THE TRUTH
(8 YEARS IN THE MAKING) IS IN ...
 
BELOW IS A PARTIAL EDITORIAL WRITTEN
BY THE PRESS OF ATLANTIC CITY
 
It 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 understatement ...
 
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 ...
 
We've decided 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 EDITOR) 
 
OUR QUESTION 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 ... YOU DECIDE         
 
 
PAYING THE PBA PRESIDENT / AN UNFAIR DEAL

Date: July 3, 1996
Publication: Press of Atlantic City, The (NJ)
Page: A16

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 years!
 
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 and productive level!
