Will New York’s Senators Spend July 4 Working? Hah, No.

So upset with the New York State Senate’s inability to stop acting like third graders and come together to pass legislation, Gov. David Paterson is demanding senators work through the holiday weekend. We’re doubting much will get done just because Paterson says so — given folks like Sen. Ruben Diaz has said he has no plans on staying in Albany. And we’re sorry we’ve been bringing you so much New York state politics lately, but when the circus is in town, you don’t want to miss it.
