The supporters of at least one candidate for Mayor of Utica have launched a new blog. And they're already posting the kind of juicy stuff I love.

How interesting it is to look at Tim Julian's financial disclosure reports. Under the individual donaters there are some interesting and familiar names (Democrats). Again, you will find some intersting names under the Corporate donors (i.e. L.B. Security - Dan La Bella President, and Nick La Bella - "The Best Dan Sherrif's" father). Interestingly enough, L.B. Security's donation was just given on 6/14/07.

Rob Palmieri, the one time Democratic mayoral candidate that vowed to run no matter what, and pledged that Julian was terrible for the city, has now given twice to Julian. Most recently on 7/2/07.

Now I'm confused because appearently Dan La Bella has a deal with Roefaro. La Bella is supposed to be the new Public Safety Commissioner if Roefaro gets elected. Is La Bella hedging his bets, or is he just an "unfaithful elected Democrat?"

What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to decieve. There is much more to come about the intertwined financials of the Republicrats. As they say..."Follow the money".

The only suggestion I would make is that the author provide a link to the financial disclosure report in question.

That said, I think it's pretty obvious that our local politicians are more interested in solidifying their positions as members of the political class than actually serving the ideological interests of any party, or most voters for that matter. There's little difference between the Republicans and Democrats when it comes to the cheerfully corrupt, tax-and-spend, get-mine-while-the-gettings-good attitude we see on a daily basis.
