Politiks iz eezi

22 Jul

The story so far:

Registered Conservative Don Hobel circulated Democratic nominating petitions to challenge George Maziarz, a Republican, in the 62nd Senate District. Hobel dropped out and has been replaced on the (D) line by registered Republican Brian Grear.

However, Hobel will still challenge Maziarz in a primary on the Conservative line, and Grear will still challenge Maziarz in a primary on the Republican line.

Heads exploding throughout Niagara County declined to comment on the record, citing the sensitivity of these events, but speaking on the condition of anonymity, they said, “BOOM!”

    Backroom deals in Niagara politics? I’m shocked and dismayed.

    From the Buffalo News, July 15th:

    “Hobel, 78, a registered Conservative from Wheatfield, said the deal was in the cards from the time he agreed to have his name placed on Democratic nominating petitions for the Senate seat held by 13-year Republican incumbent George D. Maziarz.”

    And this…

    “Hobel said the deal was that he would allow his name to be used as the Democratic nominee as long as Democratic operatives circulated Conservative petitions for him, too. That was done.”
