I just read this article about Maggie The Freeloader.

Do you believe it. She left Netcong where she dumped her poor kids on anyone and everyone and now she is in the newspaper taking more handouts.

I am happy for the kids but I sure as hell hope people don't give Maggie money because those kids won't see a dime of it.

Maggie manufactured sooo many lies to get a free handout (God forbid she should work) that I don't know where to begin.

She has dumped her kids at my house and drove away before I could catch her. She never leaves a phone number, emergency contact or her current address in Budd Lake so the kids are left until she decides to come back for them.

The people who helped her should be commended but she should be ashamed for lying. The time line doesn't even match.

I am glad for her kids (poor darlings) but she deserves a kick in the ^ss.

when she lived in netcong she was my neighbor. she was so horrible to her kids. they were so afraid of her. she treated them like sh^t. she is an egotistical maniac.

she would leave those kids with anyone at anytime for as long as she possible could to get them out of her hair.

i am glad the kids got toys and gifts. i hope she doesn't sell them after christmas is over.

i was happy to see the kids smiling in the newspaper pictures. it is the very first time i ever saw them happy.

Yeah, I agree the kids deserve some happiness. She was on her best behavior when they went to her house for the story. As long as those kids are with her and no cameras are around, they don't stand a chance. They are her ticket to state aid. She uses and abuses the system including the church. She should be ashamed. She could get a job. Walmart is always hiring. So there is no excuse. When I saw this story, I couldn't believe what I was reading. There are so many people out there that could use it more than Ms. Maggie. User and loser!!!

You would always see her in Quick Check buying Cigarettes. That money should go to the KIDS!! The kids should always come first. Disgraceful!!
What BS

What BS. Her kids didn't get bullied. She was having problems with her landlord. That is the reason why she moved. She has some nerve.

There were so many families in Netcong who took her kids under their wings. She should be grateful to each an every one of them. What an ungrateful loser!!

Maggie The Maggot McMasters is all over the forums in Netcong, Budd Lake and Mt. Olive.

No one has one nice thing to say about her because she is such a disgrace.

Those poor kids.

She even used them to con the Daily Record.

I wonder if Maggie The Maggot was on Craig's List trying to sell her kids to the highest bidder and came upon another way to make a fast buck by bullsh^ting the Daily Record and all the other kind souls who do not know her personally.

She is the bottom of the Maggot Barrel.

You are a bit harsh but right on the money. I have seen her on many occasions dropping her kids off in the Wiltop area. I feel sorry for the kids. It is a hard situation because you want to help the kids but you don't want to be responsible for them while she is MIA.

She sured did flimflam the Daily Record but if the kids got something out of it ... good for them.

I heard she dropped her kids off one day recently and one of them ended up with a severe eye injury. I blame maggie mac. Doesn't she take any responsibility for what happened to the poor child. These children need guidance. What kind of mother does this? This is child neglect!!!

Yup this is absolutely right she dropped them off and the woman whose house she droppped them off at did not know they were there until this "accident" took place and the little boy was injured pretty severly and now it soounds like maggie is probably going to sue that persons homeowners and will try to walk away with a nice chunk of change!!! And as usual at the expense of her children!!! And if that woman does get sued believe me there will be a lot of people who can attest to how she just unloads her kids and takes off and there is not a home owners attorney or an insurance company that will not fight to the end to make sure this woman does not get a dime!!! They will prove neglect, child abanonment and whatever else they need to in order to not pay out to this woman!!! But thats what happens when you dump your kids and do not keep your eye on them. They get hurt or god forbid worse!!! And if anyone is going to try to use Geri basciano as a scapegoat because they have issue on top of issue well they will get it when they are not looking !!!

A well-meaning friend just told me about this blog; and I must assure you that I have never reponded to a single one of the meanest and most vile comments about me in other blogs. Apparently, something was written in my name...I don't know - I can't even find it.

I will, however, respond now and defend myself only once:

As for the jabs at my motherhood - Have you MET my beautiful children? It is no accident that they are as beautiful and well-adjusted as they are. We have a warm and happy home; and they certainly are not afraid of me! And, yes, I did often drop them off to play with their friends. I was, at no time MIA. I kept in touch frequently as their friends can attest. Furthermore, no one has ever "fed and clothed" my children. Come on people, really!

Regarding the article in the paper: First of all, I am not a scammer! I responded to a post on Craigs List that was asking for a story of people who've been struggling lately. On a whim, I decided to share my life experiences with them. My essay was not geared toward the fire - that's just the slant that the DR used for their article. In no way, shape or form did I lie or scam anyone. I was the "lucky winner". I have never begrudged anyone else's happiness. If you own your own home - great! If you have a happy marriage - even better!

As far as people saying "don't give her money" - What exactly are you implying? I take very good care of my children. They are healthy, content and secure in this world. No, it hasn't been easy; and yes, I have made mistakes OF COURSE!!! Who hasn't - especially a mother!

This blogging crap is like road rage. People think they're anonymous behind a potential vehicle of destruction and will treat their fellow human beings with disregard and callousness. I intend to enjoy the beautiful tree and decorations that the Valle's have so graciously given us and as open heartedly as they have intended....So farewell, pray hard and enjoy a beautiful Christmas season. I'll see you all at Mass on Sunday!
Oh please

Oh please, you're not kidding anyone. You've already showed your spots Maggie... can't change them now. People know you and your motives. I just hope your kids don't pay for your neglect. It may even be too late. An eye injury is extremely serious. Again, it's called NEGLECT. May God Bless the Children.

You have disgraced yourself because you hide behind the church and your children ... and you use them both. The blogs hit a nerve with you Maggie because you thought you had EVERYONE FOOLED. Well now you know that you never had anyone fooled and that they put up with your terrible behavior because of your children. I pray to Our Lord everyday that you will see the errors of your ways ..... it would appear Our Lord has finally answered my prayers. Because of this forum, you have a chance to take the high road with your children and society. Now I will prayer that you put your children before yourself for once in their life. May God Bless You and give you a Chance To Make Amends.

Going to mass does not make you a good christian or a good mother ... that has been proven many, many times and you once again are proof. You treat you children like objects that can be moved around and shoved aside at your will and for your benefit. You have used peopled. You use people. You probably always will ..... BUT NOT IN NETCONG ANYMORE.

Are you kidding??? Do you think we are all that stupid?? so let me guess someone stole your post name to use it to attack a perfectly innocent person and make it look like you did it??? Yea OK you expect us to believe that or is this some twisted game you are playing Maggie??? And if this person who is impersonating you and making you look so bad knows your post name then you definitely know who they are too!!!! So you must be pretty pissed that someone is trying to tarnish your reputation and if that's the case give up who that person is right here right now because what do you have to lose this person is obviously not your friend AT ALL right???? And on top of all the other things that have been uncovered about you do you really want this thrown on the pile also??? So redeem yourself show us who this person is if it wasn't you and for once in your life do the right thing!!! You know the people who had the outstretched hands out to you and your kids and who those hands belonged to and one of them was Geri Basciano so show that it WAS NOT YOU THEN that is bashing her!!! Because i am sorry but this is too coincidental and there are too many holes in this story for any of us to believe you so if you don't want to have yet another "tragic" situation attached to your name then tell us who the person is that wrote that because we know you HAVE to know who it is!!!! And if you do not then we know its you playing a game and just trying to back pedal now!!!
