WIVB: Aiming at Delano, Hitting Kuzma

I’ve been out of town, so I missed last week’s report on Channel 4 about the two charges of election fraud against former Buffalo Police detective Dennis Delano, who’s running for Cheektowaga town justice. I haven’t spoken to Delano or his opponent, James Vallone, so I’m not going to speculate on whether of not Delano’s nominating petitions are valid or not.

But watch this WIVB video and pause at the 31-second mark, where the camera shoots a legal complaint:

That complaint is filed against Mike Kuzma, who’s running against State Senator Bill Stachowski in the Democratic primary. You can see his name there. That’s not the complaint against Delano at all. Kuzma’s signatures are also being challenged, too, but they’re entirely different cases.

So Channel 4 pulls a two-fer here: They shoot a piece about Delano’s case, and drag in Kuzma’s for good measure. They couldn’t find the right paperwork?

    I don’t understand why Mike Kuzma would be committing fraud in the Cheektowaga Town Justice race. He has always seemed like such a nice, honest fellow. I guess you never know. Maybe he just snapped under the pressure of running for the State Senate. Now that I think about it, there really can’t be that many opportunities to commit fraud in a judicial race when you are running for the Senate in a different district.

    Why is Lenihan in this clip? Did he help Kuzma commit fraud? Who does his hair?

    Vallone is an asshole.

    Vallone sucks. Jerk off.
