The joke's on the GOP, part 3

From City Hall:

Back when Mayor Michael Bloomberg was meeting with Republican county leaders about running on the GOP ballot line in November, his administration offered Anthony Como, the former Council member and favorite of the Queens County Republican Party, a job in his administration as a commissioner with the New York City Housing Authority.

Yet five months later, Como has yet to assume the job or collect a paycheck. And some members of the Queens GOP, the county organization which had been the most skeptical of the mayor’s entreaties, are now seething that Bloomberg is once again not living up to promises made to them.

“I don’t think it was ever a sincere offer,” said one Queens Republican. “They’ll keep him dangling until the campaign season is over, so he doesn’t become an enemy. But that job is never materializing.”

Two sources in the Queens GOP who have spoken with Como say a lengthy vetting process has held up his appointment. They say they doubt whether he will ever actually be appointed to the coveted $172,311 a year post.

The Commissar asked for someone from Great Neck.

The stupid GOP thought the Commissar wanted a NO NECK.

Even there, the Commissar and the GOP screwed up. They offered a NO NECK no brain moron who collects Stop Work Orders and refuses to pay for violations.

Now, to the Commissar, a lawbreaker is an ideal candidate for an appointment.

Hold the threat of enforcement and the lawbreaker will do whatever illegal act is demanded.

The real reason for the hold-up is the Boro Comissioner has put a stop work order on Como's McMansion. The reason being, "FILED A CERTIFICATE, FORM, APPLICATION, AFFIDAVIT ETC. CONTAINING A MATERIAL FALSE STATEMENT"

Maspeth & Middle Village elected this large doofus. Now they pick on him because he is fat. If they would have voted based on the issues and not voted based on the fact that he is the same heritage as them, maybe they would'nt have to reduce themselves to the level of school age children now.

Oh and here I thought the council district was Richmond Hill, Woodhaven, Maspeth, Middle Village, Glendale and Ridgewood. Thanks for clarifying that only Maspeth and Middle Village voted in the special election, which was soon after Memorial Day and for which Serf Maltese brought an army of his workers from Albany down to work for Como for free.

Maspeth and Middle Village elected Elizabeth Crowley last November. They also elected Barack Obama but will still be called Archie Bunkers regardless.
