Vote the Row B TicketDA Brown and the Former Councilman He Convicted of Sexual Assaulting A Woman
Only in Queens can and disgraced council member who after he pleas guilty of sexual assaulting a woman run for a political party position in Queens. With the media not covering the undemocratic political parties of NY, anything goes. Gallagher was allowed to plea bargained to a misdemeanor by the Queens' DA. DA's tend to go lightly on corrupt pols, mostly giving them a pass by overlooking corruption because the pols and county parties they represent are important to their reelection. Queens DA Brown has be embarrass by the NYP today because he did not expect Gallagher to come back as a party official/political consultant. Where are the women's and good government groups to protest Gallagher? Until today's article they did not even know he was running.

As part of his plea deal, Gallagher, 43, will not serve jail time for forcible touching and sexual abuse. He agreed to resign from office by April 18 and undergo alcohol counseling.

Officials from the warring factions of the Queens Republican Party have been stationed at the Board of Elections all week analyzing each others' county committee member petitions. One wild card: indicted Queens GOP operative John Haggerty, who has been doing line-by-line reviews of petitions for candidates supported by his rival, Queens GOP chairman Phil Ragusa. Haggerty learned the art of kicking candidates off the ballot at the knee of masters like Stanley Schlein and the now deceased Robert Muir. And despite his legal troubles, Haggerty's prowess in the area is such that he still gets brought in for petition challenge and recount work around the state. Petition challenges for the Queens elections begin next week.
