The 2011 Hoboken School Board election was on April 27, 2011.
The winners were Carmelo Garcia, Frances Rhodes-Kearns and Peter Biancamano; all Kids First candidates lost.
After midnight on Friday, May 6 2011, police were dispatched to a barroom scuffle in Hoboken. One of those arrested: a recently-defeated Kids First School Board candidate.
At 4:41 PM on May 6, 2011 Hoboken411 emails Lane "not an operative" Bajardi, with an attachment. The email's subject line:"police report."
At 4:47 PM Lane Bajardi replies to Perry Klaussen: "Was this report obtained through official channels? Can I quote it verbatim?"
At 4:48 PM Hoboken411 replies to Lane Bajardi: "Yes...".
Since Hoboken411 obtained the report "through official channels" there is no need for GA to redact the source.

Immediately, Lane "not an operative" Bajardi begins scavenging for photos of the arrested Kids First candidate posed with Reform political figures.
At 5:01 PM, 5:04 PM and 5:17 PM Lane "Red Haven" Bajardi sends photos he calls a "gallery" to Hoboken411.com.
At 5:27PM on May 6, 2011, Lane "Red Haven" Bajardi emails Hoboken411, the subject is "Gallery."

At 6:53 PM on May 6, 2011 , Lane "Red Haven" Bajardi sends an email titled, "Godfrey Story" to Hoboken411 with attachment "Zimmer's School Board Choice Arrested.doc."
Curiously, Bajardi does not want the police report included though Hoboken411 confirmed it was obtained through "official channels."
(Note: In his "Zimmer's School Board Choice Arrested.doc," ghostwriter Lane Bajardi includes the names and alleged police records of persons who are not public figures, likely to be returned on Google searches by prospective employers. )
At 7:04 PM on May 6, 2011, Lane "not an operative" Bajardi's article: "Zimmer's School Board Choice Arrested.doc" is published on Hoboken411- less than 24 hours after the alleged incident occurred.
On May 7, 2011 Lane "not an operative" Bajardi provides the 7th and 8th comments below his own Hoboken411 ghostwritten smear article; Bajardi comments under admitted screen names "4th Ward Guardian" and "xyzpdq."
Did it ever strike you that Mr. Bajardi was on the wrong end of a defamation lawsuit?
For this entry in the 'anals' (misspelling intentional) of the Bajardi-Hoboken411.com excretions, we may thank a member of the Hoboken Police Department.
But please note, this individual was not the only HPD source of material for Hoboken411's attacks on members of Reform. The trafficking of police complaints to Hoboken411 is a long term problem, as well as their hostile behaviors toward Reform (you've heard GA's story). This abuse of authority, the politicization of the force and 'use' to advantage of one political faction over another, has tarnished the many good, honest and decent members of the HPD.
GA believes that Chief Ferrante is dedicated to fixing these problems. I'm told he's made great progress in the short time he's been chief. It is a matter of public interest and public concern to expose and address the misuse of the police force by one political faction. The broken relationship between the HPD and Hoboken residents who have been mistreated must be fixed. I am one.
