Maziarz Machine Kicks in on Downgrade, According to Destino Campaign

October 28, 2014

It appears the Maziarz political machine is in full gear these days, trying to make sure that the outgoing senator’s handpicked successor, Robert Ortt, is successful against Johnny Destino, ensuring the future of the Maziarz empire that he spent nearly 20 years putting together.

Informed sources say it was the Maziarz stamp on the SCOPE downgrade of Destino last week which Ortt himself, not SCOPE, announced with great fanfare.

The Destino campaign has been informed that Niagara County legislator John Syracuse, who is from Maziarz’s Newfane district, conspired with Scope’s John Peracciny to have SCOPE hand Ortt the Destino downgrade to use in his campaign.

“My opponent will stop at nothing to try and win the seat,” said Destino. This whole Scope downgrade conspiracy is another example of the kind of dirty tricks that his campaign has been playing from the start, including getting Republican help to land the Working Families Party line for Paul Brown to deny me that line on the ballot. Nothing is off limits to the Ortt-Maziarz political machine. My hope is that the public will see through this latest conspiracy and vote to end that kind of politics on November 4th.

Destino, who signed SCOPE’S pledge to support efforts to repeal the Safe Act, was initially denied the supposedly non-political group’s highest A+ rating (given to all candidates to sign the pledge) in their blatant attempt help their candidate, Ortt, win the seat to pick up where Maziarz left off.

Destino has consistently stated that he would have voted against the Safe Act bill because of several unconstitutional provisions but nonetheless has been criticized for supporting some of its more common sense provisions such as enhanced penalties for responders and illegally carrying guns onto school properties.

Destino said “there is just no limit to what my opponent’s supporters will do to ensure that the Maziarz machine lives on after the senator was forced into retirement by a federal probe into his campaign finances.”
