LINE A - Democrat Vandals in
10/31/15 - 11/01/15

I reported this same illegal
activity last Spring, before the June Primary Election, but now the Line A Democrats are back at it,
unlawfully posting their signs on lampposts along Sanford Street.
I will try to travel around the city again to see the extent of
This sign was posted today
(10/31/15) on the lamppost at the corner of Melrose Avenue and
Sanford Street (yes, in front of THAT same house in the same disrepair
as when it was last reported). The lamp
on that post was reported to the department of public works last
week for blinking on and off, and it is still not fixed tonight
when it is really needed on that dark corner.
On the reverse side of the
lamppost, someone else has posted a sign for a private business.
I guess people feel that if the high and mighty Democrats who run
this town can break their own laws and codes with impunity, so
can they. That's how East Orange changed from a beautiful city
almost into a slum, and although it is beginning to make a
comeback, it doesn't take much sliding to go right back down to
Here is another sign further
south along Sanford Street, just so you know that it is not an
isolated incident. I am photographing each poster that I see
beginning tomorrow, for the record and for keeping track of how
much money the city should collect from the Essex County
Democratic Committee that is responsible for these code
As promised, I went out for a
ride on my electric tricycle to see how far these council
candidates would go to scoff at the laws and ordinances they make
for the rest of us... but which do not, apparently, apply to
them. Central Avenue is once again covered with evidence that
they think themselves above the laws they make for the rest of
us. Why do the majority of East Orange voters inflict these
corrupt politicians on us? It is because the entire group of LINE
A politicians are corrupt, from the mayor on down. You can see
this from the many examples exposed in The True News. They get
elected by drawing in voters who vote for them because they give
them jobs in city hall, or free stuff in the parks and parties,
and hope everyone sees their LINE A signs instead of the litter
covering the street.
Instead of fixing things like
this (which has been reported to the city every year for the past
two years - 2014 - 2015) they only get involved in "show jobs" where
they can pose for photos to make it appear that they are working
hard to improve the city instead of neglecting it, as usual.
Just think, if the Department of
Public Works had done it's job in 2014, the Essex County
Democrats would have had another lamppost with which to violate
Code 238-4. And these corrupt Line A candidates will probably be
elected on Tuesday by the same ignorant voters that voted for
them in June.
Lest you think the corrupt
candidates did not sign their work, here are five signs in a row
proclaiming Jackie Johnson guilty of violating Code 238-4. Can
you spot all five? Since they are posted back to back, that's 10
code violations right in front of you, which, unless you are
corrupt city code enforcer Dwight
Saunders, you can plainly see. Why is
he corrupt? Because he obviously did not enforce the code last May when
Jackie Johnson and the five other LINE A Candidates were doing
the exact same thing. If he had, she might
have learned a lesson and not repeated it today.
Instead, she has taken out her
vengeance on a helpless tree, paid for by the taxpayers and
planted by the city, in what can only be regarded as a public
place under Code 238-4. The poster was attached with several
staples cutting through the bark and into the trunk. The soda
cans at its base can be picked up and tossed into the trash
without harming the tree, but it will take a long time for the
staple scars in the tree trunk to heal even if the poster is
removed tomorrow. It is one of several trees so abused - I have
the photographs to prove it.
I would have thought Quilla
Talmadge would have learned her lesson. After all, she was quoted
as saying in the Essex News Daily: The law is the law and, if you break it, you
have to answer for it, said Talmadge on Tuesday, April 14,
2015. How are you going to say that you want to run for
office and get elected to the council, if you dont abide by
the laws that youre supposed to help write? It doesnt
make any sense. Now we can clearly see that she means that
for YOU but not for HER or the other members of her family that
work for the City, or the other high and mighty City Council
members whom she plainly regards as above the law.
Just when I was thinking Assembly
woman Shiela Oliver was one of the responsible Democratic
candidates for office, I discovered this morning that she has
joined the scofflaw riff-raff of East Orange by planting her
poster in public property. There are other posters of hers along
Parkway Drive, but I chose this one because it also reminds us of
the failed promise of Lester Taylor to clean up abandoned
properties, of which the city has quite a few. I believe this is
his failed project of building a parking garage as part of his
transit city fantasies. The lot looks exactly the way it did when
Bowser was mayor, and Taylor is following in his footsteps-
promising everything but doing nothing, or as little as possible.
Reminder: You can always write in KEVIN Taylor's name under
Shiela Oliver's place on the ballot.
At the corner of Halsted and Main
Street the vandals have put in overtime in making sure that every
possible public post covered under Code 238-4 was defaced with
their unlawful political litter.
In case we don't know whom to
blame, Jackie Johnson has conveniently mounted many of the
posters bearing her name on lampposts along Main Street near the
historic Brick Church landmark that used to symbolize the beauty
of East Orange until lowlife politicians moved in and took over.
11/03/15 Election Day 2015
I was shocked to learn that Mayme
Robinson, for whom I had already voted on a mail-in ballot, had
joined the other law breakers by having her posters not only on
public property, but also within 100 feet of the entrance to the
Old Sanford Street Polling Place in violation of the NJ Statute
against electioneering. It is too late for me to retract my vote,
but if she wins, she will find me watching her every move with
suspicion, as I have learned to do for the other LINE A
Democratic party puppets.
New Jersey Statutes - Title 19
Elections - 19:34-15. Electioneering within or about
polling place; disorderly persons offense.
19:34-15. If a person shall distribute or display any circular or printed matter
or offer any suggestion or solicit any support for any
candidate, party or public question within the polling
place or room or within a distance
of one hundred feet of the outside entrance to such
polling place or room, he shall be guilty of a
disorderly persons offense.
I already knew that Quilla
Talmadge was capable of violating the statute against
electioneering from previous elections, but to see
newcomer Mayme Robinson following so closely in her footsteps was
disturbing to me.
This display of crap plastering
one of our taxpayer provided city streetlights may not violate
the statute on electioneering (The Elmwood Firehouse in the
background is a Polling Place) but it definitely violates East
Orange City Code 238-4.
Not one of the candidates for
City Council, and not one of the current members of City Council,
is worthy of the office. When they recite the oath of office on
January 1st, they will be lying, and then they will continue to
live in that lie as long as they remain in office. We have no
hope of improving the City of East Orange and restoring it to its
former glory until we rid ourselves of the thieves and liars that
we ourselves have voted into office.
11/04/15 The Election is Over. The Taxpayers of East Orange
LOST! The freeloaders at City Hall have won again.
The aftermath is shown below.
This is the scene of the Elmwood
St. Firehouse again. The sign at the top of the post is ironic.
Did anyone watch this crime as it was perpetrated on our city?
There is a Permit Required To Park, but no permit is required to
vandalize public property, or to litter. I will bet that Sheila
Oliver never comes to visit the site of the crime although she
lives just a short distance from here.
Look at the top of the Central
Avenue lamppost. That's what it looked like when it was first put
here a few years ago. The vandals have not been able to reach it.
Now look below. It will never be the same again. This is not
being done by drug dealers or gangbangers, but by the lowest of
the low: public servants following the orders of politicians who
care nothing for the city, but are only here to drink at the
trough of taxpayers like the pigs they are.
Here is Quilla Talmadge, still
hanging out at her favorite spot for electioneering. No one told
her the election was over and it's time to come and pick up her
trash. Who knows how long it will be here. While I was
photographing, I met the pastor of this church. He seems like a
nice person, but he's not an East Orange taxpayer, so he feels no
obligation to think that any of this is his problem and
his personal responsibility. After all, he's not St.
Paul... just the pastor.
It's only electioneering when the
polls are open, like they were yesterday, but no one has bothered
to take down this evidence now that the crime has been committed.
I have many more photographs filed away of this sad moment in
East Orange history. I only hope the people of East Orange aren't
too stubborn or too ignorant to learn from their history. Time
The next crime will take place on
January first of 2016 when the city council members swear the
oath of office: to uphold the constitution of the United States,
the State of New Jersey, and the laws of the City of East Orange.
Be prepared to weep.
City Codes - Article II,
Except as hereinafter provided,

