How cheap can you buy Lou Magazzu?

Pay-to-Play. This is also called Business as Usual in Cumberland County. true. If you don’t pay, you don’t play. However, for a minimal contribution to Lou Magazzu’s machine, you can reap extreme profits  from the taxpayers’ wallets.

For instance, Lipman Antonelli Batt Dunlop et al contributed $5000 to the CCDO. In return, in 2007 and 2008 the Cumberland County taxpayers paid this law office $338,910 courtesy of Lou Magazzu.

Gary Wodlinger was a loyal contributor to the CCDO. In 2007 he was paid over $70,000 for his loyalty and support. In 2008 Gary received $73,208. After that, Louis lobbied hard to ensure that Wodlinger was given a judgeship. Was that a promise made for his support? Maybe the press should ask Lou?

Genova Burns and Vernoia are a Newark, NJ politically connected law firm. They are affiliated with the worst of the worst corrupt politicians. Why are they interested in Cumberland County? And why did Lou give this North Jersey law firm $172,746 in taxpayer financed business? Why didn’t Lou keep that legal business inside our county? Cumberland County tax money should STAY IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY!

The Law Offices of Robinson and Andujar are staunch Democratic supporters. in 2007 and 2008 they received $115,867 from the Cumberland County taxpayers.It should also be noted that Arnold Robinson donated to Lou’s NACo slush fund.

Brendan Kavanaugh, Lou’s campaign manager, the one who lied to the public about approving the shady loan long before he held the position of campaign manager; Kavanaugh, chair of the Millville Democrat Organization received $189,409 from the county taxpayers. Brendan also donated to Lou’s secret slush fund.

So really, how cheaply can you buy Lou? It doesn’t seem to take a large donation to ensure a very profitable county contract for services. How many of these paybacks were no-bid contracts? courtesy of King Lou?

  1. I am waiting for tyagain/Lou to claim we are making these things up.

    These FACTS, in the words of another regular here, are nasty things, aren’t they Lou?

  2. tryagain says:

    DESPERATE, DESPERATE, DESPERATE is all I can say. You keep reaching for straws when you know and your CRAPPY forum with its’ little friends are DOOMED for failure!! MAGAZZU wins in Nov. because he has worked hard for Cumberland County and because he GETS THINGS DONE!! Unlike some of your little whiney friends ie. Chrusty, Tonetta, Sheppard, Peterson, Swift and whiney Greedy Gloria!! Oh well soon the election will be over and you can crawl back to from wherever you climbed out of!! Must be sad to live in your world of gloom and doom? RE-ELECT MAGAZZU AND CO.!!!! TOUGH LEADERS FOR TOUGH TIMES!!

  3. The fact is, the only thing Lou can talking about is a minor savings with his Clerk, but he will just go and second almost A MILLION DOLLARS OF TAXPAYER MONEY to contributors and OUTSIDE NORTH JERSEY lawyers!

    Tryagain, I am DELETING the comment you made that has absolutely nothing to do with this post – STAY ON TOPIC!

    Please explain the million dollars given to lawyers that donated to Lou! that is the very definition of pay-to-play!

    Tell us why you believe pay-to-play is proper! Give us the reasons you are defending pay-to-play in Cumberland County! Or just one reason you support pay-to-play!

  4. Sell me a bridge says:

    I’m curious. What about all the engineering fiirms that are getting paid by the county? Does anyone have a list of how much they were paid and how much they contributed to Team Magazzu?

  5. I just posted one article about an engineering firm – and we are investigating every lead.

    We will be happy to take any tip or lead, and as always promise anonymity to those that rightfully fear retribution from the Magazzu camp.

    Magazzu took dirty campaigning to an all new low with the recent telephone poll. Fortunately it has worked against him, disgusting many long time Dems. Everyone that I talked to that was interviewed was sickened by the vulgarity of the direction of the questions.

  6. tryagain says:

    Congratulations Blind One you are once again deleting comments based upon your Supreme rule Sure that the newspapers will be glad to hear about this!! As if my post has been th only one off topic in all your ranting comments by the Magazzu Haters Inc. Even YOUR last comment strayed from “contributions” to the poll!! Guess only Magazzu Haters can go off topic!! What time do you start the book burning? MAGAZZU BASH is at it again!!

    how much did georgia curio’s father give to the republicans to get his little girl a judge’s job? a hundred grand, that how much. not the georgia’s a bad judge. but judges get appointed by ds and rs because they give money to their bosses.

    georgia hardly ever stepped into a courtroom before being a judge. her dad just gave money. I said she is not a bad judge, just that she became one because her father gave money to the republicans. that happens all over new jersey and that why we have very few judges who are not rs or ds.

    and hal johnson? freeholder to judge? why? haldid nothing to become judge except help the rs. nothing at all. not that hal is a bad judge. just he did not do anything great to become one. just tow the party line. and give money. good for the goose, good for the gander.

