Reformer Bob Capano uses his column as part of his version of unrestricted submarine warfare against "Republican" Marty Golden



Captain Capano launched two very well-aimed torpedoes into the side of the flagship of Brooklyn Republicanism,  New York State Senator Martin J. Golden  ---  it remains to be seen whether the old four-stacker had his guts blown out below the belt where it counts;  and whether he rolls over and goes down without a  return shot like the "Lusitania" did over a hundred years ago..... 


Does this mean that the whole Reform Party is going "all in" against Golden ?   Is Curtis Sliwa on board with Captain Capano ??? 


Are there even more bigger, more lethal,  "fish" out there ready to give Golden some of the "hit-'em-'Harder' "  action wolf-pack style ?????

  

Oh!  And Bobby C. all but said,   "Hey,  John Quaglione,  'This Bud's for you'  in his summation !!!"  (See if you agree.....)


Excerpts from Capano's column

 

And so it goes:  "Here is an open secret in politics: Elected officials are only as effective as their staff....  And the golden rule during campaign season is that there is a clear line of separation for staffs working on the taxpayers’ dime in their official capacity and engaging in political activities for their boss. Sure, a staffer can do both, but the hours working on each must be separated....  Lately, it seems that state Sen. Marty Golden’s staff has let him down on all of the above...."    [Translation:  my torpedoes are aimed at the  "S.S. Marty"  ---   but John Quaglione  ---   I didn't mention your name,  but do know that you are on board for this voyage;  so, enjoy the swim.....]  (See  "Golden’s staff’s faux pas showing cracks in his armor"  by Bob Capano,  7/19/18,  Courier Life's  Brooklyn Daily/  Politics/ Opinion/ The Right View   [https://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/29/all-right-view-golden-staffers-2018-07-20-bd.html]).



There is lots more detail in Capano's article about the multiple "Golden Staff" offenses,  apparently in violation of clearly stated federal law about a politician's use and control of social media.  However, the coup de grace is in Capano's concluding paragraphs;  and it's into the head(s) of people hitching a ride aboard the good ship "Marty G."


Capano's Summation:


"....   Staffers should have the same professional and ethical standards as elected officials because we also pay their salaries. If they do not, it is up to the boss to make a change....   I don’t know how to explain the recent sloppiness of [NY State Senator Martin]Golden’s staffers. It could be the pressure of Golden’s first legitimate re-election race, or just comfort by staffers who have been with him throughout his career in public office  (Hmmm !!!  THat sure sounds like Kassar and Quaglione)....   One of the pitfalls of being in the same position for so long is that it causes one to lose focus. In business, this is one the reasons retail chain stores often change managers every two years. The equivalent in politics would be term limits....  Perhaps, this is one more reason for term limits for all elected officials, and therefore, their staffs as well."

At least Capano has had other jobs. Quaglione has worked for Marty for literally his entire life..what will he do when Marty loses?

Anonymous said...

Marty’s not losing. People get that through your heads. This happens every election cycle. Republicans who can’t stand Golden get excited about the totally unrealistic prospect of him losing they say and do stupid shit making them lose credibility. As you can see clearly by what’s going on with the practically non existent Brooklyn GOP, the goal is to render it extinct. Golden will win again and we will get trounced everywhere else because Jerry is in charge. It’s time to change that but it won’t be with Golden losing time to face that. We need new leadership at County plenty of people who get along with Golden but won’t be Jerry’s poodle.

Anonymous said...

The unfortunate thing is that Marty will win re-election and he will continue to stifle the GOP Party in Brooklyn, will continue to be corrupt and will continue to walk around Bay Ridge, like last night at the stroll, with his Kackis and his NYS Senate Blue Golf Shirt that he is so proud of.

Hey Marty, get some new clothes

Anonymous said...

Bob Capano is now openly going after Golden. That is a seismic shift for him.

He wouldn't do it unless: 1) he sees Marty a being weak; and 2) his friends and patrons have given him moral support in his most recent move.

