Brooklyn Reform Party Chairman Bob Capano's Latest >>> BOMBSHELL

Capano's latest release, verbatim: 


===========================



BROOKLYN REFORM PARTY PRIMARY SET BETWEEN MARTY GOLDEN & ANDREW GOUNARDES IN HOTLY CONTESTED STATE SENATE RACE

Reform Party Primary Uniquely Allows Independent Voters to Participate 
  

(Brooklyn, NY)- The Kings County Reform Party voted this week to issue Wilson Pakula authorizations to both Democrat Andrew Gounardes and Republican Marty Golden in the hotly contested race for the 22nd state senate district (Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Marine Park, Gerritsen Beach). This means there will be a Reform Party primary between these candidates on September 13th, with the winner appearing on the party's line in the November general election.

The New York State Reform Party is the only one that allows independents, or voters not affiliated with any political party, to participate in their primaries. 

Bob Capano, Chairman of the Kings County Reform Party, said his Executive Committee also voted for a primary in the 46th Assembly District (Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights) between Republican Steve Saperstein and Democrat Chris McCreight.

"Today is a great day for independent voters in southern Brooklyn. Unlike any other party, we allow them to participate in our primaries, and they will help choose our nominee in the two most contested races in Brooklyn. For the first time in Brooklyn history, these voters, who are pejoratively referred to as 'blanks' and often dismissed by the major political parties, will be actively engaged by those seeking to be on a party line in the general election," stated Kings County Reform Party Chairman Bob Capano. He added that the Party plans to host a debate for each race focused on key priorities of the Reform Party, including term limits, initiative and referendum, and non-partisan elections.

Capano also noted that those not affiliated with any political party are the fastest growing group of voters in the country. 

NYS Reform Party Chairman Curtis Sliwa stated, "Each of these candidates took the time to seek our support because they understood the importance of our line. Now, they will have the opportunity to engage voters who are often ignored. We look forward to active and competitive races in these primaries." Sliwa added that since both of these races are expected to be extremely competitive, the Reform line will play an even more significant role in the outcome.

The Brooklyn Reform Party also endorsed Republican Yevgeny Goldberg in the 44th Assembly District (Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Kensington, Borough Park, Midwood) in his race against incumbent Robert Carroll, and Republican Daniel Ramos in the 52nd Assembly District (Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Gowanus). The incumbent is Jo Anne Simon. 

A Wilson Pakula is an authorization given by a political party to a candidate for public office that allows the candidate not registered with that particular party to run as its candidate in an election.

The Kings County Reform Party is expected to make additional endorsements in state races next week.

I thought the Reform Party was endorsing Marty Golden??????????????????????
That's what the Golden crew was telling everyone for the past month ?????

Gail, for once you didn't get all involved in a story that tells itself. Does Capano have you tied up in a closet?

Marty will be the Reform candidate in November as has been stated all along..

This one cracks me up. So here is the real tough part. Golden wants the reform party and Gournardes does not. The suspense is killing me.

Things will go from bad to worse for Marty Golden if he risks a primary for the Reform Party line. Advisors are telling him to abandon the line to Gounardes rather than risk losing an almost "open" Reform Party primary in September.

RESPONSE: THE "RATTLING THEIR CAGES" EDITION

TO: SEVERAL OF THE COMMENTERS ABOVE

CAPANO'S PARTY'S DECISION TO ALLOW A LARGELY "OPEN" OR "NON-PARTISAN" REFORM PARTY PRIMARY BETWEEN MARTY GOLDEN AND ANDREW GOUNARDES WAS ALMOST THE PERFECT KNIFE WITHOUT FINGERPRINTS INTO THE BACK OF THE INCUMBENT REPUBLICAN STATE SENATOR --- AND SINCE THERE ARE NO FINGERPRINTS THERE MUST BE LOTS OF SUSPECTS --- SOME ROUTINE, SOME NOT-SO-ROUTINE AND ALL THE COMBINATIONS GREAT FOR CONSPIRACY THEORISTS

I'VE ALSO HEARD LOTS OF CHATTER NOT FROM COMMENTERS ON THIS BLOG AS A RESULT OF CAPANO'S BOMBSHELL ANNOUNCEMENT --- IT WAS A REAL CAGE RATTLER ALL AROUND

Please, let me speculate here and now, based on the comments and rumors that I've heard:

Seeking to avoid an early confrontation by Andy-boy Gounardes, Old Man Marty and his folks may not want or accept the Wilson-Pakula authorization from the Reform Party.

