Ridgewood Board Of Education Candidate Claims “Fake Facebook Profiles” Being Used to Attack Him

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Board of Education candidate Dan Creed claims someone using “fake Facebook profiles ” has been attacking him and Board candidate Muhammad Mahmoud . Creed immediately called for you guessed it, “civility” .

Dan Creed  posted on Facebook ,”I spent most of the day yesterday calling anybody I could think of to see if they knew her or had heard of her- nothing.
I sent several messages to her through Messenger- nothing. Public records- nothing. Tax Records- nothing. I asked one of the administrators of this site who was posting with her if she knew her- she did not.
Everyone will have to decide for themselves, but one thing I do know is that if true, this stuff does not belong in our town.”

Another poster ,Anne Goebel-Krstelj commented .” No horse in the race either, to borrow Laura’s expression but plenty of alternate explanations for the above observations. I choose not to spend time posting pics on Facebook and so you won’t see much activity or even a profile picture for me. When we moved here, home purchase was fully completed by me including mortgage and related records. Until we took advantage of a great refinancing option some years ago, my husband’s name would never have shown up in RW tax rolls and house was in my name only – even though he was a resident. People who routinely participate in Buy Nothing / freecycle / recycle Facebook groups know that Messenger can be problematic if you don’t regularly communicate with someone – it is quite routine that one cannot see messages from someone they are not friends with. Fake profiles would be nasty thing to do so sure hope that’s not it. Were you actually conducting a paid search of records?”

Humm…………………….so a couple of observations , first its easy to create a fake Facebook profile ,Facebook critics often refer to Facebook as Fakebook , not really sure in this case what would be the upside ? Ridgewood is a bit clique-ie making this hard to pull off with any credibility .

The second and more sinister view alleges that coming from a group of people who call everyone a racist who attempt to debate them, use words like “civility” to silence dissent and have threatened to “silence ” people (whatever that means) for voicing opinions, some readers have suggested its a put up job by desperate candidates looking to gain sympathy ,cast dispersion’s on their rivals and grab power . In time we are sure the truth will be told .

  1. Dan Creed is clinically insane. For Gods sake do not elect a moron who spends countless hours chasing down a Facebook phantom. Move on Dan

  2. Many people choose not to use their real names on Facebook, but are real people. And why does Dan Creed need to know the name and address of someone who doesn’t like him? Does he plan to throw eggs and/or retaliate in some other fashion? Quite scary to learn that he’s intent on tracking this person down.

  3. What was the attack? Screenshots of Dan creed complaining about teachers?
    How is reminding someone of his previous Facebook posts an “attack”?
    He was caught and now he’s trying to deflect.

  4. Dan Creed is camp aronsohn. He supported high density housing. Go search for his posts from 2015.

  5. Dan Creed is Jeff Voigt part II. Insanely driven to seek revenge. Do not vote for this man.

  7. Oh Dan, what are you made of? Accusing, attacking, and publicly shaming residents. Claiming residents are lying, when the proof is posted, and calling them fake. All because you got caught with your pants down in public, not exactly elected official material.

  11. Seems very concerning the dani / lembo / Steve kim crew is clearly using fake profiles to astroturf support. The silence after this revelation was deafening. Bad enough a candidate controls speech in a public forum, but this is even worse. Outrageous from the so called ethical ticket. Ridgewood deserves better

  12. It’s quite curious to me that Mr. Dani and Mrs. Kim have yet to comment on the matter. If not involved, should be easy to denounce this kind of behavior, no?

  13. Agree Christian. Seems odd they can spend all this money playing pretend politician like children, but can’t be bothered to denounce unethical behavior. Almost seems like they’re trying to obscure, deflect and excuse

  14. Didn’t Dan want to beat up Steve Kim in the library parking lot when Steve asked questions about the circular staircase? Something like that during the library hearings. . He’s one of the rudest guys I have seen on social media and now he’s complaining? I don’t like the teachers contract but his comments about the teachers have been really below the belt, too.

  15. So weird, there used to be a comment from demosthenes on here, but now it’s deleted and says i’m logged in as james. Guess he messed up the controls and left it logged in when he was censoring anti- dani speech on here.

