The Hoboken Sopranos meet the House of Cards

It's happening. After years, decades and generational Hoboken voting "tradition," the time is nigh for voter fraud in the Mile Square City.

Back in 2010, broke the big story elevating the issue of Hoboken voter fraud across the state. In subsequent years, more exclusive stories and revelatory analysis followed but the practice although feinting and weaving did not die but morphed before completing a full 360-degree circle.

As the Jersey Journal published yesterday on, the mechanism typically pays $50 for votes:
"Here’s how the scheme worked, according to prosecutors: operatives like Calicchio agreed to pay voters $50 if they applied for mail-in ballots and used them to vote as directed. The voters would receive the money after the election.
Prosecutors allege the 2013 operation was overseen by Raia, who has pleaded not guilty. Raia, a Democrat, was a council candidate in the city’s nonpartisan municipal race that year and supported a referendum that would have weakened rent-control laws. He and the referendum lost.
Roman Brice, who blogs at Mile Square View, posted a picture in 2013 of people lined up outside Raia’s social club the night after that year’s election. He quoted one woman who told him she had been paid to vote."
The FBI under the US Department of Justice in NJ has finally put a big dent in the arrogance of those surrounding Hoboken voter fraud. The Boys of Summer have spoken and accepted plea convictions.

The million dollar question is who Matt Calicchio, a long time political operative who worked on the payroll of former Councilwoman Beth Mason during the elections in question incriminate?

As exclusively written here in January, Councilman Michael Russo is at the 2015 Hoboken election epicenter. With the crumbs dropped yesterday, the Feds are holding back some cards before the trial of Frank "Pupie" Raia and Dio Braxton scheduled for next month.

Will they pile on springing more suspected informants at trial?

Already, people are jumping up and down wanting to be first and dead wrong on who the 2015 council candidate lying in trepidation is. The Ravi Bhalla insiders breathlessly wish Councilman Ruben Ramos is "Council candidate 1" while they hope their Ravi Bhalla ally, Councilman Michael Russo skates.

They are flat out wrong.

First, Frank "Pupie" Raia already had a horse he backed in the 2015 council race, same as the 2011 and 2010 races.

Ravicams in City Hall lead to illegal ejection of City Council President Jen Giattino & Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher?

Official release:

Joint statement by Council President Giattino and Councilwoman Fisher

Bhalla Administration Orders Removal of City Council President and Councilwoman from Hoboken City Hall

Hoboken, N.J. – Yesterday Hoboken City Council President Jen Giattino and Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher were at City Hall looking into a matter involving the potential eviction of a Hoboken resident from his home.  As they finished, the councilwomen were approached by City Hall security who said they were instructed by the administration to escort the two councilwomen out of the building because “they had no business in City Hall”.   

“It is alarming that the administration ordered our removal from City Hall while we were helping a Hoboken resident at risk of losing his home. As duly elected representatives and active members of the city’s government, we will continue to be a presence in City Hall and we will not tolerate nor be intimidated by this attempt to prevent us from doing the job we were elected to do – representing and advocating for the residents of Hoboken.  This level of bullying has no place in our city let alone from within City Hall and everyone should be concerned by this misuse of power exhibited by the mayor’s office.” 

Talking Ed Note: has more on this where City Council President and Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher were intercepted at the direction of the Bhalla Administration by a City Hall security detail.

The additional responses out of the mayor's office are especially vicious and pure fabrications:
