What do we really know about Tony Avella?

Remember when Tony Avella had no problem denouncing IE’s last year? Well guess what? He’s a hypocrite.

If you recall back to the Council elections, Tony Avella went on multiple tirades about independent expenditures in a race he had nothing to do with. In fact, he went on multiple tirades against Paul Vallone for independent mailers he did not approve of. So what’s the big deal?

Now the shoe is on the other foot — and all of a sudden — Tony Avella doesn’t seem to mind about independent expenditures, this time he’s been silent. See for yourself with this IE by the New York League of Conservation Voters which graced the door handles of hundreds of Democrats around the district:

TonyAvellaLiar

Avella likes IE’s when they support him.

Notice this lovely door hanger with Tony Avella standing next to the duck. What you don’t see is the deception Tony Avella is trying to pull over our eyes.This is the same type of independent expenditure Avella openly and publicly denounced.

So this year is different? Why is it always do as I say, not as I do with Tony Avella? Is it because he’s a dishonest bigot?

No offense to the NYLCV, but don’t they read the news? This is the same type of hypocrisy we’ve witnessed over and over with Tony Avella. His duplicity makes a mockery out of any self-respecting voter. We’ve had enough. Have you?

Bloomberg Reveals Secret Plan To Trump Bill de Blasio

Mayor+Bloomberg

Did you really think Bloomberg would sit on sidelines while his legacy gets trounced? Picture from the Village Voice.

There is only one winning political party in NYC, the money party and Bill de Blasio crossed it.

According to whispers from an inner-circle Bloomberg loyalist, Mayor Bloomberg is so infuriated with Bill de Blasio for trouncing his legacy by running a smear campaign as the anti-Bloomberg candidate – and achieving high levels of success while doing so – that he decided to dig deep in his own pockets by bankrolling an independent expenditure with upwards of $20 million of his own money to assist Joe Lhota on the road to victory.

Could this be the turning point in the campaign?

The source, who for years built strong personal relations with Bloomberg, said that Bloomberg’s ego can’t take the de Blasio beating and political embarrassment without him standing up and fighting back.

If the mayor can’t do it in the press or in debates, he’ll do it the only way he knows how, his wallet.
