Douchebag Attack on the Giattino Family


GA got this note today:
Last night, I spoke to (redacted) and she said that she saw (Mason operative) taking photos of Jen's house. Apparently, they are launching an attack on Jen claiming that she doesn't live in town.  Jen is living a couple of blocks away while her house has flood remediation, so I guess they are going the dbag route and say she lives out of town. Disgusting. 
Wow.  'd-bag' is right.

As you know, Jen Giattino is the 6th Ward Councilwoman-my ward.  She lives with her husband and 3 little boys in a 7th Street garden level home wrecked by Hurricane Sandy.  The damage to the Giattino family home was extensive and renovations are not complete. Until they can move back  (by Christmas), Giattino family is living 4 blocks away on 11th Street.

Terrible, no? 

Many families on GA's street were displaced for months.  Some, like the Giattinos, are still displaced.

Displacement has a  profound impact on small children who must process how a storm can take everything away so quickly, and Mom and Dad 'can't make it stop.'  Parents must make life as 'normal' as possible for their little ones, while they themselves deal with enormous personal and financial loss. Everyone in Hoboken knows someone impacted in this way, who like the Giattino family have endured a long nightmare and all they want is to restore normality to their children's lives.  And we, their neighbors, extend our hearts and hands to help these families, however we can;  families who have gone through tragedy and made it out the other side, like the Giattinos.  

Unless of course, you are a douchebag.


Here's how you know that you are a douchebag: you  attack the residency of the flooded out Giattino family to steal Jen Giattino's City Council seat with lies that she's "moved away".

If you participate in an effort to do such a thing, then you Sir/Madam are a douche (bag).

THAT is the plan being coordinated by Mason-Ramos political operatives.  Hence the Mason photographer lurking outside of Giattino's home last Saturday, furtively snapping shots most likely to appear on Hoboken411, and the Ramos ally appearing at the City Council to question Giattino publicly on her residency.  This is a political operation against Sandy victims, the Giattinos.

Call it Operation Douchebag

Democratic Committeeman Joe Branco rolled out Operation Douchebag  on October 16, 2013 with these comments:
As the 6th Ward 2nd district committee-person, I have been going door to door to my constituents getting people signed up for voter registration and asking any concerns and issues they might have. We talked about Sandy tonight and we know our 6th ward councilwoman's home is devastated due to Hurricane Sandy and a lot of people asked about you, hows everything going and I said I haven't heard any communication from our 6th Ward councilwoman.  A couple of people said that.. what are you looking like that for, I'm being honest with you... (exchange of words with Giattino, Branco looks down at his notes)  Okay, a couple of people asked me when you were returning to your building I said I had no idea when your apartment or your building would be finished .  They also said to me that you don't live in the 6th Ward anymore, you've moved to 11th and Grand. I says I don't know, I don't know where she's living at. Is that true?  Is that a true statement that you've moved out of the ward?
 Jeez, what kind of person launches a political attack on a flood victim and her family?

This kind: the kind that would deprive a 10 year-old child of a bed to sleep in:

 
What a douche.

Branco is a Ramos-guy.  

ANYONE considering voting for Ramos or Raia, know their operatives are behind Operation Douchebag.

Where will Operation Douchebag go next?

GA anticipates douchebaggery will surface on Hoboken411 using the photos of Giattino's home taken by the Mason operative followed by a Douchebag cameo appearance at  the next Council meeting.

Jen Giattino is well-loved in the 6th Ward. 6-2 Democratic Committeeman Joe Branco is not.  And he is not endearing himself to anyone by questioning a displaced family's residency for the sake of political opportunism.

Yuck.

  1. The floperative taking the pictures has to be that aging old bar maid hag, likely with the aid of her idiotic husband, that can never seem to get any Betty Boopless ELEC report right. IMO, they are the dregs of Hoboken politics and stooping to such a low and specious level is right up their alley. I hope that the two of them choke in the middle of 11th Street on their own vomit when they realize just how vile their actions are in trying to take advantage of a family's Sandy tragedy in this manner. They did not suffer any damage, so I guess they think their actions are just really neat politrickery. Think again, asshats. This really seals your political demise and relevancy. I hope that you are happy with the bed of derelicts, corruption fanatics and seedy leechaliccios with whom you have made a comfortable bed. Losers. Branco was a moron when he tired to bring the issue up at the CC meeting. For it to be followed up in this manner is hideously vile.

