Old Guard commenter on FBI investigation: ‘It’s hitting the Council’
Chestunut fillies are our favorite and the saying be what you would like to be with holds true in horsey land. Da Horsey however has been green with envy over that warbling fleshy Deep Uvula at Grafix Avenger for some time now.
We’ve tried to cultivate insight from our pals in the Old Guard lately on the FBI’s latest foray into town but none will talk and others who would be happy to return a phone call are less than available at least partly due to the holiday weekend. Perhaps they are scrambling to line up the best criminal lawyers their respective funds can retain.
One extremely reluctant Old Guard denizen did make second remarks of interest. Oddly, they’re none too fond of the Old Guard; it’s merely business. As we stated in an earlier story even with those sentiments, they let fly with a torrent of thinking but so reluctantly it was couched with, “We’re on lock down. Nobody can say anything at all.”
Our latest update comes courtesy of the same source who made the last insightful but reluctant comments and never wants to see it come back to them. It was heartwarming to those on the right side of the law in Hoboken political circles:
“A lot of people are going down…
I’m telling you, a lot of people are going down.”
The latest was even better or worse depending on which team you’re on. Still reluctant, still twitchy and nervous but the Old Guard source flat out stated who he believes looks to be in trouble with the FBI:
“A lot of people in trouble…
On the Council and not on the Council.”
Now if you are a ghostwriting minion for Beth Mason, it’s time to pick up the phone or text Hudson Street and ask if you can move the narrative forward. Then you can write about how the FBI is investigating Councilman Dave Mello’s expired car registration sticker and the lifetime sentence he’s facing in Rahway when the full truth comes out and the rest of the Reform council members begin flipping on each other about someone’s unpaid traffic ticket.
Or we can explore further what this may mean here safe from the Twilight Zone. So let’s do that.
While this source can’t be vetted and panic may in fact be part of what’s being voiced here; it’s still in line with what Deep Uvual had stated previously prior to the FBI sweep at week’s end and knocking on doors around town on Friday. So that’s credible enough for consideration.
Does it figure to prove out? Not sure, but the point is if it’s barely leaking out on the street then it must be a real concern among the Old Guard. What little there is doesn’t smell good. It smells like unadulterated fear.
As we await law enforcement doing the hard work grinding the truth out of electronic records and those who need to avoid facing prison bars for a long stretch, Hoboken will be waiting for the next shoe to drop. In the end, only the Feds know and at this point they may not have gotten further along enough to map out their actions. Their forensics people are no doubt very busy cataloguing their lengthy and growing findings.
At least one glass slipper may crack at the Wednesday City Council meeting. The Beth Russo resolution targeting the mayor’s staff emails along with The Hoboken Journal, Mile Square View and Grafix Avenger is slated to be back.
Think the FBI will be watching?
Talking Ed Note: Councilman Mike Russo was phoned for this article but did not call back before posting. One of the questions MSV had is what the status of the email resolution Wednesday will be. If he gets back, we’ll update this story for everyone.
