Richard and Beth Mason watch: $46,000 contributions to Mayor Healy campaign
Da Horsey awoke to a report of massive (illicit?) monies from Beth Mason’s family to the re-election campaign of Jersey City Mayor Healy.

But is it legal?
Evening Update: There’s quite a buzz on this story and strong traffic so the political junkies are chowing down on this one and it’s not all coming from Hoboken. Finboy who directs Beth Mason which way to sneeze certainly has some questions his way on how this massive infusion to Mayor Healy occurred as connections to the Fulop campaign were burned to smoldering embers.
Beth Mason was seen going to her Mason Civic location at 5:30 for a meeting among political operatives and the big question is what was extracted from the Healy people for the tens of thousands given? Grafix Avenger has an update saying when the bad news came down that Carmelo Garcia of the HHA was given the nod by Union City Mayor Brian Stack for the ‘Hoboken’ Assembly seat, an incensed Beth Mason demanded all her contributions be returned by the Healy campaign.
A secondary source also says Mason was angered at the snub but Brian Stack never sat down with her, let alone gave her serious consideration, although the Hudson Reporter told anyone (via Mason operatives) who would read it she was a top candidate for more than a year.
Some deal was struck as the monies weren’t returned from Team Healy- they were increased.
How did all this go over in the Fulop camp a mere week before the polls open?
The word is Team Fulop was taken aback with an apparent Mason double cross.
