UTY BBQ and Yorktown Town Board raises

Dear members:

This is a reminder of the UTY's BBQ at my house at 2635 Dunning Drive in Yorktown on this Wednesday August 27, at 6:30 PM call me if you need directions at 245-1018. Go to the back of my house. I need you to bring $10.00 for dues and a chair. The menu will be steak, Dennis's sausage and peppers, Hot dogs and hamburgers. I will supply soda and bottle water. Please come and meet some of the other members of the UTY. 

We need to nominate and elect our UTY's  officers.

The UTY needs you to come to the Town Board's meeting on Sept. 2, at 7:30PM. I don't known if you heard that the Town Board gave themselves raises that was not the meeting agenda. We must stop these raise increases. These raises are also now to follow the bargaining agreement with CSEA a labor union that represents the employees of the town. This means "WAR". 

Ed Ciffone Your UTY President

Cox: Cuomo lacks the nerve to engage in serious debate

518.462.2601


ALBANY...NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement regarding Andrew Cuomo's refusal to agree to one-on-one debates with either his Democratic primary opponent Zephyr Teachout or Republican candidate Rob Astorino:

"Democracy demands debates, but Andrew Cuomo is keeping New Yorkers in the dark because he knows that his administration's political fiction and fraud cannot stand the light of day.

"Andrew Cuomo lacks the nerve to engage in serious debate because he knows that talented candidates like Rob Astorino and Zephyr Teachout would lay bare his administration's failures: Andrew Cuomo's New York is the most taxed, most regulated state in America with the highest debt per capita and highest energy costs and is the worst place to retire or start a business."

Earlier today, Rob Astorino released a video calling on Andrew Cuomo to agree to debate his opponents:

NOTE: The letter below is being sent to New York television station managers today in response to a scurrilous smear ad now airing on behalf of Andrew Cuomo. We thought you would be interested.

 
August 25, 2014

Dear Madam/Sir:

This letter is prompted by a grossly misleading television ad now being run on your stations by the Democratic State Committee on behalf of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo regarding frivolous allegations in a lawsuit entitled The Westchester County Independence Party, et al. v. Robert P. Astorino, et al. (the "Federal Lawsuit").  I am writing, as campaign manager for Astorino for Governor and on the advice of counsel, to request that the commercial be immediately pulled from the air.

The television ad, like the Federal Lawsuit, is a palpable litigation stunt which is false, misleading and scandalous.

The political, vacuous nature of the Federal Lawsuit is exposed by the plaintiffs themselves - a strip club owner and self-proclaimed publisher (Sam Zherka); a long-time political operative (Giulio Cavallo) who, until recently, was the subject of the now notoriously dismantled Moreland Commission.  Cavallo sought, and was appropriately denied, the position of Westchester County Health Commissioner, a position for which he was unqualified; a government employee (Dhyalma Vazquez) who was also properly denied a promotion for which she was not qualified and a former County employee (Irma Drace), who lost her County job because she was unable to pass the required Civil Service Test.

On October 31, 2013, these individuals, all of whom are long-standing political operatives and members of the Westchester County Independence Party, filed the Federal Lawsuit purporting to allege various civil claims, including a claim under the RICO statute, the Hatch Act and certain constitutional claims.  Predictably, the plaintiffs conducted a press conference announcing the filing of the complaint in the hope it would derail Mr. Astorino's 2013 re-election as County Executive.  This tactic failed, with Mr. Astorino winning re-election by a landslide.

On its face, the original Federal Lawsuit was laughably deficient and sanctionable under Rule 11 F.R.Civ.P.  Realizing this reality, the plaintiffs voluntarily amended the complaint as of right, filing a second amended complaint.  This pleading was equally frivolous and meritless.  Nonetheless, the predictable second press conference followed.

In March 11, 2014, the defendants requested permission from the Court to (1) dismiss the amended complaint on multiple, equally compelling grounds and (2) seek monetary sanctions against the plaintiffs and their attorneys.  Among other things, the County Executive and the co-defendants pointed out that the RICO claim failed to allege, let alone satisfy, any of the well-settled pleading requirements under the RICO law.

Recognizing the glaring fatal defects of the Federal Lawsuit, following a hearing the Court granted plaintiffs' request for "one last chance" to file a valid complaint.  Plaintiffs filed their Second Amended Complaint on June 24, 2014.  The Second Amended Complaint dropped 30 defendants and the Hatch Act Claim.  However, it failed to cure the fatal defects endemic to this politically motivated lawsuit.  As a result, County Executive Astorino and the co-defendants will file formal motions to dismiss the complaint on September 12, 2014.  We expect the motions to be granted.

The Democratic State Committee has cherry-picked words from this frivolous lawsuit to make it appear as if Mr. Astorino is guilty of or being investigated for some sort of criminal behavior.  

It begins to ominous music:

"The Rob Astorino Story.  Racketeering. Conspiracy. Fraud."  None of these allegations are remotely true.  Indeed, as noted by the Court records, they are all meritless.

Negative advertising is nothing new in this state. But allowing this ad to stay on the air would set a dangerous precedent.  If words from a frivolous civil lawsuit can be used to fabricate a smear television ad campaign, where does it stop?

Anyone is free to file a civil lawsuit against any elected official in this state for virtually any reason.  Is that really an acceptable basis for television advertising? If this is permitted it has the potential to cause chaos in our political system.  Frivolous lawsuits will be become a campaign weapon of choice, and voters will easily be misled into making choices based on innuendo and untruths.

The television ad is as disingenuous and misleading as the Federal Lawsuit.  We understand the Cuomo Administration's desire to distract the public's attention to his dismantling of the Moreland Commission to protect political allies, such as Mr. Giulio Cavallo.  However, the Governor's re-election campaign should not be permitted to do so through an outrageously false and misleading television advertisement.

