Can you believe it?
A small band of over –the-hill misfits beat the fourth largest corporation in the world and saved their town. Congratulations to all my readers and all those people who have supported and commented on issues related to wind development and wind corruption. February 26 will long be remembered as the date in our history where the redcoats were sent packing the third time in 250 years!
Thank you all!

Following last Tuesdays election Republican John Byrne held a 117 vote lead over incumbent Democrat Addie Russell in the 116th Assembly District race.
As a result incumbent Russell has brought in TOP GUN lawyer , attorney Frank G. Hoare, from Albany with the appointed task of invalidating 111 seasonal absentee votes from Cape Vincent.
"We'll be looking at those votes. There's some issues involved in that and whether folks have a connection to the district - that's what the law says. You need to have a connection to the place where you vote, so we'll be looking at that," said Hoare.
In 2013, Frank G.Hoare was called in to represent a downstate Democratic candidate in protecting the legitimacy of absentee ballots, a situation similar to what Republican Challenger John Byrne is faced with today.
In this earlier, downstate case attorney Hoare defended, many of the objections raised over absentee ballots that pertained to the residency of voters. The court ruled in Hoare’s favor that the challenger failed to “provide sufficient evidence to overcome the presumption that the individuals who cast the ballots in question resided where they were registered.” (Court ruling)
To put it plainly, Hoare’s client prevailed because the opponent challenging the absentee ballots could not prove that they did not meet the residency requirement.
This means that Hoare knows better than anyone that he will be required to prove that 111 voters did not live in Cape Vincent for 30 days. Ha! Good luck Hoare and Russell. You stand a better chance of jumping hand-in-hand over the moon than having those ballots rejected by the court.
