Walsh snubs Spitzer
Like we should be surprised:
"I don't believe there was any type of real intent to ensure that all members could be there, or that there was going to be any detailed discussions," said Rep. James Walsh's spokesman Dan Gage.
"There will be a day when the governor will need the vote of U.S. Rep. Walsh or Tom Reynolds or John McHugh or Randy Kuhl," added Gage, naming other New York Republicans who are adjusting to life in the minority party in Congress.
Walsh, R-Onondaga, could not attend because he had a prescheduled meeting for his 2008 re-election campaign, Gage said. Walsh narrowly won re-election last month in a race against a former aide to Rangel.
Some advice for Jim Walsh 1) Don't let your press hack threaten the Governor-elect 2) Don't snub the the guy who 40% of the people voted for you also voted for.
