WNY Dem to fundraise in NYC


A Rochester-area state Senate candidate will head downstate to raise money in a key race that could help decide control of the chamber.

Ted O’Brien, a Democratic Monroe County legislator facing Assemblyman Sean Hanna for a western New York Senate seat, will host a fundraiser in Manhattan later this month as he seeks to replace retiring Sen. James Alesi, R-Perinton, Monroe County. The event will feature an appearance from Manhattan Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat.

The Hanna/O’Brien race is one of a handful being closely contested by both Democrats and Republicans, along with districts in the Buffalo area, the Hudson Valley and New York City’s outer boroughs. Republicans currently hold a 33-29 edge in the Senate, and a 63rd seat is in play this election cycle.

Here’s the fundraiser invitation from Sen. Michael Gianaris, a Queens Democrat heading up his conference’s re-election efforts:

“Dear Friend,

I hope you are well and that you were able to enjoy a relaxing end to the summer. Here at the DSCC, our campaigns are in full swing and I’m emailing today about one state senate candidate in particular, Ted O’Brien.

As the Democratic Leader of the Monroe County Legislature, Ted is running for the 55th Senate District on a record of reducing the tax burden on middle class families, giving small businesses the tools they need for job creation and protecting the rights of workers and women across New York.

That is why on Thursday, September 27th, I am pleased to join special guest Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney in NYC for a reception in support of Ted’s campaign. The details are:

Date: Thursday, September 27, 2012
Time: 5:30PM-7:30PM

  1. Don’t trust Dyke Gainaris. Athens Archbishop Christodoulos said we deserved 9/11 (ISBN 960-252-007-8). On the Thursday before Easter Greeks chant pogrom inciting Beatitudes against “godslaying lawless Jews”in Greek, but change it to “Assemby of Jews” in English. They removed American Archbishop Iakovos because he was too American and Jerusalem Patriarch Irineos because he was too friendly with Israelis. Old witches who used to work at diners until they dropped now slip “Elder Protocols” and other terror claptrap in the pews. When I was growing up priests, would bathe, shave, wear pants – Robed, bearded, stovetopped priest is terror sympathist by definition. Greece was only euronation not to vote for 1947 Israel creation. In such time of war, we should insist that any public assembly of more than ten mandatorily be only in English! These heathen necromantic iconolaters have the nerve to ban Psalm 150 organs? If the Greek government did an Enron with its own books, and Greeks Trojan Horse their Greek taxes, what makes you think they pay the IRS? They go to Greece annually to tend their undisclosed accounts on soviet Cyprus. Notice the soviet spy money laundered Metsos disappeared with Cyprus complicity? Did Illinois Giannoulias, Florida’s Crist, California’s Angelides and New York’s Gianaris apply Greek budgeting techniques like Sarbanes Oxen? Greek Ponzi fourfold Eurodefecit boasts Trojan Horse Perfidy, Klephth Brigandage. Upset that industrious Albanians invaded their lazy, gungrabbing, babykilling homeland, the soviet-churched Greeks vindictively hire, house and promote illegals. As quakes render their homes disposable, Greeks are oblivious to the very concept of maintenance. Instead of blaming environmetalists for fires and socialists for deficits, jealousy driven soviet faith seeks scapegoats. Olympia Snowjob supports Obamacare and abortion because of her gangreen patriarch (Is Orthodox Christianity progressive? Michelle Boorstein Washington Post 11-4-09 Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew spoke about the spiritual imperative for nonviolence, universal health care and reducing consumption to help the environment.) Ancient Greeks reduced consumption to help the environment through infanticide and sodomy. Palamite Zealotes massacred Thessalonian aristocracy in preparation for Cantacuzene usurpation via hesychast hyperventilatory hallucination. This soviet socialism motivated Anatolian farmers to embrace Turks in the 1400s to avoid redistributative taxation and then for liberated mainlanders to migrate to Smyrna in the 1800s.
