Regarding Bob Levy
REALITY CHECK ...
It's rather amazing to see all the
"Jimmy Come Lately's" who are breathlessly calling for Atlantic City Mayor Bobv
Levy to resign.
Even after everything that has occurred
over the past almost two years ... Have you noticed that The Press of Atlantic
City has still NOT called for Levy to resign?
They have suffered too great an
embarrassment and have a personal stake in the Levy debacle to be objective.
They stumped for Levy. They ignored his daily absence from City Hall and his
The Press Editorial Page has been more
objective then the news staff ... but they were very late coming to the
You have had a front row seat to The
Truth on the Levy matter since before he was elected ... here on 1020
WIBG Radio and at
I clearly advised the public that there
was a serious competency/capacity issue in the first place regarding Levy. And,
further that Craig Callaway had secured total control of Levy and hence
acted as Mayor and decider in all things from the Atlantic City government
Now, all of a sudden, everyone and I
mean everyone ... that is except for State Senator Sonny McCullough is piling on
for Levy to step down.
For your information, Levy will be
stepping down ... as early as tomorrow. Not because he wants to ... But,
because he has no choice in the matter.
Levy is under serious federal
Levy is unfit to serve any longer in
this important position. Everyone has known this for a long time ... But, for
some reason, they let this tragedy play out at least a year longer then it
Candidly, Levy never really served even
a single day in the position at all. Others ... namely, Craig Callaway and
Craig Callaway political associates have run City Hall with (literally) a Bob
Levy rubber stamp and ink pad ... and, on most occasions, not even bothering to
pretend that Levy was in charge ... Because, obviously he was not!
My many phones have been ringing off of
the hook ... and, my e-mail has filled to capacity on a daily basis. I have
answered this same question several thousand times. "How does it feel to be
right from second one about this Levy debacle, and, watching the entire nation
swarm into Atlantic City and in most all cases credit someone else for your
My answer is simple ... I am use to
To break it down ... Last October 30,
2006 ... and even before that ... that was merely the day that myself and my
Brother Don went public with the results of our extensive and accurate
investigation into Levy's phony claims of Special Forces, Green Beret
Something we haven't revealed until
this morning, Don Hurley told Levy to his face in June of 2005 that he was NOT a
Green Beret! You should have seen the fear in Levy's face ... him fully
realizing that we knew his BIG LIE and that the whole charade was going to come
We could have broken the Levy phony
Green Beret story long before October 30, 2006. However, because we knew the
seriousness of the charge, and, how life altering it would be for Levy and his
family ... so, we did the right thing and we took our time and proceeded in a
I made the first contact to real Green
Beret Don Bendell. He told me everything, however, he made a promise to Derek
Harper at The Press, that he had the "Bendell" exclusive. I respected
However, The Press of Atlantic City got
cold feet and chickened out when Kim Baldwin sent her infamous threatening
letter ... a letter, that I firmly believe will land her in big trouble one day
in the future.
The difference was ... Harry and Don
Hurley could not be threatened and did not back down.
Hence, we broke the story first. First
at HarryHurley.com and then shortly therafter with Green Beret Don Bendell here
at 1020 WIBG Radio.
The Atlantic City Press followed
about two weeks later. I'll never be able to prove this ... But, there is a
strong likelihood that had not Harry and Don Hurley broke the Levy phony Green
Beret story, The Press of Atlantic City never would have.
They knew of many atrocities happening
with the Levy government and either didn't report, or, under reported ... I
believe in designed effort to protect Levy and to keep Levy in office for as
long as possible.
In the run-up to our breaking news
report, which make no mistake was the first report, confirming Levy's problems
... we received nothing but grief for it.
We were threatened .. in some cases
physically ... we were called hateful names and received other threats about how
much trouble we were in and worse. We were told that we would have to move five
states away and that wouldn't be far enough.
We were threatened that Levy had
written proof that he was a Green Beret.
Further, do you know that even after
Don and I exposed Levy as a military fraud ... Levy allowed himself to be
introduced in Atlantic City at a military gathering as a Ranger and a
One quick item, which I have never
spent an appropriate amount of time on ... the local military organizations who
intentionally sat on their hands regarding phony Levy claims, I say shame on
you. And, even worse, some folks with a military background actually served as
Levy enablers and defended Levy's conduct. You did Levy no good with this, and,
you dealt the public a huge disservice.
So, the reality is that at the time we
broke the news ... we received all the blame and threats about what was to come
our way. So, then we did get the credit/blame for breaking the Levy
But ... now, that the TRUTH has reached
that glorious 3rd and final stage ... becoming SELF EVIDENT ... Others are
taking the credit.
So, in the end, we received the blame
when we were first for being WRONG, when in truth, we were completely right ...
then, in the end, we received little, to no credit for being right from the
And, it even goes further then this
outrage ... Now, certain liars are saying that we didn't even break the Levy
story at all. Which is really funny, because they are the same people who said
how much trouble we were in for breaking the story in the first
It's almost impossible to follow this
twisted, Orwellian logic that presently exists in our region.
A Wednesday report that I will
file later this week goes into some detail about the Levy matter and how
Jim Whelan went from Bob Levy creator ... to Bob Levy enabler ... to now
relentlessly calling for Bob Levy to resign. It's an amazing trick and Whelan
has pulled it off ... while Sonny McCullough blinked.
It's beyond ironic ... it's down
right bizarre. Whelan gave us Levy in the first place, and now Whelan is
capitalizing on a daily basis and scoring huge election points for his
(reversal) position regarding Levy. Look this Wednesday for all the details
regarding Whelan and Levy and more.
