Stormin' Gorman hits this one out of the park!
This is a must read!
By: Bob Gorman WDT editorial
Aubertine is ruining the north country
Well, according to the GOP, that is

The kids couldn't hurt Jack, they tried, tried, tried; they dropped things on his back, they lied, lied, lied, lied, lied

FEB. 13: 2009 The long knives are out for Sen. Darrel Aubertine as the state’s GOP has begun a barrage of emails to journalists about how the one-year-long senator is abandoning the north country and its people.
But I thought he was one of us!!!!
Sample headlines in emails from “Just The Facts,” which is prepared by the Senate Republican Campaign Committee, include:
Aubertine votes to raise cost of health insurance outrages businesses
Democrat scheme includes job-killing sweep of NYPA funds
Bad news for families too; SUNY tuition increase hijacked
And the man in the middle of all this tragedy, travesty and trepidation is the Democrat Aubertine, according to the GOP.
Has anyone caused so much heartburn in such a short period of time?
Today it was more of the same. According to the GOP, quoting a story in the Syracuse Post-Standard, “North Country State Senator Darrel Aubertine is lobbying Gov. David Paterson to save a Lower Manhattan group that sponsors lawmakers' junkets – including a previously unpublicized 2005 trip Aubertine took to China."
