Is "Bikelanegate" really going to be the long-awaited, real & true --- "GOLDENGATE" ???

News reports have indicated that Marty Golden's "My Life in the Bike Lane" auto-biographical adventure might have an official-looking component  ---  at least, that's what they say Mayor de Blasio is saying


In any case,  it looks like State Senator Marty G and his band of merry supporters, staffers and camp followers are all having something less than a perfect Christmas in this year of 2017  ---  with a promise that all of it will be carrying-over into the New Year of 2018.....   After all, didn't the Mayor say,  "...  I will certainly get back to you on that...."



The Daily News is reporting that  "...  City Hall is investigating after after a cyclist said state Sen. Marty Golden used a parking placard to impersonate a cop....  'I have to look into that,'   [Mayor] de Blasio said when asked whether [the City of New York] might revoke Golden’s [special] parking privileges. 'I know that when the issue came up, folks in my administration who work on those issues were following up. But I don’t know what’s been learned, so I will certainly get back to you on that' [the  Mayor said]...."  (See  "City Hall looking into cop-impersonating state Sen. Marty Golden"  by Jillian Jorgensen,  12/21/17,  Daily News/ Politics   [http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/city-hall-cop-impersonating-state-sen-marty-golden-article-1.3714734]).

DeBlasio and Marty have a good working relationship. Barkan and Gounardes are being played. Neither of them has a chance against Marty—and they’re the perfect suckers to consummate a deal Marty and the Democrats made a long time ago to run a strong opponent against him. Barkan will go out there to to talks about raise $10,000 and get slaughtered. Gounardes will go out there raise a lot more money obsess over LGBTQ issues and still get slaughtered. There could be a video of Marty and his driver beating the bicyclist with a bat it won’t change anything because of the weak opposition.

Anonymous said...

Cats lost by 12 percentage points citywide and only by a hundred votes in Brooklyn and beat Lhota on Golden’s home turf making a fool out of him and his crew. After Lhota got crushed in the general, Golden had to go begging to repair the relationship with Cats.

Anonymous said...

Golden did repair the relationship with Cats and that's exactly why Cats speaks with Marty and Ghorra regularly and will support the Senator..cats gives lip service to Eaton...Eaton will have no choice to sit on the sidelines on the 2018 state Senate race unless he wants to support marty

Anonymous said...

Cats has no relationship at all with Golden or Ghorra. If you believe that they have a relationship why isnt Ghorra or Golden at any of Cats events, dinners, etc. Look at Cats FB posts...they are nowhere to be found ever. I know for a fact that Cats still harbors anger towards Golden and Kassar for the Lhota race and Cats has a very long memory.

I think when Cats supports Golden in 2018 this issue is over...Golden, Ghorra, and Cats together for fundraisers, etc....I assure you and know for a fact Craig will not be anywhere to be found.

BACKFILL: THE "WAS THIS GOOD CRISIS MANAGEMENT ???" EDITION

DID JQ, GOLDEN'S PR GUY, OR KASSAR, HIS BOSS OF BOSSES, HAVE A HAND IN THIS ???

GOLDEN GOT >>> SHOT AT MORE << DURING HIS CBS TV INTERVIEW ABOUT THE "BIKERAGE" INCIDENT THAN HE DID ANY SUPPOSED "FIRING BACK"

NEWS FLASH: MARTY GOLDEN IS FAR FROM GLIB --- MOST OF THE TIME HE SUFFERS FROM VERBAL DIARRHEA


In my opinion, Marty Golden got by far the worst of it from the opening and closing remarks from a 2 CBS News, New York anchorwoman; and then during a Tony Aiello report, all of which was broadcast over a week ago (See "Marty Golden Fires Back After Being Accused Of Impersonating Police Officer" [by Tony Aiello], 12/15/17, CBS2 New York [http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/12/15/marty-golden-speaks-out/]).

Rather than glibly deflecting Tony Aiello's questions, obviously somebody in the Golden brain trust had advised our local State Senator to engage the reporter. The result was a torturous audio-video record of verbal diarrhea from the great communicator of Bay Ridge.

Golden started by trying to be dismissive of the whole bicycle lane thing, but then veered off and accused the cyclist of causing the whole thing. Golden, himself, described it as "road rage" by the cyclist, who pursued our NYSSMG for thirty (30) blocks as Golden and his driver "... tried to get away from him...."

