Taking Sides

The Times reports on an interesting decision out of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in Albany yesterday. The court decided that political parties are allowed to spend money to directly influence primaries in other parties' primaries.

Election lawyers said that the ruling opens the door to major and minor parties much more actively taking sides in one another’s primaries, and even to the Republican and Democratic parties trying to influence each other’s contests.
