Follow the $$$$: Contributors to the Comeback Team. Is it believable?

02 Nov

Here’s a list of the blind and the deaf in and around Coeymans.
These are the people who have no respect for Truth, Integrity, Honesty, Ethics, and Fair Play.
Note their names well and remember!

Just a couple of comments:

The list below shows only those people who don’t care about Truth, Integrity, Fair-play, Community, and are willing to pay to support their hidden agendas. Some of them are just ignorant, impressionable people who may not be mentally competent, and are easy prey for the scoundrels. You decide.

We find it interesting that Brendan Lefevre is so committed to his own campaign that he managed to cough up a mere $100 to contribute to his own campaign! Pretty sorry, if you ask us. It also looks like Brendan is still living in his dad’s basement at 350 Bushendorf Road, Ravena. Maybe he’ll be moving into the basement at Coeymans Town Hall if he’s ever elected. NOT!

Billy Biers is so committed he donated a whopping $100.00 (at least that’s what’s publicly reported). How is it that Mary Driscoll, living in a trailer park, can donate more than 4x more than Billy Biers?

Yup! It’s really astounding that Mary Driscoll contributed $450.00 to the McHugh Comebacks! Where does a woman like that get that kind of play money? That must be more than half her social security check! Somebody better take the old woman’s checkbook away before she gives away the entire trailer park!

Poor, poor Mary! She’s now $450 poorer, thanks to the Comeback Team!

The McHugh Backpedalers have received a total of almost $20,000 in campaign contributions as of October 31, 2019. (New York State Board of Elections, Campaign Financial Disclosure). (For a similar list for the Coeymans Democrats, click here: Democrats.) Names and amounts are all public information. To see the details, just click the link. But we’re concerned that this disclosure doesn’t tell the whole story. The Comeback Team is spending money like water. How far do you think the $20,000 would go with all the full-page ads, the campaign signs, the advertising, the bilboards? There’s more to this than meets the public’s eye. And it’s not on the up-an-up.

As of October 31, 2019, $19,435 was collected, of which $17,770 was contributed by the named donors below. $1,735 was contributed by so-called “unitemized”. “Unitemized” are total contribution(s) of less than $99. For the definition of “unitemized” as it appears in the NYS Board of Elections manual on contributions, see the Note below. Actually, this definition doesn’t make much sense, because some of the “unitemized” contributions do exceed $1000!

You really have to wonder why so many out-of-towners (indicated in brown bold) made such substantial contributions. What is their interest in the ComebackTeam? We find the out-of-town interest a bit revealing, since the Friends of Coeymans were so loud in announcing that Touchette supporters (a bit of an inaccurate observation on the FOC’s part) came to Coeymans in support  of Rick Touchette for County Legislator. The Friends of Coeymans and the brainless who support them made it look like it was Carver Laraway’s Russian Invasion. Look, people, Rick Touchette is an Albany County Legislator, representing the Town of Coeymans voters and residents, COUNTY-WIDE! As a county official, he’s entitled to bring in his campaign workers. Who’s to say he’s not? The neonazi  FOCs?

We say FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL! Let’s ask who all of these out-of-town campaign contributors are and what their interest is in Coeymans!

An awful lot of out-of-town money, and some big bucks at stake. Ever wonder?

Note that several of the contributors have made multiple contributions and are listed more than once in the list below.

Remember: These people are the ones to watch but the really dangerous ones are the ones NOT listed in the public disclosure documents!

Who are the closet donors, the BIG donors? Russian Businessman Boris Jordan (Curaleaf)? Carver Laraway? LaFarge Holcim? Do you really think they’re not supporting their General Counsel, McHugh? Odd they’re not listed as supporting the Comeback Team, isn’t it?


Notes:

This definition actually doesn’t make much sense if you look at the reported contributions appearing as “unitemized”, since some are more than $1000 and yet still appear as “unitemized.” If anyone can explain this, we’d be very interested in sharing what you find.

    Someone should look into who is sponsoring all the Facebook posts of Friends of Coeymans, The person who is paying for all those is not even listed in these disclosures… where is that money coming from?

      Dear JM,

      Thank you for your comment. I wouldn’t be too concerned with the Facebook posts on the FOC site. First of all, FOC are a trio of blow-hard bully-types. They like to hear themselves fart but think it’s the voice of the people. Well, we do know that IS the voice of some of the people — those who think and talk from their butts.

      We’d like to think that groups like FOC and the Comebacks are irrelevant but regrettably they’re not. They do, in fact, represent a clear minority but still a presence in our communities. They thrive on dissent, division, anxiety, fear, misinformation, hate, and negativity. Truth, reality, facts are not part of their vocabulary.

      At the risk of being repetitive, they remind me, and would anyone else with a knowledge of history, of the mindless thugs that formed the “enforcer” hate groups in Nazi Germany. That’s why I frequently use the term “neonazi” to describe FOC and their antics. Just as in Nazi Germany, the elite stayed pretty much clear of the “enforcers,” who were called the “people,” and, like George McHugh and his Comeback team, the elite kept their hands clean, while propagandizing the people.

      Facebook is largely abused at no cost to the abuser. FOC has listed themselves as a “community organization” which is not all together untrue. They are a community or a group of individuals bound by certain values and goals, albeit asocial ones.

      FOC will be unleased on Coeymans and everyone else, just as the Nazi “enforcers” were in 1938, and a darkness will embrace all of Coeymans. It will be a replay of the Kristallnacht, (German: “Crystal Night”), also called Night of Broken Glass or November persecutions of Jews, and later other “undesirables,” the night of November 9–10, 1938, when German Nazis attacked Jewish persons and property. We all know the rest of the story.

      It’s interesting that our elections are held around November 9th. November 9, 1938, was a Wednesday, the day after our elections are traditionally held, on Tuesdays.

      It all began with a small group like FOC and with a nation of apathetic, depressed, unhappy, angry, and confused people desperate for leadership and lies; and we all know the rest of the story. Will history repeat itself?

    Thank you again for providing this information. It’s interesting that the platform FOC takes on social media is to “not let outsiders dictate our small town”, yet from their “About” space on Facebook, “During this meeting we observed over 80% of the people in attendance were from out of Town. Places like Albany, East Greenbush, Schodack, Canaan, New Baltimore to name a few. There were even people who were from Florida, who rent dock space at RC yacht club during the summer. There were a handful of Coeymans residents in attendance.”
    They clearly are OK accepting/advocating money from out of town folk though.
    I also didn’t see any donations from their recent speakers from the CBA who were so passionate about their cause. I see the same old names from the 90’s as locals donating. Dollars to donuts they haven’t done their own research as well, just buying the rhetoric.

      A good comparison, rather contrast would be to have a look at the Democratic contributions. There’s quite a difference, particularly when one looks at the out-of-town contributors and the special-interest contributors (none). There are even fewer “unitemized” entries.

      Something’s definitely amiss with the Comeback Team.

    Hmmm…DREYER BOYAJIAN LLP. I’m surprised we don’t see Kevin Luibrand as well. It struck me as odd when we McHugh had knowledge of my visits with both attorneys. Weird.

      It’s not weird at all. They’re all in bed together. They have no morals, no ethics. The only shared value they have is greed.
