Four years ago political newcomer Ron Kim was swept into office after the nasty fallout caused by the Dwyer scandal in the old Curley administration. Tonight brought an end to that political career as former tough guy Ron Kim arrived 45 minutes late to his last scheduled City Council meeting. Looking subdued there were no public speakers to praise his leadership not a single cop or fireman appeared to thank him for fighting the good fight in there name. The Council accorded him lukewarm profunctionary thanks. The scene was much different two years ago when Mayor Keehn made her last appearance as Mayor as speaker after speaker heaped praise on Val of Arc for sacrificing herself to rid the city of
Kim’s career is pretty much over and all but the biggest diehard Keehnacs would concede that. His name will be little more than a bedtime story mothers will use to get their children to behave. “Listen to me or Ron Kim will get you.” But the other person who has lost almost as much as Kim is Saratogian reporter Andrew Bernstein. His biased one sided reporting was little more than editorials why Kim should be the next Mayor.
Today he hit a new low when he wrote on his personal blog.
“I saw Commissioner Kim talking with "anonymous" blogger John Tighe.
I did not stay to eavesdrop, as I couldn't be less interested in whatever Tighe has to say to the Commissioner, so beyond the fact that I saw them talking, I cannot comment on the tenor of the exchange.”
In one breathtaking sentence Bernstein showed that he is a Liar for what he saw was no discussion and that he has no interest in reporting anything that might show his political idol in a bad light. Later frustrated by comments that he disagreed with, he had Kim supporters supply anonymous comments that I John Tighe am a “Racist” I love the hypocrisy of this in which he belittles this blog and its readers because of their anonymity in commenting while allowing me to be called me a racist by his anonymous cronies . You should also know that any comments by me are banned from his blog so I am unable to answer these charges even though I have offered him an opportunity to comment on anything on this blog. Well since he will find few open doors and little contacts in City Hall next year outside of Skippy who I believe will fall in behind the Republicans he might have time to pen that Kim Biography.
