GA has read Carmelo Garcia, Plaintiff vs Dawn Zimmer, et.al. and all I can say is... wow.
The complaint is a smorgasbord of fantastical lies, unverifiable claims, 'facts' unsupported by any evidence and garnished with libel so potent, it begs for a counter-suit. The whole document reads as though his lawyer, Louis Zayas, took dictation from the Plaintiff, favoring colloquial terms instead of the language a lawyer would use. For example, Zayas notes each Defendant is "white"- not "Caucasian".
And if you question the propriety of noting the race of Defendants in the complaint, don't bother.
The complaint swims fluidly between race and ethnicity, using whatever is convenient to inflame its race-baiting narrative.
The illogic starts when the complaint notes the mayor is "white" (race), her husband is "white" (race), the HHA Commissioner is "white" (race) but Carmelo Garcia is "Hispanic" (ethnicity). In fact, the 2010 U.S. Census considers over 90% of all Hispanic or Latino Americans "white", and would certainly define Garcia as "white" racially, and Hispanic ethnically.
The mayor has an ethnicity, so does her husband, so does the HHA Commissioner (GA's is Polish/Russian). Garcia's complaint skips over that detail to lump the Defendants together racially as "white" (a.k.a. whitey, honkys, The Man, blue-eyed devils, white devils, devils, crackers- or "crackerhead" as Jessica Coco, an ethnic Hispanic was recently called)... wink wink wink in what seems to be a calculated effort to throw gasoline on Hoboken's diverse ethnic and racial melting pot.
And as our community burns, perhaps we won't all be paying attention to that TRANSCRIPT.
Yep, GA believes this lawsuit is one big grenade thrown straight at City Hall to drag the Mayor and her husband into Court with sensational headlines about "ethnic cleansing" and distract from very embarrassing revelations in the transcript (Yes, I've read them). In my view, it also seeks to gain popular support for Vision 20/20 while advancing a myth that Carmelo's the HHA's Evita; standing up for poor residents being ousted by a trio of White Devils and ultimately creating an urgency to 'pacify' racial tensions by delivering Garcia's Vision 20/20.
That's my OPINION.
Take a look at this conspiratorial jambalaya:
|Nuttier than a Snickers bar|
Yes, Garcia will get sensational headlines, but not the ones he wants.
Craziest of all fictional claims is the one that Mayor Zimmer had her "own version of 20/20 Vision". Seeing is believing- have a look:
Ummm... what the hell is he talking about?
In Paragraph 7 (above) we're told the Mayor and her hubby's wicked machinations began "shortly after moving to Hoboken" (in 2002). In Paragraph 11 (above) we learn that Mayor Zimmer had a "Vision 20/20 project" to "force the relocation of a majority, if not all economically disadvantaged African Americans and Hispanics living in Hoboken".
(Oh yeah, Carmelo? Let's see you prove that in court. Where's the paper trail? Where's the plan? Where's the mayor's communications with HUD? Surely Patrick Ricciardi scooped up plenty of goodies from his email-stealing spree beginning in January 2010 through his suspension in May 2011).
In Paragraph 32 (above) we're told that the mayor sought to implement "her version" of the HHA's Vision 20/20" from May 2012 to the present. In Paragraph 58 we are told Garcia proposed "his "Vision 20/20"" to Mayor Zimmer's administration "In April 2013 and continuing to May 2013".
Huh? That's the narrative of this lawsuit?
According to Garcia's own TIMELINE, first Mayor Zimmer designed an EVIL "Vision 20/20" ready for implementation in May 2012. Later, in April 2013 Garcia proposed a GOOD "Vision 20/20" to the Zimmer Administration, to stop Zimmer's EVIL plan from implementation? (Excuse me, make that the TRINITY's EVIL plan: Zimmer's, hubby's and the HHA Commissioner's)
Huh? This lawsuit may be nuttier than a Planter's factory.
The Mayor's letter to Garcia of 5-1-13 eviscerates Garcia's complaint; guts it like a fish.
