Mayor Fight, Wrongful Convictions, Football – Monday’s Roundup

Print More

Everybody’s reporting that City of Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam and Councilman Jeffree Fauntleroy scuffled with some unidentified persons outside the Golden Nugget over the weekend.

Well, not everyone is reporting that. Harry Hurley’s reporting that the mayor punched a female security guard.

Hurley, who broke the news or something, said “MULTIPLE IMPECCABLE SOURCES HAVE EXCLUSIVELY REPORTED” there were videos of Mayor Gilliam “punching and choking a female Security Officer.”

“Without fail…we always break a major news item while at Disney World,” Hurley said. “This time…we’re breaking this major news while riding the Magical Express…minutes from our Resort.”

Anyway. David Danzis at the Press says they reviewed a video (perhaps the video), ten minutes long, and it showed something quite different, but you can read that for yourself.

Lynda Cohen reports that complaints were signed by two male employees and one female employee of the casino.

Wrongful Convictions
Two wrongful conviction cases could lead to big reforms in how prosecutors handle such claims, SP Sullivan reports. The New Jersey AG sent out a letter to the counties on Friday.

Spirit-St. Joe’s Rematch
Holy Spirit beat Hudson Catholic in the mud in the football Friday night. They play St Joe’s for the state championship December 1. How weird two Atlantic County teams play each other and they have to go to East Rutherford to do it. In other news, I am old and grouchy.

For more feats of journalism…