promulgated pursuant to such Code or other City ordinance shall
be punished by a fine not less than $100 and not exceeding $2,000

Each day any

From the city's
own Web Site:
Any citizen, whether a property owner, tenant or neighbor, can
report a violation or suspected violations, to the Department of
Property Maintenance for inspection. In fact, the reporting of
violations by citizens is an essential tool for Property
Maintenance to fulfill its mission.
I will be holding all my dated
photographs for use as evidence, in case the city can't collect
the appropriate fines from those responsible and the case has to
go to court. If we want East Orange restored to its former beauty
and respectability, we can't let a few Council members and
wannabee politicians drag OUR city down.

The Line A Vandals are once again posting their unlawful
signs on lamp posts, currently all along Sanford Street.
Your code enforcer, Dwight Saunders, does nothing once
again - no tickets are issued, no fines are levied. I'm
reporting this so you can't say you weren't notified that
these violations of East Orange City Code 238-4 are
happening once again conveniently on a week-end when I am
sure all city offices are closed and no one can do
anything about it.

The Line A Vandals are once again posting their unlawful
signs on lamp posts, currently all along Sanford Street
and on Central Avenue. As code enforcer, you did nothing
when I reported this last May, and once again you are
ignoring the code violations - no tickets are issued, no
fines are levied. I'm reporting this by e-mail so you
can't say you weren't notified that these violations of
East Orange City Code 238-4 are happening once again
conveniently on a week-end when I am sure all city
offices are closed and no one can do anything about it.
The violations have been photographed and published
on-line so everyone can see that the codes and laws only
apply to some, but not to all.

As a council woman of the City of East Orange, you know
that when you posted signs with your name on it along
Main Street in the historic Brick Church area, you were
in violation of Code 238-4, just as you were in violation
of the same code last spring when your signs were posted
along Central Avenue. You disrespect our city and our
historic traditions. I hope the voters in your ward
respond accordingly on election day, but if they don't
and you end up with another term of office, they should
think seriously about asking for a recall vote.
Your deeds will be long remembered: LINE A Democrat Vandals 11-03-15
Electioneering in East Orange
Violation of East Orange City Code 238-4 continues on
Election Day, 11/03/15, but far worse is the
electioneering photographed at the Old Sanford Street
Polling Place. All of you council members and public
workers to whom this is addressed allowed this to happen
on your watch, even after being warned and notified daily
by me that it was going on, with photographic evidence
published for all of East Orange to see. Those of you who
took oaths of office have violated them, and those who
will pretend to mouth the words of the oath of office in
the future will be known to swear falsely. I am ashamed
of all of you, and will work to expose your misdeeds,
lies, and stealing salaries from public offices that none
of you deserve.
Now that the election is over and
the LINE A vandals are gloating with their success at once again
fooling enough of the voters of East Orange to get into office,
they will use that to justify the means by which they did so.
What they fail to remember is that this is all a part of East
Orange History, now and forevermore. They can't sweep the truth
under a rug; it is out there for all to see and their descendants
and future generations of voters will see the photographic truth
about the way East Orange was run in the early 2000's.
