Fake Facebook Fallout: NYC Councilmember Kamillah Hanks in the Hot Seat
Kamillah "Skanks": From NYC Council to Rikers Line-Up?
NOTE: In August 2017, Richard Luthmann was “outed” for creating numerous “Fake Facebook” pages that lampooned NYC political figures. In 2018, a Crooked Special Staten Island District Attorney named Eric Nelson indicted and prosecuted him. The case against Luthmann is on the precipice of being thrown out. This series details the Fake Facebook case's legal and political backstory and its ramifications.
By Richard Luthmann
I recently wrote about Crooked Special Prosecutor Eric Nelson. He is incompetent by design.
He committed several felony crimes in pursuing Luthmann in the Fake Facebook case.
Eric Nelson is a stone-cold criminal.
I will continue to detail the legal fallout from the Fake Facebook case in other articles. Soon, we will document Judge Ronald Castorina’s perjury and Eric Nelson’s attempts to cover it up. We will discuss this corrupt and ongoing conspiracy where coverup crimes are still being committed before Brooklyn Judge Donald Leo.
This story treats some of the political fallout. Specifically, we will look at the problems Staten Island North Shore Councilwoman Kamilah Hanks will have because of her connection to creating Fake Facebook pages for political purposes.
Others, like Judge Ronald Castorina and Southshore Councilman Joe Borelli, will be covered in subsequent installments.
Kamillah Hanks Has Political Problems
Kamillah Hanks has big political problems at the moment. Recent polling tells the whole story.
When North Shore registered Democrats were asked if the North Shore Councilwoman was doing a good job, 78% said yes.
The next question was: “Who is the North Shore Councilwoman?”
The four choices were Kamillah Hanks, Amoy Barnes, Laura Sword, and Debi Rose.
Debi Rose got 63% of the vote. The others weren’t even close. And this was before Kamillah pissed off the entire County Committee and snubbed their chosen designee for the vacant NYC Board of Elections post: Debi Rose.
Kamillah Hanks’ biggest problem is that she’s not Debi Rose.
Another one of Kamillah’s problems is that she’s not politically astute. Her chief advisor, her “husband,” white millionaire real estate developer Kevin Barry Love, is an outright narcissist and a dumb one at that.
Kevin Barry thinks he is the smartest person in any room he walks into. He would walk up to Jenna Jameson and insist he knows more about fellatio than she does.
If Kevin Barry advised Kamillah to block Debi Rose’s appointment to the NYC Board of Elections, his density was revealed.
Placing Debi Rose on the Board of Elections would have effectively put her “on ice” politically. She would not have been able to run for office against Kamillah in 2025 (which is unlikely).
She also would not have been able to endorse or campaign for any candidate in 2025 against Kamillah in what now appears to be a heated and contested primary. If the rumors are true, the County Committee may not even carry Kamillah Hanks’ petitions in 2025.
“She made me! She can carry her own fucking petitions next time around,” was heard in the hallways at 250 Broadway.
As the polling shows, a Debi Rose endorsement makes any candidate a serious contender for the Democratic label in the North Shore District. The Debi Rose endorsement may be the most significant factor in that 2025 race.
Pee Wee Herman is dead. But even if he had Debi Rose’s endorsement, he would have a genuine shot at winning on Primary Day. Why? Because Debi Rose is more popular than Santa Claus on the North Shore. And if she didn’t know it before, Kamillah Hanks is learning the lesson very quickly.
Now Kamillah and Kevin Barry’s missteps are about to be compounded by echoes from her 2017 primary campaign against Debi Rose.
The Devil Goes A Step Too Far
Thanks to the McMahons, Rich Luthmann got picked up by the Feds in December 2017. He got “disappeared,” and for good reason. He had the goods on a court-fixing scheme to pad the DA’s stats. Cases and warrant applications were being assigned away from “defense-oriented judges.”
Luthmann, then a lawyer, represented the whistleblower wired up all over the courthouse. A trap door was sorely needed.
And a trap door was found with the Feds…a story for another day.
