Silver Responds To Paladino ‘Criminal’ Slam
05 October 2010, 2:58 pm by Nick Reisman Speaking at a Crain’s New York Business function earlier today, Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino called Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan, a criminal and warned legislators “don’t mess with me.” It’s a long line in a list of jabs Paladino, a wealthy Buffalo businessman, has taken at Silver, the powerful Assembly speaker whose held the post since 1994. Paladino has suggested he would take Silver up to an upstate prison and allow townspeople along the way to “beat up on him a little.” Silver this afternoon issued a brief statement saying he won’t get bogged down “into the gutter with Mr. Paladino.” “It is unfortunate that New Yorkers are being forced to endure the insulting and baseless hectoring of the Republican candidate for governor,” Silver said. “I will not get into the gutter with Mr. Paladino, nor dignify his comments with a response. Rather, I will let New Yorkers judge his fitness for public office.” _______________________________________________

Our entire upstate delegation of Republican Congressmen along with Congresswoman Elise Stefanik have recently shown their lack of metal, the latest being their alliance with the RINO Establishment on the budget and debt ceiling bill – using the nonsensical excuse that that would be the last appeasement to the Dems and Ryan could start with a clean slate. Instead of keeping their word to their constituents that they would fight for republican conservative values they appear as useless eunuchs who will say whatever it takes to get elected but later drink the Washington cool aid because they have no real values. They should be climbing onto the Trump bus. Read more ›
The noose is tightening.
The Buffalo News won’t republish this story (below) because it involves former publisher Stan Lipsey’s BFF -Jordan Levy, an opportunist who washed money and invested funds for lucrative profits for Sheldon Silver in return for a “nice” quid pro quo.
Levy said he was not involved in any criminal acts when his name was first connected to Silver but now we learn that he made a deal with the Feds to avoid prosecution and chirped like a bird about his bad acts at Silver’s trial.
The encore ought to be the investigation of Andrew Cuomo and the present New York State Comptroller, Tom DiNapoli, a former Assemblyman and ‘lackey’ of Sheldon Silver, who Silver sponsored for the Comptroller office when Alan Hevesi (another Silver lackey) was indicted for taking a bribe from Steve Rattner. Cuomo fixed a deal giving Rattner immunity from prosecution after he took the ‘Fifth’…. 55 times! The multi-millionaire ‘briber’ was given immunity to testify against the ‘bribee’. (All pigs are equal but some pigs are more equal than others.) Read more ›
