Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has come up with a novel way to dig up dirt on GOP opponent Chele Chiavacci Farley: She’s hired a Wall Street headhunter who once shared a Hamptons house with Farley.
Gillibrand, up for re-election, has hired Regina Glocker to do opposition research on Farley — and she’s been calling top Wall Street execs trying to dredge up dirt. Gillibrand and Glocker go back — they were roommates at Dartmouth in the ’80s, and Glocker was in a Hamptons summer share house with Farley in 1998, we’re told.
Glocker works for high-end financial exec search firm Hedley May, and is presumably helping Gillibrand because of her extensive Wall Street contacts.
The source added, “Glocker is being talked about on Wall Street as Gillibrand’s hatchet woman.” Other sources insist Glocker — who didn’t comment to Page Six — is working in an unofficial capacity.
A spokesman for Gillibrand said, “Senator Gillibrand has not in any manner engaged any outside person or firm, paid or unpaid, to conduct opposition research; nor does she have plans to do so.”
Glocker’s boss, Hedley May co-founder Anthony May said, “Hedley May is a nonpolitical and nonpartisan organization and therefore does not act for any political organization in either a paid or pro bono capacity. Members of the firm supporting any political party in any way are doing so in a personal capacity only.”
Farley, who is married to Wall Street lawyer Richard Farley, a Democrat with longstanding ties to the Kennedys, didn’t comment.
