“If they do not have provisions, they will propose ways of expelling members for actions of this type,” Arzt said.

Chazerim are in fact clean animals as long as it doesn´t come to eating them! But political trixers/fixer are NEVER clean. It doesn´t matter if they have or have not anyting on their heads. They only care for what to have in their pockets!

I'm a Republican & I don't blame the Dems. He uses all their resources & within a week of getting electing he's switching allegiance (even if his motives seem to be good.) Not surprised they are furious! Typical indecisive, self serving politician. He should have run on the R ticket, but I suppose they didn't want him to run against Storobin in a primary. Will this be a record for staying in a party?

He beat the democratic maschine at therer own game. The only way to get elected in a one party state (like the communist systems) is to run on there ticket. NY can be proud of there political system.

How do they 'expel someone' from their party? I have no idea what that even means (in NY), unless they mean canceling his voter registration as a member of the Democratic party, which they can't. What are they going to do, not invite him to their meetings?

Oh! I thought the Dems were the Party of "reaching across the isle" willing to settle to get things done?
Kidding. Knew the Dems are animals.

I imagine he will be cut of from the county and state party resources and employees that assist Democratic candidates' election and reelection campaigns.

You might be right. But, I doubt he was drawing very heavily on those resources, anyway; he's built up quite an organization on his own.
