Michael Arcuri's campaign for Congress is at a standstill. With nothing much coming from Mike Arcuri himself (last online press release a month ago, last "breaking news" almost two weeks ago), whatever can Arcuri for Congress supporters do? What, especially, can the pro-Arcuri blogs do, when Michael Arcuri won't give them anything of substance to write about?
Time for them to investigate dissenting blogs again. Sigh.
It's been a long while now since the webmaster of the Oneida County Democratic Committee's web site announced that my days of blogging were all over. He had investigated me and come up with the startling conclusion that I write for a lot of blogs - shocker!. Of course, I never said that I didn't, but the urge in Oneida County to eliminate my online voice, as someone who wasn't a member of their Arcuri fan club, was so desperate that they had to come up with something.
It didn't work, of course. We still have our free speech rights.
Now, the same person is going after another blogger who doesn't particularly like Michael Arcuri, writing about the effort to expose that blogger's true identity. When your candidate's campaign is faltering, go after the bloggers, I guess.
It would be much more pertinent, I think, to get the perspective from an Arcuri campaign insider about why the Arcuri for Congress campaign has ground to a near halt for the last month. Maybe an article explaining what Arcuri is doing with all that money that was donated to his campaign, given that nothing is happening, would be a start. Has the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee begun to regret its support for Arcuri yet? Now THAT would be a story.
It is very difficult to write about the do-nothing Arcuri campaign these days, I know. But, you Oneida County Democrat, try. You have the inside scoop, right? So tell us... is there nothing going on inside the Arcuri campaign?
Stop trying to silence other voices, and ask instead why Arcuri's voice has become so silent.
