From Passaic County: Samuel Rivera, the mayor of Passaic; Assemblyman Rev. Alfred E. Steele, who is also a Passaic County undersheriff; Passaic councilman, Marcellus Jackson and former Passaic councilman Jonathon Soto.We are locked in a Groundhog Day loop in this state. Here’s what we wrote more than two years ago. We could publish the same post every other week and appear current with the latest news cycle.
From Essex County: Assemblyman Mims Hackett, Jr., who is also the mayor of Orange and Keith Reid, the chief of staff to Newark City Council President Mildred Crump.
From Atlantic County: Pleasantville councilman Pete Callaway, Pleasantville Board of Education President James Pressley and three members of the Pleasantville Board of Education - Jayson Adams, Rafeal Velez and James McCormick.
When are people going to wake up and realize politicians and other “public servants” have been using the excuse of helping the least amongst us as an excuse to enrich themselves and their friends? The Poor, the children! Baloney!As we mentioned in our last post, apparently the situation in New Jersey has not reached critical mass, if you believe reports in the Star-Leger – “GOP faces a daunting task in legislative races”. How can this be given the state’s financial condition, the Democrat’s culture and record of corruption and the crushing tax burden taxpayers in New Jersey must bear?
There is so much money being spent by government that it’s nearly impossible to stay ahead of the brazen squandering of hard-earned taxpayer dollars. Everyday there is a new outrage uncovered. Fraud, bribes, theft, pay-to-play, financial mismanagement and the list goes on-and-on. How bad do things need to be before it dawns on voters that they are being taken for suckers?
Last year, Assemblyman Michael Carroll provided the explanation – the majority of people voting for the profligate spenders and corrupt politicians aren’t the folks picking up the tab.
Most serious political corruption tends to be an urban problem. And a Democrat problem. Not because Republicans are inherently more virtuous, but because they tend to approach government from a different perspective than do Democrats. Dems see government as an engine for legally stealing from A to benefit B. Republicans, contrariwise, see government as a bulwark to prevent B from stealing from A.Why any taxpayer in New Jersey will vote for a Democrat this fall is beyond us. Tax receivers we can unfortunately understand, but a taxpayer has to be nuts to vote for a candidate whose Party thrives on wasting and stealing their money.
First, victims of theft tend to object, but if the thief is playing Robin Hood, he creates a substantial constituency for theft. If the beneficiaries of the theft are the residents of a particular district, while the victims live somewhere else, Robin will repeatedly win office in a landslide, even if he’s not exactly pure of heart, and takes a cut for himself and his band of merry marauders.
