Just like Albany?

Newsday's blog has an interesting item today:
Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi was speaking to a group of Baldwin residents Tuesday night and asked for a show of hands on some options for a plot of vacant land.

“Can I vote twice?” one woman asked Suozzi.

“Only if you live in Long Beach,” Suozzi answered.

He returned to the theme later, saying without any apparent provocation that his father asked to be buried in Long Beach because, “he wanted to remain active in politics after his death.”

Albany Catholic remembers stories of dead Democrats voting in Albany. William Kennedy, in his wonderful book "Oscar" comments on the practice: Just 'cause they're dead don't make them Republicans. (Or something to that effect.)
