On or before July 3, 2013, the date of the email below, Hoboken politico David Liebler "volunteered his time" to Carmelo Garcia for his "public relations campaign for Vision 2020."
One week later, on July 10, 2013, Liebler came to the Hoboken City Council meeting garbed in a Vision 20/20 t-shirt to "set the record straight" for Carmelo Garcia. The back of his t-shirt: "We Can We Will, Watch Us."
At the podium, Liebler did not identify himself as a "public relations campaign volunteer."
Instead, disingenuously represented himself as a "visitor to the HHA" where he "got this free t-shirt."
Does it matter whether Liebler has made other Hoboken City Council appearances as a "public relations campaign volunteer" for a special interest--without disclosing that to the public?
GA asks because Liebler is suing the City of Hoboken for "silencing his political speech" at the City Council podium on the night of October 21, 2015. Was it "political speech" or pre-election strategy coordinated with Carmelo Garcia, the Grossbard email leaker, to derail Reform's slate of candidates on the eve of the 2015 municipal elections?
GA thinks that's an avenue to explore during discovery.
Email communications, text messages, phone records; that's all fair game in discovery, to find out when or if Liebler ever "quit" using the City Council podium to advance the interests of Carmelo Garcia?
Bear in mind, Liebler's October 21, 2015 eruption happened because he was stopped from discussing Carmelo's Grossbard-email leak.
As a Hoboken taxpayer who will bear the cost of the City's defense, this ridiculous lawsuit is a matter of public interest and public concern.
In GA's opinion, the lawsuit is so disingenuous; it entirely omits Liebler's public persona as a Hoboken political activist, campaign volunteer, online commenter and political satirist/cartoonist.
GA predicts the defense will have a field day with these omissions during discovery.
