Corrupt Hank Sheinkopf Consultant Lobbyists



After NY1 Puts Corrupt Lobbyists Sheinkopf on After the Silver Conviction  . . .  It looks Like Bharara Will Have to Put Many More in Jail, Perhaps A Wiseguy or Two Until the Shadow Government is Broken
NY1 which has become the HQ of the lobbyists political consultants was not the least effected by the fact that lobbyists Brian Meare and Richard Runes were at the core of the corruption that convicted Sheldon Silver.  NY1 might as well been asking a prostitute how to run a church, when they asked corrupt lobbyists campaign consultant Hank Sheinkopf and other lobbyists at the center of the NY’s corruption to discuss how to change Albany’s Culture of Corruption.  Sheinkopf  like Silver was one of the architects of Albany’s corruption. Sheinkopf even paid off Silver on behalf of AEG. Sheinkopf actually shouted during his interview that it was time for the DAs to go after the corrupt pols. Sheinkopf took the 5th 51 times in from of the NYS Special Inspector investigating the AEG Corruption Case. Sheldon Silver on hot seat over racino bid as e-mails track money to political committee(NYP)   

Just before that scandal-plagued bidder was picked, Silver solicited “campaign dough” from Hank Sheinkopf, a friend who was lobbying for the company, the Aqueduct Entertainment Group. Another NY1 guest talking reform last night was Parkside’s Evan Stavisky who ran the REBNY’s Jobs for New York PAC which spent over $7 Million on city elections in 2013.  One of the largest contributors to the PAC Jobs for NY was also at the center of the Silver corruption, Glenwood Management.  Parkside has also been paid millions by the Democratic Senate Campaign Community which was being investigated by the Moreland Commission before it was shut down by Silver, Skelos and Cuomo. The third lobbyists Mercury Public Affairs’ Jonathan Greenspun is connected to the Silver trial by a one of the owners of his firm and who is often on NY1 often, Mike McKeon. McKeon responded to the Times Union on behalf of his friend federal witness or rat Brian Meara who was spilling the beans on Silver as we learned at the trial.  McKeon said Meara had nothing to do with any part of the Skelos inquiry. If NY1 the HQ of the Lobbyists Shadow Government won’t changes, don’t expect Albany which they run with their clients money to change.

Sheinkopf Pigs Out On Caller, GOP and Democrats 

'Calling' all consultants (CrainsNY)  Nachman Caller's personal campaign spending equated to $254 per vote he received in a losing November bid against Borough Park Assemblyman Dov Hikind. Mr. Caller’s campaign consultants fared far better. Mr. Caller, a Republican attorney who almost entirely self-funded his campaign with $864,000, got only about 20% of the vote against the longtime incumbent Democrat, Mr. Hikind. But one of Mr. Caller's campaign consultants, Morris Friedman, and a company registered to Mr. Friedman’s address took in more than $160,000, according to the latest filingsA firm occasionally used by consultant Hank Sheinkopf called Peninsula Partners took in $96,000. Mr. Hikind, who has rarely faced electoral challenges during his three decades in office, apparently took Mr. Caller seriously, spending $553,000 of his campaign war chest in 2014. —CB * Hank Sheinkopf,a strategist for the Democratic State Committee(NYO)  Sheinkopf Was Paid $40,000 from the Democratic State Committee in 2014*  Sheinkopf Was Paid $55,000 from the NYS Republican Campaign Committee in 2012

Hank Sheinkopf is one of the most prominent Democratic political consultants in New York and is currently working as a well-paid operative for the state Democratic Party. But Mr. Sheinkopf has also been doing lucrative work for Republicans, although it’s not easy to discern from election filings.

Both share the same Manhattan address. Peninsula has taken in $52,000 from Republican candidate Nachman Caller, who is running against veteran Brooklyn Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind, and in 2012, Peninsula quietly received nearly $73,000 working as a consultant for the Senate Republican Campaign Committee. (In 2010, Mr. Sheinkopf worked as a consultant for the New York Senate Democrats’ campaign arm.) In incorporation filings, Sheinkopf Ltd.’s Andrew Moesel is listed as the CEO of Peninsula. Mr. Moesel didn’t return a request for comment, but Mr. Sheinkopf said Peninsula Partners was "absolutely not" being used to obscure work for Republican clients, and that having various companies was useful for tax filing purposes for many businesses. "We all use four or five companies, all over the country," Mr. Sheinkopf said.

