Suleiman, Bell Condemn Trump's Vile Remarks Against Women

Atlantic County Democratic Chairman Michael Suleiman and former Atlantic County Freeholder Colin Bell responded to presidential candidate Donald Trump's vile remarks about sexually assaulting women:

"Mr. Trump's remarks are downright disgusting," said Chairman Suleiman. "Making light about taking advantage of women and sexually assaulting them should not be tolerated by anyone, much less by a man seeking to become our next commander-in-chief."

"What Donald Trump described doing to women is not just disgusting, it is also a crime, and there is no statute of limitations on sexual assault in New Jersey," said former Atlantic County prosecutor and freeholder Colin Bell, "Not only should local Republicans denounce his criminal behavior but law enforcement should immediately begin an investigation to determine if he committed any of these depraved acts at his Atlantic City casinos and if there is sufficient evidence to warrant criminal charges."  Bell pointed out that, as in the case of Bill Cosby, it is possible to bring a criminal prosecution even many years after a sexual assault occurred if corroborating evidence is uncovered.

"If, after all this, the Atlantic County Republicans don't join Republican Freeholder Alex Marino in renouncing Mr. Trump, then none of their members deserve to hold elected office anywhere in Atlantic County," said Suleiman.
