Pinky collecting the green

From the NY Observer's blog, The Politicker:

Gallagher Fund-Raising, Aiming Local

Councilman Dennis Gallagher is having a fund-raiser next week at Russo’s on the Bay featuring billionaire John Catsimatidis on the finance committee.

So, what is Gallagher running for? He’s term-limited and, he told me, he’s not interested in running for Congress.

“Washington isn’t the type of place where I would want to be an elected official," he told me. "In the city and on the state level you could accomplish a great deal more impact on people’s quality of life. For me, all politics is local.”


You display excellent command of the English language, Dennis. We assume by "accomplish a great deal more impact on people's quality of life," you mean screwing your constituents by lining your pockets with developer donations in return for promoting overdevelopment and declaring war against community volunteers.

Your speculation is welcome.

Thank you, Azi. QC speculates that Parkside is helping Pinky raise money but he will not run, instead opting to transfer his slush fund monies to whichever crony he picks as his replacement. The rest will be distributed as legal bribes to other politicians when he becomes a lobbyist.

Ah....true to his heritage....the collecting of the green.....maybe in time for the next St. Paddy's day parade !

Of course the bulk of it winds up in a slush fund to be distributed where needed (across political party lines if necessary). The "Parkside Group" can surely arrange some help there.

A sizable portion of the collected cash goes into Pinky's Cayman Island account. It's too cold in Zurich.

Another part is for when he's on the lamb from the authorities (maybe they'll catch him soon)......payoffs for border guards, secret transportation costs, gifts to foreign bureaucrats for the establishment of his new identity? Does that sound right?

Maybe he'll run a porno business out of some God forsaken corner of the globe where there's no extradition treaty that exists with the USA!


All that "fund raising" for his mysterious office will will be worth it just to see him gone from our shores!

Wishing a hearty goodbye to the "crem de la Queens crap"!

Isn't Pinky married? Where's his wedding ring?

Hand down my pants said...

Pinky - a lobbyist? HA!!!!

I can see him showing up at a senator's office or the mayor's office and they'd say "Dennis who???"

But his friends at the Parkside will make him a fluff position where he get paid but doesn't have to do anything. Just like his current arrangement.

Quiz of the Day said...

Dennis P. Gallagher is on the phone working to:
• Once again sell pornography at Christ the King HS
• Book a whore for his weekly lapdance session in his back office
• Solicit $ from crooked building consultants
• RE-re-re-refinancing his house to buy the silence of his many Long Island & Westchester sweeties
• Plan another trip to Disneyworld
• Lie to anyone who will listen just to stay sharp
• Cheat on his wife
• Cheat on his fat girlfriend
• Find another chic at the Woodhaven House
• Explain to his wife why he left Barosa's with Jake and two young girls.
• Ask an ex-employee to show him her breasts.
• All of the above.

"“Washington isn’t the type of place where I would want to be an elected official," he told me. "In the city and on the state level you could accomplish a great deal more impact on people’s quality of life. For me, all politics is local.”"

How Tip O'Neal-ish. Translation: All developer corruption is local.

What's local for this elf are the lapdancers, harassed ex-employees, bartenders who let him stay to puke, developers whose taste is familiar.

He would never survive two hours in Washington where the players are far to clever to get attached to this midget - and, they're much to tall, anyway.

It seems right to also say that Albany would eat him for lunch, but they won't eat someone who's already busy chowing down on the secretaries.

PINKY COLLECTING GREEN THEN TURNING RED WHEN THE FEDS CATCH UP TO HIM.

Terry Cashman said...

Talkin’ Sleazeball
(to the tune of Talkin’ Baseball)

Eric The Whiz Kid had done it,
Bobby & Tony had won it,
And Gallagher read the comics from jail.
A new campaign was being born,
Mugsy the dealer we would scorn,
So down at St. Saviour's,
our national heritage went on trial.

