Maggie Moran, the Managing Director of the Asbury Park based Democratic consulting firm Kivvit and the wife of Belmar Mayor “Lawless Matt” Doherty, announced on facebook yesterday that she has donated to the reelection campaign of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Wasserman Schultz is the Chair of the Democratic National Committee until Friday. She announced her resignation after DNC emails that proved she rigged Hillary Clinton’s Democrat nomination for president were released. She was then named Honorary Chair of Clinton’s campaign.
That’s perfectly consistent with the Monmouth County Democrats’ ethos that it is OK to cheat and the ends justifies the means.
In the Clinton universe a little email scandal should never be a career killer.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz will open and close the Democratic National Convention in Philadephia this week and then step down has Chair of the Democratic National Committee, ostensibly because of the leaked emails from the DNC proving that Clinton’s nomination was rigged by the committee and Bernie Sanders never had a chance.
It seems Wasserman Schultz’s apparent forced resignation is really just a transfer. Hillary Clinton announced this evening that Wasserman Schultz will become the Honorary Chair of the Democrat presidential campaign.
Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who faced increasing calls to step down in the wake of the DNC email leak, says she will resign from her position after taking part in this week’s convention. Wasserman announced her decision in a statement released on Sunday afternoon, though she made no mention… Read the rest of this entry »

MERCERVILLE, N.J. — A New Jersey administrative law judge on Monday heard two challenges to GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s eligibility to appear on the New Jersey ballot, based upon the Texas senator’s having been born in Canada.

In the 18th century, Bonnie Prince Charlie, aka Charles Edward Stuart, was the last Jacobite Pretender to the throne of England. The Bonnie Prince thought the English throne was his birthright, so he traveled the countryside picking fights with anyone who disagreed.
Donald Trump, our current Bonnie Prince, acts very much the same. His intemperance and penchant for vengeance is manifest in response to any challenge to him, with no crack too lowbrow, be it McCain’s heroics, Carly’s face or Megyn’s menstrual cycle. Only a Jacobean sense of entitlement could bring a Wharton grad into the gutter. Even Jeb knew the Presidency had to be earned, not inherited or claimed.

Most so called experts are saying that unless Donald Trump wins both the Florida and Ohio primaries tonight that he won’t have the 1237 delegates needed to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination outright. Two of Trump’s three remaining competitors for the nomination are openly angling for a brokered nominating convention.
New Jersey’s presidential primary could make a difference in who is nominated for the first time in decades. Trump is poll obsessed and knows that Governor Chris Christie’s approval numbers at home are in the tank. As The Donald has been saying about Marco Rubio in Florida, Christie couldn’t get elected dog catcher in New Jersey.
Christie has declared himself the most prominent of Trump’s endorsements.
TRENTON — Donald Trump is probably the main reason Gov. Chris Christie didn’t win the Republican nomination for president, his campaign manager told NJ Advance Media. But even though Trump dashed Christie’s White House dreams, Ken McKay says the governor’s controversial endorsement of the real estate mogul should be taken as nothing more than an act… Read the rest of this entry »
