Quaglione dIsmisses Golden’s getting caught way off base in
a completely made-up 9/11 riff as “…HE
Here’s what Marty Golden said --- “…. A number of
them that drove the planes into the — 9-11 — into the building at World Trade
Center that killed 3,000 Americans — are you ready for this? They were in this
community, they lived here in Bay Ridge, they were visiting in this community….”
That’s not Golden’s mis-speaking ---
that is a 100% FAKE FACT --- the only question now is this: WAS JOHN QUAGLIONE
COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF THIS AS GOLDEN’S COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR --- Did
Quaglione not properly brief his boss for his WNYC interview by Brian Lehrer ?
According to the Brooklyn Paper, John Quaglione, described as “…. A rep from Golden’s office,” had said that his boss Marty Golden had mixed up the deadliest attack ever on American soil, one in which 2,996 people died, with the World Trade Center’s 1993 truck-bombing that killed six ( See “Pol made up Brooklyn’s 9-11 connection to defend Trump travel ban” by Max Jaeger, The Brooklyn Paper [http://www.brooklynpaper.com/stories/40/7/all-marty-golden-makes-up-brooklyn-terror-connection-2017-02-17-bk.html]).
Here’s the Quaglione money shot according to Max Jaeger of the Brooklyn Paper --- “…’He didn’t make it up, he mis-spoke,’ said chief of staff Quaglione [did John get a promotion and a raise because of this?].” The only problem in trying to credit Quagione’s lame excuse in any way is that his boss was recorded; and this is what Marty Golden said: “…. A number of them that drove the planes into the — 9-11 — into the building at World Trade Center that killed 3,000 Americans — are you ready for this? They were in this community, they lived here in Bay Ridge, they were visiting in this community…”
WHAT DID QUAGLIONE TELL GOLDEN & WHEN DID QUAGLIONE TELL HIM ? ? ?
Since Quaglione is now a declared candidate for the City Council, he needs to come clean to all the voters about his part in State Senator Martin Golden’s latest major flub about a major population in Quaglione’s hoped-for council district.
Don’t forget that Marty Golden was seen on almost every local and city-wide media outlet following the September 2016 Chelsea and New Jersey terrorist bombings, with other un-exploded bombs. That means that a strong anti-terrorist presentation is part of State Senator Marty Golden’s communications strategy; and THAT means John Quaglione was directly involved as Golden’s Communications Director. The unanswered questions are what, when and to what extent it's Quaglione's heavy hand behind the scenes.