    Or covering up his involvement in the fake profile??? Why delete the comment james??

  16. If a post shows up about a bicycle path, the entire Dani Clan responds en masse within an hour. A fake profile gets involved in attacking their opponent, they step out to lunch for a whole weekend. The more minutes that tick by, the worse this looks…

  17. Why does James censor speech on this website? Is this part of his Free Market Laissez-faire Point of View to Local Issues?

  18. Sunshine, AKA Douchebag Voigt – stay under the rock where you belong. You are really something. You and Dan Creed are two desperate people.

  19. Dan Creed is desperate and downright frightening. So someone has a facebook name that is not their real name. There are a ton of people who do this. Yep, right here in little old Ridgewood. They use different names for various reasons. That does not mean they are FAKE people for God’s sake. Creed is putting so much effort into this witch hunt against someone who does exist but does not use her given name, it is frightening. What is Creed going to do if he finds out her true identity and address – go to her house? Seriously Creed, if you cannot take it when someone criticizes you, then you do not belong in a campaign. You are a pathetic candidate. You have probably lost what few votes you might have had at this point.

  20. My friend uses a fake name on facebook in order to avoid her abusive ex boyfriend. Is Dan Creed going to seek her out and expose her identity? Good lord this guy is nuts. NO CREED

  21. Dan creed posts on FB:

    “Fake profiles should have no place in Ridgewood elections.
    Who really is Christina Abadi?”

    Well as far as I know, Mr. Dan Creed, Christina Abadi is not involved with the elections, she is not running for office, and is really not part of the elections. You, on the other hand, seem to think you are the Facebook TSAR of Riddgewood and by GOD you are going to root out any person who dares to use a name other than that on their tax records. Overreact much?????

  22. So funny that this crew that has steam come out of their ears all day every day BEGGED Dan Creed to run in the past. World class complainers. I hope you find your peace.

  23. DAN CREED: “I am equally disappointed that those who are normally the most vocal on anything remotely out of sort have gone uncharacteristically quiet- including the administrators of this site, one of which was an active participant in the post.”

    It was a beautiful weekend! Unlike the hate mongers, most people were out enjoying the great weather. Get a life, put your ego and bitterness to rest!

  24. Dan Creed and friends,
    “gone uncharacteristically quiet- including the administrators of this site, one of which was an active participant in the post.”

    The sane and intelligent realized you are a waste of time and refuse to feed you trolls.

  25. Can you say “DEFLECT?” Fake account or not, Dan Creed is 100% guilty of insulting and going against Ridgewood educators and the REA. The person posted actual screen shots of his written tirade and tantrums.

  26. Automatic defense mechanism for a narcissist, blame-shifting after exposure, hoping to turn people against an unrelated target. Dan Creed doesn’t see how ridiculous he appears. Instead of correcting his behavior, he puts more energy into defending it.  #ignoretheego

  27. This made me go onto Facebook to read the absurdity for myself. WOW, Dan is obsessed about this and hasn’t stopped posting. It’s like watching a train wreck!

  28. Throw accusations to avoid taking responsibility.

  29. This is the same Dan Creed that is pro turf field and told residents to pound salt unless they had facts and proof.

    “… we need to deal in facts, I have yet to see any real evidence of health issues with turf fields. My two boys have and still do spend a ton of time on turf fields. If there is real government backed research, we need to look at it. If putting coconut fiber helps people feel better (I relent), so be it. What we have to be careful about is making health claims that aren’t backed by a plethora of fact.”

  30. Dan, who begged you to run in the past?

  31. Dane Creed sounded like a solid guy for the position until I saw his posts about a phantom account that was about to ruin stellar reputation. He either is a thin skinned guy or plainly making things up to help his cause. Deflection tactics like this are well known in politics. Neither is good for me. So long Creed.

  32. No one begged Dan Creed to run. And no one will vote for him

  33. So a fake FB poster Christina Abadi is harassing one of our candidates for the BOE?

    What is the agenda behind these posts using a fake profile?

    Perhaps it’s the Dani Kwak Lembo ticket trying to sow misinformation?

    Those are the right questions to ask James. Why aren’t you asking them?
