Charles Measley is hilarious.
The Ryder University student, Rumson County Committeeman, and founder of the FrankPalloneNotForNewJersey blog wakes up every morning thinking of ways to get Frank Pallone out of office.
Early this year when it appeared that no Republican would step up to run against Pallone, Charles set out to find a candidate. Anna Little was still running for U.S. Senate at that point.
As the self appointed Chairman of the Defeat Pallone Brigade, Charles spoke to dozens of potential candidates; elected officials, former candidates, even bloggers, all of whom had 4 million and 1 good reasons not to run against the incumbent congressman, until Ernesto Cullari said yes. Charles became a campaign manager.
Pallone doesn’t seem to mind.
Here, Pallone poses with Charles wearing a Bayshore Tea Party t-shirt during an April 2011 beach clean up in Belmar.
Over the Memorial Day weekend last month, Charles was driving down Ocean Avenue in Long Branch when he spotted Pallone gardening in his front yard. Never one to miss an opportunity, Charles stopped to ask the congressman who he preferred his opponent to be; Little or Cullari. Charles recorded the conversation.
