Correcting the Cave: another fabrication against Jen Giattino

Next week is the last council meeting prior to the November 7th election. Some are not handling the concept of a free and fair election gracefully and over at the cave, it's an open market and free-wheeling plethora of personal attacks, defamation and lies.

As but another example, a reader sent over this curious fabrication from earlier this week against Jen Giattino. There's likely to be no retraction as the truth is the first victim there nowadays.

The head lunatic at Sybil's Cave claimed the other day Jen Giattino "lied" on a pulled resolution for the October 18th City Council meeting. According to the diatribe seen below, it was another opportunity to pump out more fabrications attacking City Council President Jen Giattino.

Lie piled upon lie from Sybil's Cave in another example of the unfortunate eagerness to attack Jen Giattino
with false allegations one after another. Notice the pattern coming from the Bhalla campaign?

The truth? An administration official wrote to the City Clerk's Office on October 16th writing, "The resolution to restore a safe climate (A4) was submitted by the administration prematurely so we would like to pull it."

The resolution will be on the agenda at the next City Council meeting next week. MSV understands City Council President Jen Giattino offered to sponsor it.

Talking Ed Note: With less than two weeks to go the ugliness in personal attacks against Jen Giattino and apparently anyone who publicly deviates from backing Ravi Bhalla in favor of Jen Giattino's mayoral bid is amping up or rather down into the gutter.

Will we see a retraction and apology for these latest unfortunate misstatements directed against Jen Giattino? Don't ask as you'll likely get a foaming cave dweller response along the lines of "go to hell."

"Loser" can no longer comment at MSV after multiple violations and three timeouts breaking the short simple rules. More recently, a charge was made of perjury against this editor by Loser resulting in a permanent ban. Send in the zombies but keep it clean. The simple short rules apply to everyone, even your friendly neighborhood zombie.

Dawn Zimmer launches personal attack on Jen Giattino

Letter from Mayor Zimmer desperately seeks to stop Ravi Bhalla's mayoral rival Jen Giattino

The Bhalla campaign's negative attacks against Jen Giattino's surging mayoral campaign has reached nuclear status.

Following the Ravi Bhalla hyper partisan attack mailer earlier this week, the latest in a series mailed to only registered Democrats in Hoboken's non-partisan election, a new front in the war against the popular City Council President opened yesterday.

Mayor Zimmer spearheaded this attack in a signed letter ripping her fifth vote ally on the council since 2011 stating repeatedly she is "not sure" she'll finish projects, starting with Rebuild by Design.

Think of the Zimmer letter as a new front in a disinformation war.: nuclear hyper partisanship from the Ravi Bhalla side and a chemical/biological attack on Giattino by Zimmer on the other.

Can a zombie apocalypse in Hoboken be far off in the distance now?

In the letter, Mayor Zimmer alleges Jen Giattino isn't on board with Rebuild by Design and impact to any climatic risk factors Hoboken faces. This clashes with reality where Giattino worked supporting Mayor Zimmer for years on the pending project.

Then there's the ironic and uncomfortable timing with the US Department of Housing & Urban Development's announced release of funds for the Rebuild by Design project. Both Dawn Zimmer and Jen Giattino made announcements saluting the landmark action only yesterday. Giattino publicly offered her personal congratulations to the mayor in noting her support.

After years of working together with others to bring Rebuild by Design to Hoboken, Mayor Zimmer has suddenly developed amnesia. She's suddenly so unsure about so much.

She's suffering form a bout of not being "sure" Jen Giattino will follow through on this project or most any other if you believe the contents of the letter. If only Dawn Zimmer could have found a way to be "sure" before she signed off on this Bhalla campaign letter to Hoboken residents.

Being so unsure and not sure what century it is, even using a telephone wouldn't come to mind.

Apparently, the only remedy to all this unsureness is to issue fabricated personal attacks against Jen Giattino on all of it beginning with the Rebuild by Design project.

Talking Ed Note: She's not sure?

Mayor Zimmer sure was sure about Jen Giattino when she saved her bacon becoming the fifth vote on a City Council reversing the nightmare of the Mike Russo - Beth Mason hydra. This eyewitness recalls the bear hug Dawn Zimmer gave Jen Giattino on election night. Sure was a lot of critical Jen Giattino votes saving the hospital, obtaining the SouthWest Park and keeping taxes stable.

Would it be too much trouble for the mayor to be sure about when Washington St. will see some work again? At the council meeting last week, the discussion about the lack of progress saw many of the council members showing more than a little frustration. They were told the construction efforts would resume "next week."

Has there been sight of a single construction worker so much as buying a cup of coffee on Washington St. since?

Maybe the mayor can finally be sure identifying an answer when she learned of the mounting millions in debt owed to Suez in the $8.35 liability (and counting)? Perhaps that may remain a permanent case of being unsure.

What we can be sure of is that the fusillade of hyper partisan attacks on Jen Giattino is continuing. The next friend to unleash on Giattino? Jim Doyle.

One can suspect the negative attacks against Jen Giattino won't be ending this week. To think all of these thousands and thousands of dollars being spent against a hapless inconsequential mayoral candidate less than two weeks before Election Day.

For those arriving late to the scene or smell of all this political desperation, MSV published the exclusive results of the Bhalla campaign poll the previous week. The poll showed Jen Giattino had surged into a statistical tie for first place.

Others have been selling you a bag of goods how Jen Giattino was no threat, a mayoral candidate of no import. Now why do you think you were fed all that propaganda?

No effort by the Bhalla campaign is being directed at the Romano and DeFusco campaigns whatsoever. There's whispers unconfirmed the Zimmer-Bhalla groupthink finds Romano an acceptable alternative to a Jen Giattino mayoral victory.

Well, at least they hold the same party affiliation in a non-partisan election. Say bye to Reform.

Related: The Bhalla campaign has released its latest ammunition fire against Jen Giattino. This one from Councilman Jim Doyle published on Hudson County View. From the same people who brought you the Bijou Behemoth at 7th and Jackson.
