By now you are realizing that Magazzu, Jannarone, Pepitone and Thompson have gotten what they wanted. They have diverted the voting publics attention away from the issues and their deplorable record by bringing up the history of a non-candidate.
They all have lied from the get-go. Jane said that her press conference had nothing to do with the election, and immediately we see fliers in our mailboxes. Joe Pepitone lied to people’s faces when he attempted to apologize for the sleaze campaign, claiming he had nothing to do with it.
Jane found herself in hot water by using a non-profit organization that serves battered women as the backdrop of her cynical mudfest.
However, Jannarone is under criticism from the organization that sponsored a domestic violence vigil she attended Oct. 6 in Vineland. Jannarone said that event was the last push she needed to go ahead with her press conference about Greco the next day.
Geri Esposito-Reale, executive director of the Cumberland County Women’s Shelter, on Wednesday said she is “appalled” Jannarone used the vigil as a backdrop to a political attack.
Esposito-Reale said she has invited Jannarone on multiple occasions to visit the shelter, but the freeholder has never come there. The county provides some financial support to the shelter.
If Jane is so concerned about domestic violence, why is she silent about the history of two current elected officials? Oh wait, they are on her team. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse. Jane came out and called one of the most respected women in the county a liar. She doesn’t stop with just one accusation, but repeatedly accuses Geri Esposito-Reale of lying. I don’t know about you, but I think Ms. Esposito-Reale has a better reputation than Jannarone.
But Jane doesn’t stop there. She demostrates to the world how utterly clueless she is with this staement:
Furthermore, I am perplexed that although Ms. Esposito-Reale indicates that she isn’t political, she would insert herself and her organization into this matter.
Excuse me Jane, but YOU are responsible for inserting the Shelter for Abused Women, and hence Ms. Esposito-Reale into your obvious and shameless political crusade. Ms. Esposito-Reale has no reason to lie, she was unwillingly dragged into your charade, under false pretenses. You, however, have every reason to lie.
Can Pepitone, Thompson and Jannarone (who is the Pepitone Thompson campaign treasurer, if you are wondering how this all fits together) get any filthier?
Nelson and Joe, even if your spokesperson Jannarone refuses to apologize to Ms. Esposito-Reale, you both should be men enough to speak to her face to face and apologize for this inexcusable farce. But I don’t think either of you have the backbone to do what is right when you are so clearly in the wrong.
