Kearns supporters were probably shocked today when he left the door open to the possibility of voting for Albany criminal Sheldon Silver. Maybe their shock had something to do with Kearns repeatedly saying he would "never" vote for Silver during the campaign? From the Buffalo News...
While he again stressed he will be an independent voter on legislation, Kearns on Thursday shied away from talk about his earlier pledges not to vote for Silver as Democratic leader.
Does he still believe Silver should not be the Assembly leader?
"Well, I'm not voting on that right now," Kearns said.Kearns said exactly what he scolded Chris Fahey for saying during their debate. When it comes to double speak, Walt Disney thinks he has a vivid imagination. Was Thursday the first time Kearns traveled to Albany, as stated in the article? Maybe. Or maybe he simply thought it would make for a nice story. You never really know with Mickey. He has absolutely no problem making things up from time to time. Like when he promises two people the same fictitious Executive Director's job and then they bump into each other. (As happened recently.)
Kearns ended the interview by stating he would do whatever it takes to fight corruption in Albany, right after he finishes folding Silver's laundry and babysitting his kids for him.
Kearns, Silver get along in first Albany meeting
it's the same old story, same old song and dance, my friend
it's the same old story, same old story
same old song and dance...
