How Manalapan's Taxpayer Money Is SILENTLY Spent

There are two things for certain in life - death and taxes.

There are three things certain for life as a taxpayer in Manalapan - death, incredibly high taxes, and more money wastefully & needlessly spent on lawyers.

We start first with da now-infamous "Township of Manalapan vs Da Mosked Man" lawsuit that gained worldwide scorn for da sidebar lawsuit attempting to erase da First Amendment. You have to remember that da now-infamous was actually about a land-deal-gone-wrong, but thanks to a few elected politicians, and a handful of lawyers called da Manalapan Legal Dream Team, it turned into something else.

Instead of da township committee going after da former land owners for $10,500 to clean up a minor home heating spill, da town instead has spent of YOUR TAXPAYER $$$$$$ at least $40,000 for an engineering assessment from a company that has donated $$$$$ to political causes of da party in power in Manalapan, lawyers who have donated $$$$$ to political causes of da party in power in Manalapan, and went after a lawyer who apparently hasn't donated $$$$$ to political causes of da party in power in Manalapan.

Now comes a number of rumors that da lead attorney in da case - who has been a part of this since it began 2007 - is no longer handling da case. If this is true, then who is handling the case now? What will happen to this case? Will another Manalapan Legal Dream Team lawyer step up and put their name & reputation on the line? Will da township committee hire ANOTHER lawyer at TAXPAYER EXPENSE? If he is bowing out, does Manalapan owe him money? And while we're on that subject, how much money has Manalapan actually paid to all lawyers - including the lawyer for Andy Boy?????

Of course, what was once said by former Manalapan Township attorney Carolina MachoGrande is now even more important, because she said during a township committee meeting that there was only ONE Dream Team attorney working on da case - da one who allegedly isn't anymore. That statement of MachoGrande also directly conflicts with da famous "Rosman Editorial," where his investigative report shows as many as 4 Dream Team lawyers on da Manalapan taxpayer payroll!

And, adding Alleged Manalapan/and or Freehold resident and alleged Republican/and or Democrat Andy Boy's lawyer at TAXPAYER EXPENSE - that makes 5 attorneys who are/or have fed at da Queen & Commissar-ordered taxpayer-funded trough!

Then, you have da super-secret Inquisition of highly decorated Manalapan Police Chief Brown, at da hands of Queen Torquemada and her court. What is Police Chief Brown being grilled about at TAXPAYER EXPENSE by da 12th District Assemblywoman wanna-be Queen?

Was it because of the 2 times Verizon shut down phone service to the Manalapan Police Department last year that da Chief had every right to be irate about because of da extreme safety of da residents issue?

We may never know - because a gag order has been placed on da proceedings! Does something smell fishy?

When Committeewoman Cohen, maybe da most honest and taxpayer-fair member of da committee, who is being kept silent by da gag order tells da Asbury Park Press newspaper, "As soon as I can say something - I WILL SAY SOMETHING ABOUT IT." That speaks volumes right there.

You also have millions of $$$$$$$ spent on what has become known as da field of nightmares, a synthetic turf field that New York City, Connecticut, and other towns & states have banned because of health concerns. Sure, it expands da already large Manalapan Recreation Complex. However, da ultra-high cost and da bonding there of will cost Manalapan taxpayers for years to come.

You also have da Tillis tract that Manalapan TAXPAYERS PAID DOUBLE DA GOING RATE FOR. You know, da same one that da Commissar wants to be sure is ARSENIC-FREE! So what if nearly half da land is unusable? So what if even da Commissar wants to make sure there's no contamination on da site? It's only TAXPAYER MONEY.

Then, you have da next on da long list of Manalapan Township Committee lawsuits in da making - da Gentile property. His property was "downzoned," something supported by da Queen. Meanwhile, da very same Queen allowed Hovnanian to build a small city a bike ride away on Woodward Road. That lawsuit should be a doozie.

DaTruth is, filing a lawsuit just for da sake of filing one is not da best way to spend taxpayer money. Take for example, here's exactly what da Manalapan Township Committee has told everyone about these lawsuits:

How much has da Mosked Man lawsuit cost Manalapan Taxpayers? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

How much did da First Amendment erasure lawsuit case against daTruthSquad cost Manalapan Taxpayers? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

Did da lead attorney of da Mosked Man case resign? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

Why did Queen Torquemada inquisition Police Chief Brown? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

What was da real reason behind da ouster of Rec head honcho Collincini? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

Why did no mayor of da Manalapan Township Committee for da last 3 years (da Queen - Andy Boy - da Commisdsar) - unlike other municipalities, speak up about da bogus-degree-gate of Mr-Dr-Lord Wasser, and da support he received from Pat "Whatever you say Mr-Dr-Lord Wasser" Horvath? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

Why was da legal malpractice lawsuit against current Assemblywoman and former Manalapan Township Attorney Carolina MachoGrande kept secret - only to be discovered by daTruthSquad? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

What was da real situation behind da husband of da Queen saying "BECAUSE I HATE ITALIANS," something they tried in vain to hide, except daTruthSquad blogged about it enough that hordes of newspapers, radio, and TV folks ascended on Manalapan like da plague? Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer.

