    Can I use that image next time some defense firm trots him out as an expert witness?

    Perhaps letting Mary Beth Wrobel go was Ch. 4’s calling a putt a little soon

    This would have been way cooler if you could have gotten his mug shot. Mike Cejka looking all Frank Sinatra or Mel Gibson.

      Welcome to 8 weeks ago.

      are you taking money from him for this, or is the money he’s giving you for “video web-based services” or something?

      I have no idea. I didn’t set it up.

      will his primary and general election opponents get a blog too?

      Seems to me that’s entirely up to them.

      is his posting today, “sexual offender management” autobiographical? wtf?

      No. He’s never been guilty of a sex offense. WTF indeed. If you’d like to comment further on Assemblyman Hoyt’s blog, I suggest you leave comments there.

      Subsequent comments in this thread dealing with those posts will be summarily deleted. It’s a new year, and my patience is thin. Happy Happy!

      (P.S., your failure to mention the same thing about Congresswoman Slaughter’s blog speaks volumes.)

        No money. No video services. in 2009, we offered every local politician a blog on WNYmedia free of charge. Anyone who wants a page on our site is welcomed to have one. A few more are coming along for the ride in 2010 along with some other elected official materials as well.
        But that’s about all I have to say about that.

      Each week, dozens of county legislators, town officials and state representatives pen guest columns for community newspapers all over WNY. It’s pretty standard and this is no different. We sent an email out to every single elected official in WNY to offer them a place to blog and communicate with constituents. No strings attached, no payments, no quid pro quo. So far, Slaughter, Hoyt, and Higgins have taken us up on our offer.

      I mean, it’s not like we’re printing a special edition of a newspaper targeting an elected official a week before election day and then circulating that special edition outside of our normal distribution area all while being paid by one of the most repugnant political operatives in America. That would be unethical.

    congresswoman slaughter is a representative of integrity and high moral standing. why would i comment about her?

    What’s with the media near-blackout of Cejka incident? The Buffalo News had some clips about it, but it seems that the TV media is trying to sweep it under the rug. If it were a Sabres/Bills player there would cameras parked outside their homes and 24/7 coverage. The local media seems intent on protecting their own, while having no issues about invading the private matters of any other public figure that is not employed in the TV/Radio business.

    you’re funny chris. you should have said “it’s not like we’re going full court supporting a completely unqualified candidate for county sheriff who happens to be paying our company not for that overwhelming support but for vague video and web services we never mentioned until you asked directly and haven’t bothered to explain since. that would be unethical.”

    glass houses, you know?
