    Election Night Thread

    As an aside, I think what happened to Dan was disgusting. There should have been, and still should be, mass outrage at the city wasting public money to silence him for his justified noisemaking about the sewage plant. For what, because he hired an intern with his own money? He can hire as many interns as he wants if they're helping him investigate the city's bungling. We need more of those kind of nuts-and-bolts issues from local Democrats and less of the fringe PLOT/Citizen Action lunacy. I have nothing against Sophia, but it's disappointing that this shameful behavior was rewarded. The cancer in our local government is on full display this year.
  2. Like I said in the other thread, he's selling a fantasy to older rural people that he's a mom and apple pie church-goer in a flannel shirt, not a sleazy goon. A certain percentage of his supporters will see that video and think it's sweet that he's praying for that very upset man. Battisti was running on the same tactics, promising them that the area is more dangerous than ever and he's going to be the family man who brings back the days when you could leave your doors unlocked and reverses the opioid epidemic. Some of his supporters are more delusional and cult-like than ever on social media. They still have no idea they've been lied to about anything and are on his page talking with Birdie about filing their FCC reports. Holy cow. I'd like to know what happened at SUNY Broome, too. It looked from Solak's video like they were having a chat with the guy in the red shirt.

    Fred Akshar's Tattoo

    A lot of older rural voters think they're supporting a small town boy in a flannel shirt, an Officer Friendly type, who made good and cares about their values. I don't think any of them voted for the Clintons, either, and this would probably be relevant to their interests. Assuming, of course, people can organize an alternative to Akshar. Now we know Datta's machine is vulnerable. Cornwell and Korchak may need to start grooming someone for a primary challenge and to snarf up as many third-party lines as they can. We may have just elected the highest-ranking Libertarian official in New York. Hickey has an opportunity here to help make it the most relevant it has been in years as a spoiler for corrupt Republicans and hammer them back into a limited government platform.

    So far, I've never heard about her lying about anything, just getting confused. Pretty sure some prominent BCVoicers claim to have seen the picture and would know what if she's right.

    Mine was fine. Workers were OK, but voters were mostly milling around in circles trying to chat with friends at the table making it a little disorganized. I was mostly miffed that I filled in the biggest, blackest, boldest, most perfect circle you've ever seen for Korchak, marked it with the precision of an architectural draft, and the optical machine gave me a warning that it was "ambiguous". Second time drawing over it, it took. That's what left me wondering about the supposed undervotes in the count.

    Paul by less than 1% at the moment. This could go either way depending on which precincts, specifically, are still out, but it's going to be ugly and probably come down to absentee ballots. In the primary, I believe those tilted for Korchak, but not enough. Also, currently, Battisti's lead is smaller than the number of allegedly spoiled ballots. Those need to be reviewed.

    We saw this last time. The rural areas reported in last, for Battisti, and closed the gap. This is a great start but I don't want to be premature. He'll probably pull ahead of Gelson but she's definitely doing better than I thought.
  9. That's the same figuring I was doing when I floated the idea of Korchak running a third-party campaign, and I'm sure they literally did the math with spreadsheets and saw that the numbers worked. Akshar is a joke to area Democrats and his loud, near-psychotic endorsement won Battisti the primary through the kind rural voters who are impressed by chainsaws and rented pickup trucks - but only by a single percentage point. Gelson, nice lady that she is, just never really found her natural constituency. The people I've met supporting her are mostly mild older hippy-types. What Korchak surely recognized is that while Republican registration is lopsided out in the sticks, the total population of this county is lopsided in the larger towns and city - areas where Paul lost big among Republicans. How much worse is the bloodbath going to be when you mix in all those West Siders who couldn't vote, but are just as grossed out as everybody else? I know what I'm hoping happens, but even if it doesn't, the results are going to be a case study worth publishing in party campaign manuals. Korchak had vision to see that there were a lot of people who weren't going to be represented on the ballot, and big brass balls to carry on the fight where most candidates would go home and start fishing for a job. In fact, Michael Korchak just might be... The toughest guy in Broome County.
  10. I spread your suggestion around, Pete, as well as what I'm doing. Personally, I wrote in three "REMOVE DATTA"s today. A friend said he did four in the First Ward.
  11. The thing is, I doubt it was Datta's choice. You have to see it to believe it, but Battisti can reach out to someone at 10:00 am to schedule a meeting at 2:00 pm, forget to put it on his calendar or mention it to anyone, then just wander off to do something else, leaving people standing in his office while his law partners rush around trying to figure out what the meeting was about so they can cover it for him. Clients have been left sitting alone in front of a judge on their court date because he randomly decided to do something else instead that day. It can take him weeks to solve problems that most people can solve with one phone call, because there will be a dozen false starts and misfires because anything actually happens, and this is when it's costing him hundreds of dollars and he should be highly motivated to get it done. It wouldn't surprise me if he's covering up a learning disability.
  12. Now that you mention it, I may specifically write-in "REMOVE DATTA" on a couple of lines.

