Auberger & Parrinello ... and Payback?

   
  "Do Two Rahns Make A Right?"

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that John Parrinello appears to be a common denominator, though on  the sidelines, during many of the scandals that have rocked Supervisor Auberger's administration in the Town of Greece over the last few years? Currently, it looks to be more than mere coincidence that Parrinello is representing Bob Neusatz at a time when Mr. Neusatz appears to have no need for a criminal defense lawyer to begin with. Or does he ... ? Maybe he will sue Auberger in the weeks ahead ... stay tuned ...

The scandal involving John Auberger's affair with Monica Neusatz comes virtually on the heels of the end of the court case against Merritt Rahn's son, Chad. In fact, only last week sentences were handed out to Frank Arena and Matt Montrois, two men central to the case against Chad Rahn. Originally, Chad Rahn himself was also represented by Parrinello, just as his dad had been during the investigation and trial that ended with the senior Rahn serving prison time. Chad's case, like dad's was linked to the Greece PD.

What does all of this mean? Someone asked in a comment left on this BLOG earlier on Monday, "Do two Rahns make a right?" I don't think so, but that's just my gut feeling. More likely is that Bob Lonsberry's prediction in April of 2009 was accurate afterall: "The last time I spoke to Merritt Rahn, he told me that if he went down, he was taking John Auberger with him." I think we may be seeing that now. Stay tuned ...

All in all this is a pretty interesting situation. Affairs have been unfortunately, common in politics since forever. Ironically, the woman Auberger chose ended up murdered.

Did the son do it because he knew the mother was having an affair? We may never know, but it is probably a solid possibility. I don't think it came out at first because as Baxter said, it was not germane to the case. News releases and stoires may indicate the reasons for a murder, but a third party like Auberger is rarely named.

I doubt there is any connection to Rahn. That possibility seems spurious to me.

Ultimately though, I am a Republican and it is painfully obvious Auberger needs to go away yesterday. Nothing he has been involved in is moral, ethical, and sometimes even legal. After everything that has gone on in Greece and Monroe County, it is unbelievable people like Auberger and Maggie Brooks are still employed. Maybe this will be the beginning of the end for them.

Merritt Rahn was put on trial and humiliated and convicted.
In this morning's paper Joseph Loszynski approved of the "independent observer" in the Auberger interrogation citing "civilian oversight of the (Greece) Police Department".
If there is that civilian oversight, why was Merritt Rahn alone in the conviction for hiring Pignato? Where was that "oversight" during all of the cover-ups brought to light in the Pignato and Nick Joseph trials?
If Auberger was responsible for the actions (civilian oversight) of the police department, why didn't Loszynski find him responsible? Culpable? Malfeasance?
There is more corruption in Greece town hall.
And Scats you are right about this connection. Remember Melville's quote that starts "from hell's heart...."?

SCATS said...

To 1:31AM ~~ I agree with EVERYTHING you say ... aside from the comment about how it is a "spurious connection to Rahn." Parrinello was even "on the scene in April 2009 while defending Roderick Scott when the good ole boys of GPD with Rahn still at the helm tried to pin him with a murder to divert attention away from GPD's internal meltdown.

To 6:57AM ~~ I'm positive the corruption at Greece Town Hall is still there, and Auberger still occupies the helm! And as Chief Todd recently told the NGN group while marking his first anniversary, Mr. Auberger STILL DOES ALL OF THE HIRING just as he did when Pignato came onboard ;)

Direct quotes from the Q & A booklet distributed at the 2009 Candidates' Night @ FBBC:

Q: "What do you believe is the responsibility of an elected official to provide moral leadership in public and private life?"
A (Auberger): "It is my goal as an elected official to reflect the values of the people I represent... I will strive to continue to reflect the values in all aspects of Town Government."
What a put down to the community! Does he believe he is "reflecting the values of the people" by sleeping with another man's wife? I don't care if he thought they had an "open relationship" or not! How do Greece voters make the same mistake over and over?!?!

SCATS said...

To 9:12AM ~~ And he reflects those values by daring to invoke Jesus' name before every Town Board meeting, regardless cost to taxpayers for defending his hiss sorry arse.

I think Todd Baxter has been spot on in the two interviews I heard.
Auberger put him in a tough spot and Todd handled it pretty darn good given the politics of Greece.

I do NOT think Auberger should be forced to step down, at least not right now. Lets see first if that son does go to trial this summer. That may shake out more noise.

In the mean time I am hoping the republican party takes a good look at Todd Baxter as a potential replacement. He (Baxter) still needs at least a few more months leadership skills.

If Auberger were forced to step down right now, it would play right into the hands of those broom-sweeping Democrates. And that is not what I want to see to demonstrate his character and happen.

Parinello did not represent Chad more than a week after Chad was charged.
As for Parinello representing Mr. Neusatz to sue Augie down the road; What will he be able to sue for,(Adultery)?
It does seem that Mr. Parinello does have a personal vendeta against Mr. Auberger but I don't see any relationship that Meritt Rahn had anything to do with this.
I believe that Auberger is just a crooked little wrench of a man who plays both sides of the law and no matter what, his name will come up when there is something bad or deceitful in Greece.
Auberger should of resigned after the Rahn trial but made the decision not too, now maybe the people of Greece will ban together and give him no options.

