Dumbass of the Month Takes Aim At Cops....Again

Eliot Spitzer's running mate Sen. David Paterson (D - Harlem) is at it again.

In February, I nominated him for "dumbass of the week" for his introduction of a bill that would criminalize police officers who used deadly force. He has since apologized for that.

In March, I nominated him for "dumbass of the month" for introducing a bill for 14 straight years (1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001) that would legalize using force against police officers trying to make an arrest. He has since apologized for that.

Now he's behind a bill that would allow politicians to question police officers in cases of alleged misconduct. The bill would also allow a special prosecutor to be assigned to cases of alleged police brutality instead of the case going to district attorneys.

Politicans questioning police officers? Does that mean his bill would allow State Senator Ada Smith to interrogate cops? I guess her questioning police officers sure beats biting or trying to run over them instead.
I love New York.
