HARRINGTON SINGING ‘LAY LOW’ IN STRETCH DRIVE … VOTER INTENT, NOT OK SPELLING, KEY TO WRITE-IN TALLY … & … CACC HITS BACK ON W’MSTOWN CHARGES

BY DAN VALENTI

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION, OCT. 26-8, 2018) — Given her refusal to debate incumbent district attorney Paul Caccaviello in the final stretch of the general election for District Attorney as well as ignoring this writer’s previous two requests for comment, it’s clear that Andrea Harrington and her brain trust have decided on the lay-low approach to bring them home to port.

We can almost hear Eric Clapton’s hooky guitar riff and gravelly voice:

Lay-y-y-y Lo,

My campaign’s on its knees 

Lay-y-y Lo 

I’m beggin’ voters please

Lay-y-y-y Lo 

Won’t you ease my worried mind?

The tune’s catchy, but if that’s the strategy, THE PLANET and two cents will advise Camp Harrington that it runs a what should be for them an unacceptable risk of back-firing. We are in the stretch run of the campaign, a precious time when the electorate — at least those that will — begin to pay attention. If Harrington continues on his Greta Garbo impression, they will see Caccaviello in a one-man show, essentially, as active as he’s been this entire cycle.

The Preeevent D, the four corners O, icing the puck, the intentional walk — whatever you call it, playing not to lose as opposed to going for broke and the win often ends up backfiring. That might be something for the Harrington team to consider between now and yesterday. In fact, one of THE PLANET‘s spies in attendance at Harrington’s Thursday night fundraiser reported an animated debate among several backers over the wisdom of “laying low.” Our favorite exchange, as reported by our Z-Agent:

AH BACKER 1: When you got the lead you play it safe. … AH BACKER 2: What makes you think she’s got the lead? 

Wise guys we talked to have a consensus that keeping the muzzle on Harrington will reduce the chances of her making another major gaffe. Apparently, even her backers don’t trust her to make good judgments. The however with that strategy is that it leaves her opponent an golden, silver, and bronze opportunity to march downfield and score.

And let us just say again that THE PLANET “backs” no one in this race. We began as we always do, with a blank slate, allowing the various campaigns and the individual candidates to write upon it. This may go against the fictions concocted in the whirled philosophies of those entrenched souls who desperately want a specific outcome on Nov. 6, no matter HOW it’s achieved, but so be it. The candidates act or don’t. THE PLANET reports and interprets. Simple as that, Fred.

VOTER INTENT RULES

Again, let us cite MGL election law from the Secretary of State’s office. In a write-in campaign, correct spelling, proper addresses, and dotting every lower case “j” and crossing every “t” play second violin to the “voter’s intent.” If a ballot clearly and reasonably identifies the voter’s intent, the vote count — or should count.   Spelling “Caccaviello” isn’t necessary, although we admit it helps. If what the voter writes can be reasonably interpreted as a vote for Cacc, it goes in his win total. Provided. Provided that the person counting the ballots makes that judgment. This makes it vital for both candidates to have only TRUSTED deputies monitoring the all-important count. With write-ins, we can expect some challenges and the dangling temptation for illegality and manipulation. Consequently, both Harrington and Caccaviello HAVE to have sharp deputies with debating skills at each polling station. That cannot be stated enough.

The other point to keep in mind is that narrow margin of victory for Harrington in the September primary. She prevailed over Caccaviello by a fraction of 1 percent. Every vote will count, especially given that in the general election:

  • Republicans will be voting.
  • Independents will have another opportunity.
  • Turnout will be greater.
  • Third place finisher Judy Knight has released her 5,100+ votes to Caccaviello with the recommendation of a strong an unequivocal endorsement.
  • There will be greater interest in this race compared to September.

CACC ADDRESSES WILLIAMSTOWN RAPE ISSUE, BLASTS ACCUSATIONS AS ‘POLITICAL’

Paul Caccaviello took on the alleged Williams College sexual assault issue Wednesday, trying to put out a flashfire he says was started by Harrington and her backers as a ruse to distract voters from the “real issues.”

