Was something supposed to happen on Saturday? What about Groundhog Day?
In 2012, Punxsutawney Phil checked his shadow on February 2-- not May 12.
Hmmm, this is cryptic. Cardinal is asking "again... what happened" as thought she expected something to happen on that Saturday. The reason she is asking Mason "business partner" James Barracato is because she believes he knows why 'it' didn't "happen".
I can't imagine what was supposed to happen on Saturday, except that's the day most Hoboken residents receive their copy of The Hoboken Reporter.
Now we know!
Cardinal was talking about The Hoboken Reporter. More specifically, something that she expected to find in it- a story! Cardinal seems impatient, as if she wanted to see it published- my opinion, so don't sue me! According to Barracato: "they" (Dave Unger? Gene Richings? Steven LaMarca?) "said they are doing it."
But they didn't! Oh, no! What was this story Cardinal expected to see on May 12?
Based on the email, the story included a PHOTOSHOPPED .pdf of a page from this blog, which James Barracato gave to The Hoboken Reporter for a story about "pro Nazi-bloggers." Barracato created his PHOTOSHOPPED "GasChamberHeader.pdf" on May 2, 2012- ten days before Cardinal sent her "Groundhog" email.
GA knows this because the moron left electronic fin-prints on his .pdf- click image to enlarge.

How fascinating to discover Kim Cardinal knew about the story- a political smear on Hoboken Reform bloggers- expected to see it "on Saturday."
Alas, the Groundhog saw his shadow and went back in his burrow never to come out again!
These emails demonstrate political operative Barracato's collusion with a newspaper for a political smear, the press' initial cooperation with him in a coordinated effort to influence public opinion against bloggers allied with a different political faction in Hoboken. That one political faction can access the press to write stories favorable to one faction over another, is a matter of public interest and public concern.
So, when your "smear" story doesn't appear in the Saturday paper, what do operatives do?
In fact, Kim Cardinal Bajardi and political operative James Barracato talked a lot in the months before and after the July 26, 2012 filing of Bajardi v Pincus - but not at all in 2011.
What a coincidence! This email exchange occurred 75 days before Bajardi v Pincus was filed.
Below is a chart filed in my Motion for Summary Judgement (chart undisputed by Plaintiffs). The data was drawn from Plaintiffs Lane Bajardi and Kim Cardinal Bajardi's Verizon Wireless phone records returned in discovery. The chart is a breakdown of calls made to/from each Plaintiff and James Barracato, Beth Mason, Perry Klaussen and Tim Occhipinti.
To clarify, many other political figures in Hoboken were found on the Plaintiffs' wireless phone records, data which was analyzed and filed with court documents, not shown. Some of them noted in my Memorandum of Law Supporting Defendant Pincus' Motion for Summary Judgment:
Don't you wonder what the "talk" was about on May 12, 2012?
