The issue is not whether a mistake was made but what happened to correct it. Mr. Grimes comes out on top for his quick efficient response and for covering all associated costs. The town would be well advised to consider that when bidding future projects. " May 13, 09 5:17 PM

Southampton Town Supervisor Kabot, attorney give first interview on DWI arrest

Now that the (third) lawyer representing Supervisor Linda Kabot has declared her innocent of DWI, the charges should be dropped. Really. Logic is clearly on the side of innocence. If Ms. Kabot had been drinking she most certainly would have taken the breathalyzer test.

Then there’s that anonymous letter revealing that Supervisor candidate Anne Thorne-Holst was behind Kabot’s arrest. Talk about your smoking gun! To even imagine that this was planted to bolster the Supervisor’s claims of political sabotage is absurd indeed.

And finally there is the matter of the 4-1/2 minutes of missing video tape, footage that would no doubt clear Ms. Kabot beyond even a shadow of a doubt. I’m surprised that Mr. Keahon didn’t describe the reason the tape is “missing” since it shows Ms. Kabot riding a unicycle while simultaneously juggling no less than five running chainsaws.

Southampton Town Supervisor Kabot, attorney give first interview on DWI arrest

That's good to know." Sep 26, 09 9:43 PM

Do the research. Keahon has quite the record of representing the innocent including:

Daniel Pelosi's brother-in-law, a SH cop who coerced women into giving him sex while on duty. Keahon blamed it on Pelosi acting in revenge.

A federal jail guard convicted in the videotaped beatdown of a handcuffed inmate and then trying to cover up the attack. "This was a tragedy," said Cummings' lawyer, William Keahon. "These 10 seconds of his actions, which he thought were necessary, resulted in his conviction."

Zachary Gibian, who was convicted of second degree murder in the February 27, 2005 killing of his stepfather, a retired NYPD Officer. Keahon blamed the victim for the murder.

Officer Alexis Chaparro, who killed his wife, who was also a cop.

And so on ...
" Sep 26, 09 9:57 PM

The way things have gone so far, I would not be at all surprised if Ms. Kabot were to introduce legislation for the "abandonment of the breathalyzer standard in Southampton Town".

At the same time she could introduce legislation revoking the police's "authority to interfere in our daily lives, lay hands on us, beat us, and kill us."

Thanks highhat. I haven't laughed this hard since Cannuscio's bribery case was thrown out when the jury couldn't decide whether he had been offered one or was soliciting one.

Attorney: Linda Kabot will be vindicated

He meant to say "incarcerated"." Sep 29, 09 5:20 PM

When is the paper of record going to stop being the trumpet for Kabot's mouthpiece? We already know that her attorney has unilaterally determined her innocence.

Is the next article going to be devoted to his microscopic examination of the records of the WHB officers involved, or statements by family members attesting to her sobriety, or more insinuations of political sabotage?

How about a little journalistic restraint? Or maybe you should go the other way and do a profile of her attorney, he has quite a client list. I can only imagine that you won’t because that would insinuate guilt by association." Sep 29, 09 5:33 PM

"We have some pretty ugly "anonymous" allegations flying around"

We sure do: “After viewing the [video] tapes, I can say, with full confidence, that, after reviewing all the other evidence, there is not the slightest indication that she spoke with slurred speech, no evidence of bloodshot eyes, no staggering,” said attorney William Keahon, the third lawyer to represent Ms. Kabot in her DWI case. She is “innocent” of the charge, he later added.

"an elected public official who is refusing to provide relevant information"

Linda Kabot, and a breathalyzer?

Town housing officials walk out of civics meeting in East Quogue

The town built 11 "affordable" units in Bridgehampton and had a lottery to see who would get them. Only one Bridgehampton resident qualified, the rest of the units were given to outsiders - people form outside the town.

This didn't help Bridgehampton at all and only increased its density, traffic, and demand for services, both public and private. Real affordable housing would assist people who already live here and struggle to survive.

The ZBA is necessary because the town has an economically exclusionary minimum construction size of 1200 square feet for a single family dwelling. " Sep 30, 09 5:12 PM

Linda Kabot's DWI case expected to be moved to Riverhead Town Court

"Ms. Kabot, who was attending a 40th birthday party at her sister’s home in East Moriches on Sunday, September 6, had one normal-sized glass of wine at around 7 p.m., and a second glass between 9 and 9:15 p.m., Mr. Keahon said.'

Mr. Keahon's opinion carries less weight than a mosquito's bladder, and the speaking of it is in fact an professional ethical violation. But what would the Press print without him - recent history of drunk driving statistics and fatalities?" Sep 30, 09 5:23 PM

Nice rant. You completely avoided the issue of overstressed infrastructure - traffic, fire, police, and so on. In the meantime there are far too many people already living in Bridgehampton who could use real assistance but either make too little (or too much!) to qualify for "affordable" housing in their own community." Oct 1, 09 6:05 PM

Empty desks at the school are not a reason to build housing. That is only a reason to do something about the quality of educational at the school.

Once again, the infrastructure issues I raised are ignored. As is the issue of people in BH who could really use the help but for one reason or another did not qualify." Oct 1, 09 6:09 PM

So what you are saying is:

Kabot will make politically unpopular decisions (like no breathalyzer).
Kabot doesn't owe anybody.
Kabot IS Harry Truman.

Implied consent laws authorize or require the suspension of a driver's license for refusing a breathalyzer or blood test.

New York State Breath Test Refusal Penalties

* First Refusal: Minimum one-year driver's license revocation, $500 civil penalty
* Second Refusal (within 5 years): Minimum 18-month driver's license revocation, $750 civil penalty" Oct 1, 09 10:32 PM

People make mistakes. I don't judge people on their mistakes but on what they do to fix them. Getting caught DWI is not a reason to resign.

Failure to take responsibility for or even honestly address the situation is a clear violation of the public trust and reason for her to resign. Good thing the election is just around the corner and we can give her what she should have given herself: the boot.

The only rope here is the one Kabot is hanging herself with. " Oct 1, 09 10:42 PM


The day you obtained your driver’s license you had to fill out paperwork. During the excitement of that day, you signed a statement agreeing that if you were arrested for DWI, you would submit to a chemical test to determine your BAC or blood drug content. As a result, by merely operating a motor vehicle on the public highways of New York State , all motorist are presumed to have given “Implied Consent” for BAC testing. If an officer asks you to take a blood, breath or urine test, you are legally obligated to submit or you may face harsh penalties." Oct 1, 09 10:46 PM

Right. There is an absolute rash of DWI arrests of people who are not intoxicated, and this needs to be investigated at the highest levels immediately! Why isn't the Press all over this?! Maybe because it's in your imagination?" Oct 1, 09 10:52 PM

The outcome of this trial will depend on how muck Keahon can muck up the works with unethical pre-trial statements contaminating the potential jury pool, etc." Oct 1, 09 10:54 PM

Nuzzi isn't personally responsible for the financial mess in SHT, but he is a proud member of the party that created it and a faithful follower of their principles.

How does Nuzzi propose to get out of this financial mess? He doesn't. Instead he uses it to tar democrats. Typical republicanism. DUMP NUZZI.

Here is another idea: make politicians personally liable for financial mismanagement. Then we could go after Skip Heaney, who is responsible for putting all of us in this mess." Oct 2, 09 11:43 AM

I have an anonymous letter here that says highhatsize is a attorney who was disbarred for frivolous actions made in an attempt to get out of a DWI charge and is currently on the payroll of William Keahon, who hired him to sabotage the DA's case against Kabot in the press.
