Source: ‘Mason-Russo rift widens’ due to reckless release of police report

The fallout from The New Jersey Sting’s exposure of Councilman Mike Russo, less than a week old is being compounded by the antics of Beth Mason’s minions including the release of a police report on Hoboken411 – this according to a source on Grafix Avenger.


For the second time in a week, a source claiming inside knowledge on the thinking of the Russo family suggests there’s big tempers flaring with the release of the police report on the incident involving a city bus driver and Transportation Director Ian Sacs last week.  According to the source, the leak of the police report by source(s) within the department sympathetic to the Russo’s was not meant to be published.


The source, code named Deep Uvula remarked harshly on the utter vapidity of Beth Mason’s political operatives who will do almost anything to inflict even kamikaze gnat like attacks on Mayor Dawn Zimmer to impress their paymaster on Hudson Street.  Grafix Avenger conveyed the sentiment of the source on her website earlier today:

Everyone was told to lay low for, stay quiet until they (Russos) figure out their counter-offensive. Nobody’s been talking. Except Mason’s people.
There’s a lot of unhappiness with how (James) Barracato and (Lane) Bajardi have run away with the (Ian  Sacs) story. A lot. The police report was not for publication. You don’t expose the people who brought you Ian’s carcass on a silver platter. You protect the guy and his job.



Just yesterday MSV noted the work of a suspected Beth Mason’s political operative posting the Hoboken411 stamped version of the police report on NJ.com’s Hoboken Forum.  The police report’s appearance was not long after a phone interview with the Hoboken Police Department stating any request via official channels would not be met based on the updated policy set by Police Chief Falco.


Minutes later, the police report along with the NJ.com post disappeared.


Now not a day later, Grafix Avenger’s deep throat type character, as shadowy as the Watergate version blows the lid off a widening rift in the Mason-Russo camps.  The Russo family with close ties to the Hoboken Police Department does not appreciate how recklessly Beth Mason’s political operatives, as stated on GA – it’s James Barracato and Lane Bajardi – are exposing their source(s) at the Hoboken Police Department and risking their jobs.


Yesterday in a phone interview, Detective Anthony Falco addressed concern about the release of the police report and its appearance on Hoboken411.  He added the system was being checked “to see how it got out” indicating access to the report leaves indelible fingerprints by its users.  That access and the exposure to “risk friends” in the police department  for nothing more than a whim by Beth Mason’s political operatives infuriated the Russo family, according to the anonymous source.


According to a separate second hand report, Councilwoman Beth Mason has recently been seen on more than one occasion in public with Weehawken political operative James Barracato.  Among the known work Barracato has performed is the registration of the Councilwoman’s websites.  He was also spotted repeatedly at the Tim Occhipinti campaign office including the night of the midnight lair video.


The source continued to lash out at Councilwoman Beth Mason for not being competent beyond writing checks stating:


Beth is lazy, embarrassed them because of the police contract, she doesn’t read anything in advance and can’t run a meeting. She lets ‘people’ do everything for her.  Doesn’t want to work.  Gets mad at Russo for making her look incompetent at the meetings but she can’t get out of her own way.  


The anonymous source goes on to lampoon Beth Mason for “looking like a jackass,” in her manipulation of the speaker’s list with Lane Bajardi at an earlier City Council meeting.  That recent political operation was exposed by MSV and captured in this video:







Talking Ed Note:  All of this deep dish from Grafix Avenger’s anonymous source has left one horse turning green with envy.  If on the surface it appears mythical, a quick look on the local Hoboken websites (not including Mason411) shows an erie silence.


The wild desperate punches thrown in the last couple of days has all but stopped.  Seeing that and confirming information first hand appears to make Grafix Avenger’s source appear more not less credible and leaves Da Horsey feeling a bit green.


Yesterday sources stated to MSV the same Hoboken police report had been provided to their respective publications.  Neither media body has published or referenced the report to this point. (Correction) – The Hudson Reporter has in fact published the police report although MSV had checked earlier and didn’t see it.

Da Horsey – a bit green with envy
