The New York Post‘s “Page Six” today reported on the worst-kept secret in Albany: the romantic entanglement between State Senators Jeffrey Klein (the Bronx & Westchester) and Diane Savino (Brooklyn & Staten Island).
“Oh my God, you guys,” one State Senator was (not) quoted as saying. “I see them smoking cigarettes together and eating together and everything! During third period I heard they’re going steady, but I also heard that they’ve been holding hands for, like, oh my God, weeks. Like a long time.”
Some politicos are crying foul – seriously – because Savino joined Klein’s Independent Democratic Caucus which arose from dissatisfaction with John Sampson’s leadership. For one, they probably have it backwards: the romantic entanglement more likely stems from shared views, not the other way around. More importantly, any politician in Albany citing a conflict of interest because the two are an item is like Charles Manson shouting “murderer!” across the prison cafeteria at someone eating a piece of chicken.
Most annoying of all? The pet name given to the couple – “Klavino.”
It’s 2011. Can we stop with that combining names bulls*** already?
