"Day-to-Day" Emails

Piano Man


Some of you might have heard about a kerfuffle on the Facebook page of the "Real Democrats for Hoboken" PAC Chairman, John Keim.

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."

On October 21, 2009, the satirist published a piece, "Who wants to be a Mayonnaire?" in The Hoboken Reporter, and sent the link to his newsletter subscribers, including Ines Garcia Keim. Garcia Keim forwarded the newsletter to Lane Bajardi, Kim Cardinal, and Sara Stojkovic.   The satirist was simply shooting comic arrows at Hoboken mayoral candidates, but the humor-challenged Mason cabal were not amused.

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."

Sound familiar?

  1. Best line of all the emails: Sara: " I dont want John there drinking more Champagne than the guests"
    Interesting, he wasn't considered a "guest" was he The Mason Family's house Piano man?
    His drunken psycho babble rants are legendary... ask the bouncers at Hudson Tavern and Maxwells.

    1. Some friends he has there huh? Mr Sara and the Twins really treat the Krime couple very badly in emails

    2. I caught that too. I wonder if he realizes that he and Ines are the negatively discussed subject of many of the emails between Lane & Sarah.

    1. First piss on them, then have them pay for your SLAPP-suit.
      Putting aside the latest dumb Krime Spree for a moment, who's the biggest suckers fo them all?

      Beth or Ricky?

  3. I thought Dean K moved to Weehawken. Not that it changes the story otherwise.

    1. You're the 2nd person who said that. When I met him in Hoboken in 2009, I thought he said he'd come in from JC. I'll tweak that.

  4. What I find most pathetic about this is the amount of time they spend trying to tie Dean to Dawn & get the mommy brigade on her. If they spent half as much time thinking of good governance initiatives for Beth to implement and then run on, she'd have been a winner many times over.

    It's like when a criminal mastermind gets caught and goes to jail: If they'd spent half the time they spent on illegal acts building up a company, they'd have been successful businessmen/women.

  5. The hostess wrestled a swag bag from Mason's aunt, then wouldn't let her leave until she paid for a cheese whiz hors d'oeuvres .

  6. Apparently to know Beth and Ricky was to despise them.

  7. Hey John Keim, don't poke the GA. There's still a flood of emails she's willing to share. LOL. We're lovin' it!

  8. Keim and his bullshit about "transcending the political season." He must know his "good friends" are appealing the SLAPP judgment and by doing so prolong the SLAPP season. The SLAPP season goes on and on.

    1. I wonder who is paying for that boondoggle. They get a different attorney to handle it? The last guy didn't fare too well per the judges ruling.

    2. I wouldn't be surprised to find out some Dick was funding it.

    3. I thought I read somewhere that they are now representing themselves. If so, that might mean that no lawyer believes they stand a chance in hell of winning. It might also mean that they're setting up grounds for "we cannot afford to pay, we can't even afford a lawyer to fight this". I don't know if that matters, I have heard that their wages can be garnished.

    4. Well, they were never able to get a NY/NJ lawyer to even start the SLAPP suit so now that it's a train wreck of backtracking I can't imagine someone jumping on this sinking ship without a huge check.

      But yeah I agree with your suspicions about potential excuses

    5. they cannot afford to pay argument does not fly unless they file for bankruptcy. I'd be demanding every financial document possible to find out what assets they have, who paid their attorneys and such if they did that. Follow the money!

  9. I want to hear why he and his idiot wife flooded the 6th Ward with stupid nasty direct mail attacking Giattino when they live in the 2nd.

  10. I wonder where Al got the idea that DeFusco is a sleeper agent for Ruben? Could it be everyone's favorite sleeper agent, that foot-in-every-camp PHONY we all know and love?

    Also, GA, somebody out there seems to have a bone to pick with you and Roman. Do you know who's got it in for you? Don't TellMeAboutIt -- just look into it and make sure you've got your bases covered for any PHONIES in your midst.

    1. yeah, noticed Don't TellMeAboutIt comments popping up on the HR around election time and now he's crying about some new nonsense. what a crybaby, a shame if it's a former reformer playing both sides. personally, i couldn't care less who it is, and kind of feel bad for him, actually. it must suck to have your new-found candidates get their collective asses handed to them.

    2. I want to say I am very angry wtih
      you for making me read the HR (looking for those comments). I feel dumber for having gone to the site.

      Delete
    3. Who gives a rat's ass what some idiot posted on the HR? Not me.

      I truly do not care, nor will I "look into it."

      The fact that you have posted the suggestion means you want me to read it. Moreover, you imply someone in particular is the culprit, so are trying to stir up trouble, the definition of a TROLL. Do we understand each other?
