Council, Brantley Accept Walsh Apology, Plus: GOP Targets Bloomer, And Malloy Moolah

Evening Update: Everyone acted adult-like Monday night at City Hall–no yelling, screaming, name calling–as the City Council accepted an apology from councilman Bob Walsh to his district partner Evette Brantley and the city as a whole after he had berated her in a racially charged phone message following her support of Mayor Bill Finch’s Steel Point development agreement.

The council took no formal action against Walsh beyond resolving to accept his apology and seeking a diversity training program for all council members.

The evening began with the playing of Walsh’s phone message in which he scolds Brantley for submission to her “masta” and then a subsequent phone call in which he apologized. Walsh is white, Brantley is black.

It was then Evette’s turn to speak and she told a council audience of roughly 100 that she was “hurt, betrayed and belittled.”

Walsh followed with a heartfelt apology saying it was not his intention to hurt. He also, at the urging of Brantley, apologized to the citizens of Bridgeport and entire city. “Apology accepted,” said Evette. The audience cheered. A number of council members spoke urging the acceptance of the apology and to move on to city business.

More on this in the morning.

 From the City Charter:

The city council may determine its rules of proceeding in conformity to the general principles of parliamentary law, may punish members for disorderly behavior, and, after notice and hearing, may, by a two-thirds vote of all council members, expel a member for due cause. A quorum shall consist of eleven council members. At the request of any council member, the vote upon any question shall be taken by roll call vote.

GOP Rips Dick

Look for Richard Blumenthal to be GOP State Chair Chris Healy’s favorite whipping boy. See news release below from Healy after the the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate’s Sunday morning television interview.


HARTFORD – Attorney General Dick Blumenthal showed how truly impressed he is with himself Sunday but dodged several key questions, including health care and terrorism, according to Republican Party Chairman Chris Healy Sunday. 

“Dick Blumenthal is the same old tired politician with the same brand of blather that voters are exhausted by,” said Healy. “Anyone who listens to Dick Blumenthal knows he will say anything to be elected.”

Some highlights of Dick-Speak Sunday:

•Blumenthal said he was opposed to the insider deal which rewarded the state of Nebraska with millions in Medicaid subsidy – but then said he would have to “review” the final bill if the provision wasn’t removed. He also said lawsuits being considered by other Attorneys General were “premature,” even though Blumenthal routinely threatens lawsuits. 

•Blumenthal said he wanted stronger financial oversight of the financial industry, but would “review” controls that were removed with the repeal of Glass Steagel, the laws which prohibited some of the investment vehicles that led to financial collapse.

•Blumenthal wouldn’t say whether the most recent airline bomber or the 9-11 mastermind should be tried in New York under civilian rule, since each case should be “reviewed,” individually. 

•Blumenthal claimed he was a “fighter” for Connecticut, using the term “fight” three dozen times in the half-hour interview, and even claimed he had saved the lives of many Connecticut residents through his lawsuits of insurance companies.

•Blumenthal told about how he had successfully fought the utility companies, among other corporate villains. But then, Blumenthal lamented that Connecticut had the highest electric rates in the country.

“How has Dick Blumenthal fought for us and everything is still so bad?” asked Healy. “I am sure we are all grateful that Dick Blumenthal feels he is making a difference, including matters of life and death, but his hubris will not fool the voters.”

Healy did credit Blumenthal with supporting public broadcast of the current health care debate, although the Attorney General incorrectly noted the bill was in a conference report. The bill is being negotiated behind closed doors in both the House and Senate, Healy noted.

“Dick Blumenthal assumes the voters don’t pay attention to details, but there will be enough time for citizens to realize that he is more of the same story – empty promises and lots of talk,” said Healy.

News release from Malloy campaign


January 11, 2010 – Potential candidate for Governor Dan Malloy, the former Mayor of Stamford, today announced that he raised $70,142 from October 1 through the end of 2009, as indicated in the fourth quarter fundraising report his committee will file today. Since forming his exploratory committee Malloy has raised a total of $443,250.

In this quarter, Malloy received contributions from 518 individuals. 2,103 people have now contributed to his committee since it was formed last year, with 1,006 total qualifying contributions toward public campaign financing. During the fourth quarter 364 of Malloy’s contributors gave $100 or less.