      What kind of people? People who are less people and are more scumbags. The kind of people who are such hypocrites what they rail about one year is good government the next.

      The kind of people who are bought and paid for by the Mason checkbook - hook,line and sinker.

      Then of course there's Joe Branco. He's in a league of his own. POS!

  3. If the walls of Room 84's back rooms could talk, they'd have a lot to tell Joe Branco's wife, that's all I'm gonna say.

  4. This is just classic Old Guard thug behavior. You state in public that you are devastated and want to help all those displaced by Hurricane Sandy, unless of course they are a political opponent. Then you use it to further your own agenda at the expense of anyone's livelihood.
    OR you state that you are an advocate for affordable housing residents, unless one opposes your grandiose cash grab, then you threaten her, violate her property rights and make her live in fear. Etc Etc. Come November, it will be yet another nail in the coffin for the OG.

  5. going after a flood victims city council seat because shes out of her home while its being fixed is a scumbag move. is anybody surprised that a guy who tried to steal a bed from a little girl would stoop so low?

    1. That truly shocked me- jumping in to outbid Theresa Minutillo on a child's bed she needed for an emergency. That is positively sociopathic behavior. No conscience or empathy for others- even for a child.

      I live in the 6th Ward and he's got a snowball's chance in Hell of being elected here. This behavior is an offense to all flood victims and all decent people of Hoboken. Disgusting.

  6. Come on boys and girls this Joe Branco do you really expect anything else from him ?

  7. So Joe must be equally concerned with Mike Russo and time spent in Belmar versus Hoboken.

    Or Beth and how much time she spends in some basement in weehawken filming Hoboken Today (can't wait to see an episode)

  8. Seriously, what kind of asinine question is that from Branco? Did you move out the 6th Ward? Well, yes, I was lucky enough to be able to stay in Hoboken with family while my apartment is repaired. What does Joe expect, that Jen keep her family in a non-functioning and dangerous apartment just so she can maintain "6th Ward resident" status. Eff You Joe.

  9. To quote Forest Gump (who is infinitely more intelligent than Tim, his Pr girlfriend and Bronco combined): stupid is as stupid does. This crew continues to do stupid thing after stupid thing, parading around like they are important people when they no nothing, and do less. Bronco ought to do the world a favor and take a vacation to some deserted island where nobody has to listen to anything he has to say

  10. Just when you think they can sink no lower, they continue to surprise you and sink a little bit lower. This might be one of their most disgusting attacks so far. EVERYONE who was impacted by Sandy should start ripping these disgusting jerks mercilessly.

  11. So now Ines K is doing Beth Mason's photography. I hear hubby John drove the getaway car. Someone's got a pic of them there. Hope you get it GA or Horsey.

    John and Ines didn't have their home destroyed in the hurricane so they can harrass a family who lost theirs. How effin' creepy. I hear Ines was lurking at the City Clerk's last week. Doing op research for Beth Mason. On Giattino. It looks like Jen's got a stalker.

    Nice people. Harrassing a woman whose house was wrecked in Sandy. Taking pics of an empty house. When it pops up on dirtbag411 youll know where it came from.

  12. The over-the-top attempt to try and tie Branco with Ramos is laughable - not even those guys like him.

    1. Branco is Carmelo's BFF. Carmelo and Ramos are 'together'. Branco is also pals with Mason's anchovy. And Mason's anchovy is on Team Ramos with a certain femme fatale- while he plays Mason.

      So yes, Branco is tied to Ramos. 'Liking' has nothing to do with this bunch.

      It's not about 'liking'. It's about money, development and controlling the City Council. 8 ZBA appointments, HHA appointments and the Council is the Citys Redevelopment Authority. You think any of these people give a shit about who they like?

    2. the problem is that Tim and his t-shirt side kick are treating this all like one big party -- and not Frank's usual summerfest. They are having a wonderful orgy at Raia's expense. Tim can't win now because his press is so laughable. Worse, his PR should just wear a billboard on her back saying she's doing tim and get it over with. Why be shy now. There's only two more weeks on the Raia dole, and then everybody goes on unemployment.

