Protestors Asked --- Why does State Senator Golden work so hard to protect sexual predators ???


Similar legislation to this year’s "Child Victim’s Act" has had the support of both the NYS Governor and the NYS Attorney General, and routinely has passed in the NYS Assembly  ---  and year after year after year,  it has been blocked in the Republican controlled NYS Senate


John Quaglione, State Senator Martin Golden’s deputy chief of staff and his chosen spokesperson on this issue,   said that Golden and his fellow Republican State Senators are fully committed to helping victims of child sex abuse obtain justice  ---  in spite of the fact that Marty Golden, his boss, is absolutely opposed to the best piece of legislation for giving sexual abuse victims justice


GOLDEN’S LONG OPPOSITION TO THE  “CHILD VICTIMS ACT” AND SIMILAR LEGISLATION IS REASON ENOUGH TO VOTE AGAINST HIM  FOR RE-ELECTION


 

Maybe you missed it,  but victims of child sex abuse rallied last month outside state Sen. Martin Golden's office in Bay Ridge….   The demonstrators voiced their anger at Golden for his refusal to support a proposed piece of legislation to extend the time victims have to report such crimes. They claim he is protecting abusers and failing victims….   The Child Victims Act would give victims of child sex abuse more time to come forward and file charges against their alleged abuser. Currently, most victims have until the age of 23 to come forward….   ‘We are losing the vast majority of victims because the courthouse is shut before they're even ready to come forward,’ said Marci Hamilton, CEO of Child USA….   Survivors of child sex abuse say it could take decades to grapple with the pain and come forward….   ‘Why should predators be protected by the passage of time, but victims continue to suffer endlessly?’ ask[ed] Kathryn Robb, a child sex abuse survivor. ‘It's insanity.’…"  (See  Child sex abuse survivors rally in Bay Ridge”  by  Staff writers/producers,  2/26/18,  News12Brooklyn,   [http://brooklyn.news12.com/story/37596250/child-sex-abuse-survivors-rally-in-bay-ridge]).

As part of his response,  John Quaglione  said this:   “….   Everyone agrees that everything should be done to help those who have been sexually abused from being a victim to being a survivor [sic]….”   After that,  Marty Golden’s communications guy,  this time referred to only  as a    “spokesperson,”   quickly descended into dissembling,   and doing what he seems to do best,   being a big blathermouth…… 

In another article about that rally outside SSMG’s office on Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge,   the key proponent of the most current version of the proposed legislation was quoted by Paula Katinas,  as follows:   Marci Hamilton, a founding member of New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators and the CEO of the group CHILD USA, said New York State has among the most restrictive child sex abuse laws in the country. As a result, Hamilton said, the law offers more protection to sexual predators than to victims….   ‘The Child Victims Act will break the hidden culture of abuse that plagues our communities, while also giving victims their day in court. The state Senate should follow Gov. Cuomo’s lead in embracing the importance of this bill and putting it up for a vote. The Child Victims Act will shine a spotlight on thousands of New York's hidden predators and put power back into the hands of victims,’  Hamilton said in a statement….”  ( See “Sex abuse survivors demand GOP support for bill”  Paula Katinas,  2/27/18,  The Brooklyn Eagle   [http://www.brooklyneagle.com/articles/2018/2/27/sex-abuse-survivors-demand-gop-support-bill]).

Paula K.  also reported on Quaglione’s  blather in defense of the indefensible.

BROOKLYN PAPER  TOOK THE GLOVES OFF FOR ITS COVERAGE OF THE ANTI-GOLDEN PROTEST

According to Julianne McShane,  writing in the  Courier Life’s  “Brooklyn Daily”  ---  ”….  One of the survivors protesting at the Fifth Avenue office of state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Bay Ridge) said Golden’s continued opposition to a bill combatting sexual abuse is particularly egregious on the heels of the national #MeToo movement….   ‘As the rest of America continues to decry sexual abuse and harassment, Golden remains firmly planted on the wrong side of history, allowing hidden predators to continue inflicting pain and damage on our communities,’ said Steve Jimenez, a founding member of New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators, which organized the demonstration. ‘The inaction of him and his Republican colleagues in the Senate is a disgrace, and New Yorkers are making it known they have had have enough.’…”  ( See  “Locals call for Golden to support legislation protecting victims of child sex crimes”  by Julianne  McShane,  3/2/18,  Courier Life’s Brooklyn Daily   [https://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/9/br-golden-child-victims-act-protest-2018-03-02-bk.html]).

