Graphic Facebook Message From Cohoes Mayor Made Public by Times Union

Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse is back in the spotlight again, and reacting angrily, after a no-holds-barred Facebook message to Assemblyman John McDonald's brother, Jeremy was made public in a Times-Union story.

In the voice message, obtained by the Times-Union, he calls his fellow Democrat a "scumbag" and a "liar."

Morse has said a heated on-line exchange between the two led to this voice message.

In a Facebook post, Morse says "this is how crazy the world has become."

He goes on to say "this man" has done more to destroy me than anyone, and won't stop.

The whole thing appears to be in regard to an e-mail from then-mayor John McDonald in 2000 about cutting back on overtime for Cohoes firefighters.

McDonald says he doesn't know why he's being attacked at this time, since he's not endorsing anyone in the city's four-way mayor's race.

He says this is just another embarrassing black eye for the city of Cohoes.
