Kevin Marshall Now Acting Lieutenant Governor; Holds Tie-Breaking Vote


TROY, NY – In response to the current situation in the New York State Senate and in accordance with recent claims by Senate President pro tempore Pedro Espada (D-Bronx), Troy resident Kevin Marshall has declared that he is now acting Lieutenant Governor of New York State and holds the tie-breaking vote in the Senate.

Mr. Marshall (registered to vote as a Democrat in the Empire State) makes this claim in light of the claim made by Sen. Espada this week in regards to being able to strike two votes simultaneously and break any potential tie in the chamber.

The New York State Constitution does not indicate a line of succession for the office of Lieutenant Governor, a seat that was vacated when David Paterson became Governor after the resignation of Eliot Spitzer. This week, Senator Espada took that to mean that he could legally declare himself Lieutenant Governor and vote not once, but twice. Taking that logic into account, Mr. Marshall (D-Troy) has now declared himself Lieutenant Governor.

“I had no idea all you you could declare yourself Lieutenant Governor and give yourself magical powers,” said Marshall in response to the news that he was now acting Lieutenant Governor. “I would like to thank the Senator for providing me with such valuable information as well as all the smiles he’s brought to so many faces in recent weeks with his antics.”

Mr. Marshall is a citizen of the United States who has never been arrested or even investigated for any improprieties involving election laws or domestic abuse.

    It is so refreshing to see democracy in action in both New York State and Iran. I would also like to point out that your terrible eyesight gives you a leg-up on the acting lt governor, as that is definetly an important qualification in qualifying for the position. Persons with disabilites have finally shattered that glass ceiling. May the blind continue to lead the blind!
