In 2010, the Supervisor of the Town of Ulster, Jim Quigley woke up to see a story in the Daily Freeman. It seems that after working with a young man named Jeremy Blaber and trying to help him out, the two men had a falling out. Jim ended up leaving him a voice mail wherein he used profanity and expressed a great deal of anger and frustration toward Blaber.
Blaber leaked the voice mail to the Daily Freeman and thus there was a story. Click HERE to read that story.
Fast forward to 2013. Mayor Shayne Gallo, Corporation Counsel Zweben, and Jeremy Blaber had a conversation in the Mayor's Office. The conversation turned heated and both men swore at each other. Unbeknownst to the other two men, Blaber taped the conversation and again leaked it to the Freeman.
Now, yet another story appears in the Freeman. Click HERE to read that story.
First, there is an interesting additional part of the story with Mayor Gallo. Mayor Gallo says that the tape given to the Freeman has been edited and does not contain the comments from Blaber that really got things heated. The Freeman reports:
“During the course of the tape, he conveniently left out that he told me to go f--- myself,” Gallo said. “He conveniently edited out that he denied using drugs and admitted his drug use. He conveniently edited out that he has been driving a car without a license upon his return to duty,” Gallo said.
Second, I must ask a question. Considering the current story involving Gallo and Blaber and the story a few years ago with Quigley and Blaber, does anyone begin to see a pattern developing?
