Merlin of Malice Gerry O’Brien Waves His Wand For Brooklyn GOP Before Halloween

October 31, 2009

It looks like a dreary Halloween weekend for the Brooklyn GOP as they endeavor to levitate corpses—I mean, candidates—in the run up to Tuesday’s elections. In so doing, it seems the party has turned to trusted GOP ghoul and Merlin of Malice Gerry O’Brien to alert the “masses.”

Thanks to a fellow Atlas reader devoted to reform, Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn has received a copy of an email sent by the Brooklyn GOP in its usual selective and clandestine manner. The email is a digital version of the recently released and controversial newspaper ads put out in newspapers this week. As we reported to you earlier today, the party has decided not to endorse citywide GOP Public Advocate candidate Alex Zablocki in these ads. This must come as a shock after the Staten Island Advance issued a glowing endorsement of Zablocki this week.

Not to be outdone, the party has duplicated this egregious “un-endorsement” advertisement and submitted it in email form to its “selective” email list (as you know, the party only sends emails to Republicans it likes) this week.

To accomplish this, it appears they turned to sometimes GOP Party Warlock Gerry O’Brien.

Here is the email:

Un-Endorsement Email

Notice how the event is taking place in Bay Ridge, a continuing reminder of the party’s pervasive Shore Road Syndrome. Then again, The Duke’s self-serving portraiture is reminder enough

Now, the person who submitted the email had this to say about the email:

Looks like O’Brien is trying to redeem himself with the party.  This has his fingerprints all over it…

This is very likely the case.

O’Brien is the prestidigitator of numerous Bay Ridge Cabal websites, including those of the Brooklyn GOP (which Atlas called on the party to update months ago) and Sen. Marty Golden (aka The Golden Prince).

If the party and failed Brooklyn GOP Chairman Craig “The Duke” Eaton have engaged O’Brien after his alleged scandalous summer activities were known to all Brooklyn GOPers, then that only speaks to their willingness to overlook O’Brien’s tactics. In case you need a refresher course in the Brooklyn GOP cannibalism that occurred this summer, allow me to remind you that O’Brien was accused of assaulting fellow Republican and Brooklyn Young Republican President Jonathan Judge, stole petitions and threatened to wipe former District Leader Yvette “off the political map.”


Since those details were revealed to Atlas, we have called for the party to sever all ties from O’Brien until an investigation could be done of his activities. This appeared to be the case, as O’Brien virtually disappeared after the summer, with the exception of the Brooklyn GOP County Committee Convention.

To date, no such inquires have been made.

What a shock, given O’Brien is a close confidant of The Duke.

So, here we have the same cheap website banner and artistry of the disgraceful Brooklyn GOP website designed by O’Brien popping in the mailboxes of the Brooklyn GOP’s hand-picked recipients. Even more disgraceful is the continuing absence of any endorsement of the party’s duly elected candidate for Public Advocate (which is even less shocking when you consider that Zablocki is a Staten Islander and Eaton has already inspired great discord with the Staten Island GOP by blaming them for the loss of the 13th Congressional District).

So, it looks like O’Brien’s back.

Alert the masses!

Well, allow me to alert the Brooklyn GOP: If one penny goes into O’Brien’s pocket for anything, I will post about it. If we hear anything about O’Brien assaulting or attacking any fellow Republicans for any reason, I will let our readers know about it.

Remember, you are on “probation,” Mr. Chairman.

This party cannibalism must cease, and that you have allowed it to persist under your reign is despicable.


So, to all of our Atlas readers, I am issuing the first ever “Atlas Alert.” If Gerry O’Brien or any of The Duke’s cabal do anything threatening to a single Republican, email us at and every Republican in the city will know about it. We will keep your information anonymous if you desire it. But the kind of tactics that took place in the past will not be tolerated in the future.

Se acabó la fiesta. The party’s over.

Meanwhile, Mr. Chairman, salvage what little you have. Excommunicate O’Brien from your Church of Political Failure. The opportunity for his atonement is over.

    Let’s face it these guys really suck and they have got to go NOW!!
    The relationship they have with each other is incestuous and clannish. The Party has become inbred. It is time for political genetic selection. A Brooklyn Republican Party vasectomy is long overdue, but castration would be better!

    Of all the Brooklyn Bloomberg places to host it, Eaton chooses Bay Ridge.

    Go Figure!

    That fat THUG O’Brien gave an interview to the Advance before the miserable loss in the 13th CD.

    Many “candidates feel their opinions…aren’t wanted.”

    Understatement of all understatements.

    Tell your boyfriend Craig Eaton that, O’Brien!

      Gerry is such a great guy!. He makes sure that all of Craig’s people are taken care of. So what if he screws up the Party? At least my jobs are secure. That’s all that matters.

        Clorinda is part of the problem. Her son was recently given a patronage boost. I pray Atlas will look into that.

    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!
