The term is usually used in contrast with machine-affiliated Regular Democrats. Reform Democrats are generally associated with the good government traditions that arose out of the progressive movement of the early 20th century, and are usually, but not always, on the left wing of the Democratic Party.The lines between anti-machine Reform Democrats and pro-machine Regular Democrats are not always clear: often, once reformers achieve office they take advantage of patronage to establish a machine in their own right. An example of this is the rise of the "Reform machine" of in the wake of his triumph over the more traditional machine of Meade Esposito in Brooklyn, New York, in the 1980s. Although the term has somewhat fallen out of use since the 1970s, it still has some currency in Greater New York, such as the Hudson County Reform Democratic Organization in New Jersey. One of the best-known Reform Democrat clubs is the Village Independent Democrats, based in Greenwich Village, which toppled Carmine de Sapio and the might Tammany Hall. (en)
