A New Truce in Albany
Friday, July 10, 2009
New York, NY —
The coup is over, or long live the coup? Republicans have gone back to being the minority party in the State Senate, after temporarily seizing power when two Democrats joined their conference on June 8. But after Bronx Democrat Pedro Espada went back to his conference yesterday, the Democrats are back in charge.
That arrangement might still be fragile with a bare majority of 32 votes to 30. But both sides are claiming they're winners.
Joining me now to discuss the coup that was -- and the new truce in Albany -- is Dick Dadey, executive director of the government watchdog group Citizens Union.
