Amid myriad instances of technical problems, Frenemies’ blogcast gives some details of GOP Exec Board flap with State Senator Golden’s representative and staffer, Anthony Testaverde

RUSS GALLO CALLS OUT RINOs INSIDE THE BROOKLYN GOP   —   STATE SENATOR GOLDEN'S STAFFER AND REPRESENTATIVE AT BROOKLYN GOP EXECUTIVE MEETING, ANTHONY TESTAVERDE, SAYS THAT HE WAS PERSONALLY BEING ATTACKED AND THREATENED BY GALLO’S REMARKS IN SHOUTING MATCH WITH GENE BERARDELLI 

GALLO AND BERARDELLI SUM-UP THIS WEEK’S BROOKLYN GOP RADIO PROGRAM BY SAYING THAT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO “CLEAN UP” THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAN TO WIN CONGRESSIONAL, STATE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS IN 2014


After repeated “Technical Difficulties” announcements, Gene Berardelli and Russell Gallo did a blogcast on Brooklyn GOP Radio concerning political corruption of various sorts in New York City (See “Rotten To the Core - NYC Corruption & More” hosted by Gene Berardelli and Russell Gallo, 3/26/14, Brooklyn GOP Radio [blogcast] [http://www.blogtalkradio.com/brooklyngopradio/2014/03/27/rotten-to-the-core--nyc-corruption-more]).

According to Russell Gallo, corruption is not just something that involves Democrats. He then noted that, based on a recent report, the Board of Elections is largely hiring Democrats to replace Republicans at the BOE; and all of it is with the approval and/or at the direction of Brooklyn GOP Commissioner Simon Shamoun, whom Gallo called the hand-picked puppet of State Senator Martin Golden.

There also was a very interesting mention of a confrontation that occurred at the Brooklyn GOP Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday at Brooklyn GOP Headquarters. After Russell Gallo began to complain about RINOs who have been weighing down the Brooklyn GOP, Golden staffer and State Committeeman Anthony Testaverde started to speak out (out of order and without recognition by the chair) against what Gallo was saying. At this point Gene Berardelli and Testaverde “took it outside.” When Berardelli asked Testaverde what he expected after all the stuff Golden and his allies had pulled in 2013, including a lawsuit that ran into 2014; Anthony Testaverde said that he was complaining about an attack that was being aimed at him, personally, and that he felt personally threatened by all of it.

SIDEBAR STORY: THE “WHEN RUSSELL GALLO GOES DOWN THE STREET, ALL THE BIRDIES GO ‘TWEET, TWEET, TWEET’ ” EDITION

As near as I can tell, the following “Tweet” by RG has been picked up and re-tweeted about a dozen times:

“ Russell C. Gallo @RussGallo
Anthony Testaverde (employee of @SenMartyGolden) melts down at @BklynGOP Executive Committee Meeting. Someone worried? #Primary ”

Testaverde doesn't understand that you can't have your cake and eat it too. Time for his wake up call.

He looks like he definitely has his cake and has been eating his and other's cakes as well...

Anthony Testaverde is a wannabe tough guy. He is lucky he didn't get straightened out the other night.

This isn't really about Anthony, is it ?

This just in:

Golden's team watching the Grimm petition numbers in Brooklyn very closely. Rumor has it they are extremely disappointing thus far.

Golden will like suffer the same fate as Grimm. No Republican support from the Brooklyn GOP establishment and their district leaders/clubs.

Grimm has a base on Staten Island to carry for him. Golden does not.

Let's see what happens next.

Head games ?

If you were serious, you would know that the Golden crowd has a plan to get him onto the ballot.

If there is another GOP candidate for the same state senate slot, and that candidate has enough GOP signatures to qualify for a line against Golden in the primary.... Well, you fill in the rest

A wise man once said that if a candidate or 4 collects sigs for that seat Golden would not survive a challenge to his sigs. #saps #dupes #frauds

Any such "other candidate(s)" would have to have sufficient signatures to survive challenges to his/her/their signatures and petition(s) for that "wise man's" scenario to come to pass.

If there are enough good signatures for at least one "other candidate" then it's "Katy bar the door" time for NYSSMG and "...all the kings horses and all the kings men..." you know the rest....
