Steeplechase Strategies, Inc. --- In-and-for politics it's your "Premiere Political Consultant Agency" --- IF YOU WANT YOUR STRATEGY TO BE DEFEAT


Yes, the time has come to torch this bunch of parvenue "consultants" who have turned their brand of political montbankerie into an art  ---  and fleeced quite a few naive and unsuspecting GOP victims in the process [they have felt free to try to invade my domain here on this blog --- so turn-about is fair play]



The principals,  Liam McCabe, Robert Morgan, Alexandra Sherer, Nachman Mostofsky and Christine Sisto are all pretty well known to Brooklyn Republicans  ---  HOWEVER  ---   only one of them,  Liam McCabe, actually is a Brooklyn Republican [and he only a recent and opportunistic convert  to the fold;  you see, he is a "recovering..."  member of the Conservative Party]



So why all the consulting work for Brooklyn Republicans ?   Don't YOU think that's a good question ???   What is their rather recent juice and cred with the Kings County GOP generally, and significant pockets within that so-called "county" organization, in particular ?????



Well listen my children, and you will hear......  Do duh name,  Jazzy Kuhzah, mean sumptin to yuhz ???    



Okay, how about Jerry Kassar ?????   Yes, the once upon a time Chairman of the Kings County Conservative Party;  oh, and don't forget soon to be ex-Chief-of-Staff to the soon to be ex-State Senator Martin J. Golden.  You see Kassar has used his gunzels (love that word; and all that it means) from Steeplechase Strategies, Inc. to maintain his control over the Brooklyn GOP and most of its candidates ever since his "boss" Marty took over the Brooklyn GOP and installed Ted Ghorra as "Chairman."

All of this is pretty well known to most of the real Brooklyn Republicans,  many of whom took a walk on the wild side in 2018,  and decided to try "good government independence" for a change.....    BYE-BYE MARTY.....   BYE-BYE DANNY BOY.....   (Everybody knows what you do with used-up scumbags  ---  you just give them the "deep six".....)

WHAT TO DO ABOUT STEEPLECHASE STRATEGIES INC.

If anybody needs a pox on their houses it's this crew.  

They tout themselves as "Reliable"......   Christine's recent Al-Anon memo about Liam says it all on this subject.....   But, if you focus on Bob and Allie,  you'll see that they are even more of a "bag of glass" for the kids to play with.  They have yet to find a campaign to which they can't bring their own special brand of FUBAR..... 

After being underlings in a few campaigns here, there and god-knows-wherever,  this crew of miscreants have fancied themselves "experts" on the following:  "Direct Mail";  "Robo-calls & Surveys"; "Graphic Design"; "Web Design";  "Fund Raising";  and " Branding".....

Generally,  just look at what this crew has done recently in Brooklyn:   2017 -- the primary campaign of Liam McCabe -- LOSS;  2018 --  the primary campaign of Michael Grimm  --  LOSS: 2018 --  the general campaign of Steve Saperstein -- LOSS;  2018 --  the general election campaign of Marty Golden -- LOSS.   Forget any of the subspecialties in those fiascos.  [A real expert on these matters, with many Republican clients over the years, that I know pretty well tells me that their work in all these areas is worse than "sub-standard".....]

"Web Design" -- Whoa !!!  What a joke ---  just look at their own web page and look at "Testimonials".......   GIVE ME A BREAK !!!   What a look.....  What's with all that Latin ?????

And best of all "Branding".....   This from the crew that decided to re-brand the Metropolitan Republican Club into an  "OPEN MIKE NIGHT FOR RIGHT WING HATERS CLUB"  ---  OR  ---  "THE PROUD BOYS VERY OWN METROPOLITAN REPUBLICAN CLUB".....

But don't take it from me; ask their friends and enemies.  I'm sure that you'll find plenty of the latter;  the former, eh maybe, not so much.

Re: Team Steeplechase. This is littered with non truths. Just look at the campaign finance records. McCabe sold the company in 2017. In fact Mccabes top consultant was Gerry O'Brien... Steeplechase Strategies wasn't paid a dime. The company did not work for Saperstein this year nor Michael Grimm and the only work they did for Marty Golden in 2018 was for petitions. Again, look at the campaign finance filings.. this "voo doo" narrative about the folks associated with Steeplechase are based in non-truths and jealousy to the only folks that want to fight the uphill battle of getting Republicans elected in the Dark Blue City of New York. What gives with the hatred to this group from people who profess themselves to be Republicans?

