From the Buffalo News:
G. Steven Pigeon’s central role in last week’s Republican coup in the State Senate is coming back to haunt the Democratic operative on the home front.
Mayor Byron W. Brown on Tuesday abruptly canceled a major fundraiser for his re-election campaign after The Buffalo News raised questions about Pigeon’s connection to the event.
“We officially contacted Steve and canceled it,” Deputy Mayor Steven M. Casey said. “We are very concerned about the events in Albany.”
Pigeon, chief architect of B. Thomas Golisano’s attempt to remove the Senate’s Democratic leaders, was to hold the event June 25 in his Admiral’s Walk home on the Buffalo waterfront. The fundraiser, with tickets at $500 and $1,000 each, was to have included former Buffalo Comptroller Anthony R. Nanula and businessman Jon Williams as co-hosts.
One more reason not to support Brown just because “he’s gonna win.” When you support Brown, you’re not just supporting the nice man in the well-fitting suit — you’re also supporting Steve Casey, Steve Pigeon, Tom Golisano, Brian Davis, Michelle Barron . . .
