Earlen hits Singh over duplicate ballot mailer

Burlington County Republican Chairman Sean Earlen dinged U.S. Senate candidate Hirsh Singh over a letter the candidate sent telling voters to request a duplicate ballot if they had voter for one of his primary opponents.

“I’m appalled by Hirsh Singh’s reckless and ill-advised efforts to encourage voter fraud,” Earlen said. “This unprecedented election is confusing enough without a perennial candidate throwing a political Hail Mary and recommending voters return multiple ballots — which is clearly against the law.”

Singh was told not to send the letter again by Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who warned the letter violated state and federal election law.

The letter also drew condemnation from Republican county chairmen in Camden and Essex Counties.

“This blatant ignorance further emphasizes why 17 county GOP organizations, including Burlington County, endorsed Rik Mehta over Singh. Voters must say no to the Singh-Richter slate who will say anything and do anything in their quest to grab a title,” Earlen said. “This is the latest example of why all Republicans must say no to these dirty, underhanded tricks by Singh and Richter and support real conservatives Rik Mehta and Kate Gibbs in next month’s Primary Election.”