Saying Marty Golden's staff are illegally engaging in political activity on government time is no small charge. Making sure it gets coverage in the New York City papers will be his next step, just you wait and see.

Who comes out against Golden next, Eaton or Cats; or will they do it together?

Wake up and smell the coffee, 6:57. Lately, nobody has lost as much credibility as Marty Golden. Most of the Republicans that I know can't stand him any more, and say that he has to go now, not two years from now.

For what's been more than ten years by now, Marty Golden has been the Republican Party in Brooklyn, why don't Eaton, Capano and the rest of the rag-tag '"reform Republicans"' or '"independent Republicans"' see that?

Say '"PERIOD & FULL STOP"' all that you want to any or all of that, '"Anonymous"' Bob and '"Galewyn"' Jim.

Marty had to pay to get enough signatures to even get on the ballot. In the end, he submitted a very weak petition for all that he spent on Jeff, Bob and what's her name, and their crews.
That shows real weakness, even Ross Barkan looks like he had a stronger petition.

Anonymous said...

7:49 Marty isn’t losing get it through your thick skulls. Sure Bob has landed a few shots more than Barkan and Gounardes combined times ten but he’s not going to lose some of you will feel great cheering on the delusional rantings during the campaign and customarily withdraw after the election and let Kassar and his sycophants completely destroy the party after. Take your cues from Cats and Eaton, they’d love to see Marty and Jerry get their comeuppance after what they did to him a few years ago but see that Marty is going to win again and are making just uncomfortable enough for him. The real play is what happens after the election, if we don’t reclaim the party soon we’re gonna go the way of the Bronx GOP only with less members and they have a headquarters and we don’t.

If Cats ever decides to go against Golden there will be no doubt as to whether he is condoning anything. Golden's not stupid either, gone are the days when he is going let imbecile staffers start wars with moguls over stupid petty personal shit.

9:42 if Cats was 100% with Golden, Capano would be doing none of this, Capano would be reluctant to mention Golden's name. Cats won't soon forget what Marty and Jerry did to him a few years ago. Other electeds and their organizations opposed Cats too but they didn't actively spread dirt and organize smear campaigns against him like Jerry did. Cats and Eaton are good friends probably because Eaton was one of the few who genuinely helped Cats and didn't try to hose his campaign for the money. Eaton probably knows that Marty is not losing this race, why make a big fuss and give them the high ground after the election. Everyone who wants to help reorganize and save the Brooklyn GOP should take a cue from Craig.

UPDATE & BACKFILL (SORT OF): THE "SOCIAL NETWORK" EDITION


According to some of my monks toiling at their computers in the monastery tell me that the Capano column, which was mentioned in my main post above this thread, is making some waves on social media (facebook & twitter). There are some comments from peanut gallery agreeing with Bob C. that staff gaffs are important; and that John Quaglione might have reached his "sell-by date" on Golden's staff after lots and lots and lots of years, and lots and lots and lots of gaffs and goofs.

Also it looks like some Golden supporters are also pointing fingers at Marko Kepi as the one who screwed up the social media stuff; some even suggested that HE (Kepi) should go.

It's already fair to say, that Capano's column went off like a bomb in the middle of the Golden crew; and they are dazed and confused. Once again, Capano certainly created lots of "buzz" and this time even aired some legitimate questions about State Senator Golden's staff's doing campaign-related stuff while supposedly "working" -- "on the clock" for the taxpayers.

Two months ago, the Golden go-fers thought that Capano and his Reform Party had been neutralized and were inside the Golden tent. Just one word describes that conclusion --- WRONGO !!!!!

Beloved inside the Office as much as Jerry is reviled. His "sell by" is rumor started by Kassar loyalists and gleefully embraced by Bob C and friends because they hate him. Kepi is not going anywhere either, yes mistakes were his but he is Marty's henchman and goon will do almost anything Kassar tells him. This is very valuable in Golden's orbit.

