New York - Following an unsuccessful bid to get himself on the ballot for a delegate’s seat at this week’s upcoming judicial convention, former Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver is still attempting to wield his power over the state judiciary by running a proxy, his Chief of Staff, Judy Rapfogel.

NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1g3UKaf) reports that Rapfogel’s name was placed into nomination by Silver’s Harry S. Truman Democratic Club for the vote which is set to take place on Thursday.

Rapfogel, who has maintained a public silence on both her William Rapfogel’s conviction on theft of about $9M from the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty and Silver’s indictment on fraud and extortion charges, rakes in over $180,000 annually as Silver’s chief of staff.

Do you always accuse people without a shred of evidence? She was investigated. There is nothing, so get over it already.

Do you work and does your spouse work? Do each of you know everything the other does? I highly doubt it. It's Erev Rosh HaShana. Act like a mentch.

Things like this rarely work. The guy used to have power and so people would pay him money or cooperate with him. He naturally thought they did this because he is a swell fellow. Now, other than blackmail, he has no power. Now nobody will work with him or give him a penny.

He went from 60mph to 0 in the blink of any eye.

Hardly the case in this instance, Billy and Judy worked hand in hand together with Shelly, now its time to cut a deal, do your time and go on with life

Goniff Shelly 'the Shill ' Silver, still trying to manipulate the system. And the Rapfogels gave Bernie Madoff a bad name. Disgusting machers. So many frum Yidden work hard and live in poverty while these bums strut around and flaunt their riches.

Yes, we work and if he came home with handbags that cost 5 thousand dollars each, bought me exquisite jewelry, luxury cars and bought our kids new homes in cash, I would question it! The Feds are not finished investigating her, so don't cry anti semitism when you read the details. Unfortunately, she won't be able to live in the same prison with Billy.

Do you know her, or anything about her that would lead you to speak Loshon Horoh, especially that there is no proof of any wrongdoing on her part?

Try actually showing a little "common sense" for once.

Her friends in the building have known her for years. They talk and they know what they're talking about. If she were a goy, you would have her sent to jail. The IRS and FBI are working together still.

Common sense tells me if my husband is in jail for stealing millions of dollars from poor Jews, I should watch my conspicuous consumption practices and not brag about material items. That's common sense to me. The FBI found millions of dollars hidden in her bedroom in one of her houses.

#11, if you read the papers, it said $400 thousand. not millions.
#10, people in her neighborhood do not say that she flaunts anything. if anything she dresses quite modestly and not showy at all. I have seen her here and there for many years. never looked showy.
as barryls1 said, its erev rosh hashonah, enough loshon hora. use common sense and even if you don't like them, pray for them. I have prayed for people I don't particularly like. I pray that they should be well and things should go well for them. if you have rachmanus on others, Hashem will have rachmanus on you.

Don't tell me for whom I should pray. Her husband stole millions from poor Jews. Jews who could not afford to eat and pay their measly rent. Judy should give back the millions her husband stole so that poor Jews can live a little.

and the money was in a vacation house that wasn't used often, especially outside of the summer and then mostly weekends.

People get jealous and talk, Do you honestly think a Jew gets a break from the IRS & FBI? That's laughable. If they had any evidence against her, it would have come out already.

Also, if you don't know her personally, you are just listening to idle gossip from people who like to kick others when they're down.
