What Elizabeth Crowley did behind closed doors

With all the problems in this neighborhood, why haven't we ever seen this "dedicated community leader" showing outrage BEFORE she was running for office? Where has she been since 2001? Wait...I think I know. It was only after Brian McLaughlin pled guilty that he let Elizabeth Crowley out of his office.

Check this out from the NY Post:

...one day in 2004 - as McLaughlin explored running for mayor - he skipped out on an interview with a New York Times reporter, after hiding out in his office with Elizabeth Crowley.

She's his close political pal and a failed City Council candidate. "Brian wouldn't come out of his office - I was banging on the door," said a former staffer at the New York Central Labor Council, which McLaughlin headed.


From the Queens Chronicle:

Elizabeth Crowley, a cousin of Congressman Joseph Crowley and a political ally of McLaughlin, has been reported to be one of three female friends with whom he had "a close personal relationship," according to the indictment.

One of three...How about this from the NY Post?

A second woman with whom he allegedly had a personal relationship received thousands of dollars in union checks and was given a no-show job with a contractor who used union workers, the feds said.

WHY DOESN'T ANYONE IN THE NEWS MEDIA ASK ELIZABETH CROWLEY ABOUT HER ADULTEROUS RELATIONSHIP WITH AN ADMITTED FELON AND THE FACT THAT HER NAME WAS MENTIONED IN A FEDERAL INDICTMENT?

I guess Brian was too busy banging her to notice someone banging on his
office door!

Adultery and corruption are standard fare for Queens dem/clubhouse crooks!

Good Question.

That is because the Queens media is controlled by out of touch Bayside Biddies and adverstising check collectors for the developers and politicians.

The point is here is boys, unless you guys shape up, blogs like Crappie are making you, well, yesterday's news!

Lets see how Shenkler and the Tribune handles this.

Or better yet, since we all know he will not, what he writes about the next week or so, which sends a message on what he thinks is more important (and a message to us as to where is he coming from).

I don't like Crowley and am offended by her candidacy, but you are making an accusation here with no evidence. Is there any evidence at all beside the fact that they were friends of an affair?
If you are going to push for an investigation of an affair based on nothing, why aren't you pushing for an investigation into Ognibene's prior involvement with and gift-taking from a corrupt buildings department official?

Anonymous said...

If Elizabeth Crowley was not one of the women listed in McLaughlin's federal indictment detailing his crimes and deception, why doesn't she ask the U.S. Attorney's Office to clear her name? She has offered the public no proof to exonerate her reputation and innocence. Many, many, many people saw them in action back in the day groping each other in bars, restaurants and other public venues. She is a liar with no ethics or morals. Her entire City Council tenure will be more of the same from her...lies, lack of morals and ethics, and more lies. Wake up, Queens. Do not let the Queens County organization's desperation fool you into believing she is worthy of representing you.

CRIME SEX AND THE CITY

Crowley, McLaughin and Parkside all worked together to rip off the city's dollars through Kickbacks from member items.

Parkside was formed in 2002 right after Brian and the Queens machine back and elected Gifford Miller as concil speaker.

Parkside ran Miller and city hall when Miller started hiding budget money in fake non profits accounts.

Who is running Crowley's campaign this year - Evan's Parkside.

What I am amazed at his the absolute hatred tied in with slander because Elizabeth Crowley is a Democrat. The fact is many of the bloggers on this site where huge supporters of Dennis Gallagher who turned a blind eye to his "issues" becuase he did their bidding. In fact he was even "Man of the Year" for the JPCA several years back.

Its amazing to see how this site as become a shill for Republican candidates, and the extent this site will go to commit character asasination on those who don't curry favor with the leadership, or should we say lack of in the JPCA.

It's no wonder that the JPCA, and its followers have become a pariah within NYC. Rather than burn bridges m the JPCA should build them...

Christina Wilkinson said...

I personally have endorsed Charles Ober and JPCA has not endorsed anyone. However, our general consensus is that if Elizabeth Crowley or Anthony Como get elected, it would be a disaster for District 30. That leaves Ognibene and Ober, and may the best man win.

Maybe Elizabeth can explain why she is for housing at the St. Saviour's site. I've been dying to ask her, but she manages to evade me, like when she and Evan Stavisky refused to sit in the green room with me before the NY1 debate. This is the candidate who says she is going to "bring people together". Can't do that if you're afraid of your own constituents.

Not being able to give straight answers to questions, or knowing the answer is wrong or immoral tends to make people shy away from being asked. So that is why they wimped out of the JPCA debate. It's hard to con people who are passionate about their community and not beholden to politician handouts.

