A Republican Disgrace
By Richard J. LaRossa

Marcia Karrow picked a strange day to smear Mike Doherty.

Two years ago, the New Jersey GOP, lead by State Chairman Tom Wilson and Assembly Republican Leader Alex DeCroce, issued a statement condemning a Republican consultant for a direct mail piece “used as an attack on a colleague”, calling that attack “inappropriate and offensive” and “not representing the values embraced by our party.”

The statement went on to state that the consultant who produced the advertisement had “crossed a line and we believe it would no longer be appropriate for him to do work on behalf of any candidate running as a Republican in this state.”

Here we are two years later and a different Republican consultant has attacked a different colleague in an “inappropriate and offensive” way that, I hope, doesn’t represent “the values embraced by our party.” I’m still waiting to hear the GOP establishment’s moral outrage.

Here’s the story: Assemblyman Mike Doherty is challenging Senator Marcia Karrow in the 23rd district. Doherty is running with Steve Lonegan and Karrow is Christie.

Karrow chose Memorial Day weekend to put out a direct mailer and a robo-call that accused Mike Doherty of supporting "Surrender in Iraq".

This is the same Mike Doherty who, after graduating from West Point, served for eight years in the United States Army. Mike was a missile defense officer on the trip wire between the West and the Soviet Union.

Mike and his wife, Linda, have three grown sons in military service. Their son Ryan just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq with the United States Marine Corps. He will shortly be redeployed to Afghanistan. Their son Matt is set to be deployed to Iraq with the United States Army. Their son Jared is stationed on remote duty in another hot spot – near the North-South Korean border – with the U.S. Air Force.

Default Chris Chistie plays too many of his own games to be Governor of New Jersey.

I don't trust a former prosecutor to be much of a governor anyway. Look next door at what happened when they where hoodwinked to vote for Spitzer. That guy made up convictions, used and ruined innocent people just to get his name in the paper every day, then the fools voted him in.

LOL - so anyone with a military service record is beyond criticism? Grow up and grow a pair, Mr. Doherty.

More garbage from the Democratic Party who trashed John McCain for a year straight without blinking an eye. (And he did more for this country than sit behind a computer ready to push a button and launch a missile.)
