Another NJ Democrat who didn’t pay his taxes

And yes, he’s one of Lesniak’s boys. Worked for Cory Booker too. They keep company with the best kind of Democrats. Paying taxes is for the little people, not guys like Hiver Ambroise.

He appeared to be a young upstart, building sway in the state Democratic Party, at one time working as chief of staff for Sen. Raymond Lesniak of Union County.

He even appeared in the award-winning 2005 documentary, “Street Fight,” about the no-holds-barred 2002 Newark mayoral race between Cory Booker and Sharpe James.

And Hiver Ambroise is listed on 2010 payroll records for Empower Newark, a political action committee with close ties to Booker, who is now the mayor. What’s more, federal authorities say, Ambroise was paid handsomely as a Democratic consultant to Union County-based political and election committees in 2008 and 2009, making $144,000 one year, $109,000 the next.

But he never filed income tax returns for either year — or for the $28,000 he made as a political consultant in 2010.

Today, Ambroise, 36, pleaded guilty in federal court in Newark to failing to file tax returns from 2008 to 2010 and bilking the government out of $80,000 to $200,000 in tax money.

But of course the important thing is that we haven’t seen the tax returns from Mitt Romney’s first paper route. Because paying taxes is only important for Republicans. Democrats get a pass.


Because people don’t laugh at New Jersey enough already…

The New Jersey State Senate wants to ban in-state football games with replacement refs.

Yes, really.

Just hours after his beloved Green Bay Packers were victimized by a blown call, State Senate President Steve Sweeney announced that he wants to block replacement referees from working professional football games in New Jersey.

In a statement issue this morning, Sweeney (D-Gloucester) said he plans to introduce legislation prohibiting the playing of professional sporting events with replacement officials, citing the potential for increased injury by inexperienced referees who cannot control a game.

His team lost, so there oughta be a law!

Sweeney’s a union man. The refs are a union. So let’s make the scab refs illegal. That’ll teach the NFL who’s boss.

The #VRWC Report, Cory Booker channels Joe Bidenopoulos, Lamont Sanford for President, and Obama 3:16

The guy is new but the song remains the same. In his DNC speech Cory Booker channeled Joe Bidenopoulos: Raising Taxes Is Patriotic!

The things you learn listening to Michelle Obama. Barack loves dumpster diving. Got his first coffee table out of the trash, he did. He’s kinda like Lamont Sanford, without Fred to watch his back.

Also from the Michelle Obama money quote file, being president reveals the true Barack. For varying definitions of “true”, of course.

For the Democrats so loved the world, that they gave their only begotten Dear Leader, that whosever voteth for him should not perish, but have everlasting entitlements. — Obama 3:16

No wonder then that they dropped God from their party platform. Obama is their shepherd, thou shalt hove no other gods before him.

Lies, damned lies, and Democrats: a recap of DNC Charlotte Day 1.

Our greatest fear is not four more years of Obama. Our greatest fear is a citizenry which desires four more years of Obama.

The NFL kicks off its regular season tonight, a day early so Barry can address the DNC (albeit in a small venue, slightly larger than a broom closet) without having to compete with anything interesting on TV. So at the risk of starting a shooting war with Theo and his mates, here’s video proof of why American football is truly the greatest game ever invented by man.
