Russell Gallo resumes longtime feud with one of the handful of Orthodox Jewish activists in the Brooklyn GOP — Fight over getting the GOP line for Ben Akselrod in 2014 goes back to Brooklyn GOP endorsement meeting — Fight with Hayon goes back much further
According to Gallo, “Hayon is and always will be the Jewish Al Sharpton....”
Russell Gallo came out of his corner throwing haymakers like these: “This November there will be candidates on both the Republican and Democratic lines for the assembly seat in Brooklyn's 45th. Steven Cymbrowitz (D) will be on the Democratic column and Ben Akselrod (D) will be on the Republican column. *** How can this be you ask? *** “...In this instance however, there are a couple of political whores, that claim to be Republican, that helped secure the Republican line for a Democrat through an opportunity to ballot petition that allowed people (about 60 of them...) to write in a candidate's name on primary day. This form of voting is fraught with errors and fraud....” (See “Brooklyn's 45th Assembly District: Two Democrats on the Ballot and a Political Whore Run Amok” by Russell Gallo, 9/28/14, Behind Enemy Lines — Blogging-From-Within [http://www.behindenemylinesradio.us/2014/09/brooklyns-45th-assembly-district-two.html?m=1]). From there Mr. Gallo went on to discuss the key players in the 45th A.D.: Democrat Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz, Democrat Assembly Candidate Ben Akselrod and Orthodox Jewish GOP activist Joseph Hayon — all three in caustic terms and less than laudatory tones. The pinnacle of Gallo’s pugnacious pejorative pasting was preserved for Mr. Hayon — “Joseph Hayon is a RINO and a political whore; among other things....”
The new blog looks a lot like its predecessor the “Brooklyn GOP Radio -Official- Show Blog” ....
Reached for a comment, about the new blog and Gallo’s post, Mr. Hayon seemed unruffled and actually responded by pointing out, in a matter-of-fact way, that enough good Republican voters voted for Mr. Akselrod for him to win the GOP “write-in” primary in the 45th A.D. However, with all the brouhaha over his failing to get the GOP Wilson-Pakula before petitioning, and his poor showing in the recent Democratic Primary, it isn’t clear now whether Ben Akselrod will file an acceptance and take the GOP line after all. Another item that Hayon wanted to comment upon was this criticism by Gallo: “Mr. Hayon does not support Congressman Michael Grimm or State Senator Marty Golden; both Republicans running for reelection this year.” Hayon’s reply was again sort of matter-of-fact, “I thought Gallo didn’t support either one of them himself.”
Ah, it's almost like the old "...Jig is Up Atlas" days. Good times, good times !
