Maziarz vs. Ranzenhofer, PolitiFAIL Tourney 2010

25 Mar

Is there anything less useful than a New York State Senator in the minority party?  I mean, aside from a minority party state assemblyman.


You might remember “favorite son of the tax cutting tea party group”, Sen. George Maziarz.  He spent $906,831 of your dollars on staff expenditures between April 1, 2008 and March 31, 2009.  During  his time in office, Maziarz has demonstrated the kind of tone deaf leadership which has made Albany famous for it’s epic level of dysfunction.  Late last year, Maziarz was raising money with tutti di tutti scumbag Pedro Espada in Manhattan.  Maziarz is the leader of the chorus of legislators who denounce “downstate” interests while accepting massive campaign donations from public employee unions, downstate interests, and lobbying groups.  Maziarz has been in public office almost as long as Dale Volker and has contributed an almost immeasurable amount to the regional FAIL bucket.

I’ll keep the Mike Ranzenhofer profile as cursory as his list of contributions to WNY after his near 20 years in office.  Meh.  I think that about sums it up.

The winner of this contest moves on to face Dale Volker, the 1972 Miami Dolphins of FAIL.
