Former City Councilman and “pagan prince” Dan Halloran now says he’s crazy — but it’s only to stall his trial next week on charges that he aided in Rep. Malcolm Smith’s plan to rig the mayoral race, prosecutors say.
Halloran (R-Queens) notified White Plains federal Judge Kenneth Karas this week that he “underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor” in May 2012 and wants to use insanity as a defense for his alleged aberrant behavior.
Assistant US Attorneys Douglas Bloom and Justin Anderson fired back with a letter to Karas, accusing Halloran of doing whatever it takes to delay the trial.
“Pretrial motions were due six months ago” but Halloran waited “until the week before trial to request an insanity instruction,” prosecutors wrote.
“Brain surgery, in and of itself, is not a basis for an insanity defense. Halloran does not allege that the surgery — which, based on press reports, involved the removal of a benign tumor from
above his ear two years ago — affected his cognition in any way. To the contrary, at the time, he claimed to have recovered well.
“Given that Halloran’s request was filed simultaneously with his application for a six-month continuance, it appears to be nothing more than an attempt to delay the trial,” the prosecutors said.

The Hollerin' Halloran story gets wackier by the minute.Guess insanity COULD explain the ticket agent incident, the car repair place thing, the post-fun size mayor's blizzard city workee shaming, the Bowne Park Dungeons + Dragons thing and perhaps the horndog thing with the college age intern.But everything? Danny, do you think
the judge is a whackadoodle,too?
Another honest elected, career politician doing what he/she does best.
It started with the dying of the hair and progrssed to joining some wacky religious cult. He could be telling the truth!
This is what Vinnie "The Chin" Gigante did.
So like him, let him die in prison.
Holloran wants to plead insanity, Councilman Ruben Wills is claiming he is being targeted because he is black.
Be fucking men and just deal with your shit.
Christ, what is wrong with Queens.
It could work...
What a nincompoop!
It's WE THE VOTERS that were crazy for putting Halloran in office. Maybe it's the water. Queens is known for all kinds of bad shit. The water must be bad too. That might explain a lot of things.
Great defense from Halloran, "But judge, it ain't my fault. I've been thinkin' on a tumor for years."
If he pleads insanity, then he's telling the truth, isn't he?
Halloran must have been insane to accept $$$$/checks from MOSES STERN, a federally convicted Hasidic embezzler of about $300,000,000 from a bank, in order to build a shopping mall upstate.
he is also a SCHMUCK........
I'll Let Dan comment for me
That's politics, that's politics, it's all about how much.Not about whether or will, it's about how much, and that's our politicians in New York, they're all like that, all like that. And they get like that because of the drive that the money does for everything else. You can't do anything without the fucking money."
sounds pretty cogent,you go rot now Dan
Wonder how that job search went. To some of us that made no sense at all. Why would a judge grant this "moron" a pass to look for a job -- in his present situation. Who wants to hire a "crazy" lawyer? Who would even grant this guy an interview? Waste of time! This guy is unbelievable. He's a bum. He really seems to be -- a despicable human being.
Must be a lot of skeletons in his "closet".
Oh well! Stinks being Halloran. Wonder if he is still doing the bar crawl.
Anon No. 12:
Not insane. Just greedy.
It's WE THE VOTERS.............
You are absolutely right. The signs were all there right along with his BIG inappropriate mouth and EGO to match. Yet he got elected anyway!
With elections right around the corner we need to remember this so we don't elect another asshole.
"who do you trust to represent the freedom and liberty loving citizens"?
the weekly Queens media only supports the lefties. the lefties get elected by a uninformed voter and then gives the tax revenue to the special interest groups, mostly lead by Progressive Marxist loyalists. who then spend...spend ..spend...to keep the publc NYC UNION support.
"where is the honest man" ? Diogenes
Did he have a brain to perform surgery on?
