Dominic Cappella Targeted, Debate Scrapped

   I received the following from the Cappella camp.  The verbal assault from Floyd Tally signals one thing: there is trouble in the Evans camp.

Assistant Business Administrator Domenic Cappella and two campaign staffers arrived at the Stanley S. Holmes Village Community Room twenty minutes early for the scheduled 6:30pm Mayoral Debate.  They were met by independent candidate Joseph Polillo, several concerned residents, and employees of the Atlantic City Housing Authority.  Word began to spread that the debate had been cancelled by the Authority and all visitors were told to leave. 


Amid brief complaints from residents irritated that the function was being dismissed at the last minute, former city employee Floyd Tally burst through the door and made a bee-line for Domenic Cappella.  What followed was a six minute long tirade of obscenities and verbal ridicule followed by very animated death threats mixed with promises of physical harm.  Mr. Cappella remained seated and calm as the situation unfolded.  An off-duty Atlantic City police officer present for the event expertly diffused the tensions and convinced Mr. Tally and two other individuals accompanying him to leave the building. 


Shortly after the stunning display of aggression, Mr. Cappella and Mr. Polillo noted the absence of Mayor Evans and former Mayor Langford.  As the crowd of supporters and family members loyal to disgraced former City Council President Craig Callaway grew, it became obvious the debate was in fact cancelled and the time was appropriate to leave.  The verbal onslaught continued, albeit more subdued, as Mr. Cappella made his way through the offensive crowd to his vehicle.


Mr. Tally was terminated from his City position after various run-ins with law enforcement disqualified him from holding a municipal job.  Tally has been indicted, along with David and Jihad Callaway, for crimes against a City Councilman and all three men are presently awaiting trial.  Tally and both Callaways, along with several other known holdovers and cronies from the crumbling Callaway political machine, have been recently seen working out of a windowless Mississippi Avenue address being rented by the campaign of Mayor Scott Evans.  “If this doesn’t prove to everybody that the Callaways hate me and are behind the Mayor, I don’t know what will!” said Cappella just before exiting the meeting room.

  1. Napolean “The Intimidator” Capella is suddenly sensitive to verbal assaults? Wow, the irony is stunning.

  2. Have you seen this guy Tally… big bad looking dude. That be enough to make me nervous.

    That would have looked good on Tally’s record, beating up a 65 year old man because you didn’t like what he said.

  3. This just goes to prove that the Callaway Clan is still active and bullying people all over the city. It’s yet another reason NOT to vote for Evans who is their puppet. Do you want more of this? Vote for the second-dumbest mayor we’ve ever had, just after Levy, who was another Callaway butt buddy.
