I received the 3rd correspondence from ELEC this week, denying my request for any complaints or requests for investigation involving Lou Magazzu. ELEC told me twice that no documents existed, even though I was holding one in my hands. Now I find that Matt Rooney of the SaveJersey blog has the original complaint – the one that ELEC claims does not exist.
There are obviously complaints on file, as the report by a North Jersey paper yesterday confirm. Our local papers, as usual, continue to protect Lou from any adverse media attention. In effect, Stephen Sweeney, Senate president said that Lou Magazzu lied to him about the status of Lou’s NACo account. Both SaveJersey and MagazzuWatch have been watching this saga closely, coming public with the facts long before any of the mainstream media even paid attention.
As I see it, the only way Sweeney can protect his posterior is to roll on Magazzu big time. It seems evident that Louis lied to not only Sweeney, but to his other contributors, claiming that Lou4NACo was a Political Action Committee (PAC). MWatch questioned Lou’s comments to the media well over a year ago, when Lou insisted that his NACo account was in fact a PAC. When we dug and could find no evidence of such PAC, Lou came back with a second version of the facts. He claimed that he used a poor choice of words, when in fact he meant that Lou4NACo was his own personal bank account.
I still have to wonder what happened to the $81,000 he claims was donated to his fake PAC, as I hear rumblings that this income was neither declared on his income taxes, nor any ELEC report. Isn’t that what brought Al Capone down?
