Hey SJ Tell Your Workers Not to Violate Election Law!

Jung

The vote has been compromised.

Ushering votes inside a poll site? Just ask S.J Jung.

This morning at PS 46 in Oakland Gardens, voters were a little shocked to see a person inside the polling station wearing a “Vote for SJ” t-shirt “assisting voters, ” a clear violation of election law.

While we can’t tell if this person was a BOE employee or a Jung campaigner– either way this is clearly a violation, one worse than the other.

And it happened multiple times.

The Jung supporter was clearly walking around the poll site, according to eye witnesses, and “assisting” Korean voters — but more than likely this “assistance” came with encouragement to vote for Jung.

Such blatant acts of electioneering inside poll sites is absolutely abysmal, and poll supervisors are supposed to stop this immediately, but someone wasn’t doing their job.

Clearly, it’s this is an indication of the work Jung would do if elected.

And more than likely when confronted, Jung will seek refuge above the cloud of work his campaign was really doing to get him elected: compromising the vote.

Guess where S.J Jung’s money is coming from?

Screen Shot 2014-09-06 at 6.25.01 PM

$118,956 of $219,402 (54%) came from New Jersey.

Here’s a hint: it’s not Queens.

According to the Campaign Finance database, 54% of all contributions to the S.J. JUNG FOR STATE SENATE committee came from New Jersey.

Whether it’s Edison, Closter, Teaneck, Cliffside Park, or Englewood Cliffs, Jung’s candidacy is being financed by out-of-towners.

Maybe we should call him South Jersey Jung?

Contributions buy influence, it’s a fact, but do we really want that influence coming from New Jersey into Queens? What does this say about the candidate?

According to the 2014 report, Jung raised a total of $219,402, of which $118,956 (more than half of his donations) came from New Jersey-based contributors.

And there’s even more money that came in from outside the district, other than New Jersey, adding insult to injury.

It’s no wonder a hunk of his campaign war chest is coming in from New Jersey, Jung’s lived there for most of his life — only making an occasional appearance here in Queens to run for one office or another.

The proof is in the pudding. Aren’t we tired of this?

AGAIN HE ORDERS… “A ONE WAY TICKET FROM NEW JERSEY”

Jersey

S.J. must love Chris Christie.

S.J Jung is a longtime Republican seeking office in SD 16 –a district where he has no roots  or community service because he’s lived in New Jersey.

So what’s the issue? Jung was only registered in NY since 2009, shortly after he moved here from Westwood, New Jersey. In that same year, he ran on the WFP line and lost to Democrat Yen Chou, so that didn’t work out, and rumor had it he moved back to New Jersey until the time was right to move back to NY to try and steal another seat.

Don’t believe us? Check out his buff card below:

But wait, it gets better. “Diversity is a virtue,” said Jung, according to his website. “As a member of the State Senate, I will continue to be a bridge-builder who reaches out to and works with diverse communities, while providing unifying leadership that brings people together.”

That’s pretty funny, Jung the “bridge-builder,” because the only bridge you are building is the one back home to New Jersey.

According to his website, “For the last twenty-six years, S.J. Jung has been a passionate advocate for the community (what community?), fighting for policies supporting the most vulnerable New Yorkers, including immigrants and working families, and building bridges with diverse communities to enhance racial and ethnic harmony.”

Twenty-six years? What a load of campaign nonsense! Lifelong residents of the district have never seen or heard from S.J Jung except when he flirts with a run for office or steals credit from the good work of the Minkwon Center .

And what’s this about “ethnic harmony” he’s trying to create? If you read our article yesterday, you’d know that’s simply not true. Jung is supported by an Anti-Semitic coalition that will piggyback their agenda vis-à-vis Jung’s “campaign consultants” directly into legislation.

In New Jersey, we expect to hear about corruption. It’s basically built into the system. They have 566 municipalities, the most per capita of any state. Local governments tax the citizens dry, while preserving the opportunities for graft that flow from operating redundant public services. The state legislature likes it this way and always has.

We have to ask why was this left out of his his bio?

Look, this community is not to be taken advantage of just to become the collateral damage in Jung’s lust for power. Or even worse, resemble New Jersey in any size, shape, or form.

No one here wants to be a pawn in this huge electoral scheme and we aren’t going to remove the only woman representing us in Senate just for some Johnny-come-lately.

S.J Jung to Kids: Ditch School for Me

sjjung_tl_2014_05_16_q_filesantucci_z

Hey kids, you can ditch school to help me get elected.

The S.J. Jung campaign tells kids and teachers it’s ok to play hookey to help him get elected.

It’s that time of year again and the kids are just getting back to school however, school isn’t that important when it comes to working for free to help someone get elected. See the story below.

[From The Post] A candidate for a Queens state Senate seat is teaching high- school students a strange civics lesson: It’s OK to skip school to help get him elected.

S.J. Jung’s campaign e-mailed students at top-rated Townsend Harris HS, saying the pol’s team would provide “an absence letter to excuse you from academic duties” if they agreed to volunteer to defeat Sen. Toby Stavisky in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.

“We are looking for an insane number of bodies to help, starting on Thursday, 9/4. I know that school also starts on the same day, but just remember that this is the last week of this campaign,” Jung staffer Wennie Chin wrote.

“I will gladly write an absence letter to excuse you from your academic duties.”

Chin wrote that teachers “will also be proud of our dedication towards S.J. and his candidacy — Mr. Scardino himself will be door knocking with us this weekend.”

This is the man who wants to replace the Chair of the Higher Education Committee? That’s some example he’s setting.

Meet Jung’s Anti-Semitic Support Network

sjjung_tl_2014_05_16_q_filesantucci_z

This is why we have to be mindful of a candidate beyond the palm cards. Beware of S. J Jung.

Did you ever wonder who’s really behind a campaign?

Campaigns hire the seediest people. Yes, seedy. Really seedy. In fact, whether their advice comes from convicts or consulting firms that blur the line between Super PACs and direct campaigning, some of these “consulting” characters really take the cake. Take for instance, Peter Brown, the chief advisor to S.J Jung, a candidate running for State Senate in Queens, who’s been working to prove that US government agents were responsible for the destruction of 7 World Trade Center.

The BrownMiller Group, of which Peter Brown is a founding partner, led the effort to collect more than 53,000 signatures on petitions to force a city referendum requiring a new investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Center. But why?

The purpose of this referendum is to prove that US government agents, not Al Qaeda, was responsible for the destruction of 7 World Trade Center.

Now this guy is a major player on Jung’s payroll. As such, when announcing his candidacy, Jung bragged to the World Journal that the BrownMiller Group had joined his team and even told Korea Daily that Brown was advising Jung on political strategy. Oh, here we go.

But the devil is in the details, so follow the link. Although dubbed the “Highrise Safety Initiative,” the effort was funded by an organization called the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN).

According to NYS Board of Elections records, NYC CAN paid the BrownMiller Group $183,563 in five separate installments.

Ted Walters, NYC CAN’s Executive Director, said the ballot initiative was a way for conspiracy theories about the destruction of the World Trade Center to be “mainstreamed.” According to Walters, there “was a deliberate attempt on the part of FBI leadership to block” individuals “from finding out about the plot and preventing it.“ He also claimed “people in the government knew (about the attacks) and allowed it to happen…The collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7 were all demolitions…The alleged hijackers did not have the expertise to pilot the planes.” Yea, right.

NYC CAN is supported by Anti-Semites & Anti-Israel Bigots. But it’s not Walters’ crazy claims which should alarm you, BrownMiller has networked with an anti-Semitic coalition to further CAN’s radical agenda. Walters personally promoted the referendum on a podcast hosted by an Anti-Israel conspiracy theorist who claimed Israeli rescue workers were stealing organs after the Haitian earthquake. In addition, a variety of anti-Semitic websites, including the Iranian state-owned news service, promoted donations to and support for NYC CAN’s referendum, where it was described as “the most important group working to change history” and prove that Israeli agents were responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Support Network-6

The referendum was heavily promoted on anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and conspiracy websites and news outlets that claim that Israel was behind 9/11. In other words, the strategist leading Jung’s candidacy is also working on a project that is helping to unite an anti-Semitic movement behind a crazy ballot referendum in New York.

