To ti kazem.Nadam se da nije ambasada finansirala Golubovicec dolazak vec da se tamo zatekao drugom svrhom. Prosto, malo je bez veze da se vrsi promociju kulture na koju dodje 80% sunarodnika, a 20% su prijatelji sunarodnika.

Nije finansirao Konzulat (od njih je stiglo nekoliko kartona vina), vec Kolumbija univerzitet. Isti dan bile su i projekcije filmova i iz jos nekoliko bivsih jugoslovenskih republika. Ali, kod njih nije bilo vina :D

Uhapsen predsednik Liberalne stranke Njujorka, zbog pay-to-play.Err... Who?Exactly. ;) Salu na stranu, iako je Liberalna stranka pojedincno minorna (poput Konzervativne ili one stranke komunistickih ludjaka iz WFPa), da se samostalno pojavi na izborima, ipak njihovih 200-300K glasova (koliko manje-vise teze i ove ostale gorepomenute stranke) su dovoljan kapital da se Demokrate ili Republikanci ucenjuju prilikom davanja podrske kandidatima ovih dvaju velikih stranaka (Republikancima su kamen za vratom Konzervativci, a Demokratama jos tezi su oni commiji iz WFPa. Liberali su saveznici Demokrata, no ne libe se ni veza sa Republikancima). Otude, mito i korupcija su ko dobar dan u dilovima izmedju malih i velikih. To svi znaju, no lakse je da se zmuri, nego da se pocne sa rasciscavanjem trule i smrdljive NYC/NYS scene. Bar do pre neki dan. Izgleda da je doticni gospodin ili preterao (maznuo je 800K$ za "usluge"), ili nam se to nas AG Cuomo Jr. sprema za izbore i ocevu bivsu fotelju. Koji god da je motiv, meni je svejedno, drago mi je da je doslo do hapsenja, a dao dragi Bog, ni AG se nece samo na ovome zaustaviti.Evo kako je NYPost propratio ovu vest.Liberali+Demokrate

ALBANY FOR SALE' RAPSALBANY -- Disgraced former state Comptroller Alan Hevesi helped rig an Assembly seat for his son and ordered an aide to reward a longtime crony -- who pocketed $800,000, sources claimed yesterday, in the pension-fund scandal's latest bombshell.The ally -- former Liberal Party boss Raymond Harding, who was also close to Rudy Giuliani -- was in Manhattan Criminal Court yesterday to face three felony counts.Among the allegations against Harding is receiving huge payoffs to steer public-employee pension-fund investments to two financial firms.Harding got the kickbacks to reward him for political favors, including his help in securing an Assembly seat for Hevesi's son, Andrew, in May 2005, according to the criminal complaint by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.The revelations come after a two-year investigation of a pay-to-play scheme in which Cuomo says Hevesi aides -- led by prominent Democratic consultant Hank Morris -- traded access to the massive pension fund for more than $30 million in fees, gifts and campaign contributions."They were using the fund as a piggy bank to pay people who did them political favors, like clearing an Assembly seat for the comptroller's son," Cuomo said.Last month, Morris and former pension-fund manager David Loglisci were indicted on 123 counts for their alleged roles in the scheme.According to yesterday's complaint, Harding joined the scheme in June 2003, seeking help from a Comptroller's Office official -- whom Cuomo didn't identify -- to secure kickbacks.Sources identified the anonymous "Official A" as Hevesi's former chief of staff, Jack Chartier, who is believed to be cooperating with the investigation.Harding had over the previous 30 years delivered the key Liberal ballot line to many elected officials.He had endorsed Alan Hevesi in his numerous runs for state Assembly and, later, city and state comptroller.At the time, however, Harding needed help with legal bills related to his son, Russell A. Harding, who was battling embezzlement charges.The aide brought the elder Harding's plight to someone whom Cuomo identified only as "Official B," but who sources confirmed was Hevesi.Hevesi told the aide that Harding should see Morris, Hevesi's longtime political guru.Morris then brokered a meeting between Harding and Paladin Capital Group, a private equity firm seeking an investment from the state pension fund. Months later, Loglisci approved a $20 million pension-fund investment.Harding, in turn, allegedly received $300,000 in sham consulting fees.An attorney for the former comptroller denies wrongdoing.Hevesi resigned in December 2006 after being convicted of an unrelated felony.Hevesi ordered a top aide to approach then-Queens Assemblyman Michael Cohen about leaving his seat in 2005 so the younger Hevesi could run for it, according to Cuomo and sources.Harding arranged an interview for Cohen for a $150,000-a-year marketing post at the Health Insurance Plan of New York. Cohen got the job and stepped down in March.A spokesman for Cohen, who is currently running for City Council, said was cooperating with probers. The younger Hevesi easily won the seat in a special election quickly arranged by then-Gov. George Pataki.Harding soon afterward collected $505,000 in fees from Pequot, a firm that had received a $100 million fund investment.Cuomo said investigators do not believe the younger Hevesi had any knowledge of the deal.Additional reporting by Dareh Gregorian, Sally Goldenberg and David Seifman

