Mason Team Proposes Bhalla Makeover

Councilman Bhalla sans makeover
HOBOKEN-- Faced with mounting criticism for a series of venomous attacks- and now a lawsuit- all targeting Hoboken Councilman Ravinder Bhalla, a spokesman for Hoboken Councilwoman Beth Mason  has issued a proposal.  The Mason spokesman said, "It is really his fault... he's you know, exotic.  Got a thing on his head." 

Councilman Bhalla is a Sikh and wears a turban. 

Sikhism is the only religion in the world which requires its followers to tie a turban: the Sikh turban is an article of faith.  Sikhism is the fifth largest world religion, with an estimated 500,000 Sikhs living in America. As a result of September 11, Sikh Americans have become subject to discrimination, often from individuals who mistakenly believe that they are Arab or Muslim.

"That's why we bash him," Mason's spokesman admitted.

In early March, Councilwoman Beth Mason, who has a history of filing public records lawsuits, filed a lawsuit accusing the city of redacting too much information from invoices from Florio, Perrucci, Steinhardt & Fader, a law firm that hired Councilman-at-large Ravi Bhalla in August.  Many believe the timing of this lawsuit is meant to distract attention from Mason's historic Election Law Enforcement Commission complaints against her 2009 and 2011 campaigns.  Her husband, Richard G. Mason, a partner at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz was named in the two complaints.  Mason's total campaign ELEC violations are subject to penalties up to a stunning $14.3 million dollars. 

Reacting to critics who believe Councilwoman Mason has gone too far this time in targeting Bhalla's employer, her Team has issued a proposal to Bhalla if he wants the harassment to stop- a makeover.   

The Mason Team is proposing cosmetic alterations to Mr. Bhalla- hair, eyes, skin, and activities like...



Tennis at the Country Club...

Slaying forest animals with a rifle...

The Mason spokesman said if Bhalla was agreeable they would restrict their hit pieces in The Hoboken Reporter to 200 words or less and plant them below the fold on the cover (instead of above).

"We won't withdraw the lawsuit", said Mason's spokesman, "but we'll hold off on the other three we were planning against him."

Mr. Bhalla did not wish to comment. 


  1. You can bet the day Beth Mason's ELEC case goes before a judge there will be a "surprise" parade down Sinatra Dr. with a fireworks show and a free puppy giveaway to keep people from noticing.