The little secret State Senator Martin J. Golden and everybody dependent on Senator Golden do not want the world to know:

If ANYBODY had run in the GOP primary against Marty Golden in either 2014, 2016 or 2018, AND THEY FILED ENOUGH VALID SIGNATURES TO QUALIFY AS A REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE IN THE 22nd STATE SENATE DISTRICT, they not Marty Golden would likely have been the Republican candidate running in the 22nd State Senate District for the general elections of 2014, 2016 and 2018; and there would have been no need for a primary against the incumbent.

For at least three elections in a row, 2014, 2016 and 2018, Marty Golden has filed a paltry number of low quality signatures. If another candidate would have filed a petition with the minimum number of good signatures, and then filed general objections and specifications against the incumbent state senator, he would have been history, plain and simple.

Anonymous said...

7:23 probably Lucretia is reaching. Lucretia and Marty Golden have been slow to realize that you have to pay people to get petitions. Even Lucretia who lives for and loves petitioning has been getting less the last few years. Golden spent almost half a million dollars in 2016 when he didn’t have an opponent. If he as a primary opponent he’ll just spend a lot on petitioning which he normally doesn’t do.

We all should know that all of Joe Louis' opponents were more competitive than the typical Brooklyn GOP candidate.

He doesn’t know it yet but they’re setting him up to take the fall as the guy who officially ended the Brooklyn GOP.

6:40am You are dead wrong.

Eaton is the only one in the GOP with any balls. He stood up to crooked Golden and sick minded Kassar and then set them both up with his plan for the 2015 GOP Reorg.

He had the balls to beat Golden at his own game and cost him thousands of $$$ to defend two lawsuits and the challenge to the Convention. And to this day at least half of the leaders have not signed on with Golden and Ghorra (except the employment challenged workers at the BOE who could not get a job in the private sector). AND more than 95% of the leaders are not happy with Ghoraa since he does zero, zilch, nothing...

7:55 whoever he or she is, pretty much summed up it. No one in recent memory has stuck it to Golden and Kassar did especially the manner in which he left. No other Chair was attacked as viciously as Craig was, even spreading rumors that he was going to be arrested by the FBI for election fraud conspiracy. They replaced his county commissioner simply because they needed to help find work for an old Golden staffer. They tried ousting Craig simply because he wasn’t insane and wouldn’t endorse Joe Lhota for Mayor. But Lhota campaign had promised cons jobs and that’s all that mattered. Years of faithful successful service to the party meant nothing, and I won’t even mention details of the sad personal events they knew Craig was going through. They failed to take him out and in the end all they could do was try to make a deal with Arnaldo and Lucretia, which Craig flipped on them in epic fashion. Ted was supposed to unify the party and welcome everyone back but he is afraid to say hi to Craig in case Jerry finds out and takes him to the woodshed. It doesn’t matter if supported Craig or hate his guts, this bullshit where a tiny party controls the Brooklyn GOP has to stop.

I am 755 and I am not Craig Eaton

But I am someone who working very very very close to him during his successful tenure as Brooklyn GOP Chair and NYS Vice Chair.

So close that I have all the goods on Golden and Kassar.

The goods such as:

Kassar extorting $$ from candidates such as Andy Sullivan to pay $$ to Kassar and the Cons Party in order to get the Cons endorsement;

Kassar blogging on this blog, texting, emailing and making cell calls all day during every day, when he is being paid to work on NYS Senate business;

Kassar making a ton of $$ from Nicole's campaign when he was supposed to be working on NYS Senate business;

Golden forcing people to use the Bay Ridge Manor for their events. You know, the place that Golden doesnt own, but rather his brother does. You know, the place where his wife gets paid hundreds of thousands of $$ as the Manager but never even goes there;

Golden working on legislation for unions that make large donations to his campaign - no that is not pay to play, is it;

Golden flashing his badge and his parking plaque to park illegally, speed, commit traffic offenses, etc;

Golden threatening BOE employees since 2013 to toe the line and support his candidates or else. Threatening them with their jobs - isnt that illegal?

And so on...there is a lot more.

