The Experience of a Republican Running For Queens Assembly By Abe Fuchs

398484_2768903628325_963663312_nOne-time Queens Assembly candidate, Abe Fuchs, discusses the role of religious and ethnic voting blocs in contemporary elections and rebukes one-party dominance in favor of a game changing scenario where change could be brought about through  solidarity in terms of party registration.

Fuchs ran as a Republican against incumbent Assemblywoman Nily Rozic and lost by a wide margin. His on the ground experience set him on a course to enroll orthodox Republicans and would-be Republicans into the Democratic Party to remain competitive while maximizing their voice in the hopes of swaying the results of Democratic primary elections.

Let us know how it goes Abe!

Former Assembly Candidate Defends Nutcase Who Decapitated Mom


He didn’t do it.

Jerry Iannece is American as apple pie and a well-respected figure throughout the community as well as in political circles. Though he was crushed in his last bid for a State Assembly seat by newcomer Nily Rozic, Iannece is still making headlines as the criminal defense attorney for Bahsid McLean, 23, who allegedly dismembered his mom and wore a garbage bag to court.

According to prosecutors, McLean stabbed his mother to death and then chopped up the body in an unsuccessful attempt to cover up the horrific crime.

While donning a trash bag in the courtroom, McLean wildly proclaimed his innocence.

“He kept urinating on himself,” said defense lawyer Jerry Iannece, who must have been so disgusted, he didn’t even challenge a judge’s order to remand the suspect, according to the Post.

The twisted caper doesn’t end there. McLean allegedly took photos with his cell phone of him holding his mother’s decapitated head.

McLean was charged with second-degree murder, unlawful dissection of a human body and hindering prosecution.

A Non-profit Caught Electioneering

Bragg Blog’s post on the Bayside Hills Civic Association:

Jerry Iannece’s Non-Profit Explicilty Promotes Candidacy, Questions Voting For Jewish Opponent

Take a look at this screen shot from the Bayside Hills Civic Association website, a non-profit.

Not only is the group explicitly promoting the electoral prospects of its president, Assembly candidate Jerry Iannence (which is a definite no-no for a nonprofit), but it also offers the following poll question, asking “How should an American decide on a candidate?”

“Pick the candidate with the most experience and a long record of service to the community” or “Pick the candidate whose ethnicity is the same as yours, even if she or he is not qualified to hold office.”

Iannece is Italian-American, while his opponent, former Assembly staffer Nily Rozic is originally from Israel (before moving to Argentina, then Queens.) Like her predecessor, Assemblyman Rory Lancman, who gave up the seat to run for Congress, she is Jewish.

It’s a heavily Jewish district, and clearly that poll question is quite inappropriate. I’m still awaiting comment from Iannece’s campaign, though it’s kind of late at night, and I just asked. Certainly, it’s not clear who wrote this.

The offensive question has now been taken down, thoughthere’s still plenty on the website explicitly promoting Iannece.

Rozic files exploratory committee for AD25

Nily Rozic is thinking about running for Rory Lancman’s state Assembly seat.

From the Queens Tribune:  Rozic, 26, recently opened an exploratory committee and will contend against Iannece and other candidates that are sure to surface in a district that runs horizontally from south Flushing to the Douglaston Little Neck area. She took a leave of absence from Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh’s office (D-Manhattan), where she served as chief of staff. A Fresh Meadows resident that was born in Jerusalem, Rozic has been a member of CB 8 for the past year, sitting on three committees: land use, education and transportation. Unlike Iannece, who ran in a 2009 City Council primary, Rozic has not run for office before.

 “We need to focus on getting more people involved in government, including young people and immigrants. Women are severely underrepresented in state government,” she said.
