Manalapan Democrats Fire da First Salvo in Da Election of 2010

You knew that da Manalapan Democrats had something up their sleeve. Now we know what it is. Tactic #1 - Show GOP'ers break da rules! Or, "Find Da Oldest Dirt You Can Find!"

Even though they won da election of 2006, da Manalapan Democratic leadership led by da Capo di Tutti Capi, da Boss of all Bosses Gerry "One Bourbon, One Shot & One Beer" Ward hasn't forgotten alleged improprieties they believe were allegedly orchestrated during da election by Manalapan GOP'ers and their then-candidate Little Nikki.

Now, nearly 4 years later, da Capo has fired da first shot.

Da Manalapan Democrats have filed a complaint with ELEC, saying da Manalapan GOP'ers broke da election rules on more than one front. Da Asbury Park Press, not da local Snoozepaper, got da news.

Da newspaper says that:

http://www.app.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2010100907058

ISSUE 1: "Among the charges are that Pezzullo failed to report a $500 contribution made in September 2006 from the law offices of Cleary, Alfieri, Jones & Hoyle, now Cleary, Alfieri and Jones of Matawan. The firm's partners include politically connected attorneys Salvatore Alfieri, a former Marlboro Republican County Committee Chairman, and James Cleary, a former attorney for Monmouth County and the Western Monmouth Utilities Authority."

ISSUE 2: "Pezzullo never reported the address or reason a check for $1,708 from her general election campaign account was made out to Martin Mabe of Manalapan" who was her alleged campaign manager.

However, this may not be all. DaTruthSquad has heard from an embedded source within da Cadre that da Manalapan Democrats also questioned who paid for a plane that had a banner attached to it on election day. They were also not impressed with some responses that Little Nikki gave on some of their questions, and possibly unanswered questions.

Here's what daTruthSquad knows:

1. There are open questions as to who was da actual treasurer of da Little Nikki campaign. It could be possible that Little Nikki may not have known who was doing what behind da scenes. Regardless, as da "name" on da candidate form, that should not excuse her from not knowing.

2. There are also open questions as to who was da actual campaign manager. Da name listed on forms that daTruthSquad saw through da complaint was Martin Mabe. However, was he really in charge of da campaign? There are some who believe that he may have been da "MINO" - "manager in name only." That is a question nobody really knows da answer to, but it appears da Capo may try to use this in some way.


3. Why bring da complaint now - 4 years later when many people wouldn't know who or what a "Nikki Pezzullo" is?

DaTruth to Question 3 is simple. During 2007, 2008 and 2009, da theory that there was an unwritten alliance becomes more clear. Why pick a fight with da guy who brought da pizza to da pizza and beer party? Da losers of those election years had about as much of a chance of winning as a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest. However, since da Manalapan Democrats were butt-kicked out of da alliance by Team Andy Boy and his handlers, da gloves are off and now, we see three plus years after da fact, da dust was blown off this complaint and now it becomes news in da newspaper - and here on daTruthSquad - which it seems is what da Cadre really wants.

Next question - will this matter?

DaTruth is, by itself, this news is about important as finding out Governor Christie has a weight issue, or that New Jersey borders da Atlantic Ocean. However, when you have a Capo and a Queen who most likely feel betrayed by Team Andy Boy and his GOP handlers, and da Manalapan Democrats who were in alliance-mode selected two guys to run against Andy boy who we wouldn't know if we tripped over them, it means da Manalapan Democrats need to make a political case that da GOP'ers are just a bunch of good old boys who never met a rule they didn't break. It seems like their plan will begin here, with a candidate who ran during da middle of George Bush's second term.

Now, while da Little Nikki campaign appears at least for now to have nothing to do with Mayor Andy Boy, it appears that da Cadre plan here may be to tie in one of Mayor Andy Boy's handlers. A common link between da Little Nikki campaign and Mayor Andy Boy is da Manalapan GOP'er Grand Poobah, Steve "Iron Girth" McEnery. Even though Little Nikki, according to daTruthSquad sources has had nothing to do with da Manalapan GOP since after da election of 2006, Iron Girth is a link between both candidates whose both presence and girth cannot be ignored.

What will they dredge up next?

DaTruth here is, anyone who knows da Queen and da Capo well know they don't use a rest room without a plan. First, you had da silver haired guy with da silver shovel dig up startling news about Manalapan Township Committee GOP'er "Lyin" Ryan Green's missing information on his financial disclosure form. "Financial Disclosure-Gate" was a black eye to both Green and Andy Boy who supported him. If you're into betting, you'd have to wager that da Democrats will again send their shovel guy up with more questions to ask.

