Tedisco shows his colors

On the last day of this month there will be a big deal Congressional Special election. Jim Tedisco has been poked and prodded for weeks asking how he would have voted on the stimulus. Aha! The truth emerges.

Jim Tedisco has finally admitted he would vote No on President Obama's economic recovery plan, No on 76,000 jobs in Upstate New York, and No to the largest middle class tax cut in history.
The AP reported this yesterday:
“Scott Murphy, the Democrat running for Congress in New York, says he opposes the death penalty, even for terrorists.Speaking on Talk 1300-AM, WGDJ, Murphy tells host Fred Dicker he opposes the death penalty in all cases, including for the Sept. 11 terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center and Washington, D.C.Murphy says the evidence may not be conclusive in many cases and guilt can’t be guaranteed. He says the cost of making a mistake in a death penalty case is too high.Jim Tedisco, the Republican candidate in the March 31 special election in the 20th Congressional District, supports the death penalty.”
Frankly, thats another good reason to vote for Murphy.
