Setting The Record Straight With Mr. Ruocco

East Haven Politics

It's taken me sometime to figure the right words to describe how I feel about what has and his threatening comments back in December 2011. Mr. Ruocco obviously has some very serious issues. First, for not feeling any remorse for what he has done. Secondly, acceptance of accountability for his actions. Lastly, for not only embarrassing himself but his family, his fellow Democrats and the residents of the Town of East Haven.

I find it incredulous that Mr. Ruocco would find the audacity to actually justify his actions because I wrote articles that he found personally offensive. He actually came up to me at one of the Board of Police Commissioners meetings and tried to intimidate me by stating that what I write is liable and slander. I challenge anyone to find one thing I report as liable or slanderous. I report the truth and the facts and because they do not favor Mr. Ruocco or the people he tries to defend, he finds it offensive. What Mr. Ruocco fails to realize or accept is that I also do the same thing to the Republicans when they step out of line. The last resignation I called for was for Mayor Maturo, a Republican.

What is more comical is his efforts to explain himself. Little ole me, affectionately known to Gene as "Danny Boy" is what drove him to "his breaking point" to put me in my place. Just who does Gene Ruocco think he is? Is he that smug and arrogant to believe he himself is the moral authority for us in East Haven? Then Mr. Ruocco goes on accusing me of a desperate attempt to damage his political and personal reputation within the East Haven Community and making a big thing over a foolish thing. The only thing Mr. Ruocco got right in that whole statement was that it was a foolish thing, the damage to him politically and personally is all self-inflicted just ask around Town Mr. Ruocco.

Mr. Ruocco in his defense also seems to single me out that he would never resign his leadership role because of a person like me. You see, Mr. Ruocco and others find people like me very dangerous to their survival in the political world. Because of the great world of blogging the traditional ways of politics have been exposed for what they are and Mr. Ruocco and others can't handle the truth and the facts. Their ways of burying the truth and twisting arms are exposed and people then find out who their leaders really are. In an ironic twist Mr. Ruocco, an ill advised user of the internet thought he could hide behind surnames, fictitious names and spew his hate and disdain for those who opposed his view. Oh how he probably wishes he never did what he did but to continue to try to justify his actions just shows he's nothing more than a scurvy little spider in the whole vast configuration! How's that for a movie quote Mr. Ruocco? it's from "It's A Wonderful Life" an American Classic of the honest, humble man who inspires to care about people instead of his own personal agenda.

In closing, this sad but enlightening chapter on Mr. Ruocco should be a lesson for all that when you continue to trounce on peoples will and their rights it will come back to bite you. Mr. Ruocco will have to spend the rest of his days here in East Haven as "Josy or Mr. Wales" and it's a rightful characterization of him because he tried to use his power, his influence and his muscle to control yours and my will. I am certainly not perfect nor do I ever claim to be but when I do wrong I will stand by it and admit it and when I am wrong I don't act like a punk and thumb my nose at everyone else and tell them it's their fault. Mr. Ruocco should do the right thing and resign from public service, period and then seek the necessary counseling to help him cope with whatever is disturbing his soul.

Jocobo Arbenz states on EH Patch on Monday May 14th the following…. "Following the town's money through to the end, to it's ultimate resting place, be it to a bank account for some LLC partly owned by a town employee, laundered back into a campaign "fund", to some phoney overtime slips, or even down to a locked safe in a mobster's basement, following the money will always lead to the root of all evil. Following the money will set the record straight. Follow the money Feds. Follow the money." Here is hoping that he has proof as to what he is saying since a phone call has been made to the feds and they should be checking this out soon. Once the preliminary info is gotten he should be contacted and then let's see what he has to say.

Good work Don Cheech. I knew there were stool pigeons in town will would sing at the drop of a hat. Put the heat on! Independent forensic accounting of every single dollar coming in, going out over the last 12 years.

