Author Biography

By day, Gene Berardelli is a street-smart New York trial attorney who has earned millions for his clients. He has become a notable NY Election Law specialist whose opinions have been cited in scholarly works, presented in the news, and featured in print articles. By night, he is a national award-winning podcaster, political columnist, and an all-around sarcastic content creator; focusing satirically on the decay plaguing today’s politics, society, and culture. Gene’s singular wit is the product of his decade-long involvement in institutional politics, where he served in various legal and political roles in what he calls the “Peoples’ Republic of New York.” Gene’s proudest accomplishment is, undoubtedly, being Marcos's uncle!