And there is so much that works using that slogan.
Things like: Marty Golden left the NYPD under a cloud, not as a hero cop; Marty Golden doesn't want anybody to see his police personnel, medical and disciplinary files; Marty Golden bought the Bay Ridge Manor in an under the table deal with a modest price showing, but a lot of cash not showing; Marty Golden shakes down Bay Ridge businesses, both directly and through the BIDs and Merchants Associations; Marty Golden does have a serious problem dealing with women in general, with countless anecdotal examples in particular; and Marty does not have any of the appropriate racial attitudes for a Twenty-first Century public office holder, and somebody really needs to tell him that his 'dog whistle' remarks sound more like a 'police whistle' when you see them in print.

THROUGH RANDOM OCCURRENCE AND/OR BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND/OR BOTH --- THERE IS PROFOUND TRUTH CONTAINED IN WHAT YOU HAVE SAID IN YOUR COMMENT --- ALSO THERE IS PLENTY OF VAGUENESS, CONFUSION AND MISUNDERSTANDING OF THE "FACTS" THAT "INSPIRE" THE COMMENT

This sentence is both complex and compound, and it is also convoluted: "Cats is 100% with Golden, after all you don't trust anyone to "mentor" your daughter who is also the Manhattan GOP Chair...."

Let's start with the obvious --- it is a complete non sequitur, and also a probable self-contradiction in its current form..... If there is any logic or syntax to be teased (actually "tortured") out of that jumble of words, it is this: The very ponderous "Cats is 100% with Golden...." is connected and held in place to all the rest only by the very weak and slender thread of the word "... mentor ...". Furthermore "mentor," which is not internally defined anywhere, is itself set off in this very problematic passage "... after all you don't trust anyone to 'mentor' your daughter who is also the Manhattan GOP Chair...." Frankly, it all sounds like some old out-take material from "X Files".....

Enough about all that, what about this: "Eaton is on an island by himself with Capano...." That's surely is not a reference to John Donne --- in fact, it's more suggestive of "Blue Lagoon" (OMG, what an image) --- instead think this: "Gilligan's Island" - "Gilligan's Island" - "Gilligan's Island" - "Gilligan's Island" - "...a three hour tour..." - "...a three hour tour..." - "...a three hour tour...".....

So, what is the >>> TRUTH <<< expressed in the comment of "... at 6:49 AM" above ???

IT IS ONLY THIS --- THE VAGUE LINKAGE OF THESE FIVE PEOPLE: 1) GOLDEN; 2&3) "CATS" & "... DAUGHTER..."; 4) EATON; AND 5) CAPANO.

"The question begs" --- Why does the obviously pro-Golden commenter "... at 6:49 AM" think that linking these folks in any real world scenario, in any time frame or under any circumstance would possibly be something that might be good for State Senator Martin J. Golden and/or his re-election in 2018 ?????

Why does Golden’s inner circle fear Cats so much?

No, 11:19, pulling Chris back was a smart strategic move that immediately benefitted the Gounardes campaign when it came to his Democratic Party Primary against Barkan.

Almost as important, look at the district maps for the 46th AD and the 22nd SD; they overlap only about 50%. For two Bay Ridge Dems to be in two separate primaries would mean splitting too many resources leading up to and on primary day. If both BRD candidates win their primaries, the same would be true for the general election in November.

More could have been lost by leaving Chris in the primary than getting him out.

Eaton and Cats are good friends. Cats has not forgotten how Jerry went overboard in trying to sabotage his Mayoral campaign a few years ago. As for comment at 1:46 it seems that Justin and Chris have a lot more time to post bs on Republican blogs now that they don't have to pretend to be working on getting Chris elected. The Bay Ridge Dems are people who love to tweet and clap for themselves at the Bridgeview once a month but that is the extent of their effectiveness. Brannan tried shaking down Andrew to help Chris, and was told to forget it. Then boss Treyger came in and told Justin to shut up sit down and smile for the camers. Justin dutifully complied, he's only a tough guy when he's behind a smartphone.

RESPONSE: THE "HOW INTRIGUING !!!" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 4:03 PM"

A COMMENT LIKE YOURS ABOVE IS SOMETHING I DON'T OFTEN SEE OR EXPERIENCE ON THIS BLOG.....

