All those years that the Three Men held sway, didja ever want to imagine what sort of crap was caked-on in those Augean stables of Albany? The NYT takes a look at some of the “recently discovered” perks that Senate Republicans enjoyed during their long decades of power: a TV studio, a Senate-owned printing house that made color brochures for them (Democrats only got black and white ones), and a “Brunomobile.” And with every rock lifted up, dozens of squinting government employees are unearthed.

The new Democratic Senate majority, for their part, are acting “shocked, shocked” that all this stuff existed… it was either “far off campus” (seven miles out of town) or on Long Island. You know, in darkest Africa and all. Now I’m intrigued to know what sort of sweet setups the Assembly Dems have.
