Dan Halloran to be honored at a fundraiser for EMC

Chris Slattery, Founder and Director of Expectant Mother Care.

Congressional Candidate Dan Halloran will be honored at a fundraiser for Expectant Mother Care, a pro-life organization offering alternatives to abortion and the Knights of Columbus Monsignor Francis J. Dillon Council No. 5872, a Catholic fraternal order.

“We will be honoring Dan for standing up for religious freedom of speech,” according to Elio Forcina, a legal advisor for EMC and a member of the Knights of Columbus.

“When everyone ran including many elected officials who claimed to Be Catholic Dan was one of the few that stood up for the free speech of the faithful,” said Forcina.

Past honorees include Frank Padavan and Serf Maltese.

Proceeds will be split between EMC and the Sisters of Life. Chris Slattery is the executive director of EMC and widely regarded as a five-star general in the pro-life movement in the United States. Slattery is also a strong opponent of Christine Quinn’s left leaning views citing her attempts to suppress religious free speech.

The Sisters of Life is an advocacy organization in conjunction with the Catholic Bishops of the United States, and leaders of many other religious communities, to help object to the Department of Health and Human Services rule for “preventative services,” and the “compromise” announced by President Obama regarding religious liberty, according to their mission statement.

A Clue To County’s Endorsement For Beep?

Brooklyn has the cannoli man, Queens has the kingmaker.

Melinda Katz is holding a fundraiser at Portofino restaurant in Queens where a high ranking democratic official will make a special appearance.

With the 2013 City Council races already heating up, many are wondering who will get the coveted County Endorsement and it just so happens that none other than political boss Rep. Joe Crowley will be the surprise guest at the fundraiser.

Will Crowley make a surprise endorsement?

Katz, a lobbyist, will be locked in a tough battle for control of Borough Hall with heavyweight opponents including City Councilman Peter Vallone, widely considered the frontrunner, Councilman Leroy Comrie, and State Senator Jose Peralta. Both Peralta and Comrie have considerable ties to the party, so at this point the County endorsement is really a toss up.

Even though Crowley will be attending more fundraisers, as reported by Colin Cambell,  we will venture to guess the the real clue is which fundraiser he doesn’t  attend.

George Arzt, the top former campaign advisor for John Liu, has also confirmed attendance.

Below is the invitation in case you decide to go and if you do, please send us video or audio.
