Corrigan Says Jump, Dooley says How High


Charlie Dooley has spent seven years as County Executive. Leading up to this election, how much progress has been made strengthening ethics? None. His administration has spent seven years on the wrong side of the ethical boundaries that everyone else holds themselves to.

For examples, you can take Dooley's practice of tithing county employee salaries for his campaign, trying to steer millions in Federal funds to a campaign staffer, or the endless cloud of corruption surrounding his "consigliere” John Temporiti.

Where there's smoke there's fire, and this is just too much. It's not a misunderstanding or an awkward set of circumstances or a poorly phrased comment, it is a sustained pattern of behavior. This is how Charlie Dooley operates.

    This will be Charlie Dooleys toughest election campaign of his life. No question.

    It will be interesting to see the groups he manages to get for support.

    I wonder if the Unions will stick by Charlie through this campaign, they have plenty to be mad about.
