HUDSON COUNTY -- Numerous signatures on petitions to recall West New York Mayor Sal Vega were disqualified Monday including -- in two instances -- names of people who are actually dead, according to the town clerk.

Carmela Riccie noted in her report that Ricardo Martinez appeared to have signed the petitions but has been deceased since Oct. 12, 2006.

Another petition was signed by Pedro Costales, whom Riccie stated in her report "has been deceased for two years according to the Statewide Voter Registration Databse."

The petitions were circulated on behalf of Dr. Felix Roque, who has been protesting the tax increase in West New York.

Vega is up for regular election in 2011.

The person Riccie claimed to be dead was found very much alive and t.o.'d at being removed from the rolls. I don't know what Riccie is pulling, but this is bogus.

Dead people are very active in New Jersey politics, not only do they sign petitions but they vote too.
