OK scandal and corruption fans, Mayor Jerramiah Healy has taken a fall back position now that Steady Eddie Cheatam admitted in open court during his sentencing to funneling dirty money into Healy's campaign. Healy who before has said he's done nothing wrong and that he didn't wanna discuss the situation must have realized the more damning admission by Cheatam was rather damaging.
According to the Jersey Journal Hizzoner is saying:
"any donations to my campaign account by those individuals charged in this federal investigation have been isolated for donation to charity."
Ya see Mayor, it doesn't matter if that money is now designated for charity, the FACT it it was funneled into YOUR campaign and certainly a big strong man like yourself knows YOU are responsible for how that money gets into your account. YOU must take ownership of your campaign finances. We find this an apt quote:
Grima Wormtongue from Tolkien's 'The Two Towers'
"Who knows what you have spoken to the darkness, alone, in the bitter watches of the night, when all your life seems to shrink, the walls of your bower closing in about you, a hutch to trammel some wild thing in? So fair, yet so cold like a morning of pale Spring still clinging to Winter's chill."
It won't be long now Jersey City but keep up the watch and we commend those taking the message directly to the Mayor. If you haven't yet seen this video of citizens protesting at the Jersey City Hall using theater to do so, well pull up a chair:
