WILD ... WIFE OF
COUNTY DEMOCRAT CHAIRMAN RON RUFF
"Hurley in the
Morning" has learned and confirmed that Patricia Wild has
completed the required four (4) way background check required to be considered
for a New Jersey Superior Court Judgeship.
I have further confirmed that Wild's
potential appointment presently sits on Governor Jon Corzine's
What an early test this will be for
Jim Whelan. Ron Ruff has been waiting for this for two years. What will Whelan
do? Ruff is no doubt going to remind Whelan with the proverbial "You owe me
Jim ... I helped deliver 5-6 million dollars to make you Senator!"
Would Whelan dare exercise the
enormous power of Senatorial Couresy? Thereby denying his own Party Chairman's
wife a coveted appointment ... which would basically set Wild's employment for
the rest of her life?
What an ultimate political trap play
this is for Whelan! There are simply no good options.
If he blesses this political
appointment, he is immediately paying back Camden County ... which was the big
charge against Whelan during the recent campaign ... that Whelan would be
beholden to Camden County political power brokers.
What a great and deliciously
ironic first test this will be.
If Whelan blocks the nomination ...
then his own political party chairman will be on the war path against
Ron Ruff has taken a lot of slings
and arrows ... and smiles about it all the way like Bad Santa Claus ... Because
he no doubt felt that a Whelan victory would surely open up this cushy and
coveted appointment for his wife.
Now, get ready ... because the
Democrats are gonna say that Harry Hurley is lying ... so, I am asking you
to help me smoke this one out.
Please just ask Jim Whelan
and Ron Ruff a few simple questions:
NOTE: Patricia Wild has completed her 4
way background check. For the record, I'm sure that she meets the basic
requirements for the job. This is by no means a personal attack. You may
recall that Patricia Wild was Dennis Levinson's Democrat opponent before she
dropped out of the race 4 years ago. Levinson went on to run unopposed. Levinson
basically ran unopposed again this year ... with Jim Mcgettigan staging the
worst electoral at large performance in Atlantic County history.
Here are 3 simple
1. Ask Whelan and Ruff ... Is
Patricia Wild being considered for a Superior Court Judgeship? A simple YES or
2. Did Patricia Wild complete the
required 4-way background check? Again, a very simple YES or NO
3. Is Patrica Wild's potential
nomination sitting on Governor Jon Corzine's desk right now?
These are very simple questions and
I have already vetted the correct answers out for each of these questions. The
correct answers are: YES, YES and YES!
You have to wonder how thoroughly
qualified, real local folks like Norman Zlotnick, Jeff Waldman and others
feel about constantly being overlooked for outsiders. Patricia Wild and Ron Ruff
are from Camden
