... but Berardelli put out zilch to anybody interested in the outcome of the Gallo-Akselrod Independence Party write-in primary case in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
The relative importance of pivot-points for Gallo would be weighted toward his getting the Independence line in his court case, rather than having a good fundraiser. Berardelli obviously has a bigger hand in the former than the latter, so one wonders why he's keeping his light under a bushel basket.
If Akselrod holds the Independence line through Gallo's last ditch court challenges, the buzz is that several social conservative Republicans will be pitching a Storobin-Akselrod ticket in their common EDs.
btw, "The question begs...": if things were going well for the Gallo-Berardelli team in court, wouldn't Berardelli be kvelling more about that and not so much about Gallo's fundraiser?
