Good morning, folks. It's fine weather for an election, isn't it? I'm talking about the one today in Jersey City, the race between incumbent Mayor Jerry Healy and challenger Steve Fulop.
Now, GA does not believe that a Hoboken blogger should endorse another another city's mayoral candidate. Oh, no.
So when my friends in Jersey City ask me who they should vote for, I tell them: "Don't ask me! It's your choice: either the naked, drunk guy who says three Hispanic girls stole his towel and took $46K from Beth Mason for some future 'favor' from the HCDO or the Iraq war veteran.
Now, Horsey was kind enough to note that it was GA who exposed the $46K donation (probably $52K when all is said and done). The so-called mainstream local media will never acknowledge the Reform blogs; not when they are getting hefty ad revenues from the politicians these blogs sharply criticize.
So GA wasn't surprised when my friend Al Sullivan wrote this:
Money had been traveling from bigwigs into both races, including more than $40,000 donated by Hoboken Councilwoman Beth Mason and her husband to the Healy campaign, according to two Mason political operatives.Note the "more than $40,000" description is by-design, meant to soften the impact of the actual figure and place no limit on the amount the Masons will ultimately give Healy; the legal maximum is $52,000. Now the next part is interesting, it's spin planted by the "two Mason political operatives":