Some observers and gadflies think that Marty Golden is too arrogant to enter any primary. Others say that Marty's losing any primary would be a devastating blow to him. Also that many of Golden's folks fear that losing to Gournades in an "open" Reform Party primary, wherein over 30,000 voters without a declared party affiliation can vote in the primary, would point to an almost certain loss to the Democrat in November.

On the other hand one key operator thinks this: if Golden doesn't enter primary and hands it to Gournades, Golden can be portrayed as being afraid to openly take on Gournades in the earlier contest. Since both sides will really need the unaffiliated voters to win the election in November, the buzz for Gournades' taking the Reform Party line after showing that he was willing to enter that party's primary against Golden, while his opponent was afraid to do so, would be a massive PR coup for the Democrat. I agree, Capano has presented Golden with an obvious and classic "fork" --- checking the king and threatening the queen by one move --- and Marty is royally "forked".....

In closing, let me say that the consensus of what I've seen and heard about all of this stuff is that what Capano and his allies did is far worse for Marty Golden and his backers than if the Reform Party actually "endorsed" Democrat Gournades outright.....

Just you wait and see. When everything comes out, they'll call this the Capano Upside Down Cake. Gounardes, who didn't want the Reform line, and was told not to take it by everal "advisors," will wind up the Reform nominee by default (you can take that to the bank). And Golden who did want the line, came out and asked for it, and even made offerings to get it got nothing but an offer of a Wilson-Peculiar, which he'll never use.

Anonymous said...

Gail, you missed half of this story.

You did say that Golden never had a chance to get the Reform Party nomination, and that's pretty factual. You gave Capano the space to run his whole press release, that was both friendly and smart. But what you didn't do was mention that New York State Reform Party Chairman Curtis Sliwa casually dropped a bomb on Marty Golden last night on NY1. It seems that Curtis thinks that MArty G is line for an indictment sort of like Michael Grimm got.

Bob cant give the line away. Pathetic !!

What are u talking about?
Marty wanted the Reform line, I was told by several people he interviewed with Bob and the party for the line, and told many he expected the line (as echoed by his sycophants on this blog).

He did not get the line and now these same sycophants like 511 are saying he never wanted it ...sounds more like Capano did a brilliant move as Gale pointed out..

Sounds like sour grapes..now that's pathetic!!!

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 3:51 AM"

YOU MAKE THIS TOO EASY --- MARTY AND HIS TEAM WENT AFTER THE REFORM LINE AND MADE ALMOST ALL OF THE PROMISES CALLED UPON TO GET IT, OR SO THEY THOUGHT --- IT'S NOW VERY CLEAR THAT, ONCE THE GOLDEN TEAM SHOWED ITS INTEREST IN GETTING ONTO THE REFORM PARTY LINE, IT WAS PLAYED LIKE A FISH ON THE LINE --- THE REFORM PARTY RUSE WAS SO CONVINCING, THAT MANY IN THE GOLDEN FOLD ACTUALLY TOLD WHOMEVER THEY COULD THAT IT WAS A "DONE DEAL"


.... Also very clear is that the real long-time deal has been that the Reform Party was part of somebody's big picture in undoing the Golden regime inside the Brooklyn GOP..... Hmmmmm !!! I wonder who that might be..... I think it's more than one person though; probably more like three or four or five; and their initials are BC, CS, JC, and of course CE (surely, with GM nearby and in-the-know for a long time).

If you don't believe any part of this, you do so at your own peril and significant disadvantage.

EARTH TO THE MARTYBOT(S) IN ORBIT AROUND HIS ANUS (URANUS DIDN'T QUITE WORK) --- AS I MENTIONED IN ONE OF MY "RESPONSE" COMMENTS ABOVE, MARTY G. HAS BEEN "ROYALLY FORKED" BY BOB CAPANO AND THE BROOKLYN REFORM PARTY APPARATUS --- CRAIG E. & JOHNNY CATS WERE IN ON IT WITH CAPANO AND SLIWA


Without letting any of the cats out of the bag [and certainly not the Big Cat], there will be much more from Craig E. and John C. on the Marty G. front, and none of it good for Marty..... It jointly and severally will be at least as big a [bunch of] deal[s] as stopping Marty from getting Ghorra made a State Vice Chair or the State Senate slot on the Reform Party line. Also it will be largely deniable and without fingerprints [and maybe, like now, you benighted Golden folks will provide the alibi(s)]. Also note, both Craig E. and John C. know enough not to tweak Marty unless they "kill him off" in the process.

Actually, nobody that I know really cares if the Democrats score a clean sweep locally in 2018, except of course for Nicole M.

You must have been at the wrong party.

