Silence of an empty chair

The news of an investigation into the blank spaces of Michael Russo’s “Russo for Hoboken,” campaign account back to 2009 when FBI Solomon Dwek was in these parts echoed into the City Council chambers Wednesday and the typical Russo bombast did not reach the public’s ears.

The Russo clan’s reply to the problems of the missing deposits and withdrawals was this:
Councilman Michael Russo’s chair was empty Wednesday
There’s been no press release from the Old Guard 
No TV press conference called 
No public proclamations it will be “cleared up.” 
Oddly, there’s been nothing but silence 
(and lots of deletions from’s Hoboken forum).  
Which may speak loudest of all.
