NOW WHO'S IN THE SACK!
We all know that politics makes for strange bed fellows, and politicians in the sack has been the focus of attention lately....but we have to seriously take notice of what is developing in the political arena, so that we don't support another crony of the fallen Arcuri/Roefaro regime.
When Palmieri was fired by Roefaro, I openly supported the notion that Palmieri may be a good candidate for Utica...for it was thought that Palmieri may have defected from the status quo. I question that theory now, and think that Palmieri really needs to show the community that he has nothing...absolutely nothing to do with the machine.
The first step he should make is to publicly announce that he is an independent Democrat, who is not beholding to the machine and refuse any and all money from their fundraising efforts. I don't care if he doesn't have two nickels to rub together, he shouldn't take a penny from them, for if and when he does, he is no longer an independent candidate but rather a bought-and-paid-for crony of the same old regime.
My first question to Rob Palmieri is simply...will you be attending the fundraiser sponsored by Arcuri, Roefaro, and Gigliotti? My second question; will you be benefiting and/or receiving any money generated from that fundraiser?
The answer to those simple questions will give us an idea of where you stand with the boys of the now defunct dees, dos and Dems club. Remember, Palmieri has been a part of the machine for over twenty years.....show us that you've broken away from that party loyalty thing.....then and only then will we take your intentions as being sincere.
