NJEA funding Dem related BoE slate through Giaimo’s Assembly account
When Democrat attorney Tom Giaimo lost to Amy Handlin and Serena DiMaso last year for State Assembly, he did not close his campaign account. Rather, he kept raising money, most of it from the NJEA’s political action committee and politically connected lawyers like himself. He used the cash to repay a loan to himself and to fund his Middletown Board of Education slate of Giaimo Fox and Wright. Giaimo’s Assembly account and the joint Middletown Board of Education account have the same Democrat treasurer.
HOWELL TOWNSHIP-Howell Township Democrats are sending mixed messages in the 2018 municipal election. At the local level, Democrats running for municipal council are running a fierce anti-Lakewood, anti-development campaign, blaming Republicans for approved housing, mandated by the State of New Jersey under the Council of Affordable Housing(COAH).
COAH is a mandate which sets a specific amount of affordable homes each town in New Jersey must build in order to become compliant. COAH is a doctrine championed by New Jersey Democrats who passed the legislation in 1985 and it was reinforced throughout the years by the liberal leaning New Jersey Supreme Court.
New Jersey’s new Vote by Mail law, signed by Gov. Murphy in August, has the potential to leave voters hanging on Election Night, not just in New Jersey, but across the country. Candidates and voters should be aware that the results on Election Night may be far from final.

Josh Welle answers a question at this Jackson ‘Town Hall’ in August with the assistance of a flash card
Josh Welle wanted to hit pay dirt with the technology company, Severn Pacific Inc, he started in the 2015. He told his supporters at a campaign rally in Neptune (advertised as a Town Hall) on Wednesday night that he planned to be CEO of the the next facebook when the launched the company.
But PAY DIRT, a weekly newsletter by the the Daily Beast’s Lachlan Markay, blasted Welle’s duplicity and incompetence to its readers on Thursday.
Josh Welle is in a tough spot politically. At worst, he misled congressional ethics officials about a business of his that just resolved a six-figure tax-delinquency bill. At best, he set up the firm lacking a basic understanding of how to manage it.
The Daily Beast is hardly an “ultra-right wing” publication like Welle called MMM. Prior to this story, the only thing the Daily Beast and MMM agreed on is that Oliva Nuzzi is a great writer.