    Disgusting. Battisti makes up last minute overdose LIE

    There are things I can't say about what I've seen Battisti do because he'd probably try to retaliate against the people involved, but "even more despicable and morally bankrupt than I thought" should be the advertising jingle at his next law firm.
  14. Oh, it's almost certainly him. He's developed a unique style. https://twitter.com/realcalharris
  15. I have a good feeling about tomorrow. Anything could happen, but the Prince of Lies has taken a bruising, and it's all his own fault.

    Did you see the "Mirrela's Man" troll account Battisti's team is allowing to post all over the page? There have been some silly troll accounts spouting facts about Battisti, but comparing a murder victim to Sloth from 'The Goonies', after Battisti's bestest buddy earned the trust of his grieving mother to pump-and-dump her? That is some sick, Satanic trash. Naturally, Paul's wife doesn't care and Debbie Morello is oblivious to what she's clicking 'like' on.

    It took a few hours for it to sink in what was really going on here, and I'm amazed that as skeptical of Battisti as I am, I can still miss the real angle on his BS when it's happening right in front of me. Once again, Battisti demonstrates his flagrant dishonesty, broken legal reasoning, and disrespect for the time of others, not to mention federal tax dollars wasted processing a bunch of bogus complaints.

    Democrats for Korchak

    Which is it? Does Korchak "gain" off these, or is it "not good"? It's a known strategy in the voter suppression playbook. It's also worth noting that the WFP has already apparently sent mass messages for Gelson and Battisti didn't bother to send his flying monkeys to harass them about those. This reads like some kind of a bullshitty setup. Regardless, if the messages are authentic, Battisti is giving his supporters bad legal advice and wasting their time filing these FCC complaints, part of his long tradition of giving bad legal advice and wasting peoples' time generally. Rule 47 CFR 64.1200 does not govern unsolicited messages, it governs automated unsolicited messages. The vendors that campaigns hire to do mass texts use real employees who send them one-by-one in order to comply with the law. There is no way the Battisti team isn't aware of this. This isn't Datta's first rodeo. They're just hurling false accusations that legal things are illegal in order to upset and confuse voters. Again. The election is Tuesday. The FCC wouldn't act by then. It's purely about manipulation and harassment.

    I thought someone had established that he was one of Battisti's former clients. Either way, now that Cal Harris and Rob Levesque are involved, this is truly the greatest race of all time. I didn't think it could get any better after Mirella, but here we are. Why haven't we heard from Debbie Preston? Is Matt Ryan going to crash a water truck into a polling place? What could possibly happen next?

    Democrats for Korchak

    I've gotten one, as well. Note that the text does not actually state it is from Korchak. False-flag robocall campaigns to make an opponent look bad are not new. The NRCC used the same strategy years ago, starting a phone call "Hi! I'm calling about [Democrat]!", but only disclosing that it was from the NRCC at the end. The assumption was that if you hung up before you got to it, you'd be angry at the Democrat, and then the system would call back repeatedly, making you even angrier. The Battisti campaign seems to have jumped on ordering his followers to file FCC complaints within about half an hour of the messages firing. A cynic would think they were ready with that call to action, and on a Sunday night, after working hours, when much of the Korchak campaign wouldn't be on-call to respond immediately. This is exactly the kind of thing Paul would do.

    Another fact check against Paul Battisti

    Ginger, I was making a joke about the reacharounds people give each other in our local politics. I did inquire with a friend who participates in the BCBA and was told that Battisti is no longer serving as president, and apparently is not listed on the board, either. I don't know what their internal selection process is or even if he's still paying dues there. More to the point of your question, complaints against lawyers don't usually go through local bar associations anyway. There's a state organization that handles complaints confidentially. You'd usually have no way of knowing what kind of disciplinary proceedings an attorney is embroiled in until it gets bad enough that the state takes public action - which won't usually happen. It certainly wouldn't surprise me if he stays awake at night, afraid that someone is going to leak his AGC file to WBNG.

    Another fact check against Paul Battisti

    Yeah, it only impacts the life and liberty of thousands of people a year, as well as the future of every crime victim. If you think people are getting screwed over now, bear in mind that Battisti has been the go-to defense attorney in half the police corruption cases in a two-county radius. He was the president of the local bar association for years. It's possible that he's been pushed out of that role, same way he was pushed off the board at GHS, but there's nowhere I can look to find out. You see, the bar association's website has been down for quite some time. Reminds me of the time he lost the website for his own law firm. 🙄

    Democrats for Korchak

    I agree, but he's not the first closeted Korchak supporter who is afraid of retaliation, and not just from Fran's loyal knob-polishers at SUNY Broome. Incidentally, in my opinion, this whole thing and the constant aspersions in the community that the fix is in because of Fran - which Debbie Morello has absolutely had a hand in provoking - has damaged the reputation of the college. SUNY Broome employees who live in town are getting sick of their neighbors accusing them of being Battisti supporters because of their place of employment, and sick of being afraid to speak publicly about why they aren't.

    Democrats for Korchak

    I don't blame him. A lot of Paul's public supporters are the psychopathic recidivist scum he's represented and the craziness he's causing with his constant lies is going to get someone assaulted or vandalized.
