Russo Insider: ‘By hook or by crook, win at any cost’
Deep Uvula, the Russo insider bleeding its little wobbling guts to Grafix Avenger announced earlier today the gloves will be coming off now in the homestretch to the May 10th citywide Council elections.
The aim is to snatch victory from the jaws of corrupted defeat with lots of exciting election developments delivering generous servings of Old Guard smearing dirt, absentee ballots, and uncorking the wheeling monies of Beth Mason’s checkbooks worse than a drunk emptying his wallet in a casino. As Deep Uvula says with great appreciation, “God Bless Beth.”
Sort of a reverse morality run amok. But you knew that already, didn’t you? They believe they can even get Beth Mason past the finish line in a squeaker saying there are “enough of us” left in the second. The implication being there are enough people in Applied Housing in the second ward with votes available for the taking, or rather the buying. How many of those Applied Housing voters will be turned into magical Beth Mason campaign workers at $40-75 a pop will be an object of intense interest (and scrutiny). Hey, if Beth Mason was willing to donate a big wheeling chunk of change to get the council chair and see Tim Occhipinti buy off the 4th ward election, imagine what she’ll pay for herself.
Here’s Uvula’s deep dish on what they think of reform voters:
For certain, everyone of us will vote. You sure as shit can’t say that about “reformers”. If it is a nice day, they’ll be too busy playing Frisbee at Pier A with their dogs and if it is raining, they’ll stay in their cardboard condos with a mocha frappy something that they had effing delivered.
Da Horsey thinks he’s falling in love with an Uvula. For the complete dish on the never wrong Deep Uvula:
Talking Ed Note: This is interesting but not exactly shocking to hear that the Russo-Mason cabal will again embrace absentee ballots to change the possible negative tenor of the council races across the city. The King of Absentee ballots himself was overheard to say he was looking to generate a massive citywide paper ballot effort this time. He must be bored with the mechanics of the fourth ward plantation effort he’s cranked out on a regular basis on the BoE. His new BoE slate stands to benefit with more than 300 votes for the April 27th BoE election, although one of his first time candidates told an MSV source it won’t happen this time. Who is he deluding, we wonder?
Regardless, the BoE is just a dry run for what they are obviously planning May 10th.
Of interest here, it’s clear there is joy in the Russo camp that Beth Mason has sprayed her wheeling money sufficiently for them to snatch victory from Reform. Money is the mother’s milk of politics and Beth Mason is on the record in City Council stating she’s more than willing to aid the corrupt forces ensuring they have plenty of it. They are counting heads and feeling cocksure they are in position.
But elections are won and lost on the street, not online, not via checkbooks and not by unchallenged, unaccounted paper ballots. In short, we are now less than a month from a defining election for Hoboken and one side is not going to be happy with the results.
Hoboken’s very future is at stake here. Your voice, your energy is going to either make a difference on the streets or fall short. While the Old Guard can outspend Reform with Beth Mason’s wheeling and who knows what other money laundering techniques she’ll employ, getting people to the polls or if too busy actual, real legal voting by mail can play a big difference.
For the first time, my best friend who married a local Hoboken girl will be voting in the municipal election. He asked me who should be the guy? Should it be that Lincoln guy he asked? Now he has picked up a whole lot more about Mike Russo. Finally, he’s taking it seriously and is committed to doing his part. He’s been part of the vast majority of voters who just don’t pull the lever in local elections.
How many of your friends and neighbors fit that description?
The showdown is just about here. This is for all the marbles folks. It’s either back to progress moving Hoboken forward working with the mayor or back to looting the store.
There’s no middle ground here, it just doesn’t exist.
