Newsday Spin Cycle Site Needs Full Disclosure

In a Newsday SpinCylcle piece today about the State Senate special election 'Balboni pick may speed third track' reporter William Murphy writes "Villages along the route oppose the project - and some village officials believe they lost their best chance of stopping it when they lost Balboni.
Those officials also note that Spitzer strongly supports Nassau Legis. Craig Johnson (D-Port Washington) against Nassau County Clerk Maureen O'Connell, a Republican, to succeed Balboni."
Johnson has allied himself with Spitzer's agenda," Mineola Mayor Jack Martins said in an interview. "I want somebody in the legislature who will represent the interests of the villages."
Newsday needs to be a little more clear about who is saying what and why. Even though Martins ran on the "New Line Party" for Mayor, he is a registered republican. And even though you can't tell by looking at her website or signs or commercials, O'Connell is the republican candidate.
Gee, who does Martins support?