What if, Hypothetically of course I was to suggest that " Jacobo " is actually a woman.. Quite possibly a Lawyer / Attorney... Whom may or may not have been involved with the Town of East Haven at one time ?

I'd say.......Patti cake, Patti cake baker man. Cooked up a story and fry in in a pan.
Luigi (the original) May 14, 2012 at 05:07 PM
No worries here my friend. Nothing to hide, no hands in any cookie jar (except for my own chocolate chip toll house at home). You however may have some worries.......good luck with that.
Luigi (the original) May 14, 2012 at 05:09 PM
This story has gotten seriously off track. Julie, I hope you can look into the allegations made here today by Jacko and get some confirmation, one way or another. It seems to me either way, truth or not, there's one heck of a story to be had!......
Luigi (the original) May 14, 2012 at 05:38 PM
This thread has gotten off course, so I thought I would take a moment to help steering it back onto the subject. It is NOT about "alleged" crooked politician laundering money. It IS about a LYING HYPOCRITICAL politician, one who has been proven to use intimidation tactics and name calling to stifle his opposition. One who in open forum calls others "cowardly" only to be the same thing himself, that he purports to hate.........

If you stopped drinking your swill, would you still be such a shill? just asking......
Bob Fawkes May 14, 2012 at 07:56 PM
Following the money they found, How it all went around and around, A buck siphoned here and a buck siphoned there, Millrated townsfolk, none the worse for the wear..
CitizenVoice May 14, 2012 at 08:39 PM
Quick on the phone to the Feds, aren't ya?! Maybe you should have read Jacobo's comment just a teeny weeny, little bit better: "....to its ultimate resting place, BE IT to a bank...." Donny, what do you suppose "be it" means in that sentence? I took the statement to be a well thought out speculation, certainly not an accusation. What's up with people becoming so cop-happy in here lately? And all the "Julie this" and "Julie that." Is this what the school yard squealers have grown up to be? I've never seen a blog like this.
DonnaR May 15, 2012 at 02:18 AM
Who me matter: Yup that is who Jerko is.
DonnaR May 15, 2012 at 02:18 AM
Can't ya just hear it in the posts.

