Bart Haggerty with Serph, Sorta [updated]

Posted by azi on February 8, 2006

Bart Haggerty, one of Mike’s key GOP allies in Queens is siding with Serph Maltese.

“I’m going to be supporting whomever is the Republican candidate,” he said. “Most important thing for Republicans is to make sure we maintain control of the Senate.”

Partisanship seems to be trumping revenge here.

“As much as I dislike Serph,” said Bart, “I don’t think taking him down solves anything.”

Comment Response
Bart, who is embroiled in a lawsuit and ongoing campaign to oust Serph as county leader, wanted two points made clearer. First, the headline didn’t indicate that Bart will support the Republican nominee, which may or may not be Serph. Secondly, Bart does not in any way, shape or form support Serph for re-election as county chair. Splitting hairs? Eh. By the way, who is Bart’s lawyer for that case against? Brooklyn Democratic Senator Martin Connor.
