From Ken Lovett, NY Daily News:
ALBANY — Earlene Hooper, the hotheaded state Assembly deputy speaker, hit a new low last week–getting bounced from the annual mock session held by the chamber’s legislative interns after an ugly tantrum left one woman in tears.
Hooper (D-Nassau County) attended the fake session, like many lawmakers do, to support her own intern. But she lost her well-known temper after she heard another intern planned a parliamentary procedure to get a bill to the floor. For reasons not immediately clear, Hooper yelled at the intern and threatened her with a poor grade, a source said.
