In fact, the whole scuttlebutt about this race is based on Mike’s problem with Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno and Senator Serph Maltese, Joe said.
When asked if that made him a pawn, Joe replied, “I would be a pawn if I said I’m running. and I’m not going to do that [yet].”
Speaking of pawns and pieces, Addabbo’s longtime chief of staff Frank Gulluscio has taken a new job as District Manager of Community Board 6 located…in Serph’s district. Hmmmm.
Joe said the move was made two weeks ago, before he learned of his rumored race against Serph from a Times reporter.
Somebody call this guy.
