  • GOP'S 'PURGE' GROWS - BOSS WANTS KT TO QUIT (New York State GOP Wants KT McFarland to Quit Race!)

    NY POST ^ | 6/7/06
    ALBANY - State GOP Chairman Stephen Minarik, who just knocked William Weld out of the race for governor, will now try to do the same with Republican Senate hopeful Katherine "KT" McFarland, The Post has learned. Minarik, backed by other GOP leaders, will publicly urge McFarland, a Reagan-era Pentagon official, to drop out of the Senate race today "in the interest of party unity," a source familiar with Minarik's thinking said. Minarik will urge GOP voters to rally around former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer, who defeated McFarland, 63 percent to 36 percent, at last week's party nominating convention, as the...
  • McFarland Campaign Fueled By Major Clinton Backers (OOPS!)

    McFarland campaign fueled by major Clinton backers YONKERS – A review of Kathleen McFarland's campaign reports filed with the Federal Election Commission reveal a very troubling fact for Republicans seeking to defeat Senator Clinton. A clear pattern has emerged whereby donors to Ms. McFarland are also big supporters of Senator Clinton, the DNC and other related leftwing entities. For example, the following McFarland donors also gave money to Sen. Clinton and the DNC: Lionel Pincus donated $4,200 to Ms. McFarland while giving Sen. Clinton $6,000 since 1999. Between 1997-2000, Pincus donated $300,000 to the DNC! Constance Spahn donated $500 to...

    YONKERS -- In November, New York Republicans need a maximum turnout to defeat Senator Clinton and win down ballot races. That's why a loose cannon like K. T. McFarland at the top of the ticket spells wipe out. K. T. McFarland is running on her resume. But her resume has a Jason Blair quality. It's phony. Her legalistic hair splitting makes Bill Clinton sound like a straight shooter. Read how Human Events found K. T. McFarland inflated her resume to claim she was the highest ranking woman in the Pentagon: "Her campaign evidently has been bragging about her being the...

    YONKERS -- The New York Post calls K.T. McFarland ‘kooky.’ How kooky? Well, maybe instead of running for Senator, she’s really auditioning for a Get Smart remake. In March, K.T. accused Senator Clinton of spying on her. The New York Post reported “Republican Senate candidate Kathleen “KT” McFarland (left) is bizarrely claiming that Sen. Hillary Clinton (right) has been spying in her bedroom window and flying helicopters over her house in the Hamptons.” (3/25/06) Then the facts came out; K.T. had hired private detectives – from the same firm the Clinton’s hired to spy on conservatives and Republicans -- to...

    ALBANY, May 10 — There are the children he fathered with a subordinate while he was still married to someone else. Add to that some charges of nepotism. And for good measure, throw in a top aide who pleaded guilty to sodomizing a 15-year-old boy. It is not a soap opera. It is opposition research, the dark political art known to practitioners simply as "oppo." Its subject is John Spencer, the former mayor of Yonkers, who is seeking the Republican nomination to challenge Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. The research is being rolled out by the campaign of a fellow Republican,...

    The former Mayor of Yonkers, John Spencer, raised eyebrows in Republican circles earlier this month when he hinted at a conspiracy. There was something fishy, he said, aboutthe sudden emergence of Kathleen Troia (K.T.) McFarland, like him a Republican seeking to challenge Senator Hillary Clinton.   “The Clintons are pretty slick. They’ll never have any fingerprints on it,” he said.   Mr. Spencer now says he was joking—“I was doing, like, a Charles Grodin routine,” he insisted—but his suggestion that Mrs. Clinton’s hidden hand has influenced the Republican primary process wasn’t far off. It’s just that far from conspiring against...

    ALBANY, N.Y. - A former Pentagon official under President Reagan said Monday she will seek the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's re-election bid this year. "I am running to be my party's nominee for the United States Senate from the state of New York," Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland wrote in a letter to supporters. "Toward that end, I have formed an exploratory committee, which I expect to upgrade to a full Senate campaign committee in the coming days." The move by the political neophyte could put her into a September primary against former Yonkers Mayor John...

