Dirty Doherty, Gopal Accuse Monmouth GOP and MoreMonmouthMusings of staging Belmar protest

Monmouth GOP: We’re not run by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz or Hillary Clinton

Doherty fundraiser 081016

Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal has a canny knack for getting otherwise good journalists to print stories based on his libelous allegations that have no basis in fact.

In 2013 Gopal issued a Friday evening press release accusing a Republican Red Bank Council candidate of having a warrant out for his arrest in Texas. MoreMonmouthMusings contacted Texas authorities to confirm the story and found that it was false.  But several respected publications ran with Gopal’s lie before retracting their story after MMM published the truth.

Frederick John LaVergne will challenge Congressman Tom MacArthur the November general election. Based on unofficial results, LaVergne was the choice of 62.7% of CD-3 Democrats with 32,493 votes to Keady’s 19,347 votes.

Vin Gopal and the Democrats’ plan for taking over Monmouth County

We’ve been reporting for years on how Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal has been raising special interest money in Trenton as well as from Hudson and Essex Counties so that he can take over our beautiful county, pave it over and award contracts and patronage jobs to his benefactors.  Fortunately, he’s had limited success.

Now, thanks to Hudson County View, we have the chairman on tape sharing the next step of his plan.  The money is not enough, he needs to bring voters into the county courtesy of the Hudson County boss, Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto.

A joke! Vin will likely protest. But is it?

Belmar, April 1- Mayor Matt Doherty will withdraw as a candidate for Monmouth County Freeholder and resign as mayor of the borough to become Deputy Mayor of Jersey City, according to a confidential memo obtained by MoreMonmouthMusings.

For years, Doherty has declined to run for Freeholder because, like his friend Governor Chris Christie, he prefers to be #1 rather than one of group. He agreed to Monmouth Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal’s plea that he run this year because he needs a quick exit from Belmar where he knows the gimmicks and tricks he has employed as mayor will blow up next year and cause massive tax hikes. Doherty calculated that this would be the year for him to win on a county level because Hillary Clinton, he thinks, do very well with Monmouth County voters and he will benefit from her pant suit tails.
