Worcester Elected A Junkbox To The School Committee Over A College Professor Because Everything Mike Gaffney Touched Turned To Shit

So election night in Worcester was a complete abortion. Worcester elected a junkbox who barely graduated from high school and claims to own a business that doesn’t really exist, to the School Committee – Dante Comparetto. He knocked off a college professor, Donna Colorio, in order to do so.
But you know what we’re not gonna do? Sit here and whine about it. We won’t be using hashtags, blaming the Russians, knitting pink pussy hats, or using this as an excuse to protest. Because unlike the morons from last year who couldn’t come to terms with the reality that many viewed their candidate as repulsive, we respect the will of the people and aren’t afraid to analyze election results honestly. Worcester wants a junkbox who encouraged kids to skip school and criticized the superintendent for punishing them, so that’s exactly what they’re gonna get.
So how did this happen? Simple – this was a Gaffneylash. Literally everything he touched turned to shit. This is 99.9% his fault. Here’s the City Council results:
Joe Petty – 10,026
Kate Toomey – 9,547
Gary Rosen – 8,964
Khrystian King – 8,689
Moe Bergman – 8,197
Konnie Lukes – 7,092
Ben Straight – 5,335
Mike Gaffney – 4,585
Last time around Gaffney finished in 2nd and Konnie Lukes finished in 3rd. This time Konnie wasn’t even close to 5th place. She lost by over 1,000 votes to Moe Bergman, and over 2,500 votes to Kate Toomey, both of whom she beat last time. If someone like Joe O’Brien had run she probably would’ve been voted off. Why? Because she was viewed as associated with Gaffney. People showed up at the polls specifically to vote against him, because they were turned off by the obnoxious Cheers videos and the constant grandstanding.
Oh look, he took down all the videos. It’s almost like he now realizes how stupid those were.
It wasn’t that people disliked his politics. It was that people couldn’t get past the obnoxious, whiny, childish way he delivered his message, so they weren’t even paying attention to whatever his message was. The guy who called his supporters “stupid uneducated morons” got more than double his votes. People would rather be insulted by the Mayor than listen to Gaffney’s voice.
And make no doubt about it, Gaffney didn’t drop out of this race to “pursue new opportunities.” He dropped out because he knew he was going to lose. That’s just a fact. To get elected he would’ve had to have knocked out Konnie Lukes. No way in hell he was gonna do that, and he knew it. He saw the writing on the wall. But he had too much pride and arrogance to stay in the race and lose. That’s all that ultimately mattered to him – his pride. So he said he was dropping out because at least then he could pretend it was doing so on his own terms. At the end of the day the only thing that ultimately mattered to Gaffney was that he had to make it look like he was in control. He wasn’t.
His wife Coreen, who was “MURDED” by a corrupt joke of a politician who once said, “I’d like to see a penis do that” at a City Council meeting, had to point out that their run was “over by design”:
Translation – we could’ve won if we wanted to, but we CHOSE not to get elected. It was by design. We’re always in control.
The fact of the matter is that they weren’t though. Coreen did significantly worse in her D4 race than Jackie Kostas did four years ago, despite the fact that Jackie spent zero time campaigning:
Titi Ho – 1,090
Coreen Gaffney – 318
In District 5 Paul Franco, a really good guy who has no association whatsoever with Gaffney, went down like a ton of bricks because the MSM tied them together:
Matt Wally – 2,695
Paul Franco – 1,917
Then there’s the School Committee. Donna Colorio finished 2nd last time. No one ever goes from 2nd to voted out, especially when they’ve done nothing wrong like Colorio. But once again, they tied her to Gaffney, and she went down with the Titanic too:
Brian O’Connell – 9,084
Jack Foley – 8,616
John Monfredo- 8,489
Molly McCullough – 8,092
Dante Comparetto – 7,894
Diana Biancheria – 7,807
Donna Colorio – 7,516
She deserved better than this.
This is ultimately the legacy the Gaffney’s have left Worcester with. Their insane rantings, which we wisely urged them not to engage in several times, destroyed not only themselves, but others who wanted nothing to do with them. Hope it was worth it.
The only good part about this election is now we have a villain again. Politics has gotten boring without Tracy Novick doing insane shit on the School Committee. It’s almost a guarantee that Dante will find a way to top her, and then two years from now we get to overthrow him all over again, and we won’t have Gaffney to fuck it up this time.
The bottom line is that Gaffney had a lot of potential. He’s smart, successful, and actually was the voice of the people. But he let it all get to his head and instead of being a refined politician, he tried to become Turtleboy. But the people didn’t need a Turtleboy elected to office. We just needed someone who represented our values and delivered our message in an appropriate, measured way.
