Pirro picks Bloomberg over Pataki

AG candidate Jeanine Pirro has done little to impress anyone this year, but she is playing Bloomberg's gambit and has come out in favor of fully funding New York City schools. It's the position you'd expect her to take - after all, she's basically saying she's going to follow the law - except it puts her on record as joining Mayor Bloomberg in critizing Governor Pataki and the Republican Senate for opposing full funding for New York City schools.

Given Pirro's spotty track record in the run-up to this year's election, this probably isn't an encouraging sign for Bloomberg. I guess Pirro had to do something to get in the news that wasn't forgetting her speech or switching races, but it's hard to see Jeanine Pirro leading her party to do the right thing and it's easier to see Joe Bruno blowing her off or seeking retribution.
