    Joseph J. Dioguardi is a former member of Congress from New York and Certified Public Accountant. Dioguardi in his book “Unaccountable Congress: It Doesn’t Add Up” lists the top twelve gimmicks Congress uses to hide the true costs of government from the people. These gimmicks have been used for decades by both Republican and Democrat administrations, Congresses under both parties and government agencies. The idea behind these gimmicks is to “[K]eep Americans in the dark (or – I should say – in the red!), writes, Dioguardi. Dioguardi calls this “plastic budgeting”. As David A. Stockman, former Director of the Office...

    NY Times ^ | October 28, 2010 | MICHAEL BARBARO and DAVID W. CHEN
    There he goes again. Carl P. Paladino, the Republican candidate for governor, promised he would be politically incorrect. He wasn’t kidding. On Thursday, during a rally in Hicksville, N.Y., he called the state’s junior United States senator, Kirsten E. Gillibrand, “Schumer’s little girl.” It was an apparent reference to Ms. Gillibrand’s close relationship with Senator Charles E. Schumer, but Mr. Paladino’s dismissive description of the only woman to hold statewide elected office in New York jolted the political world. His comments were reported on the Web site of Newsday and by NY1. Mr. Paladino, a businessman from Buffalo, has previously...

    U.S. Senate candidate Joe DioGuardi has been warning Americans about public debt and wasteful spending for over 20 years. New York’s pied piper of fiscal common sense is a certified public accountant who authored a primer on cleaning up public finance in 1992. “Unaccountable Congress” does for the Tea Party movement what Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” did for the American Revolution. This was a call to action that preceded the “Contract With America” by two years. DioGuardi’s story is drawn from events and life experience before Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980. The former Congressman wrote the “How To” book...

    ....The SEC described DioGuardi, who faces incumbent Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in next month's election, as an "old crony" of the company's bosses and suggested "he's connected to the original fraudulent scheme." As of last November, thousands of investors were owed $1 billion. The feds froze the company's assets; the case is pending. MCH moved last year to have DioGuardi replace a court-appointed manager of its assets, which include the $3.2 million yacht Home Stretch and the $18.1 million movie rights to the recent flick "The Perfect Game."....

    NEW YORK - Joe DioGuardi, Conservative Party nominee and GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate, scored a victory in the U.S. Senate race's first debate today. DioGuardi highlighted his plan to create jobs in New York by putting a greater focus on infrastructure development, cutting wasteful government spending, and improving the federal accounting process. "The people deserve to know exactly who they are voting for," said DioGuardi. "It is no mystery that Gillibrand has been hiding from Empire State voters this entire campaign. Clearly, she wants to hide her flip-flops on issues, her involvement in the subprime mortgage crisis, and...

    Joseph DioGuardi gesticulates vivaciously — a habit perhaps inherited, if the stereotype is to be believed, from his Italian-born father. He speaks with an accent retained from childhood in the East Bronx, with rhotacisms laid over precise and racing speech about budget and austerity. DioGuardi has risen from busboy, to accountant, to congressman (NY-20 from 1984 to 1988), and, now, to Senate candidate. His favorite gimmick is to take out his old congressional voting card and do this spiel: “This is really a credit card, because every time you put it in, you raise the national debt. It’s the most...

    ALBANY -- Republican Joe DioGuardi slammed rival Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand yesterday for voting twice to raise the federal debt ceiling, and vowed to shut down the government before taking a similar vote. "You are not going to get from me what you got from Kirsten Gillibrand," the accountant and former congressman told a group of business leaders and Republicans. "She gave the Obama administration an open checkbook." [Snip] Gillibrand has twice joined her fellow Democrats to raise the legal limit on the debt the federal government can carry.

    If you've been following the New York Senate polls closely for the last year, you've noticed that Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has been hovering around 50 percent for most of the past two years. This is dangerous territory for any incumbent to be in - by my count, only three incumbents in the last three years who averaged less than 50 percent in August polling have gone on to win in November... --snip-- Conclusion DioGuardi isn't likely to win, but it certainly is possible. The SurveyUSA poll is a best-case scenario for DioGuardi among current polling, but it nevertheless depicts...

    The Constitution provides that each state shall have two senators, not one senator with two votes -- reason enough for New Yorkers to support ex-Rep. Joe DioGuardi over very-junior US Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Nov. 2. There is scarcely enough room to slide a slip of paper between Gillibrand and senior Sen. Chuck Schumer -- which speaks poorly enough of them both... --snip-- He's not a household name. But he's running for a two-year term, and would have to face the voters again in 2012. At the very least, DioGuardi deserves a chance to prove he's up to the job. Kirsten...

    American Thinker ^ | September 29, 2010 | Fred J. Eckert
    Desperately trying to think of something both positive and credible to say about New York State's accidental U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blurted out that Gillibrand is the Senate's "hottest" member. Reid's remark, made on September 20 at a ritzy private Democratic Party fundraiser in Manhattan, was sufficiently unimportant to qualify for massive media coverage.     Unfortunately for Senator Gillibrand, part of the fallout from this particular instance of media pursuit of the trivia has been to make New York State residents more aware of her and curious about her record. What they are now beginning...

Mujaj in the Wall Street Journal Blog. “The American people have spoken,” this self-styled compatriot of ours is telling us. “The American way of life needs to be rebalanced. Households need to stop spending what they don’t have. Local and state governments need to slash their budgets to live off whatever tax revenues they generate [...] The American people voted for change.” What Mr. Mujaj does not mention is that former Congressman DioGuardi is...

    New York may emerge as the epicenter of a political earthquake on Nov. 2. This longtime blue-state bystander could elect a Republican governor, dethrone House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and topple the Democratic majority in the US Senate. Yesterday's unveiling of the GOP "Pledge to America" recalls the "Contract with America" of 1994 -- but 2010 is shaping up to be a larger upheaval. In the Empire State, the GOP primaries tested the establishment candidates for governor and senator and found them wanting. In their place, primary voters nominated two feisty, scrappy contenders with hearts and souls not far from the...
