 Hackensack NJ,  Josh Gottheimer is running a campaign based on name-calling and lies – don’t take our word for it – The Record’s exhaustive fact check exposes Gottheimer’s falsehoods and fabrications.

  • THE RECORD: Garrett Tax Charges Are A Gottheimer Lie: “Garrett has not voted to raise taxes, according to Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, a group that urges public officials to pledge not to raise taxes and tracks whether they follow the pledge. Norquist said that arguing that opposing spending somehow raises taxes is “too weird for words.” (Garrett vs. Gottheimer: Fact-checking North Jersey’s rough ‘n’ tumble 5th Congressional race, The Record, 11/4/2016)
  • THE RECORD: Garrett Supports 9/11 Responders: “Garrett responded with his own ad featuring firefighters, one of whom is a Republican state legislator who contributed to Garrett’s campaign, accusing Gottheimer of telling an “outright lie.” (Garrett vs. Gottheimer: Fact-checking North Jersey’s rough ‘n’ tumble 5th Congressional race, The Record, 11/4/2016)
  • THE RECORD: Gottheimer “assaulted” neighbor and “bought her silence.” “Gottheimer ‘aggressively intimidated and assaulted’ a woman who lived in a Washington, D.C., building where Gottheimer was condo association board president.” (Garrett vs. Gottheimer: Fact-checking North Jersey’s rough ‘n’ tumble 5th Congressional race, The Record, 11/4/2016)
  • THE RECORD: Gottheimer failed to pay his personal property taxes. “Gottheimer “failed to pay his property taxes on the same luxury DC condo six times.” [Gottheimer] “paid the amount due, $2,433 including interest and penalties, in January.” (Garrett vs. Gottheimer: Fact-checking North Jersey’s rough ‘n’ tumble 5th Congressional race, The Record, 11/4/2016)
  • THE RECORD: Gottheimer supports “outrageous Washington spending.” “Gottheimer supported spending millions of tax dollars on studies to determine “if a bumblebee is hairier than a squirrel, to monitor shrimp on a treadmill, and wine-tasting parties in India.” (Garrett vs. Gottheimer: Fact-checking North Jersey’s rough ‘n’ tumble 5th Congressional race, The Record, 11/4/2016)
