Blood in the Water
If it weren't so dead serious it would be funny.
For web-acronym junkies, 'funny' as in 'ROFLMAO'-- not the lesser 'LOL' or even 'ROFL'.
The BANG! POW! BOOM! at City Hall yesterday raised a mushroom cloud in cyberspace that's billowed into today, and the toxic political discourse in our city will sustain a black rain over Hoboken into the foreseeable future.
I can tell you that because Grafix Avenger had nearly as many hits yesterday as it did during the height of the NJDC Mason-smear scandal. (For new readers, that's when Beth Mason fed a Washington PAC she'd donated $1,000 to a smear piece on GA, with the help of NJDC Board of Directors' and Mason fundraiser, Larry Stempler)
Now GA knows a little bit about the events yesterday via those willing to comment, but since the LAW is involved- as in 'lawsuits'- the suit nobody wants to wear, I will keep my trap shut.
But I can tell you the whole thing is starting to smell. Bad.
One source used the phrase "political backdrop" to describe... I'll stop there.
But if you don't think POLITICS is at the center of the reaction to this incident, has already tainted it for anyone living within the zip code 07030, that an investigation in this bitter, divisive political climate is possible where relatives of those hostile to Director Sacs are serving side-by-side with investigators and animus toward Zimmer in the police department runs wide and deep.... if you think that it's possible to have this matter OBJECTIVELY investigated by City of Hoboken authorites... then you are NUTS.
Or you're Beth Mason.
From her 'statement' on Mason411:
It looks like she got her bucket of chum, gift-wrapped and tied with a bow.
As usual, she and her paid army will conflate and distort and spin and hope the black rain lasts forever. Because they're not interested in the truth. They're interested in holding onto power. And destroying their enemies.
I don't think this will get her or her City Council cohorts re-elected. But it will make for some disgusting weeks ahead.
