Recent News on the Kuhl/Massa Race

Filed under: 2006 Campaigns,Eric Massa,New York State,Randy Kuhl — theruralpatriot @ 12:54 pm

Hat tip to The Fighting 29th for sourcing the following recent articles on the Kuhl/Massa Congressional race:

THE CHOICE IS YOURS From Steuben County’s The Courier
Spitzer backs Massa in Canandaigua From the Finger Lakes Times
It’s a sprint to the wire for Kuhl, Massa; From the Olean Times Herald

The Fighting 29th is also reporting that President Bill Clinton will be in Rochester on Monday “to rally the faithful” and although Massa’s Monroe County schedule is not yet posted for tomorrow, we can probably safely assume that he’ll be showing up at the event.

Rochester Turning reports the following:

Former NATO Commander – General Wesley Clark to attend Massa for Congress rally


And, regarding President Clinton’s Rochester visit:

* Monday, November 6th
* 10:30-11:15AM (Please arrive a little early)
* Rochester International Airport, Scottsville Road entrance

More details to follow.



  1. In a recent letter to Randy kuhl, posted on his web site….Eric Massa said the following.
    “It’s one thing for Randy Kuhl to keep mum as the Congressional leadership shortchanges veterans with unfair cuts,” declared Massa. “It’s a whole different matter to remain silent in matters of child safety.”
    Now the plot thickens.
    A three-page “Affidavit in Support of Petition to Stay Arbitration” was sworn to under oath by Eric Massa on August 25. The affidavit is a list of reasons why he fired Sanford Dickert as the campaign manager of Massa for Congress.
    It seems Mr Massa has some pointed questions to answer.
    This information just became public, days before the elction..but it’s getting around fast.

  2. Eric has been very forthcoming with this information which Republicans are exploiting for their own good. This is nothing like the myriad scandals which have come to be the norm for many Republicans. This is another opportunity for desperate campaigns to sling mud in the hope of gaining an advantage. I can’t blame the Republicans. Mud slinging is one of the things they do best. That seems to be their forte. They have no plan or vision, but they are good at dividing the electorate. We’ll have to see if folks fall for it this time around.

  3. Heard any good divorce stories lately? If it wasn’t ok with Kuhl in 2004, this is not ok now.

  4. Tom, the Fighting 29th site has several posts addressing this topic. I advise anyone who wants to discuss this to go over to that site, read the posts and comments, (Mr. Dickert himself has commented), and discuss it over there.

    “Rottenchester” has taken time to dig through available documents and it is a subject best discussed with those who are more knowledgeable than I am. If you read through it, you will see that nobody is implying any sexual misconduct. Please don’t spread misinformation or innuendo; I try to run a fact-based site.

    I’m the one who edited out major portions of your comment.

    Please don’t hijack posts with unrelated topics. If another comment is posted by ANYONE regarding this legal matter on any other posts that are unrelated to the issue, I will, from now on, delete the complete comment.

  5. Massa didn’t alert the authorities because he found out about the liquor a few days after he fired the campaign manager and the manager left town. The 16-year-old boy was his son, and we can only assume that whatever happened didn’t rise to the level of being reportable.

    The person in question was employed by the Massa campaign for 6 weeks, and actually worked a little over a month (due to leaves he took). Massa fired him before he even found out about the allegations mentioned.

    I’ve read all the documents filed in the case, and there’s really nothing there.
