MAKING) IS IN ...
BELOW IS A PARTIAL
BY THE PRESS OF
should be noted that this editorial was written on July 3, 1996 ... It must
also be noted that my twin Brother Don Hurley was elected Atlantic City P.B.A.
Presient on July 1, 1996 ... The Atlantic City Press (who wrote nothing about
this issue for 16 years) waited two days after my Brother's election to
editorialize how unfair it is that there should be a paid PBA President
To say that
this is hypocritical, would be quite an
I stated in
1996 (on-air) that the Atlantic City Press had never written such an editorial
... never once ... Further, I said that once my Brother left the PBA Presidency,
that they would never write about this ever again ... I stated publicly that
this of course would take a number of years to prove
today, that enough time has elapsed to put this one to bed once and for all
... The proof is in ... We could have written this any time during the
past few years ...
It's now been
about 8 years since Don left the PBA Presidency ... and, what do you know
... the Atlantic City Press has never written a word about this "unfair deal"
Yes, we admit
it ... We love being right! And, this is just one more see we told you so
HERE IS THE
BEGINNING FEW PARAGRAPHS OF THE COMPLETELY MANUFACTURED STORY ABOUT DON ...
WE HAVE ALSO LEARNED AND CONFIRMED (TO NO SUPRISE) THAT THIS EDITORIAL WAS
WRITTEN BY JIM PERSKIE, ASSOCIATE EDITORIAL PAGE
OF THE DAY ... IS THIS STILL AN "UNFAIR DEAL"?
OR, WAS THIS
WHOLE THING NOTHING MORE THAN A PERSONAL ATTACK ... MAKE THAT, A CHEAP SHOT
AGAINST MY BROTHER DON, THE HARDEST WORKING AND MOST EFFECTIVE PBA PRESIDENT IN
ATLANTIC CITY HISTORY?
WE REPORT ...
THE PBA PRESIDENT / AN UNFAIR DEAL
Publication: Press of Atlantic City, The (NJ)
Add this one to your "Only in Atlantic City" file,
subsection "Sweetheart Deals."
Apparently, for something like the
last 16 years, Atlantic City taxpayers have paid a police officer to work
full-time as president of the police officers union.
Just so you're clear on this: The officer who is head
of Local 24 of the Policeman's Benevolent Association does not patrol the
streets. He does not investigate crimes. He does not arrest the bad guys.
What he does...
This phony article
goes on and on ... And, it's only purpose was to attack my Brother ... Hey
Jim, and Mike Diamond (for that matter) ... how come there is no more
outrage about this "unfair deal."
We can only presume
that it was quite fair for 16 years ... then, it was quite unfair for 2
years ... and, now it is quite fair (again) for the past 8
Funny, aren't they?
They are so easy
to expose ... And, the great news is that through a relentless pursuit of
the truth ... armed with the facts ... and, the test of time on our side
... We have once again revealed to the public ... how the agenda-driven
media operates ...
Kudos to Don Hurley
... He took all the bogus hits and just kept doing his job at a high
