Maybe Marty Golden won't top the hit parade again as a "loser of the week" --- but this was one bad week for State Senator Marty Golden --- now, just one of many .....


NYC'S  DAs lambasting Golden and the other GOP state senators for endangering school kids and probably costing the lives of some  ---  Golden's staff openly threatening and trying to intimidate Golden's political opponents, even saying they might need bats and riot gear  ---  Golden getting outed in the NY Post by one of his opponents for laundering almost $800,000 through his family's catering hall  ---  and just yesterday, getting caught trying to jinn-up a hoax at Ft. Hamilton H.S. into a major act of violence



Maybe, Marty won't get to the top of the list of losers by "City and State"  ---  But, it's still been a pretty bad PR week for somebody whose grip on the narrative has been slipping badly lately


In case you missed this or have forgotten,  Marty G. was as high as "Number 2" on the "losers" hit parade just a couple of weeks ago: 


"Marty Golden - New York City’s school zone speed cameras have finally come to a screeching stop, while Marty Golden's Cadillac has presumably not, now that he is free of the cameras that have given him 14 tickets in the past four years. Though the GOP state senator has sort of backed up on his opposition to the life-saving program, the damage to his image has been done. Not that his image has been in tip-top shape, considering he’s also run over and killed a senior citizen and yells at law-abiding cyclists. The failure to continue the program has mostly been pinned to state Senate Republicans, which could bode poorly for Golden, who is only one of two Republican senators in New York City...."  (See "Who's up and who's down this week?" by staff, 7/26/18,  City and State/ Winners and Losers [https://www.cityandstateny.com/articles/winners-losers/winners-losers/whos-up-and-whos-down-week-july-27-2018.html]).


This week wasn't that bad  ---  but, it sure wasn't good for Marty and his gang of incompetent operators.


Time for a song for Marty, John Q, Jerry K, and the rest of the Golden re-election team:

[Cue Creedence ...]

"I see the bad moon arising

I see trouble on the way

I see earthquakes and lightnin'

I see bad times today


Don't go around tonight

Well, it's bound to take your life

There's a bad moon on the rise


I hear hurricanes a blowing

I know the end is coming soon

I fear rivers overflowing

I hear the voice of rage and ruin


Don't go around tonight

Well, it's bound to take your life

There's a bad moon on the rise


Hope you got your things together

Hope you are quite prepared to die

Looks like we're in for nasty weather

One eye is taken for an eye


Well don't go around tonight

Well it's bound to take your life

There's a bad moon on the rise

Don't go around tonight

Well, it's bound to take your life

There's a bad moon on the rise...."

If Marty changes lanes everything will work out. Change is possible. Look at our former congresswoman the conservative Susan Molinari. In 2013 she filed a brief with Supreme Court in support of same sex marriage. She switched. Or did she?

When Golden wins re-election he’ll have plenty of time to focus on Justin. But he’ll have to get in line after McCreight turns on him for humiliating him in the Assembly race. But he’ll have to wait in line after Andrew realizes Justin not only stabbed him in the back with Treyger but for Barkan too.

BACKFILL: THE "GETTING THE WHOLE STORY" EDITION

JULIANNE MC SHANE DID A GOOD JOB OF GETTING INTO THE WEEDS ABOUT LAST WEEK'S STROLL ON 3RD IMBROGLIO BETWEEN THE GOLDENs AND THE FBBRs --- SHE ALSO DUG INTO THAT BOE COMPLAINT BY THE GOLDENs

McShane's article started like this: "They want this pol to slow down and listen up....
Ten members of a progressive Bay Ridge political group targeted state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Bay Ridge) at the neighborhood’s Aug. 3 Summer Stroll by passing out hundreds of stop sign-shaped fans and reusable tote bags meant to lambast the local pol for his record on school-zone speed cameras and environmental policy. They wanted to pass out the paraphernalia at a visible neighborhood event so that Golden — who they say won’t sit down with members of their group, Fight Back Bay Ridge — would be forced to listen to constituents’ concerns, according to one member...." (See "Ridgites tangle with Golden staffers after calling out pol’s record at Summer Stroll" by Julianne McShane, 8/10/18, Courier Life's Brooklyn Daily/ News/ Politics/ Bay Ridge [https://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/33/br-bb-ss-stop-golden-stroll-2018-08-10-bk.html]).

