A Festivus miracle comes early to Hoboken

No one can quite explain it.  By some unknown unseen power, Occhipinti’s ‘campaign workers’ have almost all to a person found their way to cashing in for $40 each while each is equally fascinated with the paper voting option – vote by mail.   (Designated “captains” get $300 for rounding up those elusive vote by paper mailers, pardon, those pesky ‘workers.’)

Dozens and dozens of Tim’s Truth believers are scouring the fourth ward looking for a festivus poll.  Is that what they meant by poll?

David Cruz the wordsmith Tim Occhipinti has on the payroll to deal with such nefarious problems trotted out some large doses of less than properly distilled spirits to PolitickerNJ yesterday in an attempt to explain The Anomaly saying:

“We’re helping out people who need help and they’re helping out us.”


The “elitists” like to claim, “They’re poor people, they must be getting paid to vote.”


“They’re employment with us is not contingent on vote-by-mail.  It’s not a requirement of them.”

Meanwhile, Lenz campaign manager Sam Briggs extended another invitation to the Occhipinti campaign, although this one doesn’t appear to share the mutual enthusiasm of earlier.

“Mr. Occhipinti has previously requested Attorney General oversight as well, and we call on him to join with us in reiterating that request,” Briggs said.  “The Lenz campaign will cooperate fully with any investigation and hopes the Occhipinti campaign will do so as well.”

 David Cruz also said many ‘campaign workers’ have signed affidavits saying they are working in various ways, wearing t-shirts and “talking up the candidate.”  Does that sound like a job or a no-show vote it in job?

You don’t hear the Occhipinti campaign welcoming the Attorney General into Hoboken anymore now do you?

That’s your biggest indicator right there.

NJ State Attorney General Paula Dow – Tim Occhipinti’s people don’t
seem as enthusiastic now to have the AG investigate the election here.
Earlier they trumpeted so pointing a finger at “bounties.”

Talking Ed Note: MSV received the latest Occhipinti for Council press release yesterday but declines to publish it.  It was not provided to MSV from David Cruz nor have any since the release several weeks back describing “bounties” being placed on applicants of vote by mail.  That obvious fabrication stated in a letter to State Attorney General Paula Dow may land up coming back to haunt them.

The latest Occhipinti release is an attack on a local builder who put up a four story home on lower Park. Approvals were made unanimously at the Hoboken Zoning Board for its erection including a variance. It was opposed by a Hoboken resident who lives at the top of a five story unit two doors down.  The builder is supporting Mayor Zimmer and most recently Mike Lenz for council.  The attack in the Occhipinti release mirrors a hatchet job on this Hoboken resident by one of Tim Occhipinti’s campaign people, Lane Bajardi.

MSV will not air a regurgitated politically motivated hit job here from Hoboken411 and its little, angry minion.  It looks like a hail mary attempt to change the subject.

But the subject is only coming into focus.  More to come.
