Steve Sweeney’s Hissy Fit

hissy fit saving faceNJ Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-West Deptford) is having another tantrum.

The puerile legislator who called Governor Chris Christie a prick over a budget veto and responded to Superstorm Sandy by calling for the elimination of beach badges on the Jersey Shore is upset that he will face competition in November.

Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R-Westfield) had the audacity to recruit a strong candidate, Niki Trunk, to challenge Sweeney in the 3rd legislative district. Sweeney’s been pissed about that for months, as if he is entitled to being reelected without having to make his case to the voters in November.

Sweeney went off the deep end when he learned that Kean donated $8200 to Trunk’s campaign.

Yesterday Sweeney knocked all Republican sponsored legislation off of the Senate’s agenda.  The following bills won’t be heard in committee next week:

S1071, permitting conversion of fines for violation of certain municipal ordinances into tax liens; S1726, requiring municipalities to comply with state audit prior to receiving state aid; S1852, authorizing municipalities to deliver property tax bills, construction permits and receipts for payment via email; S2494, permitting municipalities to use beach fees to improve tourist areas; S2617, properly closing the hazardous Fenimore Landfill; S2618, concerning valuation of properties condemned for dune construction or beach replenishment; and S2457, making discretionary driver’s license suspension for first offense of driving without motor vehicle liability insurance.

Let’s get rid of Steve Sweeney.  Donate to Niki Trunk’s campaign account.  Volunteer for her campaign.

    Hopefully, the GOP will run a strong campaign to win, and boot Sweeney out.

    Kean’s in my district and I’m donating to Trunk’s campaign. Sweeney’s got to go!

    For the BSTPG to criticize a Democrat, the Senate President of all things who covers the entire state.

    But where is the BSTPG??

    Oh, that’s right. They are primarying good Republicans.

    For once Dogood has it 100% right.

    Let’s see if the BTPFrauds step up and go right for the Senate President. For that matter, let’s see if Gov Christie steps up in taking on some D seats.

    FOR ONCE? I am almost nearly always right.

    Silence, you.
