A new low for Kennedy
When Tim Kennedy ran for State Senate a few years back against Jack Quinn II, his campaign slogan was "Change Albany". Anyone who has followed his actions since then, know this was merely an empty slogan. He has been anything but a breath of fresh air when it comes to any type of reform.
Fast forward to 2013. Little Timmy is now charging a small group of Albany lobbyists a minimum of $1,000 apiece to attend his fundraiser tonight. So much for changing the culture of Albany. Even the lobbyists, lower than the cockroach on nature's food chain, are crying foul about how much Kennedy is charging to sell his influence...
How is it that a lawmaker who has served slightly more than two years and whose Democratic Party conference does not control the Senate is able to charge $1,000 for his fundraiser?
It was a question not lost last week on some lobbyists who got the Kennedy fundraiser invitation.
“It’s crazy,” one lobbyist said of the price tag for the Kennedy event at 74 State, which is located just a couple blocks below the Capitol.
I hope this serves as a wake up call for those of you still dumb enough to support the likes of Tim Kennedy. He clearly does not represent the average resident of the district. He now is completely bought and paid for by the special interest groups of Albany and Manhattan. More from the article...
In his invitation, Kennedy gives lobbyists and special-interest group representatives an online donation option – with Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards accepted – if they can’t attend tonight’s fundraiser.
Tighten the noose. He needs to go. I've been telling people for years: Kennedy would be sweeping floors at WalMart if he hadn't prostituted himself to Brian Higgins from the age of 17. He brings nothing to the table. He's incapable of making any decisions himself and is merely a puppet for a corrupt group of career politicians. I encourage you to read the attached Buffalo News link and ask yourself, what kind of "change" is Tim really bringing to Albany?
The money Kennedy takes in from the corrupt lobbyists will then be used the last month of next year's campaign to send out slick, expensive fliers daily in your mailbox. They will have nice pictures and will talk about how many jobs Timmy has created. Let me be the first to tell you: Kennedy has never created a single job and if you fall for his nonsense, you deserve to have someone as corrupt as him as your representative.
