Either Gallagher is the best actor since Sir Lawrence Olivier or Tom Ognibene is the worst judge of character known to man kind. Wasn't Gallagher his chief of staff for the entire time Ognibene was city Councilman? Didn't Tom Ognibene vigorously defend Gallagher during his legal tribulations resulting from a tryst with an intoxicated woman?
The above statements are categorically true, but now the Daily Politics is reporting that Ognibene has changed his tune
""That is absolutely, 100 percent, 1,000 percent Dennis Gallagher," Ognibene said of the mailer, which he rejected as "absolutely ridiculous.
"He has totally lost control. He resents the fact that I'm running for his seat," Ognibene added. "When you're dealing with a deeply neurotic person, I don't even try to explain his conduct."
Elizabeth Benjamin also reached out to Dennis "the puppet master" Gallagher to get his thoughts on the matter:
Gallagher, meanwhile, called Ognibene's accusations "absolutely, unequivocally untrue."
"I think the candidates ought to focus on the issues that are pending in the district and stop dragging this race into the mud," Gallagher said. "I consider Tom Ognibene a friend. He's a good man. If there's a falling out, then I think it's on Tom's side."
