More Bridgegate-Style Politics in New Jersey?

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

Another North Jersey mayor is claiming he's receiving political retribution from Trenton.

Jersey City's pension system could save millions of dollars — if New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney allows legislators to vote on a bill reforming it. The bipartisan bill already passed unanimously in the state assembly. But so far, with two days left in the legislative session, there's been no vote.

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop says his situation seems familiar. He thinks it's similar to the one affecting Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich after the mayor supposedly displeased Gov. Chris Christie. Christie appointees allegedly created traffic jams from Fort Lee to the bridge after the mayor there didn't support the governor's re-election.

"One can seem to connect one to another because of this culture of retribution," Fulop said Tuesday from his office in Jersey City's City Hall.

Fulop suspects Sweeney, a Democrat and Christie ally, could be punishing him. One possible reason? Fulop and Sweeney are both considered Democratic gubernatorial candidates in 2017.

And then there's this: After Fulop told Christie aides last year that he wouldn't join other Democrats and endorse the Republican governor for re-election, administration officials cancelled several meetings with Fulop. 

Spokesmen for Sweeney and Christie didn’t return messages for comment.

This same type of Bridgegatesque crime, corruption, cover-up & retaliation is standard operating procedure at the Port Authority Bus Terminal's Lost & Found Dept. in NYC concerning lost & found property brazenly stolen by Port Authority Supervisors. Google  “Donna Lebourne abc news" & see the vile face of shame being confronted & exposed for the world to see.

Port Authority Supervisor Donna Lebourne also has an outside job, she is the Vice President of her & her husband’s charity Caribbean Sports International that donates cellphones & other electronics.  If you lost an item at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and did not get it back, contact her charity, perhaps she may donate your item back to you out of the kindness of her cold evil heart. It's very easy to be charitable when you are giving away someone else’s property.

Also, the Port Authority of NY & NJ has become a threat to national security and has placed everyone's safety & security in jeopardy, by employing an illegal policy of disposing lost valid passports in the garbage that are found in the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Now just imagine the damage that a terrorist cell could do with those valid lost passports or an identity theft ring. Google "Port Authority - Passports."

If the Port Authority will not prosecute and punish their own supervisors for theft, especially when they are caught redhanded, how much confidence do you have in their ability to actually put a stop to their illegal passport policy or any other crimes they uncover? The Port Authority's inaction and cover-up is tantamount to treason. Google “found, stolen, trashed by PA.”

The culture of fear is alive and well at the Port, because crime, corruption, cover-ups & retaliation is the Port Authority way. Believe me, I know firsthand and I have the evidence to prove it. General Manager of the George Washington Bridge Robert Durando’s testimony at the New Jersey State Assembly Transportation Committee on 12/9/13 exposes the culture of fear that exists at the Port Authority, he is fully aware of what happens to whistleblowers at the Port. Sadly, Durando and his boss Cedrick Fulton decided to put tens of thousands of lives in jeopardy just to save their own jobs. They are cowards...highly paid puppets of the Port Authority.

Intentionally gridlocking traffic on 9/11 for the sake of a "traffic study," a day that terrorist use to cause mayhem is absolute insanity.

It’s time to stop the madness!
