The race between Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and Democrat Sean Byrnes, a former one term Middletown Township Committeeman, to succeed Senator Joe Kyillos, has gone to the dogs.
Byrnes and his dogs appeared in a facebook video yesterday criticizing O’Scanlon for voting against a bill that would ban abusive puppy mills in New Jersey.
O’Scanlon didn’t pull any punches in response.
O’Scanlon said the bill that he voted against was a horrific piece of legislation that would have shut down good breeders who love and care for dogs and their welfare.
The bill was designed to let dishonest people like Sean Bynes attack those who really care about the law and getting the law right.
New Jersey already has the toughest animal welfare laws in the nation. Sean Byrnes, as a lawyer ought to know that.
