Wearing his other hat, Kings County Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar says that --- “… Bob [Capano], who spent tens of thousands of dollars to come in a distant third with only 579 votes [in the Republican Primary], will have no effect on the November results…”
For your reading pleasure and to amuse yourself using both
hands, I have included the segment of JK’s latest
opinion piece in and for the >>> Brooklyn Reporter <<<
it specifically talked about Bob Capano'
Well, here goes: “…. Bob Capano was a Republican, and as a Republican candidate for City Council he made the claim that he was the only candidate who had always been a Republican. He also indicated that he would support the winner of the Republican Party primary. He even showed up at John Quaglione’s victory party where he spoke, pledging his support for John…. That was then…. Bob, who spent tens of thousands of dollars to come in a distant third with only 579 votes, will have no effect on the November results. But that is not the point I wish to make…. Bob has since enrolled in the Reform Party. So much for his impeccable Republican credentials. As far as him supporting the winner of the Republican primary, and his appearance and statements at the Bay Ridge Manor in support of John primary night, well, those went out the window too…. The failure of candidates for public office to keep their word is what I find troubling. I have known Bob for a long time. During that time, all he ever wanted to do was run for office. This was his third chance, having been supported by the Brooklyn Republican and Conservative Parties twice and losing in landslides both times…. Then he moved to Staten Island and remained there for five years, emerging at an address in Brooklyn a few months ago. Once again, the voters saw through him and the results are what I have indicated…. Bob has every right to run as a Reform Party candidate. He does not have the right to change his story around to suit his ambitions whenever he feels like it…. This is one of the things I dislike most about a business I have worked within my entire life — candidates that are all about themselves, candidates that care little for the community and even less for those who might have bested them and are going forward carrying the banner that they wished to carry…. Sore loser is the common term. But I think it is quite a bit worse. It really goes to the core of what the person is about.” (See “Common Sense: Trump says ‘no deal’ ” by Jerry Kassar, 10/20/17, Brooklyn Daily/ Opinion [http://brooklynreporter.com/story/common-sense-trump-says-no-deal/]).
As one of my favorite frenemies was wont to post on his blog at the time --- “THE QUESTION BEGS…” --- in this instance, what motivated Jerry Kassar to highlight Bob Capano’s run on the Reform Party line ??? --- what does Kassar expect that this part of his column to accomplish ??? [I know, that’s two separate questions begging].
BTW, an interesting all alone drinking game for those of you out there who think that tippling all alone is perfectly OK --- pour a jigger-full of Irish Whiskey down your gullet every time you find a grammatical error in Jerry Kassar’s “Common Sense” column.
