    Beware: Front Street's Waving Sex Offender in costume

    I totally agree. She obviously has some serious problems. Doing a TV story on her is classless.
  2. I’m serious. I saw her probably 3-4 times. I used to stop in there for lunch quite a bit.
  3. I saw her about a year ago working at the Price Chopper in Chenango.
  4. Mollen is an angry and vindictive man. I’ve heard about it and seen it first hand during my career. I agree, I do not think this endorsement will do much to help Battisti. Even those who supported Mollen in 2015 admit it was time for the old man to go.

    From a source inside of the BPD

    That’s actually a tactic I used to hear about all the time. The older defense attorneys in town are masters of it. You call at the last minute and have the judge add your case to the schedule, if they like you and they do it, the media doesn’t know to show up. So your client stays out of the news. Unless the media finds out, which apparently they did.

    New guy on WBNG News

    I think he's very good. I'm actually shocked he's in Binghamton and not a major city. WBNG is still difficult to watch. Their idea of investigative journalism is an insult to even first year broadcasting students.

    WBNG Airing Live Feed of ballot count for D.A Race

    There are more registered Democrats than Republicans in Broome County. If the Democrats get their voters out, and 25% of Korchak supporters vote for the Democrat, I think it would be enough to defeat Battisti.
  8. Maurice Hinchey was clearly at the end of his career in 2010. I’m genuinely not sure he was all there in 2010... he made some major gaffes. He visited a fire house I was at, and it seemed like he didn’t know where he was. Also keep in mind 2010 was the Tea Party year. So that life’s Phillips in certain areas of the old district.
  9. Hopefully Steve is running for Congress. George Phillips seems like a nice, well intentioned guy, but he just can’t win.

    Predictions on the DA Race?

    All these predictions are about where I think it will turn out. But I’ll go with Korchak by 10, so 55/45.
  11. Fred Akshar recently sent out an attack mailer on Korchak/Cornwell on the opioid crisis, saying Battisti would do something about it. I've talked to about 15 people who received the mailer, and it backfired big time, for two reasons. As an EMT who follows government policy and programs closely, I can tell you the current DA's office has done more to fight the opioid crisis than any other office in Broome County. People I work with, and talk to, all agree with this. Cornwell implemented several programs and the number of overdoses are way down. What has Akshar done about the opioid crisis? No one can point to anything. One person said he held a big meeting at Binghamton University. Okay, he held a meeting. That's it? Yup... The other major error in Akshar's attack mailer comes from his printing company. All 15 people I've spoken to who received it, all received a copy with Akshar defaced in what seems to be a printer error. His eye, lips, and shirt are all marked up. It looks like he got beat up. And I won't comment on the white substance on his lips. Good try, Fred. But this mailer has actually made more people question you and Battisti, because it's blatantly false, and you look like a clown.

    Battisti fundraiser tonight... EMBARRASSING turnout!

    Based on my conversations and own experience, I’m convinced Battisti doesn’t have even half the support he wants you to think he has. I have neighbors who never asked for a Battisti yard sign, yet one magically appeared. Same thing happened with a coworker. Out of the Republicans I have talked to, 60-70% are supporting Korchak. And the people supporting Korchak are enthusiastic. The few Battisti supporters I’ve encountered can’t express why they’re behind him. Korchak also out fundraised Battisti in their recent public filing, and Korchak collected 1,000 more signatures when petitions were submitted.

    The Absolute State of the Press & Sun-Bulletin

    We still get home delivery of the press and sun, mostly for obituaries. Twenty years ago, it was a heck of a paper. Ten years ago, it was decent. Today, it is best used to wrap valuables or potty train a pet. There were a couple days, about two weeks ago, there wasn't a single local story in the entire newspaper. For me, that was the final straw. There's no coverage of local events anymore. And news stories run two or three days after the news actually breaks. We will be canceling our subscription as soon as our current discounted promotion runs out this summer.
  14. No local law enforcement union has endorsed in the DA's race. The last local endorsement was for Cornwell in 2015, and before that for Korchak in 2007.

    Garnar's version of the Data Breach

    According to the AgZeit Facebook page, Dutcher handles the Facebook posts. And if you look at the posts, most of them are during the work day. So is Dutcher running his business on County time?
