VITUPERIOS. COM- SE LAVAN PECADOS EN LA GRAN MANZANA…QUIEN SE APUNTA.

Señores sigamos así, enalteciendo la imagen y dignidad de la comunidad salvadoreña, en su día. El día del salvadoreño-americano.

Este año en particular quizá no será recordado por los chanchullos en los bailongos, sino como el año en que los seudolideres y personajes de la política y representantes del GOES, se prestaron para la lavada de imágenes de personajes con tremendas colas que patear y la redención de sus pecados. No importa que la comunidad quede como vendida, sin principios y valores, de cara al resto de las comunidades inmigrantes.

Me pregunto y para que están las sucursales y tiendas de campaña que ni siquiera les informan a sus correligionarios con quienes se vienen a tomar la foto y/o departirán entre copas y risas.

No prevenirles para que evalúen si les afectara o no su propia imagen y credibilidad de frente a su propia comunidad la cual necesitan para seguir dándole atol con el dedo en busca de apoyo en el pulgarcito, ya que recordemos que no tenemos, ni tendremos voto en el exterior.


Me sorprendió ver en la nota de LTH, en la cual se menciona que la organización Motursas, S.A de C.V derivados y conexos HONRARA a un ex cónsul, que si bien no mal recuerdo fue destituido por estar involucrado en la venta de pasaportes.

Pero como ya lo digiera el señor Mangano, encargado de promocionar la célebre frase “Hay que dar segundas, terceras, cuartas y quizá una quinta oportunidad” queda como harina de otro costal. Pero sería interesante conocer el curriculum de estos personajes y su aporte al desarrollo de la comunidad como ente colectivo, que les valga dicho reconocimiento. Porque desde que dejo las labores consulares no hay record alguno para que ahora lo resuciten y también lo quieran elevar a la categoría de líder y suceso.

Porque no se les habrá ocurrido reconocer a los jornaleros que tendrían mayor merito, así hubieran superado el record de citaciones que ya tiene el Condado de Nassau.


Les compartimos parte del curriculum de quien sale en la foto haciendo entrega en la Asamblea Legislativa a su presidente que como bien lo declarara a Univisión el motivo del viajecito.

Reyes destacó a la cadena hispana, que su visita a los salvadoreños que emigraron a tierra estadounidense, demuestra su permanente compromiso con los compatriotas y ahora en su calidad de Presidente del Órgano Legislativo representa un tributo a la contribución de los connacionales a la economía salvadoreña, que logran aportar al país, a costa de su permanente sacrificio y separación de sus familias.


El cual en vez de ser un “tributo” como dice para la comunidad, esta mas bien siendo un alago en reciprocidad para el pitufo estafael.

Nassau Independence Party loses chairman

The often-controversial Bobby Kumar is out as chairman of Nassau’s Independence Party and power to name the minor party’s Nassau candidates has been transferred to the state party’s executive committee, said state party chairman Frank MacKay.

“There is no chairman in Nassau County,” said MacKay. He said the party state committee took over power of naming the Nassau minor party’s candidates Saturday in a meeting in Troy. Papers officially making the change were filed at the state and Nassau Board of Elections Tuesday.

Kumar is out, according to MacKay, because he failed to hold a biennial party meeting last September to reorganize the Nassau party committee and elect party officers.

“I’ve always liked Bobby and brought him into the party,” said MacKay. “But you absolutely have to inform people that you’re having a meeting whether they are with you or not. That’s why we will have no chair until 2012.”

However, Kumar, 53, chair for the past four years, says he remains head of the party’s “duly constituted committee.” He says he held a meeting re-electing him on or around Sept 20. He said he will bring the proper paperwork to the next state party committee. Nassau’s Democratic elections officials say there is no record of Kumar's reorganization meeting; GOP election officials did not respond immediately.

Kumar, who staged his own kidnapping in 2001, has over the years often drawn fire from Republicans and Democratic officials for vacillating endlessly before making a final decision on who to support.

Gary Melius, a MacKay ally, tried unsuccessfully to oust Kumar last September in a party primary as a state committee member.

