Critic tags Nassau's Schmitt in past 'stormtrooper' jibe

Democrat John Rennhack has an interesting note on his "Nassau GOP Watch" blog site. Reacting to the recent tension between legislative majority leader Peter Schmitt and Legis. Kevan Abrahams, in which Abrahams apologized for his statement that Schmitt runs the place like a Nazi camp, Rennhack writes:

"The thing that makes this whole situation a bit of hooey from Schmitt's side is that 4 years ago, Schmitt said of CE Tom Suozzi, "He’s run this county like a stormtrooper for the last few years.” And for some reason I'm not seeing Schmitt making an allusion to the white-armored Star Wars characters.

Rennhack's full posting is here.
