Kearny HudCo Rumble: 'It's pure insanity'

MILE SQUARE VIEW EXCLUSIVE

The assemblage of party insiders are arriving in Kearny for the Hudson County Democratic Chair vote and the scene is best described in G rated terms as a political circus.

An observer described it saying "it's pure insanity."

Union City Mayor Brian Stack has brought down dozens of his supporters with astroturf signs reading, "Brian Stack for Chairman" in English and Spanish.

Does he think this is a rally in Union City?

One observer asked if they had ever seen anything like this, Hudson County or not quipped, "No, Stack is just an asshole."

A tense Brian Stack surveys the scene in Kearny outside where the HCDO Dem chair vote is being held.

Attendees must walk through what is described by one on-looker as a "shit show."
