Ravi Bhalla’s face punchers and calling councilwomen “bitches” who dare to ask a question

A litany of lies and savage cringe-worthy attacks are dropping like so much sludge below sea level in the overloaded Mile Square City sewer lines.

The Martin Luther King holiday weekend was selected for delivering more fanciful lies and outrageous hate. The reason? A question at the January 2nd City Council meeting followed by other council members’ questions at the next in what was dubbed PayrollGate.

Like the Jersey Journal and the Hudson County View, the news reported here highlighted the lack of an answer to a basic question raised prior to the January 2nd City Council meeting about increased salaries inside the mayor’s office. Read More...


Liars are gonna lie

The hysteria is reaching a feverish pitch along with a coterie of well-established fabricators, endlessly talking to themselves over and over and well, fabricating.

Anyone impressed with all that “anonymous” lying? Where’s the mayor’s office and the mayor providing documented proof contradicting what was said mere hours and days ago?

It’s clear that the exclusive about Payroll Gate has sent some rats scurrying over and into one another, lying with furious anger that comes with the limited exposure of the truth. Read More...


Criminal or Coverup, PayrollGate explodes!

In a stunning development, City Council President Jen Giattino learned her query on inflated payroll inside the Hoboken mayor’s office has led to the Bhalla Administration hiring a criminal defense attorney.

At the first council meeting on January 2nd, Giattino inquired about an odd increase in payroll out of the Hoboken mayor’s office.

Her query saw offered first incorrect information of “partial” salary adjustments among three mayoral aides and later, the discovery that four mayoral aides were on the payroll with two communication managers simultaneously. Read More...

    Nixing the truth

    The second meeting of the City Council is set for tonight and the biggest threat is to the truth.

    This isn’t about the recent propaganda with false if not defamatory fabrications claiming the good government councilwomen in Council President Jen Giattino and Second Ward Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher held a meeting with Academy Bus to look at and “push” their development plan. That’s a Shadowy fabrication touted in the usual dark, dank bowels from the usual political operative suspects, paid and unpaid. Let’s nix that fabrication so we can address a real, actual problem up for council consideration tonight. Call it =&0=& or nix the matter outright. A continuous political operation being run out of the mayor’s office is creating a snowstorm of problems, =&1=& Not a week ago,

    the odd political blast using the Hoboken notification system, Nixle, saw that release out of the mayor’s office to “inform” the Hoboken public about an imaginary threat Read More...


    The Grift is a grift

    With all the explosive corruption eruptions blowing up in 2019 in the Mile Square City, it’s easy to get lost in the pile of investigations.

    But let’s return back to one very real and the odd odor emanating out of the mayor’s office.

    Hoboken as the rest of this known universe is into the third week of January 2019 and there’s no public answer available out of the mayor’s office as to how many mayoral aides are on the taxpayer’s payroll?

    How many mayoral aides have been on the payroll into 2019? How many in December? Read More...


    FBI arrest threatens extinction level event for Hoboken voter fraud

    MILE SQUARE VIEW EXCLUSIVE The following report is a cumulation of MSV’s investigative efforts, analysis and opinion investigating Hoboken voter fraud, now into the tenth year. The opinions stated below are the sole responsibility and copyright of =&1=& =&2=& =&3=& The arrest Friday of William Rojas, 68 at Fox Hill Gardens, a senior building of the Hoboken Housing Authority sent shock waves across Hoboken. Following three arrests months earlier connected to the 2013 Hoboken mayoral election; this arrest paves the way for further law enforcement action connected to the 2015 Hoboken council elections.  That singular arrest signals an ongoing probe putting others in jeopardy where hundreds of paid “campaign workers” almost to a person similarly cast ballots using vote-by-mail ballots. While Rojas is an exception, almost all of those “campaign workers” were listed on the campaign reports of Michael Russo, the third ward councilman up for reelection this November.  The Department of Justice alleged Rojas was a campaign worker for a yet unnamed Hoboken campaign with payment for Vote-by-Mail ballots paid by check by an unnamed PAC. In 2015, Russo faced no opposition on the ballot in his ward council race but reported approximately 245 paid campaign workers, mostly for $50 each. (See graphic below.)
    2015 campaign records show Councilman Michael Russo as the inexplicable hub with hundreds of paid “campaign workers” in 2015 but only 20 of almost 245 among his reported listed “campaign workers” worked in his ward race.
    Almost to a person, each of those campaign workers would vote-by-mail in the 2015 Hoboken council elections.
    In 2015, Michael Russo spent approximately $15,000 for listed campaign workers, an amount he also declared loaning to his campaign for the same election. For an incumbent facing no opponent, Russo’s war chest was largely spent on hundreds of campaign workers outside his ward, mostly in the fourth ward (just under 150 campaign workers) and (68) in the fifth ward.  The fifth ward campaign workers all share another factor in common. =&4=&
