|The report below documents the case that Beth Mason exceeded campaign |
contribution limits in the matter of Tim Occhipinti's November 2010 campaign.
Below is a report I compiled on the contributions I was able to track from Beth Mason's contribution via personal and committee to Tim Occhipinti's fall 2010 campaign for 4th Ward City Council. Many people felt that Beth Mason's contributions were wheeling and while legal seemed to circumvent the personal limits of campaign laws. After digging further the Hoboken Journal has reached the following conclusions in the report below:
Conclusions on Beth Mason and her Donations to Tim Occhipinti Fall 2010
1. Personal Limits OK: Beth and Ricky Mason each gave $2,600 toward Tim Occhipinti's campaign and that was within the legal limits for individual contributors at $2,600 per person. The total was $5,200 for both of them.
