Bottom line .......let's review the tape! Film doesn't lie, Politicians do. When Politicians refuse to release the film footage to the Gazette, the only reason there an be is that they're afraid what the film shows. This woman needs a lawyer. Maybe E. Stewart Jones. Someone outside the city.

Come to think of it, that young Officer was suspended without pay until he was cleared. Why shouldn't McCarthy experience the same sanctions? He should be suspended without pay until an Independent Prosecutor clears him. Leesa Perazzo should be made Interim Mayor until the Mayor is either found guilty or innocent. That way, if he's found guilty, Mayor Perazzo will be up and running, moving the city off the crime pages and back on the right track.

Amazing. Carney says "slow down , not all the facts are known." Short memories abound. A meer 2 weeks ago they(Bennett/McCarthy/Carney) were trying to railroad that young police officer out of town on charges that turned out to be false.....they had no exact speed...they had no evidence of wreck less driving when the reviewed the traffic cam film. They had no DWI on the kid. Yet he was paraded day after day on the front page of the Gazette, TV news, and Social Media relentlessly until they realized they had nothing concrete to go to trial with. Today's news should be taken with a grain of salt. We live in the most corrupt state in the Union. The Special Prosecutor must be a Republican and must be vetted for any quid pro Schenectady Democrat relationship. Also, the film from the traffic cameras must be released. Viewing the film was good enough for that young officer. If the Mayor is telling the truth he and Carney would've put this whole thing to bed by releasing the tape. By refusing to release the film they've created the present atmosphere of conspiracy. By refusing to let the Police officers at the scene that night be interviewed, including LT McGhee, they've lost credibility. By going after that young officer they invited the karma they themselves now can't seem to spin themselves out of.

He lied about where the chase took place. It began at the intersection of Union & Dean, not in front of his house on Lexington. He had spent the previous hours drinking at Zen. He lied about what the women were doing prior to his stalking. The women, scared, drive to Police HQ while staying on the line with 9-1-1. 4 patrolman and a Sgt. stall inside HQ, wondering what to do. The Sgt correctly decides the State Police should handle this and he calls them. The LT. on duty thinks otherwise. He cancels the State Police and convinces the women not to press charges. Although thought to be drunk by the complainants, amazingly there's no breathalyzer test and the LT allows the Mayor to drive home. There can be no confidence in this man to serve ever again. He needs to re-sign. Perazzo needs to be made Mayor ASAP so that the city may put this stain in its rear view mirror and continue its upward mobility without a Mayor Ford type of embarrassment at the wheel.

Facts: Mayor lied about it happening outside his house. He was seen by multiple people at Zen that night, and the confrontation with the women began at Union & Dean, proceeded down Union until they cut over to Eastern, down Eastern across Veeder onto Liberty.
Four patrolman and a Sgt approached the hysterical women and the Mayor outside Police HQ and the Sgt correctly called the State Police to handle the matter. That was the delay. He felt it was a conflict of interest for the SPD to handle it. When LT McGhee was informed he called the State Police and cancelled them. He then coerced the women into not pressing charges and allowed the Mayor to drive himself home in the condition he was reportedly in.
This is why it's critical that the traffic cams be made public. They will show the Mayors eratic driving and that he was nowhere near his house on Lexington. This is why Carney won't release the tapes. He's friend will be done. It's all as simple as that.

I just heard they're trying ban Vince Riggi from the secret Council meeting!!! This is what our city government has become....a criminal conspiracy worthy of RICO charges. Let's all contact US Attorney Preet Bharara's office at (212)637-2200. Mr.Bharara is the same man who has taken down Silver and Skelos. We've got his next cases right here in Schenectady!

Of course it's a closed meeting. 6 of 7 of the Council members are Democrats, the Safety Commissioner works at the behest of McCarthy, and Falotico made numerous contributions to McCarthy's campaign. This should labeled a " Democrat Damage Control" meeting, as in "how do we connive to let Gary get away with yet another wacky incident?" If they could ban Vince Riggi somehow u can believe they would. Perazzo is afraid of the public outrage that would boil over into next weeks Council meeting. So the City Council is now some secretive Junta obstructing public access in order to save the Dictator. It just gets worse and worse each day....where is the State? Where are the Feds?

1) He lied about where it happened. It did not occur on his block, Lexington. It began at the intersection of Union & Dean, continued down Union, cut over to Eastern, and across Veeder onto Liberty.
2) How did he get home from Police Hdqtrs? Did a Patrolman drive him home? Did the Police let him drive himself home in his condition? Before answering remember that, while McCracken & McGhee are protecting him, other Schenectady PD members are saying what actually happened.

Not only did Schenectady PD not administer a breathalyzer test, they let him drive home!!! And the Mayor lied in the first place about it happening in front of his house on Lexington. It started on Upper Union, cut over to Eastern, crossed Veeder onto Liberty and ended at HQ. Just the fact that he lied about it happening on Lexington tells you he's guilty.
