Chairman Craig “The Duke of Bay Ridge” Eaton AWOL as “Revolution” Breaks Out
Has anyone heard from “The Irrelevant One” recently?
That would be Brooklyn GOP Chairman Craig “The Duke of Bay Ridge”Eaton, the man responsible for leading this party into the most calamitous election cycle we’ve witnessed in Brooklyn in recent GOP history.
The man who refuses to do anything about the recently ignited “Brooklyn GOP Revolution” or the spiteful intra-party warfare being generated online and elsewhere.
The man whose Catholic organization has worked with Democratic machine creatures like David Greenfield in the 44th City Council race, while his party leadership endorsed a no-name candidate who has all but disappeared from the face of the political landscape.
The man whose charitable organizations have had questionable dealings.
The man who maintained our party’s headquarters at his personal law firm.
The man who paid political consultant and Merlin of Malice Gerry O’Brien even after he ran amok this past year.
The man who has never been a district leader in his life and whose sole qualification for being chairman was donating to Senator Golden, from what we can tell.
Mr. Eaton has been strangely absent as his Bay Ridge Cabal’s party organization appears to be falling apart at the seems. From what we can tell, not a single diplomatic effort has been made by the Chairman in the course of this recent blogging era in the Brooklyn GOP to prevent what has now become a rallying cry for disaffected and disheartened GOPers to take back their party.
Rather than let cooler heads prevail, Mr. Eaton has committed the same sin the English king did in the run up to the Revolutionary War: he has demonstrated total and utter apathy and disregard for his constituents.
Their needs are not his needs.
Their problems are not his problems.
“Let them eat cake!” is a phrase that comes to mind.
And now, the groundswell of reformist revolutionaries building both online and borough-wide has achieved statewide attention, as Republican organizations far and wide are reading the details on this blog and monitoring the havoc that has ensued under the stewardship of Mr. Eaton and Mr. Golden.
But despite this catastrophic schism on hand, Mr. Eaton is nowhere to be found.
Not a word.
Perhaps, Mr. Eaton believes this is all just a bad dream?
It’s called “consequences,” Mr. Chairman. Consequences for your continued mistakes, failures and absence of leadership.
And now, as the tea is being thrown overboard, you are absent from your post?
That says everything.
