Judge Lazio

Tuesday, September 28, 2010 - 11:05 AM

Yesterday, Rick Lazio announced he'll end his gubernatorial bid on the Conservative Party. To do so at this late stage, he has to accept a judicial nomination from the party, so they can replace him as a gubernatorial candidate with someone else, like...Carl Paladino.

Lazio, who lives on Long Island, is being nominated for a judicial seat in the Bronx. So, does Lazio actually want to be a judge?

"Desperately no," Lazio said when he called into the Brian Lehrer show this morning. "If elected, I’ll resign."