We're talkin' sleazeball!
Gallagher & LaSala.
Talkin' Sleazeball!
Sanchez and Sal Candela.
The Stripper, the Mechanic, and the cunt,
We know she's only using the runt
Especially Kenny, Mark and Joey the hut.

While Tony was still winning,
Eric was beginning,
One crooked pol going out, an honest one coming in.
Kerri’s still giving head-a,
The Gabe should dump the Ked-a,
And Gallagher says he’s not interested in Washington.

We're talkin' sleazeball!
Lattanizo & McLaughlin
Talkin' sleazeball!
Rick & the child molester
The Stripper, Locasio, and the swingers
They knew 'em all from Long Island to Maspeth as sinners
Especially Kerri, Dennis, & the Jake the fake.

Now LaCrapa’s a down & out bachelor,
His ex is much smarter
Now he's living in a cellar in bankrupt squalor,
To see his friend Den at Rikers is a chore
Of course he’s lookin’ for another whore.

Those were the days! hey hey hey hey

Well, now it's 2010
And Tony beat Ken & Len,
And Wilkie can write for anyone.
Pat’s still a lying Vet,
And Krudzewick lost his dirty bet,
And the great drug dealer Mugsy is again pushing…this time up daisy’s

I'm talkin' sleazeball!
Like Dennis Dingleberry.
Talkin' sleazeball!
Linda & Kerri,
Len, Eileen and Kenny are so blue,
If Rikers is calling, it's no fluke.
They'll be with Gallagher, McLaughlin, and the Fuchs.
Hey Hey Hey Hey

Nice...."Terry"..... burn a disc and distribute that song!

Joe C said...

Is it true that Pinky hangs out in O'Neill's at 11:00am and bets on the ponies at Pimlico?

Pat T. said...

Yes, it is true. I saw him there myself this morning. Wearing a Vietnam Veterans jacket. What a disgrace.

Terry Cashman said...

I already burned about a 100 CD's. The single should sell for about $10 with proceeds going to the Kerri rehab fund.

Stan said...

I saw the flyer given out at Juniper Park this morning about Gallagher.

This guy is a complete pig. How can we get rid of this immoral and corrupt politician? He is sleazy and dirty and should not be allowed near children.

Gallagher's Councilporn said...

Q: Do you see a pattern in a certain Middle Village councilman's hiring practices?

A: Yes. There seems to be central theme. Hooker barmaid, stripper, & swinger...these are the just of few of the people Councilman Dennis Gallagher has around him on a daily basis.

Don't forget the porn star family member.

Oh I almost forgot, Gallagher was caught selling porn at Christ the King HS.

BTW, you left out the regular late night rendevous with his squeeze.

Can a councilman be more immoral?

Anonymous said...

who put out the flyers in juniper over the weekend? unless there is a name on them you can't take them seriously. if gallagher is so bad then why is he still in office?

Ron L. said...

Tonight at Russo's I hope Gallagher's partygoers take a minute to look out the window. They might see something very interesting. Very interesting.

Anonymous said...

He's still in office because the wheels of justice grind very slowly.

Anonymous said...

The picture of Gallagher on the flyer was priceless!

Truman Harris said...

Wait there is another qualification to being around Dennis Gallagher:

• His right hand woman, the stripper, is also a known drug abuser.

• Gallagher appointed Mugsy to his finance committee. Mugsy just happens to be one of the biggest, if not THE biggest Maspeth dope dealers of the 1980's and 90's.

• Gallagher also appointed the dope dealing Mugsy to the community board.

• Gallagher's gofer boy, Joe Cimino, an ex-narcotics chief for the Brooklyn DA's office, shockingly appointed Mugsy to his civic's nominating committee.

There are more but I think I made my point.

Oh one more connection, his attorney, Jake, is a dope.

THE FLYER WAS A LOW BLOW.

Who gives a crap? I thought this blog was to focus on overdevelopment. You guys really are crap!

GLENDALE said...

This is about overdevelopment...The overdeveloped pockets of an out-of-control councilman and his immoral and corrupt staff that is.