  15. The old guard politicos understand they face irrelevancy and in some cases extinction after
    in the very near future.

    That knowledge haunts them and spurs them into more and more desperate actions.

    If Mayor Zimmer is re-elected with Councilmen Bhalla, Mello and Jim Doyle there is little doubt that Carmelo Garcia will keep his position in Hoboken Housing Authority.

  16. Branco is a jerkwater shill, pure and simple, in my opinion he reads scripts now, and he will get his comeuppance, hope he proofs all those younger patrons coming in the door. In my opinion he has become a parasite looking for a municipal position, with some well funded friends looking way too happy at the dais at the meetiing. In my opinion he would give anything to have a board or council position, and in my opinion the community would be diminished if he ever got any position, considering his anger issues and waffling in his search for such a position. Exactly the person Hoboken doesn't need, and if that isn't enough, he rides herd over the younger age bars. What a formula for destroying Hoboken. Young political child, please go away.

  17. All of these people, Bronco, Tim, Tim's crew, Raia, Ruben, all think they are important and they are not. They want power but also show that they would abuse it if they got it, because they strutting around like political bosses when in most cases they are stupid, arrogant fools. Tim is Beth's puppet. And those around Tim feed off his stupidity, playing up to his ego, telling him he is powerful, while putting a knife in his back. Raia is willing to expend any amount of money to be taken serious. Nobody takes anybody on the Ramos side seriously because like Bronco, they are there for their own benefit

  20. I have to wonder if the Hoboken Moms understands what a back stabbing low life Ines is and how she is kicking Jen G when her family (including young kids) are having a rough time because of the damage to their home from Hurricane Sandy. Not so sure that the antics of Ines would be all that popular in that group.

    1. The Hoboken Moms are a pretty near-sighted bunch. If something doesn't affect them in a direct and obvious way, it's unimportant in their world. They get more worked up over a business that isn't child friendly than about Hoboken politics.

  21. Ines and John,

    This is a legitimate txt and not political operative stuff.There was a time when we considered you friends of ours. We had you and your children in our home. Others did too. Have you not noticed that the invitations stopped coming? You were once respected Reformers. What happened?

    Why would you align yourselves with BM? Is it money? If not, can you tell those if us that we're once your friends what it is about BM's politics that would make you want to align with her and turn your back on Reform?

    Be careful in who you target. Jen has many powerful folks behind her.

    One day BM will move on to other things and leave you behind. Then what will you have to show for your efforts but a long list of lost friends and enemies?

    Honestly, what are you thinking?

    1. I urge anyone on Hoboken Moms to let everyone know that Ines skulked around and took photos of Jen Giattino's empty house, and OPRAed all kinds of personal information about Jen's displacement and home construction. Her husband was with her on the photo shoot.

      This is the true face of Ines Keim. Absolutely despicable to attack a woman who had to leave her home because it was wrecked by a flood. Jen has 3 boys. They have suffered. Ines did not suffer. Inese did not have flood damage. So that is why she and her husband John are doing reconnaissance on poor Jen Giattino. They are heartless and cruel people.

      I want to know how much they got paid for it?

      Tell all the Moms on Hoboken Moms that Ines is part of the attack on Giattino, flood victim. I want to hear what Ines has to say. She is an absolute disgrace.

  22. This same tactic was used in a nasty east orange council race. http://www.nj.com/essex/index.ssf/2013/02/east_orange_councilwoman_displ.html my recollection was that it went to the courts. can't remember the outcome.

  23. Keim creeps. Hoboken doesn't want skulking lackeys, minions, and punks. How does it feel to be despised? Well, at least you have the pitiful little allowance Beth throws your way. Jerks.

  24. They call bloggers "bullies"?

    The BULLIES are Ines and John Keim, Branco , Masons crew, Carmelo and Rubens crew, all those ganging up on the displaced Giattino family. Shame on Ines and John Keim. Ines, member of Hoboken Moms Yahoo group trying to bully a flood victim, mom of 3 boys, out of her Council seat.

    BULLIES.
