  1. Good for you, Caroline! said at 11:31 am on May 3rd, 2018:

    Glad you get to leave the Jersey swamp. Am sure you will help in cleaning out the DC swamp. Always felt she was under- appreciated and under- utilized in LD11. Will miss ya, but best of luck!

    Caroline Casagrande certainly knows how to feed at the public trough. While she was in the Legislature, she accepted lavish gifts from those who were seeking to influence the political process. (See the link below.) Talk about sleazy and unethical.


    The NJ Legislature is a much better place without Caroline Casagrande in it.

    who has not traveled overseas in various capacities, while in office. Why can Democrats take all kinds of trips, ( such as our pal Menendez?)contributions, ( such as the erstwhile “Clinton Family Foundation?”- whatever,) as a course of business, but when Republicans do, they are crooks? Maybe people in front of glass screens shouldn’t throw written stones..

  5. Jealous, DH? said at 7:16 pm on May 3rd, 2018:

    Jobs have to be filled. Would rather have a conservative down there, than the looney tax- and-spend libs currently occupying the governor’s office and larger legislative majorities in Trenton!

  6. Always such negativity from one so very, very dirty. said at 4:27 am on May 4th, 2018:

    Dirty Dirtbag is nothing but a smear merchant who does his best to slime good people and neighbors, anywhere he can find them on the web. There have been some truly vile comments from that one. Pay him no mind.

    Karma’s a bitch, dude. Take a shower.

    Poster # 4, we were discussing Caroline Casagrande’s sins. We why you run off on a tangent and try to deflect attention away from what Casagrande did but mentioning the the unethical conduct of others? Are you trying to suggest that because others have have acted in a sleazy manner that it is somehow okay for Caroline Casagrande to do the same? Please tell us that your moral compass is not that perverse.

    Jim, I really think you should see a mental health professional. Not joking, it is beyond crazy now…

    Guessing, much like thinking, is not something that you do particularly well, Poster # 9. I am NOT Jim Sa or even Jim Sage.
