What'll it be, Joanne?

Maybe it's the ongoing federal investigation. Maybe it's the fact that their ideas don't work. Or maybe it's because their name is just a little misleading. It doesn't matter why the Democrats are running full-speed away from the Working Families Party; it just matters that at the statewide level, led by Andrew Cuomo, they are. But what about here in Rensselaer County?

We'd particular like to know about Joanne Yepsen, who's running for state senate. Yepsen hasn't made a peep about the WFP, presumably because she's been busy purging her website of mentions of how pleased she was to run on the Working Families Party line in 2007 and 2009, and presumably, how much she supports their platform and thinks their plan to tax the life out of upstate is just swell.

So what'll it be, Joanne? Will you be casting your lot again with the crazies this year? We're waiting.
