From the NY Times:
The New York City Independence Party voted overwhelmingly on Sunday to endorse Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg for a third term after he vowed, in private and public remarks delivered just before the vote, to try to establish nonpartisan elections in the city.
If re-elected, Mr. Bloomberg — a Democrat-turned-Republican who dropped all party affiliations two years ago — would be the first independent candidate elected to lead the city.
Um, haven't we "been there, done that" already? Voters rejected that overwhelmingly years back. And if you want non-partisan elections, why do you have a party in the first place?
The "Independence Party" is a joke.