Sadly for Marty, there was much more than that. For example, for some reason, Golden decided to defend himself when there was a mention of "new interest" in a backstory concerning his killing of the old lady many years ago with his SUV, a case that according to CBS, was settled by Golden's insurance company. Marty tried to excuse this vehicular homicide by saying the victim, an elderly woman, walked into the side of his "car" as he proceeded through a changed light. Also for some reason, he felt compelled to add that the woman had a stomach cancer, and that condition additionally contributed to her death. [It was previously mentioned on this blog that $750,000 was paid-out to settle this claim against Golden].

If all that was true, then I have some very simple follow-up questions for my state senator:

First, if, as NYSSMG claims, it was the bike-rider who had the road rage percolating; WHY DOES MARTY GOLDEN THINK THAT THE CYCLIST WAS SO ENRAGED ?????

Second, if the accident involving the old lady with cancer resulted only from her "walking" into the side of NYSSMG's SUV, why did she spend the rest of her life in the hospital being treated for her injuries from the accident, and why did an insurance company pay so much [$750,000] to settle the claim ?????

YOUR TACTIC OF KEEPING THE "1%" COMMENTARY GOING & GOING & GOING & GOING & GOING & GOING, LIKE THE ENERGIZER BUNNY, IS NOT EVEN GOOD NEGATIVE PR


Whoever keeps doing the "1%" meme, no doubt about BC, is making a hu-u-u-u-u-ge mistake.

1) It show that the "1%" commenter is so obsessed with Bobby C that his thinking about Bob is way beyond 1%, and is probably closer to 110-120 %; and

2) It greatly diminishes the expectations of the crowd that Bob needs to achieve much more than 1% for his candidates during his first stint as Reform Party Chairman.

December 23, 2017 at 10:34 AM is correct.......... it was quickly decided Quaglione could not handle this crisis (he was Marty's press secretary only for 19 years) and Kassar made the executive decision to outsource the media response to Hank "Take The Money And Run" Sheinkof

Gail, are you going to do the right thing and stand up for Richard Luthmann or NOT? Your one word post, "Luthmann" is not a very strong piece of journalism, even if you did get over a hundred people to make comments to it.

Luthmann, a former Reform Party activist, is being railroaded by the FEDS only to benefit the McMahons, who are worse than the MacBeths when it comes to grievous treachery.

At least let YOUR HANDFUL OF LOYAL READERS know what the New York Times has reported about this case. I know that your friend, ykw, has given you a lot more detailed information than that about the tell-all case Luthmann brought on behalf of Mike Pulizotto against people like Judge Judy McMahon, Staten Island DA Mike McMahon and THE MAN with a million stories to tell about the courts in Staten Island and around the State of New York, Denis Quirk

LET'S SAY THAT I AGREE WITH >>> ALL <<< OF THE COMMENT MAKERS ABOVE, BECAUSE THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF TRUTH IN EACH OF THE COMMENTS BY THE ANONYMOUS COMMENTERS CITED IN MY "TO" SUBHEADING --- IT'S ALSO A LOT EASIER THAT WAY, TALKING ABOUT WHAT I AGREE WITH AND NOT ALL THE OTHER STUFF THAT I DON'T

The Federal Indictment of Richard Luthmann really does look bad. And to paraphrase "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 3:57 PM": "Anyone who [is] foolish enough to align with Luthmann will [ ] have to pay the price. The case against [Luthmann looks] very strong and anyone active in SI circles knew that this [Luthmann] at the very least had felonious tendencies way before any indictments came out...."

Nonetheless, something about all of this stuff stinks to high heaven --- and that's the truth.

BTW, "... ANYONE ACTIVE IN SI CIRCLES KNEW... [LUTHMANN]... HAD FELONIOUS TENDENCIES...."
--- that one really needs some unpacking.

I'm not close to this case, and I haven't been fully briefed by any of my BSIs about it; but I do know that a prosecutor (in this case many state and federal prosecutors) has gone after a political activist with whom that prosecutor had lots of issues. First, the prosecutor tried using a "Special Prosecutor"; when there was a tough motion made by Luthmann concerning the "Special Prosecutor", then with the addition of some magical testimony of several bad actors, who had messes of their own to work-out, the case went over to the "Feds" and Luthmann was then arrested by them for what looks like some really bad things; and the SI prosecutor and everybody on Staten Island, including the SI Advance, said what a wonderful thing that it would be for DA McMahon and his lovely wife Judge Judy if Luthmann were stuck in the slammer for a very long time.

