Tables turned on Pinky at GOP dinner

From a GOP insider:

"At the Queens County Republican dinner last night, Councilman Dennis Gallagher's face went from pink to beet red when he observed fellow Republican Tony Nunziato, cousin of liberal Dem Councilman Eric Gioia (no one knows how that happened), walking into the Reception House on Northern Boulevard with a stack of Juniper Berry magazines. The magazine, published by the Juniper Park Civic Association, contains a scathing editorial about Gallagher's blatant abuse of power and his ongoing war against the civic.

Gallagher immediately ran crying to Republican Party Chair, Phil Ragusa, who with Anthony Como and another party man, marched over to JPCA president Bob Holden and Nunziato and instructed them not to give out the magazine. Nunziato angrily said that he was giving the stack of magazines to the president of a local organization who had requested them. Ragusa backed off. The person who Nunziato handed the magazines off to in turn started handing them out to others. The joke was on Pinky.

This is typical of Gallagher to try and stifle free speech and it fits into his strong-arm Tammany Hall style politics. Gallagher is now removing JPCA board members from the community board. Edward Kampermann received his pink slip (or should I say "Pinky" slip) removing him from CB5 in the mail yesterday and the axe is sure to fall on more victims in the next few days.

Before the last election, voters in the 15th Senate District had one choice for 12 years (6 elections)... Serf Maltese. In a district where Democrats outnumber Republicans by more than 3-1, it was unbelievable that the Democrats could not come up with one candidate in all those years. Last November, a Democrat candidate emerged to accept the challenge to Maltese. Albert Baldeo, a Guyanese-American, without any help from the Queens Democratic Party, came within 700 votes of upsetting the longtime Senator. The donkey party now had egg on their face. The same can be said of the Republicans. Markey has had only one challenger in her 10 years in office. And many other candidates including Gallagher ran unopposed for several years.
The jig is up in Queens County. The voters are sick and tired of backroom candidates and dirty deals. The next few years promise to be interesting."

It Was Phil's Fault... said...

I was sitting at a table in the middle of the hall last night and witnessed part of the argument. Ragusa and Gallagher's people went over to the table in the corner where Holden and Nunziato were sitting and an argument broke out. I overheard Gallagher and another man complaining to Ragusa right in front of me. Most in the room and at my table know very well about Gallagher's deceitful nature and underhanded tactics.

Phil Ragusa should not have gotten involved in the first place and he made a huge mistake by making a scene. Not smart Phil, the party should hope that you will handle other problems more intelligently. This was NOT your finest moment.

who the crap cares about the elephant party in-fighting? what a bunch of idiots these republic party schmucks are. keep it up boys we won't have to vote you out, you'll save us the trouble by self-destructing. heehaa

Jim T. said...

I agree, Phil should not have gotten involved. Gallagher was way out of line and the party should step in and stop his attacks on this civic group. Step up now Phil before there is nothing left to save.

Speaking of that dinner, what the hell is this?

To Jim T. For your information it's already too late, there is nothing left to save in the Queens County Republican Party.

How can Gallagher be this stupid? He must know that this is the most popular blog in Queens and that he is a target. Really not a smart fellow, that Pinky...

The magazines should not have been given out at our event last night. But I agree the situation WAS NOT handled correctly. Phil is new at this and needs time to settle in. As for Dennis Gallagher, he's history, the party has to bring in young people with energy and charisma and get rid of the old dirty backroom politics of Serph Maltese, Ognibene and Gallagher. I feel the page was turned last night bringing in the new and flushing out the old stale guard. That was the news of the night, not the magazine being handed out. I must say though that the publication, the Juniper Berry, is magnificent.

Totally Independent said...

State GOP chair Joe Mondello surrendered his 'independence' on the second day of his new job, after caving in to corrupt Bruno.

Why is this Phil Ragusa's first recognition of Pinky the crybaby? Why hasn't he put Pinky in his place well before this?

Then, Hillary'$ boy, a democrat, wanting GOP help to run for mayor. Is the GOP so devoid that there is nobody in NYC who is competent to be mayor? Have we learned nothing from fake Republican-from-Boston Bloomberg?

Next time, Ragusa should make Pinky hand out the Juniper Berry. No, he'll probably try to sell it.

Pinky supporters obviously never won a spelling bee.

Dirty Dennis said...

