I know some of the folks who read this blog applied for a position in the Spitzer Administration last year. It is possible you may not have heard anything back. However, rest assured, that gooder and greater Democrats than you have also had the same problem. Patronage has ground to a screeching halt in Albany, and lots of folks are quite concerned.
(One part of me is alarmed at Spitzer’s overreliance on his tight coterie of acolytes, considering the recent problems; the other part of me is cheering, “Yeah baby!“)
