Hey Staten Island! Wake up! Staten Island is one of NYC's five boroughs -- home to cops, firefighters and a mix of hard working blue collar and white collar families. Staten Island was hit real bad on 911. They have no clue how dirty the Working Families Party is. But we do.
The Democrats are a racketeering organization using their proxies like the Left wing Working Families Party (how ironic), ACORN, and community organizing organizations to steal elections and usurp the will of free men. (more here)
The NY Post came out with this story on the Working Families Party and Debi Rose connection. We must purge these criminal politicians and this party from our local and state governments. Rose appears to be assisting illegal activity and trafficking, scamming the campaign finance system. She is pleading the fifth as the records will, ahem, incriminate her.
Working families have no greater enemy than the Orwellian and cynically named "Working Families Party" -- these commies are the scourge of hard working men and women and families.
A City Council hopeful won't cough up documents related to whether the Working Families Party is scamming the campaign finance system -- because the case could involve "criminal liability," according to documents released yesterday.
The bombshell development was revealed at a court hearing where lawyers for the WFP and the campaign of Staten Island candidate Debi Rose tried to get a suit against them tossed.
Former Giuliani administration Deputy Mayor Randy Mastro, the lawyer opposing the Rose campaign, called it an "extraordinary development."But last night, Rose tried reversing course, backing off her campaign's argument against revealing the records based on the Fifth Amendment, which protects against self-incrimination.
"If my attorney objected to the motion on the grounds of the Fifth Amendment, as some reports indicate, that is not my position and I will instruct him to withdraw that objection," Rose said.
She still opposes the release, however.
In yesterday's hearing, the judge didn't rule on a request to dismiss the suit by a group of voters claiming they were disenfranchised by the way the WFP's political arm, Data and Field Services, operates.
The first-of-its-kind suit, which Mastro says he's doing free of charge, comes as the WFP has been briskly increasing its influence in city races.
Rose's move to block the release of the campaign documents on Fifth Amendment grounds was revealed in an affidavit filed by the plaintiffs.
The WFP and Rose had tried Thursday to buck a discovery request saying they had to produce documents and campaign finance records.
A lawyer for the campaign said Rose's treasurer, David Thomas, wouldn't produce them because they "may implicate criminal liability and his client would therefore have Fifth Amendment rights protecting him from having to make any such compelled disclosure," according to the affidavit, which quoted a deputy clerk in the Appellate Division.
Even Larry Mandelker, a lawyer for Data and Field Services, expressed surprise in court yesterday. He said, "I was very struck by the statement that was made by the counsel for the campaign. But that's not my client . . . I heard it, and I noted it."
Debi Rose from Staten Island is frequently covered in Tom Good's NextLeftNotes site. Members of his group have even participated in campaigning for her. (hat tip Tom)
I have not had time to research them all, but I urge Atlas readers to start looking into the links to see what we can find.

UPDATE: Free thinker wrote me:
The Staten Island Democrat Party has an open door policy towards Marxists and radical black activists. They are involved in the Rose campaign and in almost every other Staten Island Democrat campaign. People have no idea how bad the situation is. Hard-core Marxists have taken over the Democrat Party on the local level and on the national level. Obama's operation is no surprise to me. I've seen it coming for many years.
