Republican Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava who dropped put of the New York 23rd Congressional District and then endorsed the Democrat apparently has had her feelings hurt and has been offered a spot in a Third Party.

Jude Seymour writes on that Assemblywoman Scozzafava’s feelings were hurt by Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman. Seymour quotes Assemblywoman Scozzafava saying, “There was no sense of compassion in this man at all… I know a lot of people that were hurt by the tone of the campaign that Mr. Hoffman ran.” Assemblywoamn Scozzafava said Hoffman never asked for he endorsement after she quit the race.

Seymour also writes that New York Independence Party Chairman Frank MacKay will invite Assemblywoman Scozzafava to, “carry his party as her main affiliation”. The Assemblywoman said she has no plans to change parties – but we have also seen her change her mind pretty quickly in the past.
