Monmouth Dems Raising Money With Unregistered PAC?



Vin Gopal, Middletown Democratic Chairman Joe Caliendo, and others have formed the Blue Monmouth PAC, which held a fundraiser in Matawan last night for that town's municipal Democratic candidates.

As of 3PM this afternoon, there is no Blue Monmouth PAC registered with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission. (ELEC)

Monmouth County Democratic Chairman Victor Scudiery told MoreMonmouthMusings that he was at the Matawan fundraiser, but that he had no knowledge of Gopal's involvement. "Bud Mullaney invited me and the invitation made no mention of a PAC," said Scudiery. Mullaney is a Matawan Borough councilman up for re-election.

Gopal, the former West Long Branch Democratic chairman and former Kucinich for President volunteer and fundraising coordinator, called shortly after the conversation with Scudiery. "Where did you get the email, Pat Menna," asked Gopal. Menna, the Democratic Mayor of Red Bank and the Matawan Borough Attorney, did not provide the email invitation (pictured above) to MoreMonmouthMusings.

Gopal said the PAC was formed on Tuesday September 29, and that by law it had 10 days to register. He said that PAC did not raise the $40,000 mentioned in the invitation, but PAC members had.

Vic Scudiery is still trying to run Matawan through Bud Mullaney. This is funny, the local Matawan Republicans hold a fundraiser in a resident's home and the Democrats run a Fundraiser in a Bar/Restaurant. What no residents would open their homes for a Bud Mullaney Democrat ticket fundraiser? Scudiery probably wrote another big fat check for Mullaney and company! Vic doesn't get it....Matawan is not for sale!

Great research Art.

Vin Gopal controls much of what is going on in Monmouth County Democratic machine circles....He made sure Sean Byrnes was nominated and he has the county committee seats that delivers for Scudiery. he also has the freeholders he is close to damico, ive seen them.

Most important is his ultra-liberal past, he was a staff member to Ted Kennedy and Dennis Kuchinich - FEC reports show that this kid made over $100,000 in consulting fees from Kuchinich in 2007 alone. He also made thousand and thousands of dollars from various ultra New York liberals. and how about his Hudson County past? He made over $40,000 as a consultant from indicted mayor Joe Vas in Middlesex County in 2006

Make no mistake, he has a lot of pull among municipal chairs i see him in Middletown all the time and he's positioning himself to succeed Scudiery. He raises all the money for caliendo.

This is an ultra-liberal who is out of touch with Monmouth County. HE STILL WORKS AS A PAID ADVISOR TO DENNIS KUCHINICH!!!ELEC ALSO SHOWS HES GETTING PAID BY SEVERAL NEWARK CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS.
