Staffers for Tom Kean, Jr., the New Jersey Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, arrived at Kean’s campaign headquarters this morning to find the front doors vandalized and padlocked. Other entrances to the building were also jammed, resulting in problems for the other tenant in the building.
Predictably, each side reacted with the dignity and statesmanship that has characterized the run-up to this election:
Kean campaign manager Evan Kozlow called the incident a “desperate ploy” by the Democrats that will “not prevent us from informing voters that Bob Menendez is under federal criminal investigation and is unfit to serve in the United States Senate.”
Not to be outdone in the “Desperate Ploy” Department, the democrat/liberal/progressive side responded:
Menendez spokesman Matthew Miller called the incident a “desperate ploy” by the Republicans to garner a last-minute sympathy vote and “the most transparent publicity stunt since Britney Spears’ Las Vegas wedding.”
Politics in New Jersey could gag a friggin’ maggot.
