He can join the RATS in the sewer and go down with the ship.

After he joined with the Republicans his house was broken into and suddenly there were 2 investigations into his finances. This sounds like self-preservation.

So much SCUM and so little time to skim it.

Trust me, there are many of us in New York that are pushing hard for a constitutional convention. Bar that, this state’s ability to lead itself if stuck on stupid.
