A day after deciding he would caucus with Republicans, Senator-elect Simcha Felder was ripped by the Democratic leader of his home county, who said Felder’s decision was “a disgrace.”Come on, Seddio. You really didn't see this one coming? Anyway, Felder should be happy caucusing with the homophobes and Likudniks in the GOP, seeing as he's of that ilk himself.
Felder, a former New York City councilman from Brooklyn, announced yesterday that he would sit with the GOP, putting the Republicans within one seat of maintaining their majority with paper ballots set to be counted next week in two races that were too close to call.
A registerred Democrat, Felder never committed to sitting with the Senate Democratic conference.

David Storobin – which also means Felder’s entire campaign was a lie.”
