Grandinetti Remains Quiet of Facebook Loyalty to Her Master Dyster Overrides Ego

This just in… Niagara Falls city Councilwoman is still off Facebook!

While Niagara Falls Director of Community Development Seth Piccirillo was crowing in the media all week about attracting the attention of “important people” by taking a $10,000 grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation, poor Councilwoman Kristen Grandinetti is getting no love at all since banishing herself from Facebook on Aug 1.

Now her gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender fans, as well as those supporters of Planned Parenthood who had no problem with a video of one of that organization’s top executives eating salad and drinking a nice pinot grigio in some trendy dive while discussing the sale of body parts from aborted human fetuses, now no longer have a public forum with which to pat her back.

She got off of Facebook, she claimed, after accepting a challenge from someone “near and dear” to her, to the effect that she could not stay off of the popular social media site for 41 days running, from August 1 through the primary election on September 10.

And true to her word, we haven’t heard a peep out of her.

Grandinetti was known for her monumental oversharing on Facebook when it came to sexual politics and what she sees as the awfulness of the Roman Catholic Church. After she succeeded in being reelected last time, it only took her days to announce that she’d renounced the Catholic faith and become an Episcopalian, a member of a Buffalo congregation whose lesbian pastor and her live in lover were overjoyed by the passage of New York’s same sex marriage law.

The sex talk didn’t always go over well with her employer – she teaches kindergarten in the Niagara Falls City School District – or with her political Svengali, Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster.

Dyster has enough headaches dealing with the consequences of his own shaky grasp of reality to have to worry about Grandinetti’s almost weekly outbursts. Numerous sources have confirmed that it was the mayor, who has been looking less and less like a sure thing in the September 10 primary here, who ordered Grandinetti to give Facebook a rest.
