G. Steven Pigeon
Golisano Special To Air This Week by Staff Who is this guy, Steve Pigeon, the key behind-the-scenes operator in the recent State Senate coup, the top political adviser to billionaire Sabres' owner Tom Golisano, and the former Erie County Democratic Committee chairman? Pigeon has a way of ruffling feathers in the political arena, and his most recent venture in Albany certainly ruffled a few feathers in the halls of the State Legislature and beyond. Not only were some politicians fuming, many across the state blamed the coup and its leaders with paralyzing state government and got Pigeon some nasty headlines, much to the delight of his political foes. But if anything, Pigeon is a survivor , and actually he's much more than that. Even his adversaries concede that Steve Pigeon is a formidable political strategist who has forged many strong alliances over the years and who brings talent and cunning to his struggles. "I believe we have forever ended the three-men-in-a-room style of government," says Pigeon of the coup he helped mastermind that briefly won control of the State Senate for the GOP with two Democratic defectors, adding that "we've changed the way business is done and people will see what a difference it will make. 2, says Pigeon. "These spots will let Tom get his side out on the Senate coup, the Buffalo Sabres, the misrepresentations that have been made, and the selective prosecution by certain boards of election," says Pigeon. And Pigeon adds the local series may well be a harbinger of things to come, indicating Golisano is considering doing a full-time show, here and maybe across the state, in the near future. Meanwhile, Pigeon has landed with one of the two Democrats who joined the coup, Sen. Pigeon now works as Espada's counsel ($150,000) and earlier this week held, by all accounts, a successful fund-raiser for Espada here in Buffalo at Pigeon's Admiral's Walk residence. Pigeon is hosting another fund-raiser for Espada on Wednesday night in New York. Gary Parenti, a Pigeon ally, notes that Pigeon has a long relationship with Cuomo, dating back to when Andrew's father, former Gov. It was recently made public that Pigeon has formed two new political funds, with Buffalo as a base. One of the new funds, the Upstate Leadership Committee, will work on bringing business people together to help create jobs and business opportunities upstate and to back candidates who support that agenda. Buffalo businessman Anthony J. Baynes will be chairman of the fund, says Pigeon, who has attacked the Erie County Board of Elections as pursuing "selective prosecution" against him in the matter of campaign filings for two other political funds. Steve Pigeon has a full political plate these days, and that's just the way he likes it. You can be sure of one thing about the West Seneca native: he won't go silently into the night as some of his adversaries have hoped for.

Golisano started Responsible New York in July 2008 with a $5 million contribution, and the committee, managed in league with G. Steven Pigeon, spent $4.1 million last year attempting, with mixed results, to influence elections involving the State Legislature.
But Republican commissioners offered a different recollection when the board met in June, shortly after Golisano and Pigeon helped to engineer the defection of two Democratic senators to the GOP side, contending no such referral took place. At first, before the June 8 coup, Republicans wanted to pursue the investigation of Golisano and Pigeon -two people who helped finance the Democratic takeover of the Senate from the GOP last fall. Pigeon reiterated his longtime stance that Responsible New York has acted within the law. "There is no evidence of coordination from the time we formed Responsible New York," he said. News that Responsible New York issued a $950,000 refund to Golisano is bound to raise questions about Golisano's intentions, but Pigeon said it should not be read as a sign he is withdrawing from politics. "There's zero retreat," he said. Rather, Responsible New York returned the money so Golisano can make better use of it, Pigeon said. While Golisano plots his next move, Pigeon has landed a high-paying job with the Senate as Espada's chief counsel.
