Pallone Expected Anna Little’s Primary Victory

Charles Measley is hilarious.

The Ryder University student, Rumson County Committeeman, and founder of the FrankPalloneNotForNewJersey blog  wakes up every morning thinking of ways to get Frank Pallone out of office.

Early this year when it appeared that no Republican would step up to run against Pallone, Charles set out to find a candidate.  Anna Little was still running for U.S. Senate at that point.

As the self appointed Chairman of the Defeat Pallone Brigade, Charles spoke to dozens of potential candidates; elected officials, former candidates, even bloggers, all of whom had 4 million and 1 good reasons not to run against the incumbent congressman, until Ernesto Cullari said yes.  Charles became a campaign manager.

Pallone doesn’t seem to mind. 

Here, Pallone poses with Charles wearing a Bayshore Tea Party t-shirt during an April 2011 beach clean up in Belmar.

Over the Memorial Day weekend last month, Charles was driving down Ocean Avenue in Long Branch when he spotted Pallone gardening in his front yard. Never one to miss an opportunity, Charles stopped to ask the congressman who he preferred his opponent to be; Little or Cullari.  Charles recorded the conversation.

    I’m not sure because of the passing cars – did Frank say the Tea Party is “kind of lame?”

    I abhor the his politics but I have to admit he sounds like a regular guy. I mean really would you expect to find your congressman working in the garden in his front yard and then when you approach him and start talking to him (and you look like Charles)and he doesn’t call security guards or something. I bet he would be OK to have a beer with. Still not voting for him though.

    “and you look like Charles”

    I know not everyone can look as good looking as me.

    Charles, Not fernuttin but I have seen your picture and if you walked up to me while I was gardening I would be a little nervous. I am sure everything would be fine once I got to know but before that…

    Is this even legal? I mean, to go on someone’s property and record them without their knowledge or consent? Not a Pallone fan myself, but this seems a bit out of bounds…

    @Meyer – that is Charles MO – out of bounds.
