Another 4th Ward “incident”

10/16/2007 Update:

Zimmer had responded this morning:

“These charges are absolutely absurd. I was surprised and humored by this young man taking my photo as I walked my dog Julia, but after he kept running in front of me, even my dog got annoyed.

I just cannot believe Mr. Campos is so desperate to win this election that he would send an 18-year old to the Police station to file completely false charges. First Campos sends in the convicted felon Gerry McCann to harass and intimidate my supporters, and now this. His team spent all day Saturday trying to convince the Police to have me arrested for assault and robbery without any investigation whatsoever. In fact, so much pressure was put on the Police by the “powers that be” that they had to be told by the County Prosecutor’s Office that there was no case.

When this is all over, I think I might have to write a book. This is like being on a Gerry McCann/Chris Campos reality TV show, and they keep trying to kick me off the island. Watch for more action as Mr. McCann and Mr. Campos get more desperate with the fast-approaching Election Day on Nov. 6th.”

Dawn went on to reference a comment made on the Hoboken message boards the same evening from whom she believed was Gerry McCann. That post number has since been removed from board, but she said because it claimed her allegedly “assaulting” an 18-year old boy and that she would be arrested, that it was an organized smear campaign against her.

The latest 4th Ward “incident” involves a claim from an unidentified male who says that Dawn Zimmer “harassed” him and “grabbed his wrist” this past Friday evening (Oct. 12th) while he was “taking her picture”.

In a counter-claim from Zimmer, she indicates that said male’s continual “running in front of her” was “getting out of hand” while she was walking her dog near her residence.

Not sure why, but the police copy obtained has the name/D.O.B. blacked out. Dawn’s police statement is still in handwritten form and should be available from Police Headquarters after noon today. The Investigation Report indicates that “due to the facts presented and lack of any other proof”, it is not an “indictable offense”.

This, on top of the harassment claim Zimmer campaign workers have against Chris Campos. That case was ordered to be heard outside of Hoboken. You can see original Journal article here.

I’m awaiting an official response from Zimmer regarding this latest incident.

I bet xnavy is on that list of paid campos workers. I wonder if his real name is Nick………. Nick has at least 2 other screen names (though he no longer uses them – not since he got outed and his brother ended up getting caught stalking and harassing Zimmer)

Simple: because xnavyguy is a liar. And while that’s pretty straightforward, what’s really disturbing is that he’s masquerading as a person who has served time in our nation’s armed forces. Scratch that – it’s not disturbing, it’s disgusting. And anyone who can feel good about sending a heavy-set, 6ft tall 18 year old male to harass a tiny woman is a coward.

[quote comment=”49369″][quote comment=”49365″]xnavyguy, what proof do you have that she didn’t pick up after her dog?[/quote]
I don’t: I was asking a question (read the beamrider9’s post). I was just wondering why she would try to grab the camera.[/quote]

So if you have no proof, why did you say it was so?

If someone was harrassing me, taking photos and running
in my face, wouldn’t leave me alone, I would have done more than just grab for the camera. I would have called the cops right then and there.

xnavyguy, you really need to get a new schtick. The childish way you try to start rumors on here is not working. Consider taking it to where less-informed people might be more receptive. BTW, have you ever posted on H411 on non-politics threads? Or are you strictly a Campos political hatchet-man?

The “charges” against Dawn are a silly, ludicrous attempt at a smear. I understand they’re par for the course in this corrupt town, and I congratulate Campos for having the werewithal to lower himself to that level. But for those of us in the real world, it makes Campos even more of a caricature of a crooked political wannabe desperate to hold onto his job and his pipeline of back-room deals, kickbacks, and insider treatment.
