    I would have never voted for her in my wildest dreams. She and her family destroy people and don't give a rat's ass for progressives. You're being played. The Democrats I know in Buffalo would not shed a tear if her district were eradicated.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.

      •  She provided political cover (1+ / 0-)

        for her husband in his fascist prosecution of a local artist on behalf of the Bush administration. They prosecuted a guy who was a critic of Monsanto and the case was widely seen as a test expansion of the Patriot Act. When local Democrats pushed back by organizing and getting their representatives involved, she provided enough cover politically in town so that the severe encroachment of rights continued. Tilda Swinton even made a movie about what they did--Strange Culture--and though everything turned out alright in the end when the presiding judge called Hochul's attempts totally appalling )he threw out a case that was prosecuted for years), they did manage to bankrupt the artist and to force a plea on an elderly professor (who helped with the artist's work) because the professor had terminal cancer and didn't want to spend his last days ion court.

    •  Honestly, that sounds like exaggeration to me (2+ / 0-)

      I haven't heard anything about Hochul's family destroying anyone and as negative as that campaign was, it seems as if something like that would have come out.

      •  It's not (0+ / 0-)

        We're discussing which Democrat should be sacrificed in redistricting. One definitely will be.

    •  Who would you like? Corwin? Chris Lee? (0+ / 0-)

      Obviously some Democrats like her.

      •  The point is, few local Democrats (1+ / 0-)

        would bemoan it if that heavily Republican district was obliterated and Louise Slaughter and Brian Higgins split the spoils between them.
