Jersey Journal: Richard Mason of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and Beth Mason face millions in campaign fines
The Jersey Journal confirmed Richard Mason of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and his Hoboken politician wife Beth Mason are facing millions in fines due to their massive campaign violations.
As reported previously on PolitickerNJ, the Masons are facing millions in fines for their blatant and outrageous flouting of New Jersey campaign law in 2009 and 2011.
The Jersey Journal story also cited Beth Mason’s problems with street money where she distributed cash on the day of a Hoboken election. Mason brushed off the blatant law breaking calling it a clerical error.
A 2010 MSV story however showed that Mason claim to be false where checks were used to hand out cash to different people in different locations across Hoboken.

are facing millions in fines for their flagrant abuse of NJ Election laws. The felonies for handing out cash for votes
however is not included among the hundreds of violations.
The Jersey Journal story quoted the ELEC deputy director Joe Donohue saying:
But the ELEC violations, numbering in the hundreds by the Masons 2009 and 2011 campaigns have done that and worse.
In 2010, a MSV story detailed the flagrant and obvious use of cash by Beth Mason’s mayoral campaign where cash was flying all over the streets in her desperate attempt to
get buy votes.
Mason had tried to call the cash on the street, $15,000 on election day a “family” distribution via check. That too turned out to be a complete fabrication and was a flagrant violation of ELEC and criminal law for an election.
From MSV’s 2010 story when the Mason fabrication was first put forward:
The same “family” distributions of money being illegally distributed among different addresses is clearly determined by numerous other checks, all similar ELEC violations.
The very next entry, check no. 1071, two different people at two different addresses,
check no. 1072, four people at three different addresses, check no. 1073, three people at two different addresses. The whole report is littered with these “family” distributions.
|As illustrated above, are the Correa, Crandell and Hill’s all related and part of the same family? Julio Correa lives in 5G at 455 9th, while Jeanette Crandell lives in 4B of the same building.
These people are all “family” according to Beth Mason?
Here’s more Crandell’s, but they are paid on a different check. Ironically two here match the same 501 Marshall Drive address while another is at a different address. These “family” street money distributions sure are confusing.
|Here we have three different last names (sorry for the resolution) at yet more multiple addresses
scattered across town.
UPDATE: JANUARY 7, 2015
New Jersey’s campaign oversight agency has slammed Beth Mason and her husband, Richard Mason of Wachtell Lipton, Rosen & Katz with $44,000 in fines for their “transparent” election violations numbering in the hundreds.
