Falling Short

Falling Short. Hector LaSalle’s nomination did not muster enough votes to pass the Senate Judiciary Committee. His bid to head the Court of Appeals is dead for now. 10 Democrats on the 19 member Committee went against him. It is an affront to the large and vibrant Hispanic community. He would have been the first Latino to head the state’s highest court. Hochul shows no signs of backing down. She is hiring a litigator to sue to force a full vote by the Senate. She will likely seek support of Republican legislators. The matter is far from settled. Falling Short. The liberal left flank is again rearing its ugly head !!
