Parrinello Could Be A Material Witness In GPD Scandal

Claims he met secretly with Auberger & Pignato in 2002 when Auberger hired Pignato

“I'm going to hire you because John Parrinello says I should." ~~ Auberger to Pignato (according to Parrinello)

"Is Supervisor Auberger under investigation as part of this criminal complaint?" ~~ Atty. Larry Kasparek

“I don’t want to start wild speculation. We’re looking for any information we can get.” ~~ DA Mike Green

Parrinello Press Release

WHEC obtains copy of 2002 memo from Chief Rahn regarding Pignato's background check

Rahn ~~ “an inordinate amount of time was spent completing this investigation and tracking down all the rumors that have been floating around about Pignato ... I see no reason why we should not hire him and in fact, I would recommend him for the next opening.”

“Either John Auburger knew what was going on ahead of time and he's part of the corruption, or he didn't and he's ignorant and inept. In either case, he has to go." ~~ Dan Maloney, Supervisor candidate (Dem)

SCATS ~~ I especially liked the part of the video where Maloney suggested he could get to the bottom of the entire GPD investigation for just $1 ... by buying a mirror at the Dollar Store and asking Auberger to look into it! Let's ALL send Auberger a mirror :)

Could Scats please make us a chart ....like a truth table in beginning algebra! You know if P then Q ...If P is lying then A is ok but if P is telling the truth then A should find another job. It is confusing.

Auberger should go the way of Bill Mackin and retire, immediately!

Go to the next town board meeting (this tuesday) and bring a mirror.

SCATS said...

To 7:37PM ~~ Sorry, but I'm not Ross Perot. No charts for you ... ;)

To 7:53PM ~~ Excellent idea! I think I may promote doing that :)

What a choice we have in Greece: The loud-mouthed Maloney or the evasive Auburger.

Are there any viable independents available?!

Possibly. There's a Florida resident with New York political aspirations. 'no real experience to offer, but lots of money to throw around. They may want to rename a building or a road or something, though. "One Vince Toffany" is probably due for a change, anyway.

Parrinello has played with the big boys in the political arena for years. You may not like his tactics but the man is not dumb. And why would he lie about our Stupidvisor meeting with him and PIGnato in Parrinello's office?? If Augberger thinks Parrinello is going to let his client RAHN go down alone and take the blame for the whole GPD mess, the our Stupidvisor lives in a fairy tale land.

I just hope the GPD and ROB-U-TRADE debacle will be in the news on a daily basis all the way to November. What a way to send a message to our dysfunctional state representatives than to vote all our local incumbants out! And it is sooooooo deserved!

Maloney seems good on the tv. Should he let the supervisor off easily?

What do you want from politicians polite playtime?

Personally my favorite quote is in today's paper Auberger says he is just one vote out of five on the town board who voted to hire Pignato, and therefore isn't responsible for hiring.

The reporter fails to get the hilarity of this remark. If they were allowed to laugh the rubber stamp board would get the joke too.

A good erproter might have pointed out (or as a question) that htere have been no opposing votes on teh town baord for anything Auberger wants.

Watch dog or lap dog?

Maloney needs to tone it down on TV. He sounds like a dummy.

It might be nice if he had some ideas to prevent this type of thing happening again = something other than Auberger has to go = something.

I disagree he sounds fine. Do yu have some kind of prejudice against working class types?

Trowbridge is retiring in the next day or two and will spill the beans.

Greece residents are certifiable. They complain that the Supervisor doesn't talk, and uses his mouthpiece "I am him" to do his talking. They they complain when Maloney speaks up? Obvious desperate republican tactic. Get used to calling him Mr. Supervisor.

Let's just call it now. Maloney wins. And deservedly so. No more GOP BS. The end of the reign of terror is in sight.

SCATS said...

To 6:22PM ~~ Actually, it's called venting and it's an emotionally healthy coping mechanism. God knows Greece residents NEED TO COPE these days!

6:22 - typical "vote for this guy just because he's not the other guy." Sorry but Maloney is gonna have to do a lot more than call a press conference everytime some new bad news comes out. So far there's no details on what he'd actually do, just that he's not Auberger. And just cuz he says he won't hire all his union buddies if elected doesn't mean it won't happen if he is. Has he even said he won't hire all his car union buddies for jobs they're not qualified for if he's elected? Isn't Delphi going bankrupt with GM?

In Merritt Rahn's memo there is a lower case initial next to his MR which is "cvb" I'll bet that cvb knows a heck of a lot about what went on. That is the person that typed the memo and included the "enclosure" which is the background packet.

6:22 - You need to get out more :)

Or at least stay current on the issues!

That's just PERFECT!
Mr Union Official Maloney who undoubtedly supports American workers 110% advocates buying offshore mirrors at the Dollar Store.

Definitely shows Dan to be a complete bullcrap spewer. Do as I say, not as I do. I'm better than Hairburger because I ain't him. Change You Can Count On, just call me Hopey McChange Jr.

How's the Obama Change working at your house? Can you handle more of it?

SCATS said...

To 2:52PM ~~ I like how you quoted ME then used it to snipe at Maloney. Methinks a lot of folks of the Republican persuasion are upset with SCATS for suggesting taking mirrors to the Tuesday night Town Board meeting. Oh well, too bad. I hear the media has been asking questions about it ;)

Anonymous said...

SCATS I'll be more than happy to provide you with a genuine US made parabolic mirror to take to the meeting and focus additional brightness on the hairburger.

DISCLAIMER: The mirror may or may not have been made by a Union worker, and may contain mercury. Posession of a mirror at a Town Board meeting while under the influence of catnip may be a criminal offense if HairBurger didn't learn from Rogie's mistake having the RPD cop arrested.
Driving under the influence of catnip is NOT a crime in NY.

REMEMBER: A politician acting in his or her elected capacity may not bring harassment charges against a citizen unless there is physical assault. Feel free to shout back at the empty BobbleHead Town Board© they do not hold the same protection Hopey McChange does when a disturbance is created in their presence.

SCATS said...

To 7:53PM ~~ I'm proud to announce that I'm on "the patch" and hopefully, I've kicked the catnip habit. MEOW :)

Thanks for the laugh :)