But the devil always goes a step too far. The Staten Island political class needed to “Get Luthmann” for his Fake Facebook antics. Luthmann must be punished for his “Reign of Terror.”
A special prosecutor was appointed with one goal: Get Luthmann.
The first special prosecutor appointed was criminal defense attorney Thomas A.Tormey, who saw Luthmann’s case as not prosecutable. He handed it back.
Crooked Eric Nelson was handed the case, and a selective prosecution began. According to his website, the man who collects back child support while in the shed down the block from the NYPD 120 Precinct had a blank check and carte blanche to “Get Luthmann” for crimes - real or imagined.
Crooked Eric Nelson’s prosecution was politically motivated, selective, and built on lies and crimes. The entire prosecution was political in nature. It focused on Luthmann’s political activities in several arenas with a focus on Fake Facebook:
Luthmann’s battle with former Staten Island Democrat Party leader John Gulino and his political allies
The 2015 Mike McMahon - Joan Illuzzi District Attorney election
The 2016 Ronald Castorina - Janine Materna Republican Assembly Primary
The 2017 Kamillah Hanks - Debi Rose Democrat NYC Council Primary
Once Luthmann was outed as the creator of the Fake Facebook pages and a Special Prosecutor was appointed, everyone knew that Luthmann didn’t act alone. Several Staten Island politicos knew what was going on. Some were Luthmann’s co-conspirators, solicited the Fake Facebook pages, and stiffed Luthmann for the political work.
And everyone knew it. In August 2017, the Staten Island Advance reported Debi Rose as saying:
"I urge the special prosecutor to obtain campaign communications between Hanks and Luthmann to determine if Kamillah Hanks is complicit in criminal campaign activity."
Debi knew it back then. Kevin Barry Love and Kamillah Hanks were Luthmann’s “Fake Facebook” accomplices.
And everyone else did, too. Ask anyone present in Kamillah Hanks’ 2017 campaign office what was going on when Luthmann walked into the building in June and July. The first thing said was, “Hey Baby!” a reference to the Fake Facebook page. Everyone knew.
Don’t take Luthmann’s word for it. Ask Scott Levenon, Diane Savino, Jayson Reynard, Michael Cox, Lok Yung, Jaclyn Tacoronte, Nadia Hanks, or any number of others who were around the campaign office.
And everyone also knew it was political satire.
Take a look at this post from July 15, 2017. The Debi Rose page attacked Debi Rose’s own petitions and a guy named Charles Fall, who was the Chief of Staff at the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation at the time.
Hey Baby! Fraud and Forgery in the Debi Rose / SI Democratic Party Petition?
Who is Charles Fall? He is the Chief of Staff at the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation in Staten Island.
He was formerly Mayor Bill DeBlasio's liaison for the Borough of Staten Island and the Muslim community citywide.
Before that, Charles Fall was the Deputy Executive Director of the Democratic County Committee working for County Chairman John Gulino.
Question: Does the signature on the Election Petition submitted to get Debi Rose onto the ballot match the signature on Charles Fall's registration card at the Board of Elections? You be the judge.
Is this another case of ELECTION FRAUD under Democratic County Chairman John Gulino's watch?
The handwriting experts say it's not even close. And if it's fraud, the authorities could get involved.
Why do John Gulino's candidates have to lie, cheat, and forge their way onto the Election Day Ballot?
Isn't it time for honest politics in Staten Island?
Let’s put aside the fact that the Fake Facebook is political satire and is First Amendment-protected political expression.
If Luthmann is a felon who went away to prison for three years for making Fake Facebook pages, it stands to reason that his co-conspirators were also criminals. But who would have been a co-conspirator?
A politician (or a judge) who commissioned a Fake Facebook site is a criminal if Luthmann is a criminal. And if that politician supplied pictures, that is active participation in a felony.
But even if a politician were not involved with Fake Facebook but knew all about it, wouldn’t they have to answer all sorts of political questions?
I will detail the involvement of politicians in Fake Facebook. Today, we talk about Kamillah Hanks. You can decide whether her activity was questionable, and she should pay a political price.
