Grist for the Mill II: Raia-Mason shuttle to Hudson County Board of Elections?

A reported shuttle ferrying people to the Hudson County Board of Elections is underway making an unknown number of trips to the county office where votes can be cast in person.

Called by one first hand observer the "Mason Shuttle," there's concern yet another front in the voter fraud effort suspected with numerous alleged instances already retold by residents including one commenter on MSV just today.  (See Grist for the Mill below.)

Since there's no voter identification of any kind required when voting, no one can be sure who is exactly being sent out in the shuttle to the Hudson County Board of Elections to vote in the Hoboken election.

The major concern is that another front has been opened in an organized large scale voter fraud operation.  The "voters" appear to be congregating outside a candidate's office space on Jefferson Street.

MSV is working on this voter fraud story among others.  Is there a Department of Justice in da house?

The Nazi Truck seen above at the midway point of its five trips to Hoboken last November has been replaced with what
one observer believes is a "Beth Mason Shuttle."  This one is ferrying suspect voters to the Hudson County Board of Elections.

Grist for the Mill: Raia-Mason poll leak - Timmy Occhipinti is in last

The MSV exclusive report a two question automated poll went out asking who Hoboken voters would vote for mayor and between only two of the ten council candidates may have generated an interesting outcome.

While the poll is thought to have been funded by the Raia-Mason slate, the results leaked out from the campaign and found their way from a recent reliable source to Da Horsey.  According to the source who would only speak on background, any thought Timmy Occhipinti would be the next mayor is already a foregone conclusion.  The poll showed Occhipinti a distant third bringing up the rear to incumbent Mayor Dawn Zimmer and Assemblyman Ruben Ramos.

The numbers are nowhere near "striking distance" as was fed to the Hudson Reporter in a recent column however it should be given some pause.  MSV can confirm there are already a disproportionate amount of vote-by-mail ballots coming out of the Hoboken Housing Authority, where farming votes are paid for by residents who love to circle the block "campaigning" and "talking up the candidate," as the 2010 Occhipinti for Council campaign claimed.

No telephone poll is going to account for the amount of paid "campaigners" in the back of the fourth ward or certain affordable housing and senior buildings.  It does mean however, any vote-by-mail effort undertaken by the usual suspects will come up far short with what's needed to take the mayor's seat.

That may go for any council seat too.

Which means of course the face-off that matters most is next Tuesday.  Whoever can turn out the vote best will likely be the next mayor.
The council will likely fall into the hands of the same person leading the ticket.

Bringing up the rear.  The Raia-Mason slate is thought to have an anchor atop the ticket with Timmy Occhipinti
firmly entrenched in last place according to a source who had access to a recent poll.  Holy GuacaMoley!

Ruben Ramos campaign flunks out Mayor Zimmer

The Ruben Ramos for mayor campaign announces:

Ramos Campaign Surges Following Decisive Debate Victory
Zimmer Unable to Defend Failed Policies, Ethical Lapses

At last week's mayoral and council debates, my Vision for Hoboken team galvanized those in attendance by articulating clear and concise plans to restore competence and ethics to City Hall and to fix Hoboken's crumbling infrastructure, misplaced budgeting priorities, lack of parking, and failing high school.

Conversely, Team Zimmer struggled to defend its failed policies, out-of-control legal spending, violations of the state's ethics code and the city's pay-to-play ordinance, or how it intended to fix our schools.
I urge all of you to watch the debates on Cablevision Channel 78, the City's government access channel, where they are now playing, so you can see for yourself why our supporters are excited and the momentum is firmly behind the Vision for Hoboken team.

Rest assured, we will not rest on our laurels, or take your support for granted.  We will continue to bring our message directly to the voters by knocking on doors, greeting residents at the ferry, PATH and bus stops and inviting people to stop by ourheadquarters to ask questions and get involved in the campaign.

Thank you for your support.  Nine days to go!
