MIKE DEFUSCO CHARGED WITH MASSIVE WHEELING VIOLATIONS
Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher, the co-chair of the Jen Giattino campaign files complaint with Hoboken Corporation Counsel against Councilman Mike DeFusco alleging massive pay-to-play wheeling violations.
The Shiny Penny Mike DeFusco is shiny no more. The glimmer off the vestiges of Mike DeFusco running in 2015 on Mayor Zimmer’s ticket as part of reform is officially DOA.
(There’s no need to await a verdict on the upcoming Vote-by-Mail totals coming out of the Hoboken Housing Authority and senior buildings. That poop will be stinking up the place shortly.)
Is obliterating the Hoboken anti-wheeling ordinance, passed in 2011 as part of updating the City’s pay-to-play ordinance the new energy and new ideas DeFusco touts?
Nothing says the end of your waning reform cred like breaking Hoboken’s 2011 anti-wheeling. The ordinance was passed back in July 2011 after it had failed twice earlier when the council was controlled by Michael Russo and Beth Mason.
The anti-wheeling ordinance’s passage came on July 1st, 2011 after the swearing-in earlier that day of a new councilwoman. Her name is Jen Giattino, the fifth and critical vote that day and for many days thereafter.
DeFusco yesterday on Hudson County View issued a weak and very tepid denial, along the lines of “nu-uh.”
The DeFusco alleged violations total in the tens of thousands of dollars.
The release from Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher late yesterday uncorked on her former running mate in 2015.
