Jeff Van Drew, now a congressman, during a 2018 ceremony. .Press Release by: Cape GOPTen days after a vile, racist mailer assaulted county voters, Cape May County Democrat Leader Brendan Sciarra and appointed State Senator Bob Andrzejczak remain shamefully silent; refusing to condemn the attack in fear of upsetting their Camden County Party Bosses behind the hit piece. Despite widespread and growing condemnation, multiple mailers, utilizing the same despicable themes in support of the Andrzejczak Team, continue to pound the drum of racism and distort Antwan McClellan’s laudable life story.The race-baiting mailer, which depicts African-American District 1 Assembly Candidate McClellan as “deadbeat”, features a picture where McClellan’s complexion is darkened and placed in an Aunt Jemima/Uncle Ben-style circle. The direct mail piece was ordered and paid for by General Majority PAC, led by Camden County Political Boss George Norcross.Democrat Governor Phil Murphy and Lt. Governor Shiela Oliver – Photo Credit: Insider NJOn Saturday September 21st, Democrat Governor Phil Murphy and Lt. Governor Shiela Oliver released a joint statement condemning the attack ad, calling the piece “disgusting and offensive”.  The Governor’s comments followed earlier statements by two leading NJ African-American voices, Democrat State Party Chair John Currie and Essex County Democrat Committee Chairman Leroy Jones.“I absolutely condemn this mailer. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a Democrat or Republican,” Jones said. “…this is unacceptable across the board.”Cape May County Republican Chairman Marcus Karavan called on his Democrat counterpart Brendan Sciarra and the entire 2019 Democrat ticket to immediately condemn the mailer and disavow the support of the Norcross Super PAC.“After ten long days, the Democrats’ silence on this racist attack is deafening,” Karavan said. “There should be no safe place for this vile, degrading rhetoric in today’s politics.  These desperate tactics are further proof that the Democrat ticket, from top to bottom, is bankrupt of ideas, has no record of achievement to bring to the voters and is utterly controlled by powerful forces outside of Cape May County.  I call on the following Democrat officials and candidates to immediately, loudly and publicly disavow and condemn this repugnant and racist attack.”Cape May County Democrat Leader Brendan SciarraCongressman Jeff Van DrewAppointed State Senator Bob AndrzejczakAppointed Assemblyman Matt MilamAssemblyman Bruce LandFreeholder Candidate Joyce GouldFreeholder Candidate Elizabeth Caseylast_img
