2016 Election Recap!

If there was one word to describe the 2016 election, it would probably be stunning.  With 100% of the precincts reporting, it’s shaping up to be a very good night for Mike Gatto, a dude who’s not even on the ballot.

For anyone too stupid to know why this matters, Laura Friedman was Mike Gatto’s favored candidate in the race to replace him in the 43rd district.  She beat the shit out of Ardy Kassakhain, Anthony Portantino’s bitch.  Portantino and Gatto may have never faced off directly as we all assumed they would, but their fight — and by extension, the fight for the future of the state party — has raged on through several notable proxies.

That other proxy would be Angela Rupert, who even though she lost, gave Adrin Nazarian (aka Dildo Assmouth) a real run for his money considering her candidacy was a late-breaking write-in hail marry.

Now both Friedman and Rupert have established themselves as viable progressive voices in the party.  Portantino may have won his race, but it’s hard to not interpret these results a referendum on his vision for the Gatto-phobic future of the party.
