DA Dan Donovan Wins Special Election To Replace Michael Grimm In Congress

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Voters picked Republican Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan Tuesday night to replace former Congressman Michael Grimm.

Donovan gained national attention when the grand jury he impaneled did not indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner.

He defeated City Councilman Vincent Gentile (D-23rd), the seniormost member of the City Council and a former state senator.

With 98 percent of the vote counted, Donovan had 60 percent of the vote, compared to 39 percent for Gentile.

“Tonight is not just a victory for my campaign, but a victory for America,” Donovan said in his victory speech. “The hardworking men and women of the middle class spoke loud and clear.”

The 11th congressional district was seat left vacant when Grimm resigned earlier this year after pleading guilty to federal tax evasion charges in December.


“We’ve helped make Staten Island the safest community and the safest big city in all of America,” Donovan said while casting his ballot at P.S. 13. “If you look at my opponent’s record as a legislator, he raised people’s taxes. That’s something that I don’t want to do.”

“People are excited, and I’m excited, too. It really is, I think, going to be a great day,” said Gentile, who voted at his alma mater, Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn.

Special Election In Staten Island, Part Of Brooklyn To Replace Michael Grimm

The heavily Republican district re-elected Grimm even after his federal indictment in 2014 so political experts say Gentile faces long odds in the race.

Most of the district is on Staten Island, and Gentile is from Brooklyn. But he did not think that’s an issue.

“Because I got elected three times in Staten Island,” he told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell. “I representend Staten Island for a number of years in the state Senate.”

Also in the race was Green Party candidate James Lane, CBS2’s Diane Macedo reported.

An extremely light turnout was expected in the race, 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck reported.

Watch Injury Reserve’s “Washed Up” Video

Directed by: Vibes n Stuff

Let us proudly introduce you to the Arizona trio, Injury Reserve. They first caught our attention with their “Black Sheep” video. But it seems like they’re going in a different direction from the boom bap to the alternative. The first single from their upcoming project, Live From The Dentist Office, was the social media themed video, “Whatever Dude.” This second single is an introduction warning to their town of Phoenix.

Ritchie With a T and Stepa J Groggs address topics like the youth following their parents when it comes to thinking for themselves and fans who flip flop in support as often as politicians. But in the end, they, too, fall in rank with the rest of the locals. No one is perfect. The slow motion video allows the exposure you get to their thoughts to sink in with maximum force. The video ends with some show footage and what possibly is a snippet from another song. Parker Corey’s production creates a similar sensation when watching a Kubrick film where you can’t tell what’s real and what’s fantasy.

But besides all that analysis, Injury Reserve wants you to know that, “Phoenix, Arizona f*cking suuuucks.”

Bryan Hahn ain’t wishy washy. He is pro-eating Reese’s from the outside-in, now and forever. He’s on Twitter (@notupstate).

Jason Alexander Claims That He Actually Discovered Taylor Swift Back In 2007…

We don’t know if we believe this…

Taylor Swift may not be 100% country anymore, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t owe her fame to her original southern twang!

Tay Tay first made a name for herself back in 2006 with her debut single Tim Megraw, but now one celebrity is claiming that he actually first discovered the 25-year-old.

While we were under the assumption that Scott Borchetta found and signed Taylor, Jason Alexander recently revealed that he put T-Swift on the map when he cast her in one of his music videos!

Jason apparently starred in and directed Brad Paisley‘s 2007 hit Online and put Taylor and Kellie Pickler in the vid as extras.

Since Taylor already had a radio-friendly track on her hands by that point, we think she was well on her way to super-stardom… but the publicity couldn’t have hurt!

Ch-ch-check out Taylor play backup to Brad and Jason (below)!!!