SPECIAL NOTICE: THE "A COMPLAINT FROM SOMEBODY NO LONGER ASSOCIATED WITH STEEPLECHASE....." EDITION

YES, MY "HIT PIECE" ON STEEPLECHASE STRATEGIES, INC. DID ENGENDER A RESPONSE FROM A PERSON THAT I MIGHT HAVE WRONGLY REFERRED TO AS A "PRINCIPAL" OF THAT COMPANY --- LIAM MC CABE

During a lengthy phone call, Mr. McCabe had lots of complaints about my feature post above. For my part, I explained how I had sourced my material largely from the Steeplechase Strategies, Inc. web page and long-commented upon material on this blog. And as such, that's why I didn't think anything needed any "confirmation," as such.

Since much of Mr. McCabe's call dealt with what he called inaccuracies concerning Steeplechase Strategies, Inc., I agreed to revisit the material above after a long sit-down with him, which we agreed would take place some time after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Basically, Liam maintained that Steeplechase did not have a hand in any of the races that I had held up as "Losses"..... We'll leave it to a later date to see if I'm wrong, or whether he is just spitting hairs.

Meanwhile, my post above will stand as written --- after all, one can't un-ring a bell once it's been sounded anyway; and contrary corrective comments are always welcome here as part of the coin of the realm ( I believe at least one has been made already).

Thank you all for your interest in these and other related matters.

Come on GM which Steeplechase is Saperstein referring to then on Twitter? I wouldn’t blame Liam if he wants to distance himself from these people as he probably realizes it was a mistake to partner with them. Guessing they’re blaming Liam for Saps defeat in case Jerry can’t find them they’re next failed assignment.

Anonymous said...

Liam may have 'technically' sold his share of the firm, but the last few months on social media makes it clear that he, his long-suffering fiance, and the east side psychos are all just peas in a pod.

Real question is what do these 'consultants' do? Liem's day job is driving a car, his fiance is a full time law school student, one of the psychos is an extra on a TV show about 42nd street hookers, and the other is a trust fund baby who works for RAC, the special olympics of legislative campaign committees in New York.

Who in their right mind would hire them? You get better odds at a homeless shelter with a stack of singles and a bottle of Night Train Express.

Anonymous said...

6: 50 they don’t need anyone in their “right minds” to hire them. They have Jerry who uses them to do his bidding in exchange for continuing to get them roles on campaigns. Eventually he’ll completley destroy any remaining viable seats and they’ll have to find another state to lose campaigns in.

Anonymous said...

So Steeplechase was hired to get Golden signatures so he could get on the ballot. Golden got on the ballot.

GWM if the entire point of this story is false maybe consider something not false.

Anonymous said...

It’s funny how they are running away from their own once much vaunted company. Golden used them for petitioning courtesy of Jerry, then they got on the Saperstein campaign because of Jerry, once there they kicked Steve’s Bay Ridge guy out of the joint campaign office so they could assume a visible role in the Golden campaign. Eerily similar to the plot of a horror movie and unfortunately for Senator Golden, their arrival there sealed his fate.

The New York State and Brooklyn GOP have to axe the NYS Conservative Party completely and absolutely.

The New York Conservatives are not a party, they are a fatal disease.

The Conservatives blaming Liam is rich indeed. Dovetails nicely with rumors that Manhattan couple trying to distance themselves from Liam and blame him for another string of crushing defeats. Let’s put aside the fake news though, Liam was basically the only normal approachable functioning operative they had. Jerry now desperate to repair relationship with Liam he’s making all sorts of gestures to get him back on his side. Jerry didn’t step aside he was told to step aside and he probably wouldn’t even be Marty’s Chief of Staff had Golden won. He’s despised in and out of conservative and GOP circles in Brooklyn, if Liam doesn’t come to his rescue, all Jerry has left is Ted and the psychos. Jerry wishes Liam would come back to him.

Marty lost thanks to Jerry and the crew he assembled. It’s that simple. He has never won a competitive race and had wrecked countless other campaigns that should have been able to compete. With him everything is about absolute power and intimidation the results almost don’t matter at all as long as he in charge. Just ask Saperstein.

Marty delivered a lot of money to this district and started off with a huge lead in the polls. He let Jerry assemble a highly paid crew of incompetents who never had a grasp of social media and modern day messaging. Instead of Jerry stepping back and letting Marty bring in professionals he let Jerry keep bringing in his hacks which alienated everyone even further. Marty’s campaign decided to spend the last weekend before the election accusing Gounardes of possibly making it easier for voters to become victims of burglary. This is what they led with on social media.

Anonymous said...

