Okay, now this really disturbs me. The Jefferson County Republicans think they can take out the seat long held by incumbent Representative John McHugh because they are going to pick off one of our own moderates and run her as one of their own and create mass confusion for the GOP.
It's never been a secret that Dede Scozzafava is a moderate. We have said it again and again here. What is even worse about her is that she has some serious ethics questions to answer about her involvement in financial mismanagement and corruption with her brother Thomas Scozzafava, a venture capitalist running Hacketts out of business in the North Country.
But what bothers me is that they are actually pushing the idea as a legitimate possibility within the scope of reason. They source this new "coalition to draft dede as a democrat" as their path to undercut our party to win the district. It is wayyy too early to even know who our options even are. I even got an e-mail from someone at email@example.com asking if our blog would endorse the effort.
Well we want to use this post to say in no uncertain terms that NO WE DO NOT ENDORSE YOUR PLAN. Take it somewhere else. Thanks, but no thanks.
