Each (transcript) day seems to bring with it a new victim, and today it's Frank.
HHA Director Carmelo Garcia, all wired-up at Jack Dempsey's restaurant on that fateful lunch of January 16, 2013 blasts Raia amidst fascinating remarks about "750" absentee ballots turned to soup in Hurricane Sandy. GA had posted that rumor on November 27, 2012:
GA has heard an unconfirmed rumor that an astronomical number of VBMs were thrown out- somewhere in the neighborhood of 600. (Were those the rumored soggy, barely-legible ballots that were warehoused at The Citadel? Double-votes? Under-aged dead people?)
Ha! The rumor was true.
Those long, sad faces on the Dark Side were mourning what could have been, but not for Sandy allegedly flooding the basement of 450 7th Street. The mass paper-drowning may also explain Finboy's unprovoked assault on Da Horsey on November 5, 2012 because those VBMs were supposed to spare him a loss-by-Nazi Truck and the disgrace of trashing Move Forward's campaign on a personal obsession.
Here is that excerpt from the transcript. Note the following stenographer errors: Olin = Oland, Liz Vasquez = Felice Vasquez, Rey = Raia.
Also note Garcia says: "I am against vote by mail..." (that's called 'telling it to the wire').
Oh, my! Frank told Dawn to "get rid of" Carmelo!
Alas Mr. Raia, Mayor Dawn can't do that, it's outside of her jurisdiction. The Hoboken mayor has no authority over that HUD position- neither hiring nor firing.
It's the HHA Board of Commissioners who are empowered to "get rid of" the Executive Director, and that appears to be what compelled Garcia to set up the lunch in the first place: to "call off the dogs".
Interesting, no? Don't you wonder what else is on that transcript?
