LoBiondo sits on $250k warchest

Ex-chief of staff still getting $1,500 as monthly consulting fee

Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-Ventnor), who is not seeking re-election after 24 years in Congress, has $255,728 left over in his campaign account.

He’s still getting restitution checks from Andrew McCrosson, his former treasurer who embezzled $458,000 from LoBiondo’s campaign.  McCrosson went sentenced to 30 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution to LoBiondo for Congress.

LoBiondo sent $2,000 to Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River) and $9,000 to five other out-of-state congressmen.

He has not contributed anything to Seth Grossman, who won the Republican primary to replace LoBiondo in New Jersey’s 2nd district.  The twelve-term congressman has also not helped any of the county or local GOP organizations and candidates during the third quarter of 2018.

Mary Annie Harper, who retired as LoBiondo’s chief of staff at the end of 2016 after 29 years, still gets paid $1,500-a-month for consulting services.  LoBiondo announced his retirement last November.

  1. LoBiondo proves he is a RINO not a Republican by with holding his campaign funds back from Seth Grossman! What a disappointment and poor way to leave his Congressional Legacy! If Seth loses when added campaign could help direct more Republicans into vote that will remain as a huge black mark on LoBiondo’s heritage! Boo Hiss – common Frank join real republicans trying to help Pres Trump!