Luthmann To Sue Hanks, Love For Fake Facebook, Being Deadbeats
Kamillah Hanks is Luthmann’s Fake Facebook co-conspirator. And if Luthmann is a felon, Kamillah Hanks is a stone-cold criminal who never saw a day in Rikers’ Island.
I’ll present some of the proof, and you can decide. But remember, I won’t blow my entire load all at once. Luthmann has a lawsuit to prosecute against Hanks and Love for being deadbeats and stiffing him on over $87,000 in properly earned fees. To see everything, you’ll have to be an avid reader of this publication, where I promise I will publish the full transcripts of the upcoming depositions of ALL WITNESSES.
Luthmann first tried to sue Kamillah Hanks and Kevin Barry for debts they owed back in April of this year.
Genius Kevin Barry Love called the Feds and said Luthmann was harassing him and Kamillah. In so doing, Kevin Barry LIED to federal agents in the FBI, DOJ, and US Probation Department and said he and Kamillah were witnesses in Luthmann’s case.
Love also threatened Luthmann’s then-collections lawyers, engaging in conduct smacking of interstate menacing.
Because of Kevin Barry’s lies and interference with Luthmann’s collections lawyers, the Federal Probation Office told Luthmann he could not collect on the debts in April. Luthmann’s collections lawyers dropped the case and him without so much as a phone call.
Kevin Barry Love and Kamillah Hanks thought that they were in the clear. After all, Kevin Barry tosses around quarters like other people toss around manhole covers. He just beat Luthmann for $87,000 plus 9 percent statutory interest compounded since 2017. Or so he thought.
Earlier this month, Luthmann was permitted by the Federal Government to reinstitute his cases against Love, Hanks, the Hanks campaign, and others, including sitting Judge Ronald Castorina.
The Feds investigated what he said, and Kevin Barry now has a big problem because he lied to Federal Agents in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001, a felony crime.
In addition to contract claims, Luthmann now has tort and economic injury claims against Kevin and Kamillah for interference with the debt collection and his property rights.
“I’m going to sue the shit out of them. The time for diplomacy is long past. I wanted a quick business transaction. Now, Kevin called me mentally ill and menaced away my hand-picked lawyers. There is no deal. Unless they put the full amount plus interest on deposit with the court, there will be depositions. And I’ll be the one asking the questions,” Luthmann said.
Kamillah “Skanks”- A Disloyal Deadbeat Propped Up By A Clown
Luthmann calls Kamillah Hanks “Kamillah Skanks.” He also calls her “Queen Crime” because crime doesn’t pay, and neither does she or Kevin Barry. She has screwed many campaign workers and staff, trying to pay them pennies on the dollar instead of agreed-upon rates.
Luthmann was their friend and their family attorney. But as several others of their former friends know, Kevin Barry values friendships in terms of dollars and cents if he doesn’t need you, ten cents on the dollar - if that much.
Kevin Barry Love is a white millionaire real estate developer who has been angling to get Kamillah in office for years because he’s unelectable for dog catcher, particularly as a Democrat.
“Kevin Barry Love is pulling Kamillah’s strings, and he’s a closet Trump supporter. They are both white real estate developer assholes that don’t belong in politics. They belong in prison.” - Anonymous North Shore SI Democrat
Kamillah’s in the big time now. She’s not just on the NYC Council; she’s the Chair of the Public Safety Committee, thanks to NYC Council Speaker Adrienne Adams.
Kevin Barry was trying to sell access back in 2017. I heard him on the phone soliciting contributions from the Bay Street campaign office: “You know, if we get in, we’ll be able to take care of you. You’ll have access.”
That’s a quid pro quo. He was ready to do it back then, and no doubt he’s doing it now. None of it can be above board or Kosher.
Kamillah’s biggest political liability is Kevin Barry Love. He spends most days smoking pot and playing telephone tough guy. The activity invites a federal indictment.
I was so wrong about Kamillah Hanks as a person. When I was NYS Reform Party Law Chair, we gave her the 2017 ballot line. I thought she wanted to clean things up politically.
Instead, she’s the symbol of the uni-party machine and political grift at the expense of the constituents. I wish a community leader - from the right or the left - would take her out. I really wish Debi Rose were 30 years younger.
