New York Voting Machines

From the NY Times:

"In the state capital, 'nothing gets done until everything gets done,' said Blair Horner, legislative director of the New York Public Interest Research Group. 'All issues have to be on the table and negotiated at the same time. It's madness.'"

Check out the article. Apparently the reason we can't get new voting machines for the whole state is because one Assemblyman (Kosinki) wants a raise. How very selfless of him.

Update: Another helpful reader doing some fact checking. Now I know.

"Kosinki is not an Assemblyman, he is a Republican Commissioner of the State Board of Elections. "
