Qui Perdit?

As Speaker Shelly Silver teeters on the edge of irrelevancy, it's useful to think about who loses if he topples over. (1) NYSUT, I would think. SS would probably have been the wall that blocked the governor's proposed "reforms." Who's going to play that role now? Not Cathy Nolan, god knows. (2) Maybe Tom DiNapoli, whom Silver set on the Comptroller's throne and who doesn't seem to have many friends in the executive branch. (3) Fake Sheldon Silver, often a fun read. Who else? Maybe they have some ideas at The Albany Project.

I'm guessing the Working Families Party loses, and to some extent Bill deBlasio loses.

I haven't had a sense in a while that Tom DiNapoli is in trouble, though I hated his original ascent.
