BREAKING ELECTION EXCLUSIVE
Latest assault on Councilwoman Jen Giattino's Facebook page plants phony racist ad against her and Councilman Cunningham
If Hoboken isn't ready for the Old Guard Russo faction Carmelo Ticket using the dirtiest tactics in this election, well sit down and brace yourself.
Councilwoman Jen Giattino saw her Facebook page assaulted today with a phony ad claiming both her campaign and Peter Cunningham's campaign were looking to hire "light skinned or causation" workers.
The earthy misuse of the word Caucasian parallels what Carmelo Garcia wrote in his "ethnic cleansing" lawsuit - "white" persons.
Councilmember Jen Giattino and Peter Cunningham are facing Russo faction Carmelo Ticket opponents in Carmelo Garcia and Eduardo Gonzalez respectively.
This latest dirty tricks assault may have come in retaliation for Mayor Zimmer putting out invitations of Election Day work to Stevens students for $15 an hour earlier this week.
The pay is 50% more than the $10 an hour offered by Carmelo Garcia.
This is the actual Facebook post put on Councilwoman Jen Giattino's Facebook page more than a dozen times consecutively earlier today.
Had enough Hoboken?

The Russo Faction Carmelo Ticket (sans Monarch Man)
Update: Same attack adding a little new insult at the end
calling Councilwoman Jen Giattino: "a racist bitch."
Both of the postings on Facebook are by users who live in Bayonne and apparently think it's a real ad.
The bowels of the Old Guard have been flung from the fourth ward right at Jen Giattino's home and so too, Councilman Peter Cunningham.
This is the contempt the Old Guard has for them and all of Hoboken, new, Old and in-between.
