon after he threatened Wednesday to take them to court and withhold their paychecks if they left Albany.

The disparate sides met this morning behind closed doors to continue discussions on whether the Senate leadership battle can be resolved to end the nearly three-week leadership dispute.

Gov. Paterson threatened to take both sides to court after Senate Democrats initially refused to re-enter the chamber because they claimed Paterson's call of a special session was illegal.

Late last night, however, Paterson issued a statement saying the sides had agreed to meet in session today.  If they follow through, this will be the first time since the June 8 leadership coup that they would meet in the same session.

    An update on the update.
    The “session” lasted one minute. Nothing was done.
    You can never trust those Albany types.
    It’s a Rocky road up there.
