A “major election violation” in Hoboken
Yesterday, MSV alluded to a “major election violation” at the polls.
Here is what occurred midday at 220 Adams Street in the 3-1. The following is a photo sent up to the Hudson County Board of Elections showing a Hoboken resident sitting at a table going through a book of voters who signed in to vote earlier that day.
The voters’ signed materials are being reviewed against a spreadsheet. The man in the photo is George DeStefano, the Hoboken CFO at City Hall.
Those poll worker materials are not allowed to be touched by anyone under NJ law but the certified municipal poll workers. Destefano was in the polling station going through the booklet of signed in voters. As seen in the photo, he has no credential to be in the room while sitting at the challengers table.

The Hudson Board of Elections sent a representative who arrived and demanded to know who was illegally accessing the voter data. He then went over to George DeStefano and asked him for his challenger credentials. DeStefano having none attempted to point to something on a pillar but was thrown off the premises. He would return later that day with approved credentials saying aloud, “Thanks for letting me update my list.”
The Hudson County Election official announced a warning to the entire polling station that no election materials of the voters be touched by anyone other than the poll workers and declared it “a major violation.” The same warning was issued across to the other side of the room for polling station 4-7.
Talking Ed Note: Anger at the Hudson County Board of Elections was registered by the illicit activity. Reportedly one person said if any similar violation as the one that took place by DeStefano occurred, he would be “locked up.”
The incident led to the eventual stalking of one Horse with a photo taken in the lobby strolling by and fed to Nancy Pincus for her false and defamatory hit job later the same day. Maybe she should change her name to Nancy Russo.
MSV would like to thank the Hoboken Police Officers who worked both in the 4-4 and the 3-1 polling stations. In particular, the two officers in the 3-1 were a great help during the vote and provided some light-hearted relief through the long end of day hours. To all the poll workers who put in such a hard effort through a long day and were so very kind to this farm animal, thank you.
Minutes after the election incident, Councilman Mike Russo appeared with coffee and sandwiches. He would later return with pizza. Thanks again Mike. It’s not personal, just election integrity business. Service.
