|Vandalized Tiffanie Fisher window sign in 1018 Washington Street vestibule. Fisher's signs were ripped out with fragments of tape and paper left.|
The blowback from yesterday's post, "Biancamano ripping down opponent's window signs?" has been furious and revealing.
In short, GA recounted that on Saturday, September 19 Tiffanie Fisher's campaign had posted window signs in several Washington Street businesses. Her signs were torn down within hours. On Sunday September 20, Fisher, two little helpers and her campaign manager returned to hang new window signs where the old ones had been the torn-down 24 hours earlier. After hanging the signs, Ms.Fisher's group ran into her opponent Peter Biancamano on 10th Street. He was standing 2 doors down from where Fisher had re-hung one of her posters "10 minutes ago." After a brief, friendly chat with Biancamano, Fisher's group headed north on Washington, passing the storefront where they'd hung that sign "10 minutes ago"... it was GONE. So were almost all of the other signs the group had hung that Sunday... GONE, observed by the group as they walked north on Washington Street.
Those are the facts.
Now for the opinion, GA added:
But, c'mon. He was right there. And if Biancamano didn't do it himself, he saw who on his campaign was walking up and down Washington street ripping down Fisher's window signs.So what's the big deal? The Biancamano campaign can openly and honestly confront the irrefutable fact that Fisher campaign signs on Washington Street were vandalized two days in a row. The Biancamano campaign can openly and honestly disgree with anything I have written. The campaign can deny any involvement or (what they should have done) acknowlege the vandalism but say it was done "without consent of the campaign."
That's what an honest campaign would have done.
Here's what happened instead. And it is revealing about WHO is supporting Biancamano and WHY.
In the last 24 hours, GA's article and website have been vigorously attacked while Biancamano vigorously defended, in a blizzard of posts from out-of-town.
Yep, dozens of comments have come from out-of-towners in Hackensack, Secaucus and Scarborough, Ontario, trying to discredit the narrative and the messenger.
These out-of-towners who neither vote nor pay taxes in Hoboken are working their little hearts out to elect Peter Biancamano.
WHY ARE OUT-OF-TOWNERS MEDDLING IN HOBOKEN'S 2ND WARD RACE? WHO IS PAYING THEM?
My buddy in Hackensack might have tipped off what's behind the sound and the fury in this post:
GA welcomes honest disagreement and debate.
Skulking in on proxies and pretending to be "reformers" with a stake in the outcome of Hoboken's election is not honest.
So now that we know Biancamano is running a shadow campaign using out-of-town operatives to discredit reporting on dirty campaign tricks and "shoot the messenger," we are waiting to hear the "truth" the candidate claimed his campaign would tell.
