NY1 Puts Lobbyists On TV and They Get More Contracts
NY1 Wiseguy D'Amato Accused of Setting Up A Fake Company to Get Women Set Aside Contracts From the Feds

D’Amato used ally as fake executive, cheated out of $5M: suit(NYP)An ex-ally and business partner of former Sen. Alfonse D’Amato slapped the power broker with a federal lawsuit Thursday alleging he and others swindled her out of at least $5 million in commissions — and tried using her as a “stalking horse” to deceive the feds into giving them lucrative contracts set aside for women-owned businesses. Mary Arnold, a longtime DC lobbyist and Florida resident, is seeking $20 million in punitive damages and to recover at least $5 million she claims she is owed through a contract with Precision Discovery, a Manhattan-based litigation consulting firm run by the longtime New York politician and his brother, Armand D’Amato, the suit claims.The Manhattan federal suit says Precision, which is also named as a defendant, created an entity known as AEDDiscovery LLC while trying to score government contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars to provide electronic document retrieval services for use in court. The suit claims that the defendants’ plan was to make Arnold majority shareholder in name only for AEDDiscovery as it pursued the fed contracts. But she would have no power and see little — if any — of the profits.
You Have to Give Errol Louis and NY1 Credit for Journalist Principals
In Defense of Louis and NY1
The Thrilla in Manilla (Brooklyn) NY1 debate last night was not a love fest between the host and the anti-lobbyists candidate Doug Biviano, but at least the station and host saw it as their journalists obligation to put the controversial candidate on news program. And that was not hard for the station that gives lobbyists and consultants free air time on a news program to help their clients and get new ones. While the buzz last night was all about how the host threaten to cut the mike and end the debate with the very first question to assembly candidate Doug Biviano. * Liu’s campaign sent a complaint to the state Board of Elections claiming the IDC Initiative violated state spending limits by sending thousands of glossy mailings to voters in recent days urging them to support state Sen. Tony Avella in September, the Daily News reports: http://goo.gl/RmiW4N
NY1's Inside City Hall let the real information that came out that effect the voters of the 52AD and the rest of the city was the unchecked role of illegal PAC and campaign loop holes that seem to drive every campaign run by the WFP. Data and Field in 2009 and NYCLASS PAC in the mayor's race. Until that debate community groups have not held one debate and the local media has not covered the race. A news desert in the most educated district in Brooklyn about who will lead them in the Assembly. A district that does not want its LICH Hospital to close or it Library or to allow building in the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Until the NY1 debate the 52AD had to rely on fake campaign mailing done by the same lobbyists who tried to fool them on their ER protection. The rest of the media and even the community leaders have block the voters of the Biviano district from leading the truth of the take over of their community by a new Tammany Hall made up of lobbyists and the special interests they work for. This new machine unlike the old does not server the people but uses the voters to make money by pushing developments against their interests.* NY1 and Their Corrupt Lobbyists Wise Guys
WFP Has Tuned Campaign Funding Into Anything Goes and Fake Campaign Mailings into An Art
NY1 allowed Biviano to changed WFP candidate Peter Sikora with Illegally coordinating the mayor's One NY PAC money with his campaign money. The PAC mailing told the community that the emergency room being built by the developer of luxury housing on the site of the closed LICH Hospital with meeting the communities health care needs. Doctors and community leaders have said the mailing are a total lie. While NY1 allowed those charges to be aired over 100 other journalist in the city have opened Biviano's press releases with contained the illegal PAC charges and said nothing. Lobbyists Berlin Rosen Takes Over NYC Government
While NY1 Put Anti-Lobbyists Biviano On the Rest of Main Stream Media Has Remained Silent
The 100 Shameful NYC Journalists
We are left with candidate Sikora answer of the illegal coordination if the One NY PAC and his campaign are wild charges that are not true. Sikora his WFP backer know that nobody will stop or report about their illegal funding during the campaign. The 100 Silent Journalist prove them true. It was the CFB that fined the two council candidates months after the campaign. that used the Advance Group as their campaign manage and received funding from the PAC controlled by Advance NYCLASS. The CFB does not regulate state races. Besides the media not acting on Illegal PAC money in local races the DAs and AG have not said a word either.
The Changing Economic Has Forced the News Media to Abandoned Its Constitutional Role on Informing the Voters to Addicted to Lobbyists and Special Interests to Keep Publishing
Berlin Rosen who represents the mayor's PAC with sent out the misleading ER mailing and is Sikora's campaign manager also is a consultant to the AG, the Brooklyn District Attorney, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio. Berlin Rosen also represents many of the developers like Two Trees that place ads in newspapers. Today was the first time the Brooklyn Daily Eagle who broke the dark money LICH mailing wrote about the Biviano campaign
The Only Ones Who Believe Dadey Is A Good Government Reformer Are the Journalists Who Cover His Bull Shit
A special award for silence has to go to Good Government fake Citizens Union Dick Dadey who lives in the 52AD for saying nothing about the illegal funding.* The Privatization of the Tammany Hall Machine
NYT, NYP and Daily News Silent On Local Impact of Citizens United on the City's Public Financing System
NYT's + Media's Blind Side The NYT has written several times on the national impact of Citizens United but never on the impact of that special interests big money supreme court decision on the 2013 NYC election. The press is focused on a preacher and 4-year-olds, while not reporting on how our city government was mugged by special interests Citizen United PACs and the lobbyists political consultants who do their bidding in the last election. Have these PACs made NYC government worse (if that is possible)? Have these PACs and lobbyist consultants committed crimes? stay tuned.

Holtzman Should Give the City Her Lobbying Fees From From the Corrupt Citytime
Ms. Holtzman's lobbying firm was paid $120,000 in 2009, $90,000 in 2010, and $200,000 in 2011 by SAIC, the maker of CityTime, to lobby New York City politicians in order to keep NYC.gov paying CityTime's huge cost overruns. Eventually, it was estimated that SAIC over-billed New York City by $600 million, and Ms. Holtzman was one of the principal lobbyist being paid to keep that gravy train rolling. Her lobbying firm was paid $410,000 to keep the CityTime gravy train rolling into Ms. Holtzman's station. Holzman lobbied Borough President - Queens, NYC Council Members. Comptroller's Office, Office of Management & Budget (OMB), Office of The Mayor (OTM), Office of the Contract Service. The city's lobbying database shows a small army of former prominent city officials who did work for SAIC and Technodyne. Defense contractor SAIC has retained former City Comptroller Liz Holtzman, Peter Powers, who served as Mayor Giuliani's top deputy Mayor for operations, and Seth Kaye, who worked in both the Giuliani and Bloomberg administrations. Technodyne's lobbyists include former Bloomberg Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications Commissioner Gino Menchini and Agostino Cangemi, who also held key posts in both administrations. National Strategies, the lobbying firm that employs Menchini and Cangemi, says the firm had no role in CityTime and discontinued working "on general business procurement" for Technodyne as soon as the criminal allegations surfaced. (Another Technodyne lobbyist of record, Sal Salamone, was director of the Mayor’s Office of Computer Planning and has worked for SAIC.)
