Will/Liam McCabe’s campaign for City Council isn’t even off the ground --- yet --- some of his detractors are already dumping warm stuff onto him --- BR Dems do a quick little E-mail hit on a probable GOP candidate for City Council
Don’t those folks know that none of the folks, who think that they count, cares one wit about that warm old stuff --- because THEY have penciled-in McCabe to be their “Dog” in the 2017 race for City Council --- and that's all there is to it
When I get a brick over the transom wrapped in a well-known bunch of media sites/cites, I know that somebody is sending a message….. In this case, I suspect that the message is intended to be more for Mr. McCabe and those close to him than it is for me.
Quite simply the meat and potatoes of the BR Dems E-mail is the following list of seven (7) negative articles about Liam McCabe:
Brooklyn staffer for Staten Island congressman Grimm arrested http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2012/02/brooklyn_staffer_staten_island.html
Grimm aide arrested for 'assaulting' son | New York Post

That list was accompanied by this ominous notation: “This is just from a quick google search and does not include [multiple additional possible record & source searches]…. Imagine a mailing or two with these to district….” ( Sent from: Bay Demsbayridgedemsrock@gmail.com).
MY TWO CENTS WORTH
First, I am a little miffed that "whoever" at the BR Dems sent this to me didn’t know that >>> most, if not all, of the above sources and/or issues had been mentioned on this blog in the past, and actually much of it has been debated here in many, many responsive comments about McCabe and his [hi]story.
Second, as a bit of relevant background, I don’t think that material like this is likely to influence candidate McCabe and the folks around him. You see, to many in the current GOP and Conservative Party leadership, Will/Liam McCabe is not intended to be a serious winning candidate in the 2017 races for the City Council.
No, Liam McCabe isn’t supposed to win anything, except a possible GOP primary against Bob Capano. The “new elders” in the GOP and the “old elders” in the Conservative Party have gotten behind a deal between Marty Golden and some Democrat for that Democrat to become the next councilman from Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, and some pieces of other neighborhoods. [But, more about that at another time….] The long and the short of it is that some local folks "that think who they are" want the local political race in 2017 to be a “boat race” --- not a real horserace to the finish….. At whatever kind of race you think 2017 might be or become, one thing "you can take to the bank" is that Liam McCabe is intended to be the “dog” in the race --- not “underdog” --- just “dog” ( you know like those mangy strays he says he cares so much about)…..
