Another link between State Senator Martin Golden and Preet Bharara's Ongoing Investigation(s) of Republican State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and his son Adam


Attorney John Ciampoli, who has done his share of legal work for the benefit of Brooklyn State Senator Marty Golden over the years, is now being looked at as a key or instrumental figure in the approval process for a questionable contract to a company called  ---  AbTech

Nassau County and its County Executive not the targets of the federal probe  ---   they are  "cooperating"



The former Nassau County attorney John Ciampoli, now works closely with Dean Skelos in Mr. Ciampoli's current capacity as Senate legislative counsel. In that capacity, he also interacts with State Senator Golden and his staff.

JOHN CIAMPOLI'S HISTORY

"...   Ciampol [ whose] officially designated role in approving the AbTech deal—the county attorney [of Nassau County] is charged with reviewing contracts—has not previously been mentioned in news reports on the Skelos investigation....  Ciampoli had previously worked for years a top election lawyer for the Senate's Republican majority before he was hired to the county attorney post in 2010 by Nassau County executive Ed Mangano.  ***   The storm-cleanup contract with AbTech was approved by Nassau County in June 2013.   ***   Ciampoli was terminated by Mangano in November 2013 with no public explanation, and re-hired by Senate Republicans shortly afterward, in December 2013, as counsel to legislative services in the Senate...." (See "Senate G.O.P. aide tied to scrutinized Skelos deal" by Laura Nahmias, 4/21/15, [http://www.capitalnewyork.com/article/albany/2015/04/8566363/senate-gop-aide-tied-scrutinized-skelos-deal]).


MANGANO AND NASSAU COUNTY GOVERNMENT NOT TARGET OF FEDERAL INVESTIGATION  ---  COOPERATING FULLY 

According to the Capitol New York article, it was reported last week that [Nassau Executive] Mangano testified before a federal grand jury last week as part of an ongoing federal inquiry. A spokesman has said  that Mangano and Nassau County government are not targets of the investigation, and that  they are cooperating with fully.

It sounds truthful to me. What portion of this story is made up?

These politicians like Skelos that keep putting relatives on the payroll and then claim ignorance remind me of Johnny Roast Beef from Goodfellas when asked about the Pink Cadillac.
"Its in my mothers name", he would say.

Remember how it ended for Johnny

Excuse me, do not for a moment categorize the former Secretary of State, former Senator from New York and the inevitable nominee for the 2016 Democratic ticket for president with your Tammany Hall thug-like Republican South Brooklyn cronies. Not one of them is even worthy to say her name.

You are obnoxiously annoying sometimes.

RESPONSE: THE "HILLARY ISN'T THUG-LIKE; SHE ISN'T EVEN THUG-LITE" EDITION

--- BUT HER BRUT FORCE CAMPAIGN AND HER SLIME-SLINGING SURROGATES SURE ARE THUGGISH

LOOK AT HOW THEY'RE GOING AFTER THAT FINE INVESTIGATIVE WRITER, PETER SCHEIZER --- WHY, IT'S EXACTLY LIKE MARTY GOLDEN'S CROWD AND HOW THEY COME AFTER ME, SOMETIMES --- INTELLECTUALLY IT'S THOROUGHLY THUGGISH --- AND I THINK IT'S THIS-QUIETINGLY THIS-GUSTING

I'm done.....

The following is a corrected version of my original comment of April 22, 2015 at 11:10 AM

RESPONSE, COMMENTARY & QUERY - ACTUALLY A FEW QUESTIONS: THE "WHY IS MARTY GOLDEN .... ? ? ?" EDITION

OR, IN PART --- "WHY ARE MARTY GOLDEN'S FOLKS SO MUCH LIKE HILLARY CLINTON'S ?"

WHY ISN'T MARTY ASKING THAT DEAN SKELOS RESIGN ? --- OVER ALL, MARTY'S NOT VERY CONSISTENT ABOUT THE INVESTIGATIONS-INDICTMENT THING AND ASKING FOR RESIGNATIONS

WHY ISN'T MARTY AND HIS STAFF SAYING THAT HE/THEY IS/ARE "COOPERATING" WITH PREET BHARARA'S INVESTIGATORS --- LIKE NASSAU'S MANGANO AND HIS PEOPLE


In 2009, Marty Golden was calling on State Senator Monserrate to resign like former GOP Senate Leader Bruno did, because he was too distracted dealing with his legal problems to adequately serve his constituents. In 2013, Marty Golden was formaly calling on Brooklyn GOP Leader Craig Eaton to resign at a time when there was nothing that really connecting Eaton to the Smith-Halloran investigation and indictments. At that time Golden was more than open about his communicaions with Federal Prosecutor Preet Bharara. Why, now that his majority leader, Dean Skelos is so near to being actually indicted, has Marty Golden not called for his resignation like former GOP Senate Leader Bruno did or like Golden had asked Eaton to do ? It seems to me, that isn't very consistent.

Next, it seems that the Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is deeply involved in the investigation of the corruption charges against NY Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos. Nonetheless, a spokesperson has announced that Mangano and his folks are not a target of Preet Bharara's investigations AND MANGANO AND HIS FOLKS ARE COOPERATING.

There has been no similar announcements from either State Senator Golden nor any of the usual Golden folks. Thus far, that even includes Golden's high-end criminal defense attorneys. Nobody on Golden's side of the fence has uttered anything like the clarion message coming from Mangano and company --- Why is that ?

MARTY GOLDEN'S FOLKS TRY TO DEFEND HIS "TURF" THE WAY HILLARY CLINTON'S FOLKS TRY TO DEFEND THEIRS --- ATTACK THE MESSENGER --- IGNORE THE MESSAGE
Last, and take this from somebody that has ACTUAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE FACTS. --- Whenever any of Marty Golden's staff or routine supporters comment on my blog's Marty Golden postings, they pretty much do it the same way that the Hillary Clinton people do it when "commenting" about Hillary and my Hillary Clinton postings. Marty's and Hillary's staff and supporters both attack the messenger, either me, my blog or comment-makers unfavorable to them; but they never get around to refuting very much about what actually has been posted about either Marty or Hillary. To me that's quite a similarity. -- How proud they must be of such a kinship.
