Bill to Remove Benjamin DOA. Legislation to nuke Brian Benjamin from the ballot will not be taken up by the Senate. Andrea Stewart-Cousins is effectively keeping him in the running. The wannabe Lieutenant Governor self destructed when he was arrested on federal fraud charges. He allegedly intentionally misdirected campaign contributions for his failed NYC Comptroller bid. The fiasco is a blot on the record of Kathy Hochul. She selected him to be her number two despite swirling rumors of his pending indictment. At the least she demonstrated gross incompetence for choosing him as her running mate. Whether she herself survives the scandal remains to be seen. Bill to Remove Benjamin DOA. The political machinations just make it worse for the Democrats ticket !!
