POLL: Does Report of Ball's Involvement in Support Letters Matter to You?

Take our poll and tell us in the comments section below this story.

(R, C—Patterson) is pushing to keep his seat in the New York State Senate, and one of the ways he's doing that is telling his supporters what to say in letters to the editor.

That's according to this story, written by Marcela Rojas, on LoHud.com. Rojas writes that The Journal News received an email—seemingly by mistake—from Ball requesting his staff members obtain very specific support letters from different sorts of constituents.

. He and his opponent, Justin Wagner (D—Croton on Hudson), over an email that bore Wagner's signature, but allegedly came from the Ball camp.

Well said Nora. I'd like to see Wacky Wagner accomplish half of what Ball did, but I'm voting for Ball. People here have nothing better to do.

What does intimate with your views mean? What does that mean "Shirley"? Who cares if Ball wanted the letters of his supporters published? Did he do anything illegal? No! Good enough for you? Still, you act like you're in high shcool.."Intimate with our views". Who writes like that? Yup - My credentials are better, you write like you are in a high school clique.

Really Kevin Barber? He is the only one who responds to residents and actually gets things done. Here, try yourself. Leave a message with each guy. See who responds. Right. Only Ball does. Get an education and a clue.
