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:
