Election Day in Jersey City carries the specter of Mason, Beth Mason's family checkbook
|Hoboken's big neighbor of Jersey City is heading to the polls today. Da Horsey wishes them good luck especially the Grafix Avenger superhero counterpart Johnny Action Space Punk who runs the "Jersey City Desk."|
We know what am FBI informant tried to buy with Fed dollars, what's Beth Mason buying again?
Last week's breaking story on Grafix Avenger exposing $46,000 in Mason family largess to the Mayor Healy re-election campaign in neighboring Jersey City made the weekend paper. Or rather, Mason political operatives acknowledged the sordid tens of thousands in political donations and attempted to cover up the implication.
Mason's political operatives attempted to point the finger at the other guy saying he came up heavy in his request, about 10K. Well isn't that special (illuminating).
Even by admission of Mason's political operatives, their only salvation is Beth Mason is available to the highest designated bidder. Regarding the relationship going back a number of years with Jersey City Councilman Steve Fulop, the operatives for Beth Mason say it required a pick ax to his back because he requested 10K more than Healy.
Does anyone buy that?
While the unspecific admission of more than $40,000 to Healy's campaign appeared in the Hudson Reporter column, it failed to mention the exact figure and likelihood the Mason family will max out into 50K plus territory. With $46,000 already known, there's only $6,000 the Mason family can legally give before maxing out to the mayor's political committee team of ten at $2,600 per person.
Richard Mason is already listed as giving $23,000 and Beth Mason the same amount. Someone didn't figure out the basic numbers before the Hudson Reporter went to print with the Mason family excuse.
As one can expect when Street Money Mason bucks are counted, the Healy campaign will have pocketed the absolute maximum from Beth and Ricky Mason, how can they exceed it another $10,000 to anyone? For those in the know, don't count the Passaic congressional campaign littered in legal excess with Mason bucks.
There's whispers and none too quiet the Mason family has made more "generous" political donations to legal excess around New Jersey - Passaic and Bergen both figure prominently. Beth Mason is desperate to buy a political position out of Hoboken and according to another report, the HCDO is willing to do something for Beth Mason "next time," if she puts up the only asset she brings to the table: the family checkbook.
What is Beth Mason's money really buying? Worse, why is no one in the local media asking the question? It's one causing fear and trepidation from the former Hoboken Municipal Prosecutor Tracy Zur in Bergen County, to Passaic and NJ points beyond.