“Since beginning this exploratory effort, our fundraising has been steady and successful,” said Malloy. “Most importantly, we’ve seen a consistently strong number of individual donors each quarter – a clear indicator of the type of grassroots support that will matter most this election year under public campaign financing. As a strong proponent of Connecticut’s Citizens Elections Program, I look forward to utilizing CEP should I decide to become a candidate.”

Since forming his exploratory committee last year, Malloy has been visiting communities and Democratic town committees across Connecticut to speak with residents about the challenges facing the state, and to share his own ideas for putting Connecticut back on track. Recently Malloy has been outspoken on issues such as jobs, the budget, health care, and campaign finance reform.

Fandance Downtown

An Exotic New Dance Musical Direct from California

Sparkles with a large and talented cast

Live, on-stage at The Downtown Cabaret Theater

For the East Coast premiere of Fandance… the Legend of Sally Rand

A captivating true story of the famed burlesque queen who started out on a Quaker farm and ran away with the circus to grow up in the days of Vaudeville and be discovered by Cecil B. DeMille, only to lose her film career when “sound” came in, due to a lisp.

Down and out on the streets of Chicago during the Great Depression, Sally saw an ad for exotic acts at the Paramount Club and bartered for two big ostrich fans at the pawn shop, and the most infamous of fan dances was born.

Arrested four times in one day for indecent exposure at the Chicago World’s Fair, she was released for “want of equity,” meaning you couldn’t see anything no matter how much you tried.

A young girl named Rosie, denied the right to buy a ticket because of her age, snuck into the World’s Fair to see the famous dancer and never forgot the grace and beauty she saw. The two women’s paths would cross once more at the end of their lives. The story takes place all the years in-between.

One an infamous fan dancer who would open a nude dude ranch and be known as “America’s Treasure;” the other an ordinary woman who would iron clothes in exchange for dance lessons for her daughter and go to garage sales to find bargains.

Fate takes a twist and Rosie finds an old woman at a garage sale selling Sally Rand’s mementos. Memories are shared. The old woman asks for the name of Rosie’s daughter, takes a playbill and signs it, “To Misty from Sally Rand.”

Written and directed by Misty Rowe, the show takes the audience through 81 years of dance history with a musical story that will tear at your heartstrings. Misty is remembered for the box office hit, Always, Patsy Cline, along with her 19 years on Hee Haw that won her TV Land’s Entertainer’s Award. A professional director for S.D.C., Ms. Rowe spent 8 years in Fairfield County, Connecticut, writing Fandance with the guidance of local historians. She also portrays the older Sally with her favorite co-stars.

Broadway actress Joy Franz, whose exceptional voice has put her in more hits on Broadway than most performers could ever dream about. From the original production of Pippin and Stephen Sondheim’s Company, Ms. Franz also went on to be the Wicked Stepmother for years in Into the Woods, including the national tour and its production on PBS. Her comedic talents shined in Guys & Dolls and her unforgettable voice and elegance graced the world premiere of Leonard Bernstein’s Mass at the Kennedy Center. A personal friend of the author of Fandance for 20 years and having just worked with Steve Rossi, she decided not to miss out on all the fun and joined the cast.

Funny and talented Steve Rossi was the tall, handsome half of the famous Allen & Rossi comedy team. Starting his career at age six in the Bing Crosby film Going My Way, Steve would later record the hit song More and sing it at the Academy Awards in 1974. His legendary career includes over 800 TV shows. His favorite? Appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show with the Beatles in 1965. Never one to talk about age, Mr. Rossi, however, does admit to opening for Mae West.

Fandance introduces Miss Amber Carpenter as the young Sally Rand. Petite and blonde, Amber not only looks like the real Sally, but is classically trained in voice and dance and has performed onstage since she was three.

Joining her are talented actors Robin Field and Steve Cassling with a bevy of beauties who sing, dance and act and are known as “The Uli Uli Girls.”

The days of Vaudeville and Burlesque are brought to life through the music of Broadway conductor, Michael Sansonia, and the multi-media design of Emmy-honored Paul Mitton.

