Don't do this to your kids

 

So, listen to Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection and be sure to vote Kathy Hochul out and Chris Collins in in NY-27, and re-elect Ann Marie Buerkle in NY-24 and Tom Reed in NY-23....and definitely send Wendy Long to the US Senate as well.

Oh, yeah, and don't forget to vote for those other two guys—what were their names again?

Tempus fugit

First, a refresher...remember this?:

There must be something wrong with the water in NYS and I don't think it has anything to do with fracking. Good grief.
 

We here at One of Nine could eliminate the middleman and free up a page on our blog for all you county Republican males to post pec pics of yourselves, but only if you look like the hottie here:

Well, the upshot of Chris Lee's pec-adillo was that Dem Kathy Hochul replaced him in NY-26.  But time sure flies because it's already time for Hochul to defend her seat.  This could be interesting—at YNN's Capital Tonight:

Former Erie County Executive Chris Collins, a Republican who was ousted by Democrat Mark Poloncarz in November, has officially been out of a job for just six days now, but already is mulling a potential return to the public sector.
 
Multiple sources said Collins has been talking himself up as a potential challenger to Democratic freshman Rep. Kathy Hochul, who stunned the political world at both the state and national levels last year when she defeated Republican Assemblywoman Jane Corwin in a special election for the GOP-dominated 26th Congressional District seat held ex-Rep. Chris Lee (felled by Craigslist sex scandal)...
 
...We know, thanks to the 2010 Census, that New York needs to lose two House seats due to the fact that it grew more slowly than other states. The bulk of the population loss has occurred in Western New York.
 
There has been talk of creating a Monroe County-only district, which would not bode well for Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter, whose 28th Congressional District includes parts of Erie, Monroe, Niagara and Orleans counties and it based in the cities of Rochester, Buffalo, and Niagara Falls.
 
Slaughter, 82, insists she’s going to seek a 14th term this fall, but she would likely have an uphill battle against GOP Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks if NY-28 were reconfigured to be solely within the confines of the county that she now leads. If that happens, it’s likely Hochul and Higgins won’t see their districts change much.
 
If Slaughter wins her redistricting fight, then Hochul and Higgins could see their districts change dramatically – so much so that they might end up in a head-to-head contest...
 
...Getting rid of Collins, who made no secret of his statewide ambitions and made a short-lived run for governor in 2010, was widely seen as a bonus for Cuomo, who likely had no interest in running against another Western NY opponent after Carl Paladino proved the region is a hotbed of unhappiness. (Hence the $1 billion, perhaps?) But it’s possible the governor hasn’t yet seen the last of the former county executive.
Good grief—again.  And we thought it was complicated last spring.  We'll keep you posted.
