Governor Eliot Spitzer Endorses Jonathan Sennett for D.A.




Governor Eliot Spitzer today back Sennett for Ulster County District Attorney. Gov. Spitzer who as the states Chief Law Enforcement Official was knonw as the Sheriff of Wall St. is pretty confident in who he wants to be at 1818 Wall St. as our next D.A. and that is Joanthan R. Sennett. This endorsement is the most significant, more so then Hillary and Schumer because Spitzer's forte is fighting corruption, fighting crime and reform...Sennett should be very humbled by the support of Governor Eliot Spitzer.



"The people of Ulster County will be well-served with Jonathan Sennett as district attorney, I respect his skills as a prosecutor and his dedication to finding cost-effective ways to reduce crime.Sennett has pledged to fight crime by implementing early case evaluation, rapidly responding to cases involving special victims and combating drug dealers and gang leaders by "dismantling their organizations from the top down."

- Governor Eliot Spitzer


Spitzer said Sennett's ideas will guide the DA's office into the 21st century.

Thank you Mr. Spitzer, I'm certain that Jon Sennett will live up to expectations. The intelligence,integrity, and ethics that you have brought to the governorship makes us proud. I have no doubt that Jon will bring those qualities to his position as DA. Keep fighting for our state's safety and security against the forces of theocracy that are attempting to impune us. The importance of ensuring that terrorists are not flying under the radar in our state is of utmost importance. I strongly support the rights of ALL residents to have proper ID (including myself)so that "unknown entities" are not commonplace. It is time that my fingerprint is my ID. Biometrics are the best method of ensuring someone's identity. They cannot be forged,tampered with, or deleted. I have confidence that you have made the right choice in endorsing Mr. Sennett. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you.

Spitzer isn't very popular right now, not sure how wise this was Jeremy to exploit this one. This may backfire. Someone wrote, a candidate wouldn't want to be endorsed by the kkk. Well, this is as close as a candidate can get. With only a 30% approval rating, spitzer is loved only by the core, which Sennett already has.

See the partisan sunami develop? Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Elliot Spitzer, and even bitterly Kevin Cahill are lining up to support the Democratic candidate for DA. Ulster County is a blue county in a blue state. Get used to it.

The democratic unity is more important. Approval ratings are based on a small focus group, made up of primarily old people that are home alone and need someone to talk to. This skews the outcome and gives the impression that our populace is made up of regressives. The real measure is how desperate the spoiler campaign of Bradley has become. The nastiness is quite telling and has raised red flags from here to DC. Eliot is on the side of law and order,not the side of organized crime. His support should be a wake up call to those who still believe that the protection of criminal behavior by interfering in politics will go un-noticed. It has not. The forces that back Jon are far more powerful than small time mayors and dis-reputable businesses.

The Dadly / Mayor Sott-auced / Spada people are getting desperate. Their attacks are getting more personal, more violent. Letter today in Freeman against Sennet was from "a mom with three kids" BUT ALSO employee of one of Dadly's biggest financial supporters --- but like all Dadly's dunces, they don't identify themselves or their role in the Dadly machine...
A vote for that fat, bald spoiled brat is a vote for corruption and the continuation of good ole boy dominance in UC.

Was that SKEWING of the regressive populace true when Spitzer's numbers were over 60%? Always trying to make excuses when things aren't looking rosey.

why are the bratley's stealing / vandalizing all Senett's signs?
why is bratley drinking EVERY NIGHT AT A BAR?
why does bratley keep meeting with Al Spada in Kingston?
why did two guys who together gave bratley 20 THOUSAND DOLLARS (Eli Basch / Joe O'Cokehead)get appointed to the Dem Executive Committee 2 days before vote whether or not to give bratley an opportunity to primary an endorsed democrat, though bratley was never, ever a democrat ...
how could bratley have walked into that exec comm meeting WITH 19 NEW EXEC COMM. APPOINTEES APPOINTED IN THE DAYS BEFORE THE RESCEHEDULED MEETING, INCLUDING THE TWO MONEYMEN ABOVE, ALMOST ALL OF WHOM WERE ON BRATLEY'S ELECTION COMMITTE, and honsestly believe he would ever be seen as a person with any degree of integrity again...
how can he hold his head up?
how does he live with that?
remember, its on tape, bratley, and it will be posted somewhere soon, so everyone can see how you tried to buy the exec commitee (courtesy of eager salesmen John Parody & sons) and... you .... still .... lost...
you are done here, chubby.
Worst. Candidate. Ever.