  1. Lennie I am glad you are still around. I thought you may have sold this site to Joel. I was starting to look around for a new blog. Now that I know you are still around I will stay.

    1. town committee, you caved in to Martha Santiago’s T.C.
      Now you are contemplating caving in to me. “The Giant Granite in front is an obstacle to the weak, a stepping stone for the bold.”

  2. If the president can forgive senator Reid for his racially charged comments involving being light-skinned and not using negro (his words not mine) dialect, then the council should have no problem with Walsh’s dumb comments.

  3. Longtime lurker with a question–I didn’t know that PACs *had* to spend their money on electing or defeating candidates, but according to this, that’s the rule.

    With that in mind, should Bill Finch, Adam Wood et al. have to pay back all the holiday gifts, convention trips and steak dinners purchased by the “People for Excellence in Government” PAC? (Search here to see their reports.) It easily amounts to tens of thousands of disallowed expenditures.

      1. Basically, Finch, Wood, and a husband and wife team that apparently run Finch’s political operation from Essex, CT have spent tens of thousands of dollars on meals, travel, and gifts from a PAC that they operate.

        (For links, the files are PDFs — here is Finch transferring $46,000 from his mayoral campaign to the PAC on page 4, and getting reimbursed for $10,000 in expenses from going to the Democratic National Convention in 2008 on page 17. This other one has Sonya Finch, Keri Wood, and Tyrone McClain on the PAC’s payroll on page 17 and 19, the Finch family’s Xmas shopping at TJ Maxx, Target, and Home Goods on page 25, and $2000 worth of food for Adam Wood at Testo’s, Épernay, Two Boots, etc. on page 26.)

        I looked up the PAC when I got an invitation from Finch for a fundraiser at Épernay last month, and the fact that they were raising money to “Move Bridgeport Forward” only to spend it on all this crap offended me. I let it go because, hey, maybe it’s better for these guys to live large on donor dollars than on taxpayer dollars.

        But it turns out that the Courant went crazy when some State Rep from upstate spent $1200 on a hotel and plane ticket using his PAC, because it’s actually a serious violation of the law to use PAC dollars as a personal slush fund. It’s rare enough for something that pisses me off to actually be illegal (“the real crime is what’s legal”) that I thought I’d bring it up and see if any other OIB readers were interested.

        Sorry for the confusing links earlier.

    1. thegrackle, in order for anyone to do a search of campaign reports on the CRIS system, one needs the name of the PAC or political committee name; provide as many committee details.

  4. Finch is trying to gather up his Finch mob. He has been using forms of coercion to get some members’ support, including a job at the airport, a raise for another member and a job for another family member of the council.

    I hear that Ramon Larracuente has his thumb on the scale for the Stealers, Fates and Pleasures job. I can see him filling up his boat’s gas tank under the guise of calibrating the gas pump. Maybe then the soon to be former Police Commissioner can legally move in above Marty Kane’s Deli in Trumbull. This guy couldn’t even show up for his playground job with Recreation job a few years ago. This is so SAD(A)!

  5. Interesting tidbit in the Connecticut Post yesterday, a story written by Keila Torres about the grants payroll. It’s still on the paper’s website. According to Ms. Torres’ article,

    “Council President Thomas McCarthy … is deputy director of labor relations for the city. Although [former civil service director Ralph] Jacobs said McCarthy, D-133, had never been [administered the civil service test], the councilman claims he went through an interview process when he was hired. McCarthy is currently one of the unaffiliated employees on the existing grants payroll, labeled as an appointed employee.

    “Other councilmen allegedly all working in acting positions are Warren Blunt, D-135, the city’s director of environmental health; Richard Paoletto, D-138, acting deputy director of housing and commercial code enforcement for the Health Department; and James Holloway, D-139, permit supervisor in the Public Facilities Department.

    “Jacobs, who was hired as the city’s personnel director in March 2005 and fired this summer, said even if the grants payroll ceased to exist ‘… that doesn’t mean that illegal hires are not still an issue, because they are.’

    “Jacobs claims the process started by Fabrizi to update and organize the civil service office was ‘reversed’ by the Finch administration. ‘Immediately at the beginning of the Finch administration all of that ended,’ Jacobs said.”

    What is that phrase employed by U.S. Army officers? “Situation normal–all fucked up,” or SNAFU for short.

  6. I’m guessing that the state of Connecticut gives the city some sort of payment in lieu of taxes for the property that it owns in Bridgeport. This sort of thing works, but not as profitably as taxation. If the city actually got around to selling off all or most of its real estate holdings, a lot of revenue would be generated. Enough, and again I’m guessing, that the city of Bridgeport could operate as an entity independent of state aid. I would venture another guess: that so much tax revenue would be generated that Bridgeport would no longer have the highest property taxes east of the Mississippi.

    It is hard for people to get inspired to do something with their lives if the city’s government itself is dependent on what amounts to welfare provided by the state. Tax relief does not begin in the state legislature, in spite of the lawn signs distributed by one of the city’s freshman legislators. In Bridgeport, tax relief begins at city hall.

  7. TC I have no issues with what Reid said. I am a black man and find nothing offensive in what Reid said. As for Walsh I think his comments were a li’l bit overboard but he is no racist!!! I just think people in general need to be sensitive about what they say about others.

  8. Yes I would feel the same way I am tired of Republicans trying to tell us how we feel ’cause you guys sure as hell don’t know. The fact is that I take no offense to what Reid or Walsh said. And no one can tell me how I feel!!! At the end of the day the Republicans are going to try to take issue but how can they take issue when blacks don’t? To be honest with you I took more of an issue with Clinton saying what he did over the primary in 2008 and trust me Bill Clinton is not a racist he is loved not only by African Americans but also loved by Island Blacks too. Republicans need to sort out their issues because we all know that their chairman Steele was picked only because he is black and they wanted to send a message that they are being diverse. If someone paid me $1000 I still would not vote for that clown. I have family who lives in Baltimore Md and they all voted for Ben Cardon in the 2006 sen race in Md. So just because you’re black does not mean you will get the black vote because Steele did not even get 20% of the black vote in Maryland. More whites voted for Steele than they did for Cardon and more blacks voted for Cardon then they did Steele. Do you get the picture now it all comes down to belief of the candidate not color. The Republican party and some conservative Democrats have a hard time selling their beliefs to the American people.

  9. Republicans always want to fight something but when have they ever created something that should be passed? For that matter can some one tell me did Republicans have any plan of passing at any time health reform from 2000 to 2008? The answer is hell to the mother f no! Soon as Democrats take everything they have a plan and at least it’s better then nothing. Republicans just sit around and watch and then they like to fight every bill. It is such a turn-off if you ask me and that is why I do not vote Republican. Up until 2000 Chris Shays was a very very outstanding man for crying out loud people in my family voted for him all the time up until 2006 and 2008. This guy got brainwashed by the right-wing nuts and was a Bush defender and we all saw the results of that.

  10. I saw an ad by Russo bashing president Obama. I sure as hell know if he wins the nomination he cannot take that attitude and come to Bridgeport with it because that will get Obama voters angry. Russo is sucking up to the right-wing nuts right now so it does not surprise me. Russo is the only Republican that I can say I admire as of now.

  11. donj Who is you guys? Are you telling me the large turnout for the presidential election by blacks in 2008 was because of issues and not because Barack Obama was black?
    Look I just feel that everyone should be held to the same standards. In the Reid case they are not. In either case it doesn’t matter as Reid is trailing his Republican opponent by more than 20 points so it looks like he is gone at the end of 2010 anyway.

  12. donj: Tell me about the health care plan passed by the house and then the version passed by the senate before you say a bill of any sort is better than no bill. I would venture to say that not one senator has read the over 2,000-page senate version of health care. Right now they are meeting behind closed doors to come up with a final bill. I though the president said that these meetings would be open and the public would see the negotiations on CSPAN. BTW where are the doctors going to come from to handle 30 million more patients?

