Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Dave Brown really ought to do a better job of vetting his candidates.
NewJerseyGlobe reports that Brown has renounced his local candidates in Eatontown because of their illegal fundraising activities and because one of the candidates switched Parties to run.
Last month Brown withdrew his Party’s support for Middletown Township Committee candidate Jean Sager after MMM posted video of her calling cops criminals.
Brown and his Party are standing behind freeholder candidate Moira Nelson despite her social media posts, published by MMM, depicting law enforcement officers as trigger happy racist slave masters who do not belong in our schools.
Nelson has been appearing at events explaining that she loves cops and was only quoting history…like 2018.
When Brown dumped Sager he wrote, “Our Democratic candidates focus their campaigns on fiscal responsibility, supporting law enforcement in their protection of our communities and maintaining Monmouth County’s character and values. Our Party will not stand for this disgraceful way of thinking, which is why we are refusing all resources to the Sager campaign and formally withdrawing the endorsement of the Monmouth County Democrats. Let it be a clear message: The Monmouth County Democratic Party will not stand for this disgraceful behavior now or in the future.”
Stay tuned. There are other municipal candidates running in Monmouth County that most voters will probably conclude do not maintain “Monmouth County’s character and values.” We’ll be writing about them, and sharing more social media posts, soon.
