|City Council Dumb-inatrix|
GA hears there is serious strong-arming of Hudson County 'bosses' to support Ruben Ramos; we may be calling this election cycle: Invasion of the Carpetbaggers.
We've already got Union City's Brian Stack on the Ruben train and GA hears that North Bergen's Mayor Sacco is being pressured to support Ruben, which brings Paul Swibinski into Hoboken's election...
The Carpetbaggers will bring troops, cash and Hoboken will see voter fraud the likes of which we've never seen. The Carpetbaggers believe they can beat Zimmer by suppressing her vote. Dirty tricks galore.
No where is the heat more intense than inside of Hoboken.
GA hears that "everyone" is being strong-armed to get behind Ruben, and that people are even being "threatened". According to my source, one of them is 4th Ward City Councilman Tim Occhipinti.
Occhipinti was threatened with a recall election if he doesn't support Ruben Ramos.
GA hears Tim told "them" to go to Hell.
Good work, Timmy! I'd tell them to go to Hell too.
In fact, I'd run for Mayor just to teach those jerks a lesson.
Of course Timmy may be worried, so GA expects him to fall in line and follow orders. In fact, we may see signs that he's caved to the threat.
Or he might be pissed enough to ask Beth Mason, threatened with her own recall, to back him for mayor.
Then what would The Carpetbaggers do?
