Modern Orthodox developer Shalom Lamm's attorneys made a motion this morning to try to force Sullivan County Court Judge Stephen Schick to recuse himself from the election fraud case in the tiny village of Bloomingburg, the Times herald-Record reported.
John Ciampoli, one of Lamm’s attorneys, claims to "evidence" of posts on websites made by Judge Schick's wife against Lamm, Lamm’s 396-unit Satmar townhouse development, and what the Times Herald -Record calls “the community.”
Schick has reportedly denied that motion for recusal.
Lamm has repeatedly claimed anti-Semitism is behind the widespread opposition to his development.
However, Lamm and his company, Black Creek Development, allegedly lied to town officials, intentionally misled, and bribed a sitting town official, and Black Creek’s spokesman, Michael Fragin, continued to make made misleading claims on Zev Brenner’s radio show last week, including claiming that there are “two classes of voters” in Bloomingburg, everyone else and the hasidim.
Bloomingburg had no known hasidic or Orthodox residents until just before the town election earlier this month.
A number of Satmar hasidim used Lamm’s buildings as their home address and tried to vote for Lamm’s candidate for mayor.
One small property alone reportedly had 20 Satmar voters.
Bloomingburg’s election law stipulates a mandatory 30 day period of residency before voting.
Locals claim the many of the hasidim did not meet that requirement, with some only spending one night in the town.
Lamm himself claimed to be a resident of Bloomingburg for “more than two years.”
But a court document in an unrelated case first published by FailedMessiah.com clearly states that Lamm’s resides in West Hempstead, New York – many miles from Bloomingburg.
Lamm’s office and many properties he owns in the village were raided by the FBI earlier this month.