    March 13, 2006 -- REPUBLICAN Senate hopeful Katherine Troia McFarland's declaration that she's not an evangelical Christian has prompted a major backlash from the state's leading evangelical organization. "This will definitely come up during her campaign because I, for one, will bring it up," the Rev. Duane Motley, leader of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, told The Post. "This will hurt her because probably the largest block of voters in the country are evangelical, and a significant number of them are in New York," said Motley, who described his group as the state's largest association of evangelical Christians, with 2,000...
  • New York Senatorial Candidate McFarland Says She Supports Abortion Rights With Restrictions

    Kathleen Troia McFarland (R), who is seeking the Republican nomination to run against incumbent Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y), in a recent interview said she supports abortion rights but also supports laws that require parental notification and a ban on so-called "partial-birth" abortion, the White Plains Journal-News reports. McFarland, who was a Department of Defense spokesperson during the Reagan administration, said she favors exceptions allowing abortion in cases that protect the health of the pregnant woman. "I think I am where the majority of the electorate is and the majority of the Republican Party as well," McFarland said (Blain, White...

    NEW YORK -- The top adviser to Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland said Friday that her rival for the Republican Senate nomination, former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer, lacked the credentials, knowledge and financial backing to mount a credible challenge to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. "It would be a very big mistake to think John Spencer _ no offense to John, who I guess was a decent enough mayor _ to move him to a level of where anyone is going to take him seriously as a U.S. Senate candidate," McFarland adviser Ed Rollins told The Associated Press. "Unfortunately, John Spencer wouldn't...

    March 23, 2006 G.O.P. Challenger to Clinton Inflated Résumé, Records and Interviews Suggest By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ When Kathleen Troia McFarland stepped forward as a Republican challenger to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, she was a relatively obscure figure with two intriguing claims to fame: She had worked on President Ronald Reagan's "Star Wars" speech and had been the highest-ranking woman at the Reagan Pentagon. But interviews with former Reagan administration officials and a review of documents show her claims were not entirely accurate. Though she helped write the "Star Wars" speech, its most famous passage — the one that announced the...

    NEW YORK -- It didn't take long before the wheels started coming off Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland's campaign to unseat Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Things got off to a promising start in early March, with favorable publicity and several national TV interviews for the wealthy, 54-year-old McFarland, a Reagan-era Pentagon official who spent the last 20 years raising a family and has never held elective office. But then McFarland was hit with embarrassing disclosures about her voting history, including her registering in two places and missing several elections. Records suggest she did not even vote in 1984, when Reagan, her...

    Jeanine Pirro is expected to quit her bid to unseat Sen. Hillary Clinton as early as tomorrow, prematurely ending what had been billed as one of the nation's marquee races. Just a few months ago, the smart, aggressive and charming Westchester district attorney was the darling of a Republican Party convinced she was the right candidate who - even if she couldn't beat Clinton - could at least slice into her high approval ratings. But now, Pirro, 54, is being written off as the first political roadkill of the 2006 election season. And Clinton never even had to throw a...

    ALBANY, N.Y. - New York's Republican Party county leaders recommended Monday that Jeanine Pirro abandon her struggling campaign to challenge Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and instead run for state attorney general. State GOP Chairman Stephen Minarik said no vote was taken but that was the consensus of the county leaders. Rockland County Chairman Vincent Reda said the support for a Pirro switch was "overwhelming." There was no immediate comment from the Pirro campaign. The county chairmen also voted in favor of having former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld run for governor in his native New York, Minarik said. However, that ballot...

    ALBANY, Dec. 12 - After weeks of messy public squabbling, leaders of the New York Republican Party met in a smoke-free back room here on Monday and reversed course, urging Jeanine F. Pirro to quit her bid to unseat Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and run for state attorney general next year. Ms. Pirro, the district attorney of Westchester County, immediately issued a statement rejecting the suggestion, saying, "I remain a candidate for U.S. Senate, but I greatly respect the opinion of the county chairs and their confidence in my abilities as a statewide candidate." The shift by the party came...

    The GOP is once failing to support a promising Republican Woman candidate for higher office . The New York GOP does not want her to run against Hillary Clinton for her U.S. Senate seat . Instead they want her to run for State Attorney General again . The reason seems that Pirro is not as fabulously weel funded as Hillary for a U.S. Senate Campaign . Also, Pirro's campaign got off to a messy start .it

    Gov. Pataki (l.) Mayor Bloomberg, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani join other officials in paying respects to slain Officer Daniel Enchautegui. Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro was seen giggling and chatting outside a Bronx church after the funeral Mass for slain Police Officer Danny Enchautegui - spurring outrage from cops. One officer brusquely told her to "shut up," prompting Pirro to zip her lips and snap to attention just after the flag-draped coffin holding Enchautegui was placed into a nearby hearse. While grim-faced Finest stood ramrod-straight, Pirro drew glares from the hero cop's fellow officers...
