Thank you, Kim. Making statements like this prove to everyone's satisfaction that you are indeed a paid political operative. Everyone else is blogging in realtime. There are no plans to reveal "more about this in the next few weeks." But for paid political operatives, life is a never-ending campaign. You're stupid to reveal that you and the other ops are working on a "project" to further assassinate Ms Burrell's character in the hopes of mud-splashing KF in the process. But I guess you can't help yourself. Why don't you consider giving some of your free time to being a mother to your child?

ThisMeansWar- Hoboken teacher, and Hoboken Housing Authority member Ms. Judith Burrell's (a.k.a. TCH.HS.05) professional character doesn't need assassinating....it simply requires full exposure.

So I'll take that as a 'no' on focusing on motherhood for once. Not surprised. But what possible relevance does this have in Edgewater where you live? http://i46.tinypic.com/zvvgqq.jpg

ThisMeansWar- posting doctored graphics does not prove very much and it doesn't really divert attention away from the irresponsible, unprofessional, and unethical issues surrounding Ms. Burrell.

Prosbus and CG: 1. The graphics are not doctored. You know that. 2. What has Judith Burrell done. Please provide legal sources of the information which you have provided. Rumors (heard in closed board meeting, or expect to hear something next week, kicking up a dead thread) lead to either illegal acquisition of information, a known minority tactic, or just spreading rumors and lies, another known tactic. 3. What do you expect to get out of this? Even if Burrell steps down from the housing authority for whatever reason, Carmelo's buddy Branco will not be inserted, you will just get to feign righteous indignation when he gets passed over a third time.
