GA's not interested in the PAC Chairman's Facebook bloviations, but would like to correct the patently absurd statement he published: "you do realize that Kim and Lane's e-mails happened during the heat of a political campaign, not on a day to day basis."
Wrong. Here is the original discovery request for the emails [Kim's] :
"31. Provide hard copies and electronic copies of all emails for the last 7 years which you and your husband sent to or received from the following individuals on ALL computers you own or have access to outside of your home, including those you share with your husband or others: [22 individuals]"Plaintiffs turned over 7 years of emails: 2006-2013. Emails include communications during campaigns but the majority do not. Many are on a "day-to-day basis," for example, a series over several weeks were about planning a party:
Emails show also "Real Democrats for Hoboken" Treasurer Ines Garcia Keim regularly forwarding political satire written by her 'friend' in Weehawken, to members of the Mason cabal: Lane Bajardi, Kim Cardinal and Sara Stojkovic. Keim would call her satirist 'friend' endearments such as "insufferable" and an "ungrateful SOB."
Specifically, in the 1,549 word essay, these two sentences (48 words) caused a 'Masonista' meltdown of Chernobyl proportions:
"Maybe Beth is, as her daughters relentlessly and religiously remind hapless television viewers each quarter hour, “the coolest mom ever.” Then again, her kids don’t spend much time in Hoboken, having acquired their book learnin’ without once setting foot inside the hallowed walls of Hoboken’s varied educational institutions."Yes, the Mason First Amendment hit squad went ballistic.... call the HR editor! Call a press conference! Get the mommies to protest!
Folks, I kid you not.
These hyperventilating drama queens turned a piece of political satire into a dress rehearsal for the 2012 SLAPP suit: "Despicable! It's an attack on women! And children!"
This apoplexy over a piece of satire is really sick stuff. The satirist had nothing to do with any campaign. But the Mason vultures circled his essay, cried "battle," then discussed a battle plan for shutting the discourse down, and of course, "tying [the satirist] to the Zimmer camp."
