Hoboken411 Exclusive: Did Zimmer commit perjury?
On January 3rd of this year, more taxpayer money was spent on legal fees when the Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer testified for several hours in the case of William Campbell v. The City of Hoboken. Campbell alleges that Zimmer fired him to make way for her political water
boys guns, Dan Bryan and Juan Melli.
Hoboken411 has received a copy of Hoboken Mayor Stawn Zimmer’s testimony and it appears the Mayor may have committed perjury.
For a former photographer, Zimmer seemed very uncomfortable being on camera. Perhaps Zimmer is only comfortable when she is behind the camera waving a rubber duck and saying “smile.” Zimmer also appeared to be suffering from amnesia repeatedly answering “I don’t recall,” “I don’t know,” and “I don’t remember.” Maybe this is why we’ve never hear a word about her the specific plan to cut property taxes 25% that she promised during her run for office?
Zimmer claims ignorance; Documents suggest otherwise
The possibility of perjury takes place when Zimmer is unable to recall who was behind the illegal Political Action Committee (PAC) named Move Hoboken Ahead that funded her city council candidates’ campaigns in May 2011. Mayor Zimmer claims that she did not know who was behind the PAC (begins at 3:30:28 in the video above). There are several damning pieces of evidence that suggest that the Mayor may very well have been lying through her teeth.
First and foremost, the Chairman of Move Hoboken Ahead is Andrew Moss. The same Andrew Moss who is the treasurer for Zimmer’s personal campaign account Zimmer for Mayor. The was pointed out several times during the city council campaigns and one candidate even filed a complaint against Zimmer for her use of this illegal PAC.
In addition, Zimmer hosted a fundraiser for the PAC and City Council candidates in her own home on March 17, 2011. In fact, Zimmer sent out a blast email to supporters asking them to attend the fundraiser at her home. In the email, Zimmer suggests that donors contribute $250 towards her teams “city wide effort.” Soon after, Move Hoboken Ahead sent out several city wide mailers which had pictures of Zimmer and her signature and feature the same green and yellow colors as Zimmer’s Mayoral campaign mailers.
Last but not least, Hoboken’s worst man Stan Grossbard is listed on Move Hoboken Ahead’s ELEC reports for contributing $650 to pay for the event! Is everyone supposed to believe the Mayor hosted a fundraiser at her home that her husband paid for, but 8 months later doesn’t recall who is behind the illegal PAC?
The truth is Zimmer just doesn’t want you to know she and her husband are behind it.
Zimmer has a long history of being able to twist the truth and get away with it. To date, she has even got away with stonewalling the investigation into Dan Bryan’s and Juan Melli’s political activities while being compensated by the taxpayers. But this time it appears Zimmer went too far in trying to cover up how her administration uses taxpayers’ money for political purposes.
Hoboken411 wonders if Campbell’s attorney Catherine Elston will not only call the Mayor out on her false testimony when the Mayor appears in court again on February 9th but also ask for her to be charged with perjury.
What are the odds the Mayor settles the lawsuit and gives Campbell his job back before that can happen?