The Dennis Gallagher supporter and lap dancer should go back to the 3rd grade and take a history lesson, learn sentence structure & punctuation and probably review basic phonics to help with spelling and the proper use of words.

Isn't it wonderful that all of Gallagher's supporters seem to have an IQ of a pineapple? I guess that's why they are Gallagher supporters.

hooper said...

Ladies and gentlemen, here is the intellect and mindset of an apparent Gallagher supporter:

"THIS SITE ISJUST LIKE THE PARTY OF GERMANY DURING WW2 SPEWING NOTHING BUT HATE AND PROPAGANDA "

This is a website where we hold public servants and city agencies accountable for their actions. You compare this to a regime that massacred millions of innocent people.

You have discredited and disgraced yourself. Thanks for saving me the trouble.

Nothing New said...

I was at the Queens GOP Party last night. This is much to do about nothing. Gallagher could never be trusted and everyone knows that. There's nothing new here. He has proven this over and over again. That's reality, accept it.
Those two guys in the corner making all the fuss should understand that Gallagher wasn't going to allow that crap. He has Phil over a barrel.
Phil Ragusa is trying. Give him a chance. He has a lot of cleaning up to do. Dennis Gallagher will disappear in due time and the party will right itself with the new leadership.
Move on and talk about issues instead of this BS.

Loyal JCPA'er said...

Pinky Gallagher objected to the Juniper Berry being read by GOPers? What an insolent piece of gallagher!

This is the same Pinky who invaded a JPCA meeting - uninvited and drunk - to hand out literature during the meeting. Literature that attacked the JPCA.

This drunken lout invaded several meetings to do the same thing. Then stood out in the parking lot with his "posse" to confront members as they were entering or leaving.

He was reenacting his loutish high school prom nights where no nice girl would date him, so he would stand outside the building to harass other couples. Remember? Lout! You've never changed.

This slug tried to take over a JPCA meeting by demanding the microphone and then stalking off in a pink-panty-wearing girly boy pout when he was refused publicly!

Is this that same piece of gallagher that gets stepped on after the dogs pass by?

The person who wrote on this page with ALL CAPS has NO BRAINS.

Unfortunately he is commenting on several issues on QC with the writing skills of a first grader. The only thing worse than his writing is his reasoning.

Oh right, he's a Dennis P. Gallagher supporter, that explains it.

The Stalin Gallagher image is priceless. Keep up the great work Queens Crap, you are the voice of reason for all of Queens County.

Somebody should carve a tombstone for the Queens Republican Party...gratis!

It's been dead and buried for years awaiting a proper monument!


Run some decent candidates, instead of pompous fools, and I'd love to vote for you!

I hate the Democratic disctatorship of Queens machine politics!

The only Republican I respect and always vote for is Senator Frank Padavan. Bravo to him. He knows how to do his job superbly and has my lifetime admiration.

As for Phil Ragusa, I met him over 20 years ago at a Stavisky sponsored Whitestone barbecue. What a meathead. I though he was next for the grill after the hot dogs!

Queens GOP buzz said...

Phil Ragusa, the Queens County Republican Party chair? Please... Phil's a nice man but hardly a leader. Even Joe Mondello witnessed that lack of charisma last Thursday and was certainly NOT impressed. However Joe has his own problems too. As for Gallagher, everyone is sick and tired of the Maltese-led sleaze that never had the GOP interest at heart. Maltese dragged the party down to the gutter with the likes of Gallagher who is only out for himself. Nobody with half a brain ever trusted him. How he got elected is anyone's guess.

We need new blood in the party. There are some young future stars and others that never got a chance. They should not get discouraged by the double-talking dinosaurs. They'll be extinct soon.

The Queens GOP is done. Stick a fork in them.

QRepublican said...

I would love to buy a poster of Gallagher as Stalin. You should really market some of your wonderful images.

Daug said...

If you think the Queens GOP is done just wait until '08. Go Rudy!!!

J said...

Oh dear, Gallagher got offended.
As a former Middle Village resident but I still own a house there.
Gallagher is as good as Ognibene which is to say no good at all.
Why the Democrats have never put up a challenge to Dumb and Dumber is beyond me. Before I moved I was considering running against Ognibene. His really dumb city-wide curfew plan showed just how useless he was.
Sadly Gallagher is around until 2009 but happily his carrer in elected politics for the area will be over. The best he can get now is a no-show hack job for the party.

College Pt. said...

Phil Ragusa is another Serf only less talented. He may do more than Maltese only because Serf did nothing but it still doesn't hide the fact that the guy has nothing going for him. There are other people that are certainly more qualified to lead the party.

RAGUSA WILL DO A GREAT JOB. STOP COMPLAINING AND GIVE HIM A CHANCE.

Pinky is well-done. He reminds me of the sheriff character in "His Girl Friday".

Gioia is a fair-weather hack, but his greater long-term ambitions keeps him from embarrassing himself as much as the old guard. He does piss-poor make-work for the people of Sunnyside and Woodside, but is able to dress it up well with soundbites and his appearance.

Trust is earned, not bought. The mistake I'm seeing many make is in thinking it's just the Queens Republicans whose crap smells.

Too much Gall said...

Dennis Gallagher NEVER had the interests of the Queens County Republican Party. He switched to the GOP out of convenience and now after he and his cronies have sucked everything out of it he has taken to forming a CLOSE relationship with the Queens Democrats.

The depiction of Gallagher as Josef Stalin is most appropriate. Thanks for exposing this fraudulent figure named Gallagher. UE should do the same.

Phil should steer clear from this traitor.

USSR Gallagher said...

The term Pinky is very appropriate for Gallagher. It represents more than his 24/7 flustered pinkish hue.

It has to do equally with his Soviet-style view of not tolerating any form dissent. Thankfully, Gallagher and his comrades are on their way to the similar fate of the evil empire.

Did you Know? said...

• Dennis P. Gallagher keeps paying off a staff member he’s been abusing, she should leave immediately since she is basically a good person and you hate to see her caught up in this.

• So many people have seen his illegal and immoral activities and many will give him up in a heartbeat.

• He keeps telling them that nothing will happen except it is already too late. Look at him, he’s a walking barometer of deceit. The more pink he gets the more lying he's doing.

• His office has been used for everything, so much so, even Bubba would be jealous. Shockingly, the guy shits where he eats.

• His old boss still calls him Duplicitous Dennis. “When you have been lying your entire life it becomes like breathing.” "He always underestimates the intelligence of his friends and enemies." “He loses track of his lies and when he gets caught he adamantly questions your memory and denies everything.”

• He is a good con artist to the gullible. His "friends" eventually become his victims. The extremely dumb ones catch on very late. This is evident by the people who are still with him.

• Yes there is a God. Gallagher has already been punished for his reckless life. His maladies are so extensive that it would take too much space on this blog to list.

• Sadly, there's more but the pure evil of this man is giving me the chills.

Stan said...

Why are people surprised that Dennis Gallagher is trying to stop free speech? This is the same man that was caught selling pornography from Christ the King HS in Middle Village. When the principal Elizabeth Lawlor found out and reported this he had her fired.

With all of the other things reported on this blog, that fact that people saw Gallagher trying to stop a magazine from being given out at the Queens GOP dinner is little league stuff compared to what this monster has done and continues to do.

His constituents should organize a demonstration to demand that he resign.

Anonymous said...

You mean his former boss, Tom Ognibene, said that about Gallagher? I thought they were friends?

Truman Harris said...

This is one of hundreds of Dennis Gallagher's dirty tricks. In 2001 he was exposed on hours of wiretaps taking bribes and corrupting the Department of Buildings. He and his family had an expense paid trip to Disneyworld as one of the payoffs. He also took several thousands of dollars of bribe money.

And don't forget the money he took from that crooked assemblyman, Brian McLaughlin.

Now we understand that he has sexually harassed female employees, used his office and staff to raise money for his campaign coffers, and has waged an disgraceful war against neighborhood civic leaders.

Can an elected official be more dishonest than Gallagher?

IMPEACH DIRTY DENNIS GALLAGHER!

King of Refinancing said...

Dennis Gallagher and his wife Donna are the King & Queen of Refinancing. Please follow the money with Gallagher's campaign (a lot of expenses), his constant refinancing, his wife's construction related business and the dirty money he took from the indicted Assemblyman and Union Leader, Brian McLaughlin.

Hint: Ask Tom Ognibene about the refinancing.

MK said...

To keep her quiet and loyal, Councilman Dennis Gallagher has been paying off Kerri Steinmuller with small bonuses. However when called in for questioning she'll sing like a canary. Why should she mess up her life to protect that crook Gallagher?