PATAKI AIDES TIED TO SCHEMEnews_graph2.jpg ALBANY -- The state pension-fund scandal has touched the administration of former Gov. George Pataki for the first time, according to revelations yesterday.Aides to Pataki conspired with Liberal Party boss Raymond Harding to rig up an Assembly seat for Democratic Comptroller Alan Hevesi's son, Andrew, sources said.One of the Pataki aides is believed to be Adam Barsky, a onetime senior fiscal aide to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, The Post has learned.Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's bombshell criminal complaint against Harding says that "official A" -- identified to The Post as Alan Hevesi aide Jack Chartier -- "solicited help from a high-level aide to the New York governor [Pataki] at the time, who agreed to help.""Shortly thereafter, the 'governor's aide A' told 'official A' that the defendant [Harding] had pledged to introduce [an] assemblyman to a high-level executive at an insurance company," the complaint continued. It was referring to a private-sector job that would be provided to the incumbent assemblyman so he would resign and free the seat for the younger Hevesi.Former Pataki aides said they believed that the "governor's aide A" was Barsky, a Harding friend who at the time was Pataki's assistant chief of staff.Barsky denied any involvement, saying that while he may have been in social contact with Harding, he "absolutely did not discuss" an effort to find the then-assemblyman a private-sector job.Cuomo's complaint also alleged a second Pataki aide later met with Chartier "and requested that the governor certify a special election for the vacant Assembly seat as quickly as possible, which would discourage competition for the seat." It remained unclear last night who the second aide was.Pataki spokesman David Catalfamo said the former governor "had no knowledge of the activities" outlined by Cuomo.Cuomo said investigators had found "no evidence" that Pataki was involved in illegal conduct.fredric.dicker@nypost.com
NYP Comment
DRAINING THE SWAMP Paydirt.Attorney General Andrew Cuomo may well have hit the mother lode in his investigation of endemic corruption in the state pension funds.The AG yesterday brought felony charges against a veteran political kingmaker, accusing him of a "pay-to-play" scheme that essentially bought an Assembly seat for felonious ex-Comptroller Alan Hevesi's son, Andrew.According to Cuomo, Hevesi's office arranged for Raymond Harding -- onetime chair of the now-defunct Liberal Party -- to collect $800,000 in illegal fees as part of a sham pension-fund transaction in return for political fixes favoring both Hevesi and his son.The scheme -- in which Democratic Assemblyman Michael Cohen got a six-figure private-sector job with Harding's help, and gave up his seat in 2005 to make room for the younger Hevesi -- also involved two senior aides to then-Gov. George Pataki, a Republican.The Post's Fredric U. Dicker and Brendan Scott report the indictment's unnamed figures include Hevesi, his then-chief of staff, Jack Chartier, and Adam Barsky, a deputy chief of staff to Pataki.In other words, the state's constitutionally designated fiscal watchdog -- the comptroller -- was in cahoots with the office of the same official -- the governor -- he was supposed to be watching.That pretty much sums up Albany.As Cuomo yesterday put it: "Corruption breeds corruption -- and, unchecked, becomes pervasive."Andrew Hevesi hasn't been implicated in the scheme, nor is there evidence he knew of it, says Cuomo.Cohen, on the other hand, is now running for a City Council seat -- and says he has no plans to quit the race. Time will tell about that.As for Alan Hevesi, Cuomo refused to discuss his possible involvement. But he noted that the investigation is ongoing -- and flatly responded "yes" when asked if additional criminal charges are likely.Just last month, Cuomo named two longtime top Hevesi aides, Hank Morris and David Logslisci, in a 123-count indictment, charging that they used the pension fund as a "piggy bank" to generate $30 million in kickbacks, gifts and campaign contributions.But yesterday's felony complaint takes Cuomo's two-year probe to a new level.So-called "pay-to-play" in the comptroller's office -- campaign contributors receiving lush pension-fund contracts -- has long fouled New York politics.Now Cuomo alleges -- quite persuasively -- that pension cash was actually used to purchase a public office.And that key aides to a pair of the highest-ranking elected officials in New York were in on it -- on a bipartisan basis.Keep digging, Andrew.So far, so good. But keep digging.

