I'll tell you why. All of the BS aside. It's simply because Frank Vescera didn't like a graphic used for the story about his censure. That day he stormed into the UP offices and demanded a retraction. Retraction of WHAT? However, after consulting the New York Press Association, they advised to file a report because of the inappropriatness of the action and his position. Larry said no to that and said he was just blowing off steam. Then, the next day Frank goes on Talk of the Town radio show and personally attacks Larry. That night Larry spoke at the council meeting in favor of legislation to censure him. He was censured.

The Topix trolls (Joseph and Vescera) started then. But they really pumped it up (not like they have anything else to do) after Larry did the recent story about the primaries for committee. The whole story was fact checked, and anything that he may have needed to add context to, he should have responded to the several phone messages and emails that Larry sent. He didn't.

So here we are. Larry simply is doing his job and Frank is making it a personal crusade. He thought when Larry got the job there that it would be Frank's personal PR machine. Now he's mad that Larry is fairly dishing it out. There was no outrage on the Palmieri stories or the Emmert story. He actually LOVED those.

He used his radio show for 15 years to bash people, and now he can't even handle fair reporting.

He's like the little boy that was bullied and spoiled by mommy. Now he thinks he can get away with anything. He has no idea what kind of fire he's playing with.

My advice... Frank, Larry Joseph, and the rest of you...Just shut up and grow up. If you can't take the heat, resign the position.

As for those defending Larry, THANK YOU. But seriously, don't even respond. All it does is add fuel to the fire. I feel stupid making this comment. But seriously, it's three 70 year old men playing reindeer games with their computers.

@Truth, it starred way before that, ask Larry about his explosion on Vescera at Vesceras house on Mary St. this late spring. Also forgot to mention Larry flipping Frank off on camera at the last council meeting. They are both equally guilty, but I will not go on. Larrys messed this up, not Vescera.

I do agree with you one thing though- enough is enough. Who really cares? It is between those two.
come on

If we're going to go back to an argument in the spring, then how about going back to a tape of Vescera calling his Bosnian opponent a "blockhead." Or his taped conversations regarding many inappropriate comments? See this is what happens when people like him take things too far. Larry wasn't born yesterday and was raised to trust NO ONE in politics. He covers his arse at every angle. Because he knows that as soon as someone gets a bug up their arse, they start with the smears and lies. And his buddy Joseph has provided some of the best recorded material over the years. But you haven't seen Larry posting it to YouTube like Vescera did, have you?

And furthermore, Larry has nothing to lose in this situation. Which goes to show just how dumb these guys are. Larry's not running for anything and can careless about votes or popularity. So attacks on him are useless. They started a war with someone with nothing to lose. Worst mistake you could ever make. Do you really think Larry has any hopes of ever running for office again, other than a race to maybe split the vote? Of course not. But he'll be damned if he lets a bum like Vescera declare war on him over some petty garbage. And trust me, Vescera has no allies. One thing is for sure, this is one fight that Vescera will regret and Larry will never forget. And where Larry's so-called allies (Zecca, et al.) sided on this will never be forgotten either.

There will be no "sit downs" or making amends. This war will be finished even if it means they all (including Larry) go down in eternal political defeat.

Eternal political defeat? War? This is awesome grandiosity. I love it.

Still, you people do realize you're all talking about shitty little politics in podunk Utica NY?

There are wars going on right now. There are political struggles with real, high stakes going on right now. There are people who are real, real serious about eternal outcomes and ultimate defeats.

Get a hold of yourselves, fools. There's a world outside your precious egos.

You are absolutely correct!! He has already lost it (credibility, integrity, honor) a LONG time ago.

Because it's like watching a train wreck. You don't want to look, but you just have to.
