An Assembly Seat Just Opened Up 

I have a feeling this Assemblyman will have a hard time being re-elected:

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - Thinking he was sending an e-mail to an aide, Assemblyman Willis Stephens instead sent a note to nearly 300 constituents, making the following comment on their listserv: "Just watching the idiots pontificate."

In the message, meant for aide Beth Coursen, Stephens wrote that he subscribes to the Brewster-based online discussion group to monitor area happenings, but he doesn't post messages.


The accidental note went out early Monday morning. Within an hour, Stephens sent another e-mail apologizing for the first one.

"To all who read and post on this group, I honestly enjoy reading most of what is exchanged on this site and do not direct my indiscreet characterizations to anyone in particular or to the group in general," he wrote. "In fact, now I most closely resemble the type of poster I described."

Assemblyman Stephens also was soon found to be posting resumes on and local job search boards after realizing he'll soon be out of his current one.
