Have you ever seen a campaign this sleazy and dirty?
The same people who want your vote for School Board brandishing swastikas on huge video screens outside of a SCHOOL.
The Move Forward campaign had a TRUCK with video and audio blasting in the quiet residential neighborhood outside the Hoboken Board of Education at 1115 Clinton Street. Attacking Kids First, Mayor Zimmer, Councilman Peter Cunningham and a Wallace School mom (me).
The Move Forward candidates were there- they walked right by the offensive images on their truck and into the building. Not a peep. GA heard Kids First was irate (will get details later), so was the Superintendent at this vile display of filthy campaign politics double-parked outside. He called the police and they booted the Move Forward truck off into the night.
After which I hear this disgusting Move Forward truck paraded up and down Washington Street.
That's what I hear; GA was at the ZBA last night; blissfully unaware of this revolting Move Forward stunt.
I'll get more details later- I hear there is a Beth Mason $7,000 'in-kind' campaign contribution on an ELEC report. Certainly enough to pay for filthy midnight flyers and a video truck.
I'll have more later.
Please CONDEMN this FILTHY CAMPAIGN with your VOTE.
VOTE KIDS FIRST.

Well, well.. what a surprise. WHO is flushing dough into the Move Forward Dirty Tricks campaign disguised as an 'in-kind' contribution? It isn't hard to figure out WHO is paying for the Move Forward Swastika-on-Wheels.
Take a look at the 'Move Forward' October 11, 2012 ELEC filing:
|Move Forward's R-1 ELEC- page 3 (4.1K on "t-shirts"... yeah, right)|
Their ELECs are named in a manner making them hard-to-find. To find Move Forwards ELECs click here: http://www.elec.state.nj.us/ELECReport/StandardSearch.aspx
Then, choose 'Committee' (not 'Candidate Name') then copy-paste: OLAND VAZQUEZ & MARKEVITCH MOVE FORWARD
Voila! Do you know what I DON'T see on those ELECs? An in-kind 'contribution' from Mason for use of her space at 1200 Washington Street for Move Forward's headquarters.
Can Mason's NON-PROFIT 501(c)(3), The Mason Civic League, Inc. declare an 'in-kind' contribution to a POLITICAL CAMPAIGN?
Um... that's illegal.
Don't ask Beth Mason- all SHE wants to talk about is 3 year-old poop in a punchbowl.

MSV is reporting about this obscene political stunt, with the Move Forward Campaign Manager in full denial mode that HE had anything to do with playing politics with swastikas:
Branco repeatedly said he didn't "know anything" about it including its cost.
Whatever you say, Joe.

Major New York City media outlets are hitting this story.
Hey folks, you can find the Move Forward POLITICAL campaign headquarters at 1200 Washington Street in an Art Gallery run by the Mason Civic League, Inc. which is a registered 501(c)(3).
Now, of course that's not exactly... law-abiding.
Have at it! Out local media doesn't give a crap.
