1) Grace is now changing her name to Grace "Who's my daddy?" Meng because she claims that even though her father
has been bankrolling her campaigns, she has ALWAYS been independent of the soon-to-be-jailed crook.

2) She then falsely claims that the practice of "bundling" does not exist.

3) She just flat-out lied to the press yesterday. The following quote is from the web site City and State:

Assemblywoman Grace Meng responded to claims from her Republican congressional opponent, Queens Councilman Dan Halloran, about Meng's decision not to disclose her campaign bundlers.

"First of all, that's something we released a statement on already," Meng said, when asked about the charges by reporters, "and the response is pretty much the same for any candidate who understands campaign finance rules at the city, state, and federal level. There is no such thing as bundlers. It is something that is made up for political purposes."

Halloran's campaign is pointing out the fact that Meng's father, Jimmy, was recently arrested by the FBI for accepting bribes -- and may have raised money for Meng's campaign.

Meng, said: "We're doing what any other congressional candidate has done across the country,"

Halloran's spokesman Steven Stites responded to Meng's comments: "Assemblywoman Meng is playing a game of can you top this? First she won't disclose her bundlers. Now she says bundlers don't exist. Next, she'll say her money got delivered by a stork."

4) No, my friend. her daddy puts the money in a fruit basket - isn't that his method?

You're saying Cuomo's dad was a career theif and influence peddler like Jimmy Meng? It seems like apples and oranges here.

And, actually, this isn't a "Flushing" election. Only 40% of the district is Asian. Will they turn out and support even a shady Asian candidate?

Not if the Meng family is going to continue giving Asians a bad name.

I don't know about entrenched stuff, I just think the title of this posting is hilarious.

She actually had posters up saying her father was her moral compass, and then, suddenly, he gets arrested, the posters come down, and Grace declares she has "always" been independent of her own father, whose political position she took over (as well as his financial connections)after he was forced to resign.

Do you think the NY Times (greedy despespate crap rag it is) is embarassed they endorsed (another) Democratic crook?