    1. Repeat to yourself: healthcare insurance is different from healthcare premiums/ funding!!!
      There are not 30 million more patients out there ready to descend on our system. Those are Americans, many of them very healthy because they are young, feel immortal, and/or have alternative ways of doctoring themselves when necessary and avoiding routine well care. For the next few years it appears that government is going to require expense money/funding/premiums for benefits that will not be immediately available, so there will be no rush into our system anyway. People want the best care that money can buy and medical science can deliver (especially when they actually need it) but they are not sure whether they want to pay the costs of such a system on a regular basis, by monthly premiums or as part of a tax levy, especially when no one is able to say with any certainty what the costs of such a system really are. Kind of crazy, but it is the American way of governance. By the way, thank God that Americans know more about cars than about insurance plans. That has caused leadership to talk about taxing “Cadillac plans”. Since much of our health care model seems to be coming from European countries, wouldn’t we be more accurate in describing Jaguar, BMW, Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini plans?

    2. Maybe the solution is more grants/scholarships to increase the number of doctors. Not screw the 30 million people who have no health insurance. TC, sometimes you sound more Republican than I care to hear.

  13. Palin signs on with Fox News
    By Howard Kurtz

    Sarah Palin, who regularly rips the media, is becoming a television pundit at a place where she’s likely to feel at home.

    A Fox News executive says the network will shortly announce that the former vice-presidential nominee is signing on as a contributor.

    Palin, who resigned as governor of Alaska last summer, will appear as a commentator on various Fox shows. She will also host an occasional program that will examine inspirational tales involving ordinary Americans.

    Palin will join Mike Huckabee as a Fox contributor who was also involved in the 2008 campaign. The exposure can only help Palin if she decides to pursue a 2012 presidential bid.

    At the moment, Palin makes pronouncements mainly through her Facebook page. The Fox connection would give her a platform on the nation’s top-rated cable news channel.

    Palin is extremely popular with her conservative base, which has fueled the sales of her best-selling memoir. But she is a divisive political figure who not only draws the ire of liberals but some Republicans, including staffers who deal with her during her run as John McCain’s running mate. Steve Schmidt, a top McCain strategist, said on “60 Minutes” last night that “there were numerous instances that she said things that were — that were not accurate that ultimately, the campaign had to deal with.”

    Hiring Palin could further boost the popularity of Rupert Murdoch’s network among conservative viewers. The network already employs former Bush White House aide Karl Rove and former House speaker Newt Gingrich as highly visible commentators.

    By 44 Editor | January 11, 2010; 1:38 PM ET

    1. Didja catch “60 Minutes” last night? Interesting segment on the selection of Sarah Palin for the veep spot. Here are a few passages from the transcript:

      Hillary Clinton was so confident she would become president, that a full year before the election she had already started planning for her transition into the White House.

      “That’s in a new book by reporters Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, who have also brought details to light about the Republican campaign; some of them directly contradict what Sarah Palin wrote in her book.

      Palin said she had been misunderstood and mishandled by top McCain staffers. The new book quotes McCain staffers saying Palin created most of the problems.

      John McCain’s chief campaign strategist Steve Schmidt had a major role in choosing Sarah Palin. Just days before the Republican National Convention, John McCain thought he’d be running with Joe Lieberman.

      Schmidt told CNN’s Anderson Cooper why McCain pivoted from Lieberman to Palin.

      “Roughly up to a week before the convention, we were still talking very seriously about Senator Lieberman. But once word leaked out that he was under serious consideration, the blowback was ferocious,” Schmidt remembered.

      “Ferocious,” because many conservatives thought Lieberman was far too liberal. Schmidt says they feared the Republican National Convention might reject him.

      McCain couldn’t risk that, so they needed a last-minute replacement.

      “So, suddenly you’re in a jam,” Cooper remarked.

      “We were,” Schmidt acknowledged.

      “That’s the state of desperation they’re in as they sit down with McCain that Sunday night over a dinner of deep fried burritos and say to him, ‘What about Sarah Palin?'” author John Heilemann told Cooper.

      “She gave a great convention speech. And we came out of that convention ahead in the polls,” Schmidt recalled.

      In public, Palin looked like the game changer McCain had wanted, but in private, the authors say she was struggling to learn too much too fast.