I WAS actually there and there were over 70 people there. And I overheard Donovan's Fundraiser say that they raised over $ 5,500.00.

When the report is filed and shows the $$ raised, it will prove that 6:26 is just blowing smoke.

Anonymous said...

6:52 is 100% correct from my accounts.

I was supposed to go to the party but was stuck in work, and my friends did go.

I saw a video where Craig recognized current and former District Leaders, Vice Chairs and others including former Deputy Mayor Rudy Washington, who was there on behalf of John Cats, Tom McCarthy, Elizabeth Tretter, Christine Parker, Nick Chamberis, Bob and Diana Howe, Pat Russo and his wife, etc etc. A lot of dignitaries....

The yard was packed and they served dinner from Gino's..

Sorry I missed it. Heard the food was great.

Someone is jealous of Craig’s event. I got there late and there were about forty people there. Christine Parker was taking pictures all the way in the front. I heard he raised over $6,000 so there’s no way there were six people or twenty people like some of you say. I’m not in any of these so called camps but one of the posters made a good point that Ted hasn’t done anything for Danny yet and he’s the official chair of the party. I have nothing against Ted or Jerry or Craig but the dude who keeps mentioning the one tweet from Cats has issues. Let’s all just get along.

Anonymous said...

Waiting for the one link that includes Craig beating Marty "bloody" this year..

Again, the truth is Cats supports Marty publicly and told Eaton to be quiet as everyone knows Craig can't stand Golden..Craig is following what John told him to do..that's all the proof u need that Cats is with Marty...why else would Craig be so quiet in the biggest race in Brooklyn involving his own state senator he can't stand..

By the way, if Craig is so close with donovan, why does Kassar folks control the bklyn office, as was the case even when Eaton was chairman...poor guy...irrelevance is hard.

Danny was conned by the Cons. If Kassar had any juice left they wouldn’t have brought people from Staten Island to work in the Brooklyn Office. Some people get patronage jobs but still take their jobs seriously but not them. After Hynes lost there were a bunch of conservatives who lost their jobs and Jerry Kassar had no where to put them, if Kassar was still close to Donovan they wouldn’t be bringing people over from the island. Meanwhile all of Kassar’s main people including Senator Storobin are supporting Grimm. It’s what we call “Brooklyn Conservative Mathematics”, Donovan would do well to take a crash course.

Anony at 4:58 is really clueless.

He/she says Eaton is irrelevant and keeps repeating this same post, with a few minor varioatios, over and over and over again - to the point where all of us dont want to hewar it anymore.

Quite frankly I think 60 people at his house and $ 6,000.00 for a two hour party at his home are pretty good and prove he and his wife are clealry relevant.

As for the Kassar comment, a lot of you have said that Donovan has finally caught on to Kassar's trickery.

Anonymous said...

If Kassar no longer has "juice" as you say, his folks like Fran V ella (who is actually running the bklyn office!!) wouldn't be there , they would be fired (there are no unions there, Donovan can fire then at will)..please explain.

I am sure there will be crickets from 538 and 550 just like there are when asked for one public link of Eaton being critical of Marty...crickets there also.

Anonymous said...

Also 538 am if Eaton is so close with Donovan why doesn't Eaton give him that "crash course" you mentioned already so the Brooklyn office would be cleared of conservatives?? It's because Dono van justbused Eaton for the $$ , no juice or pull with the congressman
.whereas Kassar influence is out there for all to see..

When will Eaton saying something publicly about the state Senate race of he has all this juice..the answer he w ont, as told by John Cats

The minion who last posted at 6:08 is getting even more desperate. The last time a job was open in the Brooklyn Office, Dan brought in someone from Brooklyn without asking Jerry or Fran their opinion. They tried to get Liam rehired but Dan wasn’t go to get sleazy and let someone go just to bring back Liam. Now by most accounts Craig gets dozens of people together and raises anywhere between $6,000-$10,000 while Jerry and his puppet Ted Ghorra raise nothing but hot air about how important they are. Dan was at Craig’s house for over two hours and it was obvious that they are good friends. If Jerry was half as powerful as he acts and if Ted was anything but Jerry’s puppet, Dan wouldn’t have dared step foot in that Fundraiser and you all know that’s true.

The Donovan Grimm Primary is actually helping the Ghorra faction because people are focusing on that instead of the fact the Brooklyn GOP has been taken over by the Brooklyn Conservatives. There are over 100,000 Republicans in Brooklyn and only 4,000 Conservatives. After the primary all of these previously warring factions are going to unify and ask Ted some very uncomfortable questions.

