West New York Mayor Sal Vega continues to assail Brian Stack’s political allies. Today he’s calling for the Hudson County Board of Elections to be fire Freddy Gomez for pressuring hair salon owner Angie Espinal to sign an affidavit taking her name off the ballot.
Gomez, Espinal’s landlord, allegedly visited Espinal’s apartment and had her copy down a sentence he had written on a post-it note on to an affidavit. It read that she was "out the state on that day.
“An official Board of Elections investigator who encourages someone who can’t speak English to falsify an affidavit — writing out lies for her in a language that she does not speak — should not be working in an official capacity for the Board of Elections,” said Vega.
