The "Golden Faction's" big problem now & in the future >>> James McClelland’s "on the record" court testimony indicating that he did a robo-call in advance of the 2015 GOP convention fraudulently stating that Golden & Ghorra’s folks had the “official proxies” --- AND --- then admitting >>> there’s no such thing as “official proxies”
Trial briefs are due in just over a week in the Kings County Supreme Court election case presently pending before Hon. Edgar Walker, JSC. That case essentially pits what the court called “the Golden faction” against the mainstream Brooklyn GOP, which the court called “the Eaton faction.” It needs to be noted that “the Golden faction” is made up of NYS Senate staffers, Conservative Party activists and other Golden supporters and they are pushing for Ted Ghorra, a lawyer lined-up behind Marty Golden, to be County Chairman instead of the duly elected Chairman Arnaldo Ferraro.
Although those close to the parties still think that the outcome of the trial is quite problematic, due to Judge Walker’s prejudiced view of who should have won at the 2015 Republican organizational convention following the selection of the 2015 GOP County Committee during the 2015 organizational primary.
One of the key errors that Walker seems to have already made in this case is referring to the Members of the KCRP County Committee as “voters” – when their actual status is elected & certified party officials, delegates and representatives.
WHAT HAS GOLDEN & GHORRA WORRIED
Even though the key operators in the Golden faction think that they have a “win” in the case in front of Judge Walker, they are VERY WORRIED about what Marty Golden’s staffer, and Queens County Republican nabob, James McClelland testified to in court during the case. They know that regardless of what Justice Edgar Walker does with it, the record of that testimony will be put before the Justices of the Appellate Division.
In essence, State Senator Golden’s staffer McClelland testified that he had engaged in a fraudulent scheme to solicit super-ceding proxies to the 2015 convention from Members of the 2015-2016 GOP County Committee by referring to the proxies to be tendered by Marty Golden’s representatives as the “Official Proxies” of the Republican Party. McClelland’s testimony also showed that he did know that there are no such things as “Official Proxy” forms.
That testimony is very far reaching and threatening to Golden and his peeps on several levels of judicial scrutiny, both state and federal.
