And the "secret" meeting?

Democratic and labor leaders came to the Holiday Inn in Kingston today to meet — as has been reported — “in secret” (The first capital of New York, apparently, is not on the map).

The Daily News’ Elizabeth Benjamin has the full report.

It’s not the first time state Democrats meet around here.

In August of last year, Senate Democrats held a fundraiser at Wiltwyck Golf Club. Malcolm Smith, then minority leader, told attendees — mainly lobbyists — to “get in on the ground floor” so that they could be “taken care of.” Otherwise, he added, it would be “a lot more expensive” later.

After the gigantic storm that ensued, Smith(‘s director of communications) resigned. It was an appropriate move. (Not)

Alas, there was no such juicy bits from today’s meeting. PolitickerNY reported that union leaders “expressed concern about the polling numbers for everyone–except (state Attorney Gen. Andrew) Cuomo.”

State politicians polling badly? Who knew?

It’s nice to see they’re finally tackling the important issues that matter to New Yorkers, like worrying about how they are going to get re-elected.

But hey, at least they’re not asking for money.
