NJEA funding Dem related BoE slate through Giaimo’s Assembly account
When Democrat attorney Tom Giaimo lost to Amy Handlin and Serena DiMaso last year for State Assembly, he did not close his campaign account. Rather, he kept raising money, most of it from the NJEA’s political action committee and politically connected lawyers like himself. He used the cash to repay a loan to himself and to fund his Middletown Board of Education slate of Giaimo Fox and Wright. Giaimo’s Assembly account and the joint Middletown Board of Education account have the same Democrat treasurer.
