Star Ledger: Investigate Adler (D) In NJ-3 Sleaze

Things in NJ have gotten so bad with the Democratic incumbents that even the Star Ledger is calling for the Feds:

The evidence shows that Rep. John Adler — and-or his campaign workers — probably did something sleazy. The question is: Did they do something illegal? It’s time for the Federal Election Commission to dust tea party candidate Peter DeStefano for fingerprints and find out.

For months, Republicans have charged that Adler’s campaign, in a tight 3rd District race with GOP’s John Runyan, conjured up DeStefano’s candidacy — talking the no-name into running, captaining his petitions and feeding him talking points. They hoped DeStefano would siphon votes from Runyan. Until now, the only accusation was dirty politics, and that’s not against the law.

…Democrats with knowledge of the Adler campaign have told the Courier-Post that Adler’s campaign manager Geoff Mackler and consultant Steve Ayscue helped launch DeStefano’s candidacy. The complaint insists that Adler was essentially paying people to work on DeStefano’s campaign and has failed to report that contribution.

…Adler has said, “I know nothing. I knew nothing.” The FEC could help clarify matters for him.


Help Jon Runyan send Adler packing.

This is another winnable race.
