Polacco Gets Screwed
Tony Sinagra, the city GOP boss, broke a tie last week making freshman lawmaker Andi Turco Levin the Minority Leader of the Common Council over two term Alderman Ron Polacco.
Really Sinagra?! Ron Polacco was the only GOP voice the council had for the previous two years when all then Minority Leader Al Teetsil did was side with the Dems.
Rumor has it, Sinagra and Cahill cooked up the deal because they know Polacco wants to be the 2011 GOP nominee and they know he would destroy Cahill in a primary.
While I could care less the inner workings of the Republican party, Ron Polacco should be the Minority Leader, he earned it, to give it to Alderwoman Turco-Levin, who has paid no dues and has literally been in office for 10 minutes is insulting and embarrassing to Alderman Polacco and is meant to look that way on purpose. The Cahill/Sinagra deal is so obvious and I think it will backfire miserably.
