“We are raising money to help clear Michael’s name and bring the criminals responsible to justice,” Nicole DeFusco, Mike’s sister, wrote in a lengthy GoFundMe description.

“We are offering a reward for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons behind this attack on both Michael and Ravi’s good names. We all deserve to know the truth about to who was behind the fliers: our democracy depends on it.”

She has set a goal of $15,000 and has already raised $6,405 as of 11:00 a.m. this morning.

In the late evening hours of Friday, November 3rd, days before this past Tuesday’s long awaited mayoral contest in Hoboken, the “terrorism” flyer was distributed on car windshields, receiving heavy media coverage from across the world on Saturday.

All four major mayoral candidates, including DeFusco, denounced the flyer and said it was not reflective of Hoboken’s values. While the flyer said it was paid for by DeFusco, he adamantly denied that he had anything to do with the vile campaign literature.

Bhalla ended up besting DeFusco by 484 votes, 5,041 to 4,557, according to final tallies from the Hudson County Clerk’s Office.

As of this writing, none of the mayoral campaigns have taken responsibility for the flyer.

However, as Hudson County View first reported, the Hoboken Police Department has released a short video and photos of one of two men suspected of distributing the flyers.

The Hoboken Police Department has not provided any further updates on the case as of Saturday morning.

      • I am a pawn of Dawn Ravi and Stan. I just blog what they tell me and rarely check facts. Most of the time I make crap up. When I am out of ideas I go to the personal attack. I am Nancy Nutters Finkster master blogger.

        I fired the first shot and started in on a personal attack on Kurt but yet I am a victim. I said Kurt needed a blow up doll which is Feminazi for attacking men for their lack of virility. Yet I am ok with Stan calling other women in power stupid just for asking good questions. Then Kurt turned the joke on me and after years of dishing it out, I proved I could not take it and I am a sexist hypocrite. Get me a Whambulance! Wah!

        I won. I won. But why I am I still whining? Is it because I backed a team that so sought the Mayoral seat I lost the council majority? So much for stupid Stan being a strategic thinker.

        I am the most toxic blogger in Hoboken history. I am even more toxic than Perry Klaussen in his heyday. I have no clue how many people have no respect for me now. I sit in a cave waiting directives from the Shadow.

  1. Maybe if Ravi would stop shopping this flyer with Mike’s name forged on it, DeFusco could drop it. But Bhalla is now exploiting it.

    Bhalla and his online bullies are the biggest bunch of SORE WINNERS this town has ever seen.

    • Oh Ravi’s brother…. please, don’t be surprised if that guy gets a job in city hall too.
      Let’s not forget the rumors/stories where Ravi was pushing for a cleaning contract for a relative back when zimmer won. Imagine now as Mayor. Maybe his brother will be the new library director… oh wait he promised that to someone else…

  2. Ravi is working really hard to find the culprits who called him a terrorist. He’s been on MSNBC about 4 times, WABC, ABC, CBS and CNN.
    GEE he really is putting politics aside and working to help- except when Reporter David Navarro on WABC7 asked if he would add to the reward Ravi came up with some obscure legal excuse that only the state police can offer rewards. – Good thing Bhala hates dogs, because if his ran away- he would have to tell his kids that Daddy can’t offer a reward for their puppy.

  3. Bzzzzzzzz Bzzzzzz bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. 24/7 Jen Jen Jen …. DeFusco….DeFusco….DeFusco….DeFusco…

    Sounds like Bajardi when he couldn’t stop talking about Dawn

    Stockholm Syndrome Avenger!

  4. There are additional suspects that distributed fliers on the Friday before the election. I went down to the HPD last Friday and reported that I had seen additional flier distributors on video at a local establishment. The police showed up within 15 minutes and grabbed a recording of the additional video. The additional suspects were featured on the New 4 Newscast feature the battle between Ravi Bhalla and Mike Defusco over the fliers.

    I am hopeful my lead helps the HPD get to the source of the fliers. Read more on my new website:
