Was “Returned” $610 Returned Or Not?

In yesterday’s Coast Star about the unreported $610 that the Monmouth Democratic Women’s Caucus sent to Jeniffer Nicolay:


OK, anyone care to explain this:?



So was it returned because it was made out incorrectly, was it returned because it would be illegal to take or was it, despite what the Coast Star was told, not returned at all and instead pocketed by the Belmar Democratic Committee?  Add to this the “mix up” about the check numbers and I’m starting to think that something really stinks here.

    Sorry to change the subject, but I wasn’t sure if you caught this. The mayor posted a photo captioned “Belmar DPW painting green line down Main Street today. St. Pat Parade kicks off at 12:30 on Sunday.” If you look at the photo, it is the recreation director, the director of social services and the borough clerk.

    Did family member pump that $500., into the Dem candidate’s coffers voluntarily or only when the pressure was applied did they have to kick in on behalf of the waterfront owner?

    this is the same fancy math that balances Belmar’s budget with increased spending but no tax hikes.

    Oh this is easy. There were 3 checks, each made out to 3 different entities… Jennifer Nicolay, Nicolay for Council and the Belmar Democratic Committee. Each check was written out for the uncanny amount of $610.00 (?!). Nicolay returned her check because of the conflict. The women’s caucus people went to Jennifer’s house to take check back because it wasn’t written correctly, and the Belmar Dems deposited their’s because they take money from anyone.
    Told you…easy. Here is the only problem, I don’t think the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission is just going to believe their story. They are going to take a look at bank records and such. Good luck with that.

    The Nrcc seems innocent enough until you track it to come from the northeast carpenters Union out of Edison. Humm. Our Mayor is from Edison no? And isn’t Chefs International which has that sweetheart deal at our precious marina from Edison? Humm. Such a wondering…….

    Claire help me out on this one. The Monmouth County Democratic Women’s Caucus reports a contribution to Jen Nicolay on 10/14/15 in the amount of $610 check number 105? (hard to make out 1056 if I was guessing). This is the very type of wheeled contribution our pay to play law prohibits. The Coast star follows up with great reporting and what we get is this song and dance about returned checks and piles of paper. But the truth is the $610 contribution form MCDWC ends up in the Belmar Democratic Committee (Claire Deicke Chairperson)deposited on 10/23/15. Interesting because the MCDWC never reported making said contribution. How do you explain that. Isn’t that contribution and the other wheeled contributions you collected and spent on candidate Nicolay and free pavilions the real reason you are in favor of the change in the pay to play law?

    Speak Claire Deicke speak explain your actions. You have no trouble talking fantasy comments at the meetings but when confronted with FACTS, silence.

    Seems like everyone involved has been advised not to comment because there are some serious legal issues here. I see one posting where the author admitted to committing a violation. Well that’s clearly documented no further investigation needed. No additional comments necessary either. Open mouth insert foot.

    Bad bookkeeping is bad behavior this will not go on forever and if not corrected soon, they all will see what happens when you try to fool the people. You can fool some of the people some of the time but you cant fool all the people all the time.

    #16 Apparently enough people have been fooled, or shall I say “convinced” to vote for people with little governing credentials. Come on now, a pinky challenge as something to be proud of? A coach who does not know enough about ordinances and even admits it? A pilot who is relegated to doing “women’s work” for the council? A band teacher who thinks he knows about constitutional law?
