Besides costing a lot for a record low voter turnout, here's another runoff election fun fact: Quite a few Dem lawmakers and politicians didn't vote! The Daily News reports that among the no-shows (or those who couldn't get their absentee ballot acts together) were State Senate Majority Leader Pedro Espada Jr., State Senator Eric Adams and William Scarborough, and Assemblyman Felix Ortiz. The Citizens Union's Dick Dadey said of Espada, "He craves respect as a Senate leader but shows disdain for democracy by not voting."
