AG: Forrester’s Campaign Contributions Okay
Forrester cleared of criminal wrongdoing over contributions
The New Jersey Attorney General's Office decided to let us know today that contributions Republican Doug Forrester made to his gubernatorial campaign and to other candidates were legal. The Newsday article says this ruling puts to rest questions about whether Forrester made illegal campaign donations.
It's always nice to be vindicated," Forrester said Thursday. "We've known for a year now we've done everything right."Yes, in New Jersey only Democrat candidates can make campaign contributions.
The Corzine campaign, which requested the investigation, said the determination puts Forrester on notice that making future campaign contributions "may well constitute criminal violations of New Jersey's statutes."