Gallagher represents the wishes of lobbyists and his campaign donors while he does nothing for his constituents. What happened to our downzoning?

Did you see all the builders, developers and real estate investors at his fundraiser tonight?

Incidentally, didn't he say he WASN'T running for office again? Then why is he holding a fundraiser tonight?

GOOD JOB QC, THAT REALLY SUMS UP THE PHILOSOPHY AND PERFORMANCE OF COUNCILMAN DENNIS P. GALLAGHER.

At least Gallagher and the well connected will be well protected at their little feast!


All may dine and deal (ahem) in safety without any annoying interruptions!


Hey Pinky....don't forget to bring along your little white silk bridal bag to put all your $$$$$$$ gifts into !!!!!

GARY said...

LISTEN I HAVE NO USE FOR POLITICIANS ESPECIALLY REPUBLICANS, WORST OF ALL QUEENS REPUBLICANS, BUT PUTTING OUT ANONYMOUS FLYERS IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA. THE GALLAGHER IMAGE WAS GREAT BUT I WOULD SUGGEST THAT NEXT TIME A PERSON OR ORGANIZATION SHOULD PUT THEIR NAME ON IT.

Gina said...

Gary,

The flyer was not anonymous. And it was extremely eye-opening. I can't believe what goes on in that office. Thank God for whistleblowers.

GARY said...

GINA: REALLY, THERE WAS A NAME ON IT? I'M LOOKING AT BOTH SIDES AND I CAN'T FIND ONE. THE ONLY NAME ON THE FLYER IS MR. GALLAGHER'S WHO IS BEING BASHED. THE FLYER ALTHOUGH CREATIVE IS COWARDLY.

Gina said...

Gary,

There must be two versions of the flyer. What does yours say?

Anonymous said...

I heard that Gallagher's fundraiser was a miserable event. Just under 200 showed with mostly real estate people and lawyers there. This guy is a sinking ship.

Anonymous said...

I was at the Gallagher party on Monday night. It WAS a miserable event, no doubt about it. Too many boring speeches, dinner wasn't served until 10pm. By then most of the people left. I LEARNED MY EXPENSIVE LESSON. Never again will I attend this BS fest.

Anonymous said...

I saw a lot of empty tables at the Gallagher fund raiser. I also happen to know Russo's was not happy with the Gallagher staff. Something was going on.

NILES said...

WHY IS GALLAGHER RAISING THIS MONEY? WHAT IS HE RUNNING FOR?

Cooper 66 said...

Who cares if Russo's was not happy with the Gallagher staff. The neighborhoods that he represents are not happy with his staff. That's what counts. The Gallagher staff is incompetent. They have never addressed any of my problems over the years. I've given up calling them. Did you ever hear of anyone saying that his staff was on the ball? Of course not. They're a bunch of idiots.

the flier was great said...

Hey Crapper, I sent you the Gallahger flier. Why won't you post it?

I also left before my dinner was served at the Gallagher affair. Who can eat a big meal after 10pm on a Monday night? Little did I know that the "entertainment" would be a lot of really awful political speeches. It was one disingenuous speech after another. I only went to this thing because my company bought a table. I'm not even a Republican. I agree with the previous post. I will not make the same mistake twice.

REAL WORLD said...

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A POLITICAL EVENT...ENTERTAINMENT? LEARN HOW THE REAL WORLD WORKS. YOU MUST PAY FOR PATRONAGE. IDIOTA!!!!

glendale said...

There were more than 200 people at Gallagher's event. I would estimate between 250 - 275.

did you see the table of pornographers?
did you see the drug dealing table?
did you see hooker table?
did you see the wiseguy table?

QCGOP said...

someone should list the names of the queens county republican party members who were NOT there.

the list would fill this blog.

Dennis, I had a great time at your party. I did a lot of networking and hope to do a lot of business with your wonderful friends. Well worth the cash I had to give you. Sorry I had to pay all in $1's.

What are you running for again, anyway?