  8. Miles Jackson – you are making some heavy accusations about sitting judges – so please use your real name.

    After a week of bashing those of us that use pen names, Miles Jackson now uses a pen name. What happened, louser tell you to change it up so you look like more people?

    What. A. Joke.

  11. Calhoun says:

    Buying judgeships through political contributions may be good for the geese (the Rs) and the ganders (Ds) but it is bad for the rest of us. It is hard to believe that we have become so desensitized to political corruption that individuals buying their way onto the bench — be they Rs or Ds — generates little more than a shrug of the shoulders from most of us. I used to think that NJ’s judicial system was better than other states, like PA, where judges are elected. I am now not so sure. I note the Rs have not made hay out of the Ds using bench positions as political plums and can only assume from this that the Rs like things the way they are.

  12. amused says:

    Seems to me the only reason this posting has appeared about judgeships from tryagain’s writing hack may be because Magazzu has been drooling for years for the opportunity to get a judgeship. Unfortunately for him the Dems that can make that happen aren’t foolish enough to even submit his name. They all know he has too many issues to ever get through the process. So tell me Magazzu, jealous much?

  13. DUMP the Maggot says:

    Interesting to note how tryagain is getting so agitated lately. Could it be that he has seen that the polls show Magazzu DOWN by over 10 points? Hmmmmm

  14. Calhoun says:

    The link you have for Brendan Kavanagh’s political contributions are those that are listed under the incorrect “Kavanaugh” spelling. There are more listed under the correct “Kavanagh” spelling. I hope this is just a transcription error on ELEC’s part. Never got any suggestions from a previous post as to why Quinn back in 2001 sold one of his High Street buildings assessed at almost 100K to Kavanagh for a mere 20K.

  15. As I said, I use my name. sound like a setup by MW. You’ve certainly stooped to every other trick.

    If I am queqeg, then you’re breakng your own rules on keeping name private, as you state on your sign in sheet. Privacy will be maintained.

    But I’m not,although I wouldn’t put anything past MW and those who operate it. I’ve had the guts to use my name, again and again.. You’re the ones hiding behind fake names.

    So again, I ask you to prove it. And reveal the names of other posters, all of them. Or look for a fan of Herman Melville.

    Today’s posts have hit a new low. Through and through, ignorance of the most basic government forms, blaming an international fiscal crisis on CC Dems.

    And now trying to claim I’m someone else- again. Or breaking your promise of maintaining privacy-take your pick. I’d say the latter is so vile that even MW would be shamed by such a claim. But then again, maybe I’m wrong.

    MW has become such a joke that 99 and 44/100th of the county’s residents with online capacity either ignores it or is sickened by it. MW has done more to drum up support for Louis Magazzu and the Democrats because mot people have the basic decency to recognize trash from the truth.

    So keep up the good work. And maybe start looking in the yellow pages under “lawyers-libel and slander” for the inevitable fallout after the election. Sorry that most of the good ones have already been retained.

  16. Guess-Who says:

    Does anyone here on Magazzuwatch know where I or anyone else can find these stats from this polling that RESULTED in this percentage being Claimed;
    “99 and 44/100th of the county’s residents”?
    That only leaves 56/100 to retain 100%.

    Then again it is the Conducting of a Scientific Poll & the Questions that are ASK that will determine if 100% is Achievable.

    Keep on writing Miles. It is obvious that you are not writing under any other name!! Those that operate and maintain this CRAP site make up new rules as they go along. As long as the rules allow them to continually bash Magazzu they are happy! That is all this forum is, just a partisan and political website with the sole purpose of unseating Magazzu!! MAGAZZU WINS IN NOVEMBER BECAUSE HE GETS THE JOB DONE!!!

  18. Rev. Higgs Boson says:

    Magazzu watch is such a joke, yet not only is louser posting on every thread, but now he’s paying you, Mr. Jackson, to do the same. Somehow your actions speak much louder than your words.

    And I like the Queqeg reference. Are you subconsciously saying that lou magazzu’s quest for power will, in the end, destroy himself and his crew, as Capt. Ahab did? Or are you just calling lou a white whale?

    Either way, I’m down with it.
