Auberger Back On Stand Today

Testimony Moves To Pignato's Hiring
Auberger can't recall most of the details

Berkeley Brean Reports: Parrinello is beside himself about Auberger's lack of recall around the hiring of Gary Pignato.

"The incredible part about Auberger's testimony is his complete failure to recollect dates, times, issues. It's a continuation of yesterday, with respect to his lack of memory." ~~ John Parrinello

Over the course of his testimony the last two days, Auberger has responded "I don't remember" or "I don't recall" more than a hundreds times.

 Berkeley Brean asks Parrinello about his tough style in court: "I have a duty to defend my client. If I piss off judge, jury and DA, I don't give a crap!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Poppycock counter adds one more: “That is absolutely ridiculous and poppycock.” ~~ Parrinello regarding Doorley's argument that JP should be recused (STORY)

SCATS ~~ As I said before, JP is just doing his job. He does it VERY well, too ;) Maybe that's a talent he & I share :D

Can Auberger be removed on grounds of mental incompetency?

Obviously a man with serious medical issues.

To 3:38PM ~~ Good question! Sadly, the sheeple of Greece fear taking him to task on anything, even in the ballot box.

The Governor of the state can remove a town supervisor. In this case the least that should happen is Auberger should be ordered to have a complete physical. Dementia maybe setting in.

To 4:02PM ~~ So then, we have to rely upon a legally blind Gov. to remove a potentially senile Supervisor? ONLY IN NEW YORK!

I'd like to post comments here but I notice you keep changing what opinions from people you will and won't allow. Aside from the name calling and bullying (which makes sense), what else do you not allow so I'm not wasting my time. Thank you.

SCATS said...

To 5:08PM ~~ Where are you seeing this change? All opinions are allowed. Debate is good. If you've been watching things as carefully as you say, then you already understand the rules.

Ok good. So as long as I don't call people names or bully other people, my comments will get posted, right? thanks for responding so quick.

To 5:31PM ~~ Putting words into my mouth usually won't help you. Feel free to post. I will moderate as I've always done. It's so interesting that this kind of discussion only happens when the Republicans in Greece are feeling the heat ;)

I firmly believe that people called as witnesses are counseled by their own lawyers to NOT review any documents and NOT consult calendars and pretty much NOT avail themselves anything that could help clear up their cloudy memory. Calendars, email etc should be allowed to be requested, handed over and brought into evidence. I don't know if they can be or not in this case but they should be!

SCATS said...

To 6:09PM ~~ In this case, Auberger had to have had SOME recall of past events given that Loszynski wrote a lengthy report that would touch on at least portions of the cases against Rahn. I'm certain Auberger didn't decide to not read that report, since his hiring practices led to this situation. Auberger admitted last year that HE HAD FINAL AUTHORITY over ALL hiring done in the Town of Greece.

I think he "forgot" he hired Loszynski, and I think he "forgot" that he is supposed to be a "supervisor", and I think he "forgot" that he's supposed to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

P O P P Y C O C K J O H N N I E !

Too bad he can't seem to forget he was elected. That would be a plus for all the people in this town!

"Alzheimers Auberger" - Double A Johnnie!

SCATS said...

To 7:28PM ~~ Most importantly, it appears Auberger has "forgotten" to update the public on the investigation and that he promised to share Loszynski's report with the community.

Did anyone see the video of him coming out of the courtroom today? Those beady eyes were darting about as he wandered back and forth trying to avoid cameras and reporters. Looks like he recalls how to duck all the tough questions very well ;)

Nobody in recorded history ever went down on Perjury for not remembering!

Subpoening his notes and diarys, there are 2 problems, it might be work product, and you have to know what notes he made.

Hairburger must have got a 4.0 in Sniveling Twitt 1.01. Sort of interesting how a septigenarian lawyer can remember his case, and stay on point and a 50somethng Stupidvisor can't remember a damn thing. May be Joanne was too hard on his mental faculties. That's it, Joanne took the notes while Hairburger was in his private bathroom.

He sure as hell went bonkers back during the assessor case when he learned the phone system at Town Hall maintained a log of calls, including internal calls. Oh, nevermind, the public ain't supposed to know about that.

SCATS said...

To 8:54PM ~~ Very true about the perjury aspect! You make an excellent point about the age differences too. Maybe Uncle Auggie really does have a health issue ...

Skip beaver is on linkedin and has as his resume from Greece for 13 years that he was in charge of keeping documents. Why wasn't he subpoenaed since he was on the job during those years? Also he is the one that gave the new gun to rahn.

Documents can be subpoenaed even if they are work related. Only Freedom of information has that restriction. Even FOIL can get the duty roster of the police officers.

And if a person says they do not recall or remember and they are lying when they say that, they are committing perjury. That lying can be proved if another person testifies that they very clearly knew the information. Such as he discussed it with the person that subbed for rahn when he was on his medical leave. Or a close friend can say that he admitted he was told to have complete memory loss. We all know he is not being truthful and he should resign.