Here is the full text of Caccaviello’s press release:

Berkshire District Attorney Paul J. Caccaviello is refuting facts contained in a letter to the editor of the Berkshire Eagle in August of this year. The letter claimed that the Berkshire District Attorney failed to investigate or prosecute over 40 cases of sexual assault reported by Williams College between 2014 and 2016.

“The allegations in this letter were extremely disturbing as they are completely contrary to the mission of the office and goal of protecting victims” Caccaviello said. “I contacted both Williams College and the Williamstown Police Department to begin an inquiry into the matter and found that Mr. Pucci’s claims were not only without merit, but misleading, ill-informed, and insensitive to victims.”

Caccaviello said his inquiry showed that the majority of the information provided by Williams College to the Williamstown Police Department did not contain sufficient data to permit a thorough investigation by law enforcement. It found that although Mr. Pucci claimed that “all the data about this sexual violence was reported [by the college] to the Williamstown Police Department,” in fact, two-thirds of the incidents reported to the police failed to identify either the victim or the alleged perpetrator of the crime. Caccaviello added “Williamstown Police Chief Kyle Johnson discovered an additional 18 cases of sexual assault were never even reported to his department and, therefore, could not be referred to the District Attorney’s Office for further investigation or prosecution. Mr. Pucci’s claim that “all the data” about these crimes was shared with the local police and the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office is simply not true.”

Chief Johnson indicated that when his department timely requested the names of the parties involved in these cases to further their own investigation, Williams College did not provide the names and protected the confidentiality of the victims and alleged perpetrators. The College was well-within its discretion not to reveal the names of the parties to these incidents. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 does not require colleges and universities to report allegations of sexual violence to law enforcement, it only requires schools to investigate and address sexual violence on campus. Title IX also permits, and even encourages, schools to maintain students’ confidentiality. The College is not required to provide to the public or to the District Attorney any additional information about these incidents. In fact, the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report informs students that “all reported crimes will be investigated by the College and may become a matter of public record only if subpoenaed by law enforcement.”

“We fully respect the rights of victims who chose to remain anonymous and not move forward with an investigation and we understand that the College also has an obligation to provide a safe atmosphere for its students to speak freely. What is disappointing, and irresponsible, is that Mr. Pucci, an experienced criminal law attorney, chose to blame the Berkshire District At torney’s Office for the nature of Williams College’s public disclosures of sexual violence.

Caccaviello vowed to continue to work with Williams College and Williamstown Police Department to assist in investigations and support all victims of sexual assault. “This is an issue that colleges across the country are facing and we are committed to providing all of the necessary resources to not just Williams College but all college campuses in Berkshire County to address the problem.”

  • * * * * * * * * *

THE PLANET notes with curiosity that the newspaper once known as The Berkshire Eagle refused to run Cacc’s press release either as an article or news story, relegating it to “herd status” on the Letters to the Editor page. That could be cited as another piece of evidence of the claim now being made more strongly and openly that The Boring Broadsheet is secretly backing Harrington.

In our previous column (Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018), THE PLANET published an e-mail sent by BB publisher Fred Rutberg to a reader in which Rutberg called Cacciavello’s campaign “non-existent” and said his paper wouldn’t cover it. Cacc backers are calling that a “smoking gun” and insist that the newspaper and the Harrington campaign have reached some sort of “secret deal.” No one will go on the record, of course. THE PLANET will work our sources on the street, in the respective campaigns, and at the newspaper. It’s a fishing expedition, yes, but sometimes that’s how you land the prized marlins. Even now, we are getting strong bites.

———- 000 ———-

As always, feel free to comment on any issue, but KEEP IT ON-MESSAGE and REASONABLE. We ask this futilely, perhaps, but we must make the plea. Your words say everything about your mind. Don’t be ignorant. Be smart.

We would especially encourage your thoughts on the D.A. campaign.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

    Dear Cicero, read it and sleep well knowing you were such a great help in working against those solving the problems in your community.

