REPUBLICAN TERRORISTS VANDALIZE DEM VANS
(HAMILTON) -- Republican dirty tricks got off to an early start this morning with the slashing of the tires of three Get Out The Vote Vans at the Democratic headquarters located on RT 33 in Hamilton around 2:00 AM.
"There was one woman in the campaign headquarters around 2 AM when a gang of cheesy thugs descended on the parking lot and began to rip up signs and then vandalized the trucks," said Mercer County Democratic Chairman Rich McClellan, "Luckilly, we had dispersed our fleet so that this sneak attack had minimal effect on our get out the vote effort."
"It is clear that this is a calculated attempt to drive down voter turnout by a group of candidates and their lackeys who take campaign contributions from criminals, refuse to report campaign contributions and engage in character assasination and slander as everyday campaign tactics," added McClellan.
Earlier in the campaign, Republican officials and County Clerk candidate Cathy DiCostanzo accepted, and then refused to return, over $30,000 in tainted campaign contributions from convicted felon Harry Parkin and his associated who were jailed for bribery and fraud against Mercer County.
The Republicans have also admitted their failure to report an inkind campaign contribution from an area landlord for over $17,000 per year in rent free campaign space.
The incident has been reported to the Hamilton Township Police Department.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
