NJ Democrats Call Political Corruption A Distraction
Now that the Democrats have decided to take government ethics and corruption off the table in this year’s campaign, we won’t have to hear Jon Corzine paint himself as the man to clean up Trenton - an outsider that can’t be bought. Gee, we thought Senator Corzine wanted to make restoring trust in government and ending the “corruption tax” a major issue in the Governor’s campaign. A pretty hard sell when he's been bank rolling all of the major players in New Jersey's corruption scandals.
Bonnie Watson Coleman, chairwoman of the Democratic State Committee, said in a statement Thursday that the GOP's scouring of the Norcross tape for political ammunition is misguided. "They obviously want to distract attention away from the issues. But all they are really doing is advertising the fact they have no record, no constructive ideas and no ability to articulate a positive political message," she said.
We look forward to a campaign based upon the Democrat Party’s record, ideas and positive political message. When does that begin? In terms of Republican records and constructive ideas please see Doug Forrester, John Murphy, Robert Schroeder and Bret Schundler for starters. Maybe the MSM should stop being distracted by Corzine's money and begin to report on the records and positions of the candidates. The more scrutiny the better.
