The Magazzu-Corzine connection

Why would Jon Corzine donate $5,000 to Lou Magazzu for a personal campaign that Lou had lost a month earlier? We are asking ELEC this question, and more. Was this donation used to help Lou pay a loan he took from the local Democratic Party, that he was unable to repay?

If Jon Corzine had contributed to Lou’s failed NACo campaign before the election, we could understand. however, EVERY COUNTY in the nation rejected Lou. Not one county would even second Lou’s nomination, and two counties actually objected to the nomination in the first place.

So not only did Lou lose his bid for 2nd vice president of NACo, he never actually was in the running. But still, Jon Corzine saw fit to give Lou $5,000 after all was said and done. Lou had walked away a loser, and a month later Jon gives him money. Why?

The Republican challengers to Lou’s run for Freeholder are asking the same question:

Lou Magazzu recently attempted to explain away the $10,000 interest free loan he gave himself from the Cumberland County Democrats by saying he told his campaign manager. Cumberland County Republican freeholder candidates Rick Tonetta, Tom Sheppard and Sam Fiocchi aren’t buying the explanation and have more questions pertaining to the loan.

“For Lou Magazzu to attempt to explain away a $10,000 interest free loan by saying his campaign manager said it was okay is ridiculous,” Republican freeholder candidate Rick Tonetta said. “Just once I’d like to hear Magazzu say something of substance.”

“The explanation was laughable,” GOP freeholder candidate Tom Sheppard added. “Imagine the uproar if one of us told our campaign manager the Republican organization was giving out a $10,000 interest free loan. I expected Magazzu to do a better job spinning the loan but, then again, when you get caught with your hand in the cookie jar it’s hard to get it out.”

“The problem for Magazzu and all his spinning is no one is buying it and there are a lot of questions left unanswered regarding the $10,000 interest free loan he gave to himself,” Republican freeholder candidate Sam Fiocchi said.

“Either Magazzu or Jon Corzine need to come clean with the circumstances around the $5,000 contribution to Magazzu for NACo a month after he lost the election,” Fiocchi continued. “Any person who can think for themselves would come to the conclusion that the Corzine contribution looks suspicious.”

Fiocchi asked, “Was this $5,000 contribution simply a way to wheel money to the Cumberland County Democratic Organization? Did Magazzu ask for the contribution after he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar? Did Magazzu and Corzine share emails regarding the situation?”

It is time for some HONEST answers. Lou, are you listening? Please, explain to us. Something smells fishy in Denmark.

    Denmark would not allow such stench. But in the Soprano State, it’s the fragrance of graft.

    “Did Magazzu and Corzine share emails regarding the situation?” I think Fiocchi might think Magazzu is the new Carla Katz.

    And Bob Greco would be the new ________?

  4. Rev. Higgs Boson says:

    Look, Look, Bob Greco and Cape May! Look! Greedy Gloria Noto! Look! Candy man Steve Wymbs! Ignore the discussion going on! Forget what louser is doing! Look! Look! Bob Greco and Cape May!….

    If this is the best you can do to answer the growing concerns of the citizens and taxpayers of Cumberland County, no wonder we are listed as the worse county in the state.

    Absolutely no leadership. GRIP.

    Tryagain, what is your deal with Bob Greco? Are you secretly in love with him? All you ever say is Greco, Greco, Greco, it’s getting old. There are almost too many candidates to keep track of in the freeholder race and the only person you talk about isn’t even running. What gives?

    Before you answer I know it’s true others mention names of people that aren’t on the ballot and I haven’t questioned them but that’s because they don’t do it constantly. Every lunch hour when I look at this site I see something from you about Greco, it is getting old. Please pick someone who is running for something.

    Magazzu / Corzine connection??? Same as the Magazzu / McGreevey connection. I hear Lou is hoping to have Corzine agree to be the godfather to his children. Oh, wait. He already had McGreevey do that. But, since McGreevey is out of the closet, maybe Lou can have the god”father” thing annulled.

  7. vineland visitor says:

    WUU59X may have something here. Lou and McGreevey have a lot in common. Both have no ethics. Both have out of control egos and both have disgraced themselves publicly. Now, when Louie gets the heave ho in November, they will share that as well – both ousted. Cannot wait. I may even vote early.

    Now that you have uncovered Lou’s dirty deeds this Summer, go back to March 2009, when he had a suite reserved and invited commissioners over for drinks. Who paid for that, or the previous years, when he did the same thing? It’s too late to cover up, and you can be certain that Lou didn’t pay for it.
