Tape-Gate Payback?


Why would the Ramos campaign make false accusations of pay-to-pay violations against the Zimmer campaign?

That's right, FALSE.

The Zimmer campaign DID NOT violate Pay-to-Play. 

Before HHA Comissioner Eduardo Gonzales' press release hit the media, Drew Moss, Zimmer's campaign Treasurer had already REFUNDED (2) checks of $150 each to the (2) donors who had exceeded  their not-to-exceed $300 contribution limit. 

And facing Gonzales' false accusation, yesterday the Zimmer campaign produced PROOF  to Hudson County TV- click here to view the video which shows a clip of the letter the campaign sent with the refund checks to both donors.  PROOF that the Zimmer campaign followed Pay-to-Play law.   Here is a screenshot of that clip:

While mud-slinging and false accusations are the norm in our politics, GA was wondering why Ramos would launch a media blitz over a piddly amount ($300) which would only attract scrutiny of his own ELEC, which is riddled with large out-of-town contributions.

Maybe Zimmer's campaign wasn't the only target, maybe the other was a donor.

GA got an email from someone who had seen the transcript- you know, the document that is "making the rounds", the one transcribed by the fellow who made secret recording. I'm calling 'Rat'.   
I told you I read the transcript. One of the people ******* taped was ****** and the other was Bernie Kenny.  So now you know why ****** sent Gonzales after him.  ******* is calling the shots not Ramos. 
Interesting!

So an HHA Commissioner targets a piddly contribution made by an alleged victim of the secret taping, made by Rat- whoever he is.

It sounds to ME like a little preemptive 'dirtying up' of a person who may not have appreciated being memorialized on tape by his wired friend.... and WHO KNOWS what's going on behind-the-scenes. 

If I were a high-powered, politically connected attorney- like Kenny, who got betrayed by a wired-friend, I'd probably have subpoenaed him by now, and be putting the screws to him in every way possible.  Behind-the-scenes.

In front of the scenes, HHA Commissioner Gonzales made a patently false accusation that the Zimmer has violated Pay-to-Play.

But it's the behind-the-scenes stuff that one imagines is much more interesting.
