DRAFT MICHAEL GARCIA


The Republicans need to draft Michael Garcia for Attorney General or dare I say it Governor


He will be speaking on Tuesday and the delegates will get a chance to size him up.


I hope they will draft him for Attorney General or dare I say Governor, maybe he can unite everyone.

NY POST TO CY VANCE FOLLOW THE MONEY

It is nice to have the NY Post Editorial Board agree with me that you need to follow the money.

As each day goes by more and more will come out with regard to "HAGGERTYGATE" wether it will lead to "BLOOMBERGATE" is an open question.

But just like "Watergate" and "Pensiongate" it all starts out "small" and as one follows the money it leads to the "BIG"

The question remains who's scalp will hang on CY Vance's belt

Mike's funny-money mess

Last Updated: 5:10 AM, May 22, 2010

Sunlight may be about to fall on one of the more curious episodes of last year's mayoral campaign.

Manhattan DA Cy Vance has convened a grand jury to investigate a Bloomberg campaign consultant's disposition of $750,000 -- money he received after the mayor donated $1.2 million to the state Independence Party.

As The Post reported in January, Bloomberg wrote two checks totaling $600,000 to the Independence Party right before Election Day.

The party promptly paid $750,000 to a shadowy outfit called Special Election Operations, run by campaign consultant John Haggerty.

Ostensibly, the money was for workers to guard against poll-booth shenanigans.

But it's not clear if the firm's staff did so. In any event, the company didn't register with New York's secretary of state until nearly a month after the election.

Perhaps more to the point, Haggerty now can account for barely $150,000 of the cash. So, where did the rest go?

Was, as some suspect, Haggerty running a "street money" operation -- handing out cash to get voters to the polls? Or did he just pocket the remainder?

Haggerty associates now claim that he had a deal with the campaign to keep any leftover cash -- a charge former campaign spokesman and current Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson denies.

Is this just a simple case of a political operative ripping off the campaign and/or the Independence Party?

Or was he working at the behest of both organizations?

Billionaire Bloomberg was hardly shy about spending whatever it took last year -- on campaign personnel, advertising, mailings, etc.

Thus, the last-minute cash influx to the Independence Party and transfer to Haggerty rightly raises some eyebrows.

Rather than just make Haggerty the fall guy, Vance's grand jury needs to follow this money trail wherever it leads.

750G Mike aide either thief - or dupe

A Queens Republican operative who is being investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office to find out what happened to $750,000 from Mayor Bloomberg's campaign is nothing more than a common thief, a source in the mayor's camp charged yesterday.

But pals of John Haggerty Jr. claim he's been set up as a fall guy.

As The Post first reported in January, Haggerty set up a mysterious company, Special Election Operations LLC, to conduct what was supposed be a poll-watching operation on Election Day last year.

He has yet to explain what he did with the $750,000 delivered to him for that purpose through the state Independence Party.

(snip)


The friend added that Haggerty is prepared to spill everything he knows about the inner workings of Bloomberg's operation if that's what it takes to stay out of jail.

Sources said the mayor's campaign is not a target of the probe.

"COPY CAT" CUOMO RUNS FOR "LORD"

I was the very first person to greet "Defender of The Faith" Cuomo when he arrived at the event in front of the Boss Tweed Court House we shook hands I wished him well and took the "VERY FIRST PICTURE".


I very much enjoyed his speech and have some very nice pictures and video of the event.


My feelings are the same he should stick to his day job as "Defender of The Faith" and leaving he running for "Lord" of the "Former" Empire State to "Others", but if you do wish to run then I guess you should now be called "Copy Cat" Cuomo since you are now copying the "Republicans".

The Democrats have no choice but to support you at this stage of the game.


They are desperate to keep what ever power you will let them have and I guess they figure it is better YOU then Levy The Bold, The Good Ship Laziostein or haven forbid The Knight in Shinning Money Carl Paladino or ?


I bet Boss Tweed and Hank Morris are having a laugh or to one from the grave the other from his 4 million dollar home in the Hampton's In fact maybe the Republicans can have a convention meeting in front of his house, and another at the Grave of Boss Tweed.


Well thats my comments for now


I am writing this at MAMA a wonderful little place in Little Italy a few doors down from the Mulberry Hotel that open last week opposite Columbus Park.

GRAND JURY LOOKING INTO HAGGERTYGATE


Like all "Gates" it starts off with an investigation of "MONEY" and were it went.


Haggertygate is no different and as they follow the money will it lead to a Bloombergate or an Indy Party Gate. ?


=====================================================================

Grand Jury Probe of Mike's Indy Party Bucks Spells a Cuomo Conundrum

Village Voice (blog) - Tom Robbins -





The Post, the Wall Street Journal, and Capitol Tonight are all reporting -- without apparent fear of contradiction -- that a criminal grand jury has been convened to consider charges involving an Independence Party payment of $750,000 last fall to a Queens political operative.

The grand jury comes after a several-month-long look-see by Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance Jr. into the case which is intriguing on several political levels.

For one thing, the case has big star potential since the money in question came from our own Mayor Michael Bloomberg who wrote $1.2 million in checks to the party to help his reelection drive last year. The Journal's Michael Saul's sources state that Bloomberg and his campaign aides "aren't the targets of the investigation." If so, this means the mayor and his first-class campaign team are only looking at first-degree embarrassment, as opposed to felonies (although there is solid ground for their own culpability, as per the detailed walk-through of the appropriate election laws provided here by Wayne Barrett in March).

The current target is allegedly one John Haggerty, a Queens Republican operative who was supposed to have used the money for election day operations. The story was broken back in February by Liz Benjamin and the Post's Dave Seifman. Writing on the Capitol Tonight blog, Benjamin states that the Bloomberg campaign knows only of 200 to 300 poll watchers hired at $500 a head, leaving "the bulk of the $750,000 unaccounted for."

Okay, so this is bad news for Haggerty who is currently floating along the Erie Canal aboard a trawler with his latest client, GOP gubernatorial candidate and email jokester extraordinaire Carl Paladino.

If history is any guide this is just the tip of the Haggertygate iceberg and there is a lot more below the surface.
