The district is going to be eliminated in the 2012 reapportionment (NY lost two House seats). Weprin was the most inept candidate imaginable (he'd lose an election to a Girl Scout if it was for a Boy Scout office).

Turner will have his insignificant year in office, try to run for Senate and get his lunch eaten. Meanwhile, he makes no difference to the balance of power, and the residents of the district knew this going in.
* deliberate terminology to invoke one of the prejudices of said district.
