Cash is King

Ken Lovett has uncovered what is keeping the Senate Republicans and IDC together: Money.

State Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan’s decision to dole out questionable stipends to seven state senators was the result of various competing interests, insiders say … an attempt to keep eight breakaway Democrats aligned with the GOP in a leadership coalition happy and Flanagan’s desire to appease a number of his own upstate Republican members who feel the Independent Democratic Conference, or IDC, were given too much influence and too many perks, all played a part in the unusual payouts. “It’s a combination of all of it,” said one GOP senator …”

Shit like this is why New York leads the nation in corrupt politicians.  Flanagan has the balls to make funny money payouts even after both Shelly and Dean went down for corruption.
