GA took notes from a chat with a dishy source on the Dark Side:
It was no accident Stack came down from the cliff when Carmelo was out of town. He didn't want to be in the room with him, didn't want to be photographed with him.
When someone asked Stack if he approved of his running mate Carmelo Garcia taping political figures and accusng the mayor of "ethnic cleansing" did he try to give him any political cover or DEFEND him? NO. He backed away and said "I don't know". Stack was asked if it's OK that tenants who oppose Vision 20/20 are threatened with eviction. Did he try to DEFEND Carmelo? Did he say it couldn't be true or that he didn't believe it? NO. He said "I don't know it to be a fact". Stack allowed that it could be a fact. That's huge.
Stack's backing off from Carmelo. Everybody is. It's the lawsuit. That was the last straw.
Everybody thinks its crazy, accusing the mayor of "ethnic cleansing". Nobody thinks it was a good idea. It's embarrassing to our people and Ruben is stuck with it. That suit was all Carmelo. Nobody told him to do it. He's always played the race card but taking it to court is a whole different game. It's hurting Ruben. People are leaving Ruben. Rudy Garcia left the campaign. Renee Abreau doesn't want the attention his name is out there and he doesn't like it. He's in with Carmelo on Vision 20/20, made some deal.
The Raia-Mason third ticket is going to happen. Timmy is at the top. Nobody thinks Ruben can pull it off.
