Fred Dicker did a column in which noted drug expert Randy Credico alleged that he was an eye witness to now Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's use of a controlled substance (cocaine).
WOW that is amazing!!!!
Not that Schneiderman used coke after all he is a spoiled rich Jewish kid from Manhattan I'm sure coke is just the tip of his moral dalliances. No what's amazing is that Dicker actually named a source for the earth shattering accusation. And not just a source but noted drug expert Randy Credico (and amateur comedian or do I have that reversed?) did anyone else catch a wiff of the stoner oops Stone as in Roger Stone stench on this one?
And if that was you Roger, much respect, you hit the right issue with such a short time to the election. If you can't find a live boy, dead girl or a whore to put in bed with a public official drugs are a pretty good substitute. Of course some Marion Barry video would have helped but marching out some more experts like Randy (not creditable) Credico to claim first hand knowledge will help. It's not like Schneiderman will bring a liable suit, what between discovery and truth being a perfect defense (and by the way even I am hearing the rumors that there are more Randy Credico's out there).
On the other hand Schneiderman really has nothing to worry about this is the New York State republican party when it comes to losing winnable elections these guys are the coke whores at the debutant ball. Fun to watch but uncomfortable for those that came to dance.
But it did give me a couple of ideas.
First why doesn't Cahill take a drug test and release the results and call on Schneiderman and every other New York Public official to do the same, with the exception of Steve Katz (spark up dude).
I know a reputable test will take longer than the 2 weeks we have left before the election but this is about more than proving Schneiderman's alleged drug usage its about integrity and ethics reform.
Think about it. We can call it ethics reform, we can put JJOKE in charge of it and then we can move on to the next scandal.
And what is it we will do? Why require drug usage disclosure. A form with a lot of definitions and loopholes that elected officials fill out once a year, that JJOKE collects and puts on line at some point and never audits and the media for the most part will ignore, just like the financial disclosure forms we have now.
Problem solved, except for you Mr. Katz.
Or we could legislate random drug tests for our elected officials. Crazy you say? they do it for professional athletes, why is Schneiderman less regulated when it comes to drugs than the backup tight end on the Jets?
Think about it . . . we can find out which politician is smoking weed (Katz) doing bumps of coke (Schneiderman if you believe Credico), dropping acid (the majority in the senate if you can figure out what that means) or popping amyl nitrite (which will open up a whole new type of allegation for JJOKE to investigate).
Speaking of JJOKE investigations or lack thereof the hits continue. I always liked this time of year because the media (who should also be drug tested to explain how lax they have become on ethics scandals) will write meaningless stories on public officials that have kernals of ethics gold in them that JJOKE will completely miss.
For example the DMV commissioner getting a speeding ticket. Who cares I speed all the time. I just got a new 2014 Caddy CTS-V wagon, my own drug of choice (in majestic plum no less) 556 horsepower and a six speed manual box, 0 to 60 in 4 seconds a top speed of 176 and I am doing my best to see how much of an asshole I can be driving it, in fact I did Albany to Rochester this weekend in under 3 hours with a full load of stuff to bring my son at college, but I digress. It's not the speeding ticket that offended me (take the ticket pay the fine) it was the fact that the DMV commissioner used her state paid employee to act as a spokesperson with the media. WTF you got the ticket in your private car on your private time tell the media to fuck off yourself don't use state resources to do it. JJOKE? any interest?
If not how about the state employee that is running a private business out of his state office during working hours? I guarantee if a DMV employee was selling used cars out of his/her state office JJOKE would be all over it but when the governor does an interview to promote his book and uses his state office with the seal of New York on the wall not a peep from JJOKE. Book promotion for a state employee is a tricky thing don't believe me ask Regina Calcaterra. I have a funny feeling though that JJOKE will come up with an exception for this governor.
So until further notice I'll anxiously await those drug tests and hope state employees don't piss on their taxpayer owned desks.
