Atlantic County Sheriff James McGettigan says GOP County Executive Dennis Levinson showed poor judgment when he used taxpayer funds to hire a lawyer for works for harcore pornography websites to serve as a labor attorney.

McGettigan, the Democratic candidate for County Executive, said that lawyer Eric Bernstein "moderates chat.ynotmasters.com, a website dispensing free legal advice to pornographers. Chat.ynotmasters.com is billed as the ultimate adult webmaster resource site, and is a one-stop-shop for peddlers of the online hardcore pornography industry."
In 2003, the Star-Ledger said that Bernstein, "the municipal attorney for five towns in Hunterdon, Warren and Somerset counties has been offering free legal advice to operators of pornography Web sites as a way to drum up business for the Internet law portion of his Warren Township-based practice."  Bernstein has lost many of his government clients over the last four years.  

“The public has a right to know why and how the Levinson Administration hired this porn lawyer, and whether he’s representing us on our dime, not pornographers," said McGettigan.   "As of this morning there are 234 sex offenders in Atlantic County. We don’t need a representative of our government giving away free advice on how to skirt the law and access hardcore pornography,”
