|Beth and Ricky Mason show their anti-Giattino fliers to President Obama|
Were you wondering who was pumping cash into the shadowy "Real Democrats for Hoboken," to pay for those costly, full-color anti-Giattino fliers that blanketed Hoboken's 6th Ward?
GA's got the answer. Here is the PAC's 48-hour ELEC form certified by Treasurer Ines Garcia Keim:
|"Real Democrats for Hoboken" 48-HR ELEC report|
Beth and Ricky Mason, giving his-and-hers in-kind contributions ("direct mail") of $5,600 each for a grand total of $11,200.
The Masons are below their maximum allowable contribution of $7,200 each, or $14,400 total for this campaign.
Unfortunately for the "Real Democrats for Hoboken," STATE law limits their contribution to the 6th Ward race to $8,200; LOCAL law permits a maximum contribution of only $500.
Treasurer Ines Keim of "Real Democrats for Hoboken" appears to have violated ELEC law by exceeding the maximum allowable contribution by a PAC to an individual candidate.
Jeez, not more ELEC fines! I hope I'm wrong!
For those concerned that the "Paid for" on the "Real Dems" smear-mail listed a P.O. box instead of the PAC's registered Washington Street address, the PAC amended their address on a D-4 form filed on October 29, 2015.
Did you see what I saw? Is it a violation to lie to the Election Law Enforcement Committee?
Take a look.
"Real Democrats for Hoboken" paid for FOUR 6th Ward election mailers at the same time it took in $11,200 from the Masons and certified to the Election Law Enforcement Comission they expect to raise $1,400 and spend $1,300...
No wonder "Real Democrats for Hoboken" Chairman John Keim calls GA a "hate" blog.
GA hates corruption.