What does an open marriage mean anyways? Did Augie suspect that her husband would approve and maybe watch someday? Was Augie hoping for a 3-way? Is this what a open marriage means? I guess if my marriage was open, it would mean the door is open if you want to leave but if you are staying then we will be open and be honest to each other. Is Augie idea of an open marriage a little twisted or what?

He probably invokes Jesus' name in many of his dalliances. And the father and the holy ghost too.
But it's ok because he is a republican and he is not married. Despite the fact that he was having the affair with a "sort of" married woman while he was having a long term committed relationship with another woman.

SCATS said...

To 10:37AM ~~ What was in your coffee? You think Baxter should go into politics as a Rep. candidate? I have no idea what your last sentence was intended to convey, and sadly, I doubt that you do either.

SCATS said...

To 12:22PM ~~ After that first week, then Matthew Parrinello represented him for awhile. Same difference, same law firm ;) I forget the charge, but loss of a spouse in so many words could be used as the basis for a lawsuit. As for the Rahns, the timing of a second Rahn & his cronies cases all ending in convictions with jail time just days before the crapple hit the fan at the Breakfast Buzz seems pretty interesting to me. Don't forget, JP has used early morning talk radio to his advantage throughout the GPD problem and on behalf of Roderick Scott as well as Merritt Rahn.

SCATS said...

To 12:31PM ~~ The idea that Auberger thought she was in an open marriage is absolutely laughable! How does anyone have an intimate relationship for more than a year and not find out the other person is committing adultery? His admission that he had only ever been to their house for a campaign stop tells me he knew full well she was CHEATING on hubby WITH HIM!

To 12:50PM ~~ He should keep his "Oh Gods" in the bedroom like any other man with his lack of a moral compass would.

Personally, I can't for the life of me see how Auberger would be "appealing" to all of these women he's cheated with ... ack!

Don’t get me wrong… my 9:12am comment wasn’t meant to sound “holier than thou.” If Auberger invokes Jesus’ name at board meetings, that’s fine with me. Jesus died for each and every one of us because we are ALL sinners and in need of His sacrificial atonement. What gets me is how Auberger and his party play the “holier than thou” card and the silLEE voters fall for it over and over. I blame the sheeple of Greece more than anyone else.

Is Auberger still involved with Joannie from assessment?

If so he is certainly very pious!!

Scats great point on only being to the house for campaign calls lol. He knows he was with a married woman. WHich was her business and she was not an elected official. It is sad that in this families time of need he his knee deep in it.

Pope John's nose isn't the only part of his body that grows bigger. And then he has the gall to say a prayer at each town board meeting. What a hypocrite and loser. Him, Eric Massa, and Chris Lee are the three stooges of Monroe county (if there were 4 stooges, Alessi would be the 4th).

Throw in our BOE and we are the embarrassment of the nation. What a joke

Loszynski should be investigated and charged with the list of others he protected, why did he allow his report to be censored so much. We should get a refund because he delivered a defective product to us the tax payers. He knew how bad things were at the top, but he wanted to play who wants to be a millionaire.

Joanie from Assessment is TOAST. Seems she got her kid hired by the Town, took a chunk out of Hairburger's pocket and strutted off into the sunset.

Da Hairburger sure got nervous when Mikey the acting Assessor pointed out the TownHall phone system kept records of calls made from office to office. Gee, I wonder why?

Now don't be picking on the Hairburger, after all he does get up early every morning and go to church.

Da Hairburger appears to be quite a swordsman for somebody with his hairline. He termlimits out after this term, and because he pissed Maggie off he will not go to the Water Authority. Perhaps BigBadJohn will have a second career doing Sr Citizen porn.

was all of Auberger's phone calls to the deased made from the Town Hall phones or his Town owned cell phone?
If so at least he could be charged with theft of services could he not.
Also if this went on during work hours he should forfeit the pay for those hours. This would save tax payers some money that will fund his nice retirement.
He should have been gone a long time ago. But he dances with the seniors at the parties so he was reelected.

SCATS said...

To 9:21AM ~~ I don't know. I wonder the same thing too. I also wonder if that info is available under FOIL ... hmmmm ...

I guess it does not bother anyone that Augie is an elected official that has clearly violated the law. How does official misconduct sound for starters? I would also say that his history as town supervisor would be good indicator that he is the criminal that got away. Can anyone be that naive that if someone really investigated the town much more would be found. You would probably be able to turn town hall into a prison and keep them all in place, LONG LIVE AUGIE11111111111

SCATS said...

To 9:55PM ~~ Well, it does bother me! I think official misconduct is the tip of the iceberg. Abuse of power and other charges are also in order, if you keep digging.

So what needs to be done to force Augie out of his position?

If anyone knows, please share the information with all of us.

That woman in Batavia was a nobody and she was charged with adultery for the same type of conduct had her face plastered all over the nightly news. I fail to see any difference here. Not stepping up promptly in the first place was gutless and deceitful. Is a charge of Obstructing Governmental Administration appropriate in this case? Chris Lee was forced to resign for a lot less. Just seeing Augberger standing behind the lady who is running for Lee's seat during her announcement sure is not doing her a lot of good right now. Reilich ought to step up and get rid of this guy and his cronies.

SCATS said...

To 2:58PM ~~ What I believe needs to happen is for the DEMOCRATS to make this an issue. They haven't. Why haven't they?? That is the question of the hour. I don't think they have any thoughtful coordination among the group in Greece. They are up to their eyeballs with internal maneuvering, infighting and other petty stuff to ever win the war.
