Fourth Ward Fraud

Head of Zimmer PAC moves out of 4th ward but votes there anyway!

When Andrew “Drew” Moss showed up at the polling place for the 4th ward, 2nd district, a challenger for Councilman Tim Occhipinti was ready for him. Despite proof that Moss moved from 506 Observer Highway in the fourth ward up to 2 14th Street in the second ward he was allowed to vote by the allies of Mayor Dawn Zimmer who were assigned to the polling place by Democratic Chairman Ravi Bhalla.

Moss has been the Treasurer of Zimmer’s Council and Mayoral campaign efforts, and has recently drawn fire as the Chairman of the new Move Hoboken Ahead PAC that is accused of illegally coordinating with candidates in violation of New Jersey State Law. The Occhipinti campaign was made aware Moss and his wife had moved out of the Fourth Ward via official federal notification by the US Postal Service. When Moss arrived to vote in the ward he moved out of he was challenged by an Occhipinti campaign volunteer. Despite showing the proof of Moss’s move out of the ward to official poll worker Gary Holtzman, Moss was allowed to vote on the machines anyway!

Moss is just the tip of the iceberg

Moss is just one of dozens of potentially ineligible voters allowed to vote for Zimmer’s council candidates by campaign operatives placed at the poll desks by Bhalla. Several other challenges on grounds the voters no longer lived at the addresses they had claimed were rejected by Holtzman and fellow poll worker Lynda Walker, who is a longtime friend and political ally of Former Councilman Michael Lenz. Despite grounds for at least forcing the disputed voter to fill out a provisional paper ballot that includes a sworn statement and a Judge’s ruling before the vote is counted, Holtzman has overruled the challengers – and their proof – and allowed voters who no longer live in the ward to vote secretly on the machines. This makes disqualifying their vote extremely difficult, if not impossible.

Holtzman is the husband of Zimmer’s Zoning Officer

Holtzman’s wife Ann is a patronage hire of Mayor Zimmer who was lured away from a job with Councilwoman Beth Mason to become the city’s Acting Zoning Officer.

Both Holtzmans can be seen in many photos on the campaign websites and Facebook pages celebrating the campaigns of Zimmer’s council candidates.

There is a clear conflict of interest in allowing Holtzman to have a role in deciding which vote gets to vote and which doesn’t.

Many other examples reported at the polls today

Drew Moss is not the only ex-4th ward vote voting today in their old ward. His wife Lianna was also allowed to vote, along with many others whose residency is in question based on the judgement of the USPS.

Zimmer calls it Change That’s Working. Others see it as the “Same Old Cheating,” and is happening all over Hoboken today.

Honest question here because I appear to be in the same boat as this Moss guy. I recently moved from the 6th ward to the 1st and received my new voter registration card in the mail. I signed it and returned it but not within the 10 days prior to the election. So technically I live in the 1st ward but my name is on the rolls in the 6th. Would I not be able to vote at all in the election even though I’m still a resident of Hoboken?

@411 – What’s the date on the form you posted?

I walked past 506 Observer last night and saw there is a For Sale sign there. There is also a listing here:

hobokenhomes.com/hobokenhomes/listi...es_display.asp?varSaleListingID=265

This seems to indicate that Moss still owns there. As long as he doesn’t vote in BOTH districts what’s the problem?[quote comment=”206897″]Honest question here because I appear to be in the same boat as this Moss guy.

@xtreme, of course you have a right to vote in Hoboken under your circumstances. The answer to your question is you should have gone to your new polling place and voted provisionally. This way you get to explain why you’re voting there, and a judge will sort it out. This is what provisional ballots are for. It looks like they should have been used in the Moss case as well. The irony is the votes from him and his wife would have been more helpful to Zimmer uptown where the live than in the 4th where Pinchevsky was soundly trounced.[quote comment=”206897″]Honest question here because I appear to be in the same boat as this Moss guy.

Isn’t Occipinti under investigation for voter fraud from the last election? Or is it for taking $$ from Mason over what is allowed…

No, he’s not and no, she didn’t. The election is over. Rami lost big despite trying to sell these lies in his attack pieces on Councilman Tim Occhipinti, who trounced his opponent in another huge victory. Enough with the lies already. They didn’t work.

A google search shows numerous references to 3547 including the one below (from a government source)

https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0502306010

The PS-3547 (Change of Address) is a third party report of address change.

So basically its used by publishers not by customers….hence it not being findable on the general usps site.

and here is a usps letter citing its use

Very strange. I went to the USPS website and did a search for Form 3547. I can’t find any link to it. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist – just that so far I haven’t been able to verify it except in reference to a spreadsheet discussing financials from FY2005.

When exactly did the opposition to Moss get that form, and how, and what is it for?