DaTruth is, there's apparently a lot of things Da Queen, Andy Boy & da Commissar refuse to answer! Ironically, da Queen and da Commissar are both running for elected office this year. Maybe at each and every meeting they should be asked these questions and others, so their silence can be placed on da public record for all to hear!

You, da citizens, have a right to know what your elected officials are doing. Demand answers to your questions, and don't stop asking - because YOUR silence is what some politicians want - so they can cover THEIR silence.

Because - da big problem remains - da politicians file lawsuits to go after those they don't like - or da critics they want to silence -- AND THEY'RE USING TAXPAYER MONEY TO DO IT!

And that's daTruth.

I'm surprised Kathy Barata hasn't written about this yet -- NOT!

I'd also love to know how much these lawsuits have really cost is all.

at last check, the Township has spent over $30,000 just in legal expenses for this $10k cleanup. That includes 10k just for the attorney representing Lucas. By the way, spending taxpayer's money in defense of Lucas IS A VIOLATION OF LAW. Go to this site, http://www.ecode360.com/?custId=MA0726 where you can find the Township's ordinances. Look for Section 9.4 which says:


Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in §§ 9-1 and 9-2 hereinabove, the Township shall not be responsible for indemnification under the following conditions:
A. The judgment or settlement of the civil cause of action relates to a claim based upon willful fraud, malice or misconduct.

The claim against Lucas is for willful malice and misconduct. That means when this case is all over, there will undoubtedly be at least one taxpayer suit demanding that Lucas repay the attorneys fees, or, in the least, that the township committee people who approved those fees illegally be forced to reimburse the township.

Another astounding surprise. The Fraud Squad starts off with a paragraph about stu moskovitz. What is this, all stu all the time? All the stu that is fit to print? Odd isn't it that the Fraud Squad will mention everone's name except stu moskovitz.

By the way stu's name is not capitalized on purpose. That would signify that he was a human being.

That's real mature, Larry. Now you know why everyone calls you a worm. Did you really think that was clever or added anything to the discussion? If you did, well, more's the pity.

Anonymous said...

To the person who said Manalapan has already spent $30,000 on lawyers for the Moskovitz case -

How do you know that for certain? I've read on this blog that figure might be higher, and the mayor at a past committee meeting said the lawyer works on a contintentcy fee so they aren't getting paid. I don't doubt you, but I'd like to know.

Also, since you seem like you know something about these things, why would the town even bring the case? If they did this to score political points, wouldn't they be violating some kind of law?

This is the reason I read this blog. Even with the name calling, there's more real and usually accurate information about Manalapan here than in any newspaper.

Lucas' attorney was paid by the township 10k. Renaud, the so-called expert, was paid 10k. The "contingent fee" lawyer was already paid 500 for "disbursements." Casagrande billed somewhere between 5,000 and 10000 on estimate, because she refused to itemize her bills. (She is no longer practicing law). Kennedy charged several thousand dollars. McCarthy billed 9600 but hasn't been paid yet. All of this is a matter of public record and is available by OPRA request. It's not "embedded sources" or hidden information. It's all public and is exactly what the editor of the News Transcript used when he pointed much of this out. When Klauber said publicly we had only spent 6,000, the township had already paid 15,000 and had bills for another 10000. In other words, he simply lied. Larry, don't bother responding with one of your gutter "prove it" remarks. It's available to ANYONE at town hall with an OPRA request.

None of this would have happened if Stu moved in to say, Alabama, rather than New Jersey and never met the talking monkey who polutes this blog.

"Larry, don't bother responding with one of your gutter "prove it" remarks. It's available to ANYONE at town hall with an OPRA request."

Don't you just love how this talking monkey accuses an elected official of lying, then tells others not to refute it?

What a jerk.

Anonymous said...

Larry, you didn't listen. The point the poster was making was that it's all public record, which it is. The point the poster was making was that while Klauber and Roth are lying to the public, it is very easy for ANYONE to prove they're lying. But you, Larry, have to call that poster a "talking monkey." That language is not surprising. You and your wife have a long, long history of being racists and "talking monkey" is a classic racist description.

