Atlas Poll: 75% Believe GOP Chairman’s Assault on Young Republicans is “Outside Authority,” Benefiting Democrats

March 2, 2011

With nearly 550 votes cast in our Atlas Poll, the word for Brooklyn GOP Chairman Eaton is Grimm–I mean, grim.

Of those voting on the issue of Mr. Eaton’s decision to attack the Young Republicans of Brooklyn and replace them with an organization loyal only to him personally, 3/4 disapprove of his actions.

This comes after a slew of bad press stories hit the local media and blogosphere, which we ourselves covered.

We asked the following question: What Do You Think of Chairman Eaton’s Decision to Fund His Own Sanctioned “Young” Republican Club?

Of those, a plurality of 45% believe “he’s acting outside his authority and splitting the GOP apart.”

Not exactly rave reviews…

In the same vein but with a slightly different perspective, 30% believe that Eaton’s move against the Young Republicans is “strategically foolish and will benefit the Democrats more than him.”

A minority of 25% believe “It’s about time!” Eaton did what he did.

We’ll keep this poll open until this weekend. Also, there will be some upcoming updates about what we’re hearing regarding this story.

So be sure you come back to Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn!

    Local State Senator Marty Golden and his Republicans colleagues don’t seem to have gotten the memo that New York has a $10 billion budget gap.

    Since January 1, the GOP senators, while fronting a budget-cutting agenda, have spent $1.3 million hiring new staff and giving raises to existing staff.

    According to Senate payroll records, Golden is leading the pack, having spent more taxpayer dollars on staff than any of his colleagues.

    He has shelled out $143,495 to give six staffers $20,000 raises, and added two new staff members. His annual payroll of $657,190 is the highest of any Republican state senator in New York.

    A Republican spokesperson said the staff increases and raises were justified because the Republicans were now the majority party.

    That makes sense — in an Atila the Hun victor/spoils kind of way.

    The article from the Daily News.

    This is just a clear power grab by eaton.. No wonder people like annarummo, capano, and others have had it with eaton.

    It seems to me that Eaton would want the support of the former young republican president and “his” former candidate bob capano, but he has been silent. Could it be like Golden, Grimm, Malliotakis and Oddo that he told Eaton to go f–k himself on this?? Sources say eaton has always been paranoid about capano and his early support of grimm was the icing on the cake… To his credit, Capano has aligned himself with Grimm and in the process given another blow to eaton…

  4. Third in a serious series about "Judas Judge" and "Re-launched Official Brooklyn GOP YR President" Gallo permalink

    In Judas Judge’s February 27, 2011 “A Few Words About
    Judge, Atlas, and Other Happenings” in TJIUA, the person believed
    by many to be Russell Gallo posted, in part, the following:
    “Congratulations to the officially recognized Brooklyn Young
    Republican Club led by its dynamic president Russell Gallo. Gallo’s
    organization was credentialed on Saturday with an overwhelming
    majority vote of the NY State YRs Executive Committee I have been
    told. The newly credentialed club can trace its history back to
    1880, joining a long line of recognized YR clubs in Brooklyn.” How
    does this “newly ‘credentialed’ club” trace its history back to
    1880? This “newly ‘credentialed’ club” claims to have had its first
    meeting two weeks ago. Does the “Official Brooklyn Young
    Republicans Club” have a time machine? If “Judas Judge” is broadly
    using the word “tracing” as in “copying,” then he/she might be
    correct. Jonathan Judge’s “Original Official Brooklyn Young
    Republican Club,” which has been equally “credentialed,” and which
    is of long and continuous standing as “THE [emphasis supplied]
    Young Republican Club” in and for Kings County, does have a history
    that goes back to 1880, long antedating Eaton’s and Gallo’s newly
    created club and Lynn Krogh’s so called New York State Young
    Republicans. There are a few major procedural organizational
    questions that have arisen about Eaton’s and Gallo’s “Re-launched
    and now we really mean it Official Young Republicans Club”: 1) When
    did they elect their officers? 2) When did the NY State YRs vote to
    approve the re-launched bunch, because they were announced as the
    recognized club and Jonathan Judge’s delegation as guests very
    early in the “proceedings”, before any votes had been taken? and 3)
    Have certain necessary formalities been dispensed with?

      “2) When did the NY State YRs vote to approve the re-launched bunch, because they were announced as the recognized club and Jonathan Judge’s delegation as guests very early in the “proceedings”, before any votes had been taken?”

      The vote was taken by the executive committee of the NYSYR at a meeting at approx, 9:00 AM on Saturday, 2/26/11. See NYSYR Bylaws I. A. 1. (d) and (e).

    Feraaro, potter, lucretia are honored that the other blog puts them on equal styatus with Golden, malliotakis and Grimm.

    AAA’s March 3, 2011 TJIUA post is entitled “Brooklyn Eagle Article Confirms Russell Gallo As Only Brooklyn YR President!!!” Was there another article in the Eagle other than the one by Harold Egeln mentioned above? If not, then there is no such “confirmation” from “The Brooklyn Eagle.”

    “The Jig is Up Atlas” wants everybody to believe that Jonathan J. Judge is finished. Nonetheless, in the real world, he’s anything but done!!!

    He recently has put together and informally chairs a rump group of Republicans, which contains all the usual suspects and has informal ties to some “new” old faces (just who and how many is TOP SECRET).

    It is expected that there will be a roll-out event before spring arrives to announce JJJ’s “Re-launched Brooklyn GOP”. Just remember this “Five fours and Four Fives both mean twenty”.

  8. Thanks for that bit of information, Mr. “...proud ‘insider Republican operative’”, above; we didn’t know that. permalink

    In answer to the question, “When did the NY State YRs vote to approve the re-launched bunch, because they were announced as the recognized club and Jonathan Judge’s delegation as guests very early in the “proceedings”, before any votes had been taken?” came the following answer by “A proud ‘insider Republican operative’,” made on March 10, 2011 at about 12:30 pm :

    >>>>> “The vote [to credential the Eaton- Gallo bootleg Brooklyn Young Republicans] was taken by the executive committee of the NYSYR at a meeting at approx, 9:00 AM on Saturday, 2/26/11. See NYSYR Bylaws I. A. 1. (d) and (e).”

    The minutes of that “Executive Committee” meeting during which that alleged vote was taken, together with any and all documentation submitted to the NYSYR officers for consideration on that vote, will make interesting reading for EVERYBODY once they are turned over to the legal representative of the only rightful and “official” Brooklyn Young Republican Club, whose president at present is Jonathan Judge.

    Since you were kind enough to answer question “2)” from our comment, “Third in a serious series about ‘Judas Judge’ and ‘Re-launched Official Brooklyn GOP YR President’ Gallo”, why not take a crack at queries “1)” and “3)”!!!!!

    (btw, Mr. “proud ‘insider Republican operative’,” you’re really beating that “Jonathan ‘fire marshal’ Judge” line to death, don’t you think; and maybe you wouldn’t be so “singed” if you didn’t spend so much time basking in the sun that shines out from ykw’s ass.)
