Simon's Lies Cannot Be Justified
While I'll be the first one to admit Lew Simon has done well for the community, that is not at issue. What is at issue is the fact that he jumped in bed with his Democratic miscreant buddies and was willing to foment lies. Obviously, for Simon, politics trumps the overall good of the community. Now, to the lawyer that responded to my letter (I wrote it personally to you, Editor, but I guess it made good copy).
Since when, Mr. Attorney, does that make it right? Justify Simon's ac - tions. Despite the fact that Democrats outnumber Republicans 3-1, why did he have to lie? What did Frankie-boy promise this useful idiot? Had Simon had any character or dignity he would not be a party to this devious scheme that backfired in an 18 percent landslide for Councilman Ulrich. Hellllooo Mondale! Probably the same promise Simon got from Malcolm Smith. So much for that trip to Albany.
I can tell you, if that was a Con - servative that tried to pull that crap, this paper would implode and you, Mr. Barrister would no doubt be the first one in line to sign up at the ACLU to tirelessly defend terrorists, crooks (ACORN, SEIU, Working Families Party and the rest of the zombies that make up George Soros' 'dawn of the dead' crew) and freaks, if you are not already a card-carrying member. The only place that that liberal lack of rationality flies is with people that barely have two brain cells to rub together. Between the trial lawyers and the teachers union, you 5th columnist, are doing a good job of dumbing down our government schooled kids while simultaneously suing the crap out of us.
So do us a favor Mr. Lawyer, don't go away mad. Just go away.
For the record, I am not affiliated with nor employed by Councilman Ul - rich. In other words, I am not a hack. What's your deal Counselor?
