Now we shall see if someone sues to have him removed from the Hoboken Housing Authority...it is unfortunate that Brian Stack allowed Garcia to run on his ticket and this is a very black eye for Mr. Stack...I am sure he would not have been his choice if he realized what a knucklehead Garcia was in recording a conversation with the mayor's husband. just dumb a move by Garcia?
