Tim "Hortons" Kennedy, a robot for Andrew Cuomo and a huge financial benefactor of unions, actually had to make a decision recently. Of course, he betrayed his union buddies and supported Cuomo with Tier VI. The question is, will the unions take this snub lying down or will they actually do something about it?
It appears elected leaders will face some fallout from unions over the pension reform.
The 265,000-member Civil Service Employees Association earlier this month suspended political endorsements and contributions because of the enacted pension reform.
"Suspended?" The politicians will simply find other special interest groups to bribe them. Let's see how long this suspension lasts. Will the unions actually run people against the likes of Kennedy? When they were supposed to meet with him on the issue, Kennedy left his office and had an intern stand in for him. And this is the guy the unions sent to Albany? Many people will be judging their strength based on how they respond to Little Timmy. Here's a chance for them to put up or shut up.
