Two-Ton arrest leaves Serf at disadvantage

The arrest of Assemblyman Anthony Seminerio on federal corruption charges Wednesday could weaken the campaign of the Democrat's longtime friend and Albany ally, state Sen. Serphin Maltese, political observers said.

Anthony Seminerio's arrest could hurt GOP ally Serphin Maltese

Seminerio - who was nabbed peddling influence for cash in an undercover FBI probe - has long been known in political circles for rallying Democratic votes for Maltese, a GOP veteran locked in a fierce race against Democratic City Councilman Joseph Addabbo.

Seminerio even boasted of his support for Maltese in an interview with the Daily News last month, during which he claimed to head an ad hoc group known as Democrats for Maltese.

Seminerio's politicking prowess has been valuable to Maltese because Seminerio's 38th Assembly District includes parts of Richmond Hill, Glendale and Ozone Park - neighborhoods also in Maltese's 15th Senate District.


Serf definitely has a 9-letter problem beginning with S, but it might not necessarily be Seminerio. More on this soon.

The surf's up and it's time for the old Maltese terrier to go!

This pol/incumbent's left with the brains of a seedless cucumber.

Senility is a nine letter word. Serf fits the profile.

Term limit him, vote for his opposition. Dump all those bastards in Albany.

The people who know Serf and Tony best have been buzzing.

Senility is only 8 letters but Serfie does fit the senility profile and we all know he thinks profiling is hunky dory.

How about an organization of Democrats & Republicans for ousting dinosaur politicians who do absolutely nothing but self promotion?

In other words ABS, anybody but Serf.

just b/c Yabba-dabo is younger than Serf doesn't mean he's better. I'd rather have a balance of power than an all dem legislature. but then again, i like democracy.

Yes it would be terrible to have someone from Queens as majority speaker. God knows how we have benefitted under the current arrangement.

Yeah, just think: a governor from NYC, an Assembly speaker from NYC, and a Senate majority leader from NYC. Maybe NYC and all the Dems who live here might actually benefit for once.

After all those years Serf was praising Seminerio and visa versa now the chickens will come home to roost.
Look at the people around Serf:
Seminerio, Gallagher, Ognibene, McLaughlin, DeFronzo, Bruno... more to come.

Oh, didn't you see, Serf said he was "shocked" about two-ton. So much for his ability to judge his friend who he's been playing with and supporting for years. Like two-ton has run with Repub and Con party endorsement for all these years without them knowing the kind of guy they were supporting. Neither Serf nor Tony has been seen in my neighborhood for years. They've been off in their back rooms wheeling and dealing.

I don't understand why degrading names towards ethnic groups must be used. this whole website tries to bring forth reform to queens but it will never work when followers just add to the problems. maybe next time when you want to make a point, you can sound smart! otherwise, no one cares what you have to say!