Crowley cares more about the dogs at Atlas Park than she does about the people of Maspeth, Middle Village, Glendale, Ridgewood, Woodhaven and Richmond Hill.

I can't knock her for not attending a JPCA debate. The JPCA has become a joke. But I do fault her for committing to attend and then cancelling at the last minute for no good reason. That was rude and disrespectful to all the people who attended to hear what the candidates had to say.

Julie said...

The JPCA has become a joke? I beg to differ. The JPCA was the only one who stood up to Gallagher this entire time and it turns out they were right about him. That's why we are having this election in the first place. Let's not blow it by hiring another no-talent empty suit who will defer to the Parkside Group on most matters.

Why are you still commenting about the JPCA debate when the topic is Elizabeth Crowley's indiscrete relationship with Brian McLaughlin? Or is that JPCA's fault, too?

Julie, we are having this election because Gallagher pleaded guilty to a crime and rightfully had to give up his council seat. His victim reported the crime, the police arrested him, and the DA prosecuted him and arranged for the plea. What did the JPCA have to do with any of that?

Julie said...

I said they were right about Gallagher being a pig. His being a pig is the reason we are having this election. Having trouble understanding? The JPCA was the only one to stand up against his piggishness. Thank you.

You know what's sad is that the other pols knew Gallagher was a pig but defended him anyway because he was one of their little club. So maybe the rest of them need to be looked at more closely. Lots of skeletons in their offices, I'm sure. And this bimbo has them going in.

Elizabeth Crowley and the Crowley clan boast about their father and mother being in the council and that making them qualified to run, but thanks to crappy we now know the truth about how their parents got there - They were Manes cronies!!!! And Elizabeth is a Stavisky and Gallagher crony! God this borough is so damn corrupt!!!!

Queens Crapper said...

Elizabeth Crowley has been hiding for the past few years hoping the McLaughlin connection would not be brought out into the forefront. All the protests that were held she was absent from, all the issues on the front burner she stayed silent on. She never had anything to say at the community board public forum. She is a no-talent hack who is banking on her name. She has not accomplished a damn thing in her life. The fact that she was introduced as "Glendale resident Elizabeth Crowley" by NY1 is proof of that. They couldn't find anything to refer to her as. Please, people, go vote ABC - Anybody But Crowley!!

This is because cousin Joe Crowley wants another puppet to control. You see, it doesn't matter how dumb she is, she just has to do what she's told. Joe is hoping that the Crowley name and lots of money thrown at the unions and dirtbag lobbyests will get the bimbo elected. He could care less how humiliating it would be for the people of the district to be represented by such an unqualified airhead.

What he didn't think about is that it will be equally embarrassing for him and the party. BAD MOVE JOE.

To Christine Wilkenson:

How would it be a disaster if Crowley and Como won, but not of Ognibene did? Wasn't he linked to real estate developers? Wasn't he the guy who elevated Dennis Gallagher to run for City Council? I mean here is a guy with a track record that is less than sterling, yet thats ok with you?

The sole issue here seems to be St.Saviors, which with all due respect, in today's economy with budget shortfalls, the price of everything going up and an expected reduction in city services down the road to meet projected budget gaps, isn't the big issue that the JPCA makes it out to be.

Knowing how the JPCA operates, I don't blame either Crowley or Como for not showing up. The JPCA has a history of being biased towards certain candidates and silencing and insulting people in Midlde Village who don't agree with them.

Mr. Mojo Risin

So this all about her having an alleged affair? Is that how we decide who are candidates should be. There were rumors for years about Gallagher screwing around, and the JPCA had no problem with it. And the reason was because Gallagher was a Republican and did the JPCA's bidding.

Its interesting how the same people who are trashing Crowley about having an affair, seemed to make an exception when Rudy was Mayor.

Oh I forgot, Rudy was a Republican too...:)

Christina Wilkinson said...

Dear Mr. Mojo Risin (who is too chicken to post under his real name),

This is about much more than St. Saviour's. Tom Ognibene does not scare me in the way that Elizabeth Crowley does. Tom Ognibene is a very experienced and capable lawmaker. He's made mistakes and I don't always agree with his positions, but I would not be embarrassed to have him as my council member were Ober not to be elected, who is my first choice. Elizabeth Crowley and Anthony Como on the other hand, cannot answer simple questions, they lack the necessary skills to govern and have made careers out of sucking off the teats of the Queens machine. Como cannot speak in complete sentences and Crowley's portfolio of experience consists of accomplishments by her relatives. As much as you love to bash JPCA, I haven't heard you offer one positive about either of these two candidates. In fact, you were proven wrong by saying that JPCA has a problem with anyone who isn't a Republican. I am not a Republican, the president of the organization is not a Republican. And if we don't like Como as well as Crowley then I would say that it is machine politics we are fed up with, not one particular party or another. If this is the best that the political clubs have to offer then Queens is in deep crap.