      “Her foreign policy tutors are literally taking her through, ‘This is World War I, this is World War II, this is the Korean War. This is the how the Cold War worked.’ Steve Schmidt had gone to them and said, ‘She knows nothing,'” Heilemann told Cooper. “A week later, after the convention was over, she still didn’t really understand why there was a North Korea and a South Korea. She was still regularly saying that Saddam Hussein had been behind 9/11. And, literally, the next day her son was about to ship off to Iraq. And when they asked her who her son was going to fight, she couldn’t explain that.”

  14. Where I’m from those things we don’t use. Those are for Suburban teens and we all know that. So check your facts before you guys talk ’cause your facts are all screwed up.

  15. “Look for Richard Blumenthal to be GOP State Chair Chris Healy’s favorite whipping boy.”

    The bad news is that Dick Bloomer is not going to be ‘only’ Chris Healy’s favorite whipping boy. I see Bloomer as a “whipping toy.”

  16. Someone should have sent Tom Kelly to the “committee of the whole” committee meeting with a laptop so we could have a play-by-play of what is going on.

  17. Quick abridged report from the field:

    Bob apologized.

    Evette accepted

    The entire Council will be going for cultural sensitivity training.

    Everybody said it was time to move on and get back to city business.

    I’ll leave the analysis to Lennie who was there.

  18. I would never believe that Councilman Robert Walsh is a racist (nor would I believe that about U.S. Senator Henry C. Reid of Nevada). Mr. Walsh is far too involved in making our city a better place. That is why he asks all the pointed questions. He wasn’t being obstructionist regarding the Steel Point project; from what I’ve read, Mr. Walsh is as aware as anyone that too many people make “getting away with it” (meaning something or anything) a sport, the greater motivator. I for one am glad that in the rush to get the project moving forward, someone was thinking about not giving away any leverage the city still has over the development.

  19. “The council took no formal action against Walsh beyond resolving to accept his apology and seeking a diversity training program for all council members.”

    Who is going to facilitate the diversity training program?
    Will the instructor be White, Black, or Hispanic?
    I suggest that there be one of each. Doing otherwise will only introduce council members to Whiteversity, Blackversity, or Hispaversity. Diversity training has been provided for a long time and yet the country and the world is still divided in every form. In order to provide effective diversity training, it must be done with a diverse group of instructors providing the training. This concept does not exist; except in the mind of Joel Gonzalez.

  20. I find it very interesting that one councilman attends every council meeting/committee meeting completely inebriated and no one (including Mayor Finch and Council Prez McCarthy) says a word. This same individual indulges during working hours and verbally abuses his staff. Larry Osborne works in the same building and ignores the problem. Why do some get away with this behavior and others are put through the wringer? Just find it interesting, that’s all.

  21. *** Thank god the “witch hunt” is over, bet Ms. Brantley will think twice about ever bringing anything personal to the council leadership again! *** The 131st search is on for past & new active city voters interested in running a T/C slate this fall against the present dictatorship & puppet committee. ***

  22. Good job!!! Like I’ve been saying there was no need to take Walsh’s comments overboard, everybody as a whole has got to phrase what they say a li’l better.

  23. *** Every “?” Republican & anti-Obama voter will be tuning in to see the new “color-commentary clown” do her best not to screw up on Fox News. *** In her new book, she blames everybody except the “Pope” for all her V/P campaign humorous blunders; however a new book out apparently written by the main man that was running the McCain campaign states nicely that she is as dumb as she looks, with no one to blame but herself! (wink) *** FORGETABOUTIT ***

  24. Lmao at Mojo’s comments. To think she was just one step away from being second in command if McCain had won is a scary thought. Not even Joel could stomach to vote for that ticket so he filled in the oval for Nader!

  25. *** You have to have a complete open & shut case to get anything more than a “hand slap” from the CT State’s Elections Enforcement Committee when it comes to absentees. Otherwise they will not conduct a good, real investigation on anything dealing with fraud, etc. *** This new political change book that’s out now has ex-president Clinton calling T. Kennedy the night after the Iowa Caucus pushing for his wife Hillary & stating that just a few years earlier, they would have had Obama serving them coffee? This is the Dem. ex-president that has an office in Harlem & is loved by so many people of color in general! *** Old Tiano saying, “white man born colorblind”! ***