IT APPEARS TO BE SOMEWHAT ECLECTIC IN ITS REACH, ALMOST CATHOLIC (NOT THE RELIGION) --- INSIGHTFUL IN ITS POV --- APPARENTLY, SOMEWHAT INFORMED IN ITS CONTENT --- AND PERHAPS MOST FASCINATING, THERE IS A SOUPCON OF PASSION THAT SUGGESTS A PERSONAL INTEREST IN THE OBSERVATIONS EXPRESSED

ALSO, IT IS COMPARATIVELY WELL CRAFTED, BUT THERE IS A BIT OF EVIDENCE OF A LITTLE HASTE OR A CASUAL ATTITUDE ABOUT THE POSTING


This blog needs much more commentary of this quality. This is like a breath of fresh air on a sultry day like this has been.

AS I NOTED AT THE OUTSET, I FOUND IT INTRIGUING, BECAUSE I DON'T OFTEN SEE SOMETHING LIKE THIS

A BIT OF A FLASH: THE "TWEETS & RE-TWEETS - OR - 'ROCKIN' ROBIN'" EDITION

THE BROOKLYN GOP TWEETS OUT ITS LIST OF SEVEN LOCAL "ENDORSED CANDIDATES" --- HOW PROUD THEY MUST BE, SEVEN (7) CANDIDATES (AND THREE [3] OF THOSE ARE INCUMBENTS).....

NOT TO BE OUTDONE, THE REFORM PARTY DID ITS OWN BIT OF TWITTERING --- AND BOY, ARE THE FOLKS HITHER AND YON TITTERING --- NOTORIOUSLY LEFT OFF OF THE REFORM PARTY'S LIST IS NONE OTHER THAN STATE SENATOR MARTIN J. GOLDEN


According to the Tweets, the GOP endorsed candidates are the following: Marty Golden, Steve Saperstein, Dan Donovan, Nicole Malliotakis, Yevgeny Goldberg, Naomi Levin and
Lutchi Gayot (See under the banner "Defy HIstory 2018" the 7-23-18 Tweets, Twitter [https://mobile.twitter.com/KingsCountyGOP]).

Almost immediately, Reform Party Chairman Bob Capano replied in kind with this: "Replying to @KingsCountyGOP @SouthBrooklynR and 7 others... 'The @ReformNYState Party is proud to join you in endorsing 5 of these 7... @NMalliotakis @SteveSaperstein @YGForAssembly @NaomiLevinNY @dandonovan_ny (See 7/23/18 Tweet by Bob Capano [Bob Capano@BobCapano]).

The real news in Capano' Tweet is the absolute silence about State Senator Marty Golden, who stands out as the only Brooklyn GOP incumbent now-openly >>> NOT ENDORSED <<< by the Brooklyn Reform Party.

Bob certainly appears to have stolen Ted Ghorra's thunder. That really is a blessing in disguise for Mr. Ghorra. Seven GOP candidates in the biggest county in New York State is nothing but an embarrassment to the Brooklyn and State-wide GOP. Only a putz like Ted Ghorra doesn't see the irony in his slogan "Defy History -- 2018".....

I don’t understand why people are upset with Puppet Ted Ghorra doing his job and following his boss Jerry’s orders. Did you any of you all really believe for a minute that he was installed so that he could help grow the party?

Just reminding everyone that there are approximately thirty state legislative seats up for election in Brooklyn this year. That's 30 seats.

The Brooklyn GOP is running a grand total of seven (7) candidates.

Forget about being 'non-competitive', the Kings County Republican Party is mostly not participating in the political process anywhere in Brooklyn, and that includes some areas inside the boundaries of the three incumbent elected office holders. Its County Committee is a sham, and the Republicans don't come close to filling the GOP's BOE allotment of inspectors, coordinators and supervisors. How many local Republican clubs remain active with a formal structure and regular meetings, and that includes the newest club, which is supposed to be working with Saperstein?
