Deadspin picks up Manning story: “Shame on you” Timmy!
The hits just keep coming. While the NY Giants are off to the roughest start in years, the cheap political shot against NY Giants Quarterback Eli Manning by the Timmy Occhipinti campaign (known better by its underwriters Frank Raia and Beth Mason) is once again in the national headlines.
Coming off the coverage in the Huffington Post, the Jersey Journal yesterday highlighted the political gaffe but the smack down to Timmy Occhipinti isn’t over. Here’s the Deadspin headline:
The sports website slammed the Timmy Occhipinti campaign saying in part:
Well, the two time Super Bowl MVP and NFL champion certainly doesn’t need to hear much of anything from the unemployed occupant of the fourth ward council seat who is most famous for his 575 “campaign workers” generating a mere 1240 votes in the 2010 special election. That and being propped up by the tens of thousands of dollars as a second vote on the council for the Mason family.
Do we even need to bring up one of those “campaign workers” on the Occhipinti campaign not once but twice selling meth?! (See story above: Timmy’s meth lab campaign worker .)
The Timmy campaign’s atrocious letter attacking a national athlete who has seen great success while patting themselves on the back as self-declared “dedicated servants” to Hoboken is putting the national spotlight on our mile square. Again.
Was that a parody of good government with the joke on our City?
The Deadspin story ends with a short and sweet message to Timmy:
|Timmy Occhipinti and his campaign are once again making
national headlines for their “dumb” letter attacking Eli Manning.
Update: 5:40 And now enter the Washington Times. A commenter there wrote of the Raia-Mason One Hoboken (dummies) slate:
