It was a bad news/good news day for Dede Scozzafava

First the Bad news:
The influential national blog politico outed the Assemblywoman on a few issues--particularly unpaid taxes.

The first lady of NY blog Liz Benjamin reported the troubles along with the fact that Dede had been seen courting the democrat line as well (per June O'Neill)

Of course, the big hit of the week was from the conservative blog Red State

Now the Good News:

For some unknown reason the 11 republican chairs picked her as the GOP candidate in the 23rd special election. Wait a minute. That might very well be good news for us.
