Damato_1However, as of three days ago when this story first sort of broke, no contract with D'Amato had been signed...yet.


Says PPA prez Michael Bolcerek:  “There is no signed deal.”


D'Amato, noted for his brash...dare we say..."typical New Yorker" style...was a three-term Senator from New York and was particularly known for his filibustering stamina. He holds claim to the second and seventh longest filibusters in U.S. Senate history. He also holds claim to being the only person in the world that Wicked Chops Poker would make the following joke: "You say Damaatoe, I say Damahtoe." It's true.