If the Roths had moved to Alabama instead of New Jersey, our taxes would be half of what they are now, and the township would have a surplus.

and if Kathy Baratta had moved to Alabama instead of New Jersey, the different blogsites in this town would contain intelligent conversations instead of the gutter nonsense we are all subjected to.

and if Steve McEnery had moved to Alabama, Republicans would still control the County and they would also be in control of the township committee.

Only Larry Roth would blame the victim instead of the perpetrator. Typical. Larry thinks that if the Jews didn't live in Europe where they didn't belong, the Holocaust would never have happened. And if they didn't live in Israel, there'd be Mid-East peace. Gee, Larry, can you get any lower?

I don't think it's possible to get any lower or disgusting then you, the talking monkey, aka, the lackey.

Of course it is. Just look at Larry and Kathy you racist pig. By the way, you can COUNT on the republican literature printing some of Michelle Roth's press releases. We've obtained them from your clients, you know. This is going to be LOTS of fun.

The only fun that's going to be had, is when you get your a$$ kicked because REPUBLICANS are sick to the core over the vile crap you write on a daily basis, you evil creature.

After that, US fed up Republicans will be told who you are. Then the real fun starts.

This is an excerpt from a nationwide website, www.Italystl.com. The entire world knows about Michelle. Is this someone you would be proud to say reprsents you in the 12th district? Here it is:

Our Congratulations to Steven Cataneo, President of Italian-American Association of Monmouth County, and those who supported him, and the Monmouth County Italian American Community in his campaign for a satisfactory solution to the incredibly inappropriate, and supposedly sarcastic "I hate Italian Americans" comment of the husband of Deputy Mayor Michelle Roth of Manalapan,NJ.

Mrs Roth, after a month of "stonewalling", and incredulously continuing to refuse to "apologize" for her husband's "hate" speech, allowed a matter that could have been handled quickly and properly, to blossom into a full fledged imbroglio, that resulted in a variety of people accusing each other of evil motives, and attacking one anothers character.


Credit also goes out to Committeeman Anthony Gennaro who resigned from the Democratic party, when some leaders defended Michelle Roth, and kudos to the Italian American community that construed Michelle Roth's silence in the face of her husband's remarks, as condoning them, in view of her not IMMEDIATELY apologizing for them, and disassociating herself from them.



Now you know. The Democrats, including Vic Scudiery, should be ashamed of themselves, and her running mate deserves to lost big time for tolerating her racism for political gain. In November, we'll be there, believe me. Her running mate will be finished politically in Monmouth County for sanctioning this racist.

The Italian American community in Monmouth County is setting up a campaign fund to take contributions to defeat Michelle Roth. We are going to make sure every Italian family in the twelfth district knows about the "I hate Italians" incident. We are going to make sure every minority family in Freehold Boro, Mercer County and other appropriate locations in the twelfth district know about her blood money on the backs and sweat of Africans exploited by her clients. This is a vicious, ugly woman. We will not allow her or anyone who condones her behavior by running with her to occupy a seat in our state government.

^ Lies written by a liar. What's the name of the campaign fund and where can people send donations?

You are a DISGRACE to the Republican party and your reign of viciousness will be ending soon.

Anonymous said...

What makes you think that it is a Republican behind the Italian American Fund? Are there not Democrats and Independents as well as Republicans who are of Itlaian decent that are outraged over Larry Roth's infamous mantra "I hate Italians"?! We did not forget that Michelle Roth "stone walled " the issue for nearly a month. That Michelle Roth blamed Tony Gennaro for not defending her agianst what her husband Larry said. When did Micheel Roth become Tony Gennaro's responsibility to defend? Roth is a woman who professes to be her own "woman" and needs no one to talk for her suddenly needed Gennaro to defend her? Why because he is an Italian? The Italian Americans are united in support to rid the 12th District in Monmouth County of Michelle Roth as an assembly candidate. The Italian Americans of the 12th are are only to happy to donate when asked. You obviously are not of Italian American decent, if so you would know how and where to donate. I wonder how John Amberg with his Italian American roots feels about his running mate Michelle Roth. I bet he did ask her about this and she did what she does to everyone she sold him a pile of bullsh8t to make her look like the victim. Roth is not the victim, we are and she is the culprit.

Bennet arrested again

In October 2007, my wife and I witnessed a horrible motorcycle accident caused by Scott Bennet of Freehold. He was eluding Manalapan police when he ran through a stop sign on Rt. 537. He also seriously injured the rider on the back on the bike. Bennet has was released on bail. Since his release he has been arrested on numerous occassions. This is his latest.

It was a horrible day that October. One I will never forget. Had the system worked, this monster would have been in jail and Tim would still be alive. You see, Bennet was out on bail at the time.