    Letter: Williams College process for addressing sexual assault complaints
    Posted Friday, October 26, 2018 4:57 pm
    To the editor:

    District Attorney Paul Caccaviello published a letter in The Eagle describing his approach to the prosecution of sexual assaults in Berkshire County (Eagle, Oct. 25). On behalf of the many people at Williams College who work on related issues, we appreciate DA Cacciaviello’s explanation of how his office handles these cases.

    Since Caccaviello’s letter refers to data about Williams, we would like to follow by clarifying for Eagle readers how the college reports incidents on campus. His letter mentions campus cases that weren’t reported to law enforcement. He also explains that the college wasn’t required by law to do so: This can happen, for example, if a victim seeks support from the college but chooses not to file a criminal complaint at that time. In such instances, the survivor may decide to pursue a complaint through the college’s disciplinary system, and we still report the incident data to the U.S. Department of Education and disclose it to the public on an annual basis as required by law.

    Going forward, to help local authorities, after a crime is entered in our crime log it will be reported to the police department within 48 hours of the initial report. We hope this will aid our community partners in tracking incidents and related data, while at the same time protecting students’ right to privacy and survivors’ right to decide whether and when to report their cases to the police.

    Williams faculty and staff, like our peers around the country, are charged with the responsibility and privilege of educating and caring for students during a pivotal stage of their lives. We remain committed to doing everything possible to prevent sexual assaults and other misconduct, to mitigate their effect when they occur and to support survivors as they decide how to pursue the remedies available to them. We will be glad if our process in some small way helps public officials better serve our students and the people of Berkshire County.

      Let me get this straight. Apparently you think that my comments contributed to Williams College issuing that statement…and you think that’s a bad thing? That that statement is antithetical to the cause of justice for victims???

      You are completely out to lunch. You are on ignore from now on.

      Regarding the statement, it contradicts language that Williams inserts annually in its Clery Report (is there a lawyer in the house?) and contradicts what Capeless himself and (by implication) WPD Chief Johnson said in 2014.

      It’s possible Capeless had been mislead when he gave that interview. But if all cases weren’t actually being forwarded to him as they arose, he would have received a report at the end of the 2014/2015 school year that showed 19 reported rapes. If his office had only been made aware of some portion of those, why didn’t he notice? Why didn’t he make an inquiry? Why didn’t he do his job? You may not be aware of this, but a crime against an individual is a crime against the Commonwealth. Turning a completely blind eye to so many reports and claiming it was all done out of consideration for victims is not only repugnant, it runs counter to the most fundamental responsibility of a DA.

      I’m looking forward to the next volley. Now that Williams College is engaged, this is going to get really interesting.

      Here is my prediction of the ultimate findings: Guilt all around.
      Williams College? Guilty.
      The WPD? Guilty.
      The Capeless/Caccaviello regime? Guilty.

    Cicero has done everything possible to make the Williams story reflect badly on the DA’s office. The Williams letter confirms that the story was used as political fodder to attack Cacc in this race. And Harrington swore in public to right this non existent wrong. Everyone clear? Goodnight CicerKrol!

    • Cicero
      October 28, 2018 at 11:56 am #

      Sorry, Charlie. The Williams letter just poured more gasoline on the fire. In the past they have explicitly stated that all reports get forwarded to the police, even if no names are provided. They say that each year in their Clery Report as well.

      Capeless said the same thing, forcefully, just a few years ago.

      The fact that Williams was caught in a lie does not mean Capeless and Cacaviello are not liars as well. Even if reports were only provided in summary form at the end of the year, a non-corrupt DA would have noticed how high the numbers were, and also that they did not match up with the number of reports they had received over the course of the year. Presumably this was the case every year.

      But hey, it’s tough to focus on minor crimes like campus rapes with so many teenage weed smokers to corral.

