Stop the Corrupt D'Amato machine and the big government Dems in NY

“The Reintroduction of Kirsten Gillibrand” (New York Magazine, 6/7/09)

* Her father was very close to D’Amato, Pataki, and Mario Cuomo. * Twice she was a summer intern in Senator D’Amato’s office in Albany. * She was awarded a clerkship with Court of Appeals judge Roger Minor. She received the highly coveted position despite not finishing in the top 10 percent of her law class (UCLA, class of ’91). “It was assumed that she received the position based on her father’s D’Amato connections.”

“Paterson to City: Drop Dead.” (Mother Jones, 1/23/09)

* Gillibrand interned for D’Amato, and she served directly under Andrew Cuomo when he ran HUD. Her father was close to both D’Amato and Mario Cuomo, Andrew’s father.

“Gillibrand and Paterson: The D’Amato Connection” (Village Voice, 1/27/09)

* Her father Doug “was so close to D’Amato that, while still married to Gillibrand’s mother, he covertly double-dated with the then single senator, squiring a D’Amato press aide (Zenia Mucha) on a two-week Caribbean tryst to celebrate the senator’s re-election in 1992.” * At the 90-minute press conference where Governor Paterson announced Gillibrand would fill Hillary’s vacant Senate seat, Al D’Amato stood closer to her than Paterson or anyone else. In fact, “Paterson’s staff kept the dignitaries in a holding room and walked them onto the stage in a prearranged order, positioning D’Amato at center stage.” * D’Amato, by the way, “may be Paterson’s largest single fundraiser.” In November 2008, “D’Amato hosted a $1,000-a-plate dinner for Paterson.” * Perhaps it is no coincidence, then, that “David and Chris Boies, Gillibrand’s former law partners and biggest backers of her political career, gave $75,000 to Paterson,” $50,000 of which was donated in the middle of Paterson’s two-month selection process.

Gillibrand was appointed by the unelected Gov. Paterson after her former law partners donated $50K to his campaign chest.

She voted against defunding ACORN.

She voted against a moratorium on earmarks.

She flip-flops on issues depending upon who is funding her-- a total sell-out.

All New Yorkers, get out the vote and get Gillibrand out of office.

NY Republicans, even when they held the statehouse have long acted in concert with the majority Dems. Each party’ leaders are in bed like Matalin and Carville. D’Amato has always been about delivering jobs to the party loyalists. That’s how things worked in Hempstead Town and Nassau County. I am close to some younger GOP leaders, my cousin’s kids, who are moving into position on Long Isand to oust the last of D’Amato’s zombies and build a new party.They’re bright, hard working, conservative,and with records of leadership and success, and they’re in contact with others across the state.

Gillibrand, has a 100% rating from NARAL and Planned Parenthood, and is such a strong abortion proponent that she even voted No on restricting UN funding for population control policies, which would mean your tax dollars would pay for abortions in foreign countries.

Sen. Gillibrand voted 98% with her Party, which obviously includes the massive spending the Democratic Party added to the debt.

Gillibrand was for our Second Amendment rights as congresswoman in her relatively conservative district, but weak on our Second Amendment rights after she became U.S. Senator and was encouraged to change her position by Sen. Schumer.

“She voted against defunding ACORN.”

Even Schumer voted to defund ACORN, when it came to light how ACORN was so heavily involved in voter fraud (across the country).

If Kirsten Gillibrand is reelected, she could be that 60th vote in the Senate, and add trillions of more dollars to our debt, because the Democrats would have a super majority.

If Joe DioGuardi wins the race, he could be the 51st Republican senator to stop such spending. Joe wrote a book on fiscal conservatism when fiscal conservatism wasn’t as cool as it is today. His book is called: “Unaccountable Congress – It Doesn’t Add Up.” (2002)

When he was a junior representative member of Congress, DioGuardi introduced the “Chief Financial Officer and Federal Reform Act,” to help bring fiscal conservatism to Washington, D.C.’s budget process, and the bill was signed into law. If we had more politicians like DioGuardi, we wouldn’t be in such a fiscal mess.

Joe DioGuardi is pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, pro-Pay-Go and a CPA, just who we need in the U.S. Senate.

Anybody see Joe DioGuardi on Fox tonight on Hannity’s show?

Since NY polls showed Paladino behind 1 point in the primary, and then Paladino wins by 25 points, maybe Hannity figures DioGuardi has a chance, even though he, too, is behind in the polls.

I don’t have cable, so if anyone saw it, please tell us a bit about the interview.
