My opinion wasn't listed as a choice: "Good for him. He took a stand when he felt his personal space invaded."

That video is as phony as Corwin, another millionaire prima donna who has to delve into Facebook, U-Tube, Craiglist and the like with their monkey business. What scandal will she be into when and if she gets to D.C.????????

Enjoy the u-tube video as NY tax payers we paid the salary of the man ith the camera....He's Jane Corwin's legislative chief of staff camaigning on the public's dime...it didn't take Jane long to catch up with the habits of other political big shots having staff working on campaigns....I wonder if he picks up her dirty laundry as well

Steve: "What scandal will she be into when and if she gets to D.C.????????" Maybe a shirtless picture on Facebook would help her dwindling chances...... :)

Ummmmm.....Bob, I doubt it. I will say that this entire fiasco demonstrates the complete idiocy of this candidate and her handlers. I mean everyone knows Jack is a grumpy old man. Who didn't know that when a young whippersnapper shoved a camera in his face and bombarded him with questions that he wouldn't react the way that he did? And Howard, while Mr. Mallia's actions might have been legal, I couldn't disagree more with you regarding them being ethical. I'm no Jack supporter, but what is ethical about invading the personal space of anyone? I wonder how Mr. Mallia would feel if that were done to his boss while he WAS on the clock. I'm thinking his reaction would be quite different.

I thought the aide was on salary, not a per hour employee.

He's on salary and makes in the neighborhood of $40K/ year. Standard practice for political staffers if they want to work for their boss' campaign is to take a leave of absence from their public job.

It should not be about "who" shot the video but the real intent or purpose of the video and how it was being recorded. "Political Paparazzi" should be kept at a reasonable personal space distance period. That includes the reach of my arms out front of my face ! Just saying. WTF edit: I voted sadly it's politics as usual...... edit 12:16pm @ Chris, this should be your blog video for Friday 13. (don't leave me hanging). *BUMP* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMxX-QOV9tI&feature=fvwrel

That person with the camera really needs to take acting lessons, or maybe get on Stone Cold Steve Austin's "Tough Enough" to learn how to take a fall and make it believable. Or, maybe he could just keep his day job.

"Or, maybe he could just keep his day job." He's caused a level of embarrassment to the Erie County GOP high enough so that may not be possible.

None of this is Jane's fault! Why are you persecuting her?

Yeah, you guys are supposed to be honored that she is willing to serve the taxpayers. With her background, she could be a CEO somewhere or back on Wall St. making tons of money. (great old GOP chestnut) Gabor: "I still wouldn't vote for her but I would friend and "poke" her good !" Easy big guy, don't get too excited. LOL

C.M.? Steve? Heh heh, leave Jane alone, she's not feeling too well right now. "Bite me Karl Rove." - George Richardson, Austin, Texas. Vote for Ian Murphy and send a real message to Washing Machine.

Steve- the video was intended to underscore the facetious tone inherent in my statement.

Apparently Chris Crocker's ebullient language crossed the line. So Google Chris Crocker YouTube Leave Britney Alone and discover the connection for yourself.

@Gabor I was too busy writing a piece about this topic last night to do my usual lazy Friday stroll through YouTube park. Next week I'll try to do something special just for you.

The day of the candidate NOT videographing their campaigns is coming to an end. This video albeit quite absurd, demonstrates the need for someone (the targeted) to have someone documenting the candidates POV. It is not expensive. My iPod has video ability. Then these videos can easily become a video blog from the candidate and make the candidate a little more real. Again, I defer to Marshall Macluhan "...the medium is the message..."