Why are they doing this?

DaTruth is, da Manalapan Democrats have no choice. They are facing a current two-time Republican mayor along with da darling of da Yorktowne Club with two Democrat guys that you wouldn't know if you were sitting on their laps at da Olde Silver Tavern. They are so unknown that someone in our forum recently nicknamed them "Beevis and Butthead." Nobody knows who they are, where they live, what they do. Whoever these "Unknown Candidates" are, they have to work 10 times harder because they have no name recognition, da Yorktowne Club is backing da GOP'ers, and da Capo and his leaders have an ax to grind against those who pulled da alliance rug out from under them. So, a negative campaign is coming soon to Manalapan.

DaTruth is, this was not unexpected. We saw this coming after da alliance fell to dust and left da Queen on da Manalapan Township Committee island by herself. Da busting up of da allliance made da Capo look like an amateur, and left da Queen without any defenses on da governing body. Now, da only thing they have before da Queen's election campaign next year is to damage any way they can da GOP'ers campaign this year - which apparently includes da perception campaign launched by da Manalapan Democrats that da Manalapan GOP'ers somehow are rulebreakers.

Unfortunately for da Manalapan Democrats, their plan for Kingdom domination starts with nearly 4 year old information that people most likely won't care about. Where will it go from here -- wait for da next Manalapan Township Committee meeting --- if that one isn't canceled too like last week's.

We'll know more during da open public sesson.

And that's daTruth.

Didn't McGirth run little Nikki's campaign?

I thought Moskovitz was in charge of running her campaign? He was the Republican's strategist in 2004 and 2005 wasn't he?

The Manalapan Mole said...

Yes, the Democrats plan is slowly coming together. Their war strategy is to take shots at the fringe players like Green and McEnery and find a weakness, and then exploit that weakness.

Yes, this won't end here. Look for the next smoking gun to come from none other than former mayor Spodak, who will dig up dirt on the Manalapan Republicans with his prized shovel.

The Manalapan Mole has spoken.

Are they serious? This garbage is 4 years old!!!!!

You'e right Squad. Obviously Ward and Roth never pursued this when they were buddy buddy with Lucas and McEnery sharing power. Isn't there some statute of limitations here? I'm surprised at the Democrats for this one. I expected better. What's next, finding fault with someone who was in office in 1959?

LOL. There go Curly Larry and Fred again. The three stooges are so obsessed with the guy who wrote Miracle's Law (draw your own conclusions as to why) that they want to claim he ran a campaign he was nowhere near. In 2006, he was nowhere to be found around Republican political circles. McEnery was afraid that Moskovitz would get credit for the victory, which McEnery felt threatened by, so he made sure that he controlled the campaign completely and that Moskovitz was nowhere near it. It's not going to take much of a search to connect McEnery to the faulty filings.

1959? Wasn't that when Spodak was Mayor?

I'm shocked that the Asbury Park Press for some insane reason actually believed this was some type of news item. This is 4 year old. I even forgot Nikki Pezzullo was even on the ballot. If this is all the Capo di Tutti Frutti has then the Democrats are really in deep doodoo.

And I'm really sure that the Roth campaigns never made even one mistake during their elections.

Bravo Bravo Bravo to Mayor Lucus for getting Waste Management to take the 50 gal containers.

Please please please get them to stop waking up the neighborhood by requiring they start pick ups after 8 AM. Their 1 man trucks are so noisy we may have to start a petition to ban them. The decibal levels have to be above the EPA levels. No more trucks that dump and drop from the top, require use of only garbage trucks they gently push the waste in like we used to have. Please Mayor Lucus they are destroying the quailty of life in Manalapan by having residents startled out of bed.

Thank you, Sleepless in Manalapan.

It's looking like Lucas for the win in November. If this is the Democrat's idea of strategy, you might as well put a fork in em, their done.

Re: 'the Roth campaigns never made even one mistake' said...

She doesn't have to. She makes hers loudly and in public from the podium at Township Committee meetings.

Anonymous said...

I think Lucas played Ward and Roth like idiots. They put up two spectacularly unqualified candidates against the two most popular members of the Yorktowne Club. Whoever called the Democratic so-called candidates Beevis and Butthead got it right. They have no chance of winning. And if Ward thinks a 4 year old ELEC report will help them then he may need psychiactric help because that won't get them even one vote.

