(Absecon) Today, Atlantic County Democratic Chairman Michael Suleiman is calling on the Atlantic County Republicans, specifically incumbent Republican Freeholders Frank Formica, Maureen Kern, and James Bertino, who are seeking re-election, to denounce Republican congressional candidate Seth Grossman for his hateful comments.
"You would think that the Atlantic County Republicans learned their lesson after Freeholder John Carman, but unfortunately they never cease to amaze me," said Suleiman. "While some prominent Republicans have denounced Mr. Grossman's stupid comments, there's radio silence from the Republicans on the Freeholder Board. Are they more concerned with winning than doing the right thing?
Grossman has doubled- and tripled-down on his comments that diversity is "a bunch of crap and un-American." While the Chairman of the Republican State Committee and former Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno have both denounced Grossman, Formica, Kern, and Bertino have failed to do so. Even after Grossman's vile comments, the Atlantic County Republicans posted on social media that they are "strong and unified behind" their ticket.
