McGuire gets livid at senior center visit

McGuire gets livid at senior center visit

HACKENSACK – Sheriff Leo McGuire, known for his animated speeches, may have gone beyond his ebullient self yesterday speaking to a group of seniors in Ridgefield Park.

When Republican candidates Kathe Donovan, who is running for county executive, and Michael Saudino, who is running for sheriff, showed up to speak with the seniors, McGuire blew his lid, according to the Republicans.

“How embarrassing, ladies and gentlemen, for these people in here politicizing your senior center,” Republican Freeholder Rob Hermansen, who also stopped by, said he heard McGuire tell the crowd.

Hermansen said he was also a victim of McGuire’s tongue-lashing.

McGuire said the Republicans crashed a “county-funded senior center” to politick.

Sheriff campaigns hit the courtroom: Facebook, self-inquiry, and a man in uniform

Sheriff campaigns hit the courtroom: Facebook, self-inquiry, and a man in uniform

A judge agreed today that Bergen County Sheriff Leo McGuire was right to remove a link from his department's official website to his personal Twitter page, which touted a campaign golf outing fundraiser. The judge said the link must stay down.

McGuire’s opponent, Emerson Police Chief Michael Saudino, filed a suit alleging the link was a violation of election laws prohibiting the use of public resources for campaigning.

The Democrats claimed an auto-feed sent the golf outing info from his Facebook account, to his LinkedIn account, to his Twitter account, which appears on the official sheriff’s office website.

“Clearly he’s using public resources for private gain,” Saudino attorney John McCann said today. “He’s refusing at this point to take his Facebook down. I didn’t hit (the Facebook account) hard in my brief (…) Do I have to file another lawsuit?”

For Saudino, allegations of spousal abuse from 1988 divorce die hard

For Saudino, allegations of spousal abuse from 1988 divorce die hard

Emerson Police Chief Michael Saudino is revving up his race against Bergen County Sheriff Leo McGuire, fueled by an internal poll that has him only three points behind the popular McGuire and by endorsements from the chiefs and the rank and file – the Bergen County Police Chiefs and PBA.

But just like a cockroach, some bad news just refuses to die. Leave it to politics to keep the roach on life support.

Just as over the summer when he faced former ATF agent Dominick Polifrone, court documents from Saudino’s 1988 divorce proceedings from his former wife, Linda, are being circulated by unknown sources.

In a complaint filed by his then-wife, she alleges “extreme cruelty” at the hands of Saudino, including physical and mental abuse.

Linda Saudino has since penned two affidavits to the contrary, stating that the inflammatory comments were “the product of an attorney angling for the best and fastest results.”

quote of the day

"In many ways, Fulop has embraced McGreevey’s granular-level approach to retail politics, racing around the state to raise money for congressional candidates in South Jersey one night, showing up at a Morris County Democratic Party function the next. His administration has also awarded legal work to Weiner Lesniak, the Parsippany-based firm run by state Sen. Ray Lesniak, the Union County Democratic Party power broker." - columnist Charles Stile
