""Kaiman has denied knowledge of [the pay-to-play fundraiser] scenario, and prosecutors said they have no evidence to the contrary.""

Let's see what the defense brings to the party.

You can't get any work done in the Town of N. Hempstead or Huntington without "buying tickets to fundraisers". I'd like to see someone try to clean it up, but I doubt anyone cares enough or has the stones to try.

So it shouldn't be hard for Rosen to trot out an army of witnesses with fundraiser ticket stubs, right?

DA is going to look marvelously clueless...

Mansour Zarabi is a crook - he admits that. He is testifying to avoid prosecution - he admits that. I hope the DA has something up her sleeve because so far this "case" is carp. I hope that the DA gets sued for malicious prosecution. DA's have been running wild lately going after politically expedient cases while offering amnesty to drug dealers. It is pathetic.

Must be so, because the supervisor says he knows nothing ... nothing ... nothing.