Since the minor party mainly endorses major-party candidates, the most significant change is that the state executive committee will now issue authorizations — known as Wilson-Pikula certificates — for allowing non-party members on the party’s line in general elections.

MacKay added that he will name someone to serve as a liason to Nassau Independence Party activists at his March 31 fundraiser.

Jay Jacobs, Nassau and state Democratic chairman, said the decision was “internal party business,” but added “it’s no secret I’ve had my difficulties with Bobby Kumar and I hope the relationship I can develop with the next chairman will be an open, frank and honest one.”

Gop Bigwig Charged With Faking His Kidnap
BY BRIAN HARMON DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Friday, August 03, 2001

A prominent Long Island Republican devastated by newsletter articles accusing him of rape and extortion was arrested yesterday for faking his kidnapping.

Cops said Karan (Bobby) Kumar feigned his abduction last month with hopes of exposing the sources of a series of what Kumar called "false reports" in the weekly publication, India in US.

Kumar, 44, a vice chairman with Nassau County's GOP committee, led investigators to believe that the publisher was responsible for his two-day disappearance, Nassau Police Detective Lt. Steven Skrynecki said.

Kumar confessed in a videotaped statement to police late Wednesday, an assistant district attorney said.

"He was devastated by these articles, and he was in a state of desparation," Skrynecki said. "He wanted to draw attention to an investigation into these articles."

Kumar pleaded not guilty in 1st District Court in Hempstead to two misdemeanor charges of making a punishable false written statement. He was represented by a Legal Aid Society attorney and did not comment on the case afterward. The Syosset businessman did not have to pay bail and was released on his own recognizance.

Kumar's wife reported him missing July 9 after he failed to return home the previous evening from a dinner date with a friend at the Celebrity Diner in Syosset. Kumar originally told authorities that two men had shoved him into a BMW sport-utility vehicle in the diner parking lot and dumped him in Valley Stream Park two days later.

But police said a friend drove Kumar to the Skyview Motel near LaGuardia Airport in Queens, where Kumar hid for two days before hailing a cab in Flushing and getting a ride to Valley Stream, where he was found July 10.

"[Kumar] was presented with a series of disturbing facts and evidence that compelled him to be truthful with us," Skrynecki said.

Weeks before the phony abduction, Kumar asked police and the district attorney's office to investigate the damaging reports in the weekly newsletter.

The articles called Kumar the leader of a "gang of thugs" and said he used political influence to force young women emigrating from India to have sex with him and his friends. If they did not comply, it meant deportation for the women and their relatives, the articles said.

One India in US piece on Kumar quotes a woman named Sejal Patel: "Crook Roger introduced me to a guy he identified as Big Bobby, a powerful man," she said in the article. "This Bobby just grabbed me and started misbehaving. I resisted. But Roger told me, 'Don't annoy him, he can get your whole family deported.' "

Nassau G.O.P. Figure Is Charged With Faking Tale of Kidnapping
By AL BAKER
Published: August 03, 2001

When the police found him last month in a Valley Stream park, Karan Kumar, a prominent Nassau County Republican and businessman, breathlessly told them how he had been kidnapped by three men who ambushed him in a diner's parking lot, put a vinyl bag over his head and drove him to a musty room where they held him for two days and then released him, unhurt.

But there were gaping holes in his story: he could not describe his abductors, or explain why they had suddenly let him go. He had mysteriously changed his clothes after he vanished. Then a cabdriver told the police that Mr. Kumar had flagged him down for a ride from Flushing, Queens, to the park on the day he was found there.

So when Mr. Kumar dropped into the Second Precinct station here on Wednesday to pick up floor mats from his BMW sport utility vehicle -- the car he said he was entering as he was abducted on July 8 -- the police confronted him with the discrepancies. They said Mr. Kumar admitted that he had made up the entire tale to get them to investigate and prosecute whoever was behind accusations in several fliers and Indian-American newspapers that he was involved in criminal activity.

Late Wednesday, the police charged Mr. Kumar, 44, with two misdemeanor counts of making a punishable false written statement, said Joy M. Watson, deputy chief of the major-offense bureau in the Nassau district attorney's office. Each count carries a penalty of up to a year in jail.

