Earwitness News: Sacco Edition
GA's Earwitnesses runneth over- where to begin?
It starts with the Freeholder Anthony 'Stick' Romano hostage crisis- news first broken by MSV. In short, Romano, a born and raised Hobokenite, was ordered to "drop out" of the mayoral race or else lose his ballot position on the HCDO line- to Ruben Ramos!
Then, InsiderNJ's Max Pizarro followed with this: the hammer hitting Romano to drop out of Hoboken's mayoral race came straight from Nick Sacco's toolbox!
That's right, this big tool was swinging straight at Anthony 'Stick' Romano's kneecaps to "clear the way" for Councilman Mike DeFusco to beat Mayor Zimmer! (So far, Romano has not succumbed to Sacco's bullying tool)
Reportedly, Nick Sacco's tool took a big swing at Phil Murphy!
Yes, this tool ordered Murphy's campaign to cancel the candidate's special guest appearance at Dawn Zimmer's April 17, fundraiser! According to Pizzaro, the Murphy campaign was told: " the gubernatorial candidate should not align himself with Zimmer as long as Muniz wants DeFusco."
GA hadn't heard of (Joey) Muniz before the Pizarro article. The Grafix Avenger blog is Hoboken-centric. I love my city. So it matters to Hoboken residents like me who the f*ck has the audacity to stick his nose into Hoboken's mayoral election, and why.
Since GA published yesterdays post, Earwitness news has been pouring in. These (Q)Tips are notable:
"Stack doesn't appreciate Muniz moving into Hoboken."
"Murphy doesn't want to be in the same room as Muniz"
It appears that the attempt to manipulate Hoboken's election (or "move into Hoboken") has ruffled some pretty big feathers.
Finally, GA heard that Muniz is very close to NJ Assembly Speaker Vinnie Prieto.
Maybe Prieto can tell Hoboken residents why his pal is pushing Phil Murphy around, threatening Hoboken's Freeholder, and deciding who our next mayor should be.