    • Cicero
      October 28, 2018 at 12:47 pm #

      Whoa! I totally missed this from one of your earlier comments: “Then we learn that Pucci’s client was an alum who got drunk and then demanded an investigation that turned up no crime. This sleazebag is a top Harrington campaign contributor.”

      I saw that Harrington referred to Pucci being involved in a past Williams case in her WAMC interview. It didn’t really sink in before, but in his interview Capeless provided info about the case and mentioned that it was an “alumna” who was involved in a drunken incident, that the case was thoroughly investigated by the WPD and his office, and there was no basis to move forward.

      That strikes me as highly unethical, to discuss particulars of a sexual assault case, whether it went forward or not.

      And now you add to those particulars and say it was an alum who “got drunk and then demanded an investigation.” First off, your belief that a woman who gets drunk deserves what she gets comes through loud and clear. That’s obviously why all those Williams cases disappeared, since surely the vast majority of victims were drunk and didn’t deserve protection in the view of people like you and Capeless. Second, and far worse, this seems to highly unethical stuff for a member of the DA’s office to be putting out on the internet, Ms. Blair.

      I doubt an accomplished attorney in his mid 60’sspends much time on these message boards, but you can be sure I will be anonymously emailing Pucci your comment.

    To truly get rid of crime here in Berkshire County especially in Pittsfield and North Adams, we need totally new leadership and I don’t mean exchanging one Progressive for another Progressive.

    Just in yesterday’s Berkshire Eagle I keep reading story after story about how this area needs help with drug abuse, lack of jobs, and not even being able to walk through the Common here in Pittsfield without being knocked to the ground by homeless people and drug addicts looking for money. Homelessness is out of control in this city. What is being done? Oh, yes a homelessness committee was formed which means some overpaid people will sit around talking about homelessness, but NOTHING will actually be done to solve the problem.

    Until people figure out that it’s the Progressive ideology that is destroying this city, there is truly no hope and things will only get worse.

    Prostitution is also becoming big business here in Pittsfield. It’s not hard to figure out why. Lack of jobs, drug abuse, and homelessness. The homeless are camping out at Springside Park and the Common. A different homeless person is in front of the Walmart entrance in Pittsfield almost daily asking for money and holding a sign saying “Wiling to Work”. This is a Progressive social experiment gone horribly wrong.

      I see that your contention is that the president is behind the caravan. Doesn’t seem to make sense. It’s either spontaneous or backed by individual or individuals that are hoping for bad things happening, like the children being separated from their parents or someone being shot.
      You say that Democrats (part of anyone) are not for open borders. Then they should support closed borders. Which means they should support building a wall to secure the border. Did they not turn down a deal that would have funded the wall AND provided a pathway to citizenship for the “dreamers’. Again seems like a disconnect.
      You seem liked an educated and civilized person. You must know that calling people stupid, because they disagree with you, is totally wrong. How does the old saying go: “a person convinced against his will remains unconvinced still”? If you are trying to convince someone then use reason and facts. If that fails just agree to disagree. I find the people that post here are intelligent, informed, witty and oftentimes very funny.

    Trump is whacked out. As a child and young adult his old man coddled him to the point where now he gets off on letting others lay down their lives for him and his agenda. He has as self protecting personality,which is very rare The lies are part of his disorder, he actually doesn’t believe all of his lies,but gets off on it. One of his biggest personality disorders,is he loves to control, if that is taken away from him, he will divert to something that only he,can have the ultimate decision to control. That is why he hates the media, he can’t control what they say about him, he just hates that.

        While some of the planets lunatics disparage the Gman he is assembling his team of scientists and engineers with the hopes of saving rate payers many millions of dollars on the sewage treatment project like he saved over 100 million dollars when he built the water treatment plants. One must also realize that
        the Gman saved every rate payer in pittsfield 10’s and 10’s of thousands of dollars in reduced W/S rates in the past 34 years which would have been 800% higher for all those years. The Gman plans to give it his all to protect every tax payer and rate payer in this city from having to face W/S rates which will rise by 800% if the present W/S proposals advance. Everyone better pray that the Gman is successful as if he isn’t you reading this post is in for a very rough ride perhaps one way out of pittsfield. The Gman only cares to save you rate payers and asks nothing for himself. Wining for you is thanks enough for him. Now do some lunatics want to throw stones at him? Fire away it is akin to stoning your selves. Pray that the Gman is successful. His success is your success.