While Sheinkopf Worked for Comptroller Thompson His Partner Norman Levy Did Well With the Pension Funds  "Norman Levy “received a half-million dollars” in 2006 payments from Bill Howell, a major pension fund placement agent, and “appeared sometimes to be Howell’s partner” in controversial deals with the fund, according to a source familiar with the transactions. Investigators concluded that they were splitting fees, and not disclosing it. The payments to Levy - whose conviction for running a parking-ticket-fixing-scam decades ago was also overturned on appeal - were allegedly tied to his introduction of Howell to a principal of Global Strategies, a consulting firm whose client, Intermedia, was seeking millions in city and state pension fund investments. Howell made the placements and shared the fees with Levy, who appeared to be listed as an employee of one Howell entity. Sheinkopf received payments from Levy shortly after Levy was paid by Howell."

NYCLASS adds Sheinkopf to steer new mail blitz (NYO) NYCLASS, the prominent animal rights group seeking to ban horse-drawn carriages from city streets, has added a veteran Democratic operative to steer its new direct mail blitz. Henry Sheinkopf, who has worked as consultant for former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and a host of city and state level candidates, will lead a new mail and field operation targeting the districts of City Council members undecided about the ban. NYCLASS, short for New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets,  will target the Brooklyn districts of Council members Mathieu Eugene and Laurie Cumbo, along with the Manhattan district of Councilman Daniel Garodnick–in addition to several others that have yet to be revealed.

Instead Sheinkopf believes Cuomo should form his own liberal party minority line “a party that doesn’t put pressure on the middle class”. “He has the popularity and resources,” Sheinkopf said of Cuomo’s potential to garner the necessary 50,000 votes to keep a smaller liberal party line in future elections.

“The idea that reviving the corrupt Liberal Party that endorsed [Rudy] Giuliani as a progressive alternative to the Working Families Party won’t fool a single person,” said Khan Shoieb, New York Communications Director for the Working Families Party.

Is  Sheinkopf Hit On the WFP Intended to Lower the Reform Demands on Cuomo to Get the Party's Ballot Line?



Or is Sheinkopf Warning the WFP to Play Ball?
The party says Cuomo is not acting progressive enough, pointing to what they call his watered-down version of a public financing bill, and to his creating a rift between himself and Mayor de Blasio over charter schools. A chess match between Cuomo and the WFP has been going on since the spat began. Shortly after the tension started to mount between the two Cuomo let on he was trying to revive the Liberal Party. But of late reports have surfaced that the Governor’s people are quietly talking with WFP heads behind closed doors.  The party, who will nominate a gubernatorial candidate at a May 31convention, has not ruled out picking someone other than Cuomo

Dumb NY1 Reporter Gets Played By Consultant



NY1 Fools


NY1’s Josh Robin gets played by Hank Sheinkopf on last night Inside City Hall.  Sheinkropf interviewed by Robin last night said that Weiner will be highly competitive if he runs for mayor. He has great outer borough strengths said Sheinkopf. What Robin did not identify Sheinkopf as working to elect Thompson and that Weiner entering the race would weaken de Blasio who many believe is taking votes away from Thompson.  In fact the other consultant on the show last night Roger Stone said that Weiner entering the race would hurt de Blasio the most and Sheinkopf agreed. NY1 always has consultants who spin stories to help their clients.NY1 Online: Strategists Speak About Weiner's Possible Return(NY1)

Corruption in NY Has Increased As Investigative Reporting Has Left Town



Today we are left with clueless reporters who need elected officials, consultants and lobbyists to inform them what is going on.  They are good looking and read scripts well. The investigative mind with an historical knowledge of what he or she was reporting is gone.  The the rough-and-tumble of big-city newsrooms and scoop-hungry reporters like Jack Newfield, Jimmy Breslin, Pete Hamell, Mike McAlary and Tom Robbins are passed or forced out by the changing newspaper business. No better example of how reporting has dumbed down was on view last night in a report on NY1 by reporter Josh Robin.  Robin is show over substance. His Snarky disattached presentation without emotion is considered cool and copied by most young reporters today. They view group acceptance over investigative product.

Robin's report last night was straight out of the Star Wars bar scene where double talk got rid of the guards.  What the NY1 reporter did not understand in his report last night about getting Thompson's reaction to Smith's arrests was that he was really talking to Svengli ventriloquist political consultant/lobbyist Hank Sheinkopf who puts words in both men's mouth and strategy into both men's game plans.  As every old political bull knows Sheinkopf has been advising and working for Smith for years and was the architect behind smith mayoral plan. As the great Wayne Barrett said in 2010 Sheinkopf makes kings so he can then make deals with the kings he’s made. So when NY1's Robin got a quote from Thompson attacking Quinn for Smith's corruption, he was really getting Sheinkopf attacking his own plan.