Golden's best Albany buddy, Vito Lopez, was the #1 friend of sexual abusers. He used his power to stop similar legislation for many years.

With Lopez dead, Marty has taken on the mantle of champion. Like his other friend, the Cardinal, Marty thinks this legislation is toxic to a certain worldwide religion.

Marty's friends can't continue to live like kings if they are paying for decades of abusing children.

Marty rules..Craig Eaton last bastion of relevance saying he still is close to CATS and that that Manhattan GOP chair Andrea Cats and family can't stand Golden was totally destroyed yesterday by the public love fest between Marty G and Andrea Cats

Andrea Cats is too busy Instagramming photos of herself in bikinis to know or care who Craig Eaton or Marty Golden are.

She only got the job as Manhattan GOP CHair 'cause Daddy thought it would move her away from posting all those photos of herself.

The purpose of a statute of limitations is to protect people from stale claims that they can no longer defend themselves against.

No one in the Cats family gonna forget how they viciously attacked John when he ran for Mayor in 2013 because Lhota threw the conservatives a few crums. They even took Mallitakis name off the door cause she endorsed Cats. This is their way of begging for forgiveness so Cats don’t bankroll Andrew.

Julianne McShane is a twit who thinks she’s going to get a job at the Washington Post by taking down Marty. Her writing sucks and her only sources are Justin and his psychotic groupies.

RESPONSE: THE "THESE ARE NOT STALE CLAIMS --- AND THERE IS LITTLE IF ANY DEFENSE THAT CAN BE MADE IN MOST OF THEM" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 10:47 AM"

YOU RECITED SOME ROTE DEFINITION THAT IS IN NO WAY RELEVANT TO THE "CHILD VICTIMS ACT" ---
THE "DEEP POCKET" HERE IS A LARGE INSTITUTION THAT HAS A VAST INSTITUTIONAL MEMORY

BTW, THE ACTUAL PURPOSE OF STATUTES OF LIMITATIONS IS TO ALLOW THE WEALTHY AND POWERFUL TO RUN OUT AN ARBITRARY CLOCK ON VICTIMS THAT THEY HAVE INJURED IN VARIOUS WAYS --- WITH SEX OFFENSE CASES, THE PROOF OF THE CLAIM GETS STALER FASTER THAN THE CONSTANTLY EVOLVING DEFENSES WHICH ARE OFTEN NEW AND INTRIGUING

The "Child Victims Act" legislation does have specific time limits indicating which claims can be brought during what time periods..... As I said, rote definitions of "statutes of limitations" are not relevant in this discussion.

What is most relevant is why State Senator Golden has been fighting so hard to protect a whole class of paedophiles and other rapacious sexual predators, including many Catholic priests and monsignors that have committed crimes in the Diocese of Brooklyn (Brooklyn and Queens).

Senator Golden has been fighting to preserve the church and the Republican party. Some of you might consider the same.

Yea Andrea went to Golden’s Office...wow! I guess she wanted to make sure they put Malliotakis name back on the door. Cats and Eaton are still close. But funny how Golden and Kassar have to grovel after all the shit they talked back then.

Hey 1202..Craig Eaton and his cronies are being totally embarassed and being shown for frauds for saying any rift between the Cats and family and Golden..
I just saw John Cats himself just tweeted a photo of Andrea and Senator Golden and he said Marty "mentoring" Andrea..I think we can officially say there is no rift and Eaton is on an island by himself against Golden ..I feel bad for him

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 12:00 PM"

OMG: I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT YOU WROTE THIS AFTER THINKING ABOUT WHAT IT MIGHT MEAN >>> "SENATOR GOLDEN HAS BEEN FIGHTING TO PRESERVE THE CHURCH AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. SOME OF YOU MIGHT CONSIDER THE SAME."

Your answer --- "Senator Golden has been fighting to preserve the church and the Republican party. Some of you might consider the same." --- was in a direct and almost immediate response to this statement containing within it an implied question: ".... What is most relevant is why State Senator Golden has been fighting so hard to protect a whole class of paedophiles and other rapacious sexual predators, including many Catholic priests and monsignors that have committed crimes in the Diocese of Brooklyn (Brooklyn and Queens)."

Your answer was neither a denial nor a rebuttal; in fact, it was a virtual admission with a piss-poor justification.

