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.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
