Ahhhh yes, our old friend Kevin Parker is at it again. The Brooklyn Senator, who we've profiled as recently as last week, gets a big, fat FAIL for his monumental meltdown in Albany yesterday.
Just to set the stage for you, Senator John DeFrancisco was questioning New York Power Authority nominee Mark O’Luck in the Senate Finance Committee meeting about a comment attributed to him in a February 2009 New York Times City Room blog post about minority business groups’ reaction to President Obama’s developing federal stimulus plans.
O’Luck had stated that if minority and women-owned business programs weren’t around, “white men and the connected would have access to nearly 100% of all city, state and federal government dollars spent. Before M/WBE Programs came along, non-minorities had their own affirmative action program, i.e. no blacks and women.”
DeFrancisco, in no uncertain terms, told O'Luck that he found his comments ridiculous.
That was enough to send Parker into his tirade. Things get interesting at about the 19 minute mark.
Keep in mind, this is what we get from the Senate Democrats. This is the type of person Antoine Thompson and Bill Stachowski sit with every day, making the decisions that affect the lives of you and I. Simply despicable.
