When The Facts Get In The Way Of A Good Story

Ridgewood NJ, This afternoon, Josh Gottheimer’s campaign unveiled a list of “Republicans Who Have Endorsed Josh.”

Except…the facts don’t exactly support the headline.

As is so typical of the dishonest Clinton Playbook, Mr. Gottheimer’s “Republican endorsement” list is filled with Democrats and people that aren’t even registered voters in the Fifth District, much less key “Republican endorsements.”

While Mr. Gottheimer doesn’t want the facts to get in the way of a good press cycle, his list, and the publicity stunt promoting it, is absurd.

Like his mentor Hillary Clinton, Mr. Gottheimer is a Democrat who tries to say all the right things in order to hoodwink voters into supporting him – but will pursue a radical left agenda in office, aimed at repaying the special interests that funded his campaign.

Voters in the Fifth District deserve to hear the truth from Josh Gottheimer – not just campaign propaganda.

Gottheimer’s Clinton Foundation Connections Raise Serious Questions

Ridgewood NJ, The American people are just now learning the extent to which members of the Clinton family are willing to sell themselves and access to our government to the highest bidder.

Now, voters in the Fifth District are demanding answers to what role Josh Gottheimer played with the Clinton Foundation.

The very Liberal New York Observer said , “It comes as no surprise that Hillary Clinton’s closest allies are involved in a litany of ethics violations”

Recently Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign chair, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, came under investigation by the FBI and Department of Justice over questionable contributions to his 2013 campaign.

We already know, for example, that during Josh Gottheimer’s tenure at Microsoft, Bill Clinton was paid $225,000 to give one speech.

But the four years during which Mr. Gottheimer served as Executive Vice President for Burson-Marsteller are completely opaque.

Voters of the Fifth District want answers.

During his tenure at Burson-Marsteller, through how many clients did Josh Gottheimer funnel money to the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation?
Did any of his clients that donated to the Clinton Foundation subsequently lobby the State Department during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State?
Will Josh Gottheimer share his Burson-Marsteller client list, so we know the specific special interests to which he is tied?

Ridgewood NJ, Now that Josh Gottheimer “family member” Hillary Clinton has declared herself the Democratic Party nominee, constituents of the Fifth District deserve to know where Mr. Gottheimer stands on Mrs. Clinton’s policies and priorities.

Does Josh Gottheimer Support “Family Member” Hillary Clinton’s Use of Her Private Email Server?

Clinton’s Claim That Her “Predecessors Did The Same Thing” With A Secret Server Has Been Rated As Mostly False By PolitiFact. “Clinton said, regarding her State Department email practices, ‘my predecessors did the same thing.’ This is a misleading claim chiefly because only one prior secretary of state regularly used email, Colin Powell. Powell did use a personal email address for government business, however he did not use a private server kept at his home, as Clinton did. We rate this claim Mostly False.” (Lauren Carroll, “Hillary Clinton Said ‘My Predecessors Did The Same Thing,’ With Email” PolitiFact , 3/9/16)

10 Exciting Races to Watch in Bergen County

10 Exciting Races to Watch in Bergen County
Nov. 03 Bergen County, Election 2014, North Jersey no comments
By Matthew Gilson | The Save Jersey Blog

Matt Rooney already gave you ten New Jersey races to watch statewide on Tuesday night, Save Jerseyans.

Without further ado, here are ten worth closely tracking in Bergen County alone, starting with the Garden State’s single most consequential 2014 contest:

1.) County Executive/Freeholder
Nothing else comes close with control of the most powerful office the most county at stake. Incumbent Kathe Donovan has seen the gap between herself and Freeholder Jim Tedesco close in recent weeks and the race may be too close to call. The under card is the battle to take out incumbent freeholder Democrats David Ganz and Joan Voss waged by Republicans Bernadette Walsh and Bob Avery.

2.) Can Scott Garrett win Bergen?
Despite a mini-scare, it appears that Roy has definitely Cho-ked this race away. However, it still remains to be seen whether Garrett will carry the Bergen portion of the district. If he does, it may put this race out of play for 2016 and return Roy Cho to trying on new empty suits.

3.) North Arlington
A swing town and southernmost in the county, Save Jersey previewed this race with an interview with Councilman Dan Pronti who is seeking re-election. The town will prove critical to running up numbers for Kathe Donovan in her south Bergen base, and a win by Council Bianchi over Mayor Massa along with his running mates would put to end eight years of Democratic rule.

4.) Paramus
As important as North Arlington and the south is to Donovan, Tedesco will need to run up numbers in the town he formerly served as mayor to have a shot at what would still be considered an upset. A popular incumbent Democratic mayor headlines the ticket but the race is a battle right to the end.
