Senator Steven Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris) stated the following about an Asbury Park Press news investigation of an alleged Sandy charity from Sparta, boasting some $1 million in public donations:
The Asbury Park Press reported on Sunday that a Sparta couple created a Sandy relief fund, which is not registered to operate in New Jersey and admittedly does not have the federal 501(c)(3) status that it claimed on its website. The investigation revealed that fund has yet to distribute more than $800,000 in cash donations.
“Any attempt to deceive good-willed residents or business owners into funding a fake charity can be a serious criminal offense — attempting to capitalize off of Superstorm Sandy victims would be unforgivable and incomprehensible,” Oroho stated. “I have confidence in New Jersey’s Attorney General and Division of Consumer Affairs to investigate this or any other questionable Superstorm Sandy charities to determine any ill-intent or fraud. Sandy-related charities should be on notice that their financial records will be checked by state authorities.”

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