I have been advised by legal counsel that this sensationalism paid for by New York State Democratic Committee against Rob Astorino plainly does not constitute a "candidate use."  Under Columbia Broadcasting Sys., Inc. v. Democratic Nat'l Comm., 412 U.S. 94 (1973), and Nat'l Conservative Political Action Comm., 89 FCC 2d 626 (1982), your station is not obligated to air any advertisements from third parties, such as the New York State Democratic Committee, as third parties have no guaranteed right of access to air their advertisements on your station.  Thus, broadcasting stations are not protected from legal liability for airing a false and misleading advertisement sponsored by the New York State Democratic Committee. Moreover, broadcast licensees have a legal responsibility to review and to eliminate any false, misleading, or deceptive materials contained in advertising. (See Licensee Responsibility With Respect to the Broadcast of False, Misleading or Deceptive Advertising, 74 F.C.C.2d 623 (1961).] Failure to prevent the airing of "false and misleading advertising" may be "probative of an underlying abdication of licensee responsibility" that can be cause for the loss of a station's license. [Cosmopolitan Broad. Corp. v. FCC, 581 F.2d 917, 927 (D.C. Cir. 1978).] We urge you to stand up for the truth and put a stop to these misleading advertisements on your station.

Accordingly, for the foregoing reasons, the ad should immediately be pulled from your stations.

Sincerely,




Michael Lawler
Campaign Manager
Astorino For Governor

CABLE SYSTEM PULLS MISLEADING CUOMO AD
Astorino Campaign Urges Other Stations to Follow Suit

New York--August 26...In response to a Cease and Desist letter sent yesterday by the Astorino campaign to television managers across the state, the Watertown cable system, Castle Cable, has pulled the grossly misleading ad from its stations. The Astorino campaign is urging other stations to follow suit.

The ad, being run in markets across New York by the Democratic State Committee on behalf of Governor Cuomo sets a dangerous precedent by allowing a frivolous civil lawsuit to be used to fabricate a smear television ad campaign that deliberately misleads voters.

The Astorino campaign thanked Castle Cable for its ethics in advertising.

"We are grateful to Castle Cable for its ethics in refusing to air this outrageously false and misleading ad," said Astorino spokeswoman Jessica Proud. "We urge other stations to do the right thing and pull the ad from their airwaves as well. Airing misleading political ads runs afoul of FCC requirements to operate a broadcast station in the public interest and potentially subjects stations to libel lawsuits."

She continued, "Governor Cuomo is running the nastiest campaign in probably the history of New York, deliberately misleading voters to try and cover up that he is under criminal investigation by U.S. prosecutors for corruption. We understand why he's trying to run a scorched earth campaign, but television stations have a legal and moral obligation to prohibit false and misleading advertising."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ANTONACCI CHALLENGES DINAPOLI TO DEBATE 
VISION FOR STATE COMPTROLLER'S OFFICE
Necessary Requirement of Matching Funds Pilot Program; Despite Opting Out, 
Incumbent Has Responsibility to Hardworking New York Taxpayers
ALBANY, NY -  New York State Comptroller candidate Bob Antonacci today challenged incumbent Tom DiNapoli to join him for a debate on the vision of the Office of State Comptroller - - an exchange of ideas is necessary to satisfy a requirement of the new law creating the state's matching funds pilot program.
 
Despite opting out and turning his back on the small donor matching system he repeatedly claimed to support so he could continue to raise money from the wealthy special interests which dominate Albany, Antonacci urged DiNapoli to agree to the debates anyway.
 
"Tom DiNapoli has a responsibility to have a frank and public discussion about his tenure in Albany and where he would take this office in the future.  I am ready, willing and able to show the people of New York how different an Antonacci administration would be.  I'm not interested in protecting the Albany insiders, just the honest, hardworking taxpayers of New York," Antonacci said. 
 
According to Antonacci, these debates will highlight the sharp contrasts that exist between himself and the incumbent.
 
"I am the only candidate in this race who will hold the Legislature and state agencies accountable for the way they spend our hard-earned taxpayer dollars.  Unlike Mr. DiNapoli, I'll audit the Moreland Commission and get to the bottom of what really happened.  When I am elected State Comptroller, there is going to be a sea change in Albany," Antonacci said.
 
DiNapoli is a former political boss and downstate Assemblyman who was handed his job by Manhattan Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and his allies in the State Legislature.
 
Antonacci is the two-time elected Comptroller of Onondaga County, which has the highest credit rating in New York State.  He is a certified public accountant (CPA).

NYGOP Sends Eric Schneiderman Box of Plastic Deputy Badges
Republican Party offers to help Attorney General with next publicity stunt
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: David Laska
dlaska@nygop.org
518.462.2601
ALBANY...The NYGOP announced today that it has sent Attorney General Eric Schneiderman a box of plastic badges that he can use to deputize new Attorneys General.
 
Eric Schneiderman is sending the message that the only role he played in the Moreland Commission scandal was to formally make commission members Deputy Attorneys General, and that he has no further responsibility for the mess.
 
NYGOP spokesman David Laska said: "If it's true that Eric Scneiderman's only role in the Moreland Commission scandal was to deputize new Attorneys General, then it's clear that New York's top law enforcement official values rhetoric over results, and saw the Moreland Commission as a publicity stunt from the start. And if that's the case, then we want to provide Eric Schneiderman with the tools necessary to deputize anyone he pleases. We're sure he can use these to get his name in a few more papers."
 
"And if what Eric Schneiderman is saying is not true, then he needs to come clean about his role in the Commission: New Yorkers deserve to know what he knew and what he did to ensure his deputies were able to do their job."
 
The following letter was sent to the Attorney General along with the badges:
