A Twilight Zone of 2007

It started out in Monmouth County last November when Andy Boy Lucas shocked da GOP’er establishment by becoming da first Monmouth County Freeloader candidate in over 20 years to lose an election.

And that may have been da lynchpin for things to come. Where's Rod Serling smoking a cigarette in the corner when you need him?

After da Lucas loss, daTruthSquad began blogging about a rift first uncovered by da TruthTellers between Lucas and then-Committeeman Joltin Joe Locricchio. Joltin Joe wanted to be mayor and run for higher office. Lucas it appears just wanted to win something.

DaTruthSquad got wind of a potential blockbuster backroom deal between Democrats and Lucas. Da deal, according to da TruthTellers had both Democrats, including da Queen voting for Lucas to make him mayor. In turn, a number of key appointments made by da GOP’er mayor would be handed to Democrats.

At Re-Org Day, da backroom plan apparently went like clockwork. Lucas, with 2 Democrat votes became Boy Mayor. In return, he spurned his former running mate Joltin Joe and sided with Michelle Roth as his deputy. Democrats took a majority of appointments, including da WMUA which just last year was raided by da FBI in Abate-Gate.

It was a “Gray” day indeed in Manalapan. An unknown named Carolina MachoGrande was named township attorney. She would later run for State Assembly, listing as her main accomplishments being a fundraiser for da Lucas Freeloader campaign.

Question, what is da definition of pay-to-play?

Joltin Joe decided to run for State Senate. However, with GOP’er leader Adam Pu-Pu at da helm and a new “vetting” process in place, both Joe and Little Anna were cut out of da party line, which was instead given to hand-picked candidates.

Soon after, daTruthSquad emerged with word of a potential conflict-of-interest with Pu-Pu’s job with da Feds. Pu-Pu would later leave his $92,000 a year + benefits Fed job.

In March, daTruthSquad marked da 1 year anniversary of da now-infamous “Because I Hate Italians” comment by da husband of Manalapan’s deputy mayor. Word first came to light from this blog. Despite denials it even happened, a Rosman mea-culpa, and da Snoozer editor writing daTruthSquad “tortures the language with the gusto of a psychopath pulling the wings off flies,” all da while newspapers, radio, and TV stations invaded Manalapan like locusts and finally a pseudo-apology emerged.

Meantime, in Manalapan a plan was being hatched. Contamination was found on da Dreyer Patch. Da land was purchased after years of haggling by Manalapan through a court order forcing da town to buy it. Da now-famous Mosked man, township attorney at da time brought in by Lucas and not liked by Roth “drew” up da agreement.

Drew “Da King” Shapiro, who decided not to run for reelection last year, as he said, to spend time with his family, apparently spent so much time with his family he not only decided to run for election, he sued to evict his 78-year old father and take over da family business. He also made headlines when a “King Investigation” uncovered da contamination at da Dreyer Patch and pinned da blame squarely on da Mosked man. It was decided by da Township Committee they would file a lawsuit to go after da Mosked man.

Enter da Manalapan Legal Dream Team, consisting of Township Attorney / Candidate for State Assembly Carolina MachoGrande and 3 lawyers from distant Union County. Da “land-deal-gone-bad” lawsuit was filed with 4 lawyers taking aim at da Mosked man.

During this time, Joltin Joe’s health became an issue and he resigned from da Manalapan Township Committee and from his indie State Senate run. He was replaced by Susan Cohen, a very likable person who had one minor character flaw to some – she was friends with da Mosked man.

At this time, da “land-deal-gone-bad” lawsuit took a very bizarre turn in da summer. Court papers stopped talking about real estate and began talking about what they believe was “Da Mosked man’s blog.” That blog, it turns out, as da Dream team believes for some strange reason, is this blog.

DaTruthSquad took a brief summer vacation, and decided to stay on vacation a little longer after receiving a subpoena from Google demanding a myriad of info on daTruthSquad. DaTruthSquad could not continue blogging until proper legalities and safeguards were put into place.

Of course, while daTruthSquad was getting a tan, da King was getting his hide tanned by da 78-year old man he tried to evict – his own father – and by da lawyer his father hired to protect him from his own son – da Mosked man!

Ironically, after headline coverage of da Shapiro vs Shapiro trial when things were good for da younger Shapiro, da Snoozepaper hasn’t reported on that one much lately.

In da fall, GOP’ers Mayor Andy Boy and Susan Cohen ran separate campaigns, yet managed to beat da parent-evicting King, who was also not faring well in his case against his dad & da Mosked man.

It was also at this same time Snoozepaper editor Mark Rosman wrote da now-famous "Rosman Editorial," maybe da best & only good piece of information given to us by da Snoozepaper all year! In it, Rosman questioned da case but also exposed da Manalapan Legal Dream Team and detailed how much they were being paid by da Manalapan Township Committee for their "services rendered."

It was during this time daTruthSquad must say that thoughts of leaving da blogisphere were dancing in daTruthSquad’s head. However, daTruthSquad’s Brooklyn roots took hold, and only a “BaconHead” would allow people who dared to do away with da First Amendment of da Constitution and dare stop daTruthSquad from telling daTruth.

DaTruthSquad, realizing this was a severe invasion of privacy and a First Amendment nightmare that could have horrific implications for First Amendment rights nationwide, turned to da Electronic Frontier Foundation, a legal organization specializing in First Amendment issues.

DaTruthSquad decided not to let a Dream Team nightmare win. On Friday, November 16, realizing wrong cannot defeat daTruth, daTruthSquad returned with a purpose and resolve like never before.

DaTruthSquad began discussing in detail Manalapan’s Trial of Da Century. Da Dream Team and da Manalapan Gang of Three (see no evil, hear no evil, and looking evil) didn’t realize it, but their attempts of keeping details of da case under wraps was about to take an eye-opening turn.

Soon after daTruthSquad’s re-emergence, info on da case traveled through cyberspace faster than da speed of light. Bloggers in Canada, across Europe, Japan, and throughout da USA were talking about da case where every legal brief and legal letter were available to be viewed on da EFF website.

Then da case became even more bizarre when Carolina MachoGrande, responsing to a question during a Town Hall meeting about da case began firing “Shock Quotes,” including her now-famous, "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

Da Newark Star Ledger chimed in with an amazing & scathing editorial about da local government of Manalapan running amok.

Da EFF gave every possible opportunity for da Manalapan Legal Dream Team to focus on da terra firma and not on da First Amendment. Their last reply, saying da EFF was making “time-wasting, unproductive, and unprofessional threats” is an absolute must-read on how YOUR TAX DOLLARS are being spent.

On December 21, da Dream Team met da Mosked Man and da EFF in Monmouth Superior Court. Read for yourself how YOUR TAX DOLLARS were spent.

As we close 2007 and enter 2008, Manalapan will usher in a new era with Mayor Michelle Roth ascending to da throne, as daTruthSquad has heard from multiple sources. Those sources confirm da deciding vote will be none other than Andy Boy. Remember da backroom deal?

DaTruth is, daTruthSquad, da Mosked Man, da First Amendment, and da people of Manalapan and da USA dodged a big bullet here. Da Dream Team actually made da attempt to circumvent da laws and da Constitution to out a blogger who didn’t goosestep to their benefactor’s marching orders. It would have been worse, since it would have even put commentors on web & blog sites at risk for da same Taxpayer-funded treatment. We all owe da EFF more than we know.

2008 should be a very interesting year. Mayor Roth running Manalapan? Da Monmouth GOP and a potential battle for leadership? “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man.” Trenton & Corzine? Da presidentiasl election? Maybe da “BaconHead” of Da Week makes a comeback?

One thing is for certain – thanks to da Dream Team, the daTruthSquad blog is now known worldwide with hundreds of page views every day. Thanks to da EFF, da First Amendment is a little safer “for all da people.”

And sorry Bozo Bean, but that “nice, steep cliff” you wouldn’t mind seeing daTruthSquad drive off will have to wait another day. Da Cadillac is a nice thought, but I’m partial to da Mercedes.

DaTruthSquad is back, and better than ever – and that is da truth of 2007.

Watching YOUR Taxpayer $$$$ - NOBODY!

First, daTruthSquad would like to congratulate da Queen who daTruthSquad hears will be voted mayor in Manalapan on January 2, and da recently-named-in-da-land-deal-lawsuit Andy Boy as Deputy Mayor – that is – if da backroom deal is still in effect.

Now, to YOUR money -

Recently someone left a comment on this blog, asking how was it possible the Manalapan Township Committee didn’t know what their own hired lawyers, da Manalapan Legal Dream Team, were doing and da role of Township attorney Carolina MachoGrande and if there was a “cover-up?”

DaTruthSquad embarked on an investigation, and while a “cover-up” is a broad statement, da question of “who is watching da store” kept on popping up, as well as da implications & ramifications of some individual’s actions.

What daTruthSquad’s investigation uncovered was a Township Attorney who is “not paid” to monitor the case da Township is bringing, a Township Committee that gets its info on the case “from newspapers and the Internet,” a lawyer hired by Manalapan Township’s government who “could not even tell him (the Judge) the names of all the people who are on the governing body,” despite da fact of the evidence of da Township Committee that voted specifically for him!

Here are da possible hypothetical scenarios…

Scenario 1: Da Manalapan Legal Dream Team never kept da Township Committee informed.

During daTruthSquad’s 3-month legal battle with Manalapan, daTruthSquad was constantly informed, almost on a daily basis of every iota of this case from legal correspondence between lawyers to briefs entered into court by Matthew Zimmerman, da attorney for da Electronic Frontier Foundation handling this case. I would theorize from daTruthSquad’s experience that an attorney, whether paid by da hour, contingency fee, or pro bono, should be keeping their client or clients informed.

This scenario was confirmed by Dream team attorney David Weeks in court on December 21. Da Snoozepaper writes, “Weeks, who is working on the case on a contingency basis, responded by telling the judge that he took on the case based on what he said were the merits of the initial malpractice claim. Weeks said he is not involved in any Manalapan politics and told the judge he could not even tell him the names of all the people who are on the governing body.”

He takes da case, works on it for 6 months, yet does not know da name of even 1 of da five people who voted to pursue da case and pay his bills?

A look back in time to May 23 shows da Snoozepaper reported that da Manalapan Township Committee specifically voted to have Weeks and his law firm involved in da case!

"A Township Committee resolution hiring Ruprecht, Hart, Weeks states that the firm was retained to represent Manalapan "... with respect to the client's claim for damages suffered as a result of professional negligence in connection with real estate purchases by the township in 2005."

Chris Christie, are you getting this?

Scenario 2: Da Manalapan Township Committee have no clue as to da events of a lawsuit that da mayor says is “costing in excess of $100,000."

In da case of “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man,” serious questions have emerged regarding da members of da Manalapan Township Committee being informed of da case they voted on.

Why did Mr. Anthony Gennaro claim on November 28 during a meeting that he had to get his information about this case from “newspapers and the internet?”

His response to a statement by Township Attorney Carolina MachoGrande clearly creates speculation that either all da members of da Manalapan Township Committee were being kept in da dark, or he was specifically not being given information about this case.

Either way, it gives a clear impression there was no internal discussions regarding this case taking place by all members of da Manalapan Township Committee, and since they signed off on all bills to da Dream Team and voted to pursue this lawsuit, one could potentially raise da “ethical” red flag, and if so, then who is responsible?

Scenario 3: Da Manalapan Township Attorney did not keep da politicians updated.

Evidence in her own words shows in da November 28 meeting, Township attorney and soon-to-be Assemblywoman Carolina MachoGrande’s Shock Quote #6, “You don’t pay me to monitor this case.” Here she clearly admits since she is not “paid” to monitor the case, which one can assume means it was not her job to inform da Township leaders of the direction of da case, which as we all know skewed violently from a land-deal-gone-bad to a landmark First Amendment case.

This scenario is likely, because in da same meeting, Township Committeeman Mr. Anthony Gennaro is quoted as saying, “I can’t contact Mr. Weeks (Manalapan Legal Dream Team member) because when I contact Mr. Weeks he wouldn’t take my phone call.”

Why would Mr. Gennaro have to contact da Dream Team’s Weeks if he was actually being informed? That begs da question, if it wasn’t da job of da township attorney to inform da township committee – then who’s job is it?

I’m sure a forensic accounting of MachoGrande’s legal bills to Manalapan would shed some light on this. If, as any good or ethical lawyer she itemizes her billing, it will be extremely easy to determine.

If, however, bills were for some reason not itemized, then this will raise even more questions that not only MachoGrande, but Mayor Andy Boy and soon-to-be Mayor Roth must answer.

Scenario 4: Legal bills were paid despite any knowledge of how da money was being spent.

This could be a potential landmine of trouble for da Township Committee, Township attorney, and township administrator.

Earlier this year, soon-to-be Mayor Queen Michelle told da Snoozepaper she believed something wasn’t kosher with da Manalapan Symphony and da Recreation Department, and called for a forensic accounting because, in her own Snoozepaper words, “it is our responsibility to make sure taxpayer dollars are prudently spent.”

And, as da story stated, it was Roth herself who asked for this. I’m wondering why she hasn’t demanded da same on how, according to Mayor Andy Boy, Manalapan has spent “in excess of $100,000” on “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man.”

Remember, according to da now-famous Rosman editorial, which was never disputed and so important it became legal evidence in da Township of Manalapan vs da Mosked Man, he claims there are 4 lawyers, of which 3 are paid by-da-hour.

Da big question – Is it possible that members of da Manalapan Township Committee has been voting to pay legal bills to da 4 members of da Manalapan Legal Dream team on a case they have not been following, or haven’t been kept informed about, or didn’t even know was becoming a landmark First Amendment case?

If you didn’t know – if da Manalapan Legal Dream Team doesn’t tell you – if they don’t return your phone calls – if you don’t know what your own lawyers are doing - why pay for it?

Scenario 5: This situation gets da serious attention of da NJ Bar Association, Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office or da office of da NJ Attorney Genera, and this makes da Frank Abate affair seem like a jaywalking ticket.

DaTruth is, something’s rotten in da state of Manalapan - and there are a lot more questions here than answers.

* Did da members of da Township Committee vote to pay legal bills with no knowledge as to how da case of da bills they were approving was progressing and no contact with da lead attorney?

* Why did da Manalapan Township attorney utter that now-infamous Shock Quote, “You don’t pay me to monitor this case?” If da township attorney was not monitoring da case, then who’s informing da elected leaders who voted to bring da lawsuit of it’s progress – as well as da bills?

* Who hired 3 of da 4 attorneys making up da Manalapan Legal Dream Team? Why does da lead attorney not know any of da 5 Committee people paying his bills? Who approved da Dream Team hiring and what they’ve been doing over da last 6 months? If none of da members of da Manalapan Township Committee did, then why are they voting to pay them?

* Why did Dream Team attorney David Weeks, according to da Snoozepaper, telling da judge "he is not involved in any Manalapan politics and told the judge he could not even tell him the names of all the people who are on the governing body," but back in May - as a front page story - it was confirmend da Manalapan Township Committee specifically voted to have Weeks & his firm handle da case?

* Will da thousands of dollars of bills for da Dream Team’s McCarthy be paid, despite being da one making this a landmark First Amendment issue that da town lost in court?

* Why was Committeeman Gennaro only informed about this case “in newspapers and on the internet” and not by his own township attorney? Why was da township committeeman forced to say da Dream Team lawyer “wouldn’t take my call.”

* Since it has been proven by statements made by both MachoGrande and Mr. Gennaro there was an obvious lack of communication between da Dream Team and township committee, who is responsible for that?

* If da township committee voted to approve billing for da Dream Team with no knowledge of how da money was being spent, why was Queen Michelle so adamant to ask for a forensic accounting, according to da Snoozepaper, of da symphony but says nothing about a case that Mayor Andy Boy told da Snoozepaper cost “in excess of $100,000?”

* What is da Manalapan Legal Dream Team’s next step in da case of Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man, now that da daTruthSquad subpoenas have been quashed?. Read Judge Flynn’s decision here

DaTruth is, there are serious questions as to what da Manalapan Township Committee did and didn’t know regarding a case they voted 6 months ago to begin against da Mosked man. Why did they allow it to become a landmark First Amendment case which brought worldwide shame and ridicule to da town? How could they not be informed of da legal ramifications? How could they not know what was going on? Why are legal bills being approved without question? Why won’t da Dream Team’s Weeks return da phone calls of Committeeman Gennaro?

These are all serious questions. Every one of them deserves an answer. DaTruthSquad challenges da news media to demand these answers and report them for people to see!

Unfortunately for soon-to-be Deputy Mayor Andy Boy, soon-to-be Queen Mayor Roth and da other members of da Township Committee, they need to be giving da people some real answers – and soon.

And that’s daTruth.

Da First Amendment is Safe - For Now!

As you have read on blogs worldwide and in da Asbury Park Press, da court case on Friday in Monmouth County Superior Court in NJ didn’t go very well for da Manalapan Legal Dream Team. Representing daTruthSquad, attorney Frank Corrado and Electronic Frontier Foundation attorney Matthew Zimmerman presented a case showing clearly one of da 2 subpoenas tossed daTruthSquad’s way was called a “bogus” subpoena, and da other was dead on arrival.

In da end, Judge Terence Flynn realized that this was a serious affront to da First Amendment of da Constitution and ordered da unenforcable subpoena and da other subpoena desired by da Manalapan Legal Dream Team to be quashed, giving da Electronic Frontier Foundation a victory on First Amendment grounds, and da Dream Team a black eye.

Judge Flynn made his point very clear in court, saying da demand of da Manalapan Legal Dream Team was “an unjust infringement on the blogger's First Amendment rights."

What da Dream Team wanted was information on daTruthSquad, because as they claimed, they believed da blogger was none other than Stuart Moskovitz, da defendant in da case of “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man.”

In court, Dream Teamer David Weeks told da court, "The fact of the matter is that you read that thing and you come to the conclusion that it's either Moskovitz or it's his alter ego," Weeks said in court. "When you read these blogs . . . da-Mosked Man is da hero of da blog and everybody else is da bad guys."

In addition, Dream Teamer Daniel McCarthy laced a legal brief with at least 18 references where he clearly claimed daTruthSquad was da Mosked Man.

Even through da Mosked man signed a legal paper saying he wasn’t daTruthSquad, da Manalapan Legal Dream Team, paid for with YOUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS pressed forward, deciding not to believe da Mosked man.

Enter da Electronic Frontier Foundation, and attorney Matthew Zimmerman.

"Bloggers, as well as everyone else, have a First Amendment right to speak anonymously," said EFF Staff Attorney Matt Zimmerman. "Litigants don't get a blank check to pry into the private lives of critics when they say things the litigants don't like. The fact that it is the government trying to abuse the discovery process makes this attempted invasion of privacy all the more repugnant."

Mr. Zimmerman tried on several occasions to save da court time and da people of Manalapan money by explaining exactly what da First Amendment was all about, letting them know their original subpoena was against da law and displaying previous legal verdicts - including Federal law & a major NJ legal case - all in vain as da Manalapan Legal Dream team would hear none of it.

Apparently, da Manalapan Legal Dream Team and da Township Committee's Gang of Three (hear no evil, see no evil, and looking evil) underestimated cyberspace. This story, conveniently withheld from da taxpayers of Manalapan by a local Snoozepaper was instead picked up by bloggers in North America, Europe, and Asia, and read by readers in all parts of da world.

Da Star Ledger of Newark chimed in, writing a scathing editorial of a town and it's politicians running amok.

"Town leaders should take a refresher course in the First Amendment as well as the state constitution. Bloggers, like leafle teers, have a right to anonymity. As the U.S. Supreme Court noted 10 years ago, the fact that the kvetching is being done on line doesn't change that basic rule."

This story of a town’s political leaders threatening to remove da First Amendment from da lexicon of our landscape also gave us da quote of da year!

"Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

That quote was not said by some drunken spectator. That quote came from Manalapan Township attorney Carolina MachoGrande, also known as State Assemblywoman-elect Carolina MachoGrande! Yes, the person who is “fairly certain what da Founding Fathers meant” will be making laws in Trenton for all NJ residents!

Just when you thought New Jersey couldn’t get any worse…

In da end, you da readers and da TruthTellers saw through what da Manalapan Legal Dream team was trying to do.

Question is, what if da Electronic Frontier Foundation didn’t get involved?

Imagine if you will their case just for bringing da subpoena to Google regarding daTruthSquad. They had absolutely no concrete evidence that da Mosked man was da blogger. They just thought it was.

Are you kidding? Benson & Stabler on Law & Order SVU couldn’t get a search warrant with that flimsy evidence, and they’re television characters!

This means if they were successful, then anytime a person, including anonymous writers wrote or said something that some politician – any politician didn’t like, they could use YOUR TAXPAYER MONEY to go to court and get your name and any other info they wanted.

If you thought George Orwell’s 1984 or living in North Korea was bad…

Right down da road from Manalapan Town Hall is Monmouth Battlefield, where over 300 brave souls gave their lives in defense of liberty against tyranny. Anonymous writers, or “anonymous bomb throwers” as soon-to-be-State Assemblywoman MachoGrande calls them wrote da Federalist Papers, an outline of da Constitution which allowed that great document to be ratified, which included da First Amendment to da Constitution – Freedom of Speech.

Can you even imagine being persecuted in this great nation because some politician didn’t like what you were saying?

During da recent New Jersey legislative election, da Republican MachoGrande and her running mates didn’t have very nice things to say about the incumbent elected representatives. I wonder how she would have felt if da former elected official sued her, or handed out subpoenas like candy to her or her anonymous political writers whether they were telling datruth or not?

That could have been da future if da Manalapan Legal Dream Team had its way, and there wasn’t an Electronic Frontier Foundation to stop them.

DaTruth is, your right of Free Speech was upheld by Judge Flynn, Matthew Zimmerman, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Frank Corrado. They all deserve your praise, because each realized da First Amendment implications that da Manalapan Legal Dream Team were trying to do away with, all because of their “hunch” about da identity of daTruthSquad.

Judge Flynn made very clear that this was a First Amendment decision, and went as far as to grant the protection order. Judge Flynn used da rule of law, not "hunches" that suit da manalapan Legal Dream team.

"We're grateful that Judge Flynn upheld the First Amendment rights of our client and recognized that anonymous speakers should not be intimidated into silence through the discovery process," said EFF Staff Attorney Matt Zimmerman. "Now 'daTruthSquad' can continue to discuss township business without fear of government reprisal."

DaTruth is, we all came very close to da erosion of da First Amendment of our Constitution, all because da members of da Manalapan Legal Dream Team had a “hunch.”

Or was it a hidden agenda?

Now that Judge Flynn reminded us all you cannot take away anyone’s First Amendment rights, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s a “hunch,’ or a little birdie tells your or the answer came to you on a Oijia board. You need evidence, and that’s something that it appears da Manalapan Legal Dream Team is lacking.

Finally, one last thing about “anonymous bomb throwers.”

"Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

Soon-to-be State Assemblywoman Carolina MachoGrande made that now-famous Shock Quote at a November 28 Manalapan Township Committee meeting. It is not in dispute what she said, because it’s on tape and da evidence is now in da possession of daTruthSquad.

DaTruthSquad does not want or need an apology from MachoGrande for such a rediculous comment. However, da apology from MachoGrande should be made.

Those deserving it are Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Chief Justice John Jay, and James Madison. DaTruthSquad will not speak for these great Patriots, but I personally do not believe they were “anonymous bomb throwers.” We owe da Constitution and da First Amendment to these great men.

Da people of da 12th Legislative District of New Jersey deserve an apology, as do da people of Manalapan.

Mrs. MachoGrande, do da right thing. DaTruthSquad and da TruthTellers will be watching.

Da Manalapan Legal Dream Team lost this epic battle that placed little Manalapan Township in da focus of world opinion. Da Manalapan Legal Dream Team also lost their chance to take da First Amendment away from all of us. It was a close call – but it was also a very important wakeup call.

Thanks to da Electronic Frontier Foundation and attorney Frank Corrado, and a little courage, da First Amendment of da Constitution is alive and well and allowed to live in Manalapan, and all da Manalapans of our great nation.

And that’s daTruth.

Da Score:

DaTruthSquad and da Electronic Frontier Foundation: 1
Da Manalapan Legal Dream Team & Ego-Bruised Politicians: Zero

No need to wait for the next edition by Back Page Barratta. Here's da Monmouth Superior Court ruling direct from da judges's desk for all to read!

Da First Amendment is alive and well, thanks to Monmouth County, NJ Superior Court Judge Terence Flynn who saw through da agenda of da Manalapan Dream Team.

In a case that has gained worldwide attention, da Manalapan Legal Dream Team, led by NJ attorneys David Weeks and Daniel McCarthy suffered a devastating loss while the Consitution of the USA was victorious.

In what can only be described as a victory for the First Amendment, the judge in the case threw out both subpoenas from Weeks which demanded broad-ranging information on the identity of daTruthSquad.

Let daTruthSquad make this point perfectly clear to everyone. This is not a victory for just daTruthSquad. It is a victory for all bloggers in the United States and any citizen who has a comment to make that any ego-bruised politician may not like. This is a victory for the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, and it should show all weak-minded politicians you cannot mess with the Founding Fathers of this great nation.

Even more important, da judge ruled this case on First Amendment grounds.

Here are quotes for da media:

"Recently, State Assemblywoman-elect Caroline Casagrande said, ‘Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted." This isn't just a victory for daTruthSquad. This is a victory for 'anonymous bomb-throwers' like Alexander Hamilton, Chief Justice John Jay, and anyone who believes in the sacrifices of the Founding Fathers and the First Amendment of the US Constitution.’"

"DaTruthSquad was never a victim here. The victims here are the people of Manalapan, NJ who have no say in the funding of a costly fishing expedition whose sole purpose seems to have been the eroding of Freedom of Speech."

"Was the Manalapan Township Committee asleep at the wheel? The judge asked in court if the plaintiff's clients knew about how their lawyers were handling this case. Did these politicians sanction a First Amendment witchhunt? The people who are paying for this lawsuit - that's the people of Manalapan - have the right to know."

"This is a victory for bloggers throughout the United States who expose local politicians with political agendas. Thanks to this brave judge, the First Amendment is alive and well."

In court on Friday, Manalapan Dream Team lawyers Weeks & McCarthy continued to paint their portrait of a town and nation that doesn’t need to have First Amendment guarantees. They claimed in court – as their evidence - if you look at da blog you come to the inescapable conclusion that da Mosked man is da hero of da blog.

So, this means because, as they claim, da Mosked man is da hero of this blog, that he must be da writer?

Judge Flynn saw through their purely speculative case, and ruled on da solid ground that he was not goin to violate anyone’s First Amendment rights. Anyone following this case should realize that da judge ruled by law and not innuendo. This judge deserves to know that by following da rule of law, his decision today sets a precedent that da nation of law-abiding judges will follow.

In a move that wreaked of desperation, Dream Team attorney Weeks even told da judge he could have Google send da private information about daTruthSquad directly, and he wouldn’t tell anybody.

Where did they get their law degrees? Da Dollar Store?

Da judge also asked a bombshell of a question to da Manalapan Legal Dream Team, asking if their clients (da Manalapan Township Committee and da people of Manalapan) knew they were trying to issue subpoenas about da First Amendment rights of an individual?

Of course, that question was answered by Township Attorney and Dream Team member Carolina MachoGrande, who’s Shock Quote was on November 28, “As far as any actions being taken against any outside parties in this litigation, this board (Township Committee) wouldn’t know why those actions are being taken, nor would I because I’m not involved in da case.”

It was also answered by Township Committeeman Mr. Anthony Gennaro, “I can’t contact Mr. Weeks (Manalapan Legal Dream Team member) because when I contact Mr. Weeks he wouldn’t take my phone call.”

DaTruth is, if you follow State Assemblywoman-elect & Dream Teamer MachoGrande’s quote closely, she says in effect da client “wouldn’t know why these actions are being taken.” This means either da Dream Team lawyers were running amock, which lends to da theory that this case is nothing more than a political vendetta, or da Township Committee was indeed clueless as to how their township tax dollars were being spent, which is another case in itself.

Along with da judge’s ruling on da First Amendment, he also ruled against da Mosked man’s request for sanctions against da Dream Team. DaTruthSquad has no doubt da local Snoozepaper will make that their headline in a future Back Page Barratta story next week. DaTruthSquad is curious, however, if they will ask questions of da Township Committee on daTruthSquad and da First Amendment issue. If they do not, and specifically don’t ask about why da town brought this First Amendment action, that would be an affront to every resident of da town. Da people have da right to know why da town’s elected officials brought this case, and why they allowed da lawyers to attempt to strip da First Amendment of da Constitution! DaTruthSquad will be watching da upcoming Snoozepaper stories carefully and their actions will be reported on this blog.

DaTruth is, if da leaders of da Township Committee of Manalapan had their way, this case would have been kept silent from da people. Thanks to da Electronic Frontier Foundation, this case, it’s legal briefs and even correspondence between lawyers was available for every citizen to see and read for themselves. The E.F.F. didn’t allow for innuendo or spin. They presented daTruth for everyone to see, and allowed every citizen to see the inside of this case so they could make their own informed decision. They deserve all the thanks here, because they preserved da First Amendment through their actions.

Thanks to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and attorneys Matthew Zimmerman and Frank Corrado, da First Amendment is alive and well, and da rights of bloggers and commenters are safe from those who call people like daTruthSquad, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay “anonymous bomb throwers.”

Anonymous bloggers are not “anonymous bomb throwers.” Instead, we da people are idividuals who believe in right against wrong, and we have a well-placed fear about politicians who believe in power instead of da people.

What you have seen thus far in da case of “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” is a case where Dream Team lawyers attempted to go da last mile to strip da First Amendment rights of an American citizen. They spent taxpayer money to do it, which is an affront to da citizens who had absolutely no say in da matter.

Is this case a political vendetta paid for by taxpayers who have no right to stop it? That is a question only you can answer.

Fortunately, a judge on Friday, December 21, 2007 gave his answer “for all da people.”

Fortunately, there are organizations like da Electronic Frontier Foundation, and hard working attorneys like Frank Corrado and Matthew Zimmerman, and judges like Superior Court Judge Terrence Flynn who believe in what da Founding Fathers stood for.

Da First Amendment is safe for another day from those who would desire to strip liberty from those they don’t like, and we should all thank God for that.

Consider that a Christmas gift from daTruthSquad and da TruthTellers who believe in da First Amendment.

Manalapan Legal Dream Team Costs: “In Excess of $100,000!”

That’s not fiction, and that’s not all. That’s da facts as claimed by Manalapan Mayor Andy Boy, and da meter is still running!

And let’s not forget a possible credibility issue.

Da legal case being watched around da world, “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” took a bizarre turn when da town gave out a contract to clean up da contaminated soil at da Dreyer Patch, also known as Manalapan’s version of Love Canal.

Will it cost $1,000,000 to clean up?

Maybe $500,000? Possibly $250,000? Only $150,000?

Well, sit down for this one – because da Manalapan Township Committee just gave out a contract for da soil “remediation” cleanup - $15,000!

No, that’s not a typo.

$15,000 is da cost, and a company called TTI Environmental of Moorestown, NJ got the contract, according to Back Page Barratta at da Snoozepaper.

Recently, Manalapan Mayor Andy Boy made a statement to da Snoozepaper saying, ” While Mr. Moskovitz's allegations are a humorous diversion from the very serious and disgraceful facts that his alleged malpractice has cost the taxpayers of Manalapan in excess of $100,000…..”

So, da taxpayers have spent “in excess of $100,000” on a case that is still not even one-tenth through da discovery process, and da cost of da cleanup is only $15,000?

Did anyone see da latest commercial…..

Cost to taxpayer for clean up contaminated soil: $15,000

Cost to taxpayers for legal bills: $100,000 and steadily climbing

Making taxpayers pay for a First Amendment case as a political vendetta: PRICELESS

Yes, taxpayers, you are footing an over $100,000 bill for a $15,000 contaminated soil cleanup, and da legal bills will soon be jumping exponentially!

Now da town engineer has also been racking up bills. CME engineer Greg Valesi told da Snoozepaper, according to Back Page, “Valesi also said the cleanup consisted of two separate aspects; one is the soil contamination in the immediate vicinity of the Dreyer home - contamination that was caused by an underground heating oil tank that leaked heating oil into the soil - as well as historic pesticide contamination that was found in an isolated patch of an adjoining former farm field.”

His bill for that work – and da meter is still running for da taxpayers – over $60,000 according to da Snoozepaper.

Questions immediately come to mind:

1. Why is da actual soil cleanup cost less than ¼ da costs that Valesi has racked up?

2. Why in da world is nobody on da Township Committee complaining that they wanted to buy Manalapan’s version of Love Canal and da Mosked Man gave da town an “out, and they don’t want to use it?

3. Why did, as da Snoozer report on September 12 that Manalapan Administrator Tara Lovrich bond for $50,000 for a $15,000 job?

4. Why, in da now famous “Rosman Editorial” did Valesi believe that figure to be as high as $115,000? Was he planning for a $15,000 cleanup and $100,000 for his “engineering fees?”

Where’s Chris Christie when you need him?

Now, fast forward to Friday when “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” goes to court. On da docket is not da issue of da land-deal-gone-bad. Da question taxpayers will be paying for is, can we please stick a fork in da First Amendment and say “it’s done.”

Da Manalapan Legal Dream Team will face Da Mosked Man and attorneys for da Electronic Frontier Foundation regarding da blogger known as daTruthSquad. Da issue of da case for da Manalapan Legal Dream Team is one of credibility. They believe da Mosked Man apparently has none. Da question is, which side has da credibility issue?

Credibility Issue 1: Dream Team Special Attorney McCarthy injects daTruthSquad into da land-deal-gone-bad.

On August 3, Dream Team lawyer Daniel McCarthy, representing and paid for by Manalapan entered his “Certification and Exhibits.” Here’s what he says:

Page 3: “Da blog is entitled ‘daTruthSquad’ and appears to have been written by defendant.”

It is followed by 20 pages of copies of daTruthSquad blog. What does a blog have to do with a land-deal-gone-bad real estate malpractice lawsuit?

Credibility Issue 2: Dream Team Special Attorney McCarthy catches “daTruthSquad-itis.”

Also on August 3, Dream Teamer McCarthy lays out his case, not about da land, but about da blog!

Page 11: “Defendant has also discussed the various aspects of this matter on his Internet blog, ‘daTruthSquad…..”

Page 12: “Regarding defendant’s Internet blog, ‘datruthSquad…..”

Page 14: “In violation of this order, defendant posted in his Internet blog….”

Page 20: “Defendant has also discussed the various aspects of this matter on his Internet blog, ‘daTruthSquad.”

Page 20: “Defendant tells his side of da story. In Da Truth or Da Consequences, defendant states that by commenting in da newspaper articles, da Mosked man used da Snoozer to his advantage.”

Credibility Issue 3: Dream Team Special Attorney McCarthy heads up-river without a paddle.

Da EFF has documented 18 different instances in a 54-page taxpayer-paid-for legal document that Dream Teamer McCarthy claims da Mosked man is daTruthSquad!

Credibility Issue 4: Dream Team Attorney Week’s plays “Flip-Flop”

On December 4, Dream Team member Len Garza of da Weeks law firm found new-and-improved ways of tripping over his own legal feet.

“It appears da poster may be da defendant in this litigation…”

On the December 12 Certification, da Dream Team attorney again claims da Mosked man is daTruthSquad.

“it will be confirmed that da defendant has made knowing misrepresentations to the court regarding his involvement with daTruthSquad blog.”

Then, there’s daTruthSquad’s favorite quote of da Dream Team.

“We argue, however, that any reasonable observer could look at daTruthSquad blog and draw da plausible conclusion that Mr. Moskovitz could indeed be da poster. For example, on daTruthSquad blog, da poster refers to himself as da Mosked man…..”

So, what this Dream Teamer is saying is, “da poster refers to himself,” and at da same time, “Mr. Moskovitz could be da poster.”

DaTruth is, da Manalapan Legal Dream Team continues to make claims that da Mosked man is daTruthSquad, but there’s only one little thing missing from their argument – EVIDENCE!

For da sake of argument, fictional lawyer DaTruthSquad can claim one of da five members of da Manalapan Township Committee is a Cocker Spaniel. Now, daTruthSquad must prove da point, so “lawyer daTruthSquad” subpoenas each members complete medical record from birth to today, demanding all illnesses ever had, doctors notes, etc. You see, knowing every detail of their medical history is important to lawyer daTruthSquad’s case.

Now, as we all know, no member of da Manalapan Township Committee is a dog, but you get da point. In order to make da claims da Manalapan Legal Dream Team does you need evidence. Belief is not evidence, nor is a claim or accusation.

What does this mean to you? Their claim basically states anyone can be daTruthSquad.

Maybe someone should buy da members of da Manalapan Legal Dream Team one of those “I am daTruthSquad” T-shirts?

And, da inherently dangerous point here is, if da Manalapan Legal Dream Team is successful, then any politician who doesn't like a comment made by anyone, including those anonymous, can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to seek your identity - based solely on who they "think" you might be.

Dangerous indeed - and that's daTruth.

Special daTruthSquad Coming Soon

In da trial now getting worldwide acclaim, "DaTownship of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man," many claims are made by da Manalapan Legal Dream Team regarding da identity of daTruthSquad and da Mosked Man.

In da next edition of daTruthSquad, see for yourself just how many ways da Manalapan Legal Dream Team make da claims - including daTruthSquad's favorite:

"We argue .... that any reasonable observer could look at daTruthSquad blog and draw da plausable conclusion that Mr. Moskovitz could indeed be da poster."

Or, "He may be, while he might be, it is possible he could be, unless I think he can be considered, but it is possible, unless he bears a resemblence to, although it seems, but then again, he probably is."

Stay tuned!

You’re Paying Da Money – So You Don’t Need To Know

That doesn’t sound right, does it? But if you are a paid, supposed public servant member of da Manalapan Township Committee, that is exactly what is happening, according to what has been said in a November 28th, 2007 Manalapan Township Committee meeting!

As you are already aware, when asked by a town resident if a 5th attorney would needed to be added to da Manalapan Legal Dream Team, da answers from Manalapan Township Attorney / soon-to-be State Assemblywoman Carolina MachoGrande surprised some, shocked many, and is now da fodder of conversation about stripping da First Amendment in North America, Europe, and even Japan!

In this meeting we learned that anyone with an opinion may be an “anonymous bomb thrower,” da governing body bringing da First Amendment case “wouldn’t know why those actions are being taken,” and person paid to legally guide those bringing da case said “You don’t pay me to monitor this case.”

Hmmm, smells like fish. Is something fishy here? Here’s da proof.

MachoGrande Shock Quote#1

“As far as any actions being taken against any outside parties in this litigation, this board (Township Committee) wouldn’t know why those actions are being taken, nor would I because I’m not involved in da case.”

OK, so you have a legal problem, you hire a lawyer, and you don’t even ask one question about da case YOU are bringing? Here she’s saying that even though da case is “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man,” da 5 members of da township committee, da ones that voted to pursue this matter, “wouldn’t know why those actions are being taken?” Don’t they have da right to know what da lawyers they appointed and are paying for are doing on behalf of da town they serve?

And, in case anyone’s forgotten, it’s “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man.” This means over 34,000 people are bringing this lawsuit against one Mosked man, in addition to challenging da First Amendment of da Constitution! Is this truly a scenario of “Hear no evil, see no evil, and looking evil?”

MachoGrande Shock Quote#2

"Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

DaTruthSquad is glad that the 12th District’s soon-to-be State Assemblywoman is heading to Trenton “fairly certain” what our founding fathers were thinking over 200 years ago. If you drive past Monmouth Battlefield at night and you think you hear moaning, that’s da sound of patriotic soldiers who fought for our freedoms sick to their stomachs at da thought of losing one of our most important ones.

As for “anonymous bomb throwing,” consult some of your founding fathers like Alexander Hamilton and John Jay who wrote da Federalist Papers using anonymous names. How do you think we were able to have da Constitution ratified? Other “bomb throwers” of that day included James Madison & Benjamin Frankin. If da Manalapan Legal Dream Team were around back then, would Ben Frankin and da man on da $10 dollar bill be handed a subpoena?

MachoGrande Shock Quote#3

“There is nobody more motivated than an attorney working on a contingency fee.”

Does that mean any attorney being paid for their work by da hour is a slacker? Should we not trust da attorney who gets paid hourly and not at da end? According to da now-famous “Rosman Editorial,” Manalapan Legal Dream Team members Daniel McCarthy, MachoGrande, and Robert Renaud are hourly lawyers. Are they not as “motivated?” If Manalapan loses da case, can we expect blame to go to lawyers who “weren’t as motivated?”

MachoGrande Shock Quote#4

“You don’t know when someone’s operating on you why da surgeon’s making da incisions where he is or what his choices are there.”

Let’s try this analogy, ”OK Mr. Smith. There may be a problem with your heart, or maybe your liver. I’m not playing golf tomorrow, so we’ll cut you open somewhere and do whatever. There’s no reason you need to know. Just pay the bill when we’re done.”

Remind daTruthSquad NEVER to ask Doctor MachoGrande for medical help.

MachoGrande Shock Quote#5

“You don’t pay me to monitor this case.”

Hmmm. Manalapan is bringing da legal case of “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man.” It’s now da talk of da civilized world. Carolina MachoGrande is da “Manalapan Township attorney.” Who did da Gang of Three go to for legal advice in order to allow them to properly vote on this matter? If they didn’t go to da person Manalapan’s tax dollars are paying for, then whom do da Manalapan Township committee go to for legal advice? Then, what exactly are you being paid for?

MachoGrande Shock Quote#6

“Despite da rumors that 4 attorneys are on da case.”

That specific information came directly from da now-famous “Rosman Editorial.” Is da Snoozepaper’s Mark Rosman spreading rumors? Either Rosman is 100% correct, he lied, or he’s a rumor mongerer. Read his brilliant editorial for yourself.

MachoGrande Shock Quote#7

“You should call your township attorney if you cannot get an answer from the attorney that’s been hired.”

Doesn’t that contradict Shock Quote #5 & #1 - “You don’t pay me to monitor this case,” and “nor would I because I’m not involved in da case.”

Da Quotes of da Meeting, however, did not come from Carolina MachoGrande, or See no evil, hear no evil, or looking evil. It came from Mr. Anthony Gennaro who made more sense in 2 sentences than anything heard in that meeting.

Mr. Anthony Gennaro Quote#1

“My concern is we swore to uphold da Constitution, and da last thing I want to do is challenge someone’s First Amendment rights.”

Bravo - a member of da Manalapan Township Committee who gets it!

Mr. Anthony Gennaro Quote#2

“I can’t contact Mr. Weeks (Manalapan Legal Dream Team member) because when I contact Mr. Weeks he wouldn’t take my phone call.”

So, da lawyer handling da case of “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” wouldn’t take da phone calls of one of da members of da committee that is bringing da lawsuit? There’s Manalapan taxpayer money well spent.

DaTruth is, there were only 2 members of da 5-member Manalapan Township committee asking questions, while da now-infamous Gang of Three remained silent. And, it was Mr. Anthony Gennaro who was intelligent enough to remember da oath he took to uphold. Unlike da Gang of Three, it would seem that his oath did not include da words, “political agenda,” or “of da cronies, by da cronies, and for da cronies.”

And, if you have any question regarding any quote, tune into Manalapan's Channel 77 to watch and hear each word said.

Even better news – MachoGrande will be making da state’s laws as da newest State Assemblywoman starting next month! Will da First Amendment be da 1st law repealed?

And that’s daTruth.

Thursday, December 13, 2007


In da latest events regarding “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man,” it is now da Mosked Man himself that has fired da latest salvo and da targets are not just 2 of da 4 members of “Manalapan’s Legal Dream Team” who could potentially face sanctions for their actions.

According to court papers filed by da Mosked Man, an individual with intimate knowledge of matters in this case and with a central role in voting to approve da case is current Manalapan Mayor Andy Boy. And, if all of da Mosked Man’s allegations are proved, then Mayor Andy Boy might need an attorney of his own to fight these allegations!

Here’s da story (but don't expect back Page Barratta to have it):

On December 11, da Mosked Man entered a court document entitled “Defendant’s Answer and Third Party Complaint.” In it, da Mosked Man makes shocking allegations, that if true, could in fact show what da Mosked man has alleged all along, that “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” may be nothing more than a political vendetta being waged by bitter enemies and being paid for by – you da taxpayer!

In his latest legal brief, da Mosked Man calls into question da purchase of da Dreyer Patch, citing da town apparently knew full well of da oil tank on da property, yet they still wanted to purchase it.

5. “Previously, in 2004, the Plaintiff was fully aware that the property had an underground storage tank that had been in service on the property, together with an above ground storage tank used in 2004 by the property owner. Despite this knowledge, Plaintiff (Manalapan) proceeded to agree to end a litigation with the owner of the property that had commenced in 2003, to avoid further litigation costs. Said settlement mandated that the Township obtain the property without regard to conditions or the underground storage tank of which they had full knowledge.”

10. The same Township Engineer who served as Township Engineer in 2004, and who served as Township Engineer in 2006 and 2007, continued through 2005 to serve on many matters on which he had been involved prior to 2005, including numerous matters on which Defendant worked as Township Attorney.

11. At no time did that professional ever indicate that there was a problem with the property which the Township was obligated to obtain due to the 2004 order

That “Township Engineer” has been identified in court records as being Greg Valesi, da current Manalapan Township engineer. If you think da story ends here, you’re in for a big surprise.

Da Mosked Man claims he had a meeting with then-township administrator Alayne Shepler and Phil Del Turco, da town CFO, and according to da Mosked Man, “neither expressed any reservations about proceeding with da closing.”

Shortly after that meeting, da Mosked Man allegedly received da following email from Committeeman Andy Boy, “Stu: I just wanted to tell you what a great job you’ve been doing at the meetings. You’ve been extremely professional and have made us look
brilliant for your appointment. Thanks again, Andrew.”

Question – Why would Andy Boy send such a complimentary email to da Mosked man if he had done something so heinously wrong as he claims now?

A Major Development -- Fast-forward to 2006, when according to da Mosked Man it is alleged both he and Andy Boy were told by then-township attorney and hand-picked selection by da Queen, “Conflict-of-Interest” Kinneally “there was no sustainable action against da Mosked Man for legal malpractice given the facts of this case.”

This means if true, an attorney under employ of Manalapan at da time believed there was no case!

Subsequently, Kinneally was not retained after December 31, 2006, and da Mosked man alleges he was told not to report to a township committee meeting in December 2006. If his decision about da Mosked Man was a factor, it is unknown.

Then, according to da Mosked Man, enter Daniel McCarthy, a lawyer from Union County who da Mosked Man claims has ties with Norman Kauff, a former Manalapan Township attorney with an alleged grudge against da Mosked man.

Da Mosked man alleges Kauff, “chose not to attend any meetings, presumably to avoid the confrontation with Defendant over his competence and billing. Nonetheless, he continued to receive a salary for attending meetings he never attended, adding to his pension, and consequently defrauding the state pension system.”

However, da Mosked man says Kauff “chose not to attend any meetings, presumably to avoid the confrontation with Defendant over his competence and billing. Nonetheless, he continued to receive a salary for attending meetings he never attended, adding to his pension, and consequently defrauding the state pension system.” Kauff would eventually resign.

Da Mosked Man also alleges that current “Manalapan Legal Dream Team” member McCarthy “has obtained numerous political appointments through Mr. Kauff, including appointments in Manalapan as Planning Board attorney and as special counsel. In December, 2006, Mr. McCarthy advised the township committee to take steps against Defendant resulting in this litigation.”

Of course, this is at da same time that township attorney Kinneally allegedly told da Mosked man he had da facts on HIS side!

But wait, it gets better!

“In February, at Mr. McCarthy’s recommendation, the Plaintiff hired attorney David R. Weeks, the zoning board attorney in Mr. McCarthy’s business location of Cranford, New Jersey, an attorney specializing in medical malpractice, to handle this litigation.”

Why have a lawyer specializing in medical malpractice to be da “point man” in a land case?

Da Mosked man detailed how it was Mayor Andy Boy who allegedly “arranged for himself and Susan Cohen to have separate campaign funds,” showing both Republicans would not run together, which became fact during the 2007 election.

In what may be another damning example of town leaders ignoring da Constitution of da USA, da Mosked Man alleges, “Mr. Lucas then conspired with Mr. McCarthy both in papers submitted to this Court and in demands made at Township Committee meetings, that Mrs. Cohen have no communication with Defendant whatsoever, a demand that would be unconstitutional even if a political campaign were not involved. For a significant period, Mrs. Cohen complied with that demand, under threat by Mr. Lucas and Mr. McCarthy of expulsion from the Township Committee proceedings.”

Have any of these people ever heard of da Constitution??

Da Mosked Man claims directly his First Amendment rights were violated, saying, “Andrew Lucas acted in concert with other municipal officials to deprive Defendant of his first amendment right to participate in the political process for the candidate of his choice.”

Da Mosked man continues, “Andrew Lucas, at taxpayer expense, deprived Defendant of his First and Fourteenth Amendment rights when he, under color of state law, and in conspiracy with other officials of Plaintiff, commenced this litigation and demanded that he immediately cease communication with Committeewoman Susan Cohen. Such actions by Mr. Lucas amount to willful fraud, malice or misconduct, precluding the Township from defending him in this matter pursuant to its own ordinance.”

DaTruth is, da more one reads all of da legal papers submitted by all of da legal eagles, and all available on da EFF website, you have to ask yourself:

1. Why is a medical malpractice attorney heading up da “Manalapan Legal Dream Team” for a land case, and why do 3 of da 4 lawyers hail from Union County?
2. What in da world does a blogger have to do with this “land case?”
3. What kind of trouble can Dream Teamer McCarthy get into if it’s proven that da Mosked man isn’t daTruthSquad? (more on that upcoming)
4. Does Mayor Andy Boy need a lawyer?
5. How much money has Manalapan spent on da case thus far?
6. How much will it cost to clean up da Dreyer Patch - $18,000 or $115,000?
7. What does Norman Kauff really have to do with this?

DaTruthSquad would like to remind all da TruthTellers you are cordially invited to attend da December 21 court date in Freehold. You’ll be able to watch Manalapan’s Legal Dream Team in action. And, you can wear your “I am daTruthSquad” T-shirts!

DaTruth is, this case isn’t going away. Da Mosked man has apparently dug in his heels. Da Manalapan Legal Dream Team will fight to da end, and daTruthSquad will be your guide to all da facts without da fiction.

Remember, Manalapan Dream Team attorney / state Assemblywoman-elect Carolina MachoGrande tipped her Dream Team’s hand when she said, "There is no one more motivated than an attorney working on a contingency basis (Weeks)."

Remember what she also said - and a tape of that meeting was smuggled out of Manalapan to prove it: "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

Da founding fathers are rolling over in their graves after hearing that one. And that’s daTruth.

Breaking News: "Contaminated" Soil Cleanup Costs Skyrocket 600%

Was it not Sir Walter Scott who said, “Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive!

DaTruthSquad has uncovered unbelievable news regarding da situation in Manalapan and da cleanup of contaminated soil on da Dreyer Patch that led to da legal malpractice lawsuit against da Mosked man, and of course, included in that very same lawsuit da attempts to take da First Amendment of da Constitution and bury that in that "contaminated" soil!

Here’s da story….

On September 26, Mr. Rosman wrote what daTruthSquad calls "da shot heard 'round New Jersey for his brilliant editorial entitled, “Legal case is costing town, but how much?” In it, not only does he question da case now da talk of North America and Europe called, “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man," he asks da hard questions to not only da Mosked man, but also to David Weeks, one of da Gang of Three’s 4 – count ‘em – 4 attorneys according to Rosman's count involved with Manalapan Township handle this “land-deal-gone-bad” case, and Manalapan Township engineer Greg Valesi.

Remember, it was Mr. Rosman who first uncovered that 4 – count ‘em – 4 attorneys were involved to handle this “land deal gone bad” case.

Please read carefully da following, including Rosman’s startling conclusions and da statements made by Valesi in da Rosman editorial:

It was only a few months ago that a figure of $18,000 was being floated around in conjunction with the remediation project, and only a few weeks ago that a figure of $50,000 was cited by a (unnamed) municipal official. Now the amount for the cleanup work is tens of thousands of dollars higher.”

“Manalapan has a contaminated piece of property that has to be cleaned up. Township engineer Greg Valesi told me (Rosman) on Sept. 20 his best estimate for that work is now between $80,000 and $115,000, including the remediation work and engineering fees. He said, "I am trying to minimize costs for everyone involved.

Rosman said of Valesi in his editorial da following - "he (Valesi) has not done any work related to the Manalapan vs. Moskovitz case and will not do so if asked by the Township Committee."

While it is nice to see that Valesi is “trying to minimize costs for everyone involved," as Rosman said Valesi is quoted, apparently he may have to cut some corners, because he’s not getting anywhere close to that amount of money!

First, follow this quote timeline from da Rosman editorial:

1. “It was only a few months ago that a figure of $18,000.”

2. “Only a few weeks ago that a figure of $50,000 was cited by a (unnamed) municipal official.”

3. “Valesi told me on Sept. 20 his best estimate for that work is now between $80,000 and $115,000.”

The timeline shows Manalapan’s soil remediation work and engineering fees went from just $18,000 to $115,000 in da span of a few months? Why? What caused this huge spike in costs?

Before you ponder that question, ponder this – in Back Page Barratta’s report entitled, “Committee OKs bonding for soil remediation” dated September 12, da town (and no retractions to-date) has already bonded $50,000 for that very same soil remediation job!

“Township Administrator Tara Lovrich said $50,000 will cover the costs associated with soil remediation work Manalapan will undertake on land that was purchased in order to expand the Manalapan Recreation Center, Route 522.”

So, a few months ago da costs to clean things up was $18,000, and Administrator Lovrich bonded da cost to da taxpayers at $50,000. Why did Manalapan Township engineer Greg Valesi say in Rosman’s editorial, speaking to Rosman exactly 8 days after da Barratta story hit front lawns - that da costs would be “now between $80,000 and $115,000?”

Riddle me this Batman:

If Valesi is correct, then why did his boss, Township Administrator Tara Tiara only bond for $50,000 (not including interest on that money) before September 12?

If da cost is only $50,000, then why does Valesi claim da costs to be much more? Remember Rosman's editorial, “Valesi told me on Sept. 20 his best estimate for that work is now between $80,000 and $115,000."

If Valesi is right, where is da extra $65,000 he says it will cost to clean up da Dreyer Patch coming from?

If Lovrich is right, and da cost is $50,000 as she bonded for with taxpayer money, then why are Valesi's numbers so inflated?

Is da soil remediation work $50,000 and da engineering fees $65,000?

If da costs are $115,000, then where will da difference come from?

I’m sure da taxpayers of Manalapan, da folks footing da bill for “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” would like to know.

DaTruth is, this is a classic example of either da right hand, paid for by taxpayer money, doesn't know what da left hand, also paid with taxpayer money is doing, or it's taxpayer-paid town officials running amok.

Prior to September 12, Township Administrator Tara Lovrich is reported (no retraction to-date) in da Barratta story to have bonded $50,000 for da soil remediation job, da very job that led to da lawsuit, “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man.” Then, 8 days after that story first appeared on people’s wet lawns, Snoozer editor Mark Rosman reports, “It was only a few months ago that a figure of $18,000,” and then “Only a few weeks ago that a figure of $50,000 was cited by a (unnamed) municipal official.” Then Township Engineer Greg Valesi tells Rosman during a September 20 interview da costs would be “now between $80,000 and $115,000?”

Was da Barratta story inaccurate? Were Back Page's facts wrong? If so, why no retraction to-date?

DaTruth is here and it is irrefutable – How could da costs increase to clean up da Dreyer Patch nearly 600% according to Valesi's estimates in da span of a few months, yet da town only bond for da cost at half of what da Township engineer Greg Valesi says to da Snoozepaper 8 days after da bond is announced!

Mayor Andy Boy, Deputy Mayor Queen, Township Attorney Carolina "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing" MachoGrande, Township Engineer Greg “Senor Soil” Valesi, Township Administrator Tara Tiara, it looks as though you all have some explaining to do.

And, “For All Da Taxpayers,” each of you taxpayer-paid employees have da responsibility to da taxpayers who pay your salaries to answer da questions before you.

To all da TruthTellers - da next Manalapan Township Committee meeting is Wednesday December 12. During the Open Public Session, ask da Gang of Three, Mr. Valesi, or Senorita Lovrich about these costs and why da numbers according to township officials increased 600%! Ask to know if Mr. Rosman's editorial was right or wrong. Ask to know daTruth from your elected officials.

Just tell them "daTruthSquad sent ya."

Is there possible deception here on da part of a township official? Did da township engineer not know da town had already put a price on da Dreyer Patch cleanup? Why did costs increase over 600% by Valesi’s calculations from just a few months prior? Why did Valesi say “he has not done any work related to the Manalapan vs. Moskovitz case and will not do so if asked by the Township Committee?”

Are cartoon characters running this town?

Finally, daTruthSquad proudly announces da Snoozepaper’s Mark Rosman will be knighted an honorary TruthTeller for his investigative journalism that led to this startling discovery.

Congratulations Mr. Rosman, becoming a TruthTeller is always more advantageous than hanging a BaconHead on your wall!

You da taxpayers deserve to know - And that’s daTruth!

Manalapan's "Secret" Becomes Worldwide Spectacle

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Is it possible contaminated soil cleanup costs can skyrocket 600%????? Stand-by! DaTruth will be revealed!

A special message from daTruthSquad: I want to thank all da TruthTellers for making this blog one of the most-viewed. DaTruthSquad is now averaging about 800 views per day! In addition, thanks to you, da story that certain politicians tried to sweep under da rug is now being played out to a worldwide audience! How does daTruthSquad know this --- read further.

It's a story you've probably heard thousands of times. Three small town politicians aren't happy about what a blogger who discovers what they're really up to writes about their political activities. They hatch a plan to sue da former lawyer about a land-deal-gone-bad, but in da same process go after da blogger too, as court papers filed by da Manalapan legal dream team show da blogger and da former lawyer are one-in-da-same.

They have 4 dream-team lawyers involved in da case, including da town's attorney/soon-to-be state Assemblywoman who should give any parent of a kid in law school cause for serious concern when she said, "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

Months ago when da case of "Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man" began, all of da early court papers had no mention of daTruthSquad. Then, enter special attorney Daniel McCarthy, who laced a legal brief with numerous direct references to daTruthSquad, and all of a sudden da case of da land-deal-gone-bad and legal malpractice against da Mosked man took a decidedly different look.

Well, look at this case now.

"Motivated" attorney David Weeks, hired by Manalapan on a contingency fee, sent a civil subpoena to Google in California for a trainload of information about daTruthSquad. So, daTruthSquad began to think: Why would a governmental body want to know who little-old daTruthSquad is? Why do the politicians need to know? Did da British sue to find out who da pamphleteers were? Is this subpoena even enforceable? Is this fair? Is this right?

Apparently daTruthSquad isn't alone.

Since news first broke just a few weeks ago of what da politicians of one small town in New Jersey want to do with YOUR money da word has spread around da world! So let's take a look at a story about a small New Jersey town now on a worldwide stage.

Thanks to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a case that was closed to even da taxpaying citizens who are footing da bill because 3 members of da Manalapan Township Committee voted to fund it, you can read every legal brief and correspondence into a case that is now fascinating da world.

And, you da people can read what da world is saying....

They're talking about it in New Jersey on sites including:

DaTruth is, Manalapan is being watched around da world for what it is attempting to do! By a using "motivated" lawyer, and another 3 being paid by da hour, they want to unmask an anonymous blogger who wrote about their political activities. If they succeed, da First Amendment of da Constitution will be forever changed, and those who speak out against politicians could potentially find themselves at da receiving end of frivolous lawsuits.

Remember, as Manalapan Township Attorney & soon-to-be State Assemblywoman Carolina MachoGrande is quoted as saying, "There is no one more motivated than an attorney working on a contingency fee."

By da way, MachoGrande also said this: "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

Da story continues, but now for an audience around da world. And that's DaTruth.

Breaking News: Bloggers & Commentors Compared to "Bomb Throwers"

President Calvin Coolidge said, "To live under da American Constitution is da greatest political privilege that was ever accorded to da human race."

President Abraham Lincoln said, "Don't interfere with anything in da Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties."

Manalapan Township Attorney and State Assemblywoman-elect Carolina MachoGrande said, "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

Say What????? Huh????

Here's da story....

During da November 28 Manalapan Township Committee meeting, this statement was made by Manalapan Township Attorney and State Assemblywoman-elect Carolina MachoGrande in response to a question from an audience member regarding da case of “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man.”

With da Gang of Three playing da role of "See no evil, hear no evil, and looking evil," enter MachoGrande who singlehandedly gave bloggers who believe in Democracy and Liberty a bad case of “MachoGrande’s Revenge” that a truckload of Maalox couldn’t cure.

In da local Snoozepaper, Back Page Barratta's story said da woman also asked "what the township would gain by identifying the blogger."

According to Barratta, da reply was "Casagrande said she would not second guess another attorney's legal strategy." MachoGrande is also quoted (without retraction) in Back Page's story as saying, "There is no one more motivated than an attorney working on a contingency basis."

Does this mean a lawyer isn’t a good or motivated lawyer unless they work on a contingency basis? Does this mean all lawyers are unmotivated if they’re being paid by the hour? MachoGrande is reportedly paid by the hour, so does that make her less motivated?

I would hope that when MachoGrande was in law school they taught da case of Talley vs California, a very famous legal case where da Court said da First Amendment protects the distribution of unsigned handbills. In that decision, Justice Black wrote, "persecuted groups and sects from time to time throughout history have been able to criticize oppressive practices and laws either anonymously or not at all."

In other words, da protection of a person or person's anonymity isn't limited to some types of speech - and da use of da Internet doesn't giver persecutors a green light to remove that protection.

In da December 5 edition of da Snoozepaper, editor Mark Rosman, whose brilliant September 26 editorial helped expose da potential trampling of da First Amendment, dropped another bombshell (not to be confused with MachoGrande’s now-infamous "bomb throwers" line), writing, "As politicians and newspaper editors are finding out these days, criticism of our decisions and our actions is now meat for Internet message boards and blogs. We may not like the jabs our anonymous critics deliver, but unless what they have written about us is absolutely libelous and defamatory, we, as public figures, have little recourse."

"And so after all of that, we come full circle, and I ask you this question. What does all this have to do with Alice? You remember Alice, don't you? Alice is the contaminated soil at those properties on Route 522. Has anybody seen any soil cleaned up yet? I haven't."

Then there’s Editor Bozo Bean, who beside calling daTruthSquad "a baconheaded blogger," and "wouldn't mind seeing da Truth Squad drive off a nice, steep cliff. Given the opportunity, I might even give him (or her, or them) a little push," he also avoided drinking da Gang of Three’s anti-Freedom-of-Speech Kool Aid.

So you know, Bozo and daTruthSquad don't always see eye-to-eye, but daTruthSquad knows this - and Bozo knows it too - Bozo has every right to mock daTruthSquad to his heart’s content. Why -- because of a little-known document in places like Manalapan Town Hall and North Korea known as da First Amendment.

Da Bean wrote da following, "this whole thing looks like nothing but a thinskinned local government's attempt to quash the First Amendment rights of an individual, or individuals, because it doesn't like their opinions. And they're fighting the battle on the taxpayers' dime, without ever asking a single one of those taxpayers whether they wanted the fight in the first place."

Manalapan Township Attorney and State Assemblywoman-elect Carolina MachoGrande said, "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing."

DaTruth is, da case of "Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man," as daTruthSquad has been saying all along isn't about a land-deal-gone-bad. It's about Exhibit "L" in da Motion to Quash, a list of 18 times Manalapan’s hired attorney Daniel (being paid by the hour, so does that mean he’s less motivated?) McCarthy alleged that da Mosked man is indeed daTruthSquad. And, it's about a governmental body deciding they did not like what one lone blogger was saying by shining a light on events elected politicians and others wanted to keep hidden from view.

DaTruth is, nobody should be able to pervert da Constitution of da United States because hidden agendas are outed, or truths are told that you don't want others to hear.

Manalapan Township Attorney and State Assemblywoman-elect Carolina MachoGrande said, "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted."

Fortunately for all da people, da person who is "fairly certain" what da founding fathers were thinking at da time will soon be heading off to Trenton to make da laws of da state of New Jersey.

DaTruthSquad can't wait for da new Jay Leno jokes about this!

Da elected officials of Manalapan took an oath to "uphold da Constitution." For Manalapan's Gang of Three, "See no evil, hear no evil, and looking evil," it does not mean to ignore da parts of da Constitution you don't like, or don't want others to enjoy.

Manalapan Township Attorney and State Assemblywoman-elect Carolina MachoGrande said, "Da First Amendment didn't mean to provide for anonymous bomb throwing. I’m fairly certain that’s not what the First Amendment or the founding fathers meant when the First Amendment was drafted." She may have forgotten that Benjamin Franklin was an anonymous writer, as were da pamphleteers like Alexander Hamilton. They were supported by untold numbers of brave souls who fought for da very freedoms we enjoy today, unless, that is, you write about one very small town in New Jersey that finds fault with da First Amendment.

As a blogger, commentor, or anyone with an opinion that a politician doesn't agree with, the attorney/politician's statement should scare you to the core. It means anyone with an opinion that a politician doesn't agree with can be branded "a bomb thrower," and face taxpayer-funded legal action by 4 lawyers, of which at least 1 is "motivated."

Here's another quote to remember - this from daTruthSquad: “As chains of Democracy are forged, da links intertwined, it's strength cannot be severed by mere words. Then, da first speech censored, da first freedom denied, da first thought forbidden. Now that same chain binds freedom, and Democracy is lost.”

And that's daTruth.

BREAKING NEWS: Sanctions Motion Filed Against Manalapan Legal Dream Team

In a stunning new twist of events, DaTruthSquad has learned that da target of da Manalapan land-deal-gone-bad case in “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” has filed a document in court alleging inappropriate actions by 2 attorneys representing Manalapan, as claimed by da Mosked man in his court filings.

In what is called the Certification in Support of Motions for Sanctions,” da Mosked man alleges numerous charges against attorneys David Weeks and Daniel McCarthy, both of whom da Mosked man claims represents Manalapan Township in da legal case that is now da talk of da USA and Canada.

There are amazing allegations made in da Mosked man’s legal papers, including da fact Manalapan Township hired David Weeks and his law firm, and according to da Mosked man, while “Mr. Weeks, the Plaintiff’s attorney is an experienced litigator. He is a medical malpractice defense attorney.” This means da town bringing both a First Amendment and Real Estate lawsuit against da Mosked man, and hired a firm supposedly specializing in medical malpractice!

In addition, da Mosked man alleges what daTruthSquad has said all along – that da case of “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man” apparently uses da land deal to attack da blogger. Equally important, da Mosked man claims he personally was never served with da subpoena and did not give any notice to da Mosked man, in violation of da law “Rule 4:14-7.”

Da Mosked man also alleges Weeks “intentionally withheld service of da subpoena from” da Mosked man.

In da Mosked man’s 18-page legal document filed with da court, and able to be viewed by all here, da Mosked man alleges various improprieties, which daTruthSquad will highlight a select few.

Page 2 – Alleging Township Attorney Carolina MachoGrande was aware “there was no legal authorization for this action and failed to so inform this Court,” thus “in breach of her duty to this Court as the Township Attorney for Manalapan.”

Page 3 – Alleges attorney Weeks “violates New Jersey Law governing contingent fees, namely Rule 1:21-7. This rule prohibits any open-ended contingent fee agreement that requires payment of a 33 1/3% contingent fee on recovery amounts that exceed $500,000. There is no cap to Mr. Week’s 33 1/3% contingency fee recover.”

Page 4 – Alleges “Da Township agreed to this Order with the full knowledge of da existence of da oil tank,” meaning they knew da oil tank existed before da Mosked man became involved.

Page 5 – In what can only be described as a rebuttal of comments made during a November 28 Manalapan Township Committee meeting, daMosked man alleges there are in fact 4 – count ‘em – 4 attorneys involved in da legal process against Da Mosked man, and that da town forces “the taxpayers of Manalapan to pay twice for the same legal services, in that three attorneys are being paid by da hour, while da fourth gets a contingent fee providing for no deduction for any amount paid to other attorneys doing the legal work on this matter.” In addition, da Mosked man alleges it is “offensive, if not illegal ‘double dipping’ forcing the taxpayers to pay twice for da same work.”

Page 5 – Alleges “If I (da Mosked Man) were to lose this case, I (da Mosked Man) would undoubtedly be da first attorney in the history of New Jersey, if not da entire nation, to be held legally negligent for following a prior court order obtained before I (da Mosked Man) even became involved in da matter.”

Page 7 – Claims da subpoena for information on daTruthSquad issued by da Weeks firm employed by Manalapan “Violates da NJ Court Rules.” Da Mosked man also alleges “Mr. Weeks’ firm has violated this Rule of Professional Conduct. Da integrity of da judicial system mandates that this violation not simply be ignored.”

As for Daniel McCarthy, another of da dream team lawyers whose services are reportedly being retained by Manalapan, he too is not immune. Da Mosked Man says on Page 12, “After attaching voluminous excerpts from da blog site to his Certification, Mr. McCarthy extended his misrepresentation to this Court to da absolute limit, stating unequivocably in his brief that I (da Mosked Man) was, in fact, DaTruthSquad.

DaTruth is, da Mosked man makes very clear da real motive behind “Da Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man. “It is clear that da purpose of da subpoena, if not this entire litigation, was to embarrass or burden a third person, da anonymous blogger known as “daTruthSquad.” Da subpoena has nothing whatsoever to do with da purported basis of this litigation, my following a court order to obtain a parcel of land.”

In addition to all claims made in his Sanctions Motion to the court, da Mosked man is also asking da court that “Mr. McCarthy should be forced to pay attorneys fees for all of the motions generated by his false statements to this court as to the identity of daTruthSquad.”

As for Weeks, da Mosked man wants from da court an order “prohibiting them or any attorney for Plaintiff from engaging in any discovery without a prior order of the court,” and from both attorneys a combined $5,000 to pay for da Mosked man’s attorney fees.

DaTruth is, and da Mosked man laid da claim on da table, there needs to be a solid and undisputable determination as to exactly what this legal case is all about. Is da Town of Manalapan going after da Mosked man because of a land-deal-gone-bad, or do they want to simply expose daTruthSquad, who has shined a light on da inner workings of some big fish in da little pond? Is this case about real estate or da removal of da First Amendment of da Constitution?

DaTruthSquad must also remind those few about a few fine folks who wrote da Federalist papers back in the late 1700’s. Da men who wrote it used da pseudonym “Publius,” and did so to hide their identities for fear of retribution from da government of da day. Those men, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison helped build this great nation. DaTruthSquad believes da founding fathers, while they may have never heard of da internet or jet planes, knew full well what they were doing, since that great document they put together known as da Constitution of da USA has withstood da test of time for 220 years.

And, as da Star Ledger brilliantly stated in its editorial, "Manalapan leaders should remember how those who tried to suppress the leafleteers fared: Not well."

DaTruth is, we live by a complex and meaningful set of laws known as da Constitution. You can't take that document and pervert or trample it solely because you are a small-town politician. And that’s daTruth!
