Dick Dadey ridden hard and put away wet

I can't believe I actually agree with Rich Assonfire or Azzopardi.

Dick Dadey and his fragile ego are hypocrites.  Truer words were never spoken.

That Dadey is upset that the governor's people have not spoken to him about ethics reform is priceless.

Dick they've been giving you, Blair and the rest of the goo goos a mercy reach around for years and now you are upset that you have to jerk yourself off?  Too funny.   Look at the bright side at least this year when it comes to the goo goos and ethics reform the pleasure given will equal the pleasure received.

It's not like you were ever relevant when it came to changing ethics in NY government

I've ridiculed Dick for years  here are some of my favorites:

But I don't remember seeing Dick at JJOKE meetings.  Too busy covering for the Gov in the old days when Steve Cohen was on his board.

JJOKE back in the slow lane

March 2, 2017 -  3993 registrations had been filed for 2017 and 3587 were still being processed which means 406 had been approved.  406 in over 2 months.  That's about 10 a day.

 March 3, 2017 - 3999 registrations had been filed and 3575 were still being processed which means 424 had been approved.  That's 18 registrations approved March 3, 2017.

 March 6 - 4013 registrations had been filed and 3549 were still being processed which means 464 had been approved.  That's 40 registrations approved March 6.

 March 7, 2017 -  4017 registrations had been filed and 3532 were still being processed which means 485 had been approved.  That's 21 registrations approved March 7.

March 8, 2017 - 4021 registrations had been filed and  3512 were still being processed which means  509 had been approved.  That's  24 registrations approved March 8.

 March 9, 2017 - 4030 registrations had been filed and  3476 were still being processed which means  554 had been approved.  That's  45 registrations approved March 9.

 March 10, 2017 - 4041 registrations had been filed and  3458 were still being processed which means  583 had been approved.  That's  29 registrations approved March 10.

 March 13, 2017 - 4051 registrations had been filed and  3429 were still being processed which means  622 had been approved.  That's  39 registrations approved March 13.

March 14, 2017 - 4053 registrations had been filed and  3431 were still being processed which means  622 had been approved.  That's  0 registrations approved March 14.

Today 4075 registrations had been filed and  3431 were still being processed which means  644 had been approved.  That's 22 registrations approved March 15.

22 registrations approved and 22 new registrations filed that's called being stuck in the mud.  At this rate JJOKE will never be finished  that's Agata's idea of job security.

How long can they continue at a snails pace before someone notices that Agata couldn't manage an ice cream stand in the Sahara.  Agata couldn't manage a whorehouse in Spitzers neighborhood.

In a word Agata should be ashamed to take a paycheck.

Today only essential state workers are working.  I'm working so I called JJOKE to see who was in.

No Answer

Agata - not essential - NO SHIT
Levine - not essential - NO SHIT
Monica - not essential - NO SHIT
Pei Pei - not essential - NO SHIT
McClueless - not essential - NO SHIT
JJOKE lawyers - not essential - NO SHIT
JJOKE staff - not essential - NO SHIT
JJOKE - not essential - NO SHIT

Of course tomorrow is a filing deadline do you think JJOKE will extend the deadline as a result of their day off to stay home drink hot chocolate and congratulate themselves on how hard they work?

Me neither that's why I'm working today to get all my clients filings done on time.

I bet I do more filings today than JJOKE processes.

Hell that's no different than when all the not essential JJOKERS actual show up to work.

For the record Today - 4053 registrations had been filed and  3431 were still being processed which means  622 had been approved.  That's  0 registrations approved March 14.

Agata this is exactly the kind of work that can be done remotely.  Do you want me to knock out a couple hundred registrations for you today?

Just say the word and I'll use that access to the system I have and help you out so you don't have to interrupt your sleigh riding time.

And by the way the New York City Lobby Commission was processing registrations today    No backlog in the city.

Who cares that JJOKE doesn't approve registrations?

Anyone that files reports.

You see a backlog (that's too small a term) a logjam (not big enough) a bottleneck (no that's not enough either) a complete failure of the JJOKE registration system effects other disclosure reports as well.

You can't amend registrations until they are approved and yet the statute requires amendments to be made within 10 days of their occurrence.  Had a carryover contract that expired in January and you want to extend it?  Too bad you can't amend to extend until they get around to approving your registration.  Watch for the late fee they will impose.  Register without that comma or ampersand that Amy Nicotera is demanding? Too bad you can't amend until they get around to approving your registration.  Watch for the late fee they will impose.

How about bimonthly reports?  They are due by Wednesday.  You can file them without your registration being approved but they can't be approved until the registration is approved which results in another backlog (that's too small a term) a logjam (not big enough) a bottleneck (no that's not enough either) a complete failure of the JJOKE disclosure reporting system and you guessed it you can't amend to correct any typos or other errors in reporting.  End result a disclosure system that should be available in real time to the public isn't even reliably accurate at any time much less in real time.

Hey Agata it's 2017 even a nut less monkey could do a better job of managing JJOKE.

For the week . . .  a whopping 159 registrations approved     that's for the week not for the morning   the whole week

If Agata ever stops chasing the second floor enemies list we may see all the registrations approved by . . . well at some time.

Record setting day at JJOKE 45 registrations processed

March 2, 2017 -  3993 registrations had been filed for 2017 and 3587 were still being processed which means 406 had been approved.  406 in over 2 months.  That's about 10 a day.

 March 3, 2017 - 3999 registrations had been filed and 3575 were still being processed which means 424 had been approved.  That's 18 registrations approved March 3, 2017.

 March 6 - 4013 registrations had been filed and 3549 were still being processed which means 464 had been approved.  That's 40 registrations approved March 6.

 March 7, 2017 -  4017 registrations had been filed and 3532 were still being processed which means 485 had been approved.  That's 21 registrations approved March 7.

March 8, 2017 - 4021 registrations had been filed and  3512 were still being processed which means  509 had been approved.  That's  24 registrations approved March 8.

As of today  4030 registrations had been filed and  3476 were still being processed which means  554 had been approved.  That's  45 registrations approved today.  A RECORD DAY

Under the Governors press release edict  JJOKE's press department should draft and release a press release proclaiming a record amount of working being performed.

If the regulated community worked at the JJOKE pace we would just be filing registrations for 2010.

Agata keep ignoring how bad a manager you are the backlog may just disappear.  Or you could grand another round of amnesty for all of 2017 and focus on 2018.

JJOKE barely 500 lobbyists served This isn't McDonalds

March 2, 2017 -  3993 registrations had been filed for 2017 and 3587 were still being processed which means 406 had been approved.  406 in over 2 months.  That's about 10 a day.

 March 3, 2017 - 3999 registrations had been filed and 3575 were still being processed which means 424 had been approved.  That's 18 registrations approved March 3, 2017.

 March 6 - 4013 registrations had been filed and 3549 were still being processed which means 464 had been approved.  That's 40 registrations approved March 6.

 March 7, 2017 -  4017 registrations had been filed and 3532 were still being processed which means 485 had been approved.  That's 21 registrations approved March 7.

As of today  4021 registrations had been filed and  3512 were still being processed which means  509 had been approved.  That's  24 registrations approved today.

Seems like we are settling into a routine 20 to 25 registrations a day.  That's about 8 a day or one an hour for each of the 3 ladies processing registrations.   Just think how many they could do if the queen of typo's and ampersands, Amy Nicotera, stopped nitpicking and pitched in to lend a hand. 

I'm sure if Martin and Seth started processing registrations we could up the number to close to 30 a day.

Meanwhile you can't file an amendment until the registration is approved.   What a nightmare Agata has created thru bad, bad management.

But don't worry these are the same people that will be rolling out a new computer filing system . . . someday and are writing new regulations for lobbying.  Anyone want to bet how badly they will screw that up?
