    So what do millions of New York serfs have to offer in a deal with these candidates, compared with the public employee unions and whoever is funneling money through Mastro?  Votes?  They can lie to get those, and they only matter on Election Day when most Democrats think things will already be decided.

    Your link for “DiNapoli Promises Thorough Review of Tappan Zee Contract; Must Conclude by Mid-March” says LoHud (Journal News) but the story it links to is on Newsday.

  • Well, at least Mastro’s taste runs to untenable politicians.
