Readers Write: Blakeman unleashes a ‘Brownshirt Brigade’

Nassau Republicans have a long history of patronage as a first governing principle, reliably filling county offices with relatives and talentless cronies of no particular ability or qualification.

This is remember the party of Mangano, Skelos and Margiotta, pols who define political corruption.

Now, the empty suit with the plastic smile, chastised for insecurely pasting his name in large gold leaf letters everywhere he shouldn’t, wants to arm his cronies in some semi-official, semi-trained Brownshirt Brigade. What could possibly go wrong?
