Kessel, LaFave fallout


Fred Dicker's talk radio show this morning was a Richie Kessel, Glenn LaFave bash-fest.
Mr. Kessel, the head of the New York Power Authority who announced yesterday that he was stepping down, has long been a target of Mr. Dicker, who led the way in reporting the inspector general's investigation.
Mr. Dicker gleefully reported this morning that a news release from NYPA didn't include the word "regretfully" accepting his resignation.
The case of Mr. LaFave, the former head of the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District. also got some airtime on the show.
I got an anonymous letter this morning, typed on a type-writer, that said: "I hope that Glenn LaFave has a fair chance to defend himself. He is the most unlikely of people to be in this situation and I think that the people who worked with him when he was a U.S. Immigration officer as I did would agre. He seemed to be a straight shooting upstanding citizen."
Indeed. We're trying to give him a chance to defend himself. He hasn't responded to phone calls or visits to his home. We're not giving up yet.
