Yesterday on MSV:
2:35 PM - In response to this Grist for the Mill rumor piece, Perry Belfiore said he's not retained Jason Orlando as counsel and is "ruminating" over the question of a lawsuit.GA asks: "What's to ruminate?"
In my OPINION, Perry (who caressed GA's eggplant in ShopRite) is not being honest. GA believes that he already knows the answer to the "question of a lawsuit."
What he may be "ruminating" over is:
(1) Is there a pot of gold over the rainbow?
(2) Can I find a lawyer who'll take it?
If the answer is "YES" to the pot of gold, the answer to question (2) will be "YES."
If the answer is "NO" to the pot of gold, forget question (2).
What does Perry B. really think about his ejection from the council meeting?
On October 25, a letter written by Belfiore was published on Hoboken411 (article: "Shadowy Mayor.") Noteworthy is that Belfiore never claims his civil rights have been violated, nor his First Amendment rights. Instead, he poses a series of questions about the mayor, her husband, Council President Bhalla then "hopes" the "extent" of the "hold Grossbard exerts on Hoboken will come to light in the courts." In short, Belfiore complains his ousting was a 'cover-up' by the administration- not a violation of his civil rights.
Unlike Liebler who burst into court with a First Amendment complaint, the words "First Amendment" never appear in Belfiore's lengthy letter: [excerpts]:
“A funny thing happened at the October 20, 2015 City Council meeting, I was ejected. What had I done to cause such ignominy? Nothing but pose a hypothetical concerning the intrusion into the workings of an independent Board or Agency by a mayor, or more importantly, a mayor’s spouse? That was it, no names, no location just the question, what is the limit, a mayor’s spouse can inject themselves in the micromanagement of a Board or Agency.So that's what NJ courts are for: finding proof of "the extent of Grossbard's reach and power."
What is the secret that the Administration, as represented by the sycophantic Council President Bhalla is trying to preserve? That Stan Grossbard is the true power in the city of Hoboken? God, any dispassionate observer watching the Mayor’s schizophrenic behavior could discern that. What was lacking was the proof of the extent of Grossbard reach and power demonstrated by the 500 emails attached to the amended complaint.
Because of the production of the Grossbard emails – discovery has been extended and more people have been added. Hopefully, the truth on the extent of the hold Grossbard exerts on Hoboken will come to light in the courts, because it will never be disclosed by City Hall."
Let's ruminate over that.

Perry's last words to Council President Peter Cunningham before a pair of cops escort him offstage?
"I want him to admit he's a lying son of a bitch!"
