Ms Iocovozzi and Ms Boucher are lying and know it. Ms Iocovozzi is flat wrong.A process server is supoosed to tell the person served wht it is they are being served with. She is a politician lookng to make an issue out of something that is not. It should not be a surpise. Democrats do it all the time to take away from the REAL issues. Just look a Obama

She has NO experience, the rest in non-sense.
He eyes were going to pop out on the news.
She would never be able to handle the office , it was obvious she was trying to be an actress.
Don't worry the guy with 10 years in the office will win.

Really, now, we have you recorded and documented with your unethical tactics. Your conversation about Ms Iocovozzi with a correctional officer is also documented. As far as you being impartial, you were not and you know it. We will see to it that you be held accountable.

also, for the uneducated here.... The document was never notarized. If you have ever looked at a petition you would know this, If you ever got signatures, then again, you would know this. If you ever looked into the laws regarding petitions you would also know, that changes can be made, as long as they are not done to the signature and date. You should also know that changes were also made to Mr. Carpenters petitions, again this was legal and within the scope of the law, just as Mary's were. Stop making this something that it is not. There was no alterations on either sides. Some changes were made and they were done legally. As far as I am concerned as a Republican, I will do a write in, both of these candidates and their Managers need to grow up. Both of them need to start being respectable. This is a serious position, so show us a more professional approach and maybe some of us will change our minds. As far as the rest of you posters, please get your facts right before you post foolish and untrue comments. Such as notorized petitions.

HERKIMER, N.Y.-- Three months before Herkimer County voters head to the polls to vote for their new district attorney, challenges against both candidates' petitions are dropped but controversy over the race remains.

Both candidates appeared in State Supreme Court in Herkimer County Monday. A registered voter along with Assistant District Attorney Jeff Carpenter, who's acting as DA until the position is filled, challenged petitions of Mary Iocovozzi, his Democratic opponent.

Issues cited included problems with some of the signatures and the addition of her P.O. Box address after voters had signed the petitions.

Iocovozzi says the addition wasn't made with fraudulent intent.

Carpenter says his concern is that legal documents were altered after being signed by voters and by those collecting the signatures.

"The whole legislative intent in that law is so that people know where you physically reside, if you have two homes where you physically reside. That's what that's all about," said Iocovozzi.

"She changed them. She added information to the petition itself, and that was the crux of our legal argument, and I think that's concerning for a candidate for district attorney," said Carpenter.

Carpenter's paperwork filed with the Board of Elections was also called into question.

A registered voter brought an order to show cause against Carpenter. It was alleged his petitions were insufficient and requesting certificates of authorization to run on the Conservative and Independence lines be declared null and void. But again, both cases were dropped.

You know, when this aired on the news I thought at first that it must be a big deal. I mean, surely the D.A. wouldn't sue someone for something trite - he's a busy man on the public payroll. Maybe Ms. Iocovozzi actually did something insidious on the petitions that would warrant a day in court. Then we found out that she added her P.O. box to the petitions on the advice of the elections commissioner. All of us watching just laughed. She's obviously a menace to our community. I eagerly await the next stupid election stunt.
Hmmmm

It was obvious she can't take any pressure, I thought she was going to either cry, faint , or her eyes were going to come out.
I must agree she is a menace.

Here is something for you to think about.

How much experience does Mary have in criminal law ?

How much experience does Jeff have in criminal law ?

How much hands on experience has Mary had in the DA's office ?

How much hands on experience has Jeff had in the DA's office ?

Would Mary crumble at a murder if she was called to get up and go at 3AM ?

I know it's alot of homework but take your time and be honest with yourself .

Jeff was pretty rattled and squirrely in that clip. I felt like telling him to get back to work. This stunt was all about causing trouble, plain and simple. Not impressive.

If you read the article from YNN , Mary started the stunt.
Jeff doesn't get rattled, didn't you see Mary's eyes pop out during her breakdow on TV.

Jeff

is a highly experienced DA and not someone who needs training wheels like Mary while she tries to settle a traffic ticket.
Amazing people would even consider their county's safety and not vote for Jeff.

I have no problem with speaking the truth. I did in fact speak to a correction officer. His name is Fred.
I told him the truth. That a NUMBER of your cronies did in fact attempt to or did in fact duck service or a lawful document.
Oh and incidently, how did I "intimidate" your cronies? So challenges were made to Mr Carpenter's petitions on the Conservative line. And? So what? I have no horse in this race. I LIVE in Oneida County?
Please hold me "accountable" (sic). It seems that you need to be held accountable. Let me put it this way. Have at it. My comments are not only true, but accurate. And for your information, from my understanding of the law, NO changes can be made to any document after it has been signed and nortorized. If such alteration occurs ABOVE the signatures of the petitioners or the Notarization, it is then invalid.
Nice try and thanks for playing.

And just maybe you should review the laws... YOU ARE WRONG.....The petitions are not NOTARIZED you Moran....Wow, and by the way it is a summons to appear as a witness from an Attorney, not from a judge. You look like a real hummer by the way, kinda like a shriek in a wanna be costume.. Really.. are you that un-educated. You make a bad name for all the good correctional officers out there.
Your a winner

Why would you even come on a site like this and post your name, If Jeff was such a stand up Lawyer then he should have advised you not to do it. Everything you post can and will be used against you...Duh..Some may think your remarks are slanderous and if they decide to go any further with this, you will be held accountable for your remarks. So you see you are not a very bright person. As far as your ethics go... well giving Mary your business cards and offering your services in the future was a brilliant move, then you come on here and bad mouth her. If she was that bad of a person, then why would you want to work for her ??? Advise, be smart and think about what you post, it will only come back and haunt you later.
