Geez, how pathetic is this? His boss is caught up in a scandal where he was dragging his feet on a sexual harassment scandal involving another elected Democrat, so what does this idiot do? Goes online pretending to be a woman and defends the pig.
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has a strong female voice defending him against allegations he improperly funneled hush money to two of Assemblyman Vito Lopez’s sex-harassment accusers.
The thing is, Silver’s “female’’ supporter is a man — and he’s one of the powerful Democrat’s own staffers.
Bill Eggler, 48, a longtime legislative writer for Silver, is behind a Web alter ego, “Sophia Walker,” who lashes out at anyone who dares suggest his boss did anything wrong in orchestrating a secret $103,080 payout to the former Brooklyn Democratic Party leader’s accusers, The Post has learned.
A friend of Eggler’s innocently let the cat out of the bag by publicly identifying him as blogger Sophia Walker in a recent posting.
One comment that “Sophia’’ posted on Sept. 5 to the Albany Times Union’s Capitol Confidential blog defends Silver’s handling of the payout.
“This entire affair is nothing more than election-year scandal-mongering, all of which will fade away after the taxpayers foot the bill for a costly, perfunctory and pointless investigation that will find no significant wrongdoing on Silver’s part,” it reads.
“Sophia” even targeted The Post.
“Kudos to The Post for attempting to keep this faux scandal alive by any means necessary,” The Last Goddess Magazine, which lists “Sophia Walker” as its editor, said on its Web page Thursday.
Anything posted online in comments sections should be viewed with a grain of salt, especially if you read political blogs or news stories and you see obvious campaign talking points. I wouldn’t doubt it if campaign aides all are using sock puppets.
Here’s Eggler. Dude looks pretty creepy.
Here’s an interview with him. Yup, he’s one weird dude.
3. What is your most common nightmare?
I have killed someone, usually a woman. I haven’t gotten caught yet, but the authorities are closing in. I feel trapped, guilty, hopeless. It’s the only recurring dream I have ever had, and I’ve had it dozens of times.
