Beth Mason's meltdown may have captured the buzz, but GA noted something way more interesting at last Tuesday's City Council meeting.
If it's not clear by now that Carmelo Garcia uses HHA surrogates to deliver his message then take note. This week a new narrative was rolled out and stand back folks, this means war; war on Frank Raia, Tim Occhipinti and Raia's vote-farming operation he's run out of the HHA (allegedly) for years.
Yep, Carmelo's people delivered a big ole' "F*ck you" to Raia, in the form of a crackdown on his VBM harvest at the HHA. And make no mistake, this is Carmelo staking his claim to his turf for Ruben, to warn Raia and Timmy the HHA is now hostile territory.
Here's what caught GA's attention, from a grey-haired, bearded Carmelo-supporter:
"...to utilize an absentee ballot for it's own ill-gotten gains is horrendous."
But the shiv was stuck in and twisted by none other than Barbara Reyes. Reyes announced the HHA Tenants Association "has noticed there's a big issue that's gone on with absentee ballots" and they are going to "take on" the issue and go "door to door to educate our neighbors, our residents, our seniors if you want help with an absentee ballot that ballot has to be sealed"...
POW! Take that Farmer Frank!
And Reyes announced a rally at Mama Johnson Field this Saturday to educate tenants on how to fill an absentee ballot and on voter fraud; the "campaign to educate residents" will continue door-to-door.
It's no secret that Ramos is furious at Timmy, that if he ever believed he could take down Zimmer, Occhipinti ruined that.
Imagine losing to the City Council Dumb-inatrix.
Garcia is helping Ruben here, putting out the 'un-Welcome mat' to the man he called a "f*cking buffoon" in his secretly taped lunch conversation.
He also talked openly about the 750 illegal VBMs that Raia claims to have gotten 'flooded out' in the BoE race.
It seems his HHA Tenants Association and door-to-door campaign to "educate" voters on "how to fill out an absentee ballot" is designed to take a serious bite out of Frank's haul.
The WAR is ON.
Pass the popcorn!
