Karma is a Bitch for Volkeristas

27 Oct

Recall, if you will, the fact that Volker Chief of Staff Harry Wahl told a DiPietro supporter the following some time ago:

“I was at a fundraising event one night [May 31st] with my wife Laura and a man who I didn’t know approached me and said ‘I don’t know if you’ve heard but Dave DiPietro is running against [Dale] Volker for State Senate'”, explains Gunner. “I said yeah, I heard something about that.” Gunner said Wahl then told him “If you help DiPietro you will become my enemy. And if your wife supports him you will become my enemy.”

Gunner went on to detail more of the conversation. “He told my wife, ‘If you are friends with Theresa DiPietro you should start saving her moving boxes, because when I am done with her husband, she will be divorced. He will lose his house and his business.’ Then he told us he had the resources available to make it happen.”

Initially he thought it was a joke, but soon found out it was not.

Who was the man that approached him? Gunner said it was Harry Wahl. Wahl is husband of Town of Aurora councilmember Kelly Wahl and an Aurora resident. He is also the Chief of Staff / Director of District Operations for State Senator Dale Volker according to his page on LinkedIn. Wahl was also part of an investigation that led to the guilty plea for intentionally failing to report expenditures of the committee called the “Friends of Terry Yarnall”.

Isn’t that charming? Volker is so proud of the record of FAIL in his three decades in the State Senate, that he and his hacks have resorted to outright threatening those who might oppose him.

Well, karma’s a bitch for overpaid Volker goon Harry Wahl, because evidently his wife recently filed for divorce in Erie County Supreme Court. I guess he ought to, you know, “start saving [his] moving boxes.”

Normally, I wouldn’t give a crap if some two-bit hack’s wife dumped him, but given the intimidation and scare tactics that this Republican pissant engaged in with respect to the DiPietro campaign, it is relevant, and it serves him right.

    Pissant–? Had to look that one up, but now that I know the word I suspect I’ll have lots of opportunities to use it. Thanks for the vocabulary enrichment, Pundit!

    More to the point of the post: they that sow the wind, will reap the whirlwind.

    Harry Wahl is not a thug or two bit political hack or even a pissant. Nor did he ever threaten DiPietro or anyone in his camp, the Gunners included. The only truth in any of these reports is that blog sites like these allow people like those previosuly mentioned, a forum to be tell their fairytale stories, and paint themselves as martyrs.
    The only mistake Harry Wahl made was not suing the pants of these people for fabricating these BS lies! By taking the high road, he became the victim. Sad. But hey, that’s politics, isn’t it. And lastly, he doesn’t need any boxes. Although, it would have been nice if Mrs. Gunner bothered to tell her “good friend” Mrs. DiPietro that she was the one telling people that David is crazy for running for Senate and that Theresa might as well start saving her boxes because she was probably going to leave him when all is said and done. Ahhh, how interesting the truth is and funny that the guilty always cry the loudest when proclaiming their innocence don’t they?

    Hey, “the wife” – everything about Dale Volker, and everything about just about anyone who supports or defends him – sickens me. Dale Volker represents, to my mind, everything that is wrong with Western New York, Albany, and New York politics in general. He has been in the State Senate for 36 years, presiding over an epic decline of what was once a proud and mighty state.

    In 2008, he is vulnerable, and instead of running on his “record”, all he has left to do is to enlist the support of the people financially beholden to him (and his $1 million payroll), and other members of the Republican hackerama elite in WNY to threaten his opponents and smear them to kingdom come.

    David probably was crazy to run for Senate against an unprincipled goon like Dale Volker – and Kathy Konst should probably get her head examined, too. No one should ever be subjected to the kind of gutter bile, lies, and bullying that Volker’s enemies have had to withstand this year. Volker has a job for life, as far as he’s concerned and he will stop at nothing to guarantee that.

    The fact that my tax dollars will go to fund this unmitigated asshole’s pension and health benefits for life, as well as the pensions and permanent benefits for his staff and cronies sickens me. There is not one single, solitary thing that Dale Volker stands for, and his record is pretty much completely bereft of anything that strategically makes New York State a better place to work, live, and raise a family. To the contrary, he has had a hand in destroying this state and this region, preferring to submit to the politics of division and fear.

    I wish him a speedy retirement.

    Um, not trying to pry BP, but is there a member of the NYS State Assembly and Senate in BOTH parties that some, if not ALL of the above paragraph describes to a “T”???

    But if they’re a democrat, the Democratic Sheep of NYS will line up in droves to vote them back in again.

    Until a Savioir arrives—Oh–Spitzer’s already come and gone.
