A reader sent me the above Beth Mason Facebook post with the caption: "Huuuuuuuuuge Lie."
In her post, former Councilwoman Beth Mason alleges that Hillary Clinton's choice to head her General Election effort in New Jersey, Jennifer Holdsworth, was her re-election campaign manager in 2011! Funny, I don't remember that at all.
Is it true?
Would Mason lie like a rug about Jennifer Holdsworth managing her 2011 re-election campaign?
In 2015, Mason's 2011 campaign was slammed with historic ELEC fine for "election reporting violations."
If Holdsworth was "campaign manager", it is reasonable to question whether she was a Respondent in the complaint ELEC filed against Hoboken councilwoman Beth Mason and "members of her campaign."
Here is the ELEC report for the 2011 campaign Mason alleges was managed by Holdworth:
DOes Holdsworth appear on the 2011 Mason campaign's ELEC reports?

No. GA did not find the name "Jennifer Holdsworth" listed on any Mason 2011 ELEC.
And a keyword search of the 50,000+ Bajardi discovery email exhibits returned no results for"Jennifer Holdsworth."
What about social media?
GA searched Ms. Holdsworth's public Facebook page for the year 2011.
There is NOTHING posted showing that Ms. Holdsworth managed Mason's 2011 campaign, nor involved in any capacity; she attended law school that year.
Holdsworth made no posts on or about May 10, 2011, Election day except this one before:
In conclusion, GA has a reasonable basis to believe that Mason lied like a rug about Ms. Holdsworth, and Holdsworth was NOT her 2011 "re-election campaign manager."
Which begs the question...
Why would Beth Mason tar the reputation of Hillary Clinton's General Election Director in NJ, lying that she managed a campaign which received historic ELEC fines?