Queens Crapper said...

Maybe Mojo can explain why Helen Marshall and Karen Koslowitz were photographed at St. Saviour's with the JPCA and sent the photo out to all the newspapers earlier this month. After all, St. Saviour's is a non-important issue and the JPCA supposedly are pariahs.

Tell me exactly what qualifications Crowley has other than being related to a Political family?

If you aren't embarrassed by the lack of intelligence that is glaringly obvious in her public speaches and statements, then I have to assume your intellect is on the same level as hers. Did you see the NY1 Debate? The same goes for Como's mumbling and bumbling. I'd be humiliated to have one of them spaking on the council floor, claiming to represent me.

And when did the other MV civic endorse Como? In fact, I haven't heard a peep out of them since their spiritual leader admittied to assaulting a granny.

Rudy was having an affair, but not with a corrupt union boss who indicted for stealing money from children. That's a big difference, but at least he was a Dem, right Mojo?

Get off the party bandwagon, and open your eyes to the shit that's being put in front of you.

I just found out that Congressman Crowley also was give his job by the machine. Manton resigned in mid term. The machine appointed Crowley the Democrat nomination and he limited opposition. Most reelection he does not even face a republican opponent because of a deal with the Republican party to cross endorse each others incumbents.

So both Elizebets Parents and cousin were given elective office by the corrupt queens machne.

Then ask this Crowley candidate (who wants to replace the confessed/convicted sexual predator Gallagher) exactly who Francis Crowley is.

She boasts of her family connections; let's hear what she says about Francis.

Do we need more perverts in this Council seat?

She cannot have it both ways. If she's great because of her family, then she's shit because of her family.

This election is not about Francis Crowley, or Joe Crowley. It is about Liz Crowley, who has no qualifications whatsoever and 3 other opponents. I have still not made my mind up between Ognibene, who has a lot of needed experience and Ober, who is a needed fresh face. The other two are a total joke.

You lose all credibility if you even try to defend Rudy. What Rudy did was worse than Liz. He had an affair in public and his wife found out he wanted a divorse through the press. Rudy married a cousin then tried to get it annulled and he had one of the most corrupt administrations in recent memory. Remember Kerik and Harding?

Rudy only did what most Mayors would have done during 9/11. If it weren't for 9/11, Rudy would just be a footnote in history. Ever wonder why so many 9/11 families hate him?

This isn't about Rudy, it's about Liz. Stick to talking about Liz and how unqualified to be councilperson she is.

Rudy was one of this city's greatest mayors. His marital and personal relationships had nothing to do with his job. Who are you to judge his personal relationships? I also don't really care if Crowley had an affair. The McLaughlin connection is disturbing just because she had such a close political relationship with a corrupt politician. She has no skills, and this relationship among others have led to her getting this opportunity that she doesn't deserve.

Rudy wasn't a great Mayor in fact he was GOD AWFUL. He took credit for bratton turning the NYPD around by taking the cops out of the cars and back onto the beat, and cops feel good about them selves. The minute Bratton makes the cover of Time magazine, as the man who is cleaning up NY, Guiliani flies into a rage and dumps him. Then he appoints a guy who wasn't even a cop, Safir to run the NYPD. From their he rewarded cops who kissed his ass, ans didn't talk about all the problems. After that he appoints his friggin chauffeur Kerik, to be Police Commissioner.

What did Guiliani do? The porn was being driven out under Dinkins. More cops? BIll Clinton gave the city the money to hire 13,000 cops.

Rudy didn't do a friggin thing except take responsbility for everyone else's good work, cheated on his wife, built the Emergency Headquarters in the wrong spot (dispute the fact he was told by the Feds, and his own police department to build at Police Plaza)and paid the cops and fire fighters garbage. He didn't do crap for the city...

He tried talking about what he did for NY when he ran for President, even ultra wing Republicans thought he was a lying chaeting wind bag.

He couldn't get elected rat catcher in NYC. But I'm sure he would win the majority of the votes in Middle Village. Just as long as he has that -R after his name.
