After losing the coveted "Column One" position in Bergen County and filing a campaign receipts and expenditures report with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) in April that showed his campaign was deep in debt and not raising enough money to sustain itself, candidate John McCann apparently sent out an SOS to his friends and colleagues. They responded in a big way.
A former Democrat candidate for Mayor of Bogota (Bergen County) stepped forward to accuse McCann's opponent of saying some pithy things about him a decade or so ago. McCann's campaign neglected to fully vet this Democrat (who they, oddly enough, describe as a "Christian conservative"), who recently attacked the policies of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
Now liberal Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace (D-38) -- described by some as one half of the New Jersey Legislature's LGBT caucus -- shuffles up and gets into the act of defending McCann by attacking his opponent in the June 5th Republican primary. It is important to remember that it was Assemblyman Eustace -- affectionately known by some as "Brother Eustace" (or, as "Major Eustace" by others -- on account of his dashing, British-officer mustache) -- who led the early skirmishes in 2016 against then incumbent Congressman Scott Garrett, who went on to be defeated by Josh Gottheimer in the 5th District.
During one of his recent re-election efforts, it emerged that Brother Eustace had an unresolved issue. A check of the incumbent Assemblyman's name on the New Jersey Court's public ACMS website, indicated that there were are two "active" (at the time) judgments against a Timothy J. Eustace:
A search of the details reveals that two civil cases filed in Bergen County are connected with these judgments. They are dockets DC-624821-89 and DC-625025-89. These cases refer to civil actions taken by the Leonard Shaw Bail Bond Agency against Timothy J. Eustace of 453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607.
453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607, is the same address used by Assemblyman and candidate Timothy J. Eustace. Could the Timothy J. Eustace with the two outstanding judgments be Assemblyman Timothy J. Eustace?
Who is the other party in the case? Who or what is the Leonard Shaw Bail Bond Agency? Well, they are now known as Kirk Shaw Bail Bonds. The company website advertises that they are "directly across from the Bergen County Jail" and have "24-hour service." Here is a look at their website:
Who uses a bail bond company? To explain that, here is a video by a well-known New Jersey attorney:
So what we have here are two outstanding judgments against a Timothy J. Eustace, by a bail bond company. These relate back to two civil cases in which, apparently, Timothy J. Eustace owed something to the bail bond company. This could relate back to a criminal case, for which the bail was needed.
Now it is important to understand that these court records are maintained by the same entity that has taken it upon itself to dictate the education funding formula in New Jersey. These people are idiots, so there is every possibility that the Court's records -- just like the Court's judgments -- are full of crap.
Of course, Assemblyman Timothy J. Eustace of 453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607, can probably set the record straight. So, Brother Eustace, if you would like to, we'd be happy to.
