Stop with all the nonsense about Marty Golden and John Catsimatidis --- they aren't an item and they never swapped spit or other bodily fluids --- and THAT had nothing to do with AIDS or HIV
John Catsimatidis remains very close to Craig Eaton on lots of Brooklyn Republican political matters. When anything public involves the Big Cat and Marty Golden, there is a courtesy call to at least one former Brooklyn GOP Chairman, and it is done as much out of love as respect.
If anybody tells you that Marty Golden is "MENTORING" their daughter about anything, other than maybe serving rubber chicken to hundreds of people, rest assured you are being FED some rubber chicken laced with a heavy dose of irony --- a bit of subtlety that Marty Golden's folks still don't seem to get, yet.
John Catsimatidis is a lot closer to a Democrat State Senator of Greek descent, who won his seat from a long-time GOP stalwart, than he is to State Senator Marty Golden.... BTW, that Greek-American Democrat State Senator has his prestige on the line for getting a Democrat majority in the NYS Senate. (Here's a hint and a heads-up: I'm pretty sure that John Catsimatidis also thinks that the Michael Gianaris model can work again in Brooklyn very soon.....)
Let me close with this >>> just how many times has Marty Golden been on the Cat's Roundtable program ?????
