Hearing that one or more former employees of the Rensselaer County Board of Elections will hold a press conference TUESDAY to drop some new bombshells about Dem Boss Tom Wade allegedly extorting campaign contributions from employees at the Board of Elections. The employees will ask for the District Attorney to investigate the shakedowns, which are said to have happened in late 2006.

Also hearing that letters have been sent to federal authorities alerting them to the shakedowns. We are trying to land a copy of the correspondence and will post as soon as, or when, we get a copy.

Top county Dems are nervous about the Wade extortion allegations, mainly because all the employees who got pinched sent their checks at the same time – one week before Christmas, a bizarre time for political contributions – and for nice round numbers.

More to come tomorrow…
