Delgado to Take Oath This Week. Antonio Delgado will be sworn in as Lieutenant Governor. The announcement was made yesterday by Kathy Hochul. His inaguration comes in the aftermath of the Benjamin scandal. He was forced to resign as LG after being indicted on federal corruption charges. It exposed the gross incompetence and inexperience of the Governor. She selected him to be her running mate without properly vetting him. It was widely known that he was under investigation when she gave him the nod. Delgado is vacating the 19th congressional district. His departure throws wide open the race for the House Congressional seat. If the Republican candidate should win, it would tip the balance of power in Congress to the GOP. Hochul’s strategizing is an unqualified disaster. Delgado to Take Oath This Week. His elevation has far reaching implications on the national scene !!