      The most dangerous man in the world is unfortunately my president. The US has never before seen as vile an individual as scump. He has so divided this country and world that it will take we truth loving fact demanding individuals who know right from wrong many years to right our ship that he has laid on its side. Scump is a short timer and will have his wings severely clipped when we democrats take over the house in 11 days. There is not a bit of doubt that scump incites the crazzies including some on this very site who will only become more and more violent each and every additional day scump is in power. Because it is a certainty that the dems will win the house all peace loving decent truthful individuals only need to ride out the next few days as the posse will arrive on Nov 6 and start to refloat our sinking ship which scump put the hole in. Better days are coming. I’m certain of this because things can’t get any worse than what we have with scump today. My biggest worry is what are we going to do with the deranged scumpetts that will remain after we finish scump? This is going to be a huge problem but decent people will try to re program and bring them back to their senses. This is what we real Americans always try to do. Help everyone.

We really don’t know much of your opinions as most of your posts are to chastise those that don’t think like you. In my posts I give background as to why I feel as I do but you don’t You must come to realize that you are a part of a minority base that doesn’t value the ability to tell right from wrong or truths from lies.

I can tell right from wrong and know the difference between a lie and the truth. Do me a favor___Try to justify scumps over 5200 confirmed lies. You tried to justify scumps lies by stating a big lie of your own that Maxine Waters has told over 24000 lies. You are definitely a scump disciple and I pray you do not become violent as some of scumps disciples have become.

Gigi and her ilk don’t know right from wrong or truth from lies and IT is a danger to all Americans who demand the truth and chastise lies and liars and who know the difference between right and wrong. I have stated many times we will be done with scump soon but what are we going to do with Gigi and the five morons I mentioned earlier? They undoubtably are the real problems we must address as soon as possible after we get rid of scump. These people who support scump are white men and women with very little education and these types have been a tremendous drag on our economy for eons. We all know who they are. There are quite a few who post on this board and they are everywhere. They produce nothing and they consume everything that the intelligent invent. They are not smart enough to see that scump is an aberrant idiot but they relate with him very well. This is what I mean when I say what are we going to do with them once our country is on its feet again and scump is sent packing? This is going to be our next major problem in america.

The most dangerous person on the planet is Scump and next are all his followers. We need to remember that Hitler had hordes who idolized him and in the end he left Germany in tatters. All decent individuals who cherish truth who truly know right from wrong are going to be the ones who bring sanity back to America. The scump experiment has been a collusous total failure and his reign will soon be over but make no mistake his stain on our country and the world will linger for a long time but we as a country are strong and we always find a way to correct wrong and we will correct SCUMS wrongs.

    Democrats hate Trump for putting America first. The America first doctrine has caused outrage on the left. The liberals around the world are pulling out their hair over “Make America Great Again.” Trump wishes to promote American exceptionalism and uplift the American economy, without the permission of the world. The liberals dismiss “the America first doctrine” as a bigoted and hateful belief. The liberals believe in cultural relativism, where all cultures are equal, not one tribe over the other, this is why President Donald Trump and liberals cannot agree over policy. President Trump was immediately hated from the beginning based on his doctrinal view point that the American potential has yet to been realized. The media establishment falsely describes nationalism as a thing of the past, but is it? Donald Trump has revived the American national spirit and the left is trying to kill it. Liberals are unable to believe in America first, because according to the philosophy of “Cultural Relativism” America should an equal in the pack not the leader of the pack. Therefore Liberals are against any form of Americanism and efforts to make America number one in the world.