Bradley is fading away by the minute.

His campaign amounts to nothing more than defiant lawn signs, relatives turned vigilantes and a few misguided, but noisy, mastodons inside Kingston.

His cohorts are already hedging bets on who will win between Sennett and Carnright, with odds favouring Carnright due to the inability of party leadership to undo the extreme divisiveness it helped create.

The interesting question now becomes - how will the masses react if Sennett looses because Bradley split the democratic vote?

The US "Democrat controlled" Congress has less than a 30% approval rating for the entire year. Bush's approval rating is only slightly higher.

My point is that most people have lost all faith in their current government leaders.

Iris T said...

Just curious, when was the last Democratic primary that Sennett voted in?

Jeremy, STOP THE CENSORSHIP. If the comment isn't personal in nature, POST IT. Stop being a baby. Why are you so touchy about posts critical of endorsements? You have no problem being critical of the Union endorsements gotten by Cahill, republican candidate for Kingston's Mayor. Explain why you don't post these kinds of comments, and maybe I'll stop.

Polls are skewed towards the old people when they're up as well as down. It's not a rosy (no "e") picture. I think we can blame Lou Dobbs and his anti-illegal immigrant tirades for this one. Almost nightly he's been fanning the flames of racism. He hates the fact that our nation has so many illegals to fill our jobs because employers are so greedy. Does he take them on? No,he just rails against smart moves by Spitzer to reign in all the uninsured drivers that are costing New Yorkers an arm and a leg in insurance premiums. Illegals are here because bushies are hiring. Just look at where they work. Every business that hires them is owned by a greedy republican pig that couldn't care less about the impact on our society. The feds aren't going to stop them because Bush wants them here. Since we're all paying, we should make them pay to drive as well. Spitzer is right,and Lou is just a loser that will soon be replaced with Rick Sanchez. What an irony that will be! I can hear that old fat pig bitching now. "Damned Cubano stole my job." Just watch how that couple hundred dollar a year cut in car insurance sends Eliot's ratings skyhigh.

Richard Clarke is the guy who could've prevented 911. He's advising Spitzer on how to track illegals in NYS. All of this garbage about giving away licenses is just like like how the Bush administration didn't want to know about an impending attack. These xenophobic looneys that hate the mexicans that they themselves hire are just trying to thwart Spitzer's efforts to track them and find their employers. They're scared of this plan because then we'd know where they work. They want to cheat on the taxes and social security payments to protect their wallets. They're just sleazy opportunists that want to keep their second class workers from getting them in trouble. Guess what happens if one hits your car? Your insurance pays and you get the price hike. No recourse to sue anyone. You'd be lucky if you even found out who was driving.

If it saves me money,let them drive.

Spitzer's smart,I'm sure he's got investigators looking into the biggest donors of all the state senators to determine why they're afraid of tracking illegals. He's going after the big fish and he's onto something big. All across the country these businesses are scared shitless that this tracking system developed by our intelligence agencies will bring them down. The people that hire illegals are giving away our jobs. They lower prices so real americans can't compete. They're traitors and Spitzer knows it. Go Eliot! Fry'em. Take them down so real americans can work at decent wages. Enough is enough!

Anyone who wants to form an opinion about this must first know what they are talking about. Go to the gov's website to get the facts first.

Then, after reading it, feel free to opine away. This guessing game crap is rediculous. Go get the facts, jack.

I'll stick to what Spitzer tells me,not the press release. Jack. You can believe what you read elsewhere.

The official press releases didn't form the right opinion. Now it's time to force the opinion to support the policy.

Since when do you need a driver's license to insure a car? Dumbasses. You can insure a POTATO if you really wanted to, and it doesn't require a potato license. Save you money? Let's say it does. Is $20 bucks a year worth giving illegals the 'golden ticket' the license has become in this country?

