    Oppenheimer and her votes have been, and are, largely responsible for our skyrocketing, out of control school taxes. She should take a walk with all her pandering before she bankrupts us all.

  2. State Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer want to urge Gov. David Paterson to enact new laws protecting domestic violence victims.

    Unfortunately, Mrs. Oppenheimer does not realize that David Paterson has been the supreme hypocrite to make domestic violence a signature issue of his while hiring David Johnson, a woman beater as one of his closest aide.

    For too long, David Paterson has used the state as an employment agency for his friends, gal-pals and associates. This practice needs to stop now.

    David Paterson proved long ago that he could not govern.
    “The Democratic Conference: Organizational and Operational Structure Report” is an eyewitness account of Paterson’s DYSFUNCTIONAL governing nature while Senate Minority Leader.

    Paterson’s office was criticized for PATRONAGE, LACK OF LEADERSHIP, INDECISIVENESS and INFIGHTING. Those interviewed in the report indicated that its chief of staff the disorganized Michael Jones-Bey had no management skills, and would get DRUNK with staff, often coming in the office with a HANGOVER, and should be fired.

    Amazingly, for running such a DYSFUNCTIONAL CHAOTIC office, the disorganized Michael Jones-Bey was hand picked by David Paterson to mismanage the Division of Minority & Women Owned Business Development (MWBE) at Empire State Development Corporation.

    Now that’s the Paterson Way – being rewarded for your incompetence.

  3. When does Suzi Oppenheimer start to worry about over-bearing taxes, government spending, and regulation that are strangling growth and jobs in NY?

    Same ol’ headline-grabbing, symbolic politics—while the real economic issues are ignored . . .

    Vote Bob Cohen and let’s bring to NY fiscal responsibility and leadership that actually focuses on the most critical issues . . . and gets it done . . . .

    Really Suzi?

    And will you be asking your good friend Adam Bradley to participate?

    Really, whaT hypocrisy after not one word from her regarding Adam’s violence toward his wife

  5. George Michael looks as though he may go down (lol!) because of driving about stoned. Hey, is this a threat or a promise? It’d be like shutting in most men with a harem! Lol!

  6. Please pay no attention to the posting above by George M , where he listed a link to “Annette’s Story”. I am the Annette who wrote the orginal article. George changed the article to make it MORE dramatic to fit his agenda, which is to bash woman in any way he can.
    Truth of the matter is George was abusive in 2 of his 3 marriages!
