Bye Bye Clancy, Hello girlfriend

Bergenfield Democratic Municipal Chairman Kevin Clancy, whose allegedly forged resignations of County Committee members unwilling to back his candidate became the subject of fraud charges in the 37th district State Senate Special Election Convention, resigned his post last night. He is to be replaced, at least for now, by former Councilwoman Elaine Rabbitt — a current Council candidate, and according to published reports, Clancy’s live-in girlfriend. The troubled Clancy was once Mayor of Bergenfield and resigned after pleading guilty to drunk driving; charges that he attempted to bribe a police officer were dropped as part of a plea agreement. Rabbitt, the Vice Chairwoman, has sent out two letters announcing a special election to select a new Municipal Chair. One sets the date as October 3rd, at the 16 Chovet Terrace home he shares with Rabbitt; the other on October 6th at the Coopers Pond Park Field House. READ P.S. Important warning — This e-mail came from Wojciech Siemaszkiewicz, the Bergenfield Republican Club President: “I received information that an authorized press released has been sent to you signed as the Bergenfield Republican Club. Please do not post this release as it was not approved by the BRC for release.” P.S.S. Update from Wojciech Siemaszkiewicz: We confirmed that no press release was sent out. Can you remove my statement about such press release from the Inside Edge? Thank you.
