Meeks has Comrie's back

From the Queens Chronicle:

Congressman Gregory Meeks (D-Queens, Nassau) is set to join the parade of local officials endorsing former Councilman Leroy Comrie in his bid to unseat state Sen. Malcolm Smith (D-Hollis).

Meeks is expected to lead a contingent of up to a dozen elected office holders giving the challenger their backing Tuesday morning at Comrie’s campaign headquarters in St. Albans.

In a related matter, Democratic donors also appear to be flocking to Comrie.

In campaign finance reports filed last week, which are mandated by the state 32 days before the Sept. 9 primary, Comrie’s camp reported more than $81,000 still in the bank.

Of course, the Jamaica Good Ol' Boys Club want to hold onto power as long as they can, so these useless, do-nothing and crooked elected officials are going to have each others back. Why upset the status quo? A reason very little ever gets done in Jamaica or other places.

Meeks is such a crooked and corrupt official, amazing he has not been put away yet. Comrie is pretty useless yet continues to go from one political gig to another.

Jamaica politics is filled with corruption and Jamaica is filled with CRAP.

That's a mighty big back.

The corruption starts in Queens Borough Hall.
Comrie still collecting most of his salary while running for another political position.
An overpaid photographer.
An overpaid press officer.
An overpaid driver.
Library fiasco still unresolved.
No accountability. No transparency.
