Irony: Ahearn skips screening for her potential DA run

Irony, in its broadest sense, is a rhetorical device, literary technique, or event in which what appears, on the surface, to be the case, differs radically from what is actually the case.

I think it is ironic that Laura Ahearn cites ethics concerns given her penchant for cronyism with some of Suffolk County's worst criminals, like Dean Skelos and James Burke.

Laura Ahearn passed on Conservative screening for Suffolk DA

Possible Suffolk district attorney hopeful Laura Ahearn declined to appear before the Suffolk Conservative committee Sunday, saying the event posed a “potential ethical conflict,” even though the minor party tried to allay her qualms.

On the eve of candidate screening, Ahearn issued a statement criticizing the minor party for allowing party secretary Michael Torres to arrange the screening appointments for DA contenders while facing criminal charges himself.

Frank Tinari, Suffolk Conservative chair, said he learned of Ahearn’s concerns when a Newsday reporter sought a reaction to her statement on the eve of the screening. Encouraging her participation, Tinari said Torres had “graciously agreed” not to take part in the meeting. “We’d be happy to have her come,” he said. “We want to give everyone a chance to make their case.”

Tinari conveyed his offer to Suffolk Democratic chairman Richard Schaffer, who relayed it to Ahearn. She still declined to attend, saying the offer did “not inspire confidence that anything has changed under the current leadership.”

Laura Ahearn, potential Suffolk Co. District Attorney candidate? Really?

If we can elect a person with no experience and who is a complete asshat to the office of President of the USA, Sofucked County can elect this complete moron to the office of persecutor. After all, why let that Tuoro law school diploma that she just received LAST DECEMBER go to waste? (That's right, folks, she has NEVER tried a case.)

Other potential Democratic contenders include David Calone, a former federal prosecutor; James Chalifoux, an assistant district attorney; Mark Lesko, former Brookhaven supervisor; William Wexler, Suffolk Industrial Development Agency counsel, Police Commissioner Timothy Sini; and Laura Ahearn, executive director of Parents for Megan’s Law.