Racism? WHAT RACE? Illegal immigrants are in this country under the flag of MANY countries. What, this license program is only for Mexican illegals? There is a HUGE difference between having personal problems with illegal immigrants, and legal immigrants.

This same action DESTROYED Governor Davis, democrat from California. It will destroy Ellios Spitzer too.

If you believe illegal immigrants should be able to live and work here in the US, I want to know the next time you go stand on line someplace (grocery store, bank). Because I am sure you will have no problem with me and my friends jumping ahead of you in that line, without asking.

3:56- "Bradley fading by minute"
sound lke your hedging your bet against your GUY. I think your right Bradley will split the vote.Although the winner will be Bradley or Carnright! The Dems had a chance to get it right and secure victory. The LUNES On The Left wanted their man Sennett At all cost. Sennett will NOT win . Bradley will pull enough votes from each party to give him a great shot to win. MAYBE NEXT TIME!

Anonymous said...

Oh the majority is a bunch of "LUNES"? Have you checked out the margin by which Eliot won the governorship? Yeah it's pretty clear who the lunatics are,they all support Bradley at all costs. Bradley supporters make the republicans look sane. That's the idea,isn't it? Put up a spoiler to make sure you protect your rackets with a limited DA?

Anonymous said...

7:48-Your bigotry is PROVEN with your "Ellios" slur. You've also needed a license to insure a car for decades you moron. You think you have sole rights to your "golden ticket" but you don't. Plenty of other people aren't allowed to have it without being illegal. But I guess the term "illegal" being used to describe 20 million democrats that are lifelong citizens is just okay with you. Isn't that just like branding the jews during the holocaust? I guess you were okay with that too. The SSA is being used to strip americans' of their rights on the basis of their political affiliation. I'm not willing to give in and let you nazi's win. We're not all leaving the country so you whackos can have a theocracy. You're the minority remember? I guess you forgot that you're fighting against our country from within. You already do cut the line and it's about time you got cut off at the knees. You are the invaders and you are the reason illegals are here. You don't want them tracked because you don't want to get caught. Eliot is onto your scam and he's going to string you up. Pack up and go to Iran if theocracy is what you want,I'm sure you'd be very comfortable there.

That 20 million "undocumented americans" refers to american citizens,not foreign nationals as the republican talking points want you idiots to believe. They've systematically dis-enfranchised a segment of our nation that they deem to be a hindrance to their agenda. It's going to be impossible to wipe out every document of our existence. Too bad the science emerging in the next few years will legitimately relegate the "Bubels" to the lunatic fringe. We the "hindrance" will rule over you with our intellectual superiority.

No, the 20 million is REFERRING to Mexican citizens living in MEXICO you MORON. There are 'only' 12 million in the US

JoeyB said...

What a bunch of FUCKING ASSHOLES who have come out of the Kingston sewers to 'defend' Spitzer's plan. They 'defend' it, by using the practice of personal destruction on those who disagree with Spitzer. You can try to scare people, intimidate, school yard bully tactics. Anyone with a brain see right through your tactics. They can see you are a sad person, life without any true meaning.

Anonymous said...

The 20 million figure refers to "undocumented americans" not mexicans. You think there are only 20 million mexicans in mexico? (Kingston schools fail again!) The figure of 12 million mexicans living here is probably correct during the summer. If Spitzer's plan goes into effect,these year rounders that work here in NY permanently will be found. No one is finding them now. Do you have a plan for finding them? Eliot does. The only fucking asshole here is Joey Bubel. His miserable little existence and bigotted views are simply pitiful. I checked your house out and I can see why you're so pathetic. With your lack of education,you're just doomed to failure and misery. Who could possibly employ you? Who would want to? Your outward hatred of everyone is more a reflection of your own self hate. Go see a shrink. Everytime you post,you get more hateful. It's going to take your life.

Dear All,
There is an upcoming forum that may shed light on this confusing issue of immigrant access to driver's licenses. I have not formed an opinion yet myself.

