For the poster above that wants to say this is just election year mud slinging do your own investigation instead of reading the talking points. That eye doctor Uncle Bob was hanging out with is a bad dude and he bought access all the way up to President Clinton. Say all you want about a hung jury in his criminal trial (let that sink in – his criminal trial) but is that what you want as your senator “indicted but only almost convicted?” And let’s not forget that the biggest ol’ Boys club in the history of western civilization actually censured one of their own in a bi-partisan basis when they found his behavior indefensible. Let that sink in too: a whole bunch of democrat senators said “Bob, tone it down, you’re making us look bad and now we have no choice but to do something about it.” Vote for whoever you want but at least be honest with yourself that you’re voting for a party not a good person.

Jersey City NJ, Carmine Disbrow the president of a Jersey City police union that is in a contract dispute with Democrat Mayor Steve Fulop’s administration is calling on the mayor to release a recording of the mayor’s top staffers allegedly discussing their efforts to rig a bid in 2014. According to depositions filed as part of a discrimination lawsuit, two Jersey City employees claimed that in 2014, three top Fulop administration officials tried to influence a public bidding process for an energy consultant in favor of a company.
Jersey City POBA Statement On Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop:
September 28, 2017
Carmine Disbrow, President, JC POBA:
Mayor Fulop has been quick to rush to judgement against the men and women of the Jersey City Police Department, yet when it comes to wrongdoing in his office he is silent. This again shows that in every instance he is willing to put his own politics ahead of moving Jersey City in the right direction.
To say that he passed the audio on to corporation counsel Jeremy Farrell, another political appointee, is nothing more than attempting to sweep things under the rug, and an insult to us all. The question remains what steps did Mayor Fulop take to root out what appears to be corruption that was happening right under his nose.
The Jersey City POBA is standing alongside so many other residents and community groups to demand that he release the tapes and come clean about what he knows about his appointees steering taxpayer funded contracts to politically connected vendors.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff discussed her friendliness with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in March 2015, just a few months before the FBI opened a criminal investigation into Clinton’s private email use.
The conversation, which was included among the roughly 9,000 emails stolen from the inbox of campaign chair John Podesta that have been published by WikiLeaks, involved a debate over whether Clinton should issue a statement in favor of Lynch’s confirmation as attorney general. The process had been held up thanks to a legislative battle over provisions in a human-trafficking bill.
