MoveOn Ruse: We Stand Correct

Regarding yesterday's Ithaca Blog report on MoveOn and the NY Senate race: the results are in - correctly predicted here way ahead of time. See the forwarded message from MoveOn, just released:

Dear MoveOn member in New York,
We wanted to let you know, MoveOn won't be making an endorsement in the U.S. Senate Democratic primary. In voting over the last day, neither Hillary Rodham Clinton nor Jonathan Tasini garnered the two-thirds support from MoveOn members necessary for an endorsement. The margin in our online vote was 56 percent for Clinton and 44 percent for Tasini.
The MoveOn election effort in New York and across the country will stay focused on beating vulnerable Republican incumbents in House races—working to end one-party Republican rule in Washington.
Thanks to everybody who voted and look for more about how you can get involved.

Ithaca Blog referred Mr. Pariser to our article, and prediction, which could have saved him the trouble and shame.