NYT Pick Up A 2009 Story On Thompson Pension Pay to Play
As Pension Chief, Thompson Gave Work to Donors(NYT) Interviews and an examination of campaign finance reports and other documents suggest frequent overlap between William C. Thompson Jr.’s political ambitions and the comptroller’s operation.  At the same time that Thompson is hitting de Blasio on meeting with lobbyists the NYT publishes a story that lists the former comptroller meetings with pension lobbyist, consultants some of who are crooks.

How Sheinkropf Controls Government and the Press by Deceit
"Sheinkopf copped a memo, (Barrett, Village Voice, 2010) too, obtaining it from an aide to the top Senate staffer, Angelo Aponte, who Sheinkopf personally installed in the key spot. He had the power to do that because the skillful Sheinkopf doubles as a lobbyist and as a political consultant, and had advised Senate Democrats in the elections that led to the 2008 majority, helping to make Malcolm Smith majority leader. Sheinkopf collected $356,741 in consulting fees from the Senate Democratic Campaign Committee at the same time that he was representing AEG and its precursor with Senate Democrats. Having worked for Bill Thompson and Mike Bloomberg most recently, Sheinkopf makes kings so he can then make deals with the kings he’s made."  
A King's Pension Deal For Sheinkopf Partner
While Sheinkopf Worked for Thompson His Partner Norman Levy Did Well With the Pension Funds  "Norman Levy “received a half-million dollars” in 2006 payments from Bill Howell, a major pension fund placement agent, and “appeared sometimes to be Howell’s partner” in controversial deals with the fund, according to a source familiar with the transactions. Investigators concluded that they were splitting fees, and not disclosing it. The payments to Levy - whose conviction for running a parking-ticket-fixing-scam decades ago was also overturned on appeal - were allegedly tied to his introduction of Howell to a principal of Global Strategies, a consulting firm whose client, Intermedia, was seeking millions in city and state pension fund investments. Howell made the placements and shared the fees with Levy, who appeared to be listed as an employee of one Howell entity. Sheinkopf received payments from Levy shortly after Levy was paid by Howell."

As the state evaluated the billion-dollar proposals for the Aqueduct Racetrack racino in 2009, principals for the shadiest bidder gave thousands to a political committee controlled by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver — money that nobody today can account for. And months later, just before that scandal-plagued bidder was picked, Silver solicited “campaign dough” from Hank Sheinkopf, a friend who was lobbying for the company, the Aqueduct Entertainment Group. * Sheldon Silver on hot seat over racino bid as e-mails track money to political committee(NYP)  *Silver: Legislature Needs A Role In Casino Siting(YNN) *Gambling Industry Money Is Streaming Into Albany(NYT)

Looks Like City Hall News Missed A Couple of Big Losers This Week: Parkside, Sheinkof
City Hall News WINNERS & LOSERS: Not all of this week's winners and losers were on Tuesday's ballot. There are plenty more to recognize, like winners Eric Ulrich, Jerry Kassar, Mike Fishman, Vito Lopez and Colin Campbell, and losers Gatemouth, Evan Stavisky, Anthony Weiner, Gary Ackerman and Ed Towns
True News Lobbyist Consultants Losers: Parkside Group, Hank Sheinkopf, Peter Weiss, Jennifer Josephs and the Thomas Jefferson Club

Hank Sheinkopf candidate Deidra Towns in the hotly contested 54AD came in dead last in a seat which her brother held for a long time.  This loss and the fact that he tool the 5th in the investigation of the AEG investigation will not stop clueless journalist from quoting him in their political stories.  Peter Weiss and Jennifer Josephs candidate for Brooklyn Civil Court JudgeCheryl Gonzales got smashed by Sharon Hudson. Gonzales had the support of the NYT Daily News and the Brooklyn Reformers.  Hudson had the support of Lopez and the political operative Rev. Robinson. Turner beat Weprin 2 to 1 in  area covered by the Thomas Jefferson Club.  In spite of TJ club inability to GOTV our dummy are still lining up to speak at mighty club.

 "[Bill] de Blasio’s victory is an omen of what may become the defining story of America’s next political era: the challenge, to both parties, from the left. It’s a challenge Hillary Clinton should start worrying about now." [Peter Beinart] * "The real key to the Dante ad was not that it reminded black voters that the candidate had an African-American wife. It was the way it appealed to our multiethnic yearning for racial harmony." [Gail Collins] * How Bill Thompson won Yorkville (and de Blasio lost it). [Dana Rubinstein]