McShane does a deep dive into Golden's complaint to the BOE about FBBR activities, as well: ".... Michael Tobman, a rep for Golden’s re-election campaign, would not comment on that matter, but he sent a July 31 letter to the state Board of Elections alleging that Fight Back Bay Ridge violated election law by failing to register as an independent expenditure committee despite raising more than $1,300 via a GoFundMe page to pay for the fans members handed out at the stroll and other measures to 'unseat' Golden, which Tobman alleged qualifies as fund-raising for 'overt, specific campaign activities.'... 'Even if initially attached to issue advocacy around community concerns, this organization’s appeal for financial support for electioneering marks an inarguable and obvious transition to campaign activities that clearly fall within the jurisdiction of your office,' Tobman wrote.... Tobman also urged the board to investigate whether the group had coordinated with Andrew Gounardes or Ross Barkan, the Democratic candidates vying to unseat Golden. And he sent a letter to GoFundMe urging the platform to suspend the group’s fund-raising account, alleging that it violated the site’s policy.... Reps for Fight Back Bay Ridge responded to the allegations with a statement alleging that when they contacted the state Board of Elections, officials told them that they would have to register since they raised more than $1,000, but that it was a 'minor issue and easily remedied, as long as we filed as soon as possible, as compliance is the ultimate goal of a complaint, not enforcement.'... Reps for the local group also apologized to locals, members, and Golden’s campaign for not filing sooner, but added that they did not plan to back down from campaigning against the pol.... 'Make no mistake — we will not allow Senator Golden to cool, threaten, or retaliate for our free speech, and we will continue to, as our name states, Fight Back,' they wrote...."

Whew !!! That's enough for you to get the idea.

Yea McShane and Cuba are so reliable as they're close friends of the founding members of the group. Here's the skinny on what really happened. FBBR tried to pull a fast one by raising money under false pretenses when people started publishing screen shots of their go fund me advocating for the defeat of Marty Golden they changed the statement on the go fund me page and quickly shut it down. BOE never tells anyone that anything is "MINOR" so caught in another lie right there. Cease and desist letter was another desperate attempt to distort the fact that are probably going to be investigated by BOE. Oh by the way...they just published pictures of a hair salon on FB calling for a BOYCOTT of the store because they claim they support Marty Golden. Sleepy Bay Ridgites waking up to what antifa wannabe thugs this group is really made of.

Anonymous said...

What planet are you on? Everything at the Board of Elections is "MINOR". It's a political body by its nature and under law; and in the end, none of its rulings are self-enforcing and are subject to de novo review by a court, especially constitutional issues.

Anonymous said...

That's why this complaint by Golden and Tobman is such a phony deal. One of the things that the Board of Elections cannot determine is whether anything is done 'under false pretenses'.

Anonymous said...

Guys I know you're upset now that you realize you have to hire a real lawyer because your scam was exposed. Complaint against FBBR multi-pronged. You can't use GO Fund Me to raise political contributions and not file a report. That's where the false pretenses part comes in. The BOE would never tell anyone that a violation was "MINOR" you're just angry that you got caught, Strupinsky is angry that he let his intern write that letter because he is now the laughingstock in the legal community. "De Novo" Review is if this goes to trial and gets appealed. You jokers don't have the horses for that and you know it. Strupinksy letter was meant to distract from possible campaign violations of FBBR but only highlighted that it's probably been a long time since anyone retained him to write anything to anyone.

I don't know if you're chasing your own tail like a puppy dog, or if you are trying to run into your own ass and disappear.
Golden and Tobman are blowing smoke at FBBR and telling them that they are on fire, and they're not. Screw Golden and Tobman, and their complaint to the BOE. I know an accountant who does elex work; he can fix this in no time.
If Golden thinks he can scam $800,000 of elex money and make a big deal out of less than a $1500 filing mistake, he's nuts.
More important Marty Golden and Michael Tobman and Simcha Felder are the devils threesome on the Yeshiva rules fix, in which Marty Golden is the most corrupted, because he is not a landsman.

Anonymous said...

2:00 is amusing. BOE never investigates FBBR until now. There are pictures of their GO Fund Me advocating for the defeat of Marty Golden. This means that they are going to have to hire a lawyer. And judging by the one they first went to, the next one is going to demand that they pay a retainer up front. Golden and having events at the Bay Ridge Manor on the other hand have been investigated exhaustively.

This Golden complaint to the BOE couldn't be more minor if it was a 49er with a daughter named 'Clementine'.
Plus, what makes anybody think that the NYC Board will even do a substantial 'investigation' of BRRC at all? This is is going to go away fast.

The veil of FBBR has been removed. They’re a local version of an aspiring Antifa group. They operated under the shadows for a long time and now everyone knows what they’re really all about. Calling for a boycott of a local Bay Rige hair salon because they claim that they expressed “support” for Marty Golden shows how far out of touch these wack jobs really are. Their strong ties to fat boy have also been exposed.

Collins isn't a lawyer, so he can't be nominated for a judgeship.

What other office can he be nominated for at this late stage?

The only other way he gets his name off the November ballot is to die or move out of state.

He already said he plans to serve out his term, so moving out of state is not an option

FBBR won the battles of the Bay Ridge strolls and look like they will dominate the streets of Bay Ridge for the whole 2018 campaign.
The next big shows should be the three big kahunas, Colleen Golden's pride & joy, this year's Ragamuffins' pizzaz, which after 2018 it will have to be called be the 'Ragin' Muffins Parade', the Third Avenue Festival, and the 2018 NY Marathon, all during campaign season.
FBBR will need to buy lots more 'Stop Marty' fans and 'Fight Back' bags, and Marty Golden will need to hire lots more 'outside' goons and learn how to pronounce 'Antifa' correctly.
Sounds like lots of fun in the fall.