A Community Forum on Restoring Immigrant Access to Driver's Licenses: The Facts Beyond the Hysteria
Saturday, October 27 at Noon
Rhinebeck Town Hall
80 E. Market Street , Rhinebeck , NY

Here is their press release:
On September 21st, Governor Spitzer announced his plan to restore access to driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants living in New York State , and to implement new anti-fraud procedures in the driver's license application process. Over the past month, the restoration of immigrant access to driver's licenses has reached the front of every newspaper in the state, and has been accompanied by fierce criticisms by certain politicians.

Many opponents of the plan have used the opportunity to spread misconceptions about immigrants, driver's licenses, and New York 's security.

This Saturday, experts on the driver's license policy will be in Rhinebeck to explain the facts behind the plan and why it's smart policy for New York State . Speakers will include security experts, religious leaders, civil rights advocates, academics, and legal professionals.

Come listen to the experts and show that New York supports immigrants!

Presented by Dutchess County Legislator Joel Tyner, the Real Majority Project, La Fuente, NYCLU Lower Hudson Valley Chapter, the New York Immigration Coalition, SEIU 32BJ, Professional Staff Congress AFT Local 2334, Workers’ Rights Law Center, Somos La Llave del Futuro—Mid-Hudson/Catskills, Rural Migrant Ministry, Grace Episcopal Church, UFCW International.

This is a public education event. An organization’s participation in this event does not constitute an endorsement of any candidate.

See you all there - I'll be wearing a pink carnation in my lapel.

Bratton (LAPD, formerly NYPD, chief), Preston (Acting Supt. NYSP) and Richard Clarke support Spitzer's plan. It will help to document the illegal aliens, and since they'll have to go through the same process to get their license as we do, they'll have to learn our laws. Also, 13 other states allow illegal aliens to have driver's licenses. It's not as if NY is in the forefront. And, this isn't what was Gov. Gray Davis's undoing - it was the energy crisis and the rolling brown-outs along with their financial crises. Though I feel that the illegals ought to be rounded up and sent home, I realize that if they weren't here, our prices for food and in the hospititality industry would skyrocket. Americans are too lazy to pick lettuce or clean hotel rooms (and if they did they'd unionize and demand prevailing wage). When the illegals come here, they work hard - you don't see them standing in the welfare line. You see them riding their bicycles in the worst weather getting to work. They're very industrious - can you see a teenager these days doing that? Americans are spoiled - we're not willing to sacrifice anything. The illegals will have 20 of them in an apartment and go without their x-box, etc. They work for very little money - at least if they had a license they'd learn how to drive and not just guess!

You go to school stupid? Apparently you came out the same way. 20mil is the number of Mexican citizens, living IN Mexico, BELOW the poverty line for their country.

Anonymous said...

"you go to school stupid?" What does that have to do with illegal immigrants? Your points are so irrelevent and mis-guided. Bubel clearly stated that 20 million illegals were living here on the freeman blog. Changing the subject to fit the number is just despererate. Are you suggesting that every mexican that lives on less than a dollar a day is really living here? How could they afford it? Give up moron you're in over your head. Come up with a new reason that you oppose the tracking of illegals. Or are you their employer? It can't just be bigotry,can it?

Anonymous said...

You didn't get the joke. You go to school.. came out the same way. ha ha, ha.., Oh well.

I knew what he was saying, although he could have been a bit more clear. If you read in context, he was talking about the North American Union, that some in BOTH, repubs and dems, parties want. Each side has differing reasons, repubs for businesses, and dems for getting more on the gov't dole. He sugguested that by creating such a union, would assimilate 20 million people, whose families make less than $2 a day. The repubs (on the side of this plan), see this as a business market. The dems (on the side of this plan), see this as a progressive society's responsibility to right the wrongs of poverty in Mexico. Everyone else, including myself, sees this as an afordability issue, and the destruction of our constitution (I know there are people here who think that would be a good thing).

Anonymous said...

Actually, it means the subordination of the mexican government under OUR constitution. The real motive is continental security. The fact that mexico does not allow foreign investment or property rights to non-citizens is the root cause of their woes. We'd all buy homes there otherwise and they'd be financially homogenized. The opposition to Spitzer's plan is not linked to the open borders plan. The republican talking points are ludicrous.
