The Karen Fischer Problem: Divisive Figure Remains Hidden As Establishment Figures Express Discontent

March 14, 2011

Where did she go?

That’s the question a number of reformers and readers are asking us about the mysterious Karen Fischer, the failed campaign manager whom Craig Eaton was poised to raise to a position of “Executive Director,” with unknown duties and for an undisclosed salary.

Now, amidst controversy among GOP establishment loyalists, Ms. Fischer’s appointment has, apparently, been permanently put on hiatus.

Or at least that’s what our sources have led us to believe.

One source and a corresponding commentator both indicated that Ms. Fischer herself has expressed displeasure over not taking a more public role in the position that was offered to her by Chairman Eaton. Indeed, whether she has even had an offer extended to her is in doubt.

Ms. Fischer was supposedly exposed to Mr. Eaton through the unsuccessful bid of GOP neophyte Peter Cipriano, who betrayed (to use a word his detractors would) or “worked against” (to use a more benign expression) the 49th Assembly District leadership that had nurtured him as a teenager politically. Cipriano blamed old hand Arnaldo Ferraro for strategy issues surrounding the Lucretia Regina-Potter campaign and, some say, covertly changed sides to support Eaton against them.

It was Ms. Fischer who aided him in winning a lackluster primary, with a heavy dose of negative campaigning via mailed literature on the part of Ms. Fischer. Universally, the campaign was considered to be run worse than the latest superhero musical, even from pro-Eaton supporters… Ms. Fischer’s skills were apparently only useful against fellow Republicans. Cipriano was trounced in the general election, a fact Dr. Ferraro tut-tutted to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle in a post-election piece.

Since her arrival on scene, individuals close to Eaton have expressed dismay, shock and anger over the potential elevation of Ms. Fischer, who is rumored to have a less than pleasant demeanor.

“She’s all bark and no bite,” said one person who had contact with the would-be Director. “I don’t know what else she does but some people seriously hate this woman.”

And, as of yet, no one has come to her aid aside from a random comment on this blog once or twice.

Not good news for Ms. Fischer.

So, maybe you can teach an old Chairman new tricks after all…

    THERE IS NOTHING WRONG BETWEEN FISCHER AND EATON. ALL YOU PEOPLE DO IS SPREAD LIES. IT DOESNT MATTER THOUGH. ANYONE WHO CROSSED CRAIG HAS NOT BEEN LONG FOR THIS POLITICAL EARTH. JUDGE BENNETT CAPANO MCCALL POTTER FERRARO. THEY’RE ALL NOTHING NOW. PEOPLE MUST DO WHAT THEY’RE TOLD IN ORDER FOR A PARTY TO WORK. THESE PEOPLE DIDN’T. NOW THEY’RE NOTHING.

    Karen Fischer has quickly become a more disliked figure than anyone else, it seems. That’s really saying something.

    Let’s just hope she doesn’t buy her pantsuits at K-Mart, like Lynn Krogh…

      Please stop attacking people for no reason. If you disagree with their ideology, fine. But it is really an outrage when you attack people for their clothes or something else irrelevant to politics.

      Sometimes people struggle. That is not reason to assault them. These people may be very successful financially very soon, and even if they won’t, there’s nothing wrong with shopping at K-Mart.

      Money buys you stuff, but it does not establish your value as a human being.

        March 15, 2011 7:22 pm

        Perhaps this needs to be explained. Lynn makes thousands of dollars in hack money. Actually, she took quite a bundle from Mickey Allegretti, last I heard. But no matter how much money you make, it doesn’t buy you class. Lynn is Troy, NY, through and through. She has no taste or class, I’m sorry to say. She had her chance. You can’t take the K-Mart out of the Krogh, even if The Donald’s writing the checks lol

        Meanwhile, you’re one to talk. Your fellow Jig people and Eaton supporters mock people for being gay, for being Jewish, for being Muslim (even if it’s a complete lie)–for every lie under the sun. One innocent fashion joke and you shriek like a hyena. Pathetic. Krogh is not being attacked for “no reason.” Her actions over the past year deserve a great deal of scrutiny, Mr/Ms #1.

    MORE LIES. NO ONE THAT I KNOW DISLIKES KAREN. SHE IS ACTIVELY SUPPORTING THE CHAIRMAN, SO IVE HEARD. AND THIS ISN’T CRAIG, NOT THAT THESE ATLAS LOSERS BELIEVE ANYTHING A PRO-EATON PERSON WRITES. NOTHING IS WRONG WITH OUR PARTY. ITS A WELL OILED MACHINE

    Even Fascistic Fashionistas should love bargain hunting and
    discounts as much as anybody. Focusing on K-Mart misses the Target,
    and no matter how many BJs you have or give in a Century won’t help
    the Brooklyn GOP or the national GOP Marshall a thing, because
    we’re still not able to tell anybody how to payoff any of their
    bills and everybody’s cards have been TJ Maxxed out; so it soon
    won’t matter what anything Costco’z nobody will be able to buy it;
    and if things keep going this way, any mention of Sam’s Club will
    only mean fond memories of JJJ’s Brooklyn YR Club. If Republicans
    don’t address debt (secured, unsecured, public, private,
    individual, cumulative, foreign, domestic, local, state and federal
    etc., etc., etc.) programmatically, no other political utterances
    will have any meaning whatsoever. btw, tell Bob Capano there’s a
    spill on Aisle Four; we don’t need another lawsuit on top of
    everything else.

      That was a very creative and humorous response. LOL.

      I agree, if someone has a problem with someone’s stances on issues or personel, that’s fair game for disagreement. But taking cheap shots at someone based on clothing? You make yourself look foolish.

        No Chairman deserves to be deified the way Mr. Eaton seeks to be. Its shameful. He thinks himself King of England!

  6. Forget about Karen Fischer -- Michael Grimm is a bigger problem permalink
    March 15, 2011 8:32 pm

    Start calling him “Sellout Mike”. He’s kicking Tea
    Party-ers to the side of the road — voting for budget extensions
    without enough cuts. The (majority) Republican caucus in Congress
    is already a shambles thanks to people like him. Who needs
    conservative Republicans like this?

    • Lorenzo Cardinal Campeggio permalink

      Grimm is only one man of over 500 senators and representatives. The true person at fault in this is Obama, who has shown no leadership at all in over two years as president. The GOP must come to a rational decision about the debt and budget, and blaming one man because it hasn’t happened as quickly as we might like is not only unfair but unreasonable.

    This Fischer woman has found good company with this band of petty political thugs. She’s like a far less capable and competent Anne Boleyn to Eaton’s Henry VIII.

  9. Karen Fischer only latest female abused and ignored in Brooklyn GOP history permalink
    March 20, 2011 3:36 pm

    Karen Fischer should investigate how the Brooklyn Republican establishment has treated the distaff side of its ledger during its recent history. Especially women who showed any initiative or individual imagination or motivation were singled out and then run-out. Names like O’Keefe, Regina-Potter, Cleary, Bonina, Sullivan and Velazquez-Bennett are just a few examples. We’re sure that there are several others who could tell the tale, as well or better.

    Has anybody heard what happened to Karen Fischer? Somebody told me that her bullet-proof vest wrapped in newspaper and containing several cod and mackeral was sent to Peter Cipriano. Does that mean she ISN’T going to be the Brooklyn GOP Executive Director?