Even though NYC CAN believes 9/11 was conducted by US Agents, none of this however stopped Jung from paying BrownMiller, and it likely won’t.

This begs the question, is it possible for the CAN coalition to lobby Jung through the BrownMiller Group? Or even directly to him? What would stop them? After all, there is a clear path to access. Will the ballot initiative sail through with a special legislative liaison advocating on its behalf, now or later? Of course it’s all possible. When a candidate is elected, they take all of their interests, their supporter’s interests, and especially their baggage with them into office. Why would Jung prove any different?

Meanwhile, The Anti-Defamation League called Jones “the Conspiracy King” and referred to him as “anti-Israel conspiracy theorist” in 2010 after his website promoted the claim that Israeli rescue workers in Haiti were involved in stealing organs.

Luckily, de Blasio thinks it’s all a joke, and for good reason. He said the NYC CAN ballot proposal was “absolutely ridiculous… And it’s inappropriate, after all the suffering that went on 9/11 and since. It seems to be this is a very insensitive and inappropriate action.”

This is dangerous. Still, the BrownMillerGroup has influence over Jung, and they always will. The question becomes how much influence does CAN have directly on Jung? [See the dotted line on the diagram to illustrate the point]. Is this a chance you’re willing to take? Don’t fret, there is a bright side: this potential influence won’t amount anything if Jung loses the election and moves back to New Jersey. But my oh my, wouldn’t it be nice to have a dear friend in office, a friend with legislative authority and a budget?

The district where Jung is running contains one of the fastest growing Jewish communities in New York City, along with the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and approximately 20 synagogues. The district is also home to many police officers, firefighters, EMTs, and construction workers who responded to the disaster and helped in the recovery. Overall more than 250 Queens residents died on 9/11.

So think twice about casting your ballot for SJ Jung, things are not what they appear to be.

Messer Steps Aside, Focuses On Renewable Energy

John Messer, Queens Campaigner

Messer says Peace I’m out y’all

We have confirmation, the primary for SD16 will be a one-way race: Toby Stavisky vs. S.J Jung.

Defying speculation, in a press release sent this evening, attorney John Messer officially declared he will sit this one out for good.

“Renewable energies, like solar and wind power, have been important to me because they reduce our carbon footprint and help to protect our communities.”

Messer explained that his company, Invictus Energy Solutions, has been on the front lines reducing dependence on foreign oil and carbon-based fuels — a commitment he would to like to see through  to its completion.

“In an effort to improve our air quality, my company is in the process of implementing a significant project to replace these carbon based diesel generators with solar-powered alternatives which will run off the sun’s pure renewable energy. Queens shouldn’t be getting a failing grade for air pollution when every hour the sun beams enough energy onto our planet to satisfy our global energy needs for an entire year. Over the next several years, I want to work with you to bring renewable energies to our community, improve the quality of our air, our failing grade, and the overall health of our community.”

Meanwhile racial politics will still be in play, and in all likelihood Toby Stavisky will still be the victor. After all, she’s the most visible; a staple in the Flushing community and she has the proven ability to trounce her opponents, but like many districts, only a small percentage of the electorate actually show up for critical primaries – and those that do have proven over and over that they favor Toby Stavisky. So with Messer out, the “primary vote” will be safe for Senator Stavisky putting S.J in a perpetual uphill climb: registering new voters and pulling them out on election day, which is not as easy as it sounds epecially when voters doubt a challenger’s ability to trounce an incumbent of this magnitude. Furthermore, Stavisky also has enough clout in many sections of the Asian community to bridge the tribal nature of local politics, a bridge that may prove too long for S.J, even if he has some IDC help along the way.

No word on an endorsement yet.
