Amy Zanelli is running for Magisterial District Judge in West Bethlehem and Fountain Hill. I told you yesterday that she was employed in Somerset County, NJ, as an intake workers on complaints of child abuse and neglect. But she was fired in 2012 for taking off too much and lost an appeal. She later got a job in Northampton County's Children and Youth Department, but failed to last through her probationary period.
She never bothered mentioning these terminations when she spoke with a fawning Josh Popichak in February. What she did do is embellish her role as a social worker.
"My ability to see things others didn't led me to go into investigative work on a state level for the State of New Jersey," she told him. "I specialized in sex crimes and homicides and abuse and neglect for children ... ."
She made herself sound like she some sort of super detective. In reality, she was a caseworker
She also claimed she was forced to move here because she was a target in New Jersey.