Serves a purpose, to divide, confuse, distract from the real issues. Bitter Bitter angry Bird.
Ann Della Camera May 15, 2012 at 03:35 AM
Good going Charles, proves you are one of the few on here with guts. Howver, Jokebo, seems to know a lot, would love to him now have to prove all her states. Might be some suprises for the DTC. One never knows.
Ann Della Camera May 15, 2012 at 03:43 AM
Luigi< again well said to the point. I agree Rocco crossed the line in name calling. He lost any little class he had in the eyes of many. I think the points you have made here have been good and honest. I have never seen you attack anyone on here. The shills are worling hard to attack you , me Rose, Lisa, why? because they know we speak the truth. I for one am sure you are your own person, as am I. Like you no one tells me what to say, or do. I have my own mind. Congrats, for telling it like it is.
Ann Della Camera May 15, 2012 at 03:44 AM
Jokebo, you looking in the mirrow again
Luigi (the original) May 15, 2012 at 09:03 AM
Thank you Ann......that's appreciated. Keep up the good fight!
Luigi (the original) May 15, 2012 at 09:57 AM
What a difference a year makes. When suffering from "shoe on the other foot syndrome" or "foot in mouth disease" one should consider meat shoes! ...just saying (if it smells hypocritical.....). http://easthaven.patch.com/articles/anonymous-commenting-brings-out-the-worst-behaviors Check it out for yourself.......
Angels Among Us May 15, 2012 at 01:23 PM
I really feel bad for you people... you sound very bitter and soul stressed. I hope you find the serenity and peace that you seem to so desperately need. The truth will set you free.
Lise Cavallaro May 15, 2012 at 01:32 PM
Thanks Ann! I don't believe I have ever personally attacked anyone either. If anything, people go into long winded diatribes about why our opinion is wrong and theirs is right.
Luigi (the original) May 15, 2012 at 02:21 PM
You are right Angels (star) We ALL hope Mr. Ruocco (Josy) find the serenity and peace that he seems so desparately to need. We think the "truth" has set him free....... Free from the need to post here on Patch using those shill names he's claimed to hate so much. Which of course led to a total lack of credibility for him from now on. Maybe he should try Facebook.
Who Me Matter !!! May 15, 2012 at 02:49 PM
It's quite apparent that you don't live in East Haven.. If you lived in a town, where every time you turned on the News it just so happens your town is the featured story !!! Our Mayor, made a complete Jack Ass out of himself. Not just locally but Nationally. A police force under extreme non-stop scrutiny, Which i'm sure allows them to do a stand up job ... Democrat's & Republican's being such obstinate idiots & Hell bent on shoving it up the one anothers @#$hole to the point that they can see when they brush their teeth... We can be assured they'll do a great job together !!! And so much more, Welcome to the Circus !!! (Queue Ringling Bro's Theme) So yeah, I'd bet good money you'd be bitter, pissed & stressed out too.. That's the truth & trust me ain't nothing free about it.. Ask a taxpayer !!!
Luigi (the original) May 15, 2012 at 03:38 PM
Citizen, The inference none the less is an accusation. Well crafted or not. Why do you feel the need to speak for Jacko? (any relation?). No one needs to drop any dimes, it seems Jacko did that him/herself already. Unless anyone is foolish enough to think the FEDS don't monitor the Patch. Whatever.....accusation in the guise of speculation is a common practice of folks attached to the last administration. Like rats and thieves they dance around their gypsy fire. Chanting like morons in the dark!
Bob Fawkes May 15, 2012 at 03:47 PM
A speculation is not an accusation, unless the reader is a simpleton or dolt who cannot comprehend the difference. Carry on with the colorful characterizations. The Fed's most certainly are watching. That is a good thing for this town.
Luigi (the original) May 15, 2012 at 04:15 PM
Come on Jacko, my disingenuous, egomaniacal friend, You CAN'T be serious. Only a simpleton or a dolt wouldn't see right through your crafty little ploy. Follow the money?.....Follow the speculation is more like it, follow the diversions, any diversions you feel the need to cast out there. It is becoming clearer and clearer that you are one of those suffering from multiple personality disorder. BE IT Hongo or Patti or Gene....... the strings do show! BE THIS!
Bob Fawkes May 15, 2012 at 04:52 PM
Speaking of strings showing, what's this?: Luigi (Jan 18th 2011) the original 11:38 am on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 "No one needs to drop any dimes..." So are you saying that crimes shouldn't be reported to the proper authorities? I hope not... I urge all citizens of East Haven who have knowledge of illegal activity of any sort, by either political party or by any private individual or by any company, to promptly report the crime to the proper authorities. That's the right thing to do. Luigi, If you are not "on the take" and if you are truly innocent of any crime and if maybe you are simply just another penny-ante Maturo "Yes" man, I strongly suggest that you Sir, should choose YOUR words more carefully. The Feds ARE watching. Thank you.
Luigi (the original) May 15, 2012 at 05:06 PM
{{{{{ ooooooohhhhwwww }}}}} (That's the "shiver that's running down my spine.) I have no worries, as I said before, I am no bodies "yes" man and have nothing to hide. IT'S you, I would think to be the one with the real problem, if you weren't hiding behind a FAKE persona, or SIX.
Luigi (the original) May 15, 2012 at 05:11 PM
Oh and Jacko, if your going to use a quote from me, use the entire quote, as to NOT create some false "out of context" message your people at the DTC are known for. What I said was: "No one needs to drop any dimes, it seems Jacko did that him/herself already."
Ann Della Camera May 16, 2012 at 03:55 AM
Richard, I have come to the conclusion that Starfishgirl is Rocco, sure sounds like a bottom feeder to me. Keep up the good work, you investigate well.