For Golden it was the karma of a boomerang and backfire campaign all through 2018. It was a long time building to a critical mass, but finally ignited near the end of the campaign.
For years, Marty Golden cast his lot completely with the Conservatives led in Brooklyn by Kassar and screwed the Republicans at every turn. In the end, there was no Brooklyn GOP left to fall back on, and Ghorra was left holding the bag. Instead of GOP volunteers, in the end Kassar had to bring in Liam and his Steeplechase crowd.
There's a picture going around that tells the whole back story. It's of Marty Golden at the Manor talking to Mike Long on Election Night. That snapshot was like a vignette of Faust talking to Mefistofeles. Mike is probably telling Marty, "Well kid, it's time for you to go to hell, it was part of your deal all along."

Ulrich portrays himself as the only Republican in Public Advocate race and Mr. Republican writing oP ed on how to improve GOP bit didn't support his own nominee for Mayor but now expects Republicans to rally around him for Public advocate. Liam has a lot of answering to do, and I hear a contingent of Staten Island and Bay Ridge Republicans will be outside the meeting protesting Ulrich and Liam for inviting him..this should be fun

There is no hope for any future for a Republican Party in Brooklyn from any of these people: Nicole Malliotakis, Eric Ulrich, Liam McCabe or anybody associated with Steeplechase Strategies, John Quaglione, Bob Capano, Ted Ghorra, Craig Eaton, Jerry Kassar, Gerry O'Brien, Anthony Testaverde, Nachman Caller, David Storobin, Russell Gallo, Gene Berardelli, Arnaldo Ferraro, Lucretia Potter, and more than anybody else Marty Golden.

There is only one guy that needs to figure things out on his own and decide if he wants to lead the Brooklyn GOP into the future; and that is Steve Saperstein. He has worked with the few new active Brooklyn Republicans not named above and some are even in his in his circle. He even put a significant pocket of support together in the 46th AD, out in Manhattan and Brighton Beaches.

Anonymous said...

7:57 The wannabe "hotshots" from the Saperstein campaign need to sit down, be quiet, and listen. Steve is a smart dynamic guy who had the wrong team. He has a lot of catching up to do with all of the names you listed. A Russian Jewish candidate running against a Black candidate with no money, who is bragging about doing well in Brighton Beach is not going to impress anyone outside the campaign. People on Steve's campaign who were calling the shots should have been interns who were listening to seasoned professionals and being mentored by them.

There is no sugarcoating it. Steve disappointed in his loss to Deutsch and he shockingly disappointed against Mathylde Frontus, it is not a personal reflection on Steve and I think he has a bright future but it hardly makes the argument that Steve is ready for prime time.

Besides, Nicole's best days are behind her, and they weren't so great to start with. Bring back Janelle as a Republican, she still has some juice. Even with her "Shelley" history, she'd kick Nicole's ass in a GOP primary, because Nicole is the "Odd Man Out" in Staten Island politics.

836, 'triggered loose cannons'! Do you even know the meaning and significance of the term 'loose cannon'?

Regardless of what faction you support, the downfall started when groups from Staten Island and Brooklyn got together to take away the nomination from Nicole Malliotakis for the special congressional election in 2015. The only person who legitimately and loudly supported Nicole back then was Craig Eaton. Jerry pulled off his usual behind the scenes deal, and if anyone doubts it remember that while the stafffing of the Donovan SI office changed dramatically, the Brooklyn office did not have even one change. It was still staffed by the all of the same people who were with Grimm members of the Kings County conservative.

My problem is anyone who goes to that event and then acts like they’re friends with Malliotakis. Ulrich did horrible stuff against her in the Mayoral campaign some claiming he went so far as to depose Queens Chair Bob Turner and going after senior staff of her Mayoral campaign. In my personal opinion Ulrich is an irrelevant buffoon desperate for attention. We should ignore him and not show up for his appearance.

Liam McCabe started his brand new "Republican Club" out of nothing and for no good reason in the middle of tough campaigns for Saperstein, Golden and Donovan. It is going nowhere, because McCabe isn't a real Republican, he is a long-time Kings County Conservative in sheep's clothing. Ulrich isn't even from Brooklyn, so how can he help Liam or his club.

One day Liam, the Conservative, woke up and thought, "I can stay a follower in the Conservative Party or be a leading candidate and/or a boss in the Republican Party." So he
switched into being a "Republican," just like that. Then he didn't try to work his way up in any existing club, instead he immediately launched his own campaign for City Council.

Can anybody name any long-time Republican or Conservative operative that likes and trusts Liam, and is willing to vouch that he is a dependable candidate, consultant or operative of any kind.
