When kids are "political operatives"

Pincus' 6 year old was in this "sea of political operatives"

Here is another puzzler.  Why would one privately call the child of  a Defendant in a defamation lawsuit a "political operative" to the Plaintiff  who publicly demands $2,000,000 for being called a  "political operative?"


Plaintiffs are not "political operatives" but a Defendant's child is   Huh?

Tiny operative drinks Zimmer Kool-Aid?

"Liz M and her kids are operatives."  Not true.  Liz M's kids are paid operatives- they get an allowance.

Ka-ching.

In fact, in that "sea of political operatives" at least a dozen were paid- maybe 2 dozen!  Ask their parents.  Imagine if  Stojkovic's comments were posted online; at $2,000,000 per Kid-Plaintiff, she'd be shit-outta-luck. Ka ching.

Kidding aside, grown-ups calling kids "political operatives" publicly or privately may be uber-creepy,  shockingly-immature adult behavior and/or nasty, but as protected speech it's non-actionable. Creepy is not defamatory.  It's just creepy.  Sorry kids, mommy and daddy will not allow you to sue the (not)nice lady!  

However, the emails suggest a shared-pathology which, in my opinion, explains behaviors we've seen over the years: a Nazi truck, midnight flyers, detectives dispatched to a blogger's home to "investigate" a satirical blog-post.  In such political operations, the target's kids are collateral damage.

Of course, adults orchestrating such gratuitous nastiness understand this.  So why do it?

GA doesn't know the answer.   But in my opinion, these emails show how this political faction transfers their antipathy toward Zimmer-supporting adults onto the children of these adults.  Antipathy is not defamation.  But it is a matter of public interest and public concern when one political faction resorts to such 'scorched earth' tactics against another political faction. 

The reasonable basis for my opinion and belief is supported not just in the mountain of discovery emails, but in acts of gross misconduct during this litigation.  The following is one example. 

THIS PHOTO - of a private family birthday party was fished off Minutillo's Facebook page, given to the Bajardis process server- who was dispatched to serve Minutillo at a Wallace School PTO meeting

Former BoE Trustee, Theresa Minutillo, had been subpoenaed as a witness for deposition by Plaintiffs' attorney Jonathan Z. Cohen.    On February 25, 2014, Theresa Minutillo, wrote to Cohen and copied the Court, attorney Alex Booth, and myself.  Her letter begins:
"I write to you today in utter frustration at the level of harassment and intimidation that I am experiencing from you and your clients Lane Bajardi and Kim Cardinal Bajardi...

 ...On Feb. 11th I offered you two dates, with specific times that I could be available within your timeframe. We agreed upon a 10:30 am start time but you were unwilling to accommodate me in any way to commit to ending by 1:30 pm so that I can pick up my seven-year-old daughter from elementary school.

Ten days later, on Feb. 21st, I received another subpoena of which I was home to personally accept asking for additional information. It was during this face-to-face encounter with the process server that I reviewed approximately six photos of myself given to the process server so that he can identify me. In this package of photos is a photo of my daughter blowing out candles on her birthday cake surrounded by her father and I. This photo is a private photo taken from my personal face book account. For over six years I had been an elected official in town and there are literally dozens of public pictures available to you that you need not troll from my private photos of my family and me.

The process server also informed me that he was instructed to go that morning Feb. 21st, to my daughter’s elementary school to serve me during a parent open house. However, since you served me previously by taping a subpoena to my front door and by sending it USPS, I can only imagine that instructing the process server to serve me at my daughter’s elementary school was made in malice!! And apparently that is why the process server also had a picture of my daughter, to identify us at her school. This premeditated act was deliberately intended to intimidate, harass and embarrass both my daughter and I and it supports a pattern that exists of an extraordinary amount of mistreatment of a third party witness. This was no random act and it is despicable, vile and disgusting to subject my daughter and I to the atrocities of political payback."
I agree.

Fishing a photo of  a smiling little girl with her birthday cake at a family birthday party off  a personal Facebook page so a process server can identify the little girl when he serves a subpoena to her mother at the little girl's school... what kind of people do this?   What an absolutely reprehensible, disgusting act. 