RECENT EVENTS HAVE PROVEN THAT CRAIG EATON CONTINUES TO BE THE DE FACTO BROOKLYN GOP COUNTY LEADER --- THERE HAS BEEN PLENTY OF ACTION AND PROOF OF THAT LATELY --- JUST NO IDENTIFIABLE FINGERPRINTS --- AND THAT'S EXACTLY HOW HE LIKES IT..... FOR NOW !!!


Without trying to be sacrilegious, "... his know him, and he knows his..."

Here are two things with which Craig Eaton was directly connected and closely involved: 1) spiking Ted Ghorra's attempt to become the NYC/NYS Vice Chairman; and instead putting Andrea Catsimatidis in that spot (while Marty "mentored", Craig acted with gusto); and 2) spiking Marty Golden's attempt to get the Reform Party line (while Marty [and others] called, begged, pleaded and threatened, Craig acted with gusto).

There will be a time soon enough for more open and public displays vis a vis "MARTY" (and not just tweets and/or e-mails, or even just a press release or two), but all of that and much more will be well-timed for maximum effect.

Again, provide one link of anyone "in the Brooklyn GOP" who have said anything positive about Eaton publicly since he left, never mind about a "gilded era"..Again, sure will be crickets ..

Like everything else on this thread will just be what Eaton wants people to think...no proof.

Still waiting for a link on Eaton saying anything critical about Marty's re election ..

All we know for sure is Cats supports Marty and is mentoring Andrea.

a so called party at Eatons house is the "gilded era"?

You should take note that many fine books have been published since the 1930's

Party leaders go with the winner. Same goes for hacks like Golden who hid in the corner during the Donovan-Giuliani press conference. People are jumping off Donovans sinking ship because its the smart move.

Did Eaton put up any links to support ANY of the above yet??
Nope

After all the bluster here about Craig beating Marty "bloody" and "Brooklyn GOP leaders" saying Eatons days were the "gilded ages", not one single public piece of evidence can be put here, not one link ..no other choice to but to conclude this is all a figment of Craigs imagination..

RESPONSE: THE "HERE'S THE LINK --- TWO, ACTUALLY....." EDITION

TO: THE GOLDEN-BOT TROLL, A/K/A "CEMENT FOR BRAINS"

THE TWO LINKS ARE MARTY GOLDEN AND CRAIG EATON


Marty knows very well what Craig has been up to (As a matter of fact far better than I do). Marty has complained, threatened and cajoled to get Eaton and Capano to relent --- so Marty knows; just ask him about it; maybe, he'll be in a mood to vent (yet again).

Just as important, Craig Eaton knows that Marty knows --- here's the irony, what is Craig's response to anybody that accuses him about any of it (and there have been quite a few), "Where's your proof ?"

So what's my proof of what I've said? --- Why, it's direct conversations with Craig Eaton and Bob Capano about their stuff; and I also have spoken to a few people that themselves have had direct conversations with Craig and Bob about some of the same stuff; and well, the Marty stuff, it's like Prego (a secret sauce/source, like Mama Celeste).....

Anonymous said...

Marty, Jerry, and Ted’s heavy handed tactics led to all of this. They kept poking at Craig when he had decided to remain low, they even got his petitions for county committee thrown out and ran someone against him. Talk about petty and spiteful. For all those who have any doubt that Criaig is still a major force to be reckoned with, just look at the successful Fundraiser he had for Donovan in his home where he got around 50 people and raised over $6,000 for Donovan. Craig got more people to pay to come to his house than Brooklyn Grimm operation (read Team Ghorra) could gather by giving away free pizza. That tells you all you need to know.

It is ironic, how there are 123 comments to this post, and most if not all of them refer to directly or mention Craig.

Wow, he really must be irrelevant?

That is the biggest joke I have heard, next to the one where Golden said he was putting Gomora in as Chair.

Where's the links?

Anonymous said...

Whoever you are at 526, you keep referring to links. There obviously arent any such links, because as Gale explained quite simply above, which might very well be above your pay grade, Eaton is smart enough not to have any fingerprints on the damage he is causing Golden.

It is a very stealth and smart play......

Extremely smart.

So please, stop wasting time asking for links. There arent any.

The truth comes out!
So we are just to take your word that everything under the sun that happens to Marty Golden is the result of Craig Eatons silent hand??

Yeah right..

Anonymous said...

Gale at 400pm
Per your comment , I just spoke to Marty he said he has no idea about what Craig has been "up to"..

That's the problem when no proof and someone is told can't talk publicly against Marty..

Anonymous said...

Yeah right 7:25. Proof

The proof is in the pudding.

Galewyn Massey said...

