Tales from the Crypt: False attacks on council members leaked out of the mayor's office!

What does a Ravi Bhalla paid campaign political operative, one dead operative, slander and false leaks against multiple Hoboken council members all have in common?

Not a single council meeting in 2018 is underway and their all part of fur flying and mudslinging during last year's campaign. Tora! Tora! Tora! 

First, the mayor's office is allegedly leaking misinformation to Sybil's Cave where the mutt like yapping against good governance City Council members: Peter Cunningham, Tiffanie Fisher and Jen Giattino is a 24-7 affair. Six of the nine council members were falsely accused of not responding to email invitations to the mayoral and council inaugural held on Monday. Departing City Council President Jen Giattino who has scored high marks for two consecutive years of magnanimous leadership is deemed Beth Mason. Tsk, tsk Syb.

The leaks clearly originating out of the mayor's office with wild accusations quickly found their way online at the Cave apparently with nary minimal responsible verification with any of the six council members. Why it's another lame style Hoboken411 hit job, par for the course: reckless and irresponsible!

Can the political operations, propaganda and mudslinging cease and desist already?
How about taking a pause, coming up for air and get your crypt keeper at the Cave under control.
Not exactly the way to get 2018 off on the right foot.

MSV in hardly lifting a hoof learned several council members had responded almost immediately to the office of the mayor confirming attendance weeks ago. Those email response are available in writing. When one council member informed Mayor Bhalla's staff of this fact, he responded denying he was the source of the false allegations at the Cave. Et tu, Jason?

An alteration with no correction (or apology) appeared on the Cave not naming the injured party - you know because "she's" Beth Mason. It wasn't the last victimized council member contacting City Hall saying confirmation of attendance had been made mid-December and requested the mayor's attack mutt stop.

Following this cluster, less than 48 hours after the inauguration another screed from the cave dweller banshee urging all the good government council members be overthrown at the next council elections two years off.

Further wailing points to a dead political operative who may have worked with then Assemblyman Ramos almost a decade ago caught up in Operation Bid Rig III back in 2009. This apparently as part of some last minute desperation bid to stop the council vote electing Ramos council president tonight. Is this also part of the new administration's agenda?

The operative words here is not Bhalla paid political operative at The Cave but dead as in that Jersey City operative died almost a decade ago. The dead guy is not the only person being assailed, there's word of defamatory attacks on someone very much alive. At least one Hoboken resident is hearing of libelous attacks for daring to put in an application for a board position. They are not viewed as a friend of the new mayor and heard an earful of false and defamatory.

Tonight, the City Council will hold its first meeting of 2018. It looked rather sedate but apparently, all-out nuclear war may have been declared on most of the City Council members. Among the positions up for a possible vote tonight are City Council president, Zoning Board seats and the North Hudson Sewerage Authority. Contrary to more misinformation, Jim Doyle never sought, is not and never was a candidate for Hoboken council president. He may not be a candidate for reappointment by the council to the Planning Board either.

Not exactly the start you'd hope to see from the Bhalla Administration.

Talking Ed Note: This farm animal reached out to our four legged striped counterpart for comment at the mayor's office. Zebra! There's been no response but if comment is offered, it will be added.
