The Sunday New York Times Long Island edition had a story on the goings-on in the Nassau Legislature. Our "Judy-Jitsu" moniker for Presiding Officer Judy Jacobs move to counter the attack on her was mentioned in the article:
"Mr. Schmitt joined forces with two dissident Democrats, Roger Corbin and Lisanne Altmann, in an attempt to unseat Ms. Jacobs as presiding officer and replace her with Mr. Corbin.
Ms. Jacobs fought back with a complicated counterstrategy that, oddly enough, depended on her dropping out of the Democratic Party, at least on paper. (One blogger called the tactical switch "a Judy-Jitsu.")"
