Everyone invited except the Bangladeshi guy

City Council contender Dilip Nath lost a shot to speak to a central Queens civic group when its leader took offense at an e-mail that a Nath aide sent to hundreds of activists and reporters.

Briarwood Civic Association President Seymour Schwartz said he originally left Nath off the list for next Wednesday's candidates' night because he's a long shot to win term-limited Jim Gennaro's Fresh Meadows seat.

Nath has declared for the race, but Schwartz said Nath has "no record" of community involvement.


E-mail clouds Briarwood candidates' night

Schwartz insisted he had been reconsidering - until Nath's field organizer, Mike Sidell, fired off an Aug. 28 mass e-mail questioning Nath's exclusion.

Now, Schwartz said Nath is not welcome at the forum unless he publicly denounces Sidell.

"There is no role for that candidate, who obviously sanctions these actions," Schwartz said. "His choice of Mike Sidell is an extreme reflection of poor judgment."

But not only did Nath back Sidell, he accused Schwartz of initially excluding him based on race and now using the e-mail dustup to cover up those intentions.

Nath is Bangladeshi. The three candidates invited to the forum are white, including one who is undeclared.

FROM MIKE SIDELL
AFTER SEY SAID NO AND WAS CALLING THE UNDECLARED CANDITATE THAT HE WONT BE BLACKMAILED BY ME 9DONT KNOW WHAT THIS 82 YEAR OLD MAN MEANT BY THIS), I SENT OUT THE AUG 28TH E MAIL WITHOUT MENTIONING HIS NAME OR CIVIC GROUP. SO THIS IS A COVER UP FOR HIS DECISION WHICH I AM SURE HE DID NOT TAKE A BOARD VOTE.
WE ALWAYS GOT ALONG AS MEMBERS OF CB 8 Q UNTIL THIS.

Was this the guy that ran last election, who failed to proof read his literature/mailings. Making a very poor first impression?

Anyone from the clubhouse?

Sure, only Crappy is outraged about this. And the machine calls Crappy the home of racists.

Well we know the truth now, don't we?

Wait a sec...

All presidential candidates don't get to go to debates...

and Mr. Nath was told that he was going to have an opportunity to speak. Then he started yelling at Mr. Schwartz. Rude people should not be tolerated. Mr. Nath wasted everyone's time with his grandstanding.

Dilip Nath is a huge bullshit artist. He lies about every thing. He claims to have all of these degrees, I bet he has no more than an associates degree. He says he has a MBA that he earned from California Coast University CCU. This school is a notorious diploma mill. Don't beleive anything this guy says about anything.