Kamillah Didn’t Pay For Her Daughter Nadia Hanks to Graduate
The biggest issue I have about Kamillah and Kevin is betrayal. I did a lot for them. The whole reason why I ran the Debi Rose Fake Facebook page for them was because I believed in them and trusted them. I trusted Kevin Barry’s word that I would be paid. I thought Kamillah and Kevin had good intentions.
I was their family lawyer. I helped Kamillah’s daughter Nadia graduate from LaGuardia High School. Kevin and Kamillah said they would pay me, probably from campaign funds. I was never paid.
I challenged Kamillah Hanks to produce a receipt or a canceled check for Nadia’s graduation lawsuit. They can’t because it didn’t happen.
The truth is, I paid the court costs and filing fees, and I was never reimbursed even for that.
Kevin Barry Love is running around telling people he paid for Nadia’s graduation and has the receipt. So, produce it, Kevin, and I’ll publish it. The receipt will be in YOUR COMPANY’S name, but this is not a business expense. The receipt will be for the BMW case I handled for you because you didn’t feel like paying the full value for your lease. And by producing that receipt for me, I can subpoena ALL your business and financial records in this lawsuit that I’m hitting you with.
Keep flapping your gums, genius. You make my life easy.
Kamillah Hanks and Kevin Barry Love Are Liars
Kamillah is a liar. But she and Kevin had to be when the Fake Facebook story broke. Better to lie than to be charged as a co-conspirator.
Kamillah lied to the NY Times and other news outlets when she had her then-representative say: “[Ms. Hanks] hired Mr. Luthmann only to help her get on the ballot.”
Kamillah’s then-spokesperson Jennifer Blatus (supplied by cookie-cutter consultant Scott Levenson) said, “Richard Luthmann was hired solely for the petitioning process and is not employed by this campaign.”
I was more than a simple “jobber.” I went from being at the campaign headquarters on Bay Street every day and having Kevin Barry, Scott Levenson, and Jason Reynard bogarting my weed and my schnaiz to becoming persona non grata. I was at their house in Stapleton all the time for dinner and drinks -until I wasn’t.
The NYC Campaign Finance Board (CFB) records show I was paid $1,650. Kamillah Hanks lied to the CFB about the costs paid and services rendered by me and others.
And make no mistake, Kamillah Hanks knew what was going on. She was worried about the CFB every second of the day:
Kevin Barry Love spends his days getting stoned and obsessing over the CFB, or as his resin-lined brain likes to call them, the “Elections Department.”
The numbers are even fugazi. In 2017, Luthmann got paid $1,650 “solely for the petitioning process.” In 2021, Howard Graubard got paid $10,000 for the same work. This was the same type of “underbilling” Scott Levenson got pinged for with Melissa Mark-Viverito by the NYC Conflicts of Interest Board. Kamillah Hanks should have to pay a hefty fine.
When we get to court, I will bring in Jerry Goldfeder, John Ciampoli, Sarah Steiner, Marty Connor, or another renowned and indisputable source to give expert testimony on prevailing rates for election law work.
In 2017, I did much more than the “petitioning process.” I coordinated getting Phil Marius thrown off the ballot.
Kamillah and Kevin agreed to have me do this work. They told me I was going to get paid. I had a pre-existing business relationship. I expended time and laid out money that I never got paid back.
Phil Marius got thrown off the ballot - from over 1,250 to below 450 valid signatures - at the Board of Elections. We didn’t even have to go to court, but we filed there, and I was ready to go.
Ask anyone in NYC politics. Knocking a City Council Candidate down from over 1,250 signatures to below 450 at the Board of Elections is nothing short of a Herculean feat. If we went to Court, I would have had him below 300 if I didn’t get the whole petition thrown out for fraud and Phil Marius charged with filing a false instrument.
Veteran political consultant Mike Cox and I did the Specifications of Objections. Jason Reynard sat there and got us paperwork and coffee. We spent over 100 hours between my office, back and forth to the Board of Elections, and related work.
