Wayne Barrett is an investigative reporter who's written about New York for more than four decades and did the first major pieces on Donald Trump in the 1970s. A senior editor at the Village Voice until 2010, he's also written for The Daily Beast, New York magazine, The Nation, and NY Daily News. His books include City for Sale, Rudy!: An Investigative Biography, and Grand Illusion, which collectively covered the Koch through the Giuliani administrations. The New York Times called him "the master of chronicling the underbelly of New York City politics."

Th repulican clan. If you are reading this you got my message. If your democrap you will be ignored or made fun of. Speak at your own will. Any talk about crooked Hillbilly will be unexeptable unless its something negative. Have fun amd go Trump.