SOLICITATION: THE "TALK IS CHEAP" EDITION

I CAN'T GET ANY RELIABLE INFORMATION ABOUT ANY "BOYCOTTS" OF ANY BAY RIDGE HAIRDRESSER WHO IS SUPPORTING SSMG --- MAYBE IT'S MORE JAZZ OUT OF THE MARTY GOLDEN FAKE NEWS FACTORY, LIKE FBBR IS TWEETING --- OR MAYBE IT'S REAL


FBBR's Tweets and photos indicated that the hairdresser involved was the "Bohemian Rose Hair Studio" on Third Avenue; and that anything said negative about FBBR's relations with that business, or an associated "charity," was completely fake news.

7:59 Even the morons at FBBR can’t be that stupid. They fell for Marty’s trap by basically embracing the Antifa label, “outside goons”?, the socialists from Manhattan freaked out and provoked the neighborhood to the point where even Marty haters were coming to his defense. But they if Sally and Mal have momey to burn after they have to hire lawyers for the investigation, they should buy and hand out as many of those totes as they can especially at the Ragamuffin Parade. Only proves Golden’s point. Friday They turned the Stroll into an ugly political brawl, yesterday they attacked a small business and called for a boycott, now they are planning on attacking young families. These trolls watch too much Rachel Maddow.

8:50 AM, 7:59 didn't say anything about the August 10 Stroll on 3rd being 'an ugly political brawl' - you must mean 8:37 AM'.

Anyway, 8:37 AM must be somebody kinda new to the Marty store's revolving door of 'social media' and blogger spokesfolks. 'Antifa' 'Antifa' 'Antifa' what's that all about?

It must mean something Michael Tobman came up with. He's the latest guru sent in by the Ortho-Jewish Cabal to save their lap dummy 'Marty'. If Marty wants to make 'Antifa' such a big deal, tell him how to pronounce it right, and lose the 1950s Bay Ridge accent, it ain't 'ANN-TEEEE-FUH'.

MEANWHILE I DID FIND A TRAIL LEADING TO WHERE THIS STORY MIGHT BE COMING FROM..... THE "HAIRDRESSER BOYCOTT" THING SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN A >>> SOMEBODY IN BAY RIDGE TOLD ME <<< STORY BEING SPREAD BY AN ABSOLUTE >>> OUTSIDER <<< WITH SOME HEAVY-WEIGHT (FOR REPUBLICANS THESE DAYS) STATE-WIDE GOP CONNECTIONS

THE REAL CULPRIT, THOUGH, IS THAT MARTY GOLDEN SATELLITE OPERATION >>> SOUTH BROOKLYN RED <<< THAT RE-TWEETED THE STORY FROM ALEXANDRA KILLIAN

This from a lead from one of my occasional BSIs:
It seems that Alexandra Killian (yes, an outsider, and the daughter of a state-wide GOP candidate) heard from two of her friends in Bay Ridge that "BLAH-BLAH-BLAH" hearts and flowers, terrible, terrible, terrible…. So she Tweeted it to South Brooklyn Red, and it's up on the SBR site. There it is rank hearsay.....

How much do you want to bet that the "two friends" from BR are two hard core Golden-bots, and probably have ties to South Brooklyn Red, as well.

GM seriously my man...you have a nice little blog here but if you actually go on Facebook you’ll find their post about boycotting that small business.

SORRY TO WHOMEVER YOU MIGHT BE, I THINK THAT MOST OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IS SHAM COMMENTARY and FAKE NEWS


I read Justin's statement, which actually did mention the business "Bohemian Rose" --- he absolutely did not call out FBBR for any boycott..... Furthermore, as I mentioned above FBBR previously denied participating in any alleged actions against the Bohemian Rose Hair Studio.

I still have not found any solicitation(s) for any boycott of any Bay Ridge business(es) for supporting the re-election of Marty Golden on any social media sites. So I reiterate my prior request that you come up with the goods to back up YOUR VERSION OF EVENTS, to which I attach almost no credence, at the present time.

Galewyn it’s screenshoted on Liam McCabe’s Facebook the group was also writing all of these supportive comments and they mysteriously vanished when there was a backlash against them even from avowed Marty haters. FBBR does fall for boycotts on Twitter where they are not as restrained.

Special thanks for exposing the information of Alexandra Killian's entanglement with John Seravalli. That's the missing piece that shows what the picture in the puzzle really is. "Two friends" from "Bay Ridge" --- indeed !!!

This alleged "boycott" story now looks more like a closed circle fake news operation that begins and ends with Marty Golden's supporters and/or staff. (Let's see if anybody comes up with any proof of an attempt to generate a boycott aimed at any 3rd Avenue Merchant.....)

That shows how much Justin and his gossiping harpies know. Alexandra and John aren't dating anymore but they're still friends. This is classic fat ass Justin spreading lies because he and his front group were caught red handed calling for a boycott of a local business. Now fat boy has to take it back.