RESPONSE: THE "IF YOU REALLY '...JUST SPOKE TO MARTY'" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 7:25 PM"

THEN YOU MUST BE NEAR THE TOP OF THE MARTY PYRAMID --- THE PART WITH THE "ALL-SEEING EYE" --- AND >>> YOU <<< ACTUALLY KNOW ALL THAT I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT EATON IS TRUE

MORE IMPORTANT, YOU HAVE >>> CONFIRMED <<< THAT ALL OF THIS ANTI-EATON CHATTER IS COMING FROM THE TOP OF THAT VERY SAME GOLDEN PYRAMID


So riddle me this, Batman: why is somebody working so hard on behalf of Marty to establish, prove, confirm, drive-home, inculcate, or something damn close to all of those things, that Marty is supported by Craig, and by inference John Catsimatidis? It's indeed a very strange Quixotic quest, you must admit; and it is one that bespeaks a very deep insecurity..... Again, what is the why and wherefore for all of this falderal.

BTW, I'll concede that you have proved this much >>> EATON IS WITH MARTY <<< to this extent: Eaton has gotten deep into Marty's head.....

Liam is in Brooklyn. Alexandra is paid staff from Steeplechase running the ground game for Grimm on SI and Brooklyn.

Grimm will have the same result as Liam...a loss

Marty Golden does the strangest things. He 'showed up" then tried everything but hide behind a potted plant rather than have his picture taken with Dan Donovan at the Rudy Rally; and just a while ago today, he did a pretty strong robocall for the incumbent saying how hard they worked together for things that were good for Brooklyn, and for first responders and veterans. .

Marty always wins, but so does Eaton. Eaton never lost. He left on his own terms and never lost..especially not to Golden.

Where are your facts? Pls give us some facts.

I wonder why Donovan wanted Marty instead of Eaton to do the call...Eaton was the gilded ages after all

Anonymous said...

Funny how a powerful state senator who has been in office before the internet feels he needs to compete with Craig Eaton. Craig left on his own terms in epic fashion. Marty had a deal with Lucretia to make Ted Chair at the reorg. Craig was ten steps ahead of them and let the snakes fight it out on their own as hangs out with billionaires and welcomes Congressmen into his home.

Has Craig said any public word whatsoever about the Golden race??

RESPONSE: THE "NICE FRIENDLY CALL" EDITION

TO WHOM IT MIGHT CONCERN

ONE OF THE LITTLE BIRDIES THAT OFTEN CHIRP INTO MY EAR (WITHOUT TWEETS, E-MAILS OR OTHER "LINKS") WAS A REGULAR SONGBIRD THIS AM.....


The special source is tickled pink that there is so much chatter about him on this blog, both for and against..... He not only confirmed again (this time in a circumspect way that he was instrumental in all that I have attributed to him). He also let me know that he is still on very good terms with both John Catsimatidis and Ed Cox.....

He also spoke very positively about an idea to advance "Reform" throughout Brooklyn, both in 2018 and going forward --- sort of the other shoe dropping to Capano's Pauline conversion on the road to Damascus.

This birdie's song was so light and airy that it makes me want to burst into song myself:

I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
'Cause you started something, can't you see
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me
I happens to be true, I only want to be with you
It doesn't matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It's crazy but it's true, I only want to be with you
You stopped and smiled at me
Asked me if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
I didn't stand a chance
Now, listen, honey, I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you started something,
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you
I said no matter, no matter what you do
I only want to be with you
(Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien -- "DUSTY")

Who is Craig and what did he leave?

Anonymous said...

I haven't seen Craig comment on politics or Marty publicly at all this year?

Anonymous said...

Craig Eaton is the former Brooklyn GOP Chairman of almost ten years, and his reign was the last time the Brooklyn GOP wasn't a subsidiary of the Brooklyn Conservatives and completely run by the Conservatives via a puppet figurehead GOP chairman. Craig Eaton is still well regarded enough and relevant enough to have gotten more people to pay to attend a fundraiser for Dan Donovan, than the Grimm camp could gather at a well known restaurant for free.

Anonymous said...

So Craig was the GOP leader that never gathered any signatures for countywide office?

I guess that explains why the Conservative party is the ONLY party that has a full slate on the ballot in November.

Anonymous said...

Even John Cats know where the power is which is why he is squarely with Marty, while Craig is silent

Anonymous said...

John Cats big donor to Dan Donovan. Donovan spent a couple of hours at Craig’s house during the Fundraiser. Marty and Jerry have made it well known that anyone associating with Craig not welcome. Guess Dan knows John and Craig good friends do not to worry about Marty and Jerry.
