Letter to Chairman Eaton Regarding Conduct of Political Consultants

September 16, 2009

Atlas Shrugs has sent a letter to the Kings County Republican Party offering party Chairman Craig Eaton an opportunity to comment on the various allegations and controversy swarming around the party’s political consultants. Earlier this evening, we submitted the following remarks to him by email:

Dear Chairman Eaton,

As a reader of our blog, we here at Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn felt the need to write to you on behalf of your concerned constituents regarding the course of conduct that some of the political consultants that have been paid by the Kings County Republican Party have been demonstrating.

Most recently, on the Urban Elephants blog, a letter from Brooklyn Young Republican Club President Jonathan Judge to the party’s Executive Committee was leaked disclosing a harassment complaint and allegations on the part of Mr. Judge that he was physically harassed and threatened by political consultant Gerry O’Brien, a sometimes-Democratic consultant with clear conflicts of interests, despite the fact that the county party has provided him thousands of dollars.

Also, last week, Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn exposed the party’s financing of another consultant that has received thousands from Republicans and serves as Chair of the NYC Voter Assistance Commission, Dr. Jeffrey Kraus, who publicly insulted the Republican Party’s candidate for Public Advocate Alex Zablocki.

We write to offer you an opportunity as the current party Chairman to examine these and other corruptions that have been plaguing your county party and that are gaining attention among your fellow constituents and elsewhere. This kind of conduct is reprehensible and needs to be extricated from our party or else the Republican Party as we know it will finally cease to exist in Brooklyn.

We invite you to send us your findings so we may post them and begin to shed some light on this issue. Your voice has been missing from this discussion, and it should be heard.

    Urban Elephants is catching wind of the terrible dog-eat-dog world that is the Kings County GOP. The writing is on the wall, Eaton. If you don’t see it, you’re in big trouble.

    It’s about time someone publicized the discordant atmosphere of the Brooklyn Republican Party. Enough is enough. Reform is coming!

    What they’ve done to Susan is uncalled for.

    Only one person can do this – that is the bulldog, evil, Political Consultant, Gerry O’Brien. Gerry O’Brien consistently turns against his clients. Gerry O’Brien consistently uses dirt, smearing and malice to accomplish whatever evil goals he has.

    Craig Eaton and Marty Golden – be afraid, be very afraid . . . not of the folks on Atlas, but of Gerry O’Brien. You, the Kings County GOP, and many others have paid Gerry O’Brien for his evil services. In the process, he has learned your Achilles heel. He will use it against you . . . or is he doing so already? Are you beholden to Gerry O’Brien because he already has you where he wants you? Are you trapped in his evil lair?

    Beware! Beware! The evil one O’Brien will get you, too!
