The Watertown Daily Times' Bob Gorman has an interesting take on Dede Scozzafava's troubled run for Congress.
She's been a public servant for years.
She's helped many people.
Why aren't those people helping her now?
Here's what I don't get: For the past decade, the Republican Scozzafava has stood up for every women's rights, victims' rights and children's rights legislation in this state. Her fingerprints are everywhere. But now that she is running for Congress, you can't find one member of CASA, CAVA, Darwin, Athena, victims assistance, university women or even one of our myriad Watertown book clubs that will publicly stand up for her.
We know who Doug Hoffman's new friends are - Sarah Palin and Dick Armey. Where are Dede's old friends?