Mike Cox got screwed too. In 2017, they promised him $14,000. They offered him $1,250. They paid him nothing.
The second I commence in NYS Supreme Court, I will ask the Court to Order Cox’s subpoena and deposition so that it is preserved. Cox is old school. He won’t say anything about a former client, even deadbeat former clients, absent a subpoena. But he will tell the truth. Ask anyone in Brooklyn politics.
I’ll probably wait until after Labor Day to let everyone enjoy the rest of their summer. After all, this could very well be Kamillah and Kevin’s last one together.
And Kamillah, Kevin Barry, Scott Levenson, and everyone else knew what was going on with Phil Marius:
Kamillah Hanks didn’t pay me for the days I spent working on the specific objections and the line-by-line. She didn’t pay for the gas, tolls, and copies at the NYC Board of Elections. She didn’t pay for the court filing. She didn’t pay for Don Frangipane, the handwriting expert from Brooklyn I retained. She didn’t pay for the private investigators and process servers I had to send out to set up the case. The costs here alone exceeded $10,000.
If I wasn’t paid or reimbursed, aren’t those undeclared in-kind contributions for CFB purposes?
But now I’m looking to get the money back (or, more precisely, the Feds are) if only to use it to pay federal restitution.
Question: Has anyone asked why Kamillah Hanks didn’t testify at the 2018 grand jury against me? Newsflash: I get a chance to ask her in this case. But I’ll tell you the answer.
Like Ron Castorina (whom we will treat exclusively in several forthcoming articles), I would have let the Kamillah Hanks thing go. But I became genuinely motivated by the Feds wanting their money and what I heard when I got out of prison.
Kevin Barry Love was bitching around to everyone that would listen in the summer of 2018 that I had cost him a “small fortune,” and I had “cost” Kamillah the 2017 election.
That was bullshit. Debi Rose won the election by 70% to 30%.
Kevin Barry Love tells anyone who will listen that he had to pay a boatload to fight Eric Nelson’s subpoena for the fake Facebook grand jury.
If Kamillah Hanks had nothing to hide, why would she fight the subpoena and pay tens of thousands to do so?
Unlike Ron Castorina, who decided perjury was politically expedient to obtaining a judgeship, Kamillah did not want to perjure herself. At least she has that going for her.
But Kevin and Kamillah still keep their narrative going that I was why she lost in 2017.
In reality, she lost because she’s a shitty candidate. She didn’t do the right mailings, had no Election Day pull operation, and overpaid for Scott Levenson’s “cookie cutter” campaign.
I had to hear from people on her own and other elected officials’ staffs that I was still being badmouthed in 2021.
Kamillah Hanks doesn’t deserve to be Staten Island’s North Shore City Councilwoman.
Kamillah and Kevin Barry are disloyal liars who are only out for themselves. They don’t pay their people and treat people the wrong way.
And let’s not forget - Kamillah is a Fake Facebook criminal. Even though she was never charged, she is still a criminal. You be the judge.
Ask Kamillah how she and Luthmann used to communicate over Facebook Messenger. Luthmann will when he gets to depose her under oath in a little while.
Ask Kamillah Hanks about “Cut It” from June 25, 2017, at 1:04 p.m. She was in the middle of the NYC Council Campaign against Debi Rose. The Fake Facebook page was live. Luthmann was running it.
And Kamillah Hanks knew all about it. She was feeding Luthmann ideas, content, and pictures to post”:
What exactly does “Cut It” mean? We’ll know soon enough at depositions.
It surely wasn’t “Cut It Out.” Kamillah Hanks was SENDING pictures to Luthmann to put someplace. Do you honestly believe it wasn’t the Fake Facebook page? Because that is exactly where the picture ended up.
Kamillah said Luthmann was hired for a limited ballot / petitioning job.
What does “Cut It” have to do with getting on the ballot?
“Cut It” sounds much more like an editing command. Like telling someone what to put on a webpage or a Facebook page. But Luthmann was never paid for that. We will find out soon enough when Kamillah Hanks is under oath.
Doesn’t that make Kamillah Hanks Luthmann’s co-conspirator in Dirty Politics and his colluder in Crime?
Why didn’t Kamillah Hanks appear at the 2018 Luthmann Grand Jury when Ron Castorina, Joe Borelli, Mike Ryan, Mike McMahon, and others did?
How much did Kevin Barry Love pay (“a small fortune”) to ensure that his “wife’s” political prospects remained intact?
We will know the answers to all these questions and more very shortly once subpoenas and depositions are issued and ordered.
And remember, “CUT IT” is just the tip of the iceberg of Luthmann’s evidence.
But to anyone with a brain, there are only three outcomes.
Kamillah and Kevin appear for depositions, admit their criminal complicity in Fake Facebook, and become political kryptonite.
Kamillah and Kevin appear for depositions, lie under oath, and commit more crimes.
Kamillah and Kevin place full face value of the lawsuit plus 9% statutory interest on deposit with the court, and Luthmann no longer has a legal avenue to pursue them.
Personally, I like 1 and 2, but 3 gets the taxpayers paid, too, so it’s not the worst result either.
Luthmann Expresses Remorse, Irish Amnesia, and Faith in the Truth
Luthmann stands by the Fake Facebook pages as protected political satire but expresses some moral regret about engaging in the practice.
“I deeply regret what I did and who I was in 2017. While I don’t believe the Facebook pages were legally wrong, I recognize they were morally wrong. I have attempted to make my personal amends to those I believe are deserving of an apology.”
Luthmann said he was sad he had previously attacked Debi Rose, Nicole Malliotakis, Charles Fall, and others, including John Gulino.
“Gulino and I got off on the wrong foot because of a court case in 2012. But for that, I think we could have been friends. He’s Sicilian, and he values respect above all things. The person I am now understands that. In retrospect, he served the Democratic Party well by building a strong judicial bench under his tenure as leader.”
But Luthmann was defiant when others, including the McMahons, were mentioned.
“Some people deserved exactly what they got from me. From what I hear, Mike McMahon isn’t a bad guy, and he’s a smart lawyer. But his wife is an unbalanced shrew who gets off on bullying and coercion. As long as there is a Fake Facebook case, I’ll never be done with them,” Luthmann said.
He continued, “I know for a fact that she has brazenly, unjustifiably, and illegally hurt people: criminal defendants, civil servants, journalists, and many others. And that is unforgivable for a New York State Supreme Court Justice.”
Luthmann admits that he would have a hard time letting certain grudges go.
“There’s a thing called ‘Irish Amnesia’ -you forget everything but the slight. It’s part of being a warrior. I inherited it from the Scotch-Irish clansmen and the German military men on my father’s side of the family. The tough Neapolitans and Sicilans on my mother’s side probably had something to do with it, too. All people that love and respect a good battle. But that is why we have faith to balance it out and focus our energies,” Luthmann said.
He continued, “In Deuteronomy 16:20, the Bible commands, ‘Justice, justice you shall pursue,’ and that, in doing justice, one must not ‘recognize faces.’ But they came at me for who I was and gave others a pass because of who they were and who they could make them. Political contracts were and are at play.”
Luthmann says he believes in the rule of law and Divine justice. “I am armed with the truth and Divine protection, and like a lion, the truth will devour my enemies, and the Lord will protect me from their wicked hands.”
Kamillah Hanks and Kevin Barry Love are two of Luthmann’s targets.
“If I lost everything and three years of my life because of Fake Facebook, I think Kamillah Hanks should have to lose her NYC Council seat.”
Luthmann also says others, including Ronald Castorina and Joe Borelli, should have to pay a legal and political price for their involvement in Fake Facebook.
Stay tuned as Luthmann releases new damning evidence against sitting judges, elected officials, attorneys, political operators, and others as this Fake Facebook series continues.

~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
The news media is a critical check on the powerful, serving as a watchdog to hold elected officials and other public figures accountable for their actions. The media was first called the Fourth Estate in 1821 by Edmund Burke, who wanted to point out the power of the press. The press plays a crucial role in providing citizens with access to information about what is happening in government and by shining a light on corruption, abuse of power, and other forms of wrongdoing.