Today, Mr. Kumar, who is known as Bobby, was arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead, where he pleaded not guilty and was released without bail.

The police said Mr. Kumar told them that on the evening of his supposed kidnapping, he had actually had a friend drive him to a $60-a-night motel near La Guardia Airport, where he spent the next two days alone in his room, watching the television reports about the frantic search for him.

''From start to finish, it was one heck of a roller coaster case,'' said Lt. Steven E. Skrynecki, the commander of the Nassau police Second Precinct detectives. ''We went from thoughts that Kumar was kidnapped and murdered to concerns that there was some kind of hidden extortion plot. In the end, it was a lie told by a desperate man. And the Police Department was extremely annoyed with the considerable time and energy wasted.''

Reached on his cellular phone today, Mr. Kumar said only: ''I am O.K. and I am thankful. I don't want to speak right now.'' He referred other questions to his lawyer, Eliot F. Bloom of Mineola.

Mr. Kumar's disappearance caused a huge stir because he is prominent in certain Indian-American circles and has wielded influence as a fund-raiser, adviser and vice chairman in the famously hierarchical Nassau County Republican Party. A former contractor, he has built a commercial real estate business in Nassau County. He lives in Syosset with his wife and five children.

And after he reappeared, the tale of his abduction -- even with all its loose ends -- was taken seriously by the police, in part because of the newspaper articles attacking him. The police said today that it was clear that Mr. Kumar had enemies, and that during their search they feared that he had been killed.

The articles, mailed to other prominent Indian-Americans or left in Indian restaurants, so troubled Mr. Kumar that in June he complained to the Nassau police, the district attorney and the F.B.I. Patrick McCormack, a prosecutor in the district attorney's office, said he told Mr. Kumar that he might have a civil case against the publisher of the reports, but not a criminal one.

The articles, in little-known Indian-American papers, included numerous allegations of inappropriate personal and professional activity, which the district attorney's office says it looked into and found no evidence to support. One front-page article in the newspaper India in U.S., for example, said Mr. Kumar had been fired this year as chairman of the Nassau Health Care Corporation. In fact, he had resigned.

In his statement to the police, they say, Mr. Kumar said that the articles had made him miserable -- even physically ill -- and that he had disappeared to get the police to investigate who was behind the reports.

''I wanted it to appear I was kidnapped so that maybe I would finally get someone to investigate,'' he said in his statement. ''I did all of this because of my fear and shame about all of those false news articles.''

On the evening of July 8, Mr. Kumar met with a business associate at the Nostalgia Diner in Syosset to talk about the articles. In his statement to the police, he said he decided afterward to have another friend drive him to the Skyway Motel in Queens, where he registered under a false name, stayed in his room and did not eat. On July 10, while watching a TV report about his disappearance, Mr. Kumar decided to return home. He phoned his wife from Valley Stream State Park, and she called the police. The police say they do not believe that Mr. Kumar's family knew where he was until then.

The story Mr. Kumar told was elaborate, but it fell apart quickly, the police said. Mr. Kumar said his kidnappers dumped him onto a grassy hill in the park, but the police said that was impossible because of the design of the van and the layout of the park. Mr. Kumar also said he knew it was Valley Stream State Park because of a sign, but that sign listed only park restrictions and had no name on it, the police said.

Today, his lawyer, Mr. Bloom, said he did not know whether Mr. Kumar had made up the kidnapping story, and complained that he was not present when the police took Mr. Kumar's statement.

Mr. Kumar also gave a videotaped confession, Ms. Watson said.

''I think this statement may end up not being admissible in court,'' Mr. Bloom said.

On Mr. Kumar's street today, many neighbors said they were dumbfounded by his arrest but had suspected that his story was bogus.

''It didn't seem right to me when it was first reported,'' said George Eysser, a New York City firefighter. The Nassau police and the F.B.I. both said today that they would continue to look into Mr. Kumar's case. And in his statement to the police, Mr. Kumar encouraged them.

''I am still extremely upset about the articles being printed about me,'' he said, ''and I wish the proper authorities will still investigate this to have them stopped before they hurt my reputation or the reputation of others in the political sector and all other friends and neighbors.''
