You may have come across the article in the Courier News this evening where it was revealed that Jerry Green says he did not utter the obscenities he was caught on video as having said.
Somehow during this whole re-opened Jerry Green fiasco, I was never contacted. I am the person who released the footage, and yes, I did edit it down that day to something shorter that focused on the Assemblyman, the only public figure on camera.
Months later, I still have the original camera phone videos sitting in a folder called “Jerry Tirade” on my computer. They are time stamped November 5, 2013, 7:58 AM and 7:59 AM. It pays to hold onto things.
I have no idea why Ricky Williams would sign an affidavit, at the request of Mr. Green apparently, saying that the politician did not say the things he so clearly pronounced. Statements under oath are taken seriously.
I am even more clueless why Jerry Green would bring up a video that most of us have almost forgotten, right around election time. This video was old news. Be that as it may, this was Jerry Green on election day last November, in its entirety.
As the Plainfield City Council submits video of Mayor Mapp on PCTV to the ethics committee, they ought to also submit this, too.
Should any members of the media like to obtain the original files, I’d be happy to send them your way. Please email email@example.com. Youtube reduces quality somewhat, the originals are even clearer.
