GOP Uses Government $$$ to Keep the Indepence Party Going

GOP Puppet Party
 The No. 2 official in the state Independence Party has landed on his feet after losing a $100,000-a-year job in the state Senate two years ago.
His new gig? What else but a new job with the state Senate, this time at $75,000 a year.  Records show Tom Connolly, vice chairman of the influential third party, was hired by Republican state Sen. Philip Boyle (R-Islip) soon after he was elected in a tight race last November with support from both the Independence and Conservative parties. Indie big nabs $weet new gig(NYP) 

Connolly Never Charged Was the Guy Who Moved the Move the Mayors Million to Haggerty 
 GOP consultant John Haggerty, was convicted of swiping $750,000 of $1.2 million channeled by Mayor Bloomberg through the party’s “housekeeping” account in 2009 for what was supposed to be an election day poll-watching operation.

  • Haggerty Contract Is Said Backdated (By MICHAEL HOWARD SAUL, Wall Street Journal) Under cross-examination, Mr. Connolly said the mayor lost all control of the $1.2 million once he sent it to the party. Asked if the mayor could earmark the money specifically for ballot security, Mr. Connolly said he "can make a request" but whether that is "honored or not" is up to the party.
  • NY party official testifies at operative's trial (Associated Press, Wall Street Journal) Haggerty approached Connolly in August 2009 to say that "a donation would be coming from the mayor, and it would be their wish that they would use that toward a ballot security operation" that would run up to $1.1 million, Connolly told jurors. He said he checked with some people he didn't name to ensure the arrangement was legal, and then went ahead with it, relying on what Haggerty had told him about the planned operation.

The News examines how the rolls of registered Independence Party voters increased over the past four years due to confusion over registering with “Independence” rather than an “Independent
Independence Party’s confusing name has tricked thousands of New Yorkers(NYDN) Anti-Semitic Jew Fred Newman led his cult-like followers to Independence Party power in New York City(NYDN) He was also shrink who pushed patient-therapist sex Eventually, Newman and Fulani became too much of an embarrassment for statewide party leaders. Chairman Frank MacKay moved to boot them, but the New York Court of Appeals ruled in 2007 that the Newmanites could keep power in the city as long as they met enormously stringent organizing requirements set by law. Those challenges are daunting even to the Democratic Party machines. But Newman had an advantage. He was surrounded by zealous devotees, many of whom lived with him in a West Village townhouse, many of whom are so worshipful they appear in stage plays he had written.

Meantime, in the city, the unemployment rate jumped up three-tenths of a point to 9.1% in January — despite a substantial gain of 19,000 jobs. Amazingly, the city has more jobs today than it’s ever had before, nearly 4 million, yet unacceptably large numbers of people are on the outside looking in.

Soccer Stadium

Following in Hiram's footsteps(Queens Crap)

Letter to the Editor (Queens Chronicle):  The Chronicle’s admonition to City Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras to reject the proposed soccer stadium in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, while well intentioned, will in my opinion fall on deaf ears (“Preserve, don’t pervert, Flushing Meadows,” Editorial, Feb. 28). Ms. Ferreras has stated she would support the USTA’s expansion in FMCP, a Major Soccer League stadium in the park and the Mets owner Wilpon’s proposal to build a huge shopping mall on its current parking lots, which like Citi Field are on parkland, provided these three commercial entities set up a fund for the benefit of the park. In the depths of the Great Depression of the 1930s, New York City did not sell, barter or alienate public parkland for economic reasons and there is no justification to do so at this time.