INVITING CORRUPTIONNY'S RISKY THIRD-PARTY RULESraymond_harding1.jpgHarding: Liberal boss indicted yesterdayYESTERDAY'S wide ranging indictment against former Liberal Party boss Raymond B. Harding paints a vivid portrait of ballot lines for sale in New York.The indictment alleges that, in exchange for numerous Liberal endorsements over the years, officials in the office of disgraced ex-Comptroller Alan Hevesi rewarded Harding with secret assignments on transactions in the state's pension fund that garnered the ex-party boss hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees.The indictment is a reminder that New York's unusual election law, which lets candidates run on multiple party lines, is an invitation to corruption and political patronage.With the growing disgust of business-as-usual in Albany, now is the time for reforms that would give New York a genuine third-party system -- in which minor parties run their own candidates and compete in the marketplace of ideas for votes.Minor parties are common in US politics, but few states afford them such an easy path to power as New York: In the Empire State a minor party can cross-endorse candidates who are also appearing on the Democratic and Republican lines. This third-party backing has become an object of intense desire among Republicans and Democrats, because it can cut down on competition and ensure that an independent candidate doesn't siphon votes away from major-party candidates.New York law also gives minor parties incentives to cross-endorse popular candidates rather than run their own party members as contenders. For starters, a party that garners at least 50,000 votes in a gubernatorial election earns an automatic spot on the ballot for the next four years.And cross-endorsing also gives minor parties influence over the votes of Democratic or Republican office-holders whose views they normally couldn't sway.All this electoral complexity leads to political horse-trading that gives third-parties disproportionate power without actually increasing choices for voters. In 1998, for instance, the new Working Families Party had only about 100 enrolled voters in the state. But the party endorsed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Peter Vallone, a fiscal conservative whose platform didn't reflect the far-left WFP agenda. Vallone was desperate for a third-party line in his battle against George Pataki, who wielded both the Republican and Conservative lines; the WFP, a creature of the state's unions, was desperate for votes. New York law allowed tens of thousands of voters, many of them union members who are enrolled Democrats, to vote for Vallone on the WFP line -- giving the party a place on future ballots and hence enormous influence despite its paltry enrollments.Harding was a master at using the power of the third-party cross-endorsement. He cross-endorsed Rudy Giuliani for mayor, thereby giving Giuliani an extra line where Democrats who wanted to vote for him could do so without pulling the Republican lever. In a city with only only about 33,000 voters enrolled as Liberals, Giuliani pulled nearly 62,000 votes on the Liberal line in his 1993 defeat of David Dinkins.With his party helping provide the margin of victory in a tight race, Harding became a powerful force in the Giuliani administration, where two of his sons and other Liberal officials gained appointments.But Harding worked with members of both major parties. He frequently cross-endorsed Alan Hevesi in the Queens Democrat's campaigns for the state Assembly, for mayor and for state comptroller.It was in exchange for this longtime support, the indictment alleges, that officials in Hevesi's office conspired to reward Harding by making him a party to transactions that they tried to conceal from public view.Harding, the indictment alleges, showed his gratitude and continued support by helping to find a private-sector job for then-Assemblyman Michael Cohen, clearing the way for Hevesi's son Andrew to replace him in the Legislature.As these examples suggest, the potential for abuse of this sort in such a system is so great that most states made the process of cross-endorsing an electoral relic in the 19th century. Only seven states still allow it, and nowhere is its practice as widespread and influential as here.New York needs to reform its election law to end the so-called "fusion politics" of cross-endorsing. This would ensure that third-parties offer voters a real choice -- not just a duplication of names on other party lines.And it would force minor parties to engage in real organization building, rather than allowing groups with little membership to earn their way onto ballots on the coattails of major-party candidates, ala the Working Families Party in 1998. That practice awards too much power to narrow, special interest parties.Albany owes voters a reform that most states embraced more than a century ago.Steven Malanga is a senior editor at City Journal
