Marty Golden went on the Brian Lehrer radio show. Golden said, “A number of them that drove the planes into the — 9-11 — into the building at World Trade Center that killed 3,000 Americans — are you ready for this? They were in this community, they lived here in Bay Ridge, they were visiting in this community.”
Golden probably didn’t think anyone in Bay Ridge was going to hear the Lehrer show.

It’s 15 years after 9/11 and Bay Ridge hasn’t had an incident from a terrorist. We purchased a home here seven years ago. People have to stop being afraid and live their life. The people that are here in Bay Ridge are our neighbors.
Staffer, John Quaglione didn’t apologize for Golden’s blabber, which offended many. Instead, Quaglione says that Senator Golden misspoke and referred to one of the men involved in the 1993 bombing that killed six. No apology was posted to Golden’s facebook or twitter page either. Typical politician.
Max Jaeger was the only reporter to share the story (thank goodness for Max).
Ironically, the Brooklyn Eagle didn’t cover the story and we got the same old same – PRESS RELEASE POLITICS. I don’t understand how these reporters don’t WANT to tell us the news. Paula Katinas printed this story (it’s not much different than the story printed on February 3rd by the same paper) and then there was also the Chinese New Year story even though Chinese New Year is long gone.