Yeah, this thing stinks to high heaven, alright; and what makes it stink even more is the Dennis Quirk part. You know, he's the same Dennis Quirk, who is asshole-buddies with State Senator Marty Golden.... OH, AND THE SAME DENNIS QUIRK, WHO TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY IN 2013 TO SALVAGE THE SOILED AND TATTERED CAREER OF PROSECUTOR CHARLES HYNES ALONG WITH BROOKLYN'S CONSERVATIVE BOSSES MIKE LONG AND JERRY KASSAR, AND LAWYER ARTIE AIDALA.

Everybody is missing one of the real sleazes in this story, John P. Connors, the hooked-up Staten Island attorney, who's got at least a little bit of a conflict of interest going on here from the look of things.
On the sleaze spectrum, though, John-John Connors is at the choirboy end, Judy and Mike McMahon are in the middle, and Dennis Quirk, well sleazy doesn't even begin to tell his story.

The charge isn't that Luthmann paid a stripper to have sex with McMahon; I believe the charge was that he offered that money for her to claim that McMahon attacked her.

To 7:22. The point is the patronage that KCCP can dole out is almost non existent compared to what it used to be. So that means that capable people no longer go to them for favors, they can’t even get any filing jobs at the DA Office anymore. People who can get stuff done no longer go to the Conservatives for favors. They got exposed in the Quaglione race when Kassar and Long put their full muscle behind Liam and he got crushed. It’s true they took over the Brooklyn GOP but there are no spoils left, so while Craig hangs with influential people who can get people real jobs in the real world Jerry has to feel important by promising part time jobs to people who couldn’t get hired at Walmart.

Even if Capano does not win..he will be a hero for getting the 50,000 votes to keep the Reform Party on the ballot throughout NYS for the next 4 years..now imagine if he gets more votes than the conservative candidate for Governor, then the Reform Party is ahead of the conservative party on all ballots across the state..now that would be big

Happy Belated Birthday Gubernatorial Candidate Capano. I can't wait to see you in debates against Cuomo around NYS. You will make Bay Ridge proud. Kassar and Ghorra will not be happy campers

RESPONSE: THE "SILLY TALK" EDITION

TO: SEVERAL OF THE COMMENTERS ABOVE

ISN'T ANY TALK ABOUT BOB CAPANO'S RUNNING AS THE REFORM PARTY'S OR ANYBODY ELSE'S CANDIDATE TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR AGAINST DEMOCRAT INCUMBENT ANDREW CUOMO JUST A WASTE OF TIME AND BREATH ?????

Life is too short.....

So, any mention of Capano's possibly running for governor from this point forward will be "deep-sixed" from this blog ASAP >>> unless and until >>> it has been demonstrated to our satisfaction ( me and my closest BSIs ) that a Bob Capano candidacy for Governor of the State of New York in 2018 has any credibility whatsoever.

Talk about Capano running for ANYTHING is a waste of time and breath.

Even on Staten Island, where he really lives.

Good move Gale..this blog should never mention Capano again...add Eaton also Gale!! They are both non entities on Brooklyn and NY politics..

Anonymous said...

Nice point 6:42.

However, in Brooklyn politics the entire GOP is a non entity.

Gale has seen the light!!

Bye bye Capano, Eaton

The big announcement Cats was planning is next year he'll have a float in the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade and Capano will be the float.

Capano, Eaton, and Catsamatedes..the 3 most irrelevant people in Brooklyn politics..that's why they only stay in Manhattan. .

I haven't seen Capano or Eaton in Bay Ridge in months...

Anonymous said...

I haven't seen McCabe in Brooklyn since his primary loss

If Catsimatidis were irrelevant he wouldn't have Ted Ghorra begging his daughter to arrange a meeting. Even Ted realizes his days as Chair are numbered unless he literally lets Jerry run every facet of the Brooklyn GOP.

All of the above are irrelevant. Being the "chair" hasnt mattered since rockefeller left for D.C.

Anonymous said...

Correction 9:06. Rockefeller never thought the GOP chair mattered but I hear Grover Cleveland did.

Anonymous said...

One thing is for sure..Chairmen Capano and former Chairman Eaton don't matter

Capano...just go away!!!

The gravy train from KCCP party has departed and is not coming back. That's why panic has set in.