Was the little girl present in that "sea of political operatives?"  

The depths to which one political faction will go in their war against another political faction has crossed so many lines of decency- including the SLAPP, is astonishing.

GA is thankful to report that behavior appears to be limited to an ever-shrinking, politically isolated group.

In fact, in 2013 it was my pleasure to serve as an Election Challenger at the same 4th Ward  polling place as the lovely Mrs. Ruben Ramos, who was with their two adorable children. GA had a little banter with the boy- what a cutie.

I would never call those kids- publicly or privately- "political operatives."   

Just kids, and proud of their father.

  4. So Lane and Crew collect photos of minors? Funny how they go nuts when someone mentions Mason's 18 year old plus daughter's in a TV ad, yet babies and kids photos are collected by adult men and women? Should we be calling "To Catch Predator?"
    Stalking Children photos is quite sick and bordering on stalking.

    1. I believe Facebook is public domain, so I don't think it is stealing but agree it is unseemly, creepy, weird and inappropriate, to download pics of minors without their parents' consent.

    2. The question is... if TM's profile's privacy settings limit her pics being seen by her "friends"... than one of her "friends" snagged the pic.

    3. Reality is most people don't even know how to adjust a setting on Facebook let alone change a setting on their pictures. The default setting is public.

  7. How many more photos of local children did they collect? I remember hearing Matt Calicchio harassed Ms Minutillo and her daughter in a pizza parlor. He's a bumbling fool, but Bajardi & Co, too? Their depravity knows no bounds. Hold your distance from this Sara person...wicked and unstable.

    4. 31,000 emails from one person over a two year period? That's like 42 emails every day on this one issue. Who has that kind of time? No wonder SS hasn't been seen on the street for years. Or the Bajardi's for that matter either.

  10. At what point does one consider themselves normal when they consider toddlers to be political operatives?

    What kind of sick minds stalk children on the internet, target them as foes and objectify them as operatives? Even worse, this lunatic then distributed the pictures of these children who she has seemingly identified as foes of her campaign.

    1. Bingo, Dang. Some people might imagine that perhaps Lane and especially Kim were so wound up in their sense of self-importance and "duty to the cause" that they were blinded to reality. All that was needed to lead them down the path was the persistent nudge in a particular direction by an outside force, someone who they viewed as a fellow comrade in arms. I'm not saying the Bajardis are an innocent "Hoboken couple", just wonder if there was more to this sorry tale.

    2. Hoboken is quickly learning to put faces to the names and getting to know more and more of who and what they represent. They will all continue to be under the microscope as time goes by the dots get connected.

      They have made themselves relevant at least thru the November elections.

  16. Drip drip drip. Every day, more truth -- in their own words, from their own emails -- comes out for the world to see. This has got to be killing them.

  17. So let me get this right. Calling Lane Bajardi and Kimberly Cardinal political operatives is some kind of $2,000,000 crime even with all this political stuff they did for Mason but they can call little children taking a campaign photo in a public park political operatives?

    These people are perfectly sane. Right.

  18. I find it refreshing to see children participating in local politics. I hope those kids grow up to be interested in what's going on and continue to be involved. That's the only way politics improves and politicians are kept in check. Shame on anyone for disparaging children who are excited and involved.

  19. If calling a political operative a "political operative " worth 2 million bucks, how much can these kids parents collect from the political operatives for calling these innocents "political operatives"? 40 million?
    Downright creepy people, and to think they have kids themselves

    1. You can check out Sara Stojokovic Facebook pages at least for now if you want she probably checked out yours.

    3. They apparently spent a great deal of time assembling enemy lists and looking for any information they could use against them. Searching Facebook pages as you can see were part of what they did and how they used what they found.

      Remember too that if you ever posted anything on Hoboken411 they know who you are .

  29. Based on their emails, we know for a fact the Sara and Kim read "the blogs" to monitor the Zimmerists, so they are undoubtedly reading these comments. C'mon, ladies, here's your chance to speak up and defend yourselves. While I doubt you have enough sense of shame to apologize, I'd like to know what you were thinking and how you justify your actions.
