Ravi Bhalla's online campaign launches more sexist attacks on Jen Giattino

Word on the street of a rumored poll says Councilman Ravi Bhalla's bid for mayor is flailing. Over at Sybil's Cave the foaming and frothing desperation is seeping in as they feel the surge of Jen Giattino's campaign on the streets of Hoboken.

The Cave is the online HQ for the Bhalla campaign where its inner circle spreads disinformation and heaps personal attacks on anyone who dares to publicly oppose Bhalla. They've resorted to all kinds of personal insults as they are apparently already in vengeance mode. Rumors of another recent poll out late yesterday suggests Ravi Bhalla's campaign is sinking, even with all the big bucks from outside Hoboken flooding in of approximately $400,000.

As seen earlier today at the uptown ferry, Ravi Bhalla doesn't have the mojo. Propped up by hundreds of thousands of dollars from special interests outside the Mile Square City and a lame duck mayor, Team Giattino led an army of volunteers greeting the travelers and received their energy of support.

Here's a flashback to earlier in Jen Giattino's career where she worked on the floor of the NY Stock Exchange. It's made the frothy foaming Ravi Robots super duper angry. They've resorted to sexist attacks, this time without using a horse as a bestiality prop as the resident loon did recently.

The scene from the exchange is a 2001 newspaper clipping which apparently sent Sybil's Cave into a foaming sexist rage. One commenter dared to raise opposition to the hysteria bubble calling the sexist attacks on Jen Giattino "offensive."

Did anyone on the Bhalla campaign disavow this ugly suggestion about Jen Giattino and a horse?

Is this the kind of disgusting sewer level mean-spiritedness you can expect more of from a Bhalla administration?

The caption "sexism" is added to this depiction of Jen Giattino who is seeking to date a horse according to the loon at Sybil's Cave who created it to serve at the altar of Bhalla fanaticism.
The gutter attacks there are a staple in service to Ravi Bhalla.

Team Romano retaliates against RaviPAC!

The PAC TV ads supporting Ravi Bhalla haven't gone unnoticed. Pleas that the Stronger Foundations PAC pushing Bhalla and connected to the transportation union Local 825 is a mere Festivus miracle aren't going over well with Team Romano.

The PAC cable TV ads show dollars cascading around Anthony "Stick" Romano led to a backlash.

That backlash came in the form of Team Romano releasing a little video of their own. The ad highlights the conflicts discussed about Ravi Bhalla and Suez water. Hoboken currently sits on a $8.35 million liability owed to Suez, its water vendor.

Bhalla is a law partner with Florio, Perucci. Both Suez and NJ Transit are clients of the law firm.

On twitter, the Team Romano video ends with #Hoboken is not for sale!
Talking Ed Note: Has anyone told Ravi Bhalla Hoboken is not for sale? Maybe he's awaiting someone to tell him?

Perhaps that message will come from Hoboken voters on Tuesday.

Ferry Wars!


A Ferry Election War breaks out uptown between the grass roots of the Reform Resistance vs. The Establishment & PAC power

Early this am, a skirmish is taking place between mayoral rivals Jen Giattino and Ravi Bhalla.

City Council President Jen Giattino is joined by council members Peter Cunningham and Tiffanie Fisher and a phalanx of volunteers bringing their formidable grass roots power into double digits.

Giant reformer, Kurt Gardiner is on the scene pitching in and sent some impromptu photos including this partial shot of Team Giattino with candidates Jason Ellis (city council) and Jen Giattino (mayor) and some of the volunteers on hand.

On the establishment power side, it's Mayor Zimmer with Ravi Bhalla, Councilman Jim Doyle and paid staff.

Kurt Gardiner describes the scene, "I am joined by Niall Murray Tiffanie Fisher Peter Cunningham Jason Ellis and others. The Mayor is here too with Ravi Bhalla and zero volunteers. Jen Giattino is the true grass roots candidate in this election."

Talking Ed Note: The establishment power may be outgunned at the ferry but the pro Ravi PAC continues its assault on the Hoboken airwaves bolstering what, another back room deal?

 The PAC, Stronger Foundations Inc. already seen early last month with five figure expenditures promoting Ravi Bhalla continues a massive spend. The PAC is managed by the the union Local 825 endorsed Ravi Bhalla last month and promotes NJ Transit and its proposed massive development in downtown Hoboken.

Expenditures since last Friday must be running in the tens of thousands to date. Those figures addd to the Bhalla campaign total over $400,000, most of it like the PAC coming from outside of Hoboken.

Jen Giattino's grass roots campaign has marshaled about $150,000, the vast majority, over 85%, coming from Hoboken residents.
