Anatomy of a "Deal?"

Somewhere along the way to Assemblyman Lloyd "The Bachelor Wannabe" Levine endorsing his longtime Chief of Staff Stuart Waldman for his soon to be termed out seat (a seat the Waldman was and is far more qualified for than Levine could ever hope to be) insiders said a deal was made that threw the loyal Waldman under the proverbial bus.

The alleged deal goes like this. Levine, locked in a tough primary race against fellow Assemblymember Fran Pavley for a State Senate seat, needs some juice to have a shot against the popular Pavley. So, along with his mentor and daddy - political strategist Larry Levine - Lloyd goes to local king maker Congressman Howard Berman.

The tale continues. Yes indeed Howard will give his blessing to young Lloyd. But there's a price. Levine must retract his endorsement for Waldman to succeed him and transfer it to Berman's protege, Bob Blumenfeld.

Then in a move that baffled many at the time, Levine unceremoniously pulls the endorsement and fires Waldman from the job he held and excelled at for many years - several of those years with Levine's predecessor Bob Hertzberg.

Though Levine issued statements that hinted no deal was made; visit Levine's website and indeed - Berman's endorsement is prominent!

So tell us - there was no deal?

By the way - can anyone tell us why Lloyd has a legal defense fund with contributions from the likes of AT&T?

Because shit flows downhill and Levine Jr. likely learned all of his tricks from Levine Sr.

After Levine Sr. got fined for Levine Jr.'s previous race, who knows what they are pulling now.

So all this excuses Waldman's current mania for kissing the butts of anyone he can find who has an axe to grind with Little Levine? How about the tax-dodging backyard dog breeders he recently regaled with an anti-Lloyd diatribe? What a great, upstanding crew to have on your side.

Lloyd: try KFC. If you work hard they might even promote you to manager.

Levine made up stories about Waldman to make his firing look justifiable but it was a lie. Levine sold him out to help himself and allegedly even had his dad circulate mailers for Bob with Levine's name on it before the firing was done. How do you explain that? Pretty soon this page will read "Former Ass-emblymember Levine"

Is there a connection between Mitch Englander and Larry Levine? I wouldn't doubt it. Both of them are shady, creepy, killer-type (nothing to brag about) campaign managers.

I want to know why people in my council district (CD 5) hate Englander so bad? What did he do over here to make people so angry?

It it's true that he's a campaign manager then why does he work for Greig Smith?

Zuma, will you check that out? Why do activists in CD 5 hate Englander? Did Greig and Weiss do a deal of some kind? What is the story?
