Can you guess which two lobbying firms with organized labor customers were visited by the FBI as part of the probe into Joe Bruno?

What did boggess do to tom dadey??????

he threatened him and got him fired because he wouldnt promise not to primary jeff brown in the 49th.

dadey has an affidavit that could crush boggess. he should release it.

Yup, what Boggess did to Dadey was incredibly wrong. Dadey would have done better than Jeff Brown's pitiful showing in '06.

OK, I know about Dadey (very sad story) but who the hell is Premo?

The only thing better than losing Bruno, Boggess and that idiot McArdle is getting to see some unions take a hit in the process.

Has Senator Aubertine sent McArdle a thank-you gift yet for helping him get elected?

Boggess and McArdle...quite the duo...largely responsible for the Republican Majority being at 32 seats instead of 34...Mr./Miss/Mrs. Amp, a better question is...which of these rocket scientists does Bruno dump next?

Finally, the corrupt vermin running our party are going to be taken to task for at least some of their crimes against our principles.

One of our Albany based readers brought this blog to our attention which we are told is driving Uncle Joe and his staff nuts as it breaks news out of his office and conference before it hits the mainstream press. We hope this reader will give us more specifics on some of the other information in her emails so we can rattle some bird cages.

THE ASSASSINATION OF EDWARD LURIE BY THE COWARD JOHN McARDLE

The scape-goating of the New York Republican Senate Campaign Committee’s Director Ed Lurie for the loss of the Special Election in the 48th district Special Senate Election is an unfair hit job orchestrated by Senator Joe Bruno’s Press Secretary, (who prefers to call himself Communications Director) John McArdle. Lurie is among the most capable mechanics in the GOP. The Republicans lost because, under the ego-maniacal strategy of McArdle, the Republicans have no Agenda and no argument for the voters.

McArdle, who must be the smartest guy in the room and who is opposed to any idea that isn’t his, believes that whining about Troopergate is all Bruno and the Republicans have to do to maintain State Senate Control. McArdle has resisted any effort to develop an issue Agenda beyond Troopergate. It was McArdle who advised Bruno to at first support Eliot Spitzer’s insane plan to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. It wasn’t until Assembly Minority Leader Tedisco came out swinging against the plan that McArdle advised Bruno to switch sides.

When the New York Sun reported that Spitzer had appointed a major fundraiser with a membership in a restricted club that excludes African American’s, to head the MTA, it was McArdle who insisted on quiet Senate confirmation for the hack, instead of using the issue to undermine the Governor’s credibility with Minority voters, even though Assemblymen Hakim Jeffries and Adam Clayton Powell IV both publically criticized the appointment.

McArdle’s insistence on harping on no other issue than Troopergate means the GOP hasn’t made hay over the release of violent offenders from the Prison system in record numbers or the proposed taxing of drug dealer’s illegal drug sales or the $1.7 Billion in taxes, fees, and assessments in the Governor’s budget.

Ed Lurie is a tactician who never claimed to drive strategy. McArdle’s plants to his regulars Fred Dicker and Liz Benjamin blaming Lurie left his finger prints on the sacrificial lamb’s throat.

If Bruno wants to maintain control of the Senate he should fire McArdle, get on offense on Taxes, Parole and Spitzer’s zany left-wing public policy ideas, and get a strategy.
