The right to criticize government anonymously hits Union City
Today we received an email (anonymously) from someone who asked if we would consider linking to their website unioncitycorruption.com. The website hasn’t been on the map too long and is using the American tradition of anonymous criticism of government, a benchmark of our democratic traditions.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation describes the historic right on its website:
One among other criticisms on the self-named corruption site is that Union City Mayor Brian Stack and its council receive free health benefits. The website also complains about the cost to taxpayers for a number of other activities including the infamous “Shame on You,” television segment where a city owned SUV was used to drive Stack’s former wife to a private day care job with her dogs.
For those who don’t remember, that investigation involved the use of a city vehicle by Brian Stack’s ex-wife Katia Stack who currently sits on the North Hudson Sewerage Authority.
Her term expired several years ago yet she still sits on the board with $5,000 annual stipend and taxpayer paid health benefits. Is there another connection to Union City behind this problem? (Well go to it guys.)

Talking Ed Note: If this information troubles anyone, give a call to Beth Mason. Without her underhanded political operations, from trying to bankrupt Hoboken, shutter the Hoboken University Medical Center to attacking online critics in a SLAPP, Da Horsey just might take an August siesta.
Nothing motivates more than Beth Mason’s corruption: moral, inept and of course heinous.
