Pallone Operative Slugs Little Senior Citizen Volunteer

Competing sign teams came to blows last evening in Atlantic Highlands when long time Pallone supporter Joe Hawley assaulted Atlantic Highlands GOP chairwoman Jane Frotten, 68.

According to Frotten, Hawley was interfering with a Little sign team in the borough when she showed up and tried to reason with the him.  Hawley screamed disparaging remarks about Jane’s husband Bernie, 79, and pushed her.  Jane, who serves as Anna Little’s campaign treasurer, hit him back.

The Atlantic Highlands police were called to the scene.  No charges have yet to be filed.

“He probably skipped his meds,” said Frotten about her assaulter.

Hawley could not be reached for comment.

    Even at my size I would be afraid to take Jane on. Joe is lucky he didn’t get the right hook.

    What kind of man hits a woman you ask?

    A Frank Pallone kind of man…that’s who.

    til Election Day: let’s be the first campaign to give out helmets instead of baseball caps, so we can survive their “get-out-the vote” effort!

    And the Democrats call US extremists? I hope someone got it on video tape

    When you can’t win in the arena of ideas and intellectual exchange, you resort to brute force!

    Wouldn’t Jane Frotten be a “Little Operative”? Instead of just a volunteer? Or, better yet, wouldn’t a long time supporter be a volunteer also? just sayin’….

    By all accounts, the miscreant sounds like the sort that gains notoriety on “reality show television.” The video is posted on http://www.frankpallonenotfornewjersey.com and as you will hear, all resemblance of intellect was long gone before Hawley struck Mrs. Frotton. You can plainly hear him using foul language and insults in response to her reasoned arguments.
