Earwitness: Show us the Cash, Anthony!


Oh, dear!

Some folks over at the HHA are getting restless...

Here's what just came in from an Earwitness:
Many people still haven't been paid the $25 they were promised for wearing the Romano t-shirts Tuesday!!  Romano promised the HHA residents they'd get $25 for wearing a t-shirt.  They had to give their ballot # to be eligible.  They were supposed to get paid on Wednesday but Wednesday came and went. Then today at 12:30 PM but that came and went. Now I hear they'll be paying people tonight.
GA asked: did these folks wear their Romano t-shirts to the polls- to vote?
Yes!
Can you picture it?  Voters intercepted on their way to the polls, handed a t-shirt and an offer of $25... um, that's electioneering.

From the New Jersey Voter's Bill of Rights:
Electioneering —It is a crime under State law to electioneer within 100 feet of the outside entrance of the polling place upto and including the polling room. There can be no campaign signs or material in this area and no one cancampaign onbehalfof any candidate or public question. 
 Crime?  Nah, this is Hoboken.

  2. The ballot number requirement is crazy. You can't pay folks to vote and if you only pay if they vote, that is the same thing me thinks.

  4. It's almost as if there's vote buying going on, like people being paid to vote a particular way.

    Oh, wait a minute...