Anonymous said...

At this point Lucas can move to Freehold and still win the election and become mayor again.

Wait, isn't that called history repeating itself?

Anonymous said...

Why don't they bring up how Andrew Lucas violated the ethics laws of NJ by voting on a resolution where he was the defendant in the lawsuit? Why not remind the voters how he violated a judge's order who prohibited him from having anything to do with the case, then he wrote the censure resolution of two committee persons because of how their actions affected the case?

Can you spell corruption?

So did Roth. And that was dismissed by sundry types as no big deal then.

Maybe if Christie's people were to look into this, it wouldn't get dismissed as easy?

I would be very curious to see if Michelle Roth or Klauber's campaign's ever violated ELEC rules. Any way to find this out?

Anonymous said...

Marty Mabe wss the manager "In name only" of Nikki's campaign. From what I heard it was McEnery who pushed Moskovitz out of the campaign and if he did that, then one would think he was pulling the strings.

If it is discovered that McEnery was really in charge when these possible alleged violations happened, then how can he remain as Municipal GOP Chairman for Manalapan?

Go educate yourself before you post. Read the complaint. Steve M is not named in it, nor was he the treasurer.

Why do you persist with anonymous character assassination?

How about you tell us your name so we can make stuff up about you.

Linden NJ checking in said...

I agree with the previous post as to who is/is not to blame. I'm not from Manalapan (avid reader from Linden) and I know that if something like what has been described here happened in my town, my local chairman (I'm a Democrat) would at the very least investigate this personally. Maybe that's the best way to handle this internally. I'm not going to say violating ELEC isn't bad, but it's not like losing $400 million in school funds.

If this is all the Democrats have on the Republicans in Manalapan, a 4 year old ELEC violation from a failed and poorly run campaign, then this years Democrats have no chance of winning. Maybe its time for Gerard Ward to step down as chairman. Could Spodak be a better leader of the Democrats?

DEAR SLEEPLESS IN MANALAPAN

The mayor has the power now to stop the pre noisy dawn pick ups by Waste Managaement. Just like you can't mow your lawn or cut down trees before 7 AM the loud trucks should fall under the same category. The mayor can order the highly paid township Police out to ticket these inconsiderate pieces of garbage who disrupt our peaceful sleep.

WASTE MANAGEMENT STOP WAKING UP MANALAPAN IN THE PRE DAWN HOURS, WE REFUSE TO BE TREATED LIKE TRASH!!!!

Why comment about anyone who does or does not go to church or synagoge. Have you no morality or shame? Get a life. Leave people's religions alone.

It should come as no surprise that Fred (mortyschwartz over at nj.com) was posting on Rosh Hashana morning. This man has no moral compass, no ethics, and has no compunction about constantly posting lies about the author of Miracle's Law, so why would you expect him to be in Temple?

if stool was the author of the unconstitutional law and charged to do it, i have 2 questions--

1. why isn't it called stoll's law?

2. when's he returning the fees he wrongfully charged?

No one knows and no one cares. I saw one of them who was shorter than my 12 year old. Beavis and Butthead fits them well.

Did you ever measure the noise levels? You think they are above the ordinace levels because your hears a tuned perfectly to determine noise levels. I bet not!

Get your head out of your ass. Andrew Lucas made this issue for his campaign. Look how Andrew got them to pick up the containers they were already picking up. My God what idiots you are to beleive this jerk.

btw squad...how about looking into why there aren't any African-American or Jewish members at the Yorktown club? I was told it is a civic minded organization. Are African Americans & Jews not civic minded?

Anonymous said...

could someone please show me one shred of evidence that the yourtowne club has ever rejected a black or jewish applicant?

and who says a private civic organization has an obligation to adopt aggressive diversity-oriented recruitment programs.

my guess is that there are some jews who live in yorktowne that have been members, but if the yorktowne club prays to jesus, let them and let the jews hang with whoever they like to hang with.

where i live, there are christians, jews, blacks and whites all around me, and we love and respect one another and are friends, both because of who we are and because we respect our differences and don't let them get in the way of anything.

So it is OK to keep Jewish Americans and African American out of the Yorktown club "Because they pray to Jesus?"

Who has to prove they denied anyone. They don't have black members is a fluke?

Why not ask the former mayor who took luggage and trips from a developer. Ask him what he thinks of this "No blacks allowed" policy!
