He'd sue for WHAT damages? He doesn't have any monetary damages from this whole thing.

Besides the point that Hendricks and Barry probably don't have twenty cents between them to their names.

To me it appears as though Egomaniac might be right about Fiorini using the DA's office for his own benefit. I suspect Fiorini harassed DA until something was done. Cant you picture the pompous Fiorini demanding an investigation or else? Too bad DA has no spine and decided to waste tax payer money instead of telling Fiorini to take a nap. Fiorini reminds me of the little boy on the playground tattling to a teacher because someone called him a bad name. Sure the little boy can be annoying but it up to us responsible adults to teach him how to socialize with others and not to enable his immature behavior.

If Fiorini testified in front of the grand jury that he is not having an affair with Donna Vitagliano, then he committed perjury. Too bad the DA wont pursue the perjury.

It seems to me that you know Fiorini very well, by your descriptive remarks. I will venture that he and the DA were extremely surprised to find themselves up against Bob Julian and Emil Rossi when they walked into court for the hearing.
It will quickly become evident that this is not going to be the 'sweep it under the rug' railroading envisioned by the Chairman and the DA.
There are now two 'heavyweights' in the ring with the local 'flyweights'. It will be interesting to see when this becomes a conflagration out of McNamara's and Fiorini's control.
Stay tuned!

yea i am sure they were both pissing down their leg lol. must be bob julian is still a little upset when the chairman refused to purchase all new furniture for his office when he became a judge. also if you really did your homework you would realize that bob julian was a huge part in orchastrating the 1 dollar lease when he was the majority leader and still to this daycommends the county executive for his dealings with anfd the 1dollar lease with insight house. so it will be interesting when and if he brings up the 1 dollar lease in court. as he knows as a lawyer paper trails are easy evidence. also mr. convertino stop acting like you know whats going on . you are just a bumb who got dumped and can't handle it stop thinking you know what you are talking about

Target Truth I agree wholeheartedly the corrupt in Oneida Co. government are use to doing things their way which loosely translated means doing anything they want even if it is unethical. Also, they are not used to anyone standing up to them. Hopefully Hendricks' and Barry's attorneys call Vitagliano and Fiorini as witnesses and ask them if they are having an affair to which they will probably state no. Then the attorneys should call the many that know the affair is going on. If the affair is proven, then one of the allegations in the Fiorini letter is no longer an allegation but instead a fact. Tanoury has already admitted he had a picture of Fiorini's car outside of Vitagliano's house. As mentioned by someone else why would Tanoury take a picture of Fiorini's car unless he was going to use the picture for something. I am assuming Fiorini does not drive some sweet looking ride. Also, more importantly why did Tanoury keep the picture on his cell phone? Now the letter making allegations turns into a letter stating facts. Fiorini was having an affair with Vitagliano and Tanoury was going to bribe Fiorini.

That picture got Fiorini to abstain from voting for the IH $1 sweetheart lease deal. How much influence did Fiorini have on the vote - even if he abstained? Were other past issues regarding IH ifluenced and, what has Picenti done to warrent hand delivered gifts from DV? The CEO of a not for profit can afford to buy a lot of gifts with a 1.7 million dollar profit from last year. Yet, we focus not on possible corruption but on the bumbled effort to expose it.

Watch, I think this is all going to bite Tanoury on the butt more than Barry & Hendricks.

I still can't figure out why anybody would take a picture of a car in someone's driveway, other than wanting to use it to embarrass or blackmail them. Tanoury still han't provided an answer to that question.

Donna, it sounds like you have a real personal issue here. The ADA, DA, CE, Chairman, Legislators, CEO and everyone else under the sun has clearly stated there was no blackmail or illegal activity by Tanoury. Yet you still want to focus on him. Sounds like you have something personal against him. He said he took the picture and it's not illegal to do so. So what is your issue unless you are somehow personally affected or have something against him.

From what I gather, Tanoury is the smallest player in this whole thing. He's a nobody that got some stupid allegation thrown at him by some dipshit from Cornhill that was mad because he lost to Tanoury. Why aren't you concerned with the real issues? And what do you mean by it's going to bite him in the butt? Is that some kind of threat? He has been 100% cleared. Sorry if you wanted something different, but guess what? Just because YOU don't LIKE someone doesn't mean they have done anything wrong. Grow up. And what's with the Donna name? Are you DV or just trying to imply something? Seems like she is the one that has some explaining to do. She is the CEO of a non-profit that receives millions in taxpayer money. She shouldn't be hanging up on reporters, giving gifts to the CE or doing whatever with the Chairman. But I guess that is all ok in your world. But god forbid someone question that. Just shut up because you are sounding more and more stupid.

I truly like your thought process on this. Although GF's abstaining from the vote is only one vote, he does influence any legislation coming out of caucus. So, he does hold power over those legislators.
Your implication that the DA is doing GF's bidding on the letter issue and ignoring the real issue of possible corruption may also be right on the money.
The DA and GF may have opened a door for the truth to materialize by allowing Bob Julain and Emil Rossi into the picture. Don't think that these two 'heavyweights' will overlook the whole picture now that they are in play. GF and the DA may rue the day that they took on this pair in court.

The obvious is stated here. Do we have to wonder why OASAS and the Attorney General allow this corruption to thrive? Let's not forget, when the $1 DEAL was coming up for discussion, the OD reported that Picente called OASAS and their top legal people rushed to attend an evening meeting in UTICA support it. The $ DEAL is just the tip of the ice berg.
It's just like cps they get paid to steal children and put them in foster care do you know how much money cps makes off this,the same with insight house it's all about money ,not how they can help peolpe but how they make money off peoples misfortune or in hardtimes.

CPS constantly breaks the law and so do some judges,as long as they make money they will break the law.

Again, what was Tanoury's purpose in taking the picture? You're not giving me an answer Karma/Larry.
