Nassau's Schmitt makes nice, survives

For the Republican presiding officer of the Nassau County Legislature, biting lemons and agreeing with Democratic Legis. David Denenberg are about equally agreeable.


On Monday, he didn’t bite any lemons, as far as we know.

So that grimace meant he was agreeing with Denenberg.

“You know how painful that is to me,” Schmitt said.

“I want it highlighted in the record,” Denenberg said.

The reason for their agreement was as fleeting to the memory as the reason for most of their fights.