BTW, with "Defenders of the Faith" like Marty Golden, look at our almost empty churches and even less attended seminaries..... And with NYSSMG as a champion of the Brooklyn and New York State Republican Party(ies), look at our declining numbers on the rolls and at the polls.

102 pm is correct..today is now a very sad day for Craig Eaton and the final nail in his political coffin..I guess Cats didn't think the former Brooklyn GOP Chairman was much of a "mentor".

Anonymous said...

How could they make Quaglione be the chief spokesperson when he can't even string a few words together to form a coherent sentence? Y'all make jokes about the honorable Chairman Eaton but he had a reserved seat right up front at Brannan's inaugural event while Marty had to stand in the back behind the red velvet rope with the ushers

Anonymous said...

John Q almost became Councilman but for a few hundred votes while Capano got 1%.
John was also in the meeting with Senator Golden and Andrea Cats talking about the Goldens re election race, after making a few jokes about how irrelevant Eaton and Capano are to anything..

Golden and Kassar had vowed that they Cats was history and anybody associating with Craig was banned. Well guess what they can’t do a thing to Cats and Craig has become a good friend of his. Now they have to grovel to Cats and his daughter so he don’t raise a few hundred thousand for Gounardis. Now Golden and Kassar has to beg.

I feel bad for Craig..if someone grovels the person that is groveling usually goes to who they are groveling to ..Andrea went to Golden..John called
Golden a mentor to Andrea, that doesn't fit the narrative of 333 pm.

The democrat wins and Golden loses. Does not matter who the Dem is. That includes Barken.

Anonymous said...

All the Democrats interested in the Golden-occupied senate seat will vote for the "Child Victims Act"; while Golden will continue to oppose it, because for some reason his malformed conscience and simplistic religious belief's make him protect, enable and encourage the continued priestly abuse of children.
I've heard that will be one of the drum-beat themes of people against Golden in 2018.

RESPONSE: THE "WHILE EVERYBODY IS HAVING A GOOD TIME CELEBRATING" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 6:17 AM"

WHILE YOU ARE WATCHING AND/OR PITCHING IN WITH ALL OF THE HOOPLA AND FOLDEROL --- REMEMBER IT IS PALM SUNDAY --- AND CONTEMPLATE WHERE ALL THAT DAY'S HOOPLA AND FOLDEROL LED --- TO THREE BLOODY CROSSES ON TOP OF GOLGOTHA

While a bunch of rum-sodden twits are being their typical selves, and all those that consider themselves "GOLDEN" bask in its last glimmerings; the blight of priestly sexual abuse still runs deep, unpunished and rampant in the Diocese of Brooklyn.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO ????? WELL, FRANKLY, I DON'T KNOW, BUT THIS IS WHAT HE SAID:

"And whoever welcomes a little child like this in My name welcomes Me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world for the causes of sin. These stumbling blocks must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!…"

THAT SEEMS PRETTY CLEAR AND STRAIGHT FORWARD --- AND WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD IT BEGINNING TO END FROM ANY PULPIT IN ANY CATHOLIC CHURCH IN BROOKLYN OR QUEENS ?????


BTW, and on a lighter note, here's a Holy Week riddle: What American President was given a "Crown of Thorns" by a not yet canonized pope ?????

Wow Gale !!!

You threw out an excellent question @ 7:54. A trick question? The last sentence is a trap but here I go.

The american president given a crown of thorns is not considered by all to be a former President. It was CSA President Jefferson Davis who the Pope made a crown of thorns for while Davis was a prisoner at Fort Monroe for the two years following the civil war. As for the un canonized part I'm not sure if that Pope went by his maiden name.

Anonymous said...

It was Pope Pious IX.
The crown hangs in a museum in New Orleans. What is going on here? Next I'll be hearing stories about Gale drinking with The Sons of The Confederacy and other assorted outlaws at Saloons in Midtown Manhattan.

BTW, Mike Long is quoted by Ken (not Lyle) Lovett in the DN feed; and as hard as I look, I don't see the word "endorse"; and I didn't see the word "support" either.....

".... In other words, a person could develop a bad, bad cold !!!" (Yes, that is from a Broadway show.)

New York state Conservative party chairperson Long made his reason clear as to why he is supporting Manny. Nobody else wants to run.

It's called the warm body candidacy and Manny is as warm as they get.