  40. Trump Derangement Syndrome
    October 28, 2018 at 12:57 pm #

    Liberals hate it that Trump brings leadership. The fact that Donald Trump means business is a dangerous thought for left wing circles. For years the liberals have been working around the clock to enact their agenda of so-called “progress” enacting radical policies that have undermined America as a whole. Weather it has been shipping jobs overseas, Obamacare, the Supreme Court controversial rulings, the rise of ISIS. Liberals have proven that leadership is not a very important factor in the White House. However Donald Trump so far has proven to be a leader through his actions, allowing the Keystone Pipeline, resigning from the TPP, reforming the EPA, about to finish Tax reform, protecting liberty and trying to replace and repeal Obamacare. All of these and more are evidences that Trump is much more than a Twitter account, or just a billionaire. It proves that he is working for the American people’s interests and not for Washington or Wall Street. It’s been a while since the public witness ture leadership that it’s beginning harder to recgonize it. It has also proven that the liberals are a rebellious group refusing to submit to their authorities and refusing to keep American interests first.

        Here is rush limbidiot latest rant. It appears the stickers on Caesar sayoc’s van are newly put on. Probably put there to embarrass our president. You can’t make this stuff up. The lost souls on this board are fed this crap every minute of every day and is there any doubt as to why they are so lost as to even know right from wrong. This is what we decent people on this country have to put up with day in and day out but not for much longer. Democrat across the board. It is the only way to collar trump derangement syndrome. We will succeed.

      Awesome post, 12! President Trump has already accomplished so much in just two short years.

      The approaching migrant caravan is a huge issue. Thanks to the Democrats and some RINOs – we have an incomplete wall. The sovereignty of the US is at stake, as we are about to be invaded by these layabouts & the diseases that they are bringing. Vote red so President Trump’s goal of completing the wall can be accomplished.

    That’s what usually happens,let the little head tell the big head what to do, and all the good goes down the drain. I doubt it very seriously that this is the end of mayhem and hate in this country, only because we are currently split in half. And there are way to many nuts out there. We have loons everywhere, in politics, police, right down the line. The latest is the cop in todays Eagle,here, when the hell did they know about this one?

    Since Trump has been President gun deaths are up 12% and an even greater uptick in Schoolyard bullying and hate crimes.There is not a single psychiatrist that would say Trump is not dangerous. Trump is a very real threat to public health. If American Generals are required to take a psychiatric evalution, then why not Presidents,especially this one.

        In these days of scump we have to hope candidates of both parties come thru the election in one piece. In these days of scump God knows what can happen. The scump experiment is near finished and civility will return when we boot him out on Nov 6th. Good riddance to bad garbage. Vote dems at all positions at the federal level. It is the only way back to normalcy. Just Saying.

          Getting back to home. Everyone who despises a useless candidate such as Harrington must do your part to elect Paul Cacaviello as DA. This is a match up between a light weight and a heavy weight. We saw a match up like this in the 2015 mayoral race where by an idiot beat a genius. We all know how this has paned out and we must never ever let these kind of things ever happen again. We all need to call everyone we know and ask them to call everyone they know and push push for Paul. I voted already and my tip to everyone is to write in Paul’s name on the double line on the ballot. The Gman bought a large add in the gazette showing people where to write in Paul’s name. Cut the add out of the gazette and take it to the polls and follow the directions on the add in the voting booth. Remember. PAUL CACCAVIELLO and be sure to fill out in the circle after you write in his name. Its as simple as that.

    Awesome turnout at Cacc’s North Adams pasta fundraiser! Full house with overflow into the lounge. Spoke with the Mazzeos and yes, the Harrington phone call happened with threats.

    WE ARE POSITIVE WE ARE HEADED FOR A WIN!

    Super positive news – pushing 40,000 voter requests for information cards on how to do the write-in vote.

    One of the best comments of the night: “If you look at all the Harrington big name endorsers, you’ll see a “D” after their names. It shows these people are NOT representing us. They don’t care about public safety. They only care about party politics.”

    The Harrington endorsers are going to lose a lot of ground if the mood of the voters continues.
