Now, Curley might not make it onto the ballot as an Independent candidate because the petitions he filed with the Monmouth County Clerk on Tuesday are defective.
A review of the 398 signatures Curley filed indicates that only 165 of them are valid. Only 100 valid signatures are required to get the misogynist, homophobe, anti-Italian bigot on the ballot, so his candidacy might be safe. However, of the 165, there are apparent duplicates within Curley’s paperwork that are still being researched. A review of Democrat candidate Amber Gesslein’s petitions and Republican Sue Kiley’s petitions for additional disqualifying duplicates is ongoing.
Golden: Curley is tone deaf, disgraceful and puts himself first
Disgraced Freeholder John Curley was Censured and Reprimanded for sexual harassment.
Disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley filed to run for reelection as an Independent candidate this afternoon. NewJerseyGlobe was the first to report his candidacy and said he submitted over 400 signatures. In a press release, Curley said he would run under the banner, “Fighting Corruption Together.”
Curley compared himself to former Freeholders Ted Narozanick and Barbara McMorrow. “This Freeholders (sic) seat has a rich, bipartisan history of individuals that put people first, from Ted Narozanick to Barbara McMorrow, and people recognize that I am continuing their tradition. I look forward to serving the residents of Monmouth County for another three years,” he said in his release.
Monmouth County Republican Chairman, Sheriff Shaun Golden issued the following statement upon learning of Curley’s candidacy:
David F. Hohsfield, 62, of Manchester Township, is accused of making sexually explicit and vulgar comments within earshot of pre-teen girls in Howell retail stores last week while pretending to be talking on his cell phone.
John P. Curley, 65, of Middletown Township, is accused of making sexually explicit and vulgar comments to minors while pretending to be a role model.
The report prepared by retired Acting Supreme Court Justice Mary Catherine Cuff states that disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley referred to Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso as a “Staten Island Guinea,” according to the transcript of federal court proceedings Curley has brought against Monmouth County. DiMaso was a Monmouth County Freeholder at the time that Curley said “that Staten Island guinea” and “I ought to stab her with my insulin pack.”
Staten Island is the New York City borough where DiMaso was raised. “Guinea” is a derisive ethnic slur that refers to people of Italian heritage. The slur is derived from “Guinea Negro” a term that referenced Blacks or people of mixed ancestry from Guinea, the African country in West Africa. The term is “the most vile” one can call an Italian, according to Urban Dictionary, and is used as a slur for Italians because of many of them have darker skin than Anglo Saxons/Germans, according to the Racial Slur Database.Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Birthday to disgraced Freeholder John P. Curley.
Now that he is 65 and eligible for Medicare, hopefully Curley will give the Monmouth County property taxpayers a break and get off the County’s self insured employee heath benefits program.
In his law suit against this fellow freeholders and all of the people of Monmouth County, Curley claims he is not an employee. Yet, when it comes to getting health care, Curley claimed he was an employee of the County and not of his brother’s car dealership (which pays property taxes in Ocean County).
